Algarve, Portugal: From Fine Dining and Hotels to Beautiful Beaches and Relaxation, Part II

Day two had us heading West towards Carvoeiro a small resort where we visited 4-Star Rocha Brava, a large complex ranging from studio to 3 bedroom apartments. This property has multiple tennis courts and a good range of entertainment, making this a family friendly vacation spot.

Heading 20 minutes West across the coast we reached what is considered the hub of Algarve, namely Albufeira. Upon arriving in Albufeira it’s easy to see recognize its popularity with its mixture of the Old and New Town, little coves and beaches, great nightlife and restaurants and not to mention a large selection of hotels.

Rocha Brava, AlgarveIt’s no surprise that our first visit is to one of the most popular hotels here, the 4-StarParaiso de Albufeira. With the hotel’s extent of facilities, indoor and outdoor pools, spa, gym, kids club, large disco, 3 restaurants and an 18 hole mini golf, you needn’t leave the hotel, however it would be a shame not to take advantage of the hotel’s great proximity between the beaches and Old and New Town area.

Real Bellavista Hotel and Spa, AlgarveIf pampering is your calling, Albufeira has the Spas covered: the 4-Star Vila Gale Cerro Alagoda, 4-Star Real Bellavista Hotel and Spa and 4-Star Tropical Sol Apartments offer some fantastic Spa treatments and boast great central location.

The last day in the Algarve had us visiting Vilamoura, an ever increasingly popular part of the Algarve with the scenic Marina lined with shops and bars, large selection of golf courses (however you do need a handicap certificate to play on most) and the town center where you will find even more nightclubs and you can try your luck in the Casino.

For 5-Star luxury look no further than the Tivoli Victoria that has one of the best golf courses situated on-site and all the amenities and luxury you would expect. Vilamoura also offers many affordable, budget friendly options, e.g. the 3-Star Old Village Apartments, a great option for families and groups alike.

Upon leaving the Algarve it is easy to see why European tourists are flocking to this destination, with a great range of properties catering to all tastes and circumstance, more sun year round than California, that wonderful Mediterranean atmosphere, incredible sandy beaches and a unique blend of the Old and New.
