suited our needs, a little in need of repair but clean

  • 4 of 5

a lovely big apartment- sepperate annex ideal for my mother- 3 bedrooms in all- note there is no pool as like the lift it has fallen into disrepair- a shame but would prob cost more if it wasnt for these type of things

the shower needs replacing as doors do not fit proporly and needs re grouting badly- fridge shelf is broken and was glued back together resulting in a bottle of bailys and a carton of milk all over the floor when it collapsed- so beware!! apartment was clean well equiped and wi fi very good- we were met on arrival by la toya who was very helpful- lady who did transfers again most helpful- -

i feel with a little maintainance this could be so so much better, the sun shades on the balcony are broken from mounts so are unusable - a shame when it gets hot as you cant really sit on balcony for too long

none of this spoilt our stay and would not stop me booking again although i would certainly ask as some of these things should and could be repaired easily and cheaply

all in all a lovely apartment just let down by lack of repairs and maintainance but very comfortable none the less and very spacious

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday. I am very sorry about the problems that you experienced during your stay and we have already compensated you for the broken bottle of Bailey's and milk. We had no idea that the fridge shelf had been glued, as we would Never do anything like that. I can only think that this was done by a guest, who was trying to hide the fact that they had broken it. A new fridge has already been ordered. The parasol was probably broken in the wind and there was a second one there. These issues should have been picked up by our cleaners or management team and we have already taken steps, addressing all these matters. We hope to welcome you back in the near future and please contact us during your stay, if you do experience any problems and we will do everything we can to rectify the situation, immediately. Best wishes Barbara at Algarve Getaways

Excellent value for money. Good location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous large apartment in a very central location. Excellent value for money. No swimming pool but has everything else you would need.

We were there as a family of 8 for a week. We had teenage daughters and they got great use of the wifi and using the 2 smart tvs. The annex was a great location for teenagers to get away from the adults . The table and chairs on the terrace was great for dining al fresco.

Air con was well utilised due to high temperatures. Less than 10 minutes walk to the beach and most shops and restaurants.

We were greeted at the apartment upon arrival and given a tour of the apartment. We found the apartment very spacious and spotless clean it had everything we needed there was even a welcome pack in the kitchen. The apartment was just as described and we were delighted with it. We found Algarve Getaways to be very professional in everyway, the service, the attention to detail and very informative, the information pack in the apartment was great so much so we took a train ride up to Lisbon on the strenght of the contents in the pack and had a great day. I would definitely recommend Algarve Getaways for that extra touch.
