The Algarve Shopping and Entertainment Complex can be found on the N125 just outside of Albufeira, and is a modern shopping centre with an excellent range of well known shops, a multiplex cinema and an amazing range of cafes and restaurants on the top floor.

Some tips that we would like to pass on to you are that if you fancy a coffee or something to eat, head upstairs where there is also a large sun terrace for you to sit on.

If you have kids and they are older than 2 then there is a creche on the first floor, just behind the main selection of Restaurants. The creche is exceptionally well fitted out and the charges are only around €5.00 per hour.

Staying on the Kids theme the Algarve Shopping in Guia also has a selection of pushchairs, pedal cars and various other toys available for free hire. There is no need to take your own pushchairs.

All the restaurants have baby chairs and for the best parking head downstairs where your car will stay cool in the hot summer sun.

The shops at Algarve Shopping include, Zara, Massimo Dutti, Paul and Bear and Benetton.

The whole centre is open from 09:00 to midnight with the shops open between 10:00am and 10:00pm.
