Overviewing the never-ending ocean and setting on a range of cliffs of rare beauty, the Alfagar Resort is welcoming for locals and travelers alike. The privileged location in a property close to Albufeira, in the southern region of Algarve, Portugal, makes it the perfect destination for a well-spent holiday.
The resort within this 11-hectare private property set close to the Santa Eulalia Beach are divided into five apartments and were built and decorated with such traits that remind us of the ancient Moorish style very typical of the Algarve region.
The complex is quiet and peaceful, and although located in the outskirts of Albufeira, the short 5-km drive to the city centre will not let you down, as well as the 5-minute drive to Areias de Sao Joao and Montechoro. The Santa Eulalia Beach is also a great option for those who love to spend their days at the beach.
The apartments have a number of different typologies to fit everyone’s budget and taste, each of them boasting a stunning view over the sea, the colourful gardens or the pool. A living room, a fully equipped kitchenette, a fully equipped bathroom, a bedroom, a veranda or terrace are part of every room, depending on the typology, which will certainly guarantee amazing vacation days at the Alfagar Resort.
This hotel in Albufeira also offers satellite TV, closet, stove, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, kettle, and cooking utensils, as well as telephone and safe deposit box. The cleaning is done three days a week, the towels are changed twice every week and linens are changed once every week. The owners of Alfagar Resort are certainly making sure all visitors have the most wonderful time here and are well taken care of.
Outside, the nice Algarve weather—which is actually one of the very good reasons tourists abroad choose Portugal to book their holiday—calls for a dip in the pool and relaxation time on the sunbeds and parasols available in the large pool area. However, if you are more into warm water, the indoor pool is heated and easily accessible from the outdoor pool area.
If you are thinking of bringing your children into Alfagar Resort, you will find they offer a few activities to keep them busy while having fun, such as water slides, two playgrounds, and a 3G football pitch, which is close to the poolside, allowing for parents to keep an eye on them while enjoying the sun and the view.
Breakfast consists of a lovely English breakfast with cereal, fruit, yoghurt, fresh bread, toast, and cold meats, all of it fresh and regularly restocked. The restaurant, however, is only open during summer, but it would not be hard for you to find a nice, family-friendly restaurant near the resort if you are thinking of visiting during off-season.
If you prefer to cook inside your apartment, there is a market inside the resort carrying everything you need for a nice meal: bread, milk, vegetables, fresh fruit, and many other products, as well as magazines, newspapers, handicraft, and beach accessories.
The pleasant and welcoming staff will certainly show you the many options inside the resort and in the case you feel like exploring Albufeira and its surroundings. They provide a shuttle from Alfagar to Albufeira between 10 AM and 2:30 PM, and back at 5 PM (don’t forget to confirm the schedule at the reception desk). You can also hire a car in the office provided inside the village.
