Fantastic apartment / location - highly recommend
We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment. It is to a very high spec, and has everything you could possibly need. Rooms are large and spacious, and it has a luxury feel to it. Air conditioning a huge bonus as nights can be very hot in August. Balconies to both master and sitting room were well used.
The pool is perfect, with sunbeds to relax on inbetween dips in the pool. Although it was mid August and the apartments were occupied, there were no issues with noise - it was very calm and relaxing. Loads of parking spaces if you decide to hire a car.
Easy walk to the strip, where there are more bars and restuarants than you could hope to visit. And the beach was easily accessible on foot. We have teenage children and were very able to reach the Old Town on foot - although it was a good 30 min walk. But if you prefer, taxis are cheap (about 8Euro for the family) or there is a tourist train (although this worked out more expensive than the taxi, which was air conditoned and dropped you door to door).
Beaches were beautiful - we found a quiter beach just a little further on from The Strip (but again we reached on foot). The main beaches are full of activities to keep everyone busy, if that's what you are after. The huge inflatable in the sea was a bargain at 6 Euro for an hour. We tried Scuba Diving at nearby Indigio Divers. Numerous boat trips for all budgets from the Marina. I could go on! The Portugese people were welcoming and very genuine. We didn't feel we were being 'ripped off' at all, and the prices were cheaper than in England (although an excellnt exchange rate when we visited really helped!).
The booking process was easy, and we were sent all the details near to the departure date. Transfers were arranged by Alan and were faultless. Met at the apartment by David who was extremely helpful. It was just fabulous. Don't miss out on this little gem - get booking!
We booked the apartment for two weeks and the standard of it was excellent, exactly as described. It was clean and tidy on arrival (book Yellowfish transfer from airport) and had everything except a hairdryer. The local caretaker when told lent me one for the length of our stay. The air con system was great and necessary. The facilities allowed us to cook breakfast and lunch most days and we also cooked or got takeaway from Roberto's which was across the road on a few evenings and then chilled out and watched a DVD . The food from Roberto's was very good and I would recommend them to anyone staying at Parque da Corcovada.
The washing machine was put to good use - very necessary when you are trying to cut down on the amount of luggage due to the limited baggage allowance.
The location of the apartment was good - within walking distance of The Strip with its bars and restaurants but the beaches were a bit of a hike. If you are heading to the Old Town get the tourist train from the Strip and get a taxi back - the taxi costs just as much but is faster and leaves you at your front door.
On arriving I would suggest a taxi to the big supermarket just past the worms roundabout. Everything is a fraction of the cost of the small local shops, the choice is much better, and the quality of meat, fish, fruit and veg is perfect. Buy local brands where you can, you won't notice any difference except in the price.
There were lots of very good restaurants - Jonny Hoopers saxaphone bar was great - ring and book it.. At the bottom of the strip there are a number of good restaurants and in the Old Town the Portuguese restaurants were far superior - I would recommend the fresh fish dishes with some local wine!
My only complaint about the apartment block was that we would have made use of folding sun longers to take down to the pool if they had been available as some days it was impossible to get a sun longer by the pool. The man who maintained the pool area tried his best to ensure that beds were not pulled onto ground floor patios or had towels on them but sometimes he was fighting a loosing battle. It was very frustrating to have to put our towels on the grass area and sit on the ground when others had reserved their beds - for their entire families and didn't bother to use them until after lunch or mid afternoon.
On the whole I would recommend this apartment to a family with no hesitation - it was clean, comfortable and we had a great holiday
Fantastic Appartment. Great location
Raymond Allyson and family.
Had a great time in Portugal last August. Beautiful spacious appartment. Home from home!! Very clean and tidy. Lovely pool area. Short walk to Strip - Plenty of shops and restaurants. Train to Old Town very handy. Everything went without a hitch Thanks to Alan's great organising- transfers to and from Airport. Would love to go back. Highly recommended.
Albufeira, Portugal mest populære feriested, er beskrevet som "Turist Capital" i Algarve og er en perfekt base for at udforske det omkringliggende område.
Lejligheden er beliggende i en rolig udvikling en 15 min gåtur til stranden ved Praia Oura og en 5 min walk til den meget livlige turist 'Strip' foret med cafeer, restauranter, barer og natklubber. Det er en kort afstand fra Albufeira gamle bydel med sine hvidkalkede huse, butikker og smalle brostensbelagte gader. Der er en moderne marina give vandsport og fantastiske sandstrande bakkes op af kalksten klipper. For sportsentusiaster er der mange aktiviteter til rådighed fra den verdensberømte golfbaner til den spændende vandland. Aquashow i Quarteira og 'Slide & Splash' i Lagoa er to vandlande, som giver en spændende dag ud. Man skal også se Zoomarine baseret i Guia en kort bil / bustur væk. Zoomarine funktioner delfin og tropiske fugl viser, et akvarium, karruseller og swimmingpools omgivet af smukke søer og haver
