Perfect apartment, great pool, good location.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well equipped, but felt that second bedroom/bathroom was more suited to children or young adults, due to the size of beds. A mirror would have helped in the second room as well.

Leaves a little to be desired - beds good, kitchen well equipped, but...

  • 4 of 5

• Drains smell when entering property.

• Poor balcony seating (4people x2 chairs) no cushions.

• Loose lounge curtain rail (temp fixed by us).

• Not very comfy sofa.

• Sun shutters 'tender' getting worn; need attention, particularly main bedroom.

• TV 'unworkable' no Sky, no instructions that we could find; however didn't spoil anything.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very generous 4-star rating. If I stayed in accommodation that was as bad as this, I would probably give it no more than 2 or 3 stars. It is however, one of our most popular apartments and is always so heavily booked and I hope that any future, sensible guests, will take those previous reviews, more seriously than yours. There must be some positive reasons why many guests book from year to year and it is a pity that you didn’t mention any of them. All our guests are shown how to use the TV during their personal meet-and-greet. Our staff are available 24/7 should you need them at all during you stay, for things like holding up a curtain rail but none of them heard from you at all. We rely on our guests to contact us for simple maintenance issues that may arise during their stay and always do a full maintenance check at the end of each season. There are 4 chairs on the balcony but as 2 of them were on the side, maybe you didn’t see them. We are rather proud of our apartments and our excellent reputation and thankfully, reviews like yours are a rarity. I wish you all the best for your future holidays. Kind Regards, Barbara at Algarve Getaways

Lovely apartment, in a good location, good pool area/ sunbeds, close to bars & restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

Collected by minibus & at apartment within 45mins of landing arranged by Irene in your office,

Found Cabana Bar on 1st night & returned many times, good drinks/cocktails & a good atmosphere just 5 mins from apartment, Black Cat bar, really unusual, great music, & a friendly owner in Roy. Close to a local supermarket, & 5 mins to larger one, bus stop/taxi rank at bottom of street & only 7 euros in taxi to the strip or old town, all four of us agreed we would return to the complex & yet again to Portugal. The smaller bedroom lacked a mirror, & a pair of straighteners, & pool towels would be a good addition, (we visited Lanzarote using HomeAway in March & Catherine had supplied those extras) just a suggestion, but a good stay never the less.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed and informative review, which is so helpful for future guests. It sounds like you made the most of the apartment's excellent and central but quiet location. We would happily put a mirror into the second bedroom and I have already passed this information onto the Algarve Getaways management team. We would not, however, supply hair straighteners, due to health and safety issues. Pool towels are available for hire, if required but guests usually bring their own. We cannot include it in the price, as we already provide a midweek towel change for guests, with a clean of the bathroom, which is an additional service, many other companies do not supply and we want to keep our rates as reasonable as possible. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways

Excellent holiday, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a two week holiday, with 3 children aged 1 year to 6 years. The apartment is very large and spacious. Plenty of towels and cleaning service were excellent. The complex is lovely and clean, very well kept. The local area and beach are easy to get to, and all the local people are lovely. I would also definitely recommend Algarve Getways. All the staff I spoke with before and during my stay were wonderful, and extremely helpful. They could never do enough to ensure the holiday was nothing but the best. I'll definitely be booking again for next year.

Excellent location and great facilities

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a secure building and was well maintained and spotlessly clean. The location is perfect for walking to the beach and the local restaurants and I would defininitely stay here again. I recommend Caffe Creme for croissants and coffee in the morning or a delicious cake and it's only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. Pizzeria Fratelli near the beach is also excellent - fantastic food and family-friendly.
