    I was saddened to read your review, as you are right, there are many superb apartments in this development and for many years, it was in the Top 3 Speciality Lodgings in Albufeira. It is unfortunate that, big agencies have muscled in recently, who are not providing the same standard or service, as expected. There are however, several small companies, renting successfully in Encosta da Orada and guests are well looked after during their stay. If booking directly with an owner, always make sure that they have local management support, not just a cleaner. I heard about several groups of stranded holidaymakers this summer, who had booked through Travel Republic, Garvetur and others, who were left stranded outside the gates with their luggage, in the blazing sun, with no keys or contact and I am very sorry that you were one of them and that your holiday was ruined. Next time you book, perhaps search TripAdvisor and Google for reviews on the company, apartment, or individual, before you decide who to book your holiday with.

    Hi, can you tell me if the penthouse apartment at Ecosta da Orada had 3 bedrooms? If it did, please can you advise the website it was booked on? Thanks
