Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had such a lovely time in Albuferia. The apartments were in a great location, the Old Town was easily assessible and had everything you could need. The pool and suurounding area was clean and well maintained. I would reccomend this accommodation to friends and family visiting the Algarve.

The owners also organised our airport transfers which was extra conveinent and they were so helpful with you queries etc. Thank you.

Clean,spacious apartment home from home

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned after a fabulous week staying at this apartment.Eveything exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived.Transfer was very swift from faro we used yellowfish transfers for this and can recommend them highly.Once we arrived at the complex this apartment is everything you could possibly wish for from a self catering holiday.Very spacious and very well equipped for all your needs.Gardens and pools were all well maintained.Location itself was ideal for us being very peaceful yet only a five minute walk to the main strip of bars and restaurants and about a fifteen minute walk to the beach which we personally enjoyed or you can take the tourist train from the strip to fishermans beach in the old town.We would like to say a big thank you to Alan who was most helpful from start to finish in our booking of his apartment and we would not hesitate in recommending his property to anyone looking for that perfect get away.We very much look foward to returning in the near future.

July 2012 fantastic holiday and apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this one bedroom property for 2weeks, with 2yr old in july. Everything about this place was great, ease of booking, getting to and from and the stay. Apartment was clean and very comfortable. I would maybe say a mirror in the bedroom would be nice. Everything you could want for a home from home holiday. Our 2yr old, loved the place, did not want to leave. All in all, the best holiday we have had in a long time, thanks to Alan, he was great to deal with and very helpful. Look forward to future bookings.

LOVELY APARTMENT GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in Sept. Great apartment and location is perfect five minutes to the strip yet not a bit of noise at night. Alan arranged taxi to collect and drop to the airport. Complex great plenty of sunbeds around pool. Security men patrolling around complex all day. Alan sent on plenty of details to us prior to travelling which was very helpful.Would stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Portugal.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Alan's 1 bed apartment for 1 week 22nd June to 29th this year. Alan was an absolute pleasure to deal with and his apartment was all that he promised it would be. The location was brilliant : close to all amenities, supermarket, bars, restaurants, and the strip. It was very spacious and every facility provided. It was very quiet at night which is always a bonus. The apartment was well maintained and very clean. There were two balconies one off the living room and one of the bedroom which were suntraps in the evening much better than in the morning! All in all an excellent apartment and would go back no problem !!

The 'Strip' is just 5 minutes walk with restaurants, nightclubs, bars and shops, and a fabulous atmosphere. For those wanting a quieter night out there are many great restaurants and bars within a 10 minute radius.

During the day the stunning beaches Praia da Oura and Praia dos Aveiros are just 10-15 minutes walk or get the bus from right outside the apartment complex. The nearest golf course is Balaia Golf about a 15 minute walk, which is one of the few on the Algarve where you don't require a proof of handicap. Other great attractions are Zoo Marine and Slide and Splash, a fun day out for all the family. The new Formula One circuit at Portimao is only a 30 minute drive away.

Golf: One of the few golf courses in the Algarve you can play on without a handicap certificate is just 20 minutes walk away or a few minutes drive.
