Fab location, fab view and all the amenities for a comfortable stress free stay well be back

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 8 day stay here in April. The apartment is spacious and fully equipped as a family of 5 we can often feel a little cramped whilst away but this apartment was great . The meet and greet by the algarve getaways staff was a lovely touch we have visited the area many times before but for those but for those new to the area Daniel and Julia had lots of information and tips explained how to use all the amenities and things like the safe, air conditioning/heating, etc which was handy as we had a few iffy weather days - they were on hand throughout our stay for any questions and organised our airport transfers for us which were very efficient and a competitive price . A nice touch was the welcome pack little things like milk, tea , juice coffee, bin bags, toilet roll, and a bottle of wine etc meant we didn't have to rush out to the supermarket straight away on our arrival . Wifi is included and there are a supply of dvds and books should you need them. The location of the apartment is close to a good choice of restaurants, a couple of supermarkets and a 5 minute walk down to the front where there are more bars and places to eat. The balcony has views over the pool, tennis courts and sea in the background which is lovely. We used the tennis courts on a few occasions and the girls loved the little play equipment by the pool. There were plenty of sun beds and shades - the pool was freezing as you would expect this time of year but the girls still ventured in. We felt totally safe , there was key coded entry and a big locking system on the door. We are already looking at dates to book to return later in the year.

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
