“Our Second Stay”
Reviewed July 13, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

Second time we've been lucky enough to stay in this modern, clean and bright apartment. It's located on the second floor of a quiet complex. A lift takes you to the front door and also to the basement car park. The parking area is large, secure and also very cool: a blessing for the time of year.

The 2 bed apartment is well appointed and really well looked after. Extra towels and even beach towels are provided. The management company made us feel really welcome and even allowed on this occasion a delayed check out.

The Dolce Gusto coffee machine proved to be a big hit this year: a tasty pick me up before strolling out to the waterfront and catching the water taxi across to the beach.

The apartment is only a short walk to the glorious Cabanas promenade. Numerous traditional restaurants from very affordable to gastronomic delights at not silly prices.

A newly refurbished Spar is 100 meters from the apartment. It is well stocked, not expensive plus the staff are extremely friendly, speaking English as if it was their mother tongue.

“Great apartment with lovely views”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is a lovely, modern and newly furnished apartment with a large living room that has a high vaulted ceiling which gives it a wonderful open feeling. There is free wi-fi (essential) and a decent TV with a whole host of European channels - there are also some English entertainment channels showing movies as well as a DVD player with a selection of movies.

The apartment has air conditioning in each bedroom and the living room - we did not have to use it for cooling but did sometimes use it for heating as our stay was over Easter.

The beds in the two bedrooms were firm but comfortable giving great support without feeling like you're sleeping on a board! There was adequate space for our clothes in the built in cupboards with plenty of clothes hangers. A nice touch is that you can store you suitcases under the beds (which are covered by a valance).

The two bedrooms/showers were clean and have a quality finish - a nice touch is that, as well as towel rails being provided, there are two large hooks behind each door to hang your towel or bathrobe.

The kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances, crockery and utensils that are required for a holiday. There is also a coffee pod machine which was very handy for a morning coffee, especially to have with our pastel de natas from the local bakery! A kettle and toaster were some other great added extras. However we didn't have to use many other of the appliances such as the oven, since the restaurants along the promenade are so good and great value for money! We did however have to turn up the cooling on the fridge since that was set quite low - this may have been due to the apartment not being used over the winter though.

There is a lift which is very convenient - means you don't have to haul your suitcase up two flights of stairs. The lift also goes to the basement where there is a car park and it also provides access to the condominium's swimming pool. The apartment is at the further end of the complex away from the swimming pool so one is not subjected to the cacophony of noise from the pool - this allowed us to have a relaxing time on the balcony whilst reading the paper and drinking our coffee!

The best bit about the apartment is the upper roof terrace which has magnificent views over the Formosa River and sea. There is a small table and two chairs so we would spend many a late afternoon having a sun downer whilst admiring the view. There are two sun loungers which allows for private sunbathing since the terrace is not overlooked.

There was a pothole right outside the front door of the apartment block so my wife and I had to watch our step each time we went out - however, I'm sure that this is a council issue and hopefully has been rectified.

A few minutes away from the apartment is the main promenade in Cabanas. This boardwalk stretches from one side of Cabanas to the other and is a pleasant walk alongside the Formosa River. On the opposite side of the road are a great variety of bars, restaurants, a bakery (for the pastel de nata) and cash machines. We ate at a different restaurant each evening and enjoyed quality food at very reasonable prices. A favourite of ours was the Sabores da Ria - we loved the mixed grill fish but be warned it is a lot of fish!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Cabanas and simply loved the apartment.

“Outstanding Holiday Apartment, couldn't wish for a better holiday home”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Wow! what a wonderful surprise to find we had booked a truly awesome apartment for our first ever holiday in Portugal, The meet and greet staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the apartment and the Cabanas Beach Club Resort condominium.

Air conditioning in both bedrooms as well as the lounge plus even the underground parking was cooled! All the mod-cons you could wish for, free wifi, very nice TV, not that we watched much! Large size fridge and washing machine. All appliances are new and the apartment is exceptionally clean, modern, quiet and very liveable…a real home from home.

The apartment is on the top (2nd floor) with lovely views. A nice feature for getting the suitcases and baby stroller up and down was having a lift that stops right outside the front door of the apartment and which is also accessible from the private covered parking area.

Literally two minutes walk from the apartment and you are in the small town of Cabanas. It is an idyllic place, originally a small fishing village. It is clean as is the marina and fantastic promenade: beautiful for evening strolls and for access to the boat taxis that ferry you across to the beach…only a two minute ride. The beach is long, unspoilt and simply glorious and it is watched over by several qualified life savers. The water is calm and ideal for young children.

Cabanas town boasts some exceptional restaurants all well priced serving local and international cuisine A particular favourite for us was the Principal restaurant for its exceptional sushi spreads.

Only ten minutes by car and you are in the historic town of Tavira. Very romantic, beautiful paved walking areas and loads of eateries and stylish tapas bars. We also found a most amazing new shopping mall in Tavira and spent an afternoon checking out all the local shops, but also letting out little one run wild on all the kiddies amusements and adventure areas.

A holiday we will never forget and an apartment that truly exceeded all our expectations.
