What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is really spacious for a one bedroom property, it is newly renovated and has everything you need for a great holiday. Although it is not right in town it is only a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi ride and there are restaurants close by if you don't want to venture far. The spacious pool has a lovely surrounding garden area so it's a great place for children to play while parents can relax in the sunshine. There are bars offering snacks and drinks in the resort so you don't have to move far from your lounger and the apartment is less than a 2 minute walk from the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at 204 Quinta Do Paraiso from 25th-31st March, this is a re-furbished modernised apartment, with everything you could need, washing machine/ combination microwave/ coffee machine and even juicer and beach towels are provided. We chose to go out of season and it was just as looked after as in full season, the whole condo is still maintained to a high standard, with 2 pools just outside the patio doors and lots of sun loungers for you to relax and enjoy the sun. A 20 min walk down into Carvoeiro is a must in the morning and if you don't fancy walking back 5 euro is all it costs in a taxi.The management team Emma and Mike gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them, any query or question we had was resolved easily and even on our departure day they made it so smooth and relaxed.This was our first trip to Portugal, but will not be our last, we can recommend this apartment to family and friends ( we already have ) and look forward to our next stay at 204 Quinta Do Paraiso.

We would rate this apartment 5 star.

Enjoyable and relaxing stay. Excellent amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Our 2 year old son had a great time in the pool. There is also a small playground for toddlers. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The welcome basket was much appreciated after a lot of travel. Carveiro is only 20mins walk away. Would recommend the train ride.

lovely stay as usual

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased to be welcomed again by Mike and Emma and appreciated the welcome pack in the refrigerator.The apartment is clean and well equipped but the DVD player wouldn't scan the discs that we bought to view in lieu of viewing satellite broadcasts in English. The unavailability of such programmes across Iberia isn't the fault of our managers or owners but I feel that pressure needs to be brought to bear upon the satellite owners before Spain and Portugal become seriously disadvantaged by this. Apart from this niggle the holiday was delightful and the locality with its range of picturesque beaches and wide range of good, affordable restaurants has much to commend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and we're pleased you enjoyed your stay in our apartment again. The TV reception issue in Spain and Portugal is a frustrating one and we know that the management of Quinta do Paraiso itself is trying to find a local solution. With regard to the DVD player, we will investigate with Emma and Mike about UK disc compatibility and if the player is working properly. We look forward to you welcoming back again. Update 17/07: Quinta Do Paraiso now resolved the issue with the TV and we now have English channels back in the apartment.

204 Quinta Do Paraiso Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Algarve and it won't be the last. The apartment was lovely - clean and perfectly maintained. We were delighted on our arrival to find the kitchen well stocked with essentials-so we could has lunch on arrival. Mike met us and arranged to take us to the supermarket - he left us there so we didn't feel rushed. When he came back he took us on a tour round the town which gave us a chance to to get our bearings. This was a wonderful idea as we used the local shops the rest of the week. Of course we visited the wonderful restaurants in the town. As it was October the apartments were not all booked so the resort was very quiet - which made out holiday very quiet and peaceful. Everything was perfect and Emma and Mike who visited us just to check we were happy made us feel we were being looked after well. We would recommend this apartment and would love to visit it again.

Delightful accommodation in a peaceful environment

  • 5 of 5

Location of this ground floor apartment adjacent to a landscaped grass area gave plenty of opportunity to relax on sun loungers in the shade or sun as preferred. The property was clean and very well equipped and the satellite television picked up innumerable UK channels. Emma & Mike (managers) welcomed us and were present at our early morning departure. They were also at the end of a phone if we needed them. We very much appreciated the very comprehensive welcome goodies in the fridge on our arrival. The availability of a pool near to the apartment was appreciated in addition to the larger pools near reception. Restaurants that we would recommend are the Vimar at the top of Estrado do Farol and Oasis on the outbound road. We preferred the beaches around Ferrugudo and enjoyed lunches at the beach restaurants. A very relaxing and restful holiday with lovely weather and we would happily recommend this property to friends and relatives.

perfect family holiday apartment.

