“Friendly, cute and great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We stayed for 5 nights in Sol a Sul apartments and had a great time. It fulfilled all our needs. A very clean and spacious apartment, less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and the lively main square - the perfect holiday destination! The owner is very warm and friendly and willing to help too!

This apartment ticked all the boxes for us on our first family holiday to the Algarve.
We needed to :-
1. Be close to a beach that was big enough to have a decent walk on.
2. Be close to resturaunts/coffee bars/ shops.
3. Have a balcony. and swimming pool.
4. Have decent wi-fi at no extra charge.
5. Be within an hours drive to Faro airport.
I would definitly return here and would reccomend it, the apartment was huge and very comfortable, Fernando was most helpful also.

Just back from a 6 night stay at Sol a sul.
Apartments are very clean and spacish and we had a beautiful sea view. The location is perfect 5minute walk to old beach and old town square so no need for taxis.The pool area is great and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend these apartments.

These apartments are wonderful! The actual apartment was very large, with a full kitchen and a fairly nice bathroom. The pool looked nice, however we did not use it. The price was very reasonable, and the owner was so helpful! He also arranged a car to the airport for us for a reasonable price, and made several restaurant recommendations. Its in a great location, close to everything but far enough away from the noisy streets. Free wi-fi.

Just got back from a week at the Sol a Sul apartments and had a great time. Fernando who runs the place is really friendly and helpful. When you arrive at the apartments (we got Fernando to book the transfer for us - €35.00 to the door) they don't look much from the outside, but don't be downhearted. There is no grand reception and the hallways are decorated in quite a quirky way, but we really appreciated the lack of the normal sterile decoration of most hotels. We were offered the choice of two flats and chose number 7 on the third floor. The flat was large and airy with a good sized balcony that looked out over the pool and towards the sea. The flat was really well equipped with microwave/grill, hob, toaster, kettle, and coffee maker. There was plenty of storage space for clothes, and the bed was really comfortable. Five to ten minutes walk gets you into the Old Town with lots of bars and restaurants, though quite a few were closed in January. All in all a great holiday and would definitely recommend Sol a Sul.
