“Great location; fully equipped apartment”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This apartment faces the Marina at Albufeira. Good views of the Marina, the pool and the ocean from the balcony. Albufeira is also a nice central location in general; we were able to quickly get to Faro, Cape St. Vincent and the Benagil Caves, with numerous amazing beaches just a 10-20 minute drive to the west. The main beach in town, is busy, but also nice. Unique in that it has an elevator that can take you to street level on the one end!

We are a family of three; myself, my husband and our 12 year old daughter. We were greeted by Veronika for check in; super friendly, efficient and helpful. She gave us a map of the local area and pointed out some of the more important local amenities/attractions. Rueben, the owner, had also left a bottle of green wine in the fridge for us, which was a very nice and much appreciated touch.

The apartment is spacious, clean and fully equipped including a washing machine. Tastefully decorated with a comfortable pull out couch in the large living room, which worked well for our daughter. The beds in the bedroom are singles, with a night stand in between... I'm sure we could have pushed them together, but didn't bother. You know you've been married too long when this is the case - hahaha.
We did find the mattresses really hard, but this has been the case in EVERY European apartment we have stayed in over the past 10 years. Maybe only us Canadians like a cloud like bed?

The included underground parking was a big plus for safety and for keeping the rental vehicle cool.

The building is quiet, which is important to this lite sleeper, but has easy access to numerous restaurants, a pub, a bowling alley/arcade and other fun activities for children (go carts, mini-bikes, quads, etc) on the strip at the base of the building on the marina side. There is also bungee jumping, which we watched from our balcony, and the marina is also the starting point for many boat tours/fishing tours/diving of the Algarve area. Really, a great location for families as well as couples.

The kitchen has a Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine for coffee, I prefer a french press, but it was better than not being able to make coffee at all in the morning!

Would absolutely stay here again if we return. Was the highlight of our trip to Portugal.

“another wonderful holiday at the marina.”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

the whole holiday was most enjoyable. our host was only too ready to help with advice and instruction to get around the immediate area and also further afield. My wife was unwell for a few days and our hosts were only too willing to help.
