Great stay, great apartment, great location

5 of 5
The apartment is impeccable, clean and tidy with everything you could need, including a safe for valuables. There’s an outdoor patio area which gets the morning sun, lovely to have breakfast out there! There is a nice pool in the complex and another larger one at the hotel part of the Cerro Mar establishment just across the road. We tended to use the larger pool most of the time as there is a bar, and food and ice cream stand there, plus the self-catering pool got a little busy with families at the time we were there. We also ate in the hotel restaurant one evening where there was a Portuguese singer and music and we ate traditional Portuguese steak! Delicious! There’s a convenience store right outside the complex which sells water, food and groceries, toiletries etc which is really useful, and 2 major supermarkets a couple of minutes drive/10-15 min walk away. The complex is on a steep hill which you walk straight down to some steps to get to the Old Town, 5-10 minute walk maximum (depending on your pace!) The steps bring you straight into the main square where all the restaurants and shops are, and then it’s just a few minutes to the beautiful sandy beach from there. The owners of the apartment have been really helpful and quick to respond to any queries, and helped us with airport transfers and also identified a place where we could go parasailing- a great experience! When we needed any taxis the hotel reception were pleased to order this for us and the cars were there within 5 minutes each time. I would definitely recommend this accommodation, thanks P & D!
