Real cheap deal for Portugal’s Algarve: I’m sending you off to Albufeira and Thomas Cook is helping me with that :)

Fly with Thomas Cook from Belfast International Airport to Faro. From there it is cheapest, easiest and fastest to take a taxi and it only costs you €25. The hotel that is included in the deal is called Residencial Vila Recife (75% on Tripadvisor) and located close to the beach (5 minutes walk) and the Old Town, which you should definitely visit (it has those typically Portugese low-built houses). The Strip, where you can, shop, go out at night, eat, dine and drink some wine is nearby, so that you can always walk home at night and don’t need to worry about taxis. You have the option of using the hotel’s pool and sundeck or stroll down to the amazing beach in the morning and spend the day being lazy lying on your deck chair. I know what I would choose… There is plenty to do in the area, go on Jeep trips to explore the area, try out high sea fishing, or go on a normal boat trip out into the Atlantic Ocean. Animal fans could swing themselves on the back of a horse and gallop along the sandy beach. Of course scuba diving is possible to… Pick any activity you like and make it a brilliant stay :)
