I would recommend Santa Eulalia in Albufeira.

There's lots of good bars and restaurants, it's a 10 minute walk from the Strip in Albufeira new town, but the beach is pretty much on your doorstep, and Albufeira Old Town is also easily accessible from there.

Ideal I think, (but then I am biased cos I love it there...) because you have the beach, great amenities to hand, a ten minute walk to the Strip, or buses / taxi's to take you to the Old Town (5 minutes in a cab) and farther afield.

As a family, we prefer to stay in apartments (Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos) but the Oura Praia Hotel comes to mind, as we stay just over the road from it.

Details about it can be found here...

www.clubepraiadaoura.com

I have read about Hotel Grande Real Santa Eulalia Resort and Hotel Spa on this site, and it looks and sounds fab!

Have a look here...

portugal-info.net/hoteisreal/santaeulalia.htm

You can also find people's reviews of both these hotels here on this site.

I am sure someone else will come along with information about more hotels in the area soon.

Hope this is of some help.

we prefer praia de rocha, and for a good class hotel either the jupitor or the casino hotel are both good. both over look the beach which is miles long and good eating and bars nearby.not as big and busy as albuferia or eulalia , bg
