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.
