Clube Praia da Oura, Albufeira Portugal
★ ★ ★ ★
A rambling and gigantic family orientated complex which receives a wide range of international guests who are seeking a lively and relatively upmarket base with attractive buildings and a wide range of catering options.
Many of the perimeters of the property are open-sided but security appears to be vigilant and effective.
Although the accommodation areas are well landscaped and pleasing to the eye, the grounds and pool area are busy and cluttered. Guests may use the often calmer facilities of the sister property, the Oura Praia.
A sprawling but attractively arranged complex with inbuilt flower boxes and plenty of cheerful colours. Staged balconies make sure that many units enjoy plenty of sunshine and there is a shop and supermarket on site.
Property type: Apartments
Storeys: 4 to 6
Built Year: 1970s
The interior facilities are smaller than anticipated for the number of guests accommodated but many guests take the self-catering option.
A central bar has an entertainment area and 2 other bars and a piano bar are on hand. A poolside brasserie-style restaurant attracts many non-residents. Those choosing the all-inclusive option use the main restaurant.
The grounds are well maintained and are monopolised by the 2 sizeable swimming pools around which there are rather cluttered surrounds accommodating a collection of sun-loungers and parasols.
Many guests prefer to remain on their balcony or terrace whilst others relax on the lawns. A children’s club is also available, with multi lingual staff and there are many organised activities as well as a bowling green.
Area Type: On the main coast road in the Oura area, and stretching alongside a narrow lane which runs from the coast road down towards the beach. A smaller sister property, the Oura Praia is located 200m away on the main road. In a pleasant but rather busy area with a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants within 300m of the entrance. Bus stop outside.
Nearest beach: 150m (Oura)
