Paraiso de albufeira or natura algarve please help?

Had a holiday in August stayed at natura algarve hotel location was fantastic looking to book for next year in September but can't choose to go back to natura where we really enjoyed or try the paraiso hotel as price is good but not quite sure of location loved natura as within 5 mins of walking there was restaurants bars etc is it the same for paraiso? Travelling with 3 children would anyone recommend paraiso over natura for kids as aswell as we loved location there wasn't any entertainment on at natura and kids got bored..... Any help would be much appreciated supposed to be booking this week!!

Paraiso is situated just before the watches roundabout inbetween the new and old town, not everything is directly on your doorstep like Natura but only a 10/15 mins walk either way to old or new town area. I do believe though Paraiso do cater for children with entertainment. Hopefully other members can comment.

There is a little play-park just behind Paraiso in Valmangude, apart from which most of the kids entertainment .. as you`ll know ... is out of town. You could also check ALTO da COLINA in Sta Eulalia which has an adventure park and kids club. You`d still be close to the busy area around Quinta Pedra dos Bicos.

The Paraiso is a massive complex and looks impressive. Had a few drinks in there and was advised the apartments are massive.

It looks geared up for families, though there is it seems an AI option and there were a few 'crowds/groups' when I popped in (no issues though). There is a 'kids club' and Thomas Cook have a presence there.

At a good price, it's well worth considering.

We have stayed in Paraiso and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Theres nice grounds surrounding the pool area - ideal for kids as they have space to run around and play. Another plus is that there is a courtesy bus running several times a day in and out of the old town. Doesn't run in the evenings.

We have also stayed at the Paraiso with children and it was very good for them. The rooms were OK not the best but entertainment was good, we did make the mistake of going all inclusive and would never do it again in Albufeira as so many excellent places to eat.

Still can't make our mind up we daren't book until we are sure.....there is only a couple hundred of pounds difference between the hotels like natura as everything is on the doorstep apart from old town is the paraiso on a road full of bars and restaurants like the natures or do u have to walk far to get to the busiest place nearby any help would be fab

We stayed at Paraiso this year. No kids with us, but we noticed how good it would be for them if we had!

Loads of green space for them to play, and indoor & outdoor pools.

Not right on the doorstep for a beach, but only a short walk or bus ride.

Hotel is on the same road as a few Cafe's / bars and a couple of very good supermarkets.

The two main entertainment areas are within a nice strolling distance, but if your kids are inpatient you can take the Wally trolley and travel between the two areas (The old town & the strip).

I would definitely recommend Paraiso for location & kids amusment/ entertainment

Talking of entertainment for kids (or big kids!!) is there any amusement/games arcades in Albufeira? I mean the likes of air hockey, racing games etc?

Never noticed an amusement arcade in Albufeira. I believe Slot machines are only allowed in Casinos so the real money makers in amusement arcades are not allowed thus making it difficult for any games arcade to make a decent profit
