Just missing a balcony, but pool area is lovely and there's seating at the side, so no great loss. Also a great little bar over the road, Merlins-lee and Andreas make you so welcome! Would recommend to all my friends.

Is a great apartment in a fantastic location close to all the bars and eateries of the Old Town (2 Minute Walk). Parking an issue but plenty of street parking in streets above the apartment. apartment has all that you would require for your stay and plenty of room for families if more than two staying. Would highly recommend this place too anyone wishing to visit this area. only downside would be the mattresses (Hard) otherwise Thanks for a super stay .

The balcony has a lovely view in both day and nighttime. Loved old town of albufeira and Marina. Went dolphin watching. This apartment is in perfect location if you don't mind the long hill back every night as is very close to the beach, Marina and a lot of really nice fish and authentic restaurants in the old town as opposed to the generic crap of 'the strip' which is a long walk away. Even though you are near to the old town there is no noise to be heard from the apartment. Would definitely go back and recommend. We went early March so can't touch for how busy old town gets in season but I would guess very.
