“Albufeira Jardim Apartments- Jet2 - Newcastle- Faro ”

Written on: 09/10/2011 by Alitone (9 reviews written)

We booked last minute with Jet2 Holidays for my wifes 60th as a surprise one week in the sun. Booked on-line Price and location we secured a great deal and chose flight seats and requested Rooms with view. We do lots of holidays and cruises and have to say from start to finish Jet2 far exceeded our expectations . The flights were comfortable i.e "no frills Jet2" with slim line seats so you get lots more leg room. ( Better than Thomson flights for instance) No anoying TVs, hard sell in flight or music but a great cabin service both ways. On arrival a coach was waiting to take us to Abuferia Jardim and drop off people on the way. No Reps on the bus giving us loads of the same stuff. The Hotel check in was smooth and as requested we were allocated a top floor room overlooking the pools with stunning views of the "Old Town and the beach" in the distance ... lovely. The Self catering Jardim was built in the 1970`s so it has lots of space between the blocks of apartments and it maintains its character. Our Studio Apartmt had all the utensils, 3 ring cooker, micro wave , fridge etc etc and all you need for Self catering. Just 300 yards away is a small low cost supermarket Fritas Albuferia) selling all you need and open from 6am to 11pm each day. Nice pools x 3 one for kids and ideal for all groups, couples, all ages . Its a climb up a gentle hill on the way back from town but nothing too steep and it takes just 7 mins to walk to Town or beach. The rooms were basic but comfortable beds a bit hard but very clean sheets towels changed by rooms maids. Not luxury but fully acceptable for what we paid. Restuarant on site and bar with "happy hour" from 7-9 "two for one" drinks. Gardens were well kept and 24 hour security guards. We were well impressed with this complex . Due to location quite few steep steps but fine if you are reasonable fit. Staff were very friendly and it proved a great value stay. The view from our apartment was lovely overlooking the bay and town and at night with patio doors open we could hear the waves crashing on the beach, crickets and birds singing in the trees.. aaahh relax . Lovely location for Albuferia Old Town where you will find 100s of bars food outlets entertainers out door singers , street entertainent .. every night was buzzing. Weather was perfect all week only a sheet on the bed and what an amazing climate. You could live in tee shirts shorts and flip flops all week all day and all night ... in October 27 to 30 every day. Albuferia Old Town was a magic place for us and we will be back to Portugal ... With Jet2
