More about CS Sao Rafael Suite Hotel

As seen on postcards.

by zeuscanthearu about Sao Rafael Beach Resort

The room's were not exactly 4 stars but the sourrounding areas were what I call "as seen on post cards". About 20 mins walk away from the nearest town Albufeira. The breakfast was the same through out my stay and got tired of the eggs and bacon, not implying there was no alternative. Just that, what do you do when you have breakfast already paid for.

Albufeira - addictive and magic

by Diancik

"View of Albufeira"

I fell in love with the beauty, the people, their language, the smell and the taste of great Portugal!

The first trip was a strong incentive for the next one!

"Portugal Azul :)"

Infinite blue ... from sky to ocean, the light of blue gets into your eyes and lights all your senses!

"Sao Rafael beach"

Amazing game of lights and shadows projected by the majesty of the rocks on the surface of sand and water!
Great view, especially during the sunset!

Sao Rafael

by ajw56001

I am staying at the Hotel Maritim in October and am trying unsuccessfully to find a map that shows both Sao Rafael and the old town on one map so I can walk from the hotel to the old town and back (30 minutes??).
Can anyone point me to a link that would show this please.

RE: Sao Rafael

Hi, we stayed near Albufeira in June (you can have a look on my Algarve-pages) When we tried to walk from the new town to the old town we got lost. There is a big distance (even bigger without a map;-)). We asked in some hotel for a taxi and there we also got a map. Easiest thing is to ask in your hotel for the map. I'm sure they will have one.Regards, Michael

I hope this link will work if you copy and paste it and click "Go"
It's the Maporama website. I've put the blue circle target where the Hotel Maritim is situated, and if you scroll across to the right you'll see the Old Town just to the east of the green area (you'll see lots of blue lines which are alleyways and small streets as well as the larger white roads). This map is a bit wrong in that if you go up the road towards the north from your hotel it shows a blue line before you turn right on the road towards the Marina - it's actually all a proper road.

If you want to buy a map as soon as you arrive, go to the Bookshop near Arrivals in the airport. I can recommend the ForWays maps (orange covers) - "Albufeira - City and Resort Map" and "Algarve - Faro, Albufeira e Portimao".

SºRafael is a beach near Albufeira, is a good place to stay and having a car you can go everywhere around, like aquapark zoomarine etc. i've some info on mine albufeira page

Re: Staying in Sao Rafael

The new Albufeira Marina is just a few minutes walk away from S. Rafael. There you will find many restaurants with plenty of events going on especially during the summer. São Rafael is close to many other beaches like Coelha and Galé with very good beach bars and restaurants. I strongly recommend you try local dishes such as "cataplana" (fish stew cooked in a pan with two pan-shaped halves hinged together). The fresh fish and shellfish are also goo options whichever way they are cooked.
Zoomarine has been mentioned already - It is a marine themed , and at the moment they have a show with syncronised russian swimmers and dolphins which is worth while seeing.
