Pleasantly surprised with all aspects of this holiday it went so well and at little cost
Firstly we had a jet 2 flight from Leeds our local airport the flight is only 2 hrs 30 minutes so very short travel time.
We booked a transfer on line as my husband will not stand one of the shuttles where you wait for lots of flights to come in and then they drop you all over the island. We used a private company nicely named yelloww fishtaxis com , they were only 30 Euro each way , and gave a free bottle of wine , they just met us in the Airport with our name on a yellow plaque , dead easy to find and recommended.
The hotel was very well priced so we expected budget standard , but no it was well located near the most gorgeous beach ever called Falasia , if you like beach walking this is your resort .. There are conveniences close by , supermarket , bars etc although not a huge amount. But enough. The main Town Albufeira is 10 minutes away by taxi we went once but mainly stayed local as it was so nice .
The rooms are large , ok the beds bit hard but do you ever like your hotel bed really?
The balcony we had was big and got the sun .
We found a lovely cake , scone coffee shop up a little dirt track , called Quinta do Mel , you must try it lovely country location.
If you want a relaxing holiday then this could be your resort.