  • 5 of 5

the property is situated in a great complex with kids club, restaurant mini market etc all at hand. the apartment itself was lovely. very clean, bright and had

everything within it you needed for a selfcatering holiday. a further bonus was that it had a pool just outside the patio doors set in a lovely garden area. management team that organise the rental met us on arrival. how friendly. a few essentials had been left in the fridge for us on arrival. unexpected but very nice touch. thankyou! stayed with our two kids, aged 6 and 8. it was a perfect family holiday location. a nice 20 min walk downhill to carvoeira town which is beautiful. 6 euro for taxi back.there are a couple of traditional portuguese restaurants just a couple of minutes walk outside the complex which we tried. very friendly, nice food and very reasonable. lovely little cove beach down the hill and and quite a few steps towards carvoeira... well worth a visit though.spent a day in zoo marine. if you have kids another must see. we had a wonderful stay here. would highly recommend. we as a family will definately be back.

High spec spotless apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th time here and we plan to return. We were met on arrival by Emma and Mike which was very helpful and a generous welcome pack was supplied. The apartment is set in attractive gardens adjacent to one of the pools and is all low rise. The resorts has it's own kids club and offers daily activities. The onsite restaurant is good as is the main pool bar/ restaurant whch is only a few mintues walk away. Within approx 20 mins walking distant of the beach and resort center which has plenty of bars and restaurants. The walk back is quite steep but Quinta Do Paraiso runs it's own courtesy bus to and from the resort center. We would definately recommend to our friends and family.

This lovely one bedroom apartment is located on the popular Quinta do Paraiso resort in Carvoeiro, whether you are a family, couple or group of friends this resort is a great location for your holiday in Carvoeiro. The resort is approximately 1.2km from Praia do Carvoeiro (nearest beach) and the centre of town, it takes approximately 20 minutes to walk but if you don’t fancy doing it on foot it’s less than 5 minutes in a taxi.

The resort offers a variety of restaurants and bars , there is a pool side/snack bar just a few minutes from the apartment which is open at the end of July and the full month of August. There are two Portuguese restaurants and one Italian within a 5 minute walk all offering a varied menu and like any restaurant in Carvoeiro very family friendly. If you want to have a relaxing drink and snack you can take advantage of the main pool and bar area in Quinta Do Paraiso which is only a 5 minute walk away.

If you want a change from relaxing by the pool there are several sports and entertainment facilities on the resort which are ideal for adults and children. There is a diving centre onsite, this is an extra cost but well worth it. Alternatively you can visit the local water park ‘Slide n Splash’ which will keep children entertained for hours or you can head a bit further to the Zoo Marine (25 minute drive) which is a very popular sea life park with shows and a small water park – definitely a full day out.

Carvoeiro is a gorgeous town, once a small fishing village it has expanded over the years but has managed to avoid any high rise buildings and still has a lot of the original Portuguese charm. There is a great selection of cafe's where you can sample the great coffee and fabulous cakes and pastries and there is a great choice of bars and restaurants offering fresh fish, traditional Portuguese cuisine, European, Tapas, Indian, Italian,Chinese and much more. Carvoeiro has a lovely atmosphere and children are made to feel very welcome wherever they go. If you are a serious shopper then you can head to the shopping centre in Portimao but Carvoeiro has some great shops if you are looking for local souvenirs and there is a good variety of other shops available.

There are some amazing beaches in the Algarve, the closest beach to the apartment is Praia do Carvoeiro which is a small cove and very popular, you can book a boat trip and see the famous Algarve grottos, it's a great way to see the Algarvian coastline. If you have a car there are many beaches to choose from, you could easily visit a different beach everyday and fall in love with them all.

Carvoeiro is a great place if you want to get out and explore the Algarve, the historic town of Silves is only a 15 minute drive away or you can visit Ferragudo which is a small town just a 10 minute drive away. If you would like to go a bit further you can head out to Lagos and see the newly developed marina or head further West to see the beautiful beaches on the West Coast.

If you are a keen golfer you are only a 10 minute drive from the Pestana Gramacho golf course and a 15 minute drive to Pestana Pinta golf course, both excellent courses to play,
