It has a modern kitchen and everything you need for a longer stay is supplied i.e. iron, ironing board, washing machine, fans etc. The apartment is a duplex so your lounge and kitchen is downstairs, and two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The beauty of this is that when you are sleeping at night there is no noise from someone renting below you. Views from the apartment are stunning. Having tried other apartments on this complex we certainly consider this to be one of the best in terms of cleanliness/views and the apartment in general has modern touches with a large flat screen tv, modern kitchen, large corner sofa etc. Also the owner is a really friendly guy who will do anything to help you, and his prices are extremely competitive. We have stayed at least five times now, and will always book this apartment if staying in Portugal.see more

Huge indoor living space, very cool even without switching on the air conditioning. Fantastically equipped, great master suite upstairs with beautiful balcony. All very nice bedrooms, the villa just has a great sense of space. Very modern kitchen with everything you could need. The inside is only surpassed by the outside, large gardens - great for playing with the kids! Great outdoor seating and dining area, large BBQ and the pool is fantastic , great size, nice depth in the shallow end for kids and close enough to the seating and sun beds that the kids can be kept an eye on from where you are. Local area has everything you need, a shop and a few bars and restaurants and the marina is only a 20 min walk away. This villa is great for families but would also suit groups of friends. We will definitely be back for another stay!! Owners very helpful prior to our stay and the villa manager can't do enough to help you during your stay. Just perfect.see more

                                                                                  We enjoyed our stay in Sao Rafael. The garden at the apartment is amazing and so beautiful. The children enjoyed playing out and I enjoyed relaxing there. The apartment to was clean and we'll prepared when we arrived. Well decorated and very comfortable. The complex is quite and relaxed. At the pool they have a cafe/bar which is run by a Portuguese family. Servicentral is extremely slow but that's due to lack of staff for the amount of people there.I heard the cafe wasn't open last year so I think there just getting the hang of things. There hospitality was great though and werelated very friendly. The local beach is about 15 mins walk andown is so picturesque and beautiful but was very busy (August). Restraunt there was very expensive and the que to get served for drinks etc was leading to the beach. There isn't a lot for children to do within walking distance so if you have children I recommend hiring a car. Supermarket is not within walking distance and you will need a taxi if you don't have a car which costs 22 euro return. There is a local shop but it's time you and doesn't have much in it. The old town and Marina are worth visit. The old town is very busy and has a lot going on. It's like London. It's so big and so many restaurants and shops. It was heaving. The marina is quite and has a blow up slide and trampolines for the children as well as an arcade. Carla who looks after the guests and the apartment is lovely and couldn't do enough to help us. She arranged taxis and a transfer to the supermarket. We had her number and Carla told us to call for anything we needed. Such a nice lady.see more

The balcony has a sea view perfect to sit on on an evening with a nice glass of wine. The pool and beach all close by (5-10 mins walk) .I would recommend hiring a car as there are many many places to visit around the area.see more

                                                                                  Wonderful location

                                                                                  During our week's stay we visited quite a few other beaches east and west of Albufeira, but the beach at San Rafael was definitely the best, and in such easy reach of our accommodation too! A five minute amble is all it took to get there. We were out of season but can imagine that the car park at the beach would be packed in the summer, so this easy access is a real advantage. The apartment is tastefully furnished with a living room leading to a sheltered balcony from which the sea can be seen. The balcony is not overlooked by any other building. The kitchen and bathroom are both tiled in traditional Portuguese tiles which add charm and character to the place. The bathroom is spacious, and the shower (over the bath) is easy to use, with hot water supplied from a boiler in the kitchen that worked efficiently. The kitchen had all we needed for our stay - we were 4 adults and a child. There is a freezer which we didn't use and other items such as iron and ironing board. We were pleased to find that there was Sky TV and a DVD player. Wifi was available for a small fee at the pool area during office hours. We were grateful that we had brought our satnav (a TomTom) as it helped us to find our way efficiently to many places of interest in the locality. However, it wasn't so good at getting us out of town centres, once taking us on a route we now look back on in embarrassment! We could have hired a high chair and a cot from the site's office, but at just over 6 euros per day per item we chose to bring our own travel cot for our 2 year old grandson and we managed without a high chair. The apartment helpfully provided two sets of buckets and spades! There was also plenty of helpful information about the area.see more

                                                                                  We stayed at Sao Rafael apartment in mid July. The apartment was perfect for our family of four. The location was perfect with only a 5 minute walk to Sao Rafael beach. Located at the end of the beach is a rental hut where you can hire paddle boards etc. We used the paddle bout a number of times. Also located on the beach is a restaurant. We had a great meal at the tapas located on the road to Gale beach, only 20mins walk. The pool in the estate was fantastic with a shallow and deep end reaching down to a depth of 2.7metres. By the pool they also provided sun beds and inside a pool table, toilets, coffee machine, vending machine and sitting area. The apartment was modern, and had a spacious balcony that had a slight view of the sea. You will need beach towels. Geoff and Lynne provided excellent information about the area and the directions from Faro airport to the apartment and information about the apartment was spot on. We recommend going to Slide and Splash Water Park. Our family enjoyed the whole day there. Queues can be long though so arrive early. We got a lot of use out of our hire car but an option may be to split the hire (e.g hire in 2nd week) if you intend exploring beyond the local area. Always try and bring sun umbrellas with you in the car because you never know when they will come in handy. Thankfully the apartment provided a couple of them. They also provided a couple of boogie boards, buckets and spades and lilos which we used often. We defiantly would consider staying again next year. Murray and familysee more

                                                                                  We had a great stay, the apartment was comfortable, good air-con, all we needed, lovely terrace with BBQ. The complex was just what we wanted - excellent pool, with access all day and up to around 7.30pm; excellent cafe for food, drinks, ices, really friendly owners. It's a quiet area approx. 45 minutes walk from the old town of Albufeira. Some times we walked to the beaches, 20-30 minutes. We recommend eating at La Sardinha on the Praia Dos Arrifes beach (booking not always needed). We also walked to the Marina a few times (there is a supermarket near here too), this took 20-30 minutes walk. Lots of cafes and bars, plus we took a boat trip from here and saw dolphins. We took a taxi into the old town of Albufeira - it's bustling, lots of stalls/shops and restaurants. All-in all a great 10 days. There are many different nationalities staying in the complex and we made some lovely friends whilst resting around the pool. Thanks to the owners who were very helpful throughout the entire process.see more

The vila was well equipped,clean and in a secure location which was very important to us as we had 2 infants. The pool was great, not too busy this time of the year so it felt as though it was a private pool. Less than 10/15 mins to Old & New town, about 20 mins to Guia for Zoomarine and the shopping mall. The local area has plenty of restaurants, an English pub and a local shop for additional bits. Would definitely recommendsee more
