We travelled to Albufeira in spring 2008, two adults and one six year old. The location of this hotel is a bit secluded, (in a suburb) away from the action downtown. A shuttle bus was available daily to and from the downtown core, which was roughly a 15 minute drive. Walking would not be an option, which was a bit disappointing. There is not much around the hotel, besides other hotels and condos. We were glad to have rented a car for week number 2 to say the least. Hotel is clean, rooms are spacious and nightly entertainment provided. There are swimming classes in the indoor pool and the ocean is a two minute walk from the hotel. All in all, would stay there again and recommend it to seniors and families with access to a vehicle.
