Stayed in a 2 bed apartment, it was extremely spacious and very clean, we had 2 bathrooms 1 a full bathroom the 2nd a shower room both had hairdryers. In the living area was a large tv that had BBC 1 & 2 and ITV as well as news channels etc. One small word, although a lot of the aprtments have a large balcony ours was only small and got no sun at all, but this was only a minor point, if you do want a larger balcony ask for a ground floor room as they all seemed to have sun loungers. Although some have said outdated I would class the decoration as typical Portuguese and for us seemed to add character. These apartments are a good base, about 5-10 mins to strip, but lots of little back roads take you towards the beach etc.
I would reccommend going to the Modelo supermarket to stock up on shopping as it was a lot cheaper, 5ltr water 36cents.
If you have kids would reccommend Tom and Jerrys, they were really welcoming to my 6yr old and had crayons and colouring available. Would also reccommend Devlins for a fab breakfast at only 3 euros just near paradise bar, again very friendly staff. If your after a really good meal then the Country Cockerel was excellent (you may need to book) it was a bit dearer then a lot of other places but worth it.
Overall we didn't find the cost had gone up that much from 2 years ago, you just have to look for the best spots, but the bars are all competing for business so that means competition. Even in the old town we found a place that was doing a 3 course tourist menu and drink for 10.95 and very large portions.
Would definitely go back to these apartments and love Albufeira.
