It might be ragingly popular with sun seekers from around Europe, but the Algarve has managed to build an incredible tourism infrastructure without compromising on class.
The Algarve hotel scene leans heavily towards the luxury end of the market, particularly in upscale, all-inclusive Algarve resorts such as the ones located in Vilamoura. Think infinity pools, Jacuzzi baths and ocean views, all at remarkably affordable prices.
If you’re after cheap and cheerful Algarve hotels in 2021, don’t be deterred. There are some fantastic cheap hotels, with Albufeira a particular hub for budget resorts and all-inclusive deals.
Of all the Algarve resorts, Albufeira is the youngest, liveliest and most party-centric. Many of the big hotels are clustered around the ‘Strip’ – a long avenue lined with bars, clubs and Brit-friendly restaurants. Alternatively, the Fisherman’s Beach area has some of the best cheap hotels in the Algarve, with fabulous family-oriented accommodation, from facility-packed hotels to self-catering apartment blocks.
