                                      Lovely apartment and location

                                      5 of 5
                                      This is a very nice apartment in a quiet location perfect for a relaxing holiday. The only just installed new shower/wet-room was excellent( there was a wee leak problem initially, but Robert had the plumber out to fix it within minutes of reporting it - well done!) The local Laguna golf clubhouse provided decent meals a 15 minute walk away, and a 5 minute taxi ride ($8) took us into the marina for nighttime entertainment. We hired bikes from the Funbike shop a couple of miles away (very decent carbon road bike and an urban bike) and had a great time pottering about Vilamoura and Quateria as well as a few longer run to Almancil and Loule. We will certainly consider this apartment again if we return to Vilamoura in the future.

                                      Perfect apartment for families

                                      5 of 5
                                      Christine was extremely helpful and looked after us on our stay, she arranged our transfer for us and on arrival we were offered the two bed apartment which is what this review is on not the one bed I am writing for. Apartment was clean, modern, spacious and with good supermarket and restaurant on site, which also offered a take away service which we used a few times!!. It was a perfect location for the road train stop (one minute walk down the road and comes every 20 minutes at that stop) it is ideal for families and offers easy access into Vilamoura stoping at all the essential places. Although apartment is about a 30 minute walk into town it is a beautiful and pleasant walk along a pedestrianised section of the highway. Our little boy loved the children's pool which was always warm despite not being heated, it could have been a little cleaner and looked after by the facility management as guests frequently cleaned on their behalf, but it was fab non the less. I really can't complain and would recommend Christine and her apartment's to anyone, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate booking again!

                                      Very enjoyable and relaxing stay

                                      4 of 5
                                      We loved the villa, it had everything you could want and we had a lot of fun in the pool and garden with the kids. The kids loved having their own room with bathroom and we enjoyed having the upper floor with terrace! The owners hospitality was wonderful leaving us a bottle of wine and other drinks when we arrived and we were even taken to the supermarket when we first arrived as the local shops had shut! The only negatives were that we didn't have a car and the villa is between towns and although we could walk to a little supermarket and pizza restaurant ,we had to get taxis to go everywhere else. Also the TV had only French channels and all the DVDs were French. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back!
