“Disappointed”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2016

Having read some good reviews about this apartment we expected it to be relatively modern with up to date facilities but were very disappointed on our arrival. Although it was reasonably clean it was dated. Bedding was old and musky and the furniture had seen better days. The Internet Broadband was a mobile connection on MEO and coverage in this area is very poor with the fasted speed achieved during our stay being 0.10Mbps not fast enough for anything but social media. There was no Satellite TV connection, DVD player or CD Player (all advertised as being available in the apartment). However, the pool was very nice, well maintained and clean. And the complex itself was ideally located in a lovely area. Sorry for the negativity but was expecting more.

“Perfect little spot- all you could need”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2016

Really enjoyed our stay here. Apartment was ideal for our family of four, adult and teenage daughter and us! Really well equipped- there was nothing we needed that wasn't there. Fantastic fresh fish veg, fruit and meats at local mercado a short walk down the road. Many restraunts all serving delicious and reasonably priced food. Pool area very peaceful, and cleaned daily. Large enough for a good long swim, and children's pool / plunge pools separate. Never busy during our stay. Often had it to ourselves. Comfy clean loungers always available. Margarida was a very welcoming host. Met us on arrival and visited once during our 10 day stay to clean and change linen. Available at the end of phone if needed but we didn't as we were so happy there. Would return at the drop of a hat.

Dear Janet, thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you at out apartment. We hope we can welcome you again in a near future!
