“It was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We were travelling to Albufeira in first week of April to see the Rally Portugal. The weather was rainy, when we arrived, but we knew it before so it was no surprise :) The room was clean and very well equipped. The room was bit humid, so the air conditioner worked all night long. The service was excellent. We didn't have wi-fi when we arrived, but it was organized very quickly to our room. The beach was near, the foodstore accross the road. They had an extra bed for baby organized very quickly.

Room Tip: We had appartment nr 5 and had two balconies. One to the pool and one to the sea.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Stayed here the week before Easter 2014, so mid April. Run be a lovely couple,the place is very tidy,with well maintained gardens and pool.
We had an apartment on the top floor,which had a good sea view. We were able to sleep with both patio doors wide open at night,and it was possible to head the sound of the Atlantic hitting the beach, very restful.
Apartment was very clean, had an oven,microwave,hob,washing machine,fridge/freezer. One bedroom,open plan lounge and kitchen,large balcony with sea views.
The wi-fi was on the wonk when I was there, but here's a handy tip. The Apolonia supermarket,which is just across the road from the apartments, is not large,but is very smart,with a good choice of all you will be likely to need. Attached to this,is the Apolonia cafe, which apart from selling fantastic cakes etc. has a free wi-fi. As do most of the beach bars,just buy something and ask for the passport.
This is a lovely apartment block, set in nice grounds,clean,and easy walking distance to the beach and Restaurants. So leave the car parked up, walk around Gale, try the (3) beach bars, the fantastic beach,and just have some quality time. I know that I did.

Room Tip: The rooms numbered from 200 have the sea views, but all rooms have some thing good.

Had a week at Debimar apartments Sept 2013. These apartments are in a relatively quiet area of Gale, they are well maintained, clean and well equipped. For the money I think you'll struggle to find better, there is a good sized pool which is pretty deep so not suitable for very small children ( no splash pool) but great for swimming, there is a good grass area around the pool and sun beds and umbrellas supplied. There is a waitrose type supermarket opposite (appolonia) which has a popular small cafe. The beaches are within a 5 min stroll and typical Algarve golden sand and several beach side restaurants.

Room Tip: Top floors would have better sea view but it's not that important, they all have a balcony

I just spent the first week in September at the Debimar apartments and would recommend these apartments to anyone looking a quiet holiday in the sun. The apartments are basic but contains all modcons for an enjoyable stay. They are spotless and cleaned every other day. The living room was spacous and comfortable; the kitchen was ideal; the bedroom was comfortable and spacous too. The balcony was also sizable and great for having breakfast/lunch/dinner or for just having a few drinks. The supermarket was directly opposite the apartments and the beach a five minute walk. I also have to mention the staff at the reception as they were friendly and helpful. However one should be aware of the lack of public transport too. This means hiring taxis to the old and new town which cost around 10 euros. This did stop us from having a great time at this loveky location.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

We stayed at the Debimar Apartments in Gale for the last two weeks of May 2012.

Although basic the apartments had a washing machine, toaster, kettle, microwave, coffee machine, full oven and hob - all of which we have had to pay extra for on other holidays.

The pool and complex area was well maintained and although there were no 'in house' shopping facilities and Apolonia Supermarket was just across the road and the range of goods on sale there was extensive - especially the fresh veg and meat which was very reasonably price so this resulted in our eating 'at home' on quite a few occassions as it was a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest restaurant.

We were fortunate to have been given a 1 bedroomed apartment with two balconies which meant we could follow the sun round - having breakfast on one and the evening meal on the other.

Once you discovered the short cuts it was only a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach - we didn't venture too far into the sea as it was rather cold but we only had one day of showers during the whole fortnight so this meant that we could accomplish the walks - to both ways - from the beach and these were most enjoyable. ~The one to the left being a cliff walk with may ups and downs (we ended up at Albufeira Marina) and the one to the right a beach walk - again very enjoyable.

There were no tourist shops in the area so this might be disappointing for some people and tourinst information was limited but car hire facilities were available if needed - the local buses were few and far between and taxis hard to find.

Room Tip: Ours was apartment number 5 with one bedroom - above us were the studios.

We stayed here for a beach hoilday and it couldn't have been better. The apartment was old fashioned but clean and well equipt. It was cleaned several times during our one week stay. The pool was great as it was May and quite we had it more or less to ourselves. The lady who runs the apartments was lovely and even offered us an upgraded appartment with a better view. We hired a car I belive a must if you stay in Gale as there is not much public transport. We travelled to many of the nearby beaches and enjoyed exploring the area. The highlight of our trip was dinner in Gallerdos the bar at Gale beach where locals enjoying a jam session as the sunset and the food was great but cost very little. This is ideal if you have a sence of adventure and are not looking for a typical boozie holiday.

We stayed at these apartments in August 2008 for one week. The location is superb approximately 5 minutes walk to the beach and directly opposite the Apolina supermarket.

There were a number of restuarants all within a 5 to 10 minute walk.

The apartments are traditional portugese and a little dated but they were extremely clean and the kitchen was very modern and well equipped. We stayed at No 5 which benefited from two balconies, one overlooking the swimming pool and the other looking towards the sea.

Although unheated the pool was a very large size for the apartments and cleaned everyday.

Whilst there we had our apartment cleaned at least twice and had our towels changed four times.

The portugese lady in reception was extremely friendly and helpful and was always looking to ensure that we had no problems during our stay.

We would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments for a basic self catering holiday or returning again in the future.
