We've been coming to Albufeira since 2013 and the Old Town used to be a lot more laid back than the Strip, sadly there is now little to seperate them and the place has an air of desperation about it. Prices have risen sharply too,...More

A lot of points to have some drinks or dinner, which are a bit overpriced though. Generally lovely atmosphere for evening walks and having good time with a family or friends.

Crowded, drunk people,seems like a diferent country... all very 'UK'ish... If someone visits another country, one of the reasons should be to have a taste of the local traditions,food etc... Albufeira is now another UK district. Poor accesses for families with baby cars

Good place to spend a few hours. Lovely atmosphere with bars and restaurants around the whole city and amazing shops to browse. Also cute jewellry and leather stalls in every little street. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

Hi Apologies but I am unsure off-hand. I would contact the tourism center in Albifeira and ask . I know some of the resorts have gyms but not sure if there is a stand alone gym. Kind Regards
