Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had the best holiday, having stayed at Clube Albufeira 3 times, this is by far the best apartment. The attention to detail and extras have really made it home from home.

Lovely Villa - home away from home in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second holiday at Clube Albufeira. It is a great complex for families, with 4 pools & a couple of good restaurants onsite. It is a short walk/taxi ride from Albufeira & many parks and attractions. It is a little hilly but villa 281 is centrally located between the 2 best pools which are just a couple of minutes walk away & the small supermarket which is great for essentials and not too pricey. The villa itself is not a typical holiday rental with just the basics. The owners have made a great effort to make it a home away from home. It is very well maintained with lovely bed linen & towels, a coffee machine & a very well equipped kitchen. The cupboards aren't bare on arrival, there is also wine waiting & soap in the bathroom! There is english TV and a good selection of DVD's and books. There were even beach towels, umbrellas & a cool box - little things that make a big difference. Communication with Jenny in the UK, pre-departure was great. Having part owners Monica & Ken, a short journey away in Portugal works really well as any issues are resolved quickly and efficiently. The only negative about the complex is that the taxi system is not great - reception call taxis for a small charge & you receive a ticket. You can wait for up to an hour depending on the time of day/year. It makes a huge difference if you find a taxi company who you can phone and arrange pickup yourself - we used a couple of firms who would either come to the villa or pick up from reception (cards & numbers left in villa), which although slightly more expensive, made life far easier. Would definitely recommend Villa 281 and hope to return soon.

great holiday in clubbe albufeira

  • 5 of 5

WE had a fabulous holiday in Club Albufeira and I would have no hesitation in recommending it for other families. The apartment was lovely, clean and welcoming.It had everything you could wish for, including shopping bags!! The complex had a nice variety of pools, something to please everyone. It was nice and quiet, ideal for families. There were a few swings, basketball court, football pitch and pitch and putt. The shop in the complex was handy for the few essentials. The supermarket in the campsite had more choice obviously, and the taxis to Aldi or Lidl were very reasonable. We went to Zoomarine, Aqualand and on a trip to see caves on a 'glass bottomed' boat from Villamoura. The waterpark and Zoomarine were fab. We ate in Zoomarine, it was very reasonable, with a nice choice of food. We saw the Dolphin show and the pirate show there, and I would recommend both. We thought that the pirate show might be aimed at younger children (our boys are 11 and 13) but it was excellent. I would not recommend the boat trip, it was a waste of money. The guys in charge of the boat were more interested in being 'witty' and entertaining themselves and the 'ship photographer than dealing with the passengers. There was a bar on board and some of the passengers drank quite a few beers before diving into the sea unsupervused. The visit to the caves was extremely disappointing, we were crammed onto a boat, and I'm still waiting to view anything through the 'glass bottom'! One piece of advice I would have would be for people to get their bearings when they arrive at Club Albufeira before heading off in the heat to find their apartment. We got lost, and the layout was a bit confusing. Apart from that it was all good, and we would definitely go back.
