“Amazing apartment in a fantastic location.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I have just come back from a weeks stay in this apartment and I would highly recommend it to people looking to stay in the old town. The booking process was very efficient and Maureen was excellent at providing all the information we needed.
When we arrived we were impressed with how nicely the apartment was done out. All very modern and decorated to a high standard. We spent many days by the pool which was lovely and we never had any problems getting a sun lounger which was a real bonus.
The apartment is located about 5 minutes walk from the centre of the old town which is full of bars and restaurants. It was so nice to be so close but be able to go back to our quiet apartment and pool area so easily. Thank you for this great apartment and we will definitely be recommending it again.

“Fabulous apartment, perfect location!”

I stayed here for 9 nights in July/August with my boyfriend and had a wonderful holiday! The apartment itself is in the most perfect location, less than 5 minute walk to the beach and old town square. There are shops restaurants and bars right outside your door yet it is in a very quiet and peaceful area. The pool was small but the pool area was lovely, with comfortable sun loungers and umbrellas. The apartment itself was very well equipped with all the cooking utensils etc you need, very comfortable bed, large flat screen tv with DVD player, amazing shower and a balcony with a small table and chairs. A 2 minute walk to fabulous restaurants and the lively old town square. The bus to Slide and Splash Waterpark goes from right outside the front door! Also only a €10 taxi to the fabulous Algarve Shopping Centre. The perfect holiday in the perfect accommodation with great communication from the owner.! Would definitely be returning

We have just returned home from a wonderful holiday staying at 505 Bay View. The service we have received from start to finish was excellent. Maureen was brilliant and could not have been more helpful. The apartment is stunning with everything and more that you need, the shower is heavenly and the bed ensured we had the best sleep we have ever had away from home. Everything you require for a fabulous holiday is on the doorstep. We highly recommend apartment 505! We also recommend a visit to the Blue Bell Bar, Chris the manager is a great bloke and wonderful host. We cannot wait to return next year. Enjoy!!!!!

“Perfect !!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment is a fantastic place, the location is quiet but central being only a few steps from the town square. There are numerous places to eat and drink around the apartment which has a lovely pool and roof area for sunbathing.
The apartment has 'THE BEST' shower i have ever used. The bed and pillow were like home comfort!!
Kitchen very well equipped and the decor luxurious !!! Full size TV, iron etc. want for nothing!! Maureen who we liaised with before and during our stay provided very reliable communication throughout and nothing was too much bother.
HIGHLY recommend the apartment and the location, we plan to return for sure !!!!!!

“Lovely apartment in perfect location”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here for 10 days at the beginning of June. The apartment is furnished to a high standard and has everything you need. This included an iron and ironing board which came in very handy. The bed and pillows were very comfy and we found it to be very quiet at night. So comfy and quiet in fact that one night we slept for nearly 11 hours!! The underground parking was very handy and the location of the apartment was just perfect. 5 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the square where there is a huge selection of bars and restaurants.
Also the pool area was lovely and never overly busy which was nice.
The apartment is just as it looks on the photos and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
