Best apartment we have stayed at Parque Corcovada

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this complex for the last 6 years, first time with Algarve Getaways and when we are ready to book for next year (November) we certainly will be in touch with the Getaways team, We found the staff very helpful and needed a couple of minor things sorted and I must say a special thanks to Julia & Darren, Irene also was very helpful when we booked. The complex is suitable for all ages and is not far from all the shops and restaurants.The apartment was well maintained and very clean. If you read this then please get in touch with Algarve Getaways and they will ensure you have an amazing holiday. Regards, Kevin & Pauline Pierce, Mandy & Keith Newman.

Good Quality Apartment,in a decent complex.

  • 4 of 5

Property was as described by Algarve Getaways, and we also found the staff that we dealt with very helpful and extremely friendly.

This apartment is in a good location within a 5/10 mins walk to all sorts of eateries/bars and everything else that you need on holidays, apartment was spotless and had all the mod-cons and comforts for a great stay.

The only few negatives that I feel I must mention in order for future customers to be aware of when choosing an apartment in Corcovada are' 1st ,This apartment is possibly one of the furthest away from the pool area, so make sure that you bring all you need with you when leaving the apartment and heading down to the pool as it's a good 400/500 meters away, and with 3 flights of stairs to climb it can take at least 10 mins , 2nd , There is a serious shortage of sunbeds at the pool area, and all the other families that we spoke with also complained about this, even when we got up early and headed down for a swim at 8 am we were lucky if we found 1 that did not have a towel already placed out since early (something needs to be done to sort this problem out).

The lift was out of order a couple of days on different occasions on our 10 day stay (,and as I mentioned you are on the third floor).

But I would recommend this property and would like to think we will be back at some stage in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments about this fabulous penthouse apartment and the services you received from Algarve Getaways. I was flabbergasted to read your comments about the distance of the apartment to the swimming pool, so I sent a member of our Team to measure it! From the block door (near the lift and stairs) leading out to the garden and swimming pool, it is 135 meters. We tell our guests that it is a 2 minute walk and stand by that. It is certainly not 400 – 500 meters, as you have stated. I can only imagine that you exited the apartment block and went off to use someone else’s swimming pool! Nowhere in Parque da Corcovada, would it take you 10 minutes to use any of the facilities! Anyone who has stayed there, knows this, as there are 5 swimming pools, for every 2 - 3 blocks. I am sorry that the lift was out of order during your stay. This was unforeseen and quickly rectified. Going down the stairs would not have added 7 – 8 minutes to your journey. Parque da Corcovada is one of the most popular developments in Albufeira, due to its excellent location and high standard of apartments. It does have a problem with sunbeds, in July and August and so there is a security guard around the pool area, much of the time, to ensure that sunbeds are fairly used and not always booked up. We do have other apartments in Albufeira, which have their own sunbeds. Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways

Another fantastic stay at Corcovada.

  • 5 of 5

This was a repeat booking at Parque da Corcovada which speaks for itself. The apartment is tastefully furnished and extremely well equipped. What look like brand new and definitely very efficient aircon units with individual remotes in the lounge and both bedrooms. Due to the location within the complex it is very quiet in this apartment, almost no noise at all.

The service from Algarve Getaways was faultless as usual from start to finish. We organised our transfers through them, they were competitively priced, courteous and prompt as usual.

I would have no hesitation recommending either these apartments or Algarve Getaways to anybody. In fact I already have. I was talking to a couple on the plane home and gave them the website details

Brilliant Holiday in Parque Da Corcovada!

  • 5 of 5

Met by Howard at our beautiful apartment. He gave us all the ins and outs of the apartment which was very spacious, clean and a great kitchen. The veranda was really big and I enjoyed eating my breakfast out there every morning. Howard also gave us a map and directions to the beach, shops, supermarkets, water parks and a great Karaoke bar (which we loved, but not sure if our teenagers fully appreciated my vocal range!) Apartment in great area - close to Strip, but far away to enjoy peacful afternoons. Pool great size and very clean. We loved the Old Town - lots of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Booked coach and ticket to Slide and Splash - great day out. We took a picnic and drinks and bought snacks and ice cream there (not as expensive as you would imagine). This was our first time in Portugal, first time booking an apartment independently and can't recommend the whole team at Algarve Getaways highly enough! Barbara was so helpful when I booked (she knew the area really well) and the team in Portugal were on hand if you needed anything (we didn't).

Great. great apartment, location and weather!

absolutely brilliant

  • 5 of 5

our holiday was amazing made all the more so because of the fantastic apartment. It was more luxurious than our own home and the 2 children (4 & 2) loved it. It was spacious and comfortable with all the mod cons and the childrens pool was perfect for our little one, we were able to relax while keeping a close eye on him. The balcony was brilliant as we were able to eat our breakfast & dinner outside without being roasted and the kids loved the size of it, I was worried because we were on the top floor but it was completely enclosed so we had no worries with them running in and out. The balcony off the main bedroom was brilliant for a wee evening drink in the sun!!

The apartment was spotless and was really well situated, within walking distince from the strip, and we took the wee "train" to the old town which was our favourite spot with a fantastic beach and great restaurants. The children loved it, especially the puppet show in the square. There was also a great supermarket about 5 mins from the apartment which wasn't too far to carry the water or for the lollies to melt!!!

I would recommend this property to anyone, a beautiful apartment for a family or just for friends to get away for a relaxing break, it can be as lively as you make it, definately a home away from home, we loved it and will be back (hopefully very soon!!)

Perfect holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spacious apartment with tasteful, contemporary decor.

Everything was very good quality and it was spotlessly clean throughout. The balcony, complete with loungers was a lovely cool spot to relax out of the heat of the sun.

The pool was lovely with a nice grassy area where you could sit too.

The owner's customer service was good- we had flights arranged for us to and from the airport.

The apartment was well situated for the 'strip', eating places and the beach - all within walking distance.

Eating places were easy to find, witha good selection of reasonably priced, good quality eateries.

I would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend, in fact, have done so.

We had a great week's holiday. Went to a nearby water park, went into the old town of Albufeira and went to a large shopping centre complete with cinema complex, by bus. We also had a couple of relaxing nights in the apartment watching some of the dvds provided.

I don't think you could fault this as a place to stay.
