“Amazing Family Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We paid a little extra than we budgeted for because of all the excellent reviews. So glad we did. This is a perfect complex for a family holiday: the whole resort is spotlessly clean and the apartments are spacious and well equipped. There are plenty of pools and bars to wander between to keep everyone happy, relaxed and entertained. Great atmosphere and food selection at the poolside bars, as well as friendly staff (on the one occasion I was kept waiting for my order, it was given to me for free ). When you want a change of scene, take the steps down to the beautiful beach (my kids really enjoyed seeing a few lizards scuttle across our path on the way down!) In the evenings, we opted for the bar in the Alfagar Village where there is a great park for the kids to roam and make friends in. I suppose the resort is a little far out from other villages/attractions but, if you are looking for a relaxing, resort-based family holiday, you can't go wrong with this.

Room Tip: The little extra for the sea view is worth it.

We went last August for 11 nights and have just booked up for August 2014 for 14 nights this time. My son of 8 and daughter of 6 had a blast and we met some wonderful friends. The whole complex is spotless. Rooms are spacious and airy,comfortable and well-equipped. The balconies are huge, making sitting out there for breakfast/lunch/dinner in the beautiful Portuguese sunshine, a real treat. You aren't right in the middle of the restaurants etc but that's what we loved. It's chilled and peaceful. No music blaring 24 7, just respectful, friendly guests and staff. We found lots of lovely restaurants near to the Hotel. The warm walk in the evening was lovely, didn't bother us at all. In a nutshell, you will not be disappointed if you come here, a wonderfully, relaxing, enjoyable holiday.

This was a last minute family break,and chose the Alfagar as it was on the
outscirts of Albufeira. This turned out to be a good choice the apts were
very nice in fact the whole complex was lovely. Yes whilst it was outwith the
peek holiday period ie we went early september the weather was perfect.
Plenty of pool space with a choice of 4 pools plus indoor pool,typical ent
laid on nightly.Good choice of eating within the complex, 10 min walk to a
very pleasant eatery Martins food good and the service was excellent a
further 10 mins took you to a nice Chinese at the rounabout,and further
eating esablishments at the start of the strip.
From the comlex you could walk down to a nice beach [not an easy walk
for the unfit down a steep set steps but worth it in end]
A very nice relaxing holiday in a very nice holiday complex

So clean. Cleaners in everyday towels changed regularly. Crisp white sheets. Microwave, coffee machine, toaster, iron, hairdryer etc. Everything you could possibly need.
Happy hour at bar from 3pm till 6pm. 30% of drinks. The 3 meals for 45 euro was not great in the bar but everyone has their own taste.
Beds were a bit hard for me.
Weather was grill though a bit cool in the shade as it was
S December.

Room Tip: Ask for sun in the afternoon.

As a young couple staying here in the low season we were unsure how our trip was going to pan out. Alfagar II was one of the highlights of our trip to the Algarve and we plan to come back in july and stay here again. The apartments are SO clean it is unbelievable and the staff are wonderful to talk to and extremely helpful (we even had conversations with the maids who were very pleasant). Unfortunately when we went the main pool was closed due to scheduled maintenance but there were other pools in the complex which were open.

The grounds at alfagar are kept impeccably well and the interior of the hotel has a modern feel to it. A special thanks to Victor, the receptionist who did everything he could to ensure our stay was fab. He advised us on places to go inbthe off season, the beat value tours, how to not get cheated by the dodgy taxi drivers and told us literally everything we needed to know.

To sum up, bad points: they charge 50 cents to book a taxi for you and you have to pay 10 euro for a tv remote and a safety deposit box. Good points: the pool, the fact the hotel backs onto the beach, staff, cleanliness, very fairly priced!

Well done Alfagar

This hotel was great. We had a one bedroom corner apartment overlooking the pool. The whole hotel was spotless. The beds were very hard though. We did not eat in hotel. Mini market was handy and had everything you needed and not too expensive. No wi-fi in rooms which was very annoying in this day and age, free at pool side bar.
All the pools were fantastic and great for kids, as were the two great playgrounds, really good for kids.
The main problem with this hotel is the location, it is out of the way, it's a 15/20 min walk to main area and a taxi ride (€6-8) to old town each way. We walked a lot but it was hard work as there are many hills and the paths are not great for walking with a buggy, there is no seafront walk so it's all streets and you need to cross the road a good bit so you probably would need to factor in the cost of extra taxis. Hotel runs a shuttle to old town for €1 per person but only during the day, if this was more frequent, then this hotel would be so much better. Lovely stay but location was a factor.

Spent a week at the Alfagar2 with my boyfriend. Large apartment. Very clean, large balcony all you need for a comfortable stay. 20 min walk into Albuferia which is fine but can be a bit dark on the road up. Highly recommended.
