“"Does exactly what is says on the tin"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Great family atmosphere, good food, not expensive and easy to keep the kids entertained all day - pool table, cards, board games, krazy golf and, not least, the fantastic pool. Have been before, without the kids, and loved the place. The staff are amazing but even when you are on holiday abroad a few days, or evenings (or both) at Scoobys you can get familiar food ordered in a familiar language!! Best breakfast in the area! We will be back!

“You're missing a treat if you don't visit Scooby's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

The kids love Scooby's Pool Bar and always want to visit. We like to visit too, as we get some peace and quiet while they play crazy golf or connect to Facebook via the free Wi-fi! Scooby and his staff are always very welcoming. We've been visiting Scooby's during our holidays for the past 3 years and it now feels like we're visiting family and friends. Highly recommended!

“Scoobs is the place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Been to Albufeira many times, always stay in a villa in Sao Rafael.

Not until this year did I finally get a map of all the great bars and stumbled across Scooby's.

Great family friendly place, pool is the best in the area, lovely loungers all round the place, great bar, great food, bar staff are so friendly, service is fast.

Ideal for the morning after super breakfasts, or just to chill out for the day by the pool drinking one of scoobys famous pitchers. The menu is good and varied, and so much better than peri peri chicken, when you get tired of the cuisine and fancy some homely food.

lots to do for the kids to keep them entertained. Also a great place to watch the football at night if theres a match on. Met some really awesome people this year at Scoobys.

As for Scoob himself, never met a nicer guy. Picked you up from your Villa and took you to the bar if you needed and took you home at the end of the night. He also took a dog back to our villa which had been following me for the week and followed me to Scoobys.

The atmosphere is always great and the staff / scoob have always got time to sit and have a blether if you pull them into the conversation.

Ive seen a few bad write ups here, but this is certainly not the place I visited. First port of call next year when im back.

Eddie
