"Fab apartment for relaxing break!"
Stayed at this apartment with friends last week and what a great apartment it was. Spotlessly clean on arrival, the apartment it lovely and spacious with modern decoration. It's well equipped for a self catering break, but near local bars and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking. Location wise it was great for a relaxing break, but with everything on your doorstop, supermarket minutes walk away along with a small selection of bars and restaurants. The complex also runs a free shuttle bus to Albufereira New and Old Town on a daily basis, and we found taxis back reasononable (approx €12 each way). There's also a gorgeous beach 10/15mins walk away with a small cafe/bar for a cold drink once you get there. Two pools to pick from and the apartment, with plenty of sun loungers to choose from. Wouldn't hesistate to book this place again if we head back to the Algave.
Thank you for your kind review. If I had the facility to rate my guests you would be a 5 star. Communication with you was prompt and problem free. I'm glad you and your guests had a good time. You are welcome back any time.

"Great family trip!"
We stayed for a week in this apartment and it was a great holiday. The place is spacious and well suited to a family. I had my 4 year old and new baby (5months) so I was a little nervous about travell… More
Thank you for your review. As you know, we try to cater for kids with the high chair and cot. You looked after the apartment whilst there and are very welcome to stay again.

"Fantastic apartment in a Perfect location"
The apartment is fantastic so well equipped that we felt it was home from home. There was a drawer of books , DVDs and spare travel adapters to borrow and lots of useful information on the local area. The kitchen has everything you could want or expect self catering . There was a compact vacuum cleaner which was great and also an abundance of wardrobe and cupboard space for a family of four ticked all the boxes. Travelling with teenagers the free wifi in the room was an added bonus. The apartment is in a really good position , there is a supermarket less than 5 minutes away with newspaper shops and an ATM . It was good to try all the local restaurants in the square to the fish restaurant close by and with self catering we weren't on a time schedule so we could relax and eat slightly later in the evening. Acoteias has the best beach and is 15/20 minute walk, passing supermarkets and the square with lots of cafés. There is a local bus stop outside the hotel to Albufeira or there is a hotel courtesy bus . I couldn't fault anything in the apartment . We all had a great relaxing time in a perfect location. Wish I was there now .
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you had a good holiday and you are more than welcome to stay again anytime.

"Very clean large apartment. Wifi in appt a plus."
We stayed in this apartment during the month of April 2014 and were very pleased. We were a 15 minutes walk from the beach and it was worth ever step. The supermarkets were close by and provided good products and service.
Thank you for your booking and your kind review. Falesia Beach is indeed beautiful and worth every step it takes to get there. You are welcome back anytime.

"Loved it - will definately be back !!"
The apartment is lovely - tastefully decorated with plenty of space throughout and a SOUTH facing good sized balcony. Full use of hotel facilities including bars and pools but only really made use of pool area. Glad I was'nt a hotel guest as most of them were all inclusive which meant they missed out on all the local bars/restaurants. Plenty of bars/restaurants a two minute walk away (as was supermarket/tobacconist/newsagent) and suffice to say at some point we visited most of them. Restaurants included local Portuguese, Italian, Chinese, steak house, tapas and some finer dining places. All places very friendly towards us. We stayed mid October so the general area was fairly quiet but if you wanted more life then Old Town Albufeira was a 11 Euro taxi ride away (22 return) and again well worth a visit. We booked the apartment at short notice and had a great time and would certainly book again.
Thanks for the review. We are glad you had a good time and tried some of the many local restaurants. You are welcome to return at any stage.

It is the 6th time we have stayed in this appartment . The appartment has recently been upgraded which makes for a great holiday.All the mod cons you would expect for a great holiday.The appartment is close to cafes and restaurants,supermarkets,and takeaways. There are 2 beaches which can be reached by walking a short distance.We have friends who keep going back year after year. The view from the balcony over the sheraton golf course is really nice.we would certainly recommend this appartment to anyone.
Thank you for the review. We are grateful for all your bookings and look forward to you staying again in he future.

"Prefect for couples and families"
This was the first holiday with our 11 month old and also the first holiday not booked through the usual travel agents. Everything went smoothly. The facilities are great. Local amenities close by and all very child friendly. The apartment was clean and spacious more than enough room for 3 adults and a baby. The information pack within the apartment was a nice touch and the apartment itself is very well equipped. Definitely going back.
Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed staying at our apartment. You are welcome back anytime.

"Excellent accommodation with all the facilities you need"
This accommodation is part of an hotel which is excellent as you have full use of the hotel pools. We travelled with our two children who are 11 and 14. The hotel is in a quiet location which suited us perfectly. There are good restaurants nearby. A 10 minute walk takes you to the local beach where there are more restaurant choices - the Pizza Restaurant here is excellent!
Olhos d'Agua is a 5-10minute taxi ride - we loved the buzz here at night time - loads of restaurants, ice-cream shops and a beach here too.
The apartment is lovely, fresh and clean and felt like a home from home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
Thank you for the booking and your review. We have to agree - the pizzas in the Italian restaurant near Falesia Beach are good. Glad you had a nice stay.

"Very nice apartment and lovely nearby beach"
We had a great stay in Alpinus. The apartment was great although what the photo doesn't show is that the balcony is just overlooking a main road which runs right round the front of the hotel. So the views weren't great but the beach made up for that mainly. Falesia beacj is the closest one (10-15 mins walk) and it's a really clean and pleasant beach and wasn't at a crowded when we were there. There are nice restaurants near by as well so you have everything you need although it's not the prettiest of areas. We did find that the hotel reception were a little unwilling to help and advise us to begin with because we were in the 'private apartment' which we were reminded has nothing to do with the hotel. This wasn't too much of a problem over all but it didn't help welcome us much. The free shuttle bus which takes you into the main town and other beach was great but again, because we were staying in the private apartment, they put us at the bottom of the list and told us that if the bus was full we wouldn't be able to get on, even if we had reserved a spot in advance of others. This didn't feel great but luckily the bus was never full up. Over all a nice holiday though.
Thank you for the booking and your review. I am glad you had a good stay. You looked after the apartment well whilst there and we would welcome you back anytime. I will bring the issues at reception to the attention of the hotel manager. Thanks again.
