Secure apartments, 20 min walk down hill to the Old Town, nothing immediate area of apartments. We use Algarve Getaways, apartment Or-IA, we have used about 5 times normally over the New Yer period, and it is so quiet. The service we get from this company is excellent, they arrange transfer for us and it is nice to see a... More

This is a top class complex with apartments finished to a high spec. but unfortunately we stayed in block A which is next to a motorway. Although the bedroom window had shutters we still found it difficult to sleep at night due to road noise. The one bedroom penthouse apartment had a large lounge area with wall to floor windows...

Apartment C2B The apartment was excellent. Very spacious for a one bedroomed apartment, spotlessly clean with good quality furnishings…..except the bed. My golly, the double bed has the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever tried to sleep on. We put 2 duvets under the bottom sheet to try and give a bit of padding but it was still extremely hard...

This is a wonderful apartment, great location, quiet area, great views over the marina. Very spacious, beautifully decorated, large balcony doors from bedroom, kitchen and lounge lead onto it. Found this on Owners Direct site No P5806, would highly recommend it. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners Karen and Mark, emails answered promptly. We had a wonderful holiday... More

Stayed here for a week at the beginning of August. Really pleased with the apartment and the complex facilities. There are two pools in the complex, the upper one very shallow and purely for kids. Grounds are very well maintained and secure as a key is needed to enter. We had a car so it wasn't a problem but the... More

Lovely place to stay. Very clean, staff extremely nice and helpful, perfect for families. I would definitely go back. Quite far from the beach though but lovely pool on the site. Good quality for the price.

We stayed here for 1 week at the end of August. The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed including an umbrella for the pool - there aren't any provided by the pool. The welcome pack from Algarve getaways was a lovely gesture. We also booked our transfers with Algarve getaways and the driver we had... More

Just returned from a 7 night stay as a family of 4. Complex is just as everyone else says - clean, safe, amazing pools(cold!) Walk is fine into old town- going towards courts opposite the apartment and keeping to the right going down steps. Walk back is uphill,but not too steep, but we did this every day, sometimes twice. We... More
