Smashing Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

Fed up staying in poorly equipped apartments? This spacious apartment contained everything you could possibly wish for & far more! All the rooms are good sized & very clean. Being on the ground floor, you have the additional space between the apartments patio doors & pool in the well maintained garden to relax on the sunbeds provided. This is also a good spot for a BBQ should you fancy a night in. The apartment block provided a barrier from the wind when it got up some days in the afternoon giving this apartment an edge over the others. The pool is spotless & not busy as many apartments are owned as second holiday homes by people who do not rent them out. Mid-June, we were often the only people enjoying this large pool. The Marina is a 15 minute stroll all downhill from the apartment (5 / 6 euros for a cab back from the centre of Lagos if the uphill walk back doesn’t tickle your fancy) with the old town another 5 minute walk. So much to see and do, this really is a great holiday spot for all ages.

We had a lovely and relaxing stay. It is a spacious and cool apartment which is very well equipped (including champagne flutes!). Lots of pool/beach toys, floats and umbrellas available to use too.

Very child friendly, with a child proof gate leading to the pool. The grounds were very well cared for and just a short drive or 20 minute walk into town.

Exceptional holiday, home from home apartment

  • 5 of 5

Another amazing 2 weeks holiday in this apartment. Apartment was clean and well maintained with everything you could ask for from washing machine, dishwaher, TV, Wifi etc close to many supermarkets including Aldi and Lidi which makes shopping easy. I have been here a number of times and cannot fault it. Ground floor apartment right next to the pool. spend some lovely evenings out eating at the many beautiful restaurants (too many to choose from) lots of street entertainers in the centre of lagos and great atmosphere to sit and soak up it all up. Some days we even had the pool to ourselves. Many beaches but our favorite Mei Prai is some 3 miles stretch of golden sand and calm waters so the kids could enjoy time building sandcastles to splashing in the sea. lots of beautiful beaches in Lagos as well as up the east coast. All worth a visit. Kids loved Splash and slide a great fun packed day out. getting from the airport wash made with ease usng Algrave private taxi which was only 10 euros dearer than the hopper transfer bus but took us straight to the door and were so good. we have also in the past hired a car from the airport to the apartment with an easy drive just under an hour to the apartment.

Pool is well maintained by the resident gardner along with the grounds, lots of lovely families and kids enjoy the pool making friends and playing ball etc.

small hill down to the Marina restaurants or futher lovely walk along the promenade to the town restaurants.

lots of trips and water sports to choose from if you wish to do so but we have done these previously so spend out days chilling by the pool, beach, along with eating out or using the BBQ and just enjoying the peace and quiet of the grounds..

would highly recommend this apartment and complex.

Super family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a family holiday here in July for 2 weeks. The apartment was very well equipped, clean tidy, well maintained and comfortable. The gardens were lovely and kept to a high standard. Our children enjoyed the large swimming pool which we usually had to ourselves.

The location is handy for the Marina and town. We had a car that was ideal for visiting the supermarket - a short drive away and exploring the area.

Third excellent trip to Albardeira Apartments

  • 5 of 5

It is several years since our last visit and we were glad to see that the apartment had been upgraded with new kitchen and bathroom. It is a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of Lagos but within easy walking distance of the town and marina. It even has a small bar serving drinks and food just round the corner. Enjoyed meals at the local Bom Pecado restaurant and the new Gaivota Branco restaurant on the beach.

Once again we were blessed with good sunny weather and whilst enjoying the heat also welcomed the cool interior of the apartment at times.

Idealer Standort für die Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Für zwei bis vier Personen toller Standort, um die Algarve zu erleben. Wir waren jetzt zum 4.Mal für 3 -4 Monate und werden wieder buchen. Nahe zur Stadt Lagos (20 Minuten zu Fuß), schnell an der Atlantik Küste (25 KM Sagres oder Aljezur), schnell zu den schönsten Ortschaften im Osten (Alvor, Ferragudo, Silves, Carvoeiro, Albufeira usw).

Das Appartement ist sehr geräumig und mit allem gut ausgestattet, was man braucht. Super, deutsches SAT-TV! Bei zwei Bädern keinerlei Engpässe auch bei mehreren Personen. EG-Terrasse und davor Wiese, wo man sich auch gut aufhalten kann. Für uns mit Hund ideal! Gesamtanlage sehr gepflegt, natürlich mit Swimmingpool und großem Parkplatz.

Lagos is the third largest town in the Algarve and steeped in history, dating back to the Moorish invasion. The old part of the town, where the original walls of the town remain, has been beautifully restored with its cobbled streets and flower decked squares. Lagos was the home port of many explorers who first charted the spice routes to India, along with the very first slave market in Europe, the building where the slave auctions took place can be seen today selling arts and crafts. In the town centre boutiques and antique shops sell copper, brass and pewter whilst the terrific variety of restaurants, bars and cafes offer mouth watering menus and thirst quenching local and international beers and wines.
