Why Des Mc chose Albufeira

We love Club Albufeira, and this apartment is modern, light and airy, and very private, even though it is only 30 metres to the swimming pools and restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

We have internet in the apartment (not at reception - which is slow and costly) from Portugal Telecom. The router has the access keyword on the back.

Great Discreet Spot You You Will not Regret Booking

  • 5 of 5

Congratulations to Des on a great apartment and thanks to Eileen who is on hand locally to make everyone's stay a pleasant one.

You make a great team!

We had a mechanical problem with the washer and thought "probably not going to be fixed during our stay due to the local laid back culture"

We had not taken into consideration Eileen's can do attitude;

Hey presto within 24 hours laundry on the go.

The apartment is spacious and comfortable

It has a well equipped kitchen stocked with all the utensils you will need,

The bedrooms are spacey and are roomy enough ,

The garden is great and private,

This apartment will not disappoint and the Club Albufeira is a great location for a family holiday ,very clean and the on-site catering is good.

The locals are great and there is a Pingo Doce supermarket within a ten minute walk ,Portuguese Value for money.

Local red wine £1-99 a bottle and very drinkable .

If we travel to the Algarve again we will definitely return.

Excellent location , near all the swimming pools.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious, private, airy apartment.

we had a great time here , everything you needed was available.

Slight problem with the washing machine , but the site manager sorted this for us straight away.

Great location but i would say a car is needed unless you want to rely on the site's taxis and mini bus.

Perhaps the apartment could of had some information regarding the local area , always handy when your holidaying for the first time.

Would visit again, Thank you,

Clube Albufeira

  • 5 of 5

This delightful and extremely spacious apartment on clube albufeira was absolutely perfect. Fully equipped clean and charming. A lovely private garden with sunshine all day long. The complex has lovely swimming pools with all amenities. We loved albufeira old town which is very authentic with beautiful restaurants. We will definitely be coming back and would fully recommend this apartment.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our third visit to Clube Albufeira, which in itself tells you something. Apartment is perfectly located so you can get to all 4 pool areas very easily.it is situated in the higher part of the complex so make sure you get a lift with your luggage. Apartment had everything we needed for a great stay, the WiFi came in very handy in avoiding roaming fees. Very clean, well equipped and in a nice quiet location. No hesitations in recommending this apartment. A bit more charcoal for the BBQ wouldn't go a miss 🍜

Well located,equipped,clean,comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Clube Albufeira, but our first to this particular apartment. We found the apartment to be well located with easy access to all 4 swimming pools, apartment was well equipped and clean. We would recommend the restaurant at the lower pool " El Pavilhao" for a reasonably priced meal with good service and excellent food. Also within the Old Town a visit to the "Atrium Restaurant" is highly recommended and a particular favourite of ours where traditional Portuguese food is served, and musical entertainment provided (Tuesday,Wednesday & Saturday). Overall we had a very enjoyable stay, with our party consisting of 2 adults and 2 girls 16,13.

Great apartment on lovely complex

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment in June 2014.

The apartment is a a great size, with space for two couples and two children (1 year olds).

It had everything we could need; well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, washing machine, BBQ and sun loungers to relax while the children had their naps.

Clube Albuferia is a very nice complex of apartments, with great pools with snack bars alongside.

We hired a car while we was in Portugal and found it very useful as Clube Albuferia is a 15 minute walk out of Albufeira old town. We used Zitauto who were excellent.

Overall I'd thoroughly recommend this apartment.

From the Owner

We love Club Albufeira, and this apartment is modern, light and airy, and very private, even though it is only 30 metres to the swimming pools and restaurants.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 35 Miles Nearest Barpub : on site Nearest Golf : Salgados at 4 Miles Nearest Train : Ferreiras at 6 Miles Nearest Motorway : IP1 at 3 Miles Nearest Restaurant : on site three restaurants Nearest Beach : Albufeira at 2 Miles

Near to the famous 'Fisherman’s Wharf' and New Marina, both are worth a visit. There are many Local beaches, and places of interest. Lagos and Portimao are within reasonable travelling distance. Albufeira town square has street entertainers, with puppet shows which the children especially enjoy. Local artist sell at a reasonable price. You might even take home a sketch or cartoon of yourself! Don't forget the local brew - PORT is reasonably priced, and you are hard pushed to find a bad tasting local wine, even at a £1 or 2.Eating out ranges from café style to restaurants, whatever you prefer, and you cannot leave without sampling the local fish, especially local sardines. Cheap to buy along with your beautiful fresh salad for your 'alfresco' dinner on the Patio!!

Other Activities: Local Tennis, 10 Pin Bowling and Cinema The 'Strip', restaurants, shops & night-life are near and many local restaurants with international cuisine.
