Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a great stay at this apartment, two balconies, very well equipped with every thing you need from the balcony furniture, living room and the bed room. Located at the end of the corridor so no noise from people walking past, we had a great stay and would recommend this apartment. If you don't like walking down the hill to the town center catch a taxi, very chea. You also have a Lidl and Aldi just around the corner. about 6-8 mins walk. One of the best apartments we have rented and the best pools on this complex. Swim up bar cheap and good quality. Went with wife and 16yr old son, all loved it.

Really nice app with excellent balconies for sunbathing

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at app 315 and would recommend staying there. Only issue was broken blinds but owner had them measured when we were there so should be replaced soon. I personally would go with curtains. Felt safe in this complex and easy access to old town apart from steep stairs but keeps you fit. We will definitely be back

Lovely apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a fabulous stay at the apartment. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed during our stay. They apartment is a short walk from the old town square although the 100 steps can be a nightmare with a pram. This hasn’t put us off though and we we certainly book again when we next visit Portugal.

We stayed in this apartment for five weeks and we were very satisfied with accommodations. Susie and Joanna were helpful along the way and answered all our questions. We had stayed at Cerro Mar Gardens the previous winter and wanted to stay in the same location again This unit was much larger and better equipped than the hotel apartments, The wifi was excelllent and the TV setup had lots of options. Albuferia is a great place to visit and we would definitely rent this again.

Home from home. Excellent facilities in a wonderful complex!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment with all the facilities you could ask for. The 2 balconies meant that you had the sun all day and with the added bonus of sun loungers, it was a great place to have an evening drink watching the sun fade away. It was absolutely spotless. With a 5 min walk to Lidl and Aldi we were able to avail of the fully functioning kitchen. The complex itself with 2 pools and cafe/ pool bar was beautifully Landscaped. There also was the opportunity to use the Hotel Complex across the road and we had breakfast there on a couple of mornings. It's right in the old town with excellent sea views and the square is easily reached through the quaint cobbled lane ways down steps. The customer service was excellent from Susie from start to finish including top tips, answering questions on apartment facilities etc and I would absolutely recommend.

The nearest sandy beach is just a 500 metres stroll, and there are supermarkets, bars, restaurants and shops a few minutes walk away in the centre of Albufeira Old Town.

The big supermarkets, Modelo and Lidl, are a 10 minute drive. Albufeira has an abundance of bars, restaurants and shops. There are many banks and cash withdrawal machines.

There are two big water parks. Slide and Splash about 25 minutes drive, Aqualand is 20 minutes drive, and Zoo Marine for the whole family within 15 minutes drive. The Algarve Shopping Centre is also 15 minutes drive with its great High Street shops and restaurants.

There are some wonderful beaches close by. In addition to the large golden beaches, there are more intimate beaches such as those at Sao Rafael and Castelo. The coastline is spectacular with great views and great walks.

The nearest golf course, Victoria Golf Course, is 7 km from the hotel. Many other courses such as the Balaia Golf course (nine holes), Salgados Golf Club, and Pine Cliffs, Golf and Country Club are a short drive away. Discounted green fees and special packages are available on many courses.
