“Best holiday ever”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2013

We had a great holiday. Would not agree location is at largest roundabout in town. Its a very quiet area. Sun room is brilliant. Air con a real treat. Built in radio system. Dishwasher, fridge freezer and basically everything you would have at home, which is ideal when travelling with young children. Gale beach is just breath taking and within walking distance. The chipper 100 yards away will prepare chicken piri piri chips and salad for 5 adults for €20 which we enjoyed on the very large balcony in the evenings. Fernando is just across the street for a drink in the evening. Shops very close for groceries but we stocked up on arrival at Albuferia Shopping Centre which is quiet close too. There are large art pieces on all roundabouts which make it easy to find your way around. Would recommend this apartment.

“A bit disappointing but still a good holiday”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2012

Stayed for 10 days over August/Sept 2011. We were really looking forward to staying in an apartment which had been described as 'luxurious topfloor'. On arrival we were very disappointed to realise the huge balcony was right on top of the busiest roundabout in town which obviously isn't mentioned in the listing. The traffic noise wasn't too bad at night but in the day it was horrendous so not much point trying to have a sunbathe after a long day out exploring! The apartment itself would have been perfect if it wasn't for this. Also there was no soap, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls, washing up liquid etc provided as the listing states. We aren't used to having to buy things like that on holiday! Not really a massive problem but worth noting. Washing machine was a massive bonus though, nice to be able to wash beach towels etc. Also the air con was heavenly! Car hire is essential if you are staying here as you aren't near anything. Few restaurants within walking distance, best one by far was the little Italian place where all the staff were really friendly and the food was the best we had in Portugal. The owner (Fabian) was very helpful when I kept asking him questions and didn't seem to mind me asking silly questions (I was a bit nervous having never booked an apartment holiday before). To sum up - this was a good holiday but not great. I wouldn't stay in Vale De Parra again if we ever came back to Portugal. But then I'm not sure we ever would come back to Portugal as it wasn't exactly what we were expecting.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review my apartment. I truly value the opinions of my customers and I apologise that the apartment did not meet your expectations. Apart from the noise issue I’m glad to hear from your review that everything else was to your liking. I use the apartment each year for my own holiday break with my family and have never been bothered by the traffic noise. I’ll pay close attention to it next time I’m there and see is there anything I can do. Again, thank you for your review. Fabian

“fantastic apartment in brilliant location”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2011

this apart has everything you need for a self catering break, the washing machine was really handy and decorated to a high standard. we were 10 mins from nearest town of aubuferia which has lots of places to eat n shops. we were 5mins drive from gale beach and was fantastic the kids 10 11 12 loved the waves and sand there is zoomarine within 10 mins drive which has lots of shows n the diving and dolphins are a must see. a water park again 10 mins away which we loved oh and the kids did too.........the apart is very smart clean complex n very secure with under ground parking which is a god send in the mid august heat...cannot love this place anymore, was huge with the best balcony n sun room ever, we spent all our time out there drinking superbock the local beer till late at night. it is on a roundabout but not noisey enough to bother anyone really.......i would not hesitate to book again and will be doinf so for next year x
