We booked this 2 bedroom apartment direct with the owner although the apartment is part of the Monte Dourado resort and is serviced by them. The apartment was clean and spacious with all the facilities you would hope for. There are 2 bathrooms one with a bath and shower and one with just a shower. The kitchen was well equipped.... More

Visited on an Easy Jet last minute holiday. The villa was brilliant. Immaculate and with every appliance and needs catered for. The villas are just out of the town centre, yes is an incline but if you explore and enter via the rear of the complex, the walk is far kinder. We walked along the cliffs for several hours and...

As many other contributors have mentioned, the property is near the top of a hill and there is a bit of a climb involved. However, our apartment was well furnished and comfortable and we had everything we required (it had the appearance of being owned by an English person judging by various clues). It seems the apartments are all owned... More

We had a top floor sea view apartment. It was clean and spacious with all necessary amenities. Short walk to village & beautiful sun the whole week, we were able to have our breakfast on the balcony overlooking the beach every morning. Reception staff helpful with information & maps. Wonderful peaceful stay.

Apartments are nice and clean. They are also cleaned five times a week by very nice cleaning ladies. Towels are there and replaced when needed. Location is terrific and only short walking distance from the center of Carvoeiro (but the way goes uphill and is rather steep). People a the reception are very kind and willing to help you.
