Review by Susan from United Kingdom
My family & i have just returned after 1wk stay at the alfagar. The weather was superb albeit a bit windy some evenings. The apartment we had (2-bed, 2 bath) was superb-spacious ansd clean. Maid service was excellent. Grounds neat & tidy, sunbeds readily available & most of the time very quiet. Being able to access the beach was a bonus(we went twice) & it was lovely & not too busy. Will definitely recommend this resort & go back again. Also quite close to bars & restaurants which is a bonus-nice walk on a warm evening.

Disappointing & cheap service
We visited alfagar few days ago in early january 2009 for a two week stay. on arrival we were told to surrender our passports for a day as they needed time to enter data, which we promptly refused. we changed our apartments twice as the rooms & beds smelt with stench of dried latrine. Probably the apartment was not cleaned prior to our arrival. the second one was a smaller type but cold and humid. The hotplates in the kitchen did not work, and hence electricity blacked-out couple of times. the apartment complex was cold as ice, due to poor insulation and no heating facilities. There was also no running water several times. the restaurant was closed most of the time, and food served in the bar was exorbitantly priced. moreover, we were charged 15 euros by the owner for half day late checkout on the day of departure. This was not stated by the terms & conditions of our travel package. Calling travel company office also did not solve the problem. alfagar strictly prohibits pets. However on the contrary, the hotel owner posses a pack of hostile dogs moving around in the complex - the owner did not take care of this inspite of our requests to chain the dogs. the nearest bank atm is nearly 3 kms from the complex. internet costs 3.50 euros for 15min of usage. in short please do not visit alfagar and waste your money.
Review by a Visitor from Belgium
Zeer leuke vakantie! de ligging en omgeving is gewoon prachtig, mooie tuinen, fantastisch zicht op cliffs en zee! leuke bar, goedkoop in vergelijking met onze westerse prijzen. Restaurant is ook aan te raden. Mini market die goed uitgerust is. Ook ideaal voor kinderen, er is een zelfs een ondiep zwembadje voor kleine kinderen, naast een speeltuin. Hiernaast zijn er 2 grote zwembaden en 2 tennisterreinen. Oudere kinderen zouden zich hier volgens mij ook wel vermaken, het centrum van albufeira is vlakbij, met heel wat bars/discotheken. ook wel praktisch is dat er dagelijks een kuisploeg je appartement schoonmaakt!
