Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stayed in apt 2c block 40 in the Corcovada apartments for a week in July and had a great time. The apartment has every thing that you could possibly need ( toaster,toasted sandwich maker, fully fitted kitchen,two bedrooms and two bathrooms ) and was just spotlessly clean. It is a relatively new development so very modern. Mike the owner was very helpful, organised transfers and left us lots of little tips about the local area. Some comments have been made about people reserving sunbeds at the pool but we did not find this a problem - yes people did leave towels out from the early hours but the pool attendant just moved them if there was no one there and moved the sunbeds for who ever required them. There was no cleaner for the week that we were there but that was great as it meant we didn't have to nudge our teenagers out of bed in the morning and we washed the towels ourselves. Pool towels are provided. The complex is very close to the strip - about 6 or 7 minutes walking but at the quiet end away from the nite clubs so ideal for families. We loved all of the restaurants and found a lovely little Italian one with ice cream parlour around the corner.A taxi to the old town was a very reasonable 5 euros so we went there on alternate nights. It was eighteen years since we last visited Albuferia but we will certainly go back and we were just sorry we didn't book for two weeks. When we do go back it will be to the Corcovado and have added Mikes details to our address book - apt 2c was the best we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Be careful as some blocks have to cross the road for their pool.

We stayed in the penthouse apartment PC-43-3D for 2 weeks and it was fabulous! It is furnished to a high standard and was spotlessly clean on arrival. It was also cleaned 3 days after we arrived and the towels were changed and again at the end of the week when the bedding was changed and the towels again. The accommodation was excellent with very spacious rooms and the welcome pack of essentials when we arrived was greatly appreciated. The L shaped balcony is enormous and the views are lovely. The garden and pool area is good, the only drawbacks being all the large inflatables in the pool and the same people who always booked loungers early in the morning and didn't appear until much later on but this happens everywhere! The complex is very secure and safe as the main outer door to it is also locked and each apartment has its own key to this as well as the apartment. The only reason I have rated this as very good and not excellent is because the shower cubicle in the bathroom (not the en suite) is very small and it was easy to nudge the temperature lever meaning you could get scalded or frozen!! We booked this through Algarve Getaways and their service was second to none from the very beginning when making enquiries to the end when we were picked up to be taken back to the airport. They arranged private pick up and we were met on arrival at the apartment block and shown round and given all information necessary. The complex is within easy walking distance of the Strip which has many, many restaurants to choose from and lots of the usual shops to browse around. The walk to the old town takes a good half hour but taxis are easy to get hold of and only cost around 6 euros. We hired a car for 1 week from ZIT AUTO who were excellent - it was only 160 euros for the week which we thought was very good value. All in all we had a wonderful holiday and have been recommending Algarve Getaways and Parque da Corcovada to all our friends. We would most certainly return there if we decide on another holiday to Portugal.

I stayed here in July 2013. Highly recommend these apartments. Clean, well equipped, good location, very sucure & quiet area. I had a three bedroom apartment which was very spacious. I did speak to others with two bedroom apartments & they found them quite small. I suspose you get what you pay for. I have to agree with other reviews about the rules. The same people went out early each morning & reserved the sunbeds with their towels even reserving sunbeds for their young children & many of these beds never seemed to be used, but I wouldn't let that spoil my holiday. Nice walk to the Strip, Supermarkets close by, although the beech is quite a distance but still walkable. Taxis are very affordable, under 8 euro to Oldtown which is well worth a visit. Plenty of good eating places on the Strip. Look forward to going back.

Room Tip: Top floor apartments have larger balcony's which are well worth it & try for an apartment ov...

It was our first trip to the Algarve as a family and I can't recommend this apartment enough. We have a 16 month old so finding an apartment that was well equipped was really important to us - and we were not disappointed. There was everything you could need for a really comfortable stay - it was also completely spotless with lovely crisp white sheets on the beds and fluffy towels.
The location is fantastic - really close to shops, restaurants and the beach (all within walking distance) or you can do as we did, and hire a car which allowed us to visit the local area including a trip to Portimao for their famous sardines.
The pool area is great for adults and kids with a good sized swimming pool, plenty of loungers and a really lovely kids pool where our daughter got stuck in and made loads of little friends!
The only thing we wish is that we'd stayed longer! Two weeks next time would be perfect.

I agree about these apartment being hi spec beautiful gardens and well looked after and a good location but on the down side of things the rules of this condominium are for ever being broken with people reserving the sun beds all day with their towels which isn't allowed, bring breakables to the pool area plus large inflatables and many more rules that are constantly broken there are some people who would like to swim in the pool but they have to constantly fight off the sharks dolphins whales and boats, then there's the breakables that is brought to the pool area where there are a lot of children very bad idea,a lot of these guests think the rules are for other people and not for them yes they are on holiday but so are a lot of people who obey the rules those who don't spoil things for every one else

Returned from a 10 night stay with friends and our kids. We stayed in block 37 on 1st floor. Very high standard apartment. Plenty of space. 1 double bed with ensuite bathroom. Another double bedroom. Both with fitted wardrobe. Also another fitted wardrobe in the passage way. Fully equipped with washing machine and ironing board and iron. Everything for a self catering holiday. There are quite a few blocks on this complex. Each block has its own pool. Perfect location. A 10 min walk away from main strip. A couple of restaurants next to complex and a small local shop a few mins away. Stocked with all you needed. The transfer time is around 40 mins and costs 50 euros.
Would Definately stay here again.

Have stayed here several times and keep coming back, the location is quiet and d strip (if u like that sort of thing) is only a few mins walk away. The old town is a short taxi ride away. These apartments are fantastic for families only downside is there are no toilets at d pool in the main block and its a bit of a pain having to bring the kids up and down constantly so if you have kids I'd suggest a ground floor apartment. The grounds are well kept, the apartments are fantastic, like a home from home, and myself and my husband love it there. Will defo be back again.
