This was our first trip to Portugal & found it to be very enjoyable. The apartments were big and spacious and well equiped with washing machine dishwasher microwave & fridge freezer.The complex was spotless & staff friendly. The pool was nice and relaxing although a little cold. The old town was about a 20min walk & the strip about 15mins in other direction.I would recomend these apartments to anyone.

We booked this holiday for 2 adults and 2 children, we read the reveiws before booking and the petty negatives are not justified at all! This hotel was lovely the people were nice, friendly and helpful, the rooms were beautiful and cleaned daily the only moan I have is that our apartment was car park facing and not much of a view but who cares your on holiday!!

The pool areas were cleaned daily and were of a very high standard not much for kids to do but they made there own fun as kids do,

The bar was great lots of cheap cocktails and offers on every night the entertainment was ok not great but the hotel makes up for it,

Only a short walk to the strip so not right on top of all the noise if you dont like that sort of thing lol

Albefueira is a lovely place and I would go back again maybe when the euro is a little better as the supermarkets and shops were horrendously over priced apart from that we all enjoyed every minute x

We stayed at Forte do Vale in August of this year. The Apartments are lovely, very spacious, clean, staff are friendly and helpful. The bar prices amazingly were very reasonable, we visited most nights before heading out to either the strip or old town, both of which are in easy walking distance of the apartments with numerous bars and restaurants catering for all tastes.
Would definitely recommend the Forte do Vale

Stayed for two weeks in October. Apartments are lovely, clean and spacious, outside area a bit disappointing limited space round the pool and no pool bar open. The bar had no nartural light and no outside area so we did not use it has much as we would have liked. Staff were friendly and helpful. Ate in one night but it was disappointing with the bar man running between the bar and restaurant and the food was not great. You must ask for a clothes dryer, iron and ironing board, but be warned the iron will be removed with the explanation that it was needed by other guests,( we purchased one for 20 euros which we left behind). If you just want a good apartment and nice hotel with limited outdoor space and not much to do then this is perfect, if you like us have teenagers and need a bit more going on I would try somewhere a bit more lively. Would return as a couple but not with the boys

Just got back from one week at Fort Do Vale - first of all amazing clean and very spacious apartments, We had a two bed and two bathroom and it was one of the biggest apartments we have ever stayed in! The kitchen is a good size and has washer and dishwasher in as well which was good although we never used them. Pool area was lovley and clean and we could easy get a bed every day from 10am onwards. A good 15/20 min walk to the old town down hill and 10 mins up to the strip ideal location, taxi back from old town 3.5 Euros so didn't break the bank. i cannot fault this hotel one bit, totally spotless and regards to people going on and on about a kettle boil a pan - its easy??? what so hard about that? Also the beds we found them to be no problem and had the best weeks sleep we had in ages so didn't bother us one bit.
With regards to the reviewer about check in - Check in is 4pm and check out is 12.00 (thats why you had to wait to check in)so you can have a lovley lie in and dont have to rush to leave the apartment and the luggage room is very secure. I really cannot fault these one bit. Also weather was great in the 80's plus !!! if you go I am sure you all enjoy as much as we did !
