[QUOTE=Andrew]I was going to mention this, Libby beat me to it.. “There were groups (of mostly middle aged men)”.../QUOTE]

Who should know better and should be ashamed of themselves. If it was their wives and children and drunks were performing in front of them. They would no doubt be the first muttering to the wife.

I think you’ve misunderstood me. The groups of guys I’m referring to were impeccably behaved, I certainly didn’t say or infer “drunks”.

I did yes...That would make for a pleasant change.

This is getting good! 
UTB eh? Have the cojones to spell out plainly what you are saying. Text speak on a forum is for the teens.

The person is from Teesside and if they are into football they will know what UTB means......Of course going by your username football will not be strong topic for you.

Personally I woudn't stay in Albufeira Old town area - it's too crowded and busy for me. The Strip I would avoid - not my scene at all. 
There are other places around Albufeira - Olhos d Agua is more to my taste - smaller, prettier, quieter,  and even at busy times when it's high season it's not too overcrowded and I don't see any hoards of obnoxious drunks there.

I have got to agree with everything Tonisdad has said about Albufeira. It has changed so much over the years and not for the better. This week pictures were posted on Facebook, taken by someone who lives here. One was of two grossly overweight men with their backsides hanging out of skimpy clothing. The other was of a group of lads presumably on a stag party as one of them was dressed in only a pair of flip flops. Not a stitch on. Is this the sort of thing you want to be faced with when you go out? Do you want your young children seeing this type of behaviour. I am a married woman ( and have been for many years) but I don't want to see someone's bits and pieces on display. I am afraid the Mayor of Albufeira needs to see what is happening to the town and put a stop to it. Exhibitionist behaviour has no place in what should be a family resort.

Fear not, the summer police reinforcements will soon be arriving. These are the hard lot from Lisbon. They park their vans in the potential trouble spots. Woe betide anyone overstepping the mark with them around.

We were all young once (really) and I am sure we did some pretty stupid things after a couple of pints.  As usual it's just a few who cause real problems. A good whack with a baton would sort them out. Maybe a bit of tear gas. Hang 'em and flog 'em, that's what I say. Big smile

I have also spotted 'no stags or hens' signs on a couple of bars where I've not not seen them before.

Meanwhile I am shortly off for some charming, witty and intelligent company for a few hours.  Not telling you!
