Customer Reviews

Lovely apartment in a great location. Have just returned from an amazing week in apartment B, clean & tidy apartment with everything you need. The pool area and bar was lovely and always able to get a sun bed. The hill is a bit of a killer from the old town but not too bad and views from the balcony are lovely. Would definitely recommend! Danielle M.
FR: Luxe appartement. Van alle gemakken voorzien. Vaatwasser, wasmachine, alles is aanwezig. Voldoende handdoeken en andere benodigdheden. Transfer van en naar vluchthaven was ook via Susan allemaal prima voor elkaar en geregeld. Handig om te weten: Het complex ligt hoog. Er gaat een trap naar beneden (98 treden) en dan ben je midden in het centrum van Albufeira (old Town), maar het is wel even een klimmetje, goed voor de conditie. EN: Luxury apartment. Fully equipped. Dishwasher, washing machine, everything is there. Plenty of towels and other amenities. Transfer from and to airport was also via Susan all fine for each other and settled. Good to know: the complex is high. There is a staircase down (98 steps) and then you are right in the Centre of Albufeira (old Town), but it's a climb, good for the health. Freida Docter
Beautiful apartment, well located and well equipped and good communication with the host.Patrick - May 2017
This is a beautiful clean apartment with everything you need, very spacious lovely big balconies. Only minutes from old town, beach and marina. Also ALDI and LIDL only 5-10 min walk away.pool area lovely and always sun beds available. We had 3 and half year old with us and felt very secure as you needed keys to get in and out of complex, he was only 1 in pool most of the time which was great!! We will definitely be back next year and would highly recommend.Family from Navan, Ireland.
We stayed for two months and enjoyed every day of it. The one-bedroom condo, even though located on the 2nd stairs ....was lovely, modern, bright, fresh and clean (maid service once a week). There are 2 pull-out leather queen and one double. It has 2 balconies, one with a table & 4 chairs, the other larger one had 2 lounge chairs and a small charcoal bbq. The spacious kitchen has an oven and glass top stove, and a washing machine? The condo came with wifi and the tv in the spacious living room was great as it has lots of stations with movies and sports....the bedroom tv had limited stations but had a dvd. There are also 2 heater/air conditioning units. Albufeira is a hilly place.....must be able to walk hills or steps.....but it has a beautiful large sandy beach and lots of quaint cafes/restaurants and with lots of things to see and do. We especially enjoyed the tours that are offered around the Algarve region and also into Spain, Morocco & Gibraltar. The property manager, Susie, was very accommodating and spoke fluent English and Portugese....and I believe other languages. We were there in March & April 2016 and the weather was great...not too hot nor too cold, and very little rain.....I would definitely recommend this area and this particular vacation rental.Anon.
