Very clean, well furnished, good beds, well equipped kitchen. Good Wi-Fi. So, everything really fine but I would say it's a little bit too expensive - 115 EUR per night for 2 adults. (one kid free sleeping with us). There are more Brits in Burgau than Poles in London, so, probably that's the reason and 115EUR doesn't sound so much... More

Spent 5 days and could spend more. Good size of apartment with separate bedroom and kitchen. Large bathroom. Good size of the balcony overlooking the ocean and village. Basic equipment in the kitchen. Nice pool area , access by the restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise that the apartment was cleaned and towels changed after 3 nights. No washing machine... More

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment early June this year. It was the most fabulous location! Burgau is an unspoiled little town with apartments, restaurants, cafe and houses leading down to the beautiful beach. Burgau has whatever you need for amenities, restaurants and groceries, however for shopping you need to venture into Lagos... More

We stayed in a two-person apartment at Os Descobrimentos with a great view of Burgau and its beach. It was our first visit to Burgau, we were enchanted by this cozy, quiet village which has avoided excessive growth and modernization. The apartment was comfortably furnished, lots of beautiful dark wood armoires and chests. While talking to fellow travelers at dinner,... More

We stayed for two weeks at Easter this year and will definitely be back. Burgau was a perfect, unspoilt and beautiful village. The apartment was extremely well appointed with everything that you could possibly need. We were very happy and impressed. Everything was very clean, comfortable and positioned to really give the most amazing views of the bay. I can't... More

I was so happy to find this place after a very unpleasant experience somewhere else. The management was super laid back and always helpful, including letting me check out a couple of hours late without charge. I was travelling on my own, hoping to get some writing done, and the sound of the surf in the background and walks down... More

This was our sixth stay in these apartments and we have already booked for next year! The apartments have an amazing view over the beach and the village and you can sit on your balcony and watch the world go by. The apartments themselves are spotlessly clean and well serviced and have everything you need for a self catering holiday.... More

We rented a 3 bed villa for 2 couples so we would have more space and we are pleased we did. Both bedrooms at the front had a shared balcony and views mostly looking towards Burgau town rather than directly out to sea. It was a windy spot and did not lend itself to sitting outside once the sun had... More

Great spot and very clean apartment. Nice, friendly, helpful service from the staff. Terrific views and perfectly located for the village amenities. If you have never been here before, the wind blows - a lot. This is not a bad thing, but you need to know in advance. Outside of the high Summer, the wind will be chilly while the... More
