Pool / Spa
Very clean ,it was very quiet on these 2weeks 30 September /14 October .Easy walking distance to shops, beach ,bus's and restaurants . Recommend to stay here .
Fantastic, already booked for next year!
Myself and 3 friend's visited from September 5th to 12th. The apartment was huge, bright, and most importantly clean. The bedrooms are large with plenty of wardrobe space and 2 more wardrobes in the passage. 2 bathrooms and a seperate toilet room was great for 4 women all trying to get ready at the same time. The 3 Balconies were ideal for sitting on relaxing in the shade or topping up the tan overlooking the pool. One balcony had the clothes dryer so perfect for drying beach towels. Kitchen is large and bright with everything you could need. The pool area was always clean and we never had a problem getting 4 sun loungers. The closest convenience store is just a few minutes walk away and a lovely chicken/pizza takeaway (I think you can also sit in) is just next door. The apartments were really peaceful and we felt safe and secure with the electric shutters on all windows. There was also a security guard walking around at night.
We visited some nice restaurants on the strip which was a 10 minute walk away. The old town was a 10 minute taxi ride which cost around €6, with lot's of lovely little shops and restaurants to visit. Be warned if taking younger children the strip and some parts of the old town are rather wild but there's lot's of lovely places to eat and drink if you'd rather avoid the party scene.
If I had to make any suggestions I'd say better lighting in the double bedroom near the wardrobe would be great and possibly extra sheets and pillows left in one of the wardrobes in case you wanted to make up the sofa bed. I hurt my back (old injury) and wanted to try out a different bed to see if it eased. A quick text to Wendy and sheets arrived that night. Great service but would of preferred not to bother her for something trivial.
Overall we had a fantastic time and couldn't fault Tony and his team. Every email or text was responded to quickly and efficiently, Tony is more than happy to answer any questions you may have. The man that collected us from the airport and took us back again was great. Friendly, on time and showed us around the apartment and gave recommendations on where to visit.
We wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend this apartment to anyone. It has something for everyone.
Nice apartment maybe not such a great location
* Large apartment
* Bonus third ‘bedroom’
* Perfectly positioned for the pool. We enjoyed sitting there, reading and watching our kids in the afternoon whilst we had a drink (no alcohol by the pool)
* All the equipment you need in an apartment (except never found the dryer)
* Tony was very helpful throughout. He also organised transfers and a later check out
* Five minute walk from the famous Strip, if that’s your thing. Albufeira definitely has a brits abroad/Benidorm feel.
Things to consider
* The apartment is situated near some very busy main roads. Beaches, restaurants, shops etc are not too far but only accessible by walking alongside these busy roads. Didn’t always feel safe with young children
* It’s quite far from the old town and the marina area unfortunately
* We went in the middle of August and as the other apartments are let by other owners, who knows who your neighbours will be. There were some large noisy parties whilst we were there. One took over the pool with large inflatables. Yes there are security guards, sometimes. But no good if the holiday maker argues back
* Finally, we found the apartment block to be noisy. There seemed to be very little soundproofing so could hear other apartments as well as noise outside. People ringing the door buzzer at 3 am on the last night was a particular low. We went home for a good sleep.
Exceeded every expectation
Tony and his team were absolutely brilliant from the beginning and throughout. Responses were super quick and explained everything very clearly.
The apartment is gorgeous, much bigger and more impressive than the pictures. We went late June-early July and the pool was never crowded, just a family here or there so plenty of space round the pool.
The apartment is in the perfect location with everything you need within walking distance.
The strip is a 5min walk away and offers a great and cheap night out, there are several supermarkets within walking distance (however they're all quite small so I'd suggest getting a taxi - which is very cheap and quick - to a bigger more commercial supermarket if you want to do a bigger shop/have more variety)
The apartment is right next door so a peri peri chicken restaurant, a nice bar and restaurant as well as another pool and a 24hr snack shack.
There is a booklet in the apartment with an abundant amount of information of local amenities and directions as well as useful numbers.
Taxis are very cheap - we got a taxi from the old town straight to our door for €5 (and as the corcovada building is quite well known all taxis knew exactly where to find us)
Tuk Tuk's are more expensive (it cost us €10) to get to the old town but was a fun experience and can usually haggle a lower price than quoted.
The apartment was great, with air con, 3 toilets and 2 baths/showers and beds to fit up to 7 people. There are many beaches nearby, we took a €5 taxi to the beach 'Praia los aveiros' which was one of the smallest beaches (more of a cove) and wasn't too busy which was nice.
The weather was lovely and only rained briefly once during the night.
I would not reccomend thin heels as all the pavements are cobbled.
Overall a wonderful experience, would 100% reccomend.
Fantastic apartment every thing you need
Would recommend this apartment highly very spacious clean everything you need in a self catering pool great quiet grounds very clean well looked after and not far from shops and nightlife should you wish plenty dvd and books should you wish to chill most enjoyable stay for 4 retired female friends had a ball
Fantastic apartment that is much more than expected.
We had a brilliant holiday last week. The description of the apartment does not do it justice as when we arrived and got into the apartment we were amazed by the sheer size of the rooms, and the space throughout the apartment. The double room has an en-suite bathroom, built-in wardrobes, dressing table and a balcony with table and 4 chairs, there is plenty of space. The twin room is massive, 2 single beds and built in wardrobes. There is no shortage of hanging space and cupboards in the hallway as well as the bedrooms. There is a family bathroom next to the twin room as well as another toilet at the other end of the hallway. The kitchen has a table and 4 chairs, washer/dryer, microwave/oven/cooker and loads of cupboards that contain just about every item you may need throughout your stay. The living room is great and even with 6 of us there we never felt under each others feet - 2 large sofas and a chair in the main living area, a sofa in the back area that was a sofa bed and a large dining table with 6 chairs so somewhere for everyone to do their own thing if they wanted to. There were 2 smaller balconies off living room, one with 2 chairs and one with a table and 2 chairs overlooking the pool which was lovely. We would definitely go back to this apartment as it offered us more than we could have asked for.
Location for the pool, shops and eating out as great too. We all had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Thanks Tony
Parque da Corcovada lies to the east of Albufeira and is ideally located for trips attractions such as 'Zoomarine' and 'Slide and Splash' as well as theme parks, water sports and golf. The world famous 'Strip' is a short walk away with its many bars restaurants and shops. This leads to the local beach of Praia de Oura. Or take a walk to the historic 'Old Town' with its delightful square surrounded by restaurants catering for all tastes and pockets and plenty of pubs and bars. Fishermans beach can be accessed from the old town and further along the beach is the ultra-modern marina and fishing harbour.
A non-refundable deposit of 25% is required to secure booking with balance payable 8 weeks before arrival. I would strongly recommend taking out holiday insurance.
