Timber tipis and clay clad walls

... but what I realise now is that we're not looking to move to a huge region, we're not looking to move to a whole country. We looking to transform one tiny patch of land into a creative, productive and efficient habitation which impacts as lightly as possible on its surroundings. The ingenuity is not in the discovery of a remarkable space, although this would of course be attractive, but in having the knowledge to transform and build upon it. And that could happen ...

Praia da Falesia and Faro

... nighttime activities consisted of comparing Portuguese lagers and watching penalties, you can tell the Dutch have been practicing, they even have a special keeper only for shoot-outs. Hats off to Costa Rica in any case. Today we might quickly check out Faro, but our next stop is now inland. Evora, another unesco heritage place, awaits us in the ...

Lagoa & Albufeira

... are going up slightly. The highlight of today was undeniably the best beach I've seen so far in Portugal, Carvalho beach near Lagoa, between Lagos and Albufeira. Some places in Lagoa look like a Portuguese version of Beverly Hills, but it has really sweet collection of cove beaches. See pictures below. Tomorrow, we may or may not make it to ...

Tourists of the south coast

... The Portuguese use a lot of coriander in their cuisine, very enjoyable. On the way back, it seemed to me the city was getting ready to welcome hordes of British youths ready to take on the night, as dancing bars and apartments in town were slowly filling up with cockney accents. Lovely. Tomorrow, the challenge will be to find a place to view the game with a not too extensive German crowd, as both victory or defeat could prove either dangerous or ...

Lagos, Portugal.

Day 1- Arrive into Lagos on the 13th by bus (4.5 hours). When we arrive at the Rising cock we realise it's 99% Australians, even the people that work there. Staying in an 11 bed dorm, all the other girls are from Sydney. Get ready and go see Marty at his work, the green room. We go to the tavern to watch the World Cup, three ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Auramar Beach Resort Albufeira

    Inedible Food

    from

    Just back from a stay in the Auramar hotel and all in all, the stay was average at best.

    Thanks to JoseManoel

    from

    Thanks to JoseManuel for his help in ensuring that I had no difficulty with my need for a gluten free diet. He made sure that he knew exactly what I could eat from the buffet every evening and made sure that if there was nothing suitable a plateful of meat and fish was served to me at my table. Even when he was off duty he made arrangements for me with the kitchen. Therefore I woulf like to say a big, big thankyou to him and will definitely return to the Auramar. All in all the hotel was excellent and we all enjoyed our stay.

    Looking forward to returning to the Auramar

    from

    I stayed at the Auramar with my daughter, son in law and grand daughter during our half term week. We had a super holiday. The hotel was very clean and had been recently refurbished. Although parts of the hotel were being re-done it did not interfere with our enjoyment. In fact while we were there an outside entertainments area was very quickly built then used within a week! The entertainment provided was enjoyed by us and all the other guests in the bar area. If you did not wish to be entertained there were other facilities available. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. My grandaughter loved the kids club and was particulary looked after by Danny who was a gifted, talented very friendly member of the "Zany" entertainments team. The food was good but perhaps at times could have been better. There was however always a vast choice available.

    Wonderful position overlooking the sea

    from

    Was impressed with the Auramar and it's location, we would consider going again. We went out of season (end of March) so it was fairly quiet. Plenty of food available throughout the day and the rooms, although basic, were exceptionally clean.

    Oh for english sausage

    from

    If the hotel had served english sausages for breakfast, i would give the meals 10/10.The hotel was very clean, rooms basic but nice ( a lovely view out to sea from the balcony).The pool area was very nice but i imagine it will be crowded in the summer months, although another pool was being built while we were there.(march/04).Entertainment left a lot to be desired, unless you like a saxaphonist every night, although the live shows were fine, for the 30 mins they were on.Staff were very nice, but the barmen could do with a course in customer relations.The beach and views were lovely, with a stroll along to Albufeira a must.On the whole, a very nice hotel and great holiday.

    Loved it - will be going again!

    from

    We stayed at the hotel in April of this year. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, choice of food, entertainment and friendliness of the staff. The pools were clean and the hotel in general was spotless. We found several ways down to the beach from a simple stroll, to a more challenging route. The beach was quiet and clean. The local shops in the 'Strip' were fairly repetetive goods wise, but the staff were more than helpful. It was our first time in Portugal and the Auramar has given us a strong desire to return

    from

    This was our first trip to Portugal and it couldn't have been better. T he Algarve region is spectacular, it's people very friendly and our hotel was lovely.The service we received was excellent from all members of staff, the quality and amounts of food were very good, the hotel itself very clean with lots of amenities, entertainment AND a coutesy bus to the old town! Overall, a marvellous holiday, we intend to return!!

    First time in the Algarve

    from

    Very large hotel so to get anywhere had to walk a fair way unless you were in our room on the ground floor and able to take short cuts. For the size of the place, there still wasn't enough sunbeds for everyone unless you got there early. Variety of food was good. Rooms are clean.

    Staff (including the cleaners) are very friendly and helpful. The entertainment started off very well with a group of Brazilian dancers but went downhill throughout the week. Overall, we did have a lovely holiday here and the New Strip (shops,etc.) was only a ten minute walk away so, make your own entertainment!

    Hotel for Mountain Climbers

    from

    Sunday 10th August 2003. Arriving at the hotel the first words my 6 year old said were "what a posh hotel"! It looked lovely with lights wrapped around the tree trunks. The foyer was large and well illuminated. The reception staff were very helpful and spoke excellent english. We were assisted to our room by a member of staff. We were situated in block C which took us about 5 minutes to get to. There are 4 blocks painted in peach and cream. We arrived at about 9pm just in time for dinner. Although the restaurant closed at 9.30 the variety of food to choose from was excellent. Once fed we looked around the hotel.
