The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve is the region to the south of Portugal, on the south west tip of Europe. It is Europe's sunniest spot, a unique jewel where the finest beaches and weather on the continent meet traditional and historic Portugal.
Armacao De Pera is in the region known as Central Algarve, close to the busy towns of Albufeira, Portimao and the old Moorish capital of Silves with its magnificent walls and castle. It boasts the longest beaches on the Algarve. During the summer months it is very popular with Portugesse families, but outside the top of the season it offers a wonderful peaceful holiday location. You will be amazed at the choice of restaurants and cafes and the friendly atmosphere and charm of the place. It offers a great year round holiday resort ideal for families,couples and golfers due to the world class golf courses all within a short distance of the apartment.
The Armacao de Pera area
Armacao De Pera until recently was nothing more than a collection of small fishing shacks where locals from the nearby village of Pera use to maintain there fishing boats. The fishermans beach is still in use today and you will see tourists and fishermen mingling together as they inspect their latest catch. There is also fish and fruit markets where you can bag a bargain or just stroll amoung the locals as they go about their bussiness.
A huge attraction to Armacao De Pera is the Zoomarine, a huge marine park with sharks, dolphins and other sea creatures. Here a single ticket gives the visitor access to an area of leisure, entertainment and education. You can also interact with the dolphins and get to swim with them if you choose. The marine park is open all year round and is within a short drive of the apartment.
Another attraction for all the family is the huge Aqualand, one of the biggest water parks in Europe. Here you will find the world famous Banzai Boggan ride, a vertical drop of 23 metres where you get to surf your board at the end of, the sort of ride that you will tell your friends about.
For the golfers Salgados Golf Club is within a short distance of Armacao De Pera. This is a 18 hole golf course which has a modern clubhouse, restaurant and bar / terrace, beach bar as well as a driving range.
One of the most beautiful attactions to Armacao De Pera is the rugged coastline just north of the town. Whether you choose to explore it on foot or go by boat in and around the caves you wil be astounded by the natural beauty of this unique area. Stand at the tiny chapel of Nossa Senhora da Rocha (Our Lady of the Rocks) which stands 30m high on a cliff edge above one of the finest beaches on the Algarve, a sight that will remain with you for a long time.
Armacao De Pera has everthing you need for a lovely holiday, fantastic beaches, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. It is also placed for a day out at Zoomarine sea life park, a trip to the Algarve Shopping Centre, the Aqualand Water Park or to the many golf courses near to the town.

I travelled with my husband ,my son and his girlfriend.We had a fanatastic time.The apartment was spotless clean and very spacious.It was in a great location and no car is needed for travel about the town.It was our first time in Portugal and we had such a great time.Thanks to Sean and Bernie.Kippis Bar is excellent for a good nights entertainment.We visited Zoomarine and it was great.We would definitely return to the apartment.
Thank you for your response glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. I would like to add that this year the complex has a new manager and she will be making lots of improvements such as lots of sunbeds around the swimming pool area and easier access to the swimming pool area as well. We have only ever had one review that said anything negative in regards to our apartment and this was to do with the swimming pool area. I hope now that future guests will be pleased with the improvements made by the new manager. We hope to see you at our apartment again soon. Regards Sean and Bernie.

This is a nice apartment in a great location near to the centre of Armacao de Pera and the beach. The apartment is spacious and has balconies from all rooms, which means you get the sun all day if you move between them. The kitchen/living/dinin area is adequate but quite small for six people and as specified on the website, only has comfortable seating for 3.
The apartment complex has a fantastic, spacious pool area but there were hardly any sunbeds available for use. The complex has a significant number of apartments and we could only count 13 sunbeds that were available for general use. The majority of sunbeds were chained and padlocked together, which we assumed belonged to apartment owners and many of the guests were as bemused and disappointed as us at the situation. It was particularly difficult for families with children and those who are more elderly as there was nowhere for them to sit or lie down at the pool although some of the younger people, including my own children just lay on the ground on a towel!
The other thing that is worth being aware of is that you need to go out of the apartment block, walk along the street and round a corner to gain access to the pool area and a key is needed to both get in to, and out of the pool area. We were a party of 6, including 2 teenagers and my parents who are in their 70s and this made life extremely difficult as whenever someone wanted to leave the pool area, another member of the family had to go to the gate to let them out and also return to let them in again. Due to the fact our party included a 13 year old, a 17 year old and parents in their 70s, we also had a similar issue with accessing the apartment. We didn't always do everything together and since there was only one key for entry to apartment block and one key for entry to the apartment itself, this made life extrmely difficult when we were doing different things.
All in all, we enjoyed our holiday and managed to work around the issues highlighted here and we would definitely recommend visiting Armacao de Pera. However, we all felt we would not return to these apartments unless the sunbed situation and the access issues were improved.
The owners of this comlex are aware of the issue with the sunbeds and are trying to resolve this with the manage ment company. Hopefully from 2013 this will be resolved.
