We’ve stayed here three times now and each time had a fantastic holiday at your lovely apartment. Thank you Santiago.
Spacieux et confortable.
Agréable séjour près de la plage. Appartement propre, sécuritaire et bien équipé. Très belle vue sur le jardin. Grand balcon.
Beautiful, spacious & clean luxury appartment on a superb resort.
We recently stayed in Santiago's appartment. The experience was superb!
He actually saved our vacation, because when we arrived in Portugal, our first accomodation (another one, not via Santiago/HomeAway) was a very big letdown. Within a day we were invited for a tour of the appartment & we were able to move there the same day.
The appartment is bigger and more luxorious than the pictures show. Everything in the appartment is new / as good as new and in perfect condition. 3 Spacious bedrooms, a very large living room (with 60" tv & 2 settopboxes & Harman Kardon wireless speaker), a well equipped kitchen (incl. seperate cooler/fridge & washing/drying machine), two perfectly comfortable bathrooms, a full lenght balcony with epic poolviews.
As for the location; The appartment is located in a prime spot within a luxury resort. Its gated with 24/7 security. The resort is very clean and well maintained. From the resort you can walk directly to either the beach or the sanddunes/nature. There is also a supermarket and a snackbar nearby. Right next to the resort there are several restaurants also, but we didnt try those.
To sum it up; a beautiful, spacious & clean luxury appartment on a superb resort.
Lovely apartment, excellent position
We have stayed in the Galé area many times but this was the first time in Salgados.
The apartment is excellent, all the bedrooms are reasonably sized and the beds are comfortable. The showers in both bathrooms are over the bath tap top showers but they are very good and there is plenty of hot water to run both at the same time.
The kitchen is well appointed and easy to use, albeit not the largest we’ve seen.
The lounge diner is very large and the option of the TV with various country’s channels available on an enormous screen lets you keep up with news or your favourite programmes.
The real gem of this apartment is the balcony terrace which runs the whole length. It is South facing and enjoys sunshine for most of the day and has deckchairs, a low table and chairs, ideal for reading a book with a handily placed drink of something cool, and a higher table and chairs suitable to eat at.
The view across the pools is lovely and the security on site helpful and unobtrusive. The underground car park for the apartment means the car stays in the shade so is always comfortable to use.
Salgados is 5 minutes from Zoomarine, Algarve Shopping and Albufeira old town or Armacao de Pera by car and has easy walking access to the Praia Grande and, if you’re inclined, a beachhead and beach walk all the way round to Albufeira Marina.
Santiago was very helpful from the moment we booked and checked, via email, that everything was going well twice during our fortnight there and made it plain that nothing would be any trouble. Whilst we didn’t actually need anything it is nice to know that your holiday is important to him.
We would highly recommend this apartment and fully expect to return in the future.
Superb apartment, excellent outlook over resort pools and well maintained gardens
Apartment is in a gated community which is very well maintained. The apartment was superb, large living area and good sized bedrooms. All furnished to a high standard. There was always a friendly and speedy response from the owner, Santiago, to any queries. The resort was very quiet, as expected in January, and many of the local restaurants were closed. There is a good Supermarket 10 minutes walk from the apartment but to travel further afield use of a car or taxi is needed. Armacao de Pera is a nice 45 minute walk along the beach.
Really good apartment in all respects
Herdade dos Salgados – Vila das Lagoas
Herdade dos Salgados - Vila das Lagoas, is a tourism and complex/resort of unbeatable quality that offers a wide range of facilities for health, leisure, sports, business and culture.
It is nestled among the dunes and woods, in with its natural surroundings of the golf course, Salgados Beach and Salgados Lagoon, which extends over 7 km of the coastline, that are part of the scenic National Ecological Reserve.
The complex's contemporary architecture blends in well with the landscape, preserving the natural scenery with a low construction volume and a profoundly organic design adapted to the landscape, spanning an area of 200 hectares and making Herdade dos Salgados a truly unique place.
The complex is ideal for holidaymakers seeking peace and tranquility. However, the surrounding area offers much to do and places to explore:

Old town Albufeira is just a short ride away. Here there is a mixture of the historic and traditional flavour of the Algarve with cobbled streets and picturesque leafy town squares, plus a superb variety of restaurants, bars and shops. The Old Town is a very safe family orientated area with free entertainment available nightly at many bars in the summer season. In the summer month evenings the promenade also hosts many craft stalls where you can shop for souvenirs whilst enjoying the warm Algarvian sea breeze.
There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area most serving fabulous locally caught fish and of course Chicken Piri Piri!
Even closer is Armação de Pera a typically Portuguese fishing town. Part of Armação de Pera beach remains known as 'Fisherman's beach'. Here you can see brightly coloured boats sitting on the sand with local fishermen tending their nets.
