To start I'll mention the only minus I could notice which for me is the existence of the golf course in the vicinity, and just because I personally find them a waste of land and water... but if that doesn't disturb you, then you're in for a real treat!
You will be located in a privileged spot of the Algarve coast with easy access to all the surroundings. You're accommodations will be spacious and absolutely spotless. The apartment and the whole complex is super charming, the pools are paradisiacal (you'll likely to have one for you alone!), the long beach is fabulously adorned with a very romantic sunset, the restaurant on the dunes serves deliciously fresh sea food and fish (possibly aphrodisiac!), located in the vicinity of a wild life reserve where beautiful marine birds can be watched, with a serene, harmonious and warm atmosphere to it... every other extra you might need within reach, including the exciting night live at Albufeira, groceries around the corner and a shopping mall a few minutes down the road... what more can you ask for...?
We will never ever forget our vacation at this absolutely lovely place! After several years of trying, all we needed was a week vacation here to "produce" our first son! :) (disclaimer: I cannot guarantee this will work for every couple, but I can guarantee you'll be in the mood to try hard!)
I most vividly and unhesitatingly recommend this apartment for your next vacation in Algarve! Oh yes, the owners are the sweetest most uncomplicated couple!
We stayed for a week and loved it! The areas were wide, including a spacious living room and a great balcony with a view to the pools, were we stayed every afternoon to drink a beer while watching the beautiful Algarve sunset.
It is well maintained and the cleaning service is effective. The property is a closed set of apartments with security and restricted access, so it felt very safe.
Our favorite spot were the 6 round swimming pools surrounded by well cared green areas. We spent most afternoons there.
The beach is 10 min walking distance and it is wide, clean and well kept. There is a cool beach restaurant famous for fresh fish dishes. Since parking outside the property is rather insufficient, we always walked the small distance.
There was a mini-market 100m away where we bought our groceries, fresh bread, newspaper and basic stuff for a regular everyday price.
The golf course is just across the road and we went there for bird watching (there is a lagoon full of local water living birds).
Overall we were very pleased with the place.
