We only visited in the evening on our way to a restaurant while driving by. It's very close to the central bit with lots of restaurants, so it isn't a particularly private and quaint beach, but seemed perfectly fine regardless

Hi Hotel Sol E Mar is right on the beach and the Rocomar overlooks the beach but there is a lift just opposite hotel that takes you down to the beach. Albufeira is hilly and the old town has cobbled streets. Hope this helps.
