Excellent Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a wonderful holiday in Carvoeiro. The apartment exceed our expectations, it is spotless, extremely spacious with lots of storage space and has everything you could need. The super king sized bed in the main bedroom is extremely comfortable and the air conditioning was very smooth (not noisy at all). There are 2 showers with good power and plenty of hot water.

We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning looking at the beautiful view of Carvoeiro as well as the beautiful sunsets early in the evening.

The pool area is medium sized so there wasn’t any noise from other holiday makers in the morning or at night. There is a larger pool also in the resort. The resort is at the top of a hill, but if you are in reasonably good health it is very easy to walk up and down the hill (10 min walk).

Carvoeiro is a great area for families. The nightly entertainment in the square by the beach was very entertaining for children and adults. We ate out every night and the number and variety of restaurants was fantastic (every meal was delicious and people are very friendly and chatty). We also hired a car and toured the beautiful beaches and mountains of the Algarve.

The booking process from start to finish with Karen was easy and personable. Check in and Check Out at the resort was smooth, no problem for us to get a late check out at 2pm, just give reception 2-3 days notice.

I would highly recommend Karen’s apartment and Carvoeiro. We can’t wait to go back!

Family Friendly Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday and a large part of that was down to he apartment. We felt at home as soon as we walked through the door and it was more than we expected it to be. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome by they staff at reception however the welcome pack provided contained everything we needed to know. The apartment itself is in excellent condition and was cleaned just before we arrived with the high chair and cot already in place.

The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and the air conditioning was a welcome relief given the high temperatures for the first part of our stay. We enjoyed relaxing in the sitting room in the evening after a day of activities or sitting out on the large balcony. With the two little ones we didn't venture up onto the roof terrace but it looked like a fantastic place to spend an evening enjoying a BBQ and drinks. The kitchen came in very useful and is well stocked with cutlery, plates and pots and pans.

All in all the apartment was a very enjoyable relaxing base to have while away from home and it is certainly a place we would recommend and hope to return to either next year or in the near future. Also a big thanks to the owners, I found the process from start to finish to be more professional that some hotels that you might book through.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that our apartment exceeded your expectations! We aim to provide a home-from-home experience for all our guests which is relaxing, clean and comfortable. The staff are always more than happy to welcome all guests to the resort and together with their extensive knowledge of the resort and the Algarve in general, their advice is second to none. Yes, the roof terrace is the place to be for "sundowners" - a pity you were not able to use it this time but hopefully in the future when the children are older? It was a pleasure to welcome you to our apartment and I hope you return to Carvoeiro in the future. Regards, Karen and Eric

Fabulous, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious with all the home comforts you need for a self catering holiday.

There is loads of storage space in the bedroom.

The air conditioning was fantastic.

The apartment was cleaned every other day by the friendliest cleaners who were always smiling and a credit to Monte Dourado.

The beds are very comfortable.

The pool area is very clean and we happily chatted away to the other holiday makers.

i will definately return to this apartment again.

Great, airconned apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment surpassed expectations on many levels , spacious, clean, very comfortably furnished and what appeared to be very recent refurbs to bathroom , kitchen etc . The aircon was a godsend in the very hot weather we had during our stay.

The balcony had a dining table and chairs overlooking the pool. It also had a large private roof terrace with BBQ, again with table and chairs.

It was in a small group of apartments built around its own self contained pool area, there was never a problem getting sunbeds and parasols as everyone followed the resort rule of no "bed reservations with towels"

The many restaurants and thriving centre of Carvoeiro and Estrada Do Farol were each about 10 minutes walk away

We had a late flight but the arrangement for key collection from the resort reception worked without a problem

Carvoeiro is a great area for families , unaffected by the drunken hooligan fraternity, I would recommend this apartment without hesitation, Karen was extremely helpful from booking enquiry through to speedy return of the security deposit upon our return home

The reception arrangements for our late arrival worked without any glitches and the staff were helpful during our stay

The number and variety of restaurants in Carvoeiro was fantastic (both in the town centre and Estrada del Farol) -far more than impressions given by various reviews and trip advisor etc -all with easy walking distance.

I would certainly recommend the apartment and the place to anyone ! I'll put a review on HomeAway in the next few days

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that our apartment surpassed expectations on so many levels. We love Carvoeiro with its variety of restaurants and bars. As you mention, being a family resort, we find that families return year after year so the children and adults can meet up annually - we have done this ourselves! We agree that the staff could not be more helpful and do their utmost to ensure that our guests have a pleasant and enjoyable stay. We would love to welcome you back in the future ! Karen and Eric

Excellent apartment and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment before and revisited it this year. Ideal location and apartment is clean, modern and perfect for a couple or small family. The pool area is quiet but there is the additional option of privacy with the terrace above the flat. We used the terrace a few times and enjoyed the privacy. The stairs up to the terrace are manageable but young children might require care when using them. The apartment is lovely; kitchen is good and there is a large living space also. Complex tends to be quiet late June and early July. Good and easy access to Carvoeiro (steep but manageable hills to climb when returning). Would recommend this apartment and would look to rent it again.

Car parking is close to the front door. Please note that the Monte Dourado resort is situated on a hillside. Its only 5 minutes walk down hill to the village and its good exercise on the way back! There are taxis in the town centre that can take you back which will cost about 3 Euros because it is so close.

TRAVEL - Carvoeiro is a 45 min drive from Faro airport. Budget airlines e.g. Thomsonfly, Monarch, Flybe, Easy Jet and Jet2 fly from airports all around the UK with German wings, Hapag Lloyd flying from Germany. Most of these airlines are linked to car hire and transfer facilities though these can easily be booked independently. Car hire is available from Faro airport or within Carvoeiro. It is always advisable to book car hire and transfers in advance. We can give advice on these.

Carvoeiro is an attractive seaside resort cut with beautiful cliff top walks. Many of them on newly installed boardwalks (See Photos) A traditional way of life still thrives alongside a modern resort. The main beach is only 5 minutes walk away. There are many beautiful beaches to visit within 3km of Carvoeiro: Praia de Centianes, Praia de Carvalho, Praia de Benagil, Praia de Albandeira and Praia de Marinha which is one of the six Government designated golden beaches in Portugal singled out because of their water purity and beauty.

Other championship courses are Penina and Palmares which are a 30 minute drive away and Vilamoura 35 minutes drive away. Quinta do Lago and Vale Do Lobo are 40 minutes drive away.

SPECIAL INTEREST - Motor Racing: For motor racing enthusiasts, the brand new Autodromo International do Algarve located in Escapadinho, in the foothills of the coastal town of Portimao is only 20 minutes drive away. Around 195 million Euros has been allocated to the development of the Autodromo, making it the biggest investment ever in the Algarve.The circuit was opened in 2008 and has already held a round of the 'Superbike World Championship'. As well as the circuit, the project also includes a karting track, a technology park, a luxury five-star hotel, a sports complex and numerous apartments. The Carvoeiro Clube de Tennis is open to non-residents, and The School of Wind Surfing at Praia Grande Ferraguda is just 10 min drive away.
