Help chosing between 3 hotels

I am taking three teenagers, 17, 17 and 15 on holiday for a week. I really need a break to recharge batteries but the youngsters want a bit of life with bars/restaurants for the evenings. I am looking at Cabanas Resort., Vila Gale and Vila Gale Albacaura and would e grateful for any thoughts on which would best suit our party. Getting to the beach by boat sounds fun but we would want the pool to be really nice with plenty of shade and big enough for busy peak season (first week in Auugust!). 15-20 min walk to restaurants/bars ok, and would enjoy a bike ride too. Would also appreciate any recommendations as to whether to go B&B, or half board. Thank you!

Cabanas will probably suit you best. Go for B&B, there are plenty of restaurants which are economically priced in Cabanas. And enough to do at night for your children.

I would go for Cabanas or Vila Gale in Tavira town (not the Albacora). The Albacora is quite a way out of the town and bars/restaurants and is quite isolated. Whichever you chose, I would go B&B. There are plenty of restaurants in both Cabanas or Tavira town and it would be a shame to tie yourself down to a hotel restaurant. Cabanas would probably suit you as it's perfectly safe for young people to wander around and there are a couple of late night music bars (although they themselves might think it quieter and prefer Tavira!).
