We started the week with a sleep in after a Sunday late night geocaching session. After checking out of our hotel we headed back into Seville for breakfast & some more geocaching.

Glyn made all the travel arrangements for Portugal and when I had trouble with my ticket, which I insisted on booking myself, all I could think was why didn't I let Glyn take care of it. Now I know who can help me with my travel plans in Europe ;)

Historical Traveler Reviews Valmangude Jardim Aparthotel Albufeira
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.

"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
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.
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.
