“Our little piece of heaven” The Cabrita family are excellent hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. If you have a problem they are always there to help and assist you. I was unfortunate enough to be mugged, Gabriel took us to the Police Station and stayed with us until 12.30am, then took us back to Pomba Branca, what a star.I must say that we have been going to Portugal for 25 years and this is the first time such an incident has happened, It certainly will not put us off we have already booked for next year.
Pomba Branca is home from home, every comfort is provided, hygiene is faultless, conveniently nearby are Supermarkets, Chemists, Restaurants, Banks, One stop booking tour office, Taxi rank, Bus stops, Doctor, Dentist, Hairdresser and Margareths Massage Saloon(Highly recommended for that extra bit of pampering).
Pomba Branca has it all and the beach is just a short walk away and if you are lucky lots of lovely sunshine.
“Great getaway” We found the apartment to be warm and homely, where all of the family could relax for the week that we stayed. The weather was beautiful which enhanced the outstanding view of the 7th hole of Vale de Pinta golf course. The master bedroom provided a lovely outlook onto the swimming pool, where the family enjoyed several days of relaxing in the sun. It is in a perfect location for access to local beaches and restaurants. Overall, the whole family enjoyed our stay and we would recommend this apartment to anyone who is considering staying there.
“fab stay” Villa baia is a beautiful complex, and this apartment is excellent , spacious and ultra modern. i would highly recommend it to family and friends, you are very close to the beach and excellent restaurants that luz has. We had a fab stay and cant wait to return.
“Very good standard and location.” We were upgraded to this apartment free of charge. The apartment is generally well equipped and well located in a very quiet area, about 5 minutes from beach and 10 minutes from Strip. Could have done with a clothes horse. Overall we were very satisfied with the apartment. The only problem we had was with the shower. On our arrival the representative told us it was an awkward system but did not show how it worked. When we tried to use it we couldn't get it to work and when we phoned we were told what to do but it still didn't work.
However generally we were very happy with the apartment.
“Great apartment in a quiet location, close to beach” We've recently returned from a stay at this fab ground floor apartment.
The apartment overlooks the rear gardens and is a short walk from the communal swimming pool. The whole complex is gated and secure and the apartment itself had shuttered doors and windows.
It's only about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, restaurants & bars as well as the pretty harbour.
The apartment itself is clean, comfortable and spacious. It pretty much has everything you need, including a sun umbrella for use by the pool.
If I was visiting Alvor again I'd definitely stay here and would recommend it to couples, families or groups.

“A beautiful well equipped apartment with fantastic views.” We loved the apartment and the location, we would recommend having a car. This area of Portugal is completely unspoilt. The golf courses are excellent and were not overcrowded. All aspects of the booking were handled promptly and efficiently.
“Excellent Condo” I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. It is a new, very nice place to stay with everything you might need while you are there. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine - nice! The owners were very expedient in communicating with us before and during our stay. The apartment has underground parking which is very handy. The pools looked great ( a little too cool yet during our stay). There are some DVD's and great books for your use while you are there. The view from the balcony is amazing and a great place for morning coffee while soaking up the sun. The beach and town centre and restaurants are all walking distance. Lagos is also a great location from which to take many day trips and check out other villages and beaches. We went to Sagres, Mochique, Silves and Aljezur while we there and several times took a long a picnic to enjoy on the beautiful beaches while listening to the waves crash into shore. The grounds are kept very clean and the guards at the reception were great as well. You do have to get your own WiFi or you can use the computer in the reception for no extra costs or many of the restaurants also have free WiFI.
“Best apartment ever stayed in.” This apartment is perfect in every way, Immaculate decor, large rooms, two big balconies so you can follow the sun or shade whichever you want.. The location is ideal with both the centre and beaches within easy walking distance. The pool area is never too crowded so whether you want a quiet 'siesta' or a dip it is ideal.
Have booked again for 2013 which is something we rarely do but this place is too good not to return.
“Fantastic apartment in an ideal location.” This apartment is ideally situated minutes away from the busy Strip in Albufeira but you would never know as we were there for ten days and not once did we hear any noise from anything other than the seagulls . The apartment was so well equipped it was like home from home.The two bathrooms are very handy and there was a lovely balcony where we could sit out in the evening and entertain before going out .The apartment is also very secure, to the extent at one stage we got locked out but thanks to Sheila we were back into the apartment very quickly, even though it was on a Sunday afternoon. We have already been trying to rebook for next year but unfortunately the secret of how good it is is out and our dates are already taken. Bad for us but excellent for the owners. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
“Perfect base for Albufeira” We've just returned from this accommodation and found it to be the perfect base for a holiday in Albufeira. It is a 5 minute walk down to the Old Town/beach where there are no shortage of bars and restaraunts. If you don't feel like walking back up hill taxis are readily available. It is also 5 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket.
