... we were taken out, thinking we were going to the vegetable market at Lagoa, then back. But we went on to Portimao, then to the shrine of Señora da Rocha and then back around 4.30. So a longer trip out.. But very pleasant. This evening Bill and I went to the fish restaurant on the beach and had Sea Bass - delicious but a little pricey. But isn't that what holidays are ...

Portugal Part One: Lagos

A travel blog entry by melissaclark


... and woke up Saturday morning, grabbed a cup of coffee and enjoyed a pancake breakfast provided by the hostel! After catching up with our families, we decided to go on a bit of an adventure! We left our hostel, and walked towards the Old Town of Lagos. We eventually hit the waterfront and then trekked along the coast through three of the beaches. I cannot begin to explain to you the beauty of the beaches here. The rocks and arches, surrounded ...

... and had cereal and toast. We decided to hike all along the coast with all the beaches along them. We did three of the five beaches on the second day which were the most amazing beaches I've ever seen. They had crazy cliffs surrounding white sand and blue blue ocean. It was breathtaking. You had to climb across cliffs and up broken steps and it was amazing. It felt like i was looking at the front of every amazing postcard. That evening we had supper and all had some drinks ...

Part 8, Final Days in the Algarve

A travel blog entry by steve13


As our final days in Paradise count down, we will endeavour to make each one count. It is Thursday morning early, roosters are crowing, the TV still silent (I can'y yet bear to hear German Olympic hi-lites). I heard that last night the Mens hockey barely beat Latvia, and the USA handily beat the Czechs. Tonight we are going to the bar to watch the Womens final: Canada vs USA. Anyway, as I wait for the bakery to open their doors, we will soon have a continental brekkie ...

Part 7. Biking in the Algarve

A travel blog entry by steve13


What a great day yesterday! 5 of us met in the lobby at 9:00, then to the bus stop East, to the town of Vilamaura. This lovely village seems totally designed for biking. Extremely flat, every street has clearly defined bike lanes, as well as bike lanes everywhere. We picked up are reserved bikes at the harbour, for 13 euros, for the day. We pedalled East along the promenade, through to the next town, Quinteiros, for miles. So picturesque. After a while we ran out of road. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Janelas do Mar Apartments Albufeira

    Spacious and clean, overall great holiday


    We booked a last minute, allocation on arrival deal and were more than happy with this hotel. We paid very little for the self catering deal, and feel we got a great hotel for the money.

    3am Karaoke


    Not a great place to stay unless you like to sit in a grotty little bar with undemanding middle aged parents and kids in pushchairs listening to the teenagers sing old tunes on the Karaoke until 3am. It's 30 minutes walk from the old town of Albufeira, the only real destination away from the appartments because the nearer 'Strip' is so awful, populated almost exclusively by expatriate north Europeans offering Dutch, English or German beers, food and tv to the exclusion of anything local or indigenous. The whole town is a building site and there's nothing apparently there that could have existed more than 10 or 15 years ago.

    Heartbreak hill


    we stayed at this hotel in july 2005,and although it's not perfect we enjoyed our stay there.You are about 10 mins walk away from a supermarket {the one at the hotel is really dear and very unfriendly}the "strip" is a short walk away with plenty of resteraunts and bars try the blues 2 cafe food and service is excellant ,the apartments can be noisy but thats more down to bad guests than anything else the entertainment is really bad but as I say you are near the strip.The old town is about 4 euros in a taxi but you can buy bus passes either daily or weekly ,I think daily it was 2.50 or 12 weekly, do take a t-towel as these are really bad and DO NOT BUY TICKETS FOR EXCURSIONS BEFORE YOU GO we did and had a terrible time trying to find our own way there,buy them on the strip or in the old town travel agencies there sell both transport and tickets together you can buy just buy tickets but trying to find public transport is hard-if you intend driving this isn't a problem.Most of the staff are very pleasent and helpful ,the locals can sound a bit intimidating but they are great,there is everything you could want here,it's just a matter of finding it.Don't expect a 5 star hotel it's not. Most of all enjoy youself if you want to pick fault you will.

    Sleepless nights.


    Unless you are a heavy sleeper, Janelas Do Mar is not the right place for you to spend your holiday.

    Very pleasantly surprised


    My friend and I (both single and in our mid fifties, but young at heart! ) have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Janelas Do Mar apartments, having read some reviews prior to our trip I was unsure what to expect but I need not have worried.

    Lots of problems


    we went on a family holiday 6 adults 1 child,the apartments are spacious but there was a lot of problems we were in block 2 on 1st floor right above the noisy bar,there is a tv in the room but you need a remote 60 euros plus 15 deposit.most of the plug sockets were hanging off dangerous when you have a young child did report it but they just slotted them back in some gave off shocks there is a few activtes to do but you have to pay eg table tennis 4 euros for half a hour plus deposit .the gym 8 euros the list goes on all hidden costs also they had no laundry but they would wash your clothes for 1 pair of trousers 4 euros.there is not a lot to do at the hotel you have to go to main strip which is about 20 min walk or taxi 5 euros ,the bar does not open untill 5 pm ,the on site supermarket is really expensive with limited choice.i would not recomend this to any one.

    Great Family Apartments


    Took a cheap last minute week away for 3 adults 1 child.

    Nice apartments, shame about the wind.


    Arrived in June 2004 for Euro Championships. I found the apartments to be quite big, clean and tidy. However the oven used for cooking food seemed to take forever and its quite windy because of where the hotel is situated. It isn't far from the strip in Albufeira however, just a short walk, so thats ok. Theres also a local pub just down the road which sells beer for 1.50 Euros, cheaper and better pints than the hotel, which sells them at 2.50 Euros. The staff are nice, friendly and helpful and speak good English. The hotel also has good facilities such as the pool, jaccuzi, sauna and gym to keep you occupied through the day. If I was to consider coming back to Albufeira, id be tempted to choose these apartments. Overall the apartments are pretty good.

    Very good, clean & spacious.


    I stayed at these apartments summer 2003 and found them to be very clean spacious and generally well maintained, the staff where very pleasant and helpfull. The service in the bar and restaurant was also very good. I would definately return.

    Very clean and spacious


    Staff very nice, apartments very big, clean, food very nice and not too far from town. There is a bus that brings you to the beach from outside the apartments every 30mins very handy!!!. it was my first year to take my 4 year old daughter away for a holiday, the apartments and pool etc are very family orientated. I liked the Janelas Do Mar Apartments and will be returning again this year.
