Excellent apartment and on site facilities

  • 5 of 5

Just back after spending 14 nights in this fantastic apartment which is ideally located in the centre of the club with easy access to the pools, bars and restaurants on site. The apartment is very well equipped and the living area spacious, the photos do not do full justice to this property. The outside garden area is great and fully echo the comments of others that it provides a safe environment to relax if you have young children.

We chose not to hire a car and instead opted to just use taxis which can be booked at the club reception for a small charge. €5 will get you into the old town and even when we went further afield to the Zoomarine water/theme park it was only €15 each way (Note: there is a free bus service available from the club, but we wanted the flexibility to come/go as we pleased).

As well as the mini market on site and the slightly larger shop over the road at the camp site there is a Pingo Doce supermarket about 1.5km down the road which stocks most things you might need during your stay. Also nearby is Restaurante A Cocheira, ideal if you're looking for a change from what is available on site and don't fancy venturing too far, the service and the food on our visit were both first class.

John has been a pleasure to deal with from the initial booking right up to the end of our stay, always prompt to respond to any questions or queries we have had.

Just as described

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a week in this apartment before heading off to another location, and a week wasn't long enough. It was just as described, if anything, the photos don't do it justice. I went with my partner and two children (3 & 2 years) and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The grass area outside the terrace was great for kids. It was quite private and felt safe. The complex itself was great, and we spent most of our days at the 'top pool' where we'd eat lunch too. The staff on site at the complex were fantastic, so polite. We would definitely look at going back.

Lovely apartment, clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 11 night stay in the apartment which was in a quiet location and had a patio and garden where we could relax on sun loungers when not using the pool. The owner was extremely helpful and we would recommend this apartment for either couples or a family. We walked into the town every evening where there are many restaurants to chose from one of our favourites is Ricardo's. The Portugese people are really friendly and it was a perfect, relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi Sharon and family. It was a real pleasure to host you and your family. Thank you for your review and for leaving the apartment as you found it. It's always a thrill for me to get a good review as it's the way I feel about my pride and joy in Lovely Portugal. As you said sometimes it's the Portuguese peoples' friendliness that keeps us coming back.

We stayed in this apartment for 10 nights and had a great time. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and clean . We loved the private garden ,ideal with our young children . The apartment is close to 2 of the pools ,one of them is the main pool which we used most days. There is also a little shop that sell's essentials close to the apartment. Would defiantly recommend both apartment and complex. Also owner very helpful.

Albufeira holiday 2011

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks at this apartment. The location is great with a nice view over the parc close to the several swimmingpools. The apartment is finished and equipped to high standard with everything you could possibly need. It is clean and spacious. Contact with the owner went mainly via e-mail with prompt reply's and clear information. The park with 4 swimmingpools is well maintained and the restaurants are excellent.

We had a great holiday in a super apartment
