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!

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.

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!