The house itself is a great size, is nicely decorated and was spotlessly clean. In the kitchen there is a full cooker/oven, large fridge and plenty of utensils.
The balconies and patio are all of good size and could easily accomodate 4 chairs. The built in BBQ on the ground floor patio is a nice touch. This patio also looks out over the well kept gardens and pool area.
We loved our stay here and wouldn't hesitate going back again or recommending to family or friends.
Rob, the owner, was great to communicate with and very helpful.
“Relax to the Max!!” We visited this wonderful apartment in June 2013. Communication with the owners was excellent, (they couldn't have made it easier) and the management company very professional. The pictures don't do the apartment justice and it has everything you could want, the location very tranquil (especially as only a couple of the other apartments were being used when we were there), we didn't want to leave!!
This is our third visit to Portugal previously renting apartments in Alvor and Porto Do Mos, but this apartment is our favourite by far!
We had already arranged to have a hire car, but the owners are more than happy to arrange transfers to and from the airport.
The location is great - opposite (and I really mean opposite) the lovely beach of Meia Praia, approx. 30mins walk (either on the side of the road or on the beach) to Lagos Marina, or you can get a local bus or train from just across the road from the apartment (which both run regularly). Lagos itself is a lovely old town with lots of good restaurants. There is also a golf course (Val Da Lama I think) just up the road - several people had left messages in the guest book saying that a twilight round, buggy and hire of clubs was around €55.
We found this location also great to visit other beaches towards the most western tip of the Algarve (Sagres) - only 20/30 mins away by car from a number of many lovely bays/beaches (some of which are great for surfing) e.g. Beliche, Zavial, Tonnel & Mareta plus many others in-between.
All in all a wonderful holiday in a wonderful apartment and we look forward to visiting again one day soon!
“Friendly, professional service, accommodation and location perfect.” Very impressed with the accommodation and service. The accommodation was safe, clean and lovely, making it easy to relax and make the most of my stay.
“Best holiday apartment....ever.” We've stayed in this apartment now for three straight years. It has everything you could ask for, and more. We have three kids - 13, 11 and 2 - and there was plenty of space for us all. A real home from home, with everything you need. Having dealt with Kim over the past three years, it is a complete pleasure to provide this feedback - this apartment really does what it says on the tin. For location it's a couple of minutes from the Marina and 10 minutes to the beach. Each year it has been a straight no-brainer to re-book..we could not recommend it any more highly ... book it and you won't be disappointed!!
“Perfect apartment for our week in Lisbon” Lovely apartment with masses of space and all comforts. Hugo and Rita are thoughtful hosts and made sure we had all the information and tips we needed. Position in the centre of Lisbon (but tucked away in a quiet square) makes it perfect for sightseeing all over this lovely city.
“Excellent apartment very well equiped.” Lovely location with restaurants and bars very close by,the old town is very near by too, the beach is lovely with the old town just across the the walk bridge. Such a picturesque resort with a great view of the Marina.would recommend this Lagos to all my friends.
“home from home brill” thank you clive for the use of your stunning apt very spacious beautifully furnished .the town centre and marina 15 mins walk and must recommend lindas beach bar .will def use again when we visit portugal and i must say best instructions ever for getting there and details of the apt. thanks again
“Beautiful property with everything you need” Very nice property with lots of terraces including a roof terrace with lovely views of the golf course and a distant sea view. The Old Village is a very pretty place to stay with beautiful well tended gardens. The owner was very kind and let us stay until 6pm on the last day for no extra cost - thanks Katie. We had a great time and my niece's wedding venue of Acasa Largo was beautiful and a minutes walk from the apartment.
“Excellent Base for Lago” We stayed in this well equipped apartment as 2 couples in or 50s and 60s. Lots of local restaurants and traditional bars close by and Lagos town centre and beaches were a pleasant 20 minute stroll. The pool was not too busy and the owner supplied beds and mattresses along with some inflatables for the pool. Excellent accommodation with a lovely balcony for al fresco dining. Will be returning soon!
