A very nice apartment in a lovely complex.
The apartment is in a lovely complex where we have stayed in the past.
It was clean and well equipped and well looked after, as this is a round floor apartment it has a garden to enjoy again well looked after.
There is a small communal pool that's heated ( the Samsung fob with the keys gets you in ).
The owner is really nice and kept in contact at all times.
Look forward to staying again.
Great Apartment in a Great Location
Nigel & Rosie have a great comfotprtable apartment with excellent furnishings and everything you need to enjoy a good holiday. The property is very clean and well maintained. Security is fantastic and very reassuring. Secure underground parking if required. The recently reconstructed garden and terrace enjoys the sun for the whole of the afternoon and is ideal if you just want to chill. There is also access to a heated Indoor Swimming Pool and Games Room on the complex. Guia is a great central location with a number of good quality restaurants and cafés. Guia Football Club is great for a light lunch or an evening meal. The N125 and the Motorway are within easy reach for visits to resorts along The Algarve and Zoo Marine is a short journey and a good day out. For the shopper, the Algarve Shopping Complex is within easy reach and if you are feeling energetic it is within walking distance.I would definitely recommend this apartment and will be booking again in the future.
Lovely apartment with a very large BUT ...
Overall we had a lovely stay. Apartment is clean and nicely decorated. We arrived at 12:30am and desperate for a cup of tea, sadly welcome pack did not include €0.60 container of milk so couldn’t have one.
The owner never mentioned the garden under the patio was being redone and we were interrupted during what we very much needed a restful holiday, once whilst all four of us were laid on loungers so builders could bring rocks etc and do work. We ended up just going inside.
I do feel I am being exceptionally kind giving four stars to our experience as what occurred on the last day is totally unacceptable.
The design is such that when people enter the complex they can see the patio area, both cleaners were arriving and looked directly at me loaded down with recycling and garbage leaving the garden area of the flat to dispose of items. It didn’t stop them and they proceeded to go to the front door and ring the bell 25-30 times. Continually!! My two young daughters were on the other side of the door saying, we can’t open door please please wait for our mummy to come back. But no, they used their key to let themselves in, as I was only gone 3 minutes or so they really didn’t give it long!! My husband was in the shower. When I got back it was evident my girls were very scared and this is unacceptable! They cleaners were saying you go you go! It was 9:40am and check out clearly clearly stated as 10:30. This is wrong! Totally! I have been very very generous with 4* as they was an awful experience.
I am really sorry for your unusual experiences.
Our welcome pack, which is free of charge, normally gets compliments, since it includes not only food items but also a decent bottle of wine and of course milk. It seems the last item was overlooked for you which it should not have been.
The garden improvement work was all scheduled for a period we deliberately left empty. Unfortunately some edging stones were out of stock and had to be ordered. The gardener had been instructed not to disturb clients and it seems he considered the work no more intrusive than his normal essential maintenance visits to keep the area neat and tidy. Clearly you were disturbed which should not have happened..
Our cleaners have been with us for over 10 years and are normally excellent. The whole outside area is actually well shielded from the pathway by a substantial hedge, so their vision would at best be momentary. They do not however understand English and I am sure that they would have been trying to determine at what time you were planning to go, not to tell you to go. However, I fully accept that they should not have come early and this has been addressed.
I am glad that overall you still had a lovely stay.
Lovely, clean apartment in a great location.
One week stay for a pre Christmas family break. Arrived late in the evening and with the directions Nigel had given us it was easy to find the apartment and settle in very quickly. The apartment is very spacious, lots of lovely touches to make the stay special and Nigel and Rosie made us feel very welcome. The apartment is very central in Guia and even though it was their holidays, there were still a few restaurants very close by that were open, including a bakers that was open from early hours of the morning cooking fresh bread, cakes and pies. We were also fortunate to come across a little bar in the village that soon became our local. Having a hire car enabled us to visit nearby towns, beaches and attractions and in December the beaches in December are beautiful and quiet. We were very lucky to have found this apartment and my two boys ages 10 and 8 both thoroughly enjoyed their first visit to Portugal. My husband and I are hoping it won't be our last visit!.
Recently returned from our holiday in Portugal in this lovely apartment. It was perfect for our week's holiday - lovely accommodation and all the amenities you need to feel at home. We loved the fact that you could walk to Guia village within a couple of minutes for all the local restaurants and shops and it was a short car journey to the beach in Gale. Can't recommend highly enough!!
Praia de Gale is less than 10 minutes by car and offers restaurants overlooking the sea serving fresh fish, miles of lovely sandy beaches with hidden coves and stunning views, together with water sports in season.
There are several attractions nearby to entertain the whole family. Zoo marine with its dolphin and parrot shows is perfect for children, while water parks Slide and Splash, Aquatic and the Big One are within very easy driving distance too.
EXPLORING: there are so many interesting places not too far from Guia that are well worth visiting. You could start at the 17th century local village church with its statues and famous azulejo tile pictures then go to Monchique with its famous spa up the mountains, or perhaps to Silves, where you could have lunch and look around the Moorish Castle. Street markets feature in many of the villages and these can be fascinating. Alternatively head for Villamoura to be with the jet-set at this marina with boutiques, shops and restaurants
Other Activities: 10 mins drive to watersports in season.
