                        I spent 6 weeks in Portugal and found the beaches very diverse and beautiful. Make the effort to see the beach in the picture. It is called Praia Sao Rafael. It is actually located about 5 km away but worth the effort. There are several nearby beaches to choose from that are within easy walking distance.The apartment itself is in a handy location within walking distance to everything.and appointed well enough to service your needs for a few days. Having a private car space was a real bonus and the wifi was fast. Without doubt the best way to find your way there is to use gps or if you don't have that use Google maps to get directions as it is located,above a shopping strip, as many places are.

                        Our family of 4 (kids aged 9 & 7) stayed in Margarida's apartment for 9 days during the May half term break. We were put in contact with the property agent, Tina who made arrangements for a van to pick us up from the airport and deliver us to the apartment. Our taxi driver was lovely! It took us about 25 min to get to Albufeira, and Tina met us at the building. She was very kind and gave us a nice over view of the apartment and surrounding area. The location of the apartment is absolutely ideal! The building is located at the end of one of the main streets leading into old town and down to the beach. All manner of restaurants and shops are minutes away and the beach is only a 5-7 minute walk. The old town can get quite busy and has a bustling night life, but we were just far enough away that we were not bothered by late night noise. The apartment itself is rather basic, but it had everything we needed. The selling point is really the location. It can't be beat! Working with Margarida & Tina was easy and pleasant. A good experience all around. We highly recommend and would stay there again in a heart beat!

                        The apartment is in a great location, short walk to the old town and to the beach. Also a convenient location for groceries, restaurants and the old bus depot location for tours, taxis and shuttles. The suite is clean and tidy. The washing machine works well, there is No Dryer. The gas range is a bit of a challenge to operate and to regulate the heat. The pots and pans were quite a disappointment, as the soup pot is an old and pitted aluminum pot...other pots and fry pans are badly scratched Teflon coated pans. I enjoyed my stay in Albufeira.

                        Owner response: Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Old pots and pans will be replaced immediately. Sincerely, Property Owner

                        We just got back from a three weeks stay in Abulfeira. The location of the condo is just great. All you need is just around you. The apartment is clean and well maintained. The furniture are modest but functional. The kitchen is well equipped compared to other kitchens we had in other properties. you can buy your tours tickets right across the street. The bus shop and bus stops are less than 100m away. Under the apartment there is a fabulous café/bakery where you can buy your croissant and fresh bred everyday. The Ali grocery store is also very close. Sincerely, everything is around you, from shops to restaurants to bars, cafés, you name it. Tina, the local agent is super great. She takes her job at heart and she ensures that you have everything you need. We recommend this condo for sure. Also Margarida the owner is great and quite helpful. The airport transfer, Romano, was also punctual and very friendly and helpful. Norman Ottawa, Canada

                        We stayed at this property for one month (Feb 2013). The apartment was well appointed, clean, and an excellent size. The biggest plus for this apartment is its location. It is close to everything (day tours, old town square, restaurants, shopping, rental cars - simply anything you can think of). Tina, the contact person at the apartment was very helpful, and pleasant to deal with. She also arranged transport from the Faro Airport. Cost of 70 euros return. We were pleased with the apartment and would recommend it for any stay. We found Albufeira and its people very pleasant, although in Feb it was indeed chilly in the night. We particularly enjoyed the closeness of the apartment to the ocean ; a short walk. Although we were out of season for the large crowds and many tourists, day tours which are arranged across the street from the apartment with pick up steps from the same location, were plentiful and a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend the trip to Seville.

                        Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids - ages 3 and 5) stayed at this apartment for 6 nights the beginning of June. The photos and the description are completely accurate for what you'll get with this great little apartment. The location is fantastic - right in the middle of old town (but still a quiet apartment building), close to the beach, and easily accessible parking. We had a rented car for the week so we could do a couple day trips out of the area, which helped make the trip more interesting for the kids (since they can burn out on the beach 6 days in a row!). The apartment was clean and roomy for 4 of us - we were very comfortable there. The kitchen/bathroom was adequately stocked, though I was surprised to see no dishwashing soap or toilet paper as part of the amenities. We had breakfast and a couple dinners in the apartment; we ate the rest of the meals in restaurants. The burners on the stove weren't adjustable, but we made do. The oven worked great, as did the microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and washing machine. The layout of the building was interesting, providing a lot of options. The apartment is located on the 6th floor. You can exit out the back of the building on the 4th floor (for most direct access to Tunel Beach 1/4 mile away). The parking garage is on the 2nd floor. Finally, you can exit out the front of the building on the ground floor (the closest location to shops and restaurants). The elevator provides easy step free access to all of it. An agent met us when we first got there to provide us keys and a quick overview of the place. She was very kind and quick to replace a burned out lightbulb in the bathroom. It is a bit tricky to find the first time - Google maps led us astray. And the parking garage is a tight circle of spirals to drive through. We were very happy here and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation in Albufeira, Portugal!

                        Had a wonderful vacation last two weeks of May. The apartment was perfect for our family. Spotless and roomy. The location couldn't be better. Walk to everything including a short walk to the beach and ton's of restaurants. I would highly recommend this apartment as it has all the conveniences (including a washing machine) and it couldn't be in a better spot. I would highly recommend a vacation in beautiful Portugal, and I would rent this apartment again without any hesitation. We rented a car with a GPS which I would highly recommend as there are many beautiful, interesting towns within 40 min's to 1 hours drive. The 1 hour boat tour in Lagos to see the caves is just gorgeous.

                        Dear Margarida......Like they say..........location location location.......what a perfect apartment in the perfect spot in Albufiera. The pictures don't really do it justice , we found it much larger than we thought and the bonus underground parking was great. Every amenity was considered and Tina was just great (even though we got lost and kept her waiting) Tina hoped you liked the wine. Albufiera is one of the best spots we have visited anywhere in the world. Like the apartment the town is clean and bright and the beach was perfect. Food............don't get me started...............lol. It was really the perfect place to spend my 60th birthday. Thanks again and we will not only recomend your place but we will be back.
