Club Albufeira Owners` Apartments

Many owners do not live in Portugal themselves. They have purchased their apartments not only as a holiday home but also as an investment, offering their apartments for rental for the majority of the year.

To ensure the smooth running of the rentals to holiday-makers, the owners pay for an on-site manager and an annual fee to the Club Albufeira for the upkeep of the pools, gardens and any repairs necessary to the apartments. Additionally the owners are required to pay for the utilities: -electric, water, waste disposal and cleaning of the apartments. The weekly rental prices quoted to holiday guests are fully inclusive of all such costs and is solely for the hire of the apartment itself.

When 6 guests share the cost of an apartment this represents a considerable saving when compared to paying hotel prices for each person. As the apartments are self-catering, further savings can be made! Drinks can be refrigerated at less cost than the traditional mini-bar of a hotel and during a week's holiday, dining in, rather than going to restaurants for every meal translates into a huge savings on food alone. The apartments themselves offer far more space than a hotel room or a cramped cabin on a cruise and wake-up times are independent of hotel routines.

Club Albufeira Owner Apartments are few in comparison to all of the apartments on the entire complex of the Club Albufeira.

Being so few in number and of such a high standard, these holiday apartments are always in great demand throughout the year. The demand is of course much more during the school holiday periods, so much so that the demand exceeds availability. It is therefore a wise move to reserve early to obtain an owners` apartment.

Typically by the end of April of each year most of these much sought after apartments are already fully booked for the peak season months of July and August. So the holiday-makers who leave booking their summer holiday until almost the last minute will in consequence suffer frustration and disappointment. Most owners will reserve their apartment for your requested holiday dates with just a twenty percent deposit, the balance is then due 8 weeks before the start of the holiday. This then clearly is the way to beat the rush, avoid the frustration and ultimate disappointment.
