Timber tipis and clay clad walls

We have struck gold again! Like lucky prospectors we have stumbled upon a real gem and can't believe our good fortune. Olaf and Rosetta had posted a last minute request and, of the three in the area, who would take us at short notice, they were the first to respond. They have a 3 hectare property tucked 'invisibly' into the rolling hills and dry scrub just north of Monchique in inland Algarve. The land gently slopes down from a fresh water well and dammed swimming lake ...

Praia da Falesia and Faro

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon

We made it to Faro, our last stop on the southern shore of Algarve. Trying to avoid the concrete nightmare and crowds of Albufeira beaches, we drove slightly to the east to reach a 3km stretch of white sand called Praia da Falesia. Still pretty busy, but as people were spread out it wasn't so bad, and the water was the warmest so far (maybe ...

Lagoa & Albufeira

Quiet day today, as we had to find a place to watch the France - Germany game before 5. In hindsight I'm not so sure why we bothered, the game was largely soporiphic. The only comfort is that the Portuguese seemed to be rooting for us, thanks guys! But anyways the campsite is nice and family oriented, the swimming pool is big, and ...

Tourists of the south coast

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon

So that's where all the tourists went. To the south coast of Algarve. Mind you, I can understand them, the beaches are certainly pretty here in Lagos, and the historic town center does have a lot of character (and restaurants). It's just that the contrast with the empty campgrounds of west Alentejo and Vicentine coast is pretty extreme. The beaches here are already pretty packed, even tough the water is still seriously freezing. It didn't stop us this time ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bayside Salgados Albufeira

    Liked the apartments too far from anywhere

    from

    stayed at bayside aug 2006 for two weeks myself husband and two teenagers first impression ok too far from anywhere courtesy bus to supermarket ran three times per day walk to nearest supermarket 20 mins there and 20 back cost 12 euros to new town and 12 back so you could not do that every night apartments basic no kettle no toaster double ring cooker you plugged in rain through night realy heavily came through light in bedroom ceiling rooms smelt musty like dirty water clean towel change everyother day would not go back too quiet restaurant basic meals but snack bar done lovely toastie and burger

    Bad experience

    from

    Avoid ground floor apartmants as it seems most if not all are damp & smelly. We were a family of three & in the 8 days of our stay in albufeira checked out on the fifth as we could not take it anymore. We tried to complain but the staff really did not want to know. Hence us moving to an alternative hotel. In the 5 days of being there we did not unpack our case because of the stench, we did not want our clothes to smell damp. Even the bed sheets when getting into bed felt damp! Very miserable cold apartment. Which I do not recommend!!

    Hire a car or you will be moneyless, bored and tired from walking!

    from

    I just returned from Bayside Salgados on Tuesday 11th July and I must admit the place itself was a lovely place to stay. The rooms were clean, the staff were lovely, the pool was nice and the roof terrace was a very pleasant place to relax. But that was all we really seemed to do, I'd highly recommend hiring a car during your stay at Bayside, if you decide to stay there.

    Very helpful

    from

    I travelled with 7 other women from Edinburgh to Bayside. We were a bit worried that we were being taken out of the area (no nightlife), but found that the hotel put on a mini bus three times a day driven by Gomez (he was great). Although the last bus was at 4pm it only cost 10 Euros for a taxi. One of our party was taken ill on our last night and had to be taken to hospital. The hotel couldn't have been nicer and offered any help they could. We would defo go back as we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms although pretty basic were clean. What more do you need for a holiday?? We only slept in it and were out all day. Thanks for a great holiday!!!!

    I am sorry to have to do this.

    The apartments themself I couldn't fault apart from currently right next door to a building site(actually outside our balcony), but this is the worst location I have ever had. Okay if you want to stay on site 24/7 or hire a car.

    Totally impractical location. The nearest supermarket is a half hour round trip at which you need directions The shuttle only runs 3 times a day until 4'clock. No later but goes via the supermarket.

    Local restaurants consist of one/two nearly every half hour walk.

    As I said nice enough apartments but really isolated location and definitely not if you are thinking of going into Albufeira for a night out unless you want to pay 15 euros a time.

    What fantastic value for money!

    from

    After reading a few reviews of the hotel I was unsure as to what to expect. The place was a treasure.

    Out of town location

    from

    Stayed for 5 days in late March 2006. The hotel building is old, and partially privately occupied. It acts as the focus for the complex as everything else is a building site at present. Rooms basic, each block has a jacuzzi on the roof which had not been cleaned out yet.Taxi to Alberfuria 15 euros. Villamura 30 euro. You are in the middle of nowwhere except for a golf course. Bakers/cafe on the corner OK. Supermarket is a long walk. Not the best of locations.

    Quiet Yes but very clean

    from

    Arrived late morning no problems booking in staff really helpful as they were all during our stay.Some building work taking place next door but luckily most of the work have been done and there was little noise during the day. Car hire is a very good idea to get around but the nearby bakers/ shop and lighthouse cafe are worth checking out for cheap food and drink and other restaurants aren't far away.

    Check out the local coves really good. Its quiet at night but that's a good contrast from the town. Pick up the free map .

    Dungeon to delightful apartment

    from

    First ground floor studio apartment we were allocated was awful. It was damp, dirty, had cobwebs and resembled a `dungeon'. We complained and initially were told that there were no other apartments available but after we produced a camera to take photos of `dungeon' we were allocated a first floor one bedroomed apartment in a different block which was delightful. It was very clean and spacious, towels changed every day. No kettle provided. Apartments are very isolated and taxi fares to albulfeira mounted up (10 euro each way) but nearside beaches were lovely. No courtesy room provided at apartments. Suitable for couple wanting lots of peace and quiet but definately not for families or young people who will be bored.

    Hated Bayside Salgados

    from

    Last August (2004) myself and my family decided to spend a few

    days (10 days) near Albufeira. We booked an apartment (T1) at Bayside

    Salgados. The experience was terrible:

    --The apartment was dirty;

    --Some of the lightbulbs were broken;

    --Everything in the apartment was in poor

    condition;

    The worse happened at the end of my stay. At

    checkout time I asked for the complaints book that

    they have to provide. They refused. As a result I

    called for the police (GNR). They showed up and

    even after they showed up the manager refused to

    provide the book for registering the complaints. A

    legal action was taken.

    This was one of the worst experiences in Algarve!

    Avoid Bayside Salagados at all cost.
