Last year we visited for the first time & we came back this September. Absolutely amazing, we got a free upgrade with our studio. Which was even better! The view, pool, restaurant & all the staff is more then you can ask for. Restaurant is mostly busy, so make a reservation! I traveled a lot, but never met someone like César. He wants all the best for the guest, everyone loves him! Gives you a real 5 star service. Hope to visit again :)!
We have stayed at Algar Seco a number of times and had wonderful holidays, the accommodation is lovely, spacious, clean, comfortable (lumpy and hard pillows apart) and in a beautiful setting. This year however we discovered that the Bistro had been franchised, so has in effect become a public restaurant (bar?). We ate there first night when they were empty but discovered that lunchtimes are completely blocked, mostly it seems by a steady stream of non resident visitors who occupy the tables for the entire afternoon, often in large groups. Every time we enquired we were told "fully booked" At all times there is a 'reserved" sign on every single table, it would appear to allow staff can welcome their regulars (not Algar Seco paying guests like us) . We spoke to reception but next morning (at 10.00 when the pool area was still unoccupied) the message was the same, except of a comment "yes we know you complained, maybe an hour max from 1-2 is OK". A secondary point, my wife found it particularly uncomfortable entering the pool or using the pool shower 2 metres from a group of 8-9 mostly males dressed in outside clothes (not holiday attire). The pool at Algar Seco is a wonderful facility but it is not for us anymore, we prefer to go somewhere more private and somewhere where we are welcomed as paying guests. The walk to buy lunch at the supermarket to get lunch at a welcoming restaurant is 10 minutes!!!!…
We stayed here in July for 10 days with our kids (13, 11 & 5) and had the best time! The kids loved the pool and the diving board, our 2 bed bungalow was fantastic, the accommodation was so clean and kitchen had everything you would need. The location of the resort is what we loved its within walking distance of restaurants and the beach, the bistro on site is really good and the staff in the resort were so helpful, the older kids loved the cliff jumping off the algar seco daily. We cannot wait to return next year already booked 😊
Exceptional and friendly service. Have been lucky to have enjoyed many superb holidays at Algar Seco Parque over the years. This year was no exception. On arrival Marion showed us our recently renovated apartment. It was very well equipped with a fantastic view. Great air conditioning and the housekeeping was first class, as usual. Cannot praise the staff highly enough. From making the initial booking to our check out it was fantastic. Without doubt a home from home for the two weeks we stayed.
Me and my partner stayed at Algar Seco Parque for a week and we had the best time here. The resort is close to Praia De Carvoeiro and Praia de Vale Covo and very close to the city center, restaurants and grocery stores. The resort looks very beautiful, lots of palms trees and flowers and beautiful architecture. From the moment we came in we were greeted by a very friendly and professional staff who took us to our bungalow which was about 5 min walk from the reception. The room was spotless clean and very nicely furnished in the Portuguese style. It was also very private and quiet. The terrace was stunning, with great sea views, trees and a small garden with flowers that smelled beautiful at night. We had sunbeds, chairs, table and an umbrella on the terrace which was also very big. In the kitchen we had everything we needed, great appliances that looked like new, lots of cutlery and storage space. In the bathroom we had soap and shampoo that was refilled everytime the cleaning lady came which was everyday except Thursday and Sunday. We had two free drinks at the bistro as a welcome gift, a very nice shopping bag, a map with things to do nearby and restaurants and when we left we received a cute little pouch with Portuguese sea salt. The pool and bistro were also amazing with a panoramic view of the sea. You had plenty of space to swim in the pool and there was also a diving board. We were given clean towels from the bistro everyday and there were plenty of sunbeds to use. The food and service at the bistro was excellent. We never met such friendly staff before, they really made our stay much better and the food was delicious, big portions and not expensive. This resort made our holiday amazing and we will recommend to everyone who wants some peace and quiet, amazing food, amazing views and amazing people.…
This is my 4th time here and it continues to be my very favourite place to stay in Carvoeiro. It’s spotlessly clean and is a very well presented resort. Restaurant is also superb. Pool is beautiful and the whole resort and grounds are looked after immaculately. I know I’ll be staying here many times more!!!!
Really good to be back and just a fantastic trip all round with my family. Attention to detail here is very impressive. The quality of accommodation, as well as direct views across the sea are superb. Our T2 apartment has all you could ever need on holiday and was very spacious. Touched when the team left a hand written card and bottle of bubbly for my son's 18th birthday. A gem of a place in the Algarve, with exceptional standards of customer care and first class facilities.
We absolutely loved this place! It's spacious, cosy, romantic and relaxing. The apartment has a full sea view, a large balcony and a fire place. There's several pools and beautiful parks around the apartments. Everything is very clean and the reception staff are friendly and helpful. The location is perfect right between the board walk to Carvoeiro and the hiking path to the lighthouse. We're looking forward to coming back here.
So good to be back. The bungalow was lovely. So clean and well kept. No request too small. The Bistro was great for drinks, breakfast and lunch. We will be back.
Every once in a while you book an accommodation that exceeds your expections. And that is Algar Seco for me. The accommodation is exactly as beautiful as shown on the photo’s. We were happy to find friendly and helpfull staff, a very clean and well equipped apartment at a wonderful location near the cost and on walking distance of restaurants. A fire place in the room but also airco, top mattresses on request, a shower with great water pressure (lacking in many places), mosquito screens in every window (and not teared apart as I have seen so many times) comfortable furniture on the balcony, brand new pots and pans in the kitchen, free towels at the pool and, as cherry on the pie, daily cleaning service including dish washing. We have had a splendid time and are already planning the next stay.…
