Great location. Little old fashioned. Apartment smelled of damp though very clean.

  • 3 of 5

Lovely owner. Apartment NEVER got direct sunshine. Biggest problem was there was only one hand and bath towel each which meant they had to be washed everyday. Also NO beach towels. Towels were listed as available so this was misleading.

Outside areas are lovely and we'll maintained. Pool area was really pretty.

Owner's Response: Dear Dorothy The apartment is exactly the photos (little old fashioned?). No damp on it – it is a second floor apartment and the building was painting last October. The kitchen´s window and the balcony has direct sunshine almost all day – you were unlucky with the weather – it rains and clouds all the days you were here. Yes, one hand and bath towel (large one) for each person that can be change middle of the week, by request. We never inform to provide beach towels! All the best M&M

Very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a very enjoyable week staying at this apartment. Vila da praia is a very well maintained gated complex with a lovely swimming pool. The apartment has good views looking out to sea and is well equipped. It had everything we needed for our stay, plus there are shops and bars just outside the front gate. The beach and town centre are about 5 mins walk away. Maria and Miguel were helpful, and easy to contact if we had had any problems, we hope to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Bom dia Refere-se às cambalhotas, onde ficaram as suas filhas? Experimentou o sofá cama? Para 4 pessoas e uma estadia de 1 semana é melhor optarem pelo T2 onde temos 2 quartos e camas para todos. Cumprs, M&M
