We stayed in this apartment in July 2014, we being my husband and I and our 2 children aged 9 and 11. We had stayed in this complex before but had always rented 2 bedroom apartments. Despite the fact that this is a one bed apartment it suited perfectly as the children immediately laid claim to the 2 sofa beds in the sitting room and we had the bedroom. The fact that it has 2 balconies added hugely to the sense of space and as a result it did not seem any smaller than the 2 bedroom we'd previously rented. We had our breakfast on one balcony every morning and frequently had lunch and/or dinner there too. It was lovely having the second balcony as there was space to hang out wet clothes and still more space to sit and have a drink in the evening.
The apartment itself is well appointed and has all mod cons, including air conditioning which can be vital at certain times of the year! The complex has a lovely pool and tennis courts and happily the apartment owners provided racquets and balls which was a huge bonus. It is situated about 10 minutes walk from the lovely sandy beach, and about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town with its many restaurants The small local shop is about 5 minutes walk away and supplied all provisions we needed at a very reasonable cost.
We had visited Sao Martinho before and had hired a car to do sight seeing in the locality - there's lots to see! This time though we decided to completely relax. We didn't hire a car and were able to organise a lift to and from the airport. We had a very chilled out holiday swimming every day, either in the pool or at the beach (or sometimes both!), playing tennis, and eating.
We had a wonderful holiday and already pondering when we could head back! Would highly recommend this apartment.
