“Excellent apartment with amazing view”
Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Our first impressions when we arrived outside the apartment was that the area was a little sparse. There are pieces of empty land either side of the building that are just being used as car parks at present. But once we were inside the apartment which was on the 6th floor the views all along the coast are just amazing!!. The apartment block is secure and well lit and the apartment itself is lovely and well laid out. It has a long balcony with two very comfortable bean-bag chairs for relaxing after a day exploring the area although when we stayed the wind was very strong especially during the night. it is well furnished (has a double bed rather than two twins) and the kitchen has all you want for your stay. There is a supermarket about three quarters of the way along the promenade so you can stock up for your stay. The resort itself is quite compact and easy to navigate but the owner has a useful basket of information in the lounge that we found very useful.

We also found the tourist info office across the road alongside the beach. The beach itself is amazingly long and stretches as far as the eye can see. Two sunbeds and a parasol are 10 euros. We hired cycles as the designated cycle path is just across the road and you can cycle as far as you are able.
The only negative we could find was that the apartment didn't have Wi Fi but we worked around this by visiting the bars.
We would recommend a visit to Vila Real on the local bus and there you can pick up a ferry across to the town of Ayamonte. The bus terminus is at the top of the street directly opposite the casino, this costs a couple of euros each and drops you right at the port in Vila Real. The ferry takes about 20 mins and again only costs a couple of euros each so you can have a great day out. There are some lovely restaurants and cafes around the square in Ayamonte. The ferry leaves VR half past the hour and back from Ayamonte on the hour. Just remember that once you land on Spain that they are an hour ahead of Portugal !!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and both Susana and Rosario who met us with the keys were very helpful. Thank you both so much !!
We love this side of the Algarve as it is quieter and less developed that the western end and the beaches are endless. We will be back !
