This is our second trip to this apartment, once with a 9 month old baby and once before baby arrived. We have nothing but good things to say about the place.
Apartment is fully kitted out with all the mod cons, is clean and tidy and child friendly (travel cot and seat are on site for use). Only 20 paces to swimming pool with nice areas to chill out by pool or just outside apartment.
Vale de Para is a very nice place for eating out and having drinks with family. Restaurants are very reasonably priced and are all within walking distance from the apartment. Staff in all restaurants/bars are very friendly.
Beach is only 5/10 minutes drive away and is very clean and easily accessable.
Of course being the algarve lots of quality golf courses around and are easily reached if you have hired a car.
Overall i would recommend to any of my friends or family and will be going back in the futured.
