Just returned from our first ever holiday arranged through A1 Travel to the Eden Resort in Albufeira Portugal. I had received an email showing plenty of bargain holidays to be had & at first was sure that once I changed departure airport from London to Leeds/Bradford it would be costly. This was not the case & a member of staff I spoke to was very helpful, under £300 each, value for money.
We booked an AI week 1st week in November & were allocated a beautiful clean, spacious & modern 2 bed, 2 bathroom ground floor apartment with pool view.
It was a quiet & relaxing holiday, 15 mins walk from Albufeira Old town but free shuttle bus. Food ok, drinks, staff all ok but resort not really geared up for AI customers.
Pretty resort which we would return to if we were to find another deal :0)
Only problem we had was the transport arrangements from Faro airport which was the worst we have ever encountered, Green Bus from A2B. We were left about 40 mins standing around before names were called out & then when we eventually walked to the bus we had another long wait for another 2 flights to come in. We were then the last to be dropped off, by which time we were fed up :-(
Would not hesitate to use A1 Travel again & have joined the cub to get offers & discounts etc. our first time flying with Monarch Airlines which we were very satisfied with.
