First time doing a private let and was not disappointed. Central location only 10 min walk to "strip" . Modern, clean and peaceful development. Our apartment was like a home from home fully kitted out and very secure. Would recommend for couples or families, was lovely!

just returned from holiday and was very pleased with the apartment we rented and the complex. the rooms are very spacious and the block we were in (37) wasn't too close to the road so noise didn't affect us when we were inside or by the pool. each block has its own swimming pool and you can't use each others so you have to make the right choice before you book. the place was clean and was given a good clean midway through our holiday. its very close to the strip and local transport so you can get around very easily. we had no problems getting sunbeds around the pool although in August that might be very different? we made a late booking and paid £750 for 2 bed for 2 weeks which was great value we would go again

Room Tip: be careful which block you choose as some apartments/pools very close to the dual carriageway

Our family of 4 (kids aged 13 and 10) stayed in apartment 43F for 9 days in July and really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment had milk, wine, water etc in for us when we arrived which was lovely and Julie showed us where everything was. The pools were great and the girls were outside all day playing with new friends. The apartment had everything we needed, and was clean and spacious with gorgeous furnishings. It was nice being on the ground floor, just gives easier access the pool. There are a couple of small shops within walking distance, we did a big grocery shop on the first day of our holiday and got a taxi back to Parque da Corcavada. We got a taxi (4 euro) most nights over to the old town for dinner and didn't need a car at all which was lovely.

To save anyone reading the rest of this review first let me say that I and my family absolutely loved these apartments. We stayed in Block 40 apartment 2F, which we booked through Owners Direct (Ref P9261). The owner of the apartment, Marcus, was excellent and provided all the information we needed. Others may disagree, but from looking around the whole Corcovada complex I would say that these apartments are situated in the best position, i.e. not near the main road, but close enough when you want to walk into town etc. On that point, I would say it took us about 10 mins to walk to the Strip with the kids. I walked to the beach on my own one day and it took me about 15 mins, but I wouldn’t have taken the kids as it was too far in the heat. As has been said in numerous other reviews I felt that the complex was safe for our children (aged 2 & 4) and we could let them play around the pool area without fear of them wandering off onto a road. The apartments we stayed in were decorated to a very high standard and all of the fixtures and fittings are first class.

In terms of out and about; we got take-away at the chicken place on the complex on the night we arrived as it was late. The prices were very reasonable and the chicken was really tasty. Other places of note that we ate at were: Os Compadres - Montechoro strip: tourist menu = 7 euro = happy tourists, Gondola - Montechoro strip: tasty Italian and kids eat free before 8ish. Also the owner/manager lives in Corcovada complex and is really friendly, Os Arcos - Old Town: we got a night off from kids so spent a “romantic” evening here. Food was really good in a traditional atmosphere, reasonably priced and the owner was very friendly.

We normally like to try different holiday destinations but if I were to return to Albufeira I would definitely stay here. Also, I found the prices in Portugal very reasonable (for eating out, beer etc), when compared to other places such as Greece.

The holiday was brilliant. The apartment was clean and modern but just a little far from amenities when travelling with small kids. The transfer company we used wer yellowfish.com and they wer fantastic. The drivers wer friendly and helpful and also gave us a free bottle of wine. Would definitely use them again next yr.
