Another great trip to Portimao at Portugal’s Algarve that I’ve found on! If you want to take a holiday to the sun and stay on a budget then this self catering apartments are the ideal option (supermarket is just 5 minutes away). Fly from Dublin to Faro and your best bet is to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel if you don’t want to travel for another 3 hours. It will only cost you €40, so not too bad if you consider sharing it and it will only take you one hour. You will be accommodated at Jardins do Rocha (83% on Tripadvisor) which were also awarded with a Certificate of Excellence. The 3-star apartments are perfectly equipped for a self-catering stay and you have a nice pool for relaxing on site. However, if you’re not too keen on chlorine water then the beach is only a step away. The sandy bay is perfect for spending long days relaxing in the sun. The centre of Portimao, where the hotel is located is also close by, on the other side of the bay. The town is nice for having a nice night out or strolling around through the little alleys looking for some souvenirs. You’ll also find great restaurants and bars there, so treat yourself to some delicious tapas and maybe a glass of Port?! This Algarve holiday will make the perfect family trip and the best is, you got the perfect deal :)
