My cousin and I booked a long weekend here in July - we have stayed in Albir many times before and usually rent a villa with our whole family. We had a quick and easy check-in, we were taken to our room and were shown around the small complex. The rooms were big and very clean, the apartments are in a quiet area and not far from the beach or restaurants! The first hinderance was that none of the staff spoke English, this was not a problem for us and we are fluent in Spanish but other guests seemed to have problems. On our second night of returning to our room, we were followed by a young gypsy man, now, we were told that after 10pm, the gates automatically locked and only guests with a key could get in also we were told that there was a security guard on night shift... But as we got out of the lift on our floor, this man was standing pointing a knife at us, he managed to get our camera and both mobile phones. We shouted for help. Where was the security guard?? Eventually 4 Spanish men heard us and came out their room to help. The gypsy disappeared but returned a few hours later banging on our windows and doors trying to get in. The next morning we were leaving and went to complain, but reception wasn't open... Overall great apartments, but security needs to be changed!! There are lots of gypsy gangs in the area, and god forbid anything happen to any other tourists. Will certainly not return!!
