“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment in September 2014. It was excellent. Two good sized bedrooms, a third single bedroom, a bathroom with a bath and a fully equipped kitchen. The apartment has a balcony that overlooks the pools. There is a large pool and two children's pools which our children thoroughly enjoyed. There is also a small park. There is a supermarket, with a bakery, about 5 minutes walk from the accommodation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation to family/ friends.

“great appartment and location”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the moment I booked with Shirley I knew I had made the right decision. Her quick responses and information she provided made you realise you were dealing with an owner who had pride in her apartment.

The apartment is spacious and was cleaned to the highest standards. All the facilities were great and my 12 year old son was able to make friends in this safe gated complex. Liga and Darren the management company reps were great to deal with - and I must mention the beds which were really comfy and ensured a good nights sleep.

The location as mentioned by others is ideal for both the old and new town - and our favourite restaurant was palacete - by tres Palms which did beautiful Portuguese fish and steaks .

Would definitely recommend this apartment and owner if considering a peaceful Algarve location.
