Just back from an 11 night stay in the Almar Apartments. The location of the Almar is superb. About 4 to 5 mins walk from the Escalators into Old Town and if you want to pay a few Euro extra you can have a fabulous sea view from your terrace. The apartments are situated in a quiet area so no traffic to spoil your sleep. Beds are firm but not back breakingly hard as some reviewers were saying. Apartments are huge and are cleaned on a daily basis with towels and sheets changed twice a week. Fridge, cooker/microwave toaster etc. Safe available at a charge but no Air Conditioning. Good wifi in lobby, and never came across more helpful staff. Nice freshwater pool and Fernando tries to clean up as best he can after the seagulls every day. Very convenient for shopping as lidl and aldi are about 10 mins walk away, follow the road signs for Portimao and the Continente (a big shopping chain in Portugal) is 5 mins walk away, across from Mc Donalds and KFC. A lot cheaper than the smaller shops. Downside is that the place is dated and really could do with a bit of cosmetic work, (painting, replacing cracked or missing tiles etc) Wouldn't take too much and should be reinvested. Definitely would recommend to stay due to the location as Albuferia is quiet hilly and a lot of people were complaining of needing taxis home every night due to the hills. If I am going again I will stay there. If you want somewhere cheap with beautiful food to eat go to A Fragata across the road. Try the steak or Tuna Steak, or the tourist menu for €11. Fab and won't be beaten for value
