Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fantastic place & location, so well equipped and situated.

Great being so close to the beach, restaurants & shops, especially with a two year old in tow.

We've had a wonderfully relaxed holiday & highly recommend staying in this apartment. A very special experience.

Thank you

Great location , spacious, clean tidy , perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

The pick up from airport was easy and on time and the accommodation was charming . It had been decorated nicely with lots of references to 2 Fish . It wa helpful having several sets of keys and key safe . In the middle of Old Town was a great location , barely 5 mins to beach , we were able to pop down at any time. The functionality of the accommodation was great , it was well supplied with all utensils , shower towels etc . Mild late night noise from the local bars but it was to be expected a little due to location . However it was perfect for our two families as the kids could come and go as they pleased. The air con unit did struggle in the heat but again it was extremely hot at times and I wonder that it was a little overwhelmed . The bedrooms stayed cool and all had fans . The bathrooms were lovely and showers great and powerful. When we had an issue with hot water it was sorted immediately. Everyone was very friendly and helpful as we have always found with the Portuguese. Would highly recommend this apartment and hosts and are likely to consider it again in near future. We very much like Albufeira and found it more family oriented in July than April on a previous visit where there were a couple more stag do’s. Thanks very much Jane and John !

Fantastic location and property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 teenage sons, husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. The location is the first reason to book this apartment. Everything you need is within walking distance (market place, restaurants, bars, beach). The balcony is fabulous for watching the world go by and the property is fantastic. The rooms are spacious and clean. Truly a relaxing vacation.

This is a fabulous apartment right in the centre of Old Town & so close to the beach. The apartment was spotlessly clean, really well equipped & it was nice sitting on the balcony in the evening sun with a glass of bubbly after a strenuous day on the beach!! The only reason I have given it 4 & not 5 stars is it can be noisy in the early hours due to it being close to the taxi rank although this would definitely not put us off returning. Jane organised the transfers too & from the airport & you’re dropped off & picked up right at the door. An excellent spot & would highly recommend

Would certainly recommend this property, a fabulous location just seconds from the beach and a perfect location within the old town. Not suitable for guests who struggle with stairs but was perfect for us 5 girls. Would certainly stay here again.

Truly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

There is so much I could write about - it was met and surpassed all my expectations of Ilbufeira and surrounding areas. Our excursions will leave so many great memories. This apartment in Old Town was the perfect location - you could walk to all shops and restaurants. The only hold back for those who have trouble doing stairs, there were three floors, but we four senior ladies had no problem. It as very clean, well equipped and comfortable beds. It was well decorated (we are all critical in all aspects of hotels, apartments) but rest assure, no one could complain. Jane was so patient with me and answered all my questions before arriving and everything she suggested worked out to perfection. I am compelled to highly recommend May, our driver who put up with all our questions. Once he picked us up at the airport (Jane’s recommendation). We were so comfortable with his driving and professionalism, we hired him for all our tours and actually booked him to travel to Spain for our second week. He always had so many surprises with his off the road (markets, countryside treasures) while taking us to where we wanted to visit. I would highly recommend him and brought back his family business cards for friends travelling to Ilbufeira. Very Great family man and makes travelling so much easier. His famous last words “this is your vacation - no worries and take your time”.

Thanks Jane and May

Owner's Response: We have had much 'hotter' weather this October, so sorry you felt it too hot to sit out. As it is the end of the season of course all showers will be looked at , if you had let us know while staying we would have popped down no problem. As it is an apartment and you go up stairs to it yes there are stairs, we actually where very pleased that 'two fish plaice' was up a level when the flooding of 'old town' Alburferia happened two years ago! The water came up to above the letter box! Thank you for your comments we continue to improve year by year with your help and feedback!

Nearby you will find a super market,wine merchant,restaurants and bars and a taxi rank.

Below the apartment is an ice crem parlour! Next best thing to an Indian Resturant we think!

You will not be disappointed when you enjoy your first glass of wine or beer on the balcony terrace taking in the buzz of life below you.

If you have never been to Albufeira Old Town before, you will be amazed by the number of bars and restaurants, the quality of the entertainment, live bands and hospitality shown by the local Portugease.

The smell of piri piri chicken will fill your heart with glee.

We can now recommend this apartment for not only those wishing to party...but also families!

From one side of the balcony terrace you can enjoy a unique view of an unused brick built chimney which was part of

a former fish processing plant, the chimney is now a protected feature of the Old Town and homes a pair of storks which you may be lucky enough to see in the breeding season.

This amazing apartment has been LOVINGLY RESTORED & MODERNISED to provide first class accommodation for eight lucky guests.
