Myself, My Wife and 2 Kids aged 13 and 12 stayed at Cantinho Do Mar from June 9th - 23rd. I have to say that I got exactly what I searched for. I was looking for an affordable family break for 2 weeks and after searching and reviewing accommodation in the lower price bracket we chose these apartments and were... More

My partner & I with 4 kids stayed for 1 week from 13/8/14. The rooms are very spacious however basic but have all you require ie tv micro cooker fridge freezer for a self catering hol.

The pool area was nice enough. The accommodation was extremely basic,... More

We stayed here with our 3 young children(aged 6,4,2) and LOVED it! We got a HUGE apartment&the bedrooms were laid out in such a way that hubby&i still had full use of kitchen/living areas&balconies even when kids were asleep. Furniture&utensils were basic but we had everything we needed and had a cleaning service/towel change every day which we weren't expecting!!... More

Fantastic place to stay. A 15min walk to The Strip one way and the Old Town the other way. Apartments were very spacious and extremely clean. In a private street so very quiet and peaceful. We had a room at the back which overlooked the swimming pool below and green forestry over the fence with the sea in the background.... More

My sister and I took my mum here for her birthday in September 2012. The apartment block doesn't look like much from the outside but i have never stayed in such a spacious apartment! It was excellent value for money. Downsides were that the decor and furniture is slightly outdated, there was no kettle (we boiled water for a cuppa... More

We stayed here the last 2 weeks in Aug, the apartments are in a fantastic location next to modelo shopping centre. Some of the furniture etc is quite worn but the location and size of the apartments are great. No rushing for sun beds in the morning :-) I would definitely recommend these apartments .

The nice daughter/sister that I am :) I paid for me, my mum & my sister to go here for a week in June 2010. The price was very good, & we wasn't disappointed once we got there.
