The third bedroom, ideally suited for young children has two single beds and does not have a terrace. Additional fold-up beds are provided as well as a cot and highchair, if necessary. A key feature of this apartment is its safety with each of the bedrooms located on the ground level and full view of the pools.A large plasma TV/DVD is provided in the livingroom with full channel packagewih an additional TV/DVD in the main bedroom.

The apartment overlooks one of the two outdoor pools which is ideal for sunbathing with ample sunloungers and palm trees for shading. One of the pools is for adults use only with the pool on the lower level suitable for children with its own toddler pool.

The gymnasium and spa health centre are but a few paces from the apartment and provide everything you could want from pampering to a full fitness regime.

"Great luxurious apartment- perfect for a relaxing holiday!"

We stayed in this apartment again this year, having had a great holiday in Estrela last year. As a family with mixed interests there was something for everyone, great bars, restaurants, spa treatments and even a super gym. As the apartment is huge there was plenty of space for us all to chill out with an enormous terrace to sunbathe on and dine out al fresco.
We will be back next year for sure and will be staying at this apartment again, with its sunny aspect and great location overlooking the adult pools.

"This is our 4th Year at this wonderful apartment."

What more can I say, this is our 4th year staying at this wonderful apartment. We are a family of seven with 5 children from the ages of 10 to 23 and the Estrela Complex manages to keep everyone happy. Having a large family, space is very important and the first time we walked into the apartment, we were over the moon. It is huge and easily sleeps 7 or 8 without everyone feeling on top of each other. But it is not just the space that makes this apartment so special, there is a gorgeous balcony terrace which runs the full length of the living room and Master bedroom. The table on the balcony seats 8 and we would often eat Al freso. The quality of furniture and fittings are excellent and the apartment contains everything you could possibly need for an amazing holiday including a choice of inflatables, beach umbrellas and the most fabulous beach hat collection! Lillian the owner is lovely, very friendly, easy to deal with and professional. The Estrela complex has 3 pools, 2 outdoor including a baby pool and 1 indoor. There is also a gym, tennis courts and the Hugo Beaty bar has an internet room and 2 pool tables. It really does tick all the boxes and I have stayed and seen other apartments on Estrela but this is definitely the best.

"Fantastic and luxurious"

Really great apartment! Suitable for families or a group of friends. The apartment is really spacious, well equipped and comfortable- not to mention nicely decorated! It has a large balcony with sun loungers and a table and chairs over looking one of the outdoor pools where you are able to sunbath and have lunch/dinner. There are two gorgeous outdoor pools to choose from where we sun bathed most days.
If your unlucky enough to experience rain when you are over there, as we did one of the days, there is a gorgeous indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and gym to relax in. There apartment is only a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach and there are plenty of nice restaurants around the town in walking distance. As we were a group of girls, we went into the centre of Lagos most nights which was only a 5 minute taxi journey away.
All in all I would highly recommend this apartment- great location and gorgeous apartment.

Myself, my husband and our two adult sons have just returned from a great break and birthday celebrations and we could not have selected a better location - the Apartment was simply amazing from every vaspect. We could sit in the sun up to 3.30pm then either stroll to the beach or sit by the pool for another few hours. Before heading out for the evening we could then sit out on the smaller terrace at the other side of Apartment to catch the last of the sunshine.
We would have dinner in various Restaurants and each and everyone great. We would then return to Hugo's Bar on this wonderful Complex and spend LONG hours enjoying games of Pool and Darts and of course a couple of drinks.
Each morning my husband and sons would kick start their day in the Gym with a workout, swim and sauna.
We have stayed a few times in Estrela but this time the Apartment we had made all the difference - between the space,our ensuite bedroom it was luxury. Highly recommend, believe us, if u choose this Apartment you will not be dissapointed.

Beach perfect for sand castles and rock pools. It even has a few swings and a slide next to a bar/cafe.
The indoor pool at the resort was a life saver as we had unusually bad weather. The reception staff were always friendly and helpful.
The apartment was great. Large, clean, well equipped.
I couldn't recommend it more.

"Perfect break in a wonderful location, we'll be back."

We've just returned from our fifth visit to this apartment in as many years. It's a delightful apartment, very favourably located within a stylish, friendly and well-run small resort in one of the prettiest villages in the western Algarve. If you're looking for a spacious setting with all the comforts of home set within a full-service resort, we can enthusiastically recommend this apartment to you. We hope to return again soon ourselves.
