Even though the Algarve boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year there is still a possibility of a little rain. Entertainment and media within the apartmentSky satellite TV with Albufeira Family Apartment by AlgarveBliss can be important even if only to keep the children happy until the weather lifts. For the adults it may be a bit of breakfast news, some light entertainment before bed or simply killing some time while waiting for the children to go over.

Within our apartment you will find a 40 inch flat panel TV linked fed from the resorts Cable TV System. Our apartment also has a Media Player loaded with over 200 top films and features so something for everyone.

A tuner amplifier provides local radio like KissFM Algarve which broadcasts an English service during the afternoons. There is also an iPod connecting lead should you simply prefer to listen to your own music collection or podcasts.

Testimonials :-

Elaine, Ike
“..... The entertainment system with the wide range of films on demand was great. Loved the location - just out of the hustle + bustle of town but easy to get to.”

Linda, Brian & Nicola
“The apartment was everything we expected and more. Lovely decor, great extras (entertainment system) & comfy beds. Loved the complex and ideally situated if you don't want to be in the hustle bustle of the old own. The complex is relaxing as is the marina but we also loved the Old Town. We would definitely come again. Thanks”

Bev, Al & Mia
