    “Albufeira is a beautiful manageable, clean city. The Portuguese are very friendly and helpful people, as many can cut off a slice of. Food is a lot offered. From the simple fast food chain to the Michelin restaurant, there is something for every budget and taste. Highly recommended to have a car on site, so the beautiful area can be explored. We were there for two weeks. I think that you should treat yourself as well. Think a week is too short.”

    “Olhos de Água is a suburb of Albufeira, you will find everything you need on holiday. Shops, restaurants, bars, ATM, etc. The beach and the area are very nice. The town of Albufeira is about. 5km away and offers extensive shopping, bars, restaurants, pubs, etc. and many beautiful Srandabschnitte and bays. From the slightly higher located old town with pretty streets you have a nice view. The suburb of the marina (harbor) is partly built with beautiful art deco houses, which reminds a little of Miami.”

    “The Albufeira where we spent our holidays: "The Strip", or the new part, is especially nice for people who love very tourist bars, eateries and shops. The same applies to the old center of Albufeira, only the streets seem to be slightly more authentic. If you want everything in one straight street, The Strip is the one of you. If you want streets and alleys then the old Albufeira is the place to be.”
