Pleasant seaside town with lots of varied shops including designer clothes, tattoo studio and tourist shops. Many bars and restaurants. Recommend the Oasis bar with Dot and Dave for a warm Scottish welcome and a taste of English (Scottish) cooking. Tutti Quanti restaurants offers a wide variety of tasty food and has a play area for younger children. Lovely evening walks on promenade with varied stalls open and kids rides and market to enjoy. 10 minutes drive from Benidorm for a sandy beach or a livelier night out.

The gardens are well kept. Only complaint is the self catering guests are forced to wear a red/orange paper wristband and after 4 days all of our parties wristbands turned rather grotty looking and started to come off. We didn't bother getting a replacement as we thought what was the point, we aren't all inclusive so not getting drinks or food. I got approached by a lifeguard with a rather bad attitude who told me to go to reception immediately for a replacement wristband. If they want you to wear it all the time they should give you the plastic ones that they give the all inclusive guests. Water and paper are not a good match so obviously it is going to come off.<br /> <br /> The entertainment was pretty dismal. Apart from the kids mini disco, which was the same every night hosted by the same annoying person. There was very little else apart from a parrot and snake show a couple of times a week.

The hotel was in a convenient position within easy walking distance of shops and eating places. Only five minutes walk to the sea. The place was not too busy and unlike nearby Benidorm no drunken stag or hen parties and no strip joints. A nice atmosphere, only downside is the beach is pebbly but there are sunbeds available to hire.

Albir is a quieter resort than Benidorm and a bit more 'up market' which suits us older folk. There are plenty of bars and restaurants and the prices are very competitive. There is a bus which runs between Benidorm/Albir/Altea and this is a very good service - about every twenty minutes or so both ways and the fare seems to be €1.50 where ever you want to go.

Some of us had been to Albir last year and loved the laid back atmosphere and the many very cheap restaurants. We came in August last time and the little market was on at the beach, but being October we didn't see it this time. The beach is not very baby friendly, but we went into Benidorm and spent a day on their lovely beach. We would definitely come back to Albir, but maybe not to these apartments. All the travelling arrangements were excellent and we will certainly use Sunshine.co.uk again.

Albir itself was very quiet and a taxi costs 13 euro to Benidorm or get the bus around the corner and it's only 1.50 euro. Not much to do here but nice restaurants and loads of supermarkets. Lidl is next door to the hotel (Albir Playa), can't go wrong with 89 cents a bottle of wine.

A really great town, loved walking about without jostling with crowds. There is a great variety of eateries, good shopping and pleasant attentive service everywhere, no price shocks plenty of easy on the pocket shops and cafes. Stunning views around the bay from the promenade. The beach too is lovely but possibly not entirely toddler friendly because it is not sandy. Marvellous location for that all important tan with the sea breeze and plenty of sun beds for hire. Take a ride along the coast to Altea and Calpe plenty of interest there!

Lots of restaurants and little bars which were nice. Sunday market was great. Used the tram which was round the corner to visit another resort which was very efficient. Nice holiday shops around. Some lovely walks including a walk to the lighthouse. Stoney beach with huge waves and many lifeguards. Clean beach with toilets. Some live local music on the beach front too. Fab art gallery by the beach which was free and interesting. Not expensive around.

The beach

Albir has a 600-metre stretch of pebbly beach, backed by the main promenade lined with bars and restaurants. The Paseo de las Estrellas (star promenade) has Hollywood style plaques dedicated to national film stars, due to the International Film Festival which takes place annually in the adjacent town of Alfas during the first week of July.

During the summer months the beach has three lifeguards on duty and a first aid post, public toilets can be found in the centre of the promenade. There's a watersports centre here which offers sailing, snorkelling, diving trips and more.

Things to do

For fun days out, Benidorm is the place to head, home to the Terra Mitica theme park and neighbouring TerraNatura zoo and aquapark, the Mundomar Sea Life and Animal Park and next to this is Aqualandia Benidorm aquapark.

The Terra Mitica theme park has adrenaline rides and kids rides, set amid ancient Mediterranean themes, with daily shows, ranging from Roman circus acts to Egyptian and Greek dancers, there's also plenty of cafes and fast food outlets to keep you going for the whole day.

The TerraNatura Aquapark features a wave pool, hydrotherapy pool, kids pool, chutes for all ages, grassed picnic areas and a sun deck with jacuzzis. TerraNatura Zoo boasts over 1500 animals living in beautifully landscaped natural habitats including many endangered species.

The Mundomar Sea Life and Animal Park is a landscaped tropical delight with plenty of animals and colourful birds. Spend the whole day here and you can watch a host of entertaining shows with dolphins and sea lions, parrots and exotic birds. Families can take a break at the children's play area and when you're hungry, there is an a'la Carte restaurant as well as a cafe, snack bar and a number of kiosks to choose from.

Aqualandia Benidorm aquapark has plenty of eateries and everything you need for a fun filled day from kamikaze chutes and exhilarating rapids to the relaxing jacuzzi pool and kid's adventureland.

Out and about

Albir has a number of restaurants to choose from, and there are plenty of souvenir shops as well as a craft market which takes place in the summer evenings along the Stars promenade.

For a larger choice of bars, pubs, nightlife, restaurants and shops Benidorm is the place, and if you want to avoid the ordeal of finding a parking space in Benidorm there is a regular bus service which runs every 15 minutes during the day and takes around 20 minutes, bus stops are denoted by the letter 'P'.

Nearby Attractions

Just outside Albir on the road into Benidorm is the Castillo del Conde de Alfaz, it's a great night out for the whole family to enjoy, the entry fee includes a medieval supper, while be entertained by medieval knights showing off their skills of horsemanship and jousting. When the show is finished the disco starts, continuing till late.

For a real flavour of Spain, head on up the road to the picturesque town of Altea (3km), browse the art galleries and stop for lunch in an authentic Spanish restaurant.

Around a one hour drive inland from Albir (25km) is the village of Guadalest, a strategic military stronghold with fortifications dating back to 715AD. It's a popular tourist attraction and its cobbled streets are filled with shops, crafts and restaurants.
