“ Country: Portugal / World Region: Europe „
We recently went on holiday to Portugal, staying in Albafeira at the Paraiso De Albafeira which is situated between The Strip and Old Town Albafeira.
The strip is well known for its night life and ideal for those looking to party until the wee hours.
Old town is more for famillies, its full of quaint streets with little shops and is a lovelly place to wander in the evenings, with its street entertainers and little market stalls all mixed in together and small bars where you can stop and have a drink while listening to some local music.
It also has a fantastic beach, with its calm waters and golden sand, makes it ideal for kids and with the hot weather Portugal has to offer, its great.
The Paraiso itself is about 30mins from the airport by coach, Its a huge hotel and first impressions are excellent.
With its 8 floors there are an adequate number of lifts throughout the hotel, The hotel also has a gift shop, a mini supermarket, a jewellers, a hairdressers, a gym and indoor pool etc. It also boasts a number of restaurants and bars which are fantastic and they have a kids club.
The entertainment was first class and covers a wide range of activities for all ages, outside there is an 18 hole crazy golf course, a tennis court/five aside court, plus the best bit, a huge outdoor pool and wide open spaces around consisting of a pool bar and food area serving all day long, if you go all inclusive then you will need a diet when you get home for sure.
The all round cleanliness was second to none as you even had 2 cleaners working all day long in the toilets by the pool. This was the best holiday weve had !
