Amazing Apartment, Amazing views, Amazing Holiday

My wife and I have just had a wonderful 10 nights (not long enough!) at the Alfagar Village. It was our first visit to the Alfagar and we loved it, indeed WE WILL BE BACK! The weather, was good if a little cool, but it was certainly heating up towards the end of our stay, and we were of course out of season, but still much much better than at home in England! The site itself is covered with wonderful plants and trees with the most beautiful protected cliffs leading down to the beach. We had a one bed apartment and it was superb - big enough, well fitted out & cleaned every other day. There is also a super little bar onsite with free WiFi (and fast too), where you can go and catch up with emails etc for free - if you wish, or just have a beer, or enjoy the free evening entertainment with a nice meal. Not forgetting the "mini-market", which kept a good stock of all the basics, but you'd probably want to do a big shop in town if you were self catering like us. There are a variety of swmming pools to choose from, but at this time of year we went for the indoor heated pool, along with most others. There is a bus stop outside the entrance, taxis are cheap and the drivers have good driving standards. During the day if you get on a bus and go to the main depot ('Centro'), you can get a bus/coach to just about anywhere. The hotel also have a minibus to take you into town for a euro each, around 10am. I think it comes back at 3pm, but we either walked or got a taxi (circa 5/6 Euros) It took us about 35 minutes to walk to/from Alfagar into the main town of Albufiera, and there are plenty of bars / restaurants & shops if you feel the need to break the trip. All in all it was a stunning location & the apartment was second to none, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone (Block 2 Appt 213, but don't tell anyone!). Oh, I didn't mention the tennis courts, or the small football pitch, or the car hire either, so much to do for everyone!

Okay a few things to be aware of here... The resort is about a 10 minute walk uphill to the main restaurants and bars if you are someone who does this. We were fine with it but it's worth knowing if you have mobility issues or just think that's too much aggro. Taxi's are dirt cheap though. The resort is made up of two main types if apartments too, Alfagar 1 is an older set of apartments that are fine, basic but clean and more than what what we needed. Alfagar 2 are the much newer more modern apartments within the main hotel. If you want swanky, Alfagar 2 is what you want. Pools - this place has lots of pools, 3 or 4 outdoor and 1 indoor, The kids loved the pools! There are steps down to the beach below but there are alot of steps, so again people with mobility issues may struggle. There's a bus from outside the hotel that takes you into the centre of Albufeira although we found it easier to just get cabs. There's' also a great tree climbing thing across the road that's not too bad price-wise as we ended up in there for 4 hours. All in all, we loved it, and there was never any doubt that we would be going back again this year.

This place is amazing if you get the sea view you paid for. The score for 5 is for the apartment , facilities , cleanliness and location. We upgraded on booking and paid more for a sea view and was very disappointed when we got a huge tree blocking the sun and sea view or should I say sea glimpse. Even without the tree you need to go out onto the balcony and stretch your neck to see the sea. The main lounge a lovely room but it overlooked a garden and small road not a sea view. If we had known this was the view we wouldn't have paid extra and upgraded and saved ourselves some money. Their were far more apartments with direct south facing sea views. I was only there for 4 nites so put up with it but any longer and I would have gone straight to reception. I even wrote an e-mail asking for a south facing high floor sea view and that was obviously ignored. I feel very let down with what could have been a fabulous place and a fantastic holiday. We have stayed many other hotels in the Canaries and Algarve and always upgraded and paid for a seaview and boy did we get one each time . It is very sad and I have never been so let down by a Hotel like this before. Now the positives, the place is quiet , beautiful and the staff are kind and hardworking. The apartment is first class, large , well equipped and spotlessly clean. The maids work hard. Lots of hot water and fast shower and lovely bath. Kitchen is great. The mini market has everything you need and is cheap. You can walk to the cliff and straight onto a beautiful beach and there are many cliff top walks but be careful a lot of erosion. The WIFI is great and free . The pools are amazing and kept very clean. We play tennis and loved playing here , great courts I would definatley go back but would see my room first before accepting especially if you upgrade and pay more for a sea view.
