"Great apartment well worth it!"
From start to finish the information received was spot on! The old town was really nice. The one thing I loved about the pool area was no hogging sun beds the staff do not allow it which was perfect for us. Thanks

"Lovely, well equipped apartment within a quiet area of Albufeira"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Encosta da Orada apartments. From enquiring about the property and for the duration of our stay, Alan Jones gave us a first class service and was so approachable and helpful to make sure we had a lovely holiday. The apartment was spotless, beautifully presented and so well equipped. The sofa beds were an excellent size but the single beds in the main bedroom were a little too hard for our liking. It's location was ideal with lovely views across the gardens towards the pools and the complex was beautifully landscaped and maintained throughout. There were two lovely pools and the tennis court was an added bonus. The complex is situated in a quiet residential area about a 10 minute downhill walk to the centre of the old town with a variety of bars and restaurants within easy reach. We've had a fantastic, relaxing stay here and would highly recommend to others.

"Beautiful spacious apartment in lovely quiet grounds yet only 10 minutes walk from Old Town - excellent"
All the delails for the stay had been sent in advance in a nice welcome pack and we were met as planned, very well managed.
The apartment complex is lovely, very quiet and secure. The apartment itself was really nice, clean, spacious with all mod cons,, great balcony space and well furnished throughout.
The pool area was great, 2 pools, one for kids, so loads of room for everyone.
Only 10-15 minutes walk to the Old Town and beach it's perfectly located for any type of holiday - a great spot!

"beautiful apartment and complex"
loved the apartment and the 2 seperate were great for 2 teenage boys not wishing to share a 'normal' double bed settee. very well equipped. loved the balcony with a pleasant breeze and good view. the aprtment is a 10 - 15 min walk to the old town (all downhill). yes it is very steep to get up - so we got a taxi back everytime - it only cost 4 euros - but ask to be dropped off at dolpin roundabout (bus stop) as it is nearer to the door and cheaper in the taxi. the complex was very well looked after with beautiful grounds. swimming pools a bit cold but i am a 'softie' and its only early summer yet. Great resort too lots to do if you wish or can just chill. one very good restaurant was 'via lactea' lunch time menu was fantastic and cheap. ie; either 2 huge pork chops/ sardines/ mackeral/ chicken piri piri + cost 4.90 euros served with chips and salad! also very good 'seafood rice' which was to die for as cost about £10 per head and is extremely filling. also best king shrimp cocktail. find it next to the chemist just of the old town square. We also enjoyed a portugese restuarant at the marina (can't remember the name, but i think it was the only 'real portugese' restaurant down there.. great holiday all round and would recomend the apartment to all ages. It is really a very relaxing and peaceful complex. Alan was very good to deal with and gave lots of helpful hints etc.

"Beautifully looked after apartment in a stunning setting, loved everything!"
We stayed at this apartment with two young children and it was perfect in every way. The apartment was exceptionally well presented and clean and in a brilliant spot within the complex. Views over the pool and down the hillside to the sea were stunning both day and night and the complex was very peaceful. Alan was a fantastic host, responding to all queries and questions we had quickly and with helpful ideas. The apartment was cleaned after a week of being there, which was a really great touch! We hired a car as had two small children with us, and the walk up the hill would have been a bit long without it. Was great to have as could park within the old town and also visit all the beautiful surrounding beaches. There was ample parking in the complex, all of which felt very secure. A super place to visit as a family and the pool was perfect for both small and older children - we will definitely book again!

"Beautiful and Quiet"
The apartment and complex are quiet and well maintained, exactly what we were looking for in a holiday. The complex is lovely, with a quiet pool area, no need to get up early to reserve a sun bed. 10-15 minute walk into the old town, with loads of restaurants and bars. There is a very steep hill down to the town or beach so make sure you take some sensible shoes. Favourite bar was 'Steps' bar which played live music each night and had a welcoming atmosphere. Have been to the same apartment 2 years in row, and we usually make a point of never going to the same place twice so that tells you how much we enjoyed our break.
