The 1 bed apartment we stayed in as a couple was very large/ spacious and clean, no faults at all with the facilities. Our toaster wasn't working but that wasn't a problem as we just used the grill. We had requested a double bed but was provided with two singles, which we just pushed together. There were all the kitchen... More

The apartment was massive with everything you could wish for on a self catering holiday. Food very limited - only continental breakfast. Would not recommend as an all inclusive. Self catering works as two supermarkets not far away. Pool area a little tired with not enough parasols and mattresses left out whether raining or not so very soggy.

Complex basic but reasonable for the price. Safety deposit box in room which then costs, why do I think they should just charge deposit for the key??? A little distant from the beach but enjoyed many a stroll/chat to and fro.... Our 2 children are teenagers so the distance and slopes were not an issue except after several late nights... More

These apartments are very large indeed and are well kept and clean, if a little basic. Kitchen is well equipped with a microwave, full cooker and large fridge freezer. Plenty of sun beds around the pool and ample free parking.

We went on holidays for 7 nights to the south of Portugal the first week of October. Price was really cheap, around 50€ for 7 nights in our own self catering apartment (which was bigger than my own home). The area is kind of deserted in this time of the year, since there are only few tourists (thank you!), and... More

I revisited the Plaza Real this month It was much as it had been last time ,although I thought the reception staff were superb especially a young man whose name I missed. When we arrived it was quite early so we were offered the use of a room until ours was ready, this really was a good start as we... More

Just got back from this aparthotel yesterday and I'm quite satisfied. The rooms are big and cozy, there was a full kitchen with all you need and a bathroom with tub and bidet. Also a big balcony with sun most of the day. Mine even had a sea view. Quiet nights. Friendly staff, most of them speak English well. The... More
