Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Paul was fantastic help and gave us all the neccessary information plus loads more. Transfer arrranged for us was great and drivers were lovely and friendly. The apartment was absolutely perfect i couldnt of asked for better and was well worth the money. The area the apartment was located was lovely and quiet and only 5 mins from the main stripe which was good. We went on the train to the old town (i do not recommend) cost 4euros pp for a return and a taxi costs the same which is probably safer. Was a really enjoyable holiday and would defintaley recommend the apartment to anyone i know. I would mention though that there is quite abit of walking involved and some steep hills which some people may struggle with, but o stayed in our apartment by the pool and it was fantastic.

Excellent location, very spacious appartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything you need. It has two good size bedrooms, lovely living room and modern Kitchen. Both bathrooms are of a good size. The large balcony overlooks the pool area which is well looked after including the gardens. There was always a sun bed available no matter what time you went down.

Paul was very helpful throughout and delivered everything he promised.

The apartments have a good location 12 min walk to the strip, or a 20 min walk to the nearest beach. There are good bars, resteraunts within ten mins if you prefer to stay away from the strip or you can get a bus into the old town for 1.3 Euro. The bus stop is 5 mins away from the apartment.

I would definitely return, we stayed for ten nights in June.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very large, beautifully clean well maintained on a nice clean quiet complex. Nice pool with room for everyone, enough loungers to go round but could do with a few more parasols. Thre's a couple of small supermarkets close by and a few bars as well. The 'Strip' is about a 10 minute walk away, the Old town is somewhat further. [we did both on alternate nights] Cab fare back from Old town was usually about 6 euros.The main road outside the complex can get a little busy, but it's a very small price to pay for such a great holiday base. We'd definately recommend this apartment to family and friends.

A great apartment - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, tastefully and neutrally furnished and decorated and finished to a high spec. Solid furniture - nothing flimsy!

We slept so well here due to the black-out shutters!

The apartment is spacious - I would just say that whilst there is plenty of living space - with a very large kitchen, and roomy hall and bathroom, plus a large main bedroom - it would not suit two couples sharing as the second couple would presumably want to sleep on the sofa bed in the living area rather than in the second bedroom (which has a single bed with pull out truckle bed). For a family sharing that would not be an issue. For the two of us alone, there was a lot of space, and that was lovely.

There are 3 balconies which adds to the airiness of the place.

The grounds are realy well kept and clean. There are several pools within the development - apparently this block has less people per pool than the other blocks - but in April it was very quiet anyway!

Location wise, it was ideal for us. We could walk along to The Strip within about 5 minutes (although the better restaurants are actually closer to hand) and to the beach at Praia d'Oura within about 15 minutes. That beach is lovely, and with great beachside cafes and restaurants, serving excellent food, keenly priced (much better than than the restaurants along The Strip).

Albufeira and its main beach is about a 20 minutes walk, but there is a town "train" type bus which picks up from The Strip and goes to Albufeira and back - a one day pass costs 4 euros.

The on site cafe/restaurant, Roberto's - is well worth a stop. The owner is a South African chap who is really helpful and makes the most amazing pizza!

There is a tour company office, Sugar Travel, at the front block and we arranged a couple of tours through them - this was effortless - we were picked up from the development and dropped back there afterwards. Cannot recommend enough the historic Algarve trip (Silves/Monchique/Sagres/Cape St Vincent/Lagos) and also the catamaran trip along the coast with barbecue on the beach and a dinghy trip around the grottoes. The cost was about 35 euros each - with discounts for cash.

The owner, Paul, was really helpful. We were really impressed with the airport transfers, which were included in the price, and the pre-trip information.

We will recommend to everyone looking to travel to this area, and will return ourselves.

Thank you, Paul!

Albufeira, Portugal's most popular resort, has been described as the “Tourist Capital” of the Algarve, spreading from the old town both east and west along the coast, its sandy coves and golden beaches drawing an assorted crowd, from families with young kids to retired couples. Everyone finds something to enjoy in this sprawling, low-rise holiday Mecca, which retains its old world charm in narrow alleyways behind the new hip and happening, Rue Candido dos Reis (the bar street) which at night is a must. The “Strip”, as it is referred to locally, in the east of the town, runs from the Montechoro Hotel down to the Praia da Oura, lined with dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars. In contrast, the old town of Albufeira has a special charm all of its own, with its sleepy cobbled side streets and alleyways that criss cross the town, many of them converging in the main square which at night comes alive with the throng of people, music, lights, sounds and aromas of the many restaurants and bars.
