Fantastic apartment and complex

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic holiday in this 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was excellent, with all th emod cons that you could possible want. The apartment was clean and tidy and close to all the facilities. The complex has a great pool and other facilities including games facilities, a small gym and even a squash court!

I will definately be going back.
The description given by Algarve Getaways was very accurate. Algarve Getaways were always at hand to provide excellent customer service. They were very helpful with recommending restaurants and other activities.
The weather was also fantastic. We really enjoyed using the BBQ facilities upon the roof.
