Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just spent 10 days here at Eric's flat and I can honestly say we've had an amazing time!

Before we travelled I contacted Jane and John on a couple of occasions and they couldn't have been more helpful- very prompt too!!

The apartment is just perfect, it has everything you need and has a lovely homely feel.

The complex is great, the pool is ideal for the kids. There are plenty of sun loungers and lifeguards are helpful too.

The Restruant on complex is amazing, lovely food, helpful staff and funny too!

We hope to come back to Eric's flat soon! Thank you jane and john.

Perfect! Awesome facilities in the apartment and complex

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is spotless and well equipped, especially compared to most package holiday apartments (having a washing machine with small children was amazing!).Fantastic array of pools, including a heated pool for those occasional cloudy days all of which were kept very clean. Sunbeds were in good order and new parasols were being installed whilst we were there. The complex owners really do care about their facilities, evidenced through the painting of buildings and the upkeep of the plants.

Great to have a BBQ which we used on the balcony.

Great communication from the owners, reception staff on the complex were very helpful.

Visible security presence, although no reason to believe it is required it is comforting to know you are being looked after.

Shop on site has all the essentials, another shop is situated across the main road from the complex and is stocked for campers so more to choose from. DONT get caught out buying a lilo as they are not allowed in the pools :-(

Walked to Lidl/Continente (20 mins & 30 mins respectively) and caught a taxi back a couple of times. The complex provides a shuttle bus (Mon-Fri 10:00 & 17:00) which takes you to the top of the Old Town( I am sure they would bring you back if you were there around 17:00).

Albufeira has become more developed with karaoke bars in the old town square etc.

Overall extremely happy with the apartment and would look to stay here again.

Thanks Eric :-)

Myself and my best friend stayed here for 11nights and can't thank Jane and John for all there help along the way if any questions they was always on hand to answer.

Eric's flat itself was very spacious with a living room/dining area, amazing kitchen with all the utensils you could need if you wished to cook!

Master bedroom was lovely with a humongous bed!!! Bathroom was lovely and also fitted with a heated towel rail!

The complex itself has 4 swimming pools with one being a heated one which is nice if the other pools are a little bit chilly for you!

The Old Town is only down the road which has some lovely bars, clubs and restaurants. You can also get to the beach from the Old Town which also has some bars and restaurants on the seafront which has a lovely vibe! The New Town is up the road from the Old Town which is also very lovely which has lots of shopping, bars, restaurants.

I highly recommend 'slide & splash' which the staff were more then happy to assist us with. We honestly had a blast here such a fun day. Also would recommend for family's.

Over all Albuferia is just a lovely, friendly and amazing place and we can't wait to come back next year

Perfect week away

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 friends stayed in Eric's flat and had the best time! It's situated perfectly near anything you could need. The food in the complex was lovely and the staff at reception were only too happy to help us book a trip to "slide and splash" which is definitely a must! John and Jane were on hand to help with any questions we had and made the overall holiday a lot more relaxing! Thank you both for a lovely holiday! We will be returning hopefully soon!

Fabulous Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Booking Eric's Flat was really easy and stress free. John and Jane were fabulous in ensuring the flat was ready for our arrival right down to arranging taxi transfers. The apartment was more than we needed, very clean, homely, welcoming and equipped with all necessary appliances.

The complex offers so much you feel right at home and the staff were more than helpful and very friendly. We got to see some lovely parts of Albufeira during daily walks around the town, along the beach and even in to the back streets and supermarkets and met lovely people along the way.

Having a honeymoon was so important to us, to get away and relax and get some quiet time after such a busy time running up to our wedding day. This trip just put the "icing on the cake" and topped off our whole wedding experience.

Thank you John and Jane for allowing us to stay in such a wonderful apartment and for all your help with the arrangements.

We would highly recommend Eric's Flat as a fabulous place to stay. We will certainly be returning in the near future and get to see more of the lovely beaches, friendly people and to some more quite time.

Overall, this apartment, complex, location has exactly what is stated in the "Eric's Flat" description. 10/10
