Guest Testimonials.

Well we had an absolutely fantastic holiday, everything and more we could have expected.

Thanks so much for the bubbly and pack you left for us, that was very kind and very much appreciated.

The apartment is really nice and suited us down to the ground in every respect. Club Albufeira was great, lovely pools and really well kept.

We had some great nights out in Old Town Albufeira, just loved the party atmosphere. In fact the holiday was 100% a success. We've put our comments in your guest book.

I'll be happy to recommend your place on should the occasion arise.


This is just a quick note of thanks for all your support & help in making our holiday happen.

The apartment is lovely and was a great base for our holiday.

Allison & Keith were great too.

Jason Cozzi.

We had a great week over there-the weather, food and resort were terrific and above all the apartment was a great find.

A really enjoyable stay A1 !

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks Ted and Eileen for making our stay in the apartment so enjoyable. We shared the apartment with 2 friends who flew in from Germany (Wilfried Neuse and his wife Uschi).

We were very impressed with the communication with yourself and Eileen before our visit, including arranging 2 transfers from Faro Airport to the apartment, as we arrived on 3rd October and our German friends arrived 1 day later. The drivers were courteous and helpful and even carried our luggage up to the apartment on arrival, as I have mobility issues.

The apartment was spotless and very comfortable as well as being very well positioned for accessing the swimming pools. Eileen had arranged a "welcome" grocery pack for us on arrival which was very welcome indeed !. The kitchen was very well appointed for all our needs.

We also booked our hire car with Eileen's help and this worked very smoothly, with the car being delivered to, and collected from the apartment.

We can only recommend Ted's apartment and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future. We would recommend it to any prospective hirers !

Thanks again Ted and Eileen

Kind Regards

John and Joanna Stevenson

basic and faded

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was not very welcoming when we arrived-it was basic and furniture was old and worn.No spare bulbs for table lamps and the CD player was broken-Instructions for the TV related to a previous model ! We used our intelligence and IT knowledge to get the TV to work ,finally checked the remote and found badly corroded batteries left in it had been causing a short circuit.There were instructions for a washer/dryer that was no longer there! At least the new washing machine worked. The worst thing however was that the mattresses were badly stained, too hard and old-the 'mattress protecter' was also bloodstained and had human hairs adhered to it. We found another but it fell apart. Duvets supplied were prickly feather, too hot and were also blood-stained in places (-they should be replaced with synthetic washable ones urgently with a TOG rating of no more than 7.5). The kitchen equipment was sparse-there were two blackened pans which should have been thrown away years ago, a cheap warped and greasy baking tin and several mismatched glasses.Insufficient wine glasses or tumblers, just a few unwieldy beer tankards. We had to wash everything before use as it was greasy. Cutlery resembled school canteen stuff and was blunt-only 6 teaspoons for 4 of us! .We had to go and buy plastic ones, also glasses. No sharp knives.There was black mould behind the kitchen sink which needed total re-grouting urgently .No instructions for the old electric cooker-all symbols on the front of the oven and next to the hobs had been erased by scrubbing so we had to guess! We use gas at home. No condiments left for guest use as is normal practice, just three pots of salt and some stale oil. The toilet in the en-suite bathroom was dirty with excrement in the seat hinge and the slatted cupboards surrounding the sinks need a good clean. The sink was blocked in the family bathroom and the bath plug was missing.Bedside ' rugs' consisted of a couple of cheap Indian 'rag rugs' which were in need of a good wash and two old faded bathmats. A couple of sunloungers for the balcony would have been good and could easily have fitted in -we had no means of sunbathing comfortably and privately. Nothing much was open in November in Clube Albufeira but what we saw was fine and the pools looked very well cared for. Just a shame the apartment no way lived up to a 5 star rating and we noticed there had been a 5 year gap between reviews in the 'guest comment book'-disappointed.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment on a large but wonderful complex. The apartment was much larger than we expected with two full bathrooms (one ensuite). The air conditioninng kept the apartment cool. Beds were comfy and the apartment had everything you needed in terms of a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, hair dryer etc

The wifi was really good and a real bonus,

The apartment has a large balcony that has the sun all day!!

The complex has four pools and the apartment is only a few minutes walk from the largest pool with the pool bar.

All pools are wonderful.

We didn't have a hire car and didn't feel as if we needed one. It is easy and cheap to get a taxi into town If you want to. There is a great onsite shop that despite being small has a great variety of bits for self catering. The restaurants on site are wonderful and really reasonable.

Booking this apartment was very easy and I always got a quick/detailed response. The owner has someone based in Portugal that is on hand if needed and really helpful with organising a welcome pack, hire car, airport transfer etc.

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment and would love to return again, we would recommend this apartment for a great holiday.
