one of the best holidays we've had

  • 5 of 5

ideal situation, facing the pool, and near the reception. the apartment was clean and spacious. we would come back again.and again. excellent apartment for two couples as it has main bathroom and en-suite, so plenty of room for everyone. only complaint which is nt really complaint, beter lighting in the twinroom and a dressing table and long mirror, everything else is just great.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from our holiday staying at this villa.

It had everything we needed, was very comfortable and clean.

Well located close to pool and reception area. Pool was well managed and monitored. The food and service at poolside restaurant were both excellent.

Recommend staying here and the children (ages 12 and 16) want to go back also.

Boa localização e zona da piscina excelente

  • 4 of 5

A casa estava bem localizada (a 2 min de carro do centro de Albufeira) tem varanda para a zona da piscina era ótima, com espaço amplo e relva. Está inserida num aldeamento turístico.

O quarto de casal é bom e com WC, o outro quarto é mais pequeno e tem 2 camas de solteiro. Tem estacionamento em frente à casa.

A nível de limpeza, poderia ser melhor, principalmente a cozinha.

A Sr.a Helen foi bastante simpática.

Amazing property in fantastic resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this property; it was exactly as described, bright, airy and clean! It ticked all the boxes and more for 11 night stay for family of 3 adults and 2 children aged 5yrs and 3yrs. My mother in her 70's was particularly pleased with the location of the property as there are a number of units that require a lot of walking! The location was perfect, 1 min to the pool, 5 min walk to the onsite shop which was v well stocked and v reasonably priced. Helen offered to buy a welcome pack as our flight was late arrival which was greatly received for €20. We had a small problem with the fridge which was replaced immediately by Helen; she could not do enough for us!! The accommodation was as described, large bedroom and twin room, and we alternated with sofa bed - also v comfortable, the kitchen is a home away from home with everything you can think of and more! Tons of DVD's to watch at night if you want, and games too. The resort itself had a very relaxed vibe about it, 4 beautiful pools; we spent most of the time at the one nearest the apt, but visited them all. Resort was busy but not crowded at any stage. We visited fab beach at Gale €30 return, night trips included Albufeira Old Town €4.70 one way at night, The Strip in Montechoro/New Town €7-8 one way and Villamoura which was about €60 return in taxi. Reception were helpful but not overly friendly. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and cannot wait to go back to this property - would be hard to beat it!!

Late Booking was not dissappointed

  • 5 of 5

This was a really last minite booking (5 days) for two couples it is everything the owner describes. Close to all amenities and old town which is in walking distance. We were met by the owner who showed us around and left us with emergency numbers but not needed.

The on site resturants were excellent and on pair with food prices in town.

There is a wonderfull Indian Resturant just off the main square where you can eat on the roof and was one of the best curries I have had, just before you get to the indian is a carnivors delight on the left hand side, when my mate and I ordered the mixed grill I thought the first platter he bought out was for two, wrong another appeared whow that was platter of meat.

The apartment overlooks the pool and close to reception, on an evening if you want to go into town you just ask them to call you a taxi (40cents) and are given a number in case there is any confusion, the start rate is 3.90 euros and such a short distance does not go above this price.

We all loved this area and the weather was fantastic, the small mini mart sold the majorty of things you required but if needed a bigger shop Lidles is not to far away.

This for the four of us was a relaxing and chill out time which it proved to be.

The apartment is well kitted out with a DVD and CD players and some great games, all in all we are really looking forward to our next stay there.

Our transfer from the airport was with best transfer £60 return for 4 people so really you do not need a car.

This was our 2nd time in Clube Albufeira and cannot rate it high enough. For us there is everything you need for a lazy, relaxing holiday and fantastic swimming pools to keep the kids occupied. This was the first time at this apartment, which we specifically picked for its position by the pool and restaurant. The property has a really high spec, was well maintained and clean. From the balcony you can see the pool, but it is not noisy and you have privacy and shade from a large tree. We have already booked again for next year!
