Noise level unbelievable.
Just back from Valmangude Apartments, Albufeira. Arrived looking forward to a bit of peace and relaxation - not a hope. Arrived 10 pm at night to be placed in the apartment right next to the bar and entertainment area. The noise was unbelievable, so much so on some occasions that the light fittings were rattling in the room. There was no escape as even the sitting area was level with the bar so you heard everything being ordered and clinking glasses. You arrive looking to de-stress and the opposite happens. Couldn't be moved for 5 days and when that did happen - it was much better. Sound proofing is needed though in this establishment, even people walking barefoot in the next door apartment sounded like they were in your room. In the first apartment there was also cockroaches aplenty! I would pity a family being put in that apartment - it should only be rented out to young partygoers who would no doubt be up "The Strip" until the small hours of the night and wouldn't even have realised there was a problem.
Albufeira itself was nice, good restaurants and the staff of the Valmangude were always helpful.
Would certainly not return to Valmangude.

"Best Girls holiday ever"
I just wana say Albuferia is beautiful and it was the best girs holiday i've been on. The apartments were very big and clean and were situated in a good place, as they were near the strip and the old town. Visit the old town to eat as there's more variety of restaurants such as italians, chinese and steak houses. In our hotel the bar staff Armando, Carlos and Jose are great very friendly and entertaining. Also i wana say that are rep Danny is brilliant, He was kind and very helpful. (Kristy, Sarah and Joanna).
had a wkd time...staff were friendly ... especialy coctail bar staff! would deff go again!
AS LAST YEARS ENTERTAINER
Hi there to everyone reading this im 1 half of last years entertainers and i just wanna say that myself (Lell) and Simon both had a fantasic summer at the valmangude and wanna thank n e 1 that was there, and to n e 1 that is off there this summer we would like to apologise for not being here in 2004..!! but we hope u have a good time... and dont worry bout the cockroaches as i never see many ...!!!! have fun..xx
Noisy, cockroach infested and overrated
When you read the brochure and arrive at the apartments then you will think, looks nice. The rooms are a good size and the pool and snack bar are fine.
We had a room on the ground floor to the right of reception ( you are looking at the hotel from the outside ). The noise from the reception area when the 'entertainment started was unbelievable.....no way could you sleep until it was over and with two kids you just had to sit and endure it. We asked to be moved which couldn't happen for 5 days but when we did we were told it was to a quieter part of the hotel......so they knew they had a noise problem and obviously ignored our booking request for a quiet room.
By the way the cockroaches in our first room were plentiful!!!!
If you do not have kids or if you do and they don't need to go to bed by 9pm and you like the 'here we go' type holiday then book now. If you like a more relaxed, clean and subtle type of holiday then book elsewhere.
Best holiday ever.
This was the best holiday i've ever had i met loads of friends including gaz, kat, matt, chris, tom and christy and loads of others.
It was great the day time activites were good fun (thanks lell and simon btw its shaun here.) I just hope the next holiday is just as good.
i just wanted to say that the holiday i had at this hotel could not be beaten. i went last year and despite it being excellent before, this year it was better. i think this was mainly down to the entertainment duo this year as last years werent as lively. their names were simon and lell (by the way if lell or simon reads this, its gaz) there was always something going on and they hepled everyone enjoy their holiday even more. anyone going there before december will be lucky to have them around the place. they made the holiday what it was! thanks guys!
I went to this hotel a few weeks ago it was very entertaining especially the entertainment crew who ran throughout the day. There was one entertainer in particular who was very helpful her name was Lell, if your reading this its Keith and Jonny the SILEBY BOYZ. This hotel was the best not only for the entertainment crew, lell in particular but it was lively and well set-up so if you get a chance to go then take it with both hands!! Keith n Jonny SILEBY
My friend and our 2 children stayed at this Hotel last year. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. The pools were great. Also the food available at the Pool Bar was varied. The rooms were comfortable, maybe could have been slightly larger. The only downside was that we were next door to Tanya's Bar which wasn't a problem at night because we werent in, in the morning though they were clearing up and moving tables and chairs which was very noisey if you were trying to have a lie in. The hotel was at a great location just far enough away from The Strip so that you weren't kept up with people coming home from the discos and pubs later on.

Portugal is rapidly becoming our favorite place in the world. Why, you ask? Three reasons: interesting and beautiful beaches, pitchers of sangria and flavorful, fresh seafood. Here in Praia de Luz we have found all three within easy access. We're enjoying the variety and changing flavors of Portugal, especially this Algarve region.
This morning we went for a walk on the Praia de Luz beach. Normally the ...
We've had a wonderfully lazy week, spending afternoons at the pool or the beach, and walking around Luz. Luz is basically a holiday village comprised of a dozen or more resorts and some villas all clustered around the Praia de Luz or the beach of Luz. The shopping here consists of everything holiday residents need: grocery stores, beauty shops, restaurants, bars, and a ...
... to clean, change towels, and make beds. That is the height of luxury for me. The bathroom is also really nice with marble floors, a huge tub/shower and both toilet and bidet. Everything is very modern and high end. I'm glad we're here a month.
We spent the last two days on the beach and at the pool. There is a nice sandy beach about 200 yards from the resort and the water is so calm ...
... gave it another day at Lagos, hoping that the wind would vanish again, but ended up deciding that two nights was more than enough and that we'd prefer to move on again. Further east, it's supposed to be much less windy and a lot more pleasant.
I have to confess that we're not altogether enamoured of the Algarve so far, although we haven't seen a lot of it yet. At this rate, however, we'll be hotfooting it straight to the Med as soon as we ...
Not too much to tell from yesterday in lagos, we had a relaxing beach day and got in some surfing and that's about it. We have met some great people here, had some amazing food, some how managed to not get sunburnt and enjoyed just being able to relax for a few days. So this day in Lagos (lagosh as the locals say) was filled with surf, sand and sangria, the three S's of a healthy lifestyle. We rented boards and messed around in some beach waves which was a lot of fun! ...
