Vila Branca hotel/apartments is situated in a quieter part of Albufiera but within walking distance of the main town,and beaches. A bit of a challenge for those with walking difficulties as it is either up or down, to get anywhere. The accommodation is traditional Portuguese style,very clean and comfortable,with good heating and air con if needed. Breakfast is a buffet...

I booked this hotel for some friends who had turned 50. There were 8 of us in total, and booked it for a 4 night stay. The hotel was located on a narrow one way Street, approximately 10 minutes away from the old town square on foot; where the atmosphere was absolutely bouncing on a night time!! The hotel was...

Good value for money. The host's are very friendly people. Nothing to much trouble. Ideal location. Less than 10 minutes walk to main square so away from the noise. There is a few steps to contend with but keeps you fit walking back up. If you want 5 star pay 5 star money. Will definitely visit again.

You don't want to stay in this place, really like a retreat house,like a nightmare ... like the Future Holiday from Uncle Scrooge, you don't want spend much,but it's all just a nightmare, doesn't smell good, just old people and everything looks from charity shop. Never again.

I am a seasoned travelled and had experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of all kind of hotels and residence. But my experience at staying Vila Branca & its sister Vila Amelia in Albufeira are by far the best. If i am to rate them out of 10 as the best, I will give them 20. Location is...

Friendly and helpful staff, very clean with regular room cleaning not too early in the morning. I had room 33 on the top floor. It had a decent size balcony that was a real sun trap with a view of fishermans beach which was handy to see how busy it was before walking the less than 5 min walk to...
