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

We have just returned from a week at the Apartmentos Os Descobrimentos. We rented a 2 bed apartment for myself, my husband and our 19 year old daughter. Well, what a fabulous apartment! Really big, spotlessly clean and so well-equipped but the VIEW!!!! We called it our "house in the sky" - like being in an eagle's nest without the... More

The apartments are wonderful. This was our fifth visit and we have only ever stayed at the Apartamentos Os Descobrimentos. As others have said, the views are lovely, the staff are very helpful and if they can, they will let you stay in your room a bit later so you can shower after the beach before you head to the...
