Large, well equipped apartment in a lovely location
The location of the apartment is great, within walking distance of many bars and restaurants and the town beach. Pool area is very well looked after and there are plenty of sunbeds. The apartment is well equipped with 2 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
Having previously stayed at Monte Dorado but in a different apartment, we were aware what the resort and complex had to offer. This apartment is situated at the top of the complex and provides good views and access to one of the pool areas. The apartment is equipped with most things you will need for the holiday. The availability of small beach chairs and umbrellas, would have added to the facilities offered by the apartment, however, this did not take anything away from our enjoyment. The complex is positioned at the top of a quite steep incline, which should be considered by those with restricted mobility. We welcomed the exercise.
The resort of Carvoeiro has numerous restaurants that cater for most tastes. Atlantic View provides a good selection of home made burgers, in relaxing surroundings with great views, complimented by live entertainment on selected nights. 'A Fonte', a basic restaurant located up one of the side streets, offered fresh fish at reasonable prices. Hemmingways provides the must have sports bar, which provides in side and outside viewing for Sky Sports. We took a taxi to O Pecador in Benagil, which despite its prized position overlooking the beach, we found to be over priced for the fresh fish on offer. We had a better meal in 'A Fonte' albeit without the view.
We hired a car for the holiday and took the opportunity to explore other resorts in the Algarve. Having been to Carvoeiro for our last two holidays, we will probably try somewhere else on the Algarve next year, however, we would highly recommend Carvoeiro if you are visiting the Algarve.
Thanks for your constructive review and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. I'm also pleased that you reminded us of A Fonte restaurant. Up the tiny stairs on the in road just before you reach the square they also serve the most powerful chicken piri piri we've ever tasted. It comes separately in a very tiny side dish and one is warned to test very carefully. Its really spectacular.
Cannot wait to come back
We've had an amazing week The apartment is lovely. Quality and attention to detail is fantastic. Pool area lovely! Kids loved it. Loved Carvoeiro itself es[ the ice creams... Great restaurants & great atmosphere on the square at night. A brilliant place for families. We hope to come again soon.
Glad you all enjoyed yourselves in our favourite little town. We'd love to have you back at Ponto de Vista whenever you are ready - and hopefully if we have availability !
Fantastic stay in this lovely place
A great apartment in an excellent location. Everything you could want was thoughtfully provided and was in very good condition. Furniture and beds were comfortable and everything well laid out. We didn't cook as there are so many excellent restaurants within easy walking distance (Le Cro, Onze and Ele and Ela to name but a few) but the kitchen was well equipped had we wanted to eat in. Pools were very close as were all other facilities. Information from Richard, the owner, was detailed and very helpful. Altogether a brilliant stay - we can't wait until next time.
Many thanks for your kind words. I certainly agree with your restaurant choices, and maybe next time, I can suggest one or two more of the same genre.
A very relaxing break
We have just returned from Monte Dourado and have had the most relaxing week. We have visited Carveiro several times over the years but always rented villas. It made a nice change to rent an apartment this time. I was surprised at how close all the bars and restaurants were. The people are very friendly. The food very good and the accommodation was perfect for myself, husband & daughter. We would normally come here in August but would definitely consider coming back in May as less busy. And the weather was perfect!!
Will definitely use this apartment again.
A Fantastic Holiday at Ponte Vista
We had a super holiday staying at Ponte Vista!
Having visited Monte Dourado several times, we knew that the accommodation was going to be of a high standard but we were in for a treat- newly re-furbished kitchen and bathrooms and a lovely sea view from the balcony. Also it was in a quiet position in the complex. The booking procedure with Richard was quick and easy.
We had tasty meals at Happys, A Gale and Jota Lita, all of which are on Restaurant Hill. On our last day we enjoyed a lovely lunch overlooking the beach at Martins Grill.
All in all a relaxing holiday in Carveiro
The apartment is very centrally located within a 5 minute walk to a wide array of restaurants and bars and, of course, the town beach !
