Albufeira Overview

Hotels in Albufeira & Apartments in Albufeira

Being one of the most popular destinations on the south coast of the Algarve, there are oodles of different hotels in Albufeira, Portugal to choose from. The choice of accommodation in Albufeira is vast and you don’t have to travel far from your hotel for that postcard perfect view.

You could opt for a quirky boutique stay in the historic Old Town, where cobbled roadways wind past remnants of the Moorish age. Or, you could go for one of the chic modern resorts that adorn the clifftops of the coast to the east and west, where pools glimmer and palm-peppered gardens spill down towards a shimmering sea. And that&rsquos;s not even mentioning the bargain wealth of family apartments in Albufeira, or the local homestays in the nearby countryside. If you like to stay near quieter beaches, Praia de Gale can be the right pick for you. Albufeira hotels and self- catering Albufeira apartments are available in all budgets and sizes to cater specific need of traveller.   

All About Albufeira

A beautiful coastline of Southern Portugal, Albufeira is the largest of the resort towns situated in the Algarve. Albufeira&rsquos;s whitewashed townhouses and erstwhile Moorish ports are now the province of holidaymakers. The streets bustle throughout the whole summer with the chatter of folk fresh from the nearby beaches of the Algarve. The cantinas slosh with Alejento wines and sizzle with local sardine catches. Boats bob on the harbours and the Old Town plazas are trodden by partiers flitting between the beer bars. Away from the city and the wonderful coastal stretches of the Central Algarve open up, golf courses beckon from the clifftops, and photogenic praias huddle between the headlands. You’ll find luxury to budget hotels Albufeira that you can call home and make it a base to explore all the popular attractions.

 

Where to stay in Albufeira

From luxury 5-star hotels to budget-friendly self-catering apartments, there are plenty of accommodation in Albufeira to fit in every taste and budget. Albufeira is divided into two main areas: The Old Town and the so-called Strip. Staying in the latter means trading in authentic Moorish homes for new-build Albufeira hotels with larger gardens and big family suites, and being closer to the bargain bars and restaurants. However, looking for hotels in Albufeira Old Town means immersing yourself between the cobbled squares and winding alleys, enjoying the whitewashed casas of the historic Algarve. Elsewhere, it&rsquos;s possible to get simple, stripped-down Albufeira apartments around the new harbour, and more rustic resorts between the palm gardens and rocky promontories of Galé to the west.

Top Things to See and Do in Albufeira

There&rsquos;s no doubt about it: Albufeira magnetises travellers with its proximity to some of the top beaches in the whole Algarve region. Choose between Praia dos Pescadores and its sizzling seafood restaurants in the city itself, or go for the cliff-backed beauty of Praia da Galé along the coast to the west for something a little more untouched. This part of southern Portugal is also famed as a world-class golfing destination, which means championship courses aplenty in the surrounding hills. And there&rsquos;s an interesting Municipal Archaeological Museum chronicling the seafaring past of the town, while the crumbling Berber Castle of Paderne is another must for the history buffs.

Nightlife in Albufeira

Once you&rsquos;ve sought out the perfect bargain stays in any of the comfortable hotels in Albufeira you are all set to enjoy its lively nightlife scene. Striking a welcome balance between family friendly evening activity and hedonistic partying, the town&rsquos;s nocturnal side has something for everyone. If you&rsquos;re staying close to The Strip, it&rsquos;s likely you won&rsquos;t have to venture far from your Albufeira hotels to find shot-slapping expat dives and discos. Meanwhile, the Old Town area has its own fair share of drinking establishments, but these tend to be a little more cerebral – think sunset viewing along Fisherman&rsquos;s Beach and refined Portuguese wine tasting in the tavernas.

What to Eat in Albufeira

Albufeira accommodation offer a gateway to the south coast of Portugal, which is home to some of the top seafood in all of Iberia. This old fishing town certainly doesn’t disappoint, with that row of salt-washed taverns lining up all along Praia dos Pescadores, touting sizzling prawns, codfish and clams in traditional cataplana dishes. Meanwhile, there are places in the Old Town that have the legendary piri piri chicken – another regional staple – rubbing shoulders with international foods: pizza, pasta, risotto, Spanish tapas.

Shopping in Albufeira

The main shopping in Albufeira focuses on the bustling Strip, which runs the whole length of Avenida Sá Carneira as it passes local craft stalls, beach boutiques, colourful stacks of blow-up inflatables, summer wear sellers, and smiling souvenir touts with those ubiquitous trinkets depicting the Algarve. That theme is carried on over in the Old Town, where Avenida da Liberdade has a similar array of shops and pottery workshops, not to mention a couple of local delicatessens which offer up regional exports: wine, olive oil, piri piri sauce (just don&rsquos;t ask for the secret recipe!).

The Price of Things in Albufeira

Because prices have remained relatively steady in this section of the Algarve, it&rsquos;s certainly possible to piece together cheap Albufeira holidays. These days, there are countless low-cost budget airlines offering bargain flight connections into nearby Faro Airport (expect to pay around the EUR 90 mark for a return). Cheap apartments in Albufeira are perfect for the whole family as these can be rented for as little as EUR 40 a night. Meals in local tavernas sit at around just EUR 15 a head including drinks, and a medium beer in a bar along the seafront should set you back about EUR 2-3.

What everyone wants

RONNIE PRESTON, Farnhill

The resort has everything for everybody,quiet spots for the thinkers,and lively spots for the doers. Everyone should take a walk along the 'strip',its an eye opener. The beaches are fantastic. A walk around the 'old town' is a must,to sample the wonderful food on offer at the many restaurants or just chill with a cold drink and watch the world go by.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Fun for all,with a climate to match

Great Holiday Place

Mrs B Brown, Manchester UK

Albufeira is a great place for all age groups! there is nightlife, but also good food to enjoy if you are looking for a nice romantic meal! there is also lots for the children, who will enjoy the train ride through the centre that goes down to the old town of Albufeira. The beaches are the best I have seen, beautiful sandy beaches small fishing villages, where a boat ride can take you all arround to admire the coastline.
