                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I really enjoyed staying in this spacious 2 bedroom apartment, it had everything you could need which was stated on the website and more! We were greeted by Wendy who was really helpful with information about the area and was very welcoming! The apartment was very tidy and well maintained, we enjoyed using the pool which we didn't have to rush over to because it was never over crowding. It was very relaxing sitting by the pool some days and other days visiting lots of different areas of Portugal. We had an amazing breakfast at the benimor golf site which was peaceful and had a lovely scenery, we definately recommend!! And also lots of great places to eat down on the seafront in the evening. We had the best holiday and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else now when visiting Portugal. Thank you dean and Lisa for letting us stay in this beautiful apartment and we would definately recommend to everyone! Most definately would want to stay again

                                                                                                      4 of 5
