Albufeira Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Albufeira

Albufeira accommodation ranges from luxurious romantic boutique hotels to cheap beachside family friendly resorts. No matter what kind of holiday you’re after or the budget, Albufeira has multiple accommodation options for you to choose from.

This former fishing village has grown into an Algarve hotspot, featuring a thriving nightlife, beautiful beaches and relaxing boat trips. With year-round sun ensuring temperatures rarely dip into single digits, Albufeira is an unmissable destination for your next holiday.

Where to stay

Old Town

The atmospheric Old Town is a great base for exploring more of Albufeira’s historic area during your holiday, boasting The Museum of Sacred Art, sitting within the beautifully restored 18th century Chapel of San Sebastian. The Old Town has traditional Portuguese charm in abundance, including cobbled streets, traditional cafes and quaint boutique shops. Plus, it’s just minutes away from both the Praia do Túnel and Pescadores beaches, making it a relaxing location that the whole family will love.

Areias de São João (The Strip)

Party-goers in search of nightclubs, bars and fast food outlet descend upon The Strip all-year round, although its busiest months are undoubtedly between June and August. While it’s a little out of the city centre – a short 10 minute taxi - it’s the most popular place for groups of friends looking to be on the doorstep of all the local parties. Whether you’re looking for all-night clubbing, open-air discos or show bars, The Strip has your evening’s entertainment covered.


Located to the East of Albufeira, the coastal Oura area boasts multiple large resorts and homely accommodation options, and is a quieter place to stay than the nearby Strip. Praia da Oura is a beautiful cove beach that attracts sun worshippers and beach lovers. The surrounding streets even offer a wide range of restaurants and typical tourist shops to pick up mementos of your holiday. If you’re looking to be by the sea, Oura is the area for you.

What to see

Albufeira is bursting with things to do both when the sun is up and when it’s down. By doing so, it manages to successfully appeal to young children, teenagers, parents and older family members.

Just a short distance away from the main areas of Albufeira is the Marina. From here, you can hop on a boat for a relaxing trip around Albufeira’s coast, a fishing excursion or a diving tour. If you’re lucky, you might even spot some dolphins while you’re out at sea. Those who prefer to be on dry land can explore the main beaches of Albufeira, including Praia dos Pescadores and Praia do Túnel. Both areas feature a lively selection of restaurants, where you can tuck into a local fisherman’s catch of the day.


With bars and clubs aplenty, it’s no wonder that people flock to Albufeira for its nightlife. Much of the action is centred around Avenida Sá Carneiro, lovingly known by tourists and locals as The Strip. While it’s 3km away from the centre of Albufeira, it’s just a 5-minute walk away from the beach. The Strip becomes a 1km long party after sunset, with bars and clubs keeping its doors open until the very early hours of the morning.

What to eat

Thanks to its coastal location, much of the food in Albufeira revolves around fresh fish. In some restaurants, you’ll even have the option to select your own fish to eat. We’d recommend tucking into some bacalhau during your trip. It’s a staple food in the Algarve, featuring salt dried cod topped with potato and a creamy sauce. Legend has it that there are at least 365 ways of cooking it.

If you’re after a slice of home on holiday, head to The Strip. Here, you’ll find an abundance of British restaurants serving slap up English breakfasts, as well as traditional Portuguese restaurants, Indian eateries and so much more.


Whether you’re after essential groceries for your holiday, some Portuguese clothing or souvenirs for friends back home, Albufeira Shopping has it all. The shopping centre has over 100 shops to keep you entertained, from international brands to more local stores. Of course, there are plenty of restaurants on hand to fuel your shop, so it’s more than easy to make a whole day out of it if the mood takes you.

On the first and third Tuesday of each month, Albufeira also holds a bustling outdoor market next to the main bus station. It’s at its best during the warmer months, but it’s considered the place to go if you’re looking for a bargain. Seasonal Portuguese delicacies can also be picked up there.

What everyone wants

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

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.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Beaches, fish, weather.

One fo the best places I have been to

Albufeira is a lovely place and the old town is full of cobble streets with little shops, bars and places to eat. There is a square in the middle and the cobble streets just go in every direction from the square and seem to go on for miles. Fantastic place and would definately go back.

The best thing about my stay was ...
