We had a lovely holiday in this apartment in August 2012, myself, my husband, two children (5 and 6) and my parents. Very spacious apartment, beautifully furnished with all mod cons, very secure, everything you need is supplied, plenty of room for everyone with plenty of storage space (with lots of toys for the pool/beach an added bonus).
Location is excellent, a couple of restaurants on the complex and less than a 10 minute stroll to some lovely restaurants on the Strip, the Old Town also provides more dining options. We took a couple of day trips to other resorts, Vilamoura and Olhos D'Agua, both of which were easy to get to by private transfer organised by Sugar Travel which are on site in the complex.
The kids loved the pool area which had a very friendly atmosphere. They would have been happy to spend the entire holiday there playing with the new pals they met. We went to Zoo Marine in Guia which is a short drive away, really enjoyed this, it was a great family day out.
The owner was a pleasure to deal with, nothing was a problem, answered all my questions and great for tips and advice. All in all I would highly recommend this apartment for a great relaxing holiday, a real home from home. If we go back to Portugal next year this is the apartment we will be staying in.

Excellent apartment located within less than 10 minutes walk to the strip and easy access to tourist train to the old town. Apartments themselves are on a modern complex with two swimming pools very close to apartment Block 35 1A. Very spacious and comfortable apartments with every facility you could need on a self catering holiday. Beautifully furnished and felt very safe and secure with key entry and video camera entry, also metal shutters on every window and remote control air conditioning. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and made the whole process very simple and stress free. The cupboard full of pool toys was a great bonus for us and my toddler made lots of friends around the pool. Highly recommend this apartment, faultless from start to finish.
