The Auramar Beach Resort offers 3-star accommodation in the beautiful setting of the Praia dos Aveiros, just a short journey down to the beach. There’s 2 outdoor pools for adults and 2 for kids, including 1 indoor heated pool, so no shortage of splashing available here. There’s also some great sporting facilities, including tennis courts. The Auramar offers comfortable, clean accommodation located about 5km from the center of Albufeira.
On all-inclusive, half-board, or if you just feel like grabbing a drink at the bar, the poolside snack bar starts serving drinks and snacks at 11am. A great way to start your holiday along the Algarve is to take a brisk dip in the pool, indoor or outdoor, whichever takes your fancy, have some breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant, then head out on the quick walk up to Albufeira town center to get your bearings (it takes about 40 minutes to walk and 20 minutes to the Oura Strip, but the hotel also offers a shuttle bus!) Head back to the beach where you can spend the rest of the day lounging and reading, or planning the rest of your holiday. When you’re back at the hotel relax in the sauna, or the hot tub, or the Turkish bath. Round off the evening enjoying some of the hotel’s great evening entertainment.
Praia dos Aveiros is a lush setting with lots of green spaces: the beach is wide, sandy and clean, with lots of water-based activities available. Albufeira town center, and the stunningly beautiful old town, is a short walk away along a main road with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. A shorter journey away is the other lovely beach, Praia da Oura, and even further on, the Praia de Santa Eulalia (still under a mile away) so there’s plenty of choice on the beach front – it is the Algarve after all. For a day out with the kids, the Luso Aventura Albufeira is one of those recently popular woodland adventure parks, with climbing and zip lines, only in the lovely warmth of Southern Portugal, rather than cold and wet at home.
