Upon our arrival we was pointed in the right direction of our apartment!
The apartment was in a lovely position on the complex near to pool and bar!
The apartment so very well equipped with everything you could think of, very spacious , we didn't need air conditioning in the 40 degree heat as the breeze is lovely ! The walk down to the beach was hard work as very steep but overall we would love to go back! Thank you
Fabulous spacious apartment!
A lovely week in this fabulous apartment. We will definitely be returning!
Lovely spacious appartment
We had a lovely week. Spacious clean apartment equipped with everything you need for comfort. Nice quiet and relaxing location. Kids really enjoyed the tennis. Hope to return some day.
Lovely spacious apartment, nice facilities
We really enjoyed our stay here, and found the apartment spacious enough for six adults. The apartment is well equipped for self catering, lots of cups, glasses and crockery. The outdoor terrace was nice and spacious, with plenty of sunshine. Plenty of seating both indoors and out. Sheets and towels provided, although we had a problem as not enough was provided for our guests who arrived later - however a phone call to the management company resolved this.
The complex is also really nice, we were welcomed in the little bar, and enjoyed lovely coffee overlooking Albufeira. A couple of us also braved the pool! Whilst it is a steep walk down to the Old Town and back if you go the most direct route, there are plenty of other gentler routes back up! Taxis are also incredibly cheap, so a good option for getting back with shopping.
We had a lovely stay and would be happy to return.
Nice apartment to stop in
The apartment had everything you would expect and we have stayed in many so on that front you couldn't complain at all and it is not too far from the old town (although a hilly hike back which was ok for me but the olds didn't like that part so just get a taxi as cheap anyway..it isn't called Windmill Hill for nothing haha) ... Everything worked (TV, kitchen utensils, boiler etc etc) and the check in was easy and instruction from the owners is clear and easy to follow. The only downside I would say is the mattresses..I think toppers are needed as the mattress (or mattresses as my bed was actually 3 mattresses on top of each other??) Were all about 15 yr old and well past their best..the olds also mentioned the mattress wasn't good either ... I think the owner and management company need to sort that out if honest ... Luckily there was a spare foldi
Thank you for your review. We know some of the mattresses are getting old and ordered new mattresses when we were over at Easter (maybe we should have done this earlier but always seem to find better things to do than go shopping when in Albufeira).
These will be delivered at the beginning of June & hopefully this will rectify the problem.
Big spacious everything one needed,good value
