Booked a cheapie break to Albufeira via Fleetway Travel flying from Southend Airport. We booked by phone with Fleetway and the process was fast and painless.
Fleetway Travel offered the Oura Praia on half board basis which included a free upgrade to a 1 bedroom apartment. Transfers to and from airport to hotel also included.
Flying from Southend is a doddle - especially when you only live about 10 minutes drive away! All went smoothly; just a short wait on the coach at Faro for all passengers on transfer to arrive.
The hotel was very nice. Great Reception service from almost all the staff (just one guy a little grumpy). We were accommodated on the top floor which was served by two very efficient elevators. The apartment was spacious, clean and very well equipped. Double width balcony with access from both living area and bedroom.
Meals at the Oura Praia included buffet for breakfast and evening meal. Both offered plenty of choice. Breakfast included fruit, yoghurt, cereals, eggs, bacon, sausages and more. There was a fish dish on the menu every evening for dinner as well as other options including chicken, pork, pasta or rice dishes - and never a repeat during the 7 days, as far as I can recall. The restaurant staff were friendly and efficient without being over the top. A nice bottle of house red at E 8.90 too!
We could walk to Ablufeira in about 25 minutes but preferred to walk in the opposite direction towards Santa Eulalia beach (10 mins) and Olhos de Agua (45 mins).
Would stay again at the Oura Praia Hotel. Many thanks to all the staff there.
