Where to stay in Albufeira

Renowned for its extensive beaches and rugged coastal landscape, Albufeira represents one of the nation's most popular destinations and offers a wide array of accommodations, both luxurious and more basic. Reserve a room in one of the city's upscale hotels in order to make use of pools, lounges, gardens, and amenities during your stay. Not only do they offer in-house luxuries, but generally these hotels place you within easy walking distance of the city's famed Praia dos Pescadores beach. While there aren't as many inexpensive options in town, staying at an inland bed and breakfast or a guesthouse in one of the smaller nearby towns can be both a relaxing experience and an affordable one.

  • We visited in the middle of January, so no big crowds. Silence is the best time to enjoy the inner beauty of this place. Absolutely stunning. During summer it is a great spot for snorkeling. Super clean water offers a lot.
  • Fantastic beach. Quiet and very picturesque
  • Absolutely beautiful little beach hidden away off the main drag. Unfortunately the cafe wasn't open when I visited in March
  • A fantastic place to eat and relax
  • Nice pleasent beach
