Beautiful apartment, lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well appointed, very clean and had every thing we need.

Nice touch was good broadband with British tv channels available too!

Very quiet at night, yet only a short walk into Old Town Albufeira, which has a good mix of restaurants & bars and a fabulous beach, all just 10 mins walk from the apartment.

Nice pool, not too crowded: even had our own personal sun beds to use.

Algarve Getaways were very professional & arranged airport transfers for us.

This is our second visit, and second time in this apartment!

It's that good!

We would recommend it gladly.

Beautiful apt. On nice small complex.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed with everything we could want inc. washer, micro & even a coffee machine!

It had just been decorated so felt like new.

The complex is nice and small and the apt overlooked the pool (also has its own sun beds).

The location was great, very near to Albufeira old town, but as its on the hill above the town, was very quiet for a good nights sleep.

We loved Albufeira, as it is lively but not garish, with lots of different restaurants to suit all tastes. We found a fabulous Mexican!

We love live music and found some great guitarists and a rock band in the town.

Algarve Getaways gave us a great service inc. pick up from airport & a welcome pack upon arrival.

We would highly recommend this apt & Algarve Getaways & can't wait to return.

Great apartment in a great complex.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've booked through Algarve Getaways and again have been very pleased with the service. The apartment was very clean & tidy and had everything we needed for our 2 weeks stay. The swimming pool was never very busy and was a good size. Only ten minutes walk to the Old Town Square, where there are plenty of restaurants, (and bars), catering mainly for families and couples. Another 5 minutes takes you to the beach.

Overall it was our best relaxing holiday yet. Our two children, 15 & 11 years of age thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done, the staff at Algarve Getaways. Thank you so much.

Great location, excellent accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location, close to Old Town Square & Fisherman’s Beach with a variety of restaurants & bars. The apartment is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean with all mod cons. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
