We gave been staying in the Alfagar 1 and 11 for the last 13 years, usually Easter but a few times in summer months. I can't praise the accommodation and staff enough, great facilities and always nice when staff stay welcome back. A great holiday always and somewhere I have recommended numerous times to family and friends.

Enjoyed first year so much went back the next year.Big mistake . As we knew the complex we made a couple of requests when booking 9 months in advance , didn't get a single one. Asked on arrival if the apartment could be changed to something with usable balcony as the one offered was overgrown completely with a bush and had little or no storage space for a family with kids .Eventually the receptionist made arrangements but we were left to haul the luggage . The new apartment was ok but we heard noises in the kitchen at night first , followed by droppings on the balcony (which is where the cleaners swept everything from the inside) and then we found droppings on the pull out bed .We complained and demanded to move . This process took a whole 12 hours as the receptionist refused to believe us and insisted that the handyman look at it before see would look at moving us . He wasn't in until later in the day and when he eventually reported back to her she hadnt even started to look for accommodation for us .Steaks in Martins Restaurant down the road were 1st class as were the staff

We spending a week in Alfagar Hotel in Portugal . We VERY pleased with the quality of the hotel and the service we recive. The mini bus drivers were helpful, curteous .The quality overall was excellent and everything was clean and spotless. The food is high quality and abundant with fresh linens and fine china. Service is excellent. Front desk service was excellent with good recommendations, useful information and check-in and check-out were flawless. Would I come back and stay here again if I visited Albufeira in portugal Oh yeah! I definitely would.
