“Lovely apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

When we arrived at the address on our booking form Edifico Galeria Comercial there was no booking for us but were to told to try Orada apartments which was on the other side of the road from the marina and this is where we were booked. We were a bit disappointed as we were looking forward to a lovely view over the marina but it turned out we had no view of anything,not even the pool area as our apartment was on the ground floor of a different block overlooking another block of apartments. On the plus side it was really peaceful and the reception staff were very helpful and the apartment was spotlessly clean and served our purpose. The walk into the old town where there is plenty of shops bars restaurants etc is very scenic and takes about 20 minutes. The marina itself is lovely with various bars and restaurants some cheaper and better than others so just try around.We went on the caves and beach BBQ cruise on the Belize catamaran it was magnificent and well worth 50 euro each it lasts 6 and half hours from 10am till 4.30pm, you are taken all round the coast and in and out of some of the caves stopping for a BBQ on the beach,all your drink ( as much as you want )both on the yacht and beach plus your BBQ is included in the price the crew all speak perfect English and are really pleasant, helpful and very informative.

Room Tip: On hind sight where we were was probably quieter than on the marina front or overlooking the pools a...

Made some friends and visited the apartments all seems excellent and the Marina efficient and tidy.
Did however have our lunch on the marina At "The Sangria Club Lounge" (which does not seem to have a mention yet) and found it not only to be the best but excellent service wine and food .... ...had the Potugese version of Antipasta platter .. interesting and adequate for two.
Cannot miss the place ... there fronting the boats.

just back from 5 days at these apartments, and could not fault at all. The apartment was an excellent standard and the owner of the apartment was great, even letting us stay until 2pm on final day until our transfer to the airport. As a group of 5 we had more tha enough room in the 2 bed apartment, with sofa bed available in the living room, would definitely recommend to anyone and will hopefully be returning myself soon. If you are travelling with young children a taxi costs around 4 euro into old town as walkway can be quite hilly.

Stayed in these lovely apartments overlooking the marina for a week in June. We arrived on a early morning flight and were dreading having to wait until 5pm to check in, but luckily our apartment was ready and we were able to check in after about half an hour waiting around for a receptionist to turn up. (24 hour reception doesn't exist here)! The apartment was very spacious, clean and well equipped, so it felt very much like a home from home and we were lucky enough to have one of the pool's on the complex, right outside our back door. The complex is in a very quiet location and I always felt very safe and secure in the area, as I did everywhere else in the Algarve. The marina itself is a beautiful place and there are a number of cruises and water actvities that can be booked there but unfortunately there isn't much else in the surronding area. Just a handful of eateries, a bank and a small minimarket, where you can buy a few basics. Most of our evenings were spent either in the old town or on the strip. We got taxi's from the rank accross the road from the apartments. The cost of taxi's varied slightly, 7-8 euros on average to get to the strip and 5 euros to get to the old town. But if you feel like having a stroll, the old town is well within walking distance, I'm just lazy.

We stayed in a 3 bedroomed/2 bathroom apartment (Lotte 1/Edificio C), although there was only 2 of us.

Have been a Travel Agent for 30 years and this was one of the finest accomodation blocks we have stayed in.

15 mins. walk to the Old Town, ideal for boat trips. The Tour Bus stops right outside the apartments - ideal for couples (if walking is not a problem) and families alike.
Check the cost of taxis coming back from the square,before you enter them, as they should only be charging around 5 euros.
Don't go to Sharkey's below the apartments- much better food and service at the Cafe del Soho further along the Marina(2 mins).

If you try these apartments, you'll go back again!.

Enjoy!!,

Jim.Edinburgh.

Room Tip: If you are a couple - ask for a marina view apartment.

we've just arrived back after a week stay. I must say location is fantastic at these apartments. we are in the age bracket of 27-29 and we thoroughly enjoyed it here. the walkway to the old town is beautiful, we werent fans of the new town so stayed mostly arond the old town and marina. Sharkeys bar is a good laugh were locals go this time of year- lynn makes a deadly sangria!for food you can go no better then tagsca Portugese- by far best food of the holiday there at very affordable and the quality is fab.
the apartments themselves are cleaned daily and are nice and spacious. its heavily guarded 24hr s a day and we were made feel very safe- especially when the resort is so quite compared to peak times. all in all would come back in a flash and have already recommended this accomodation to all my friends and family
