Nice apartment, good location

  • 2 of 5

Nice apartment in a good location for our 5+ week stay, but:

-Air conditioning broke down before we got there, and neither the owner or her "representative" seemed at all interested in getting it repaired while we were there. I suspect it won't get fixed now until next summer when the owner next visits.

-Despite being advertised as having Sky Satellite TV, only 4-Portuguese channels are available. We were advised by a neighbour that Sky Satellite TV has not been in the area for over a year.

-Only 1-set of keys is provided by the owner (or her representative) to renters. Extremely inconvenient and even dangerous, since if the door is key locked from the outside, anyone left inside can't get out without a key, and in the event of a medical emergency, i.e. heart attack, or fire, etc., could die! Conversely, if someone goes out without a key and leaves it with someone in the apartment, the one without a key couldn't get back into the building or the apartment should the person with the key have gone out shopping, for a walk, etc. And if you happened to lose the key, you're screwed------- you couldn't even call or email for assistance, because my phone, laptop, phone numbers, email addresses, etc., would be locked in the apartment! And the whole situation could be solved by the owner cutting an extra set of keys for $10 Euros or less!!!

-The kitchen is poorly equipped. Every shelf on the inside door of the fridge was broken and stacked up on top of a cupboard. Cereal bowls and saucers are mismatched, and only 1-wine glass and 1-sorta wine glass were provided-----with more than 2-people, 1-would have to drink wine out of a water glass or coffee mug! Cookware was in poor shape---- 2-pots were unusable, the 3-frying pans should have been replaced years ago, and the largest pot didn't have a proper lid.

-The tri-fold type of shower door was cracked (repaired with tape) and moldy, and sometime wouldn't keep the water in the tub. Consequently, we had to mop the flooded bathroom floor at least 3-times.

-No cleaning products were left for us to keep the floors or the bathtub clean. Anyway, the mop was filthy and should have been replaced, and the mop pail wringer was broken.

-The barbeque on the balcony hadn't been cleaned for a long time, and the grate was filthy and should have been replaced----- so we didn't use it at all.

Despite all of the above, we had a wonderful vacation, and with proper care, upgrading and repair, this could be a fantastic rental!

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as expected well maintained. Only disappointment was the balcony furniture which we found uncomfortable, could do with updating.

In an ideal location close to the beach and some great places to eat. Would recommend trying the Vista Mar and The Clipper. The promenade lovely to stroll along in the evening. Ideal base to explore the Algarve.A visit to Salgados Beach highly recommended and the sand sculptures at Pera.

Portugese Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Well to begin with; I would heartily recommend Portugal to anyone, the country has a fabulous history and is stunning in places, the people are great and the food and drink is well priced and good quality. We stayed at Armarcao De Pera as a result of a recommendation from friends and found this place for rent on a website. The owners were honest and very helpful, they had a book listing things you could do in the area which proved a great resource. The apartment was clean and the amenities were great as well, we had satellite TV, great air conditioning and a working kitchen and laundry. The apartment is no more then a ten minute walk from the beach and we felt totally safe walking home at night. The apartment was also situated near the end of the beach so we were very close to the visually stunning cliffs and caves. Myself and my wife were on a budget and we felt we got great value for money, our "landlords" were great and we had one of the most romantic holidays of our lives.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Myself & my boyfriend were looking for a relaxing break and that's exactly what we got. The apartment was well located & really well equipped which meant that we could choose to eat in or go out. We had a hire car (plenty of parking outside the apartment) and explored some of the coast while we were there, but we were also within walking distance of the gorgeous beach at Armacao de Pera. We'll definitely go back.

Fantastic Stay May 2009

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was perfect, modern very well equipt from Kitchen to TV & extras. Pool lovely for the evening of our arrival but the beach is Magnificent. Easy stroll to great selection of Restaurants, the Thai in the Old town really good and very reasonable and the cocktails in the Havana Club worth a visit. We hope to be back soon with the kids.
