Cantinho do Mar

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We recently stayed in a 2 bed apartment and it was extremely spacious, tidy and convenient located for all your need. There was a large supermarket approximately 200 meters from the front door. The old town is a leisurely 15 minutes walk from the apartments and the livelier "strip" is about 10 minutes walk away. There was enough room to sleep nearly 6 people in the apartment. The balcony on both sides of the apartment (203) means that you have sun nearly all day. We didn't ask for the WiFi password when we arrived and it was only when we asked if there was an issue with the internet PC in the basement that we were given the password. WiFi was fast and reliable. Only 2 English channels on the telly, Sky News and NBC News, so if you are bringing kids it would be a good idea to bring your own entertainment. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend the apartments to anyone wanting to stay in Albufeira.

Room Tip: Ask for the WiFi password when checking in if it is something that you will need during your stay.

On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, who checked us in quicly and efficiently. We were pleasently suprised with the apartment. It had a large living room with dining table, 3 piece suite and TV. A well equipped kitchen, including a fridge freezer and microwave, Spacious Twin Bedroom with Air Con (which didnt cost extra) and a big bathroom. The apartment would have easily slept 4 people. Best of all tho was the extra long balcony and the stunning view, our apartment faced over the pool and had a sea view (not all apartments face this way so you do need to request it).

The pool itself was a good size for the amount of apartments in the complex (14 apartments) and was fairlly quiet most of the time, untill the Dutch youth woke up mid afternoon ! There was no need to be up at 7am to reserve a sunbed as there were plenty to go around. There was a pool bar, however if you wanted a drink you needed to go to reception to find a member of staff.

The apartments had a great location, near to a large shopping complex, excellent for those wanting to truly go self catering. It was a 15 minute walk downhill to the beach and the old town in one direction and to the strip the other way. Taxis were very cheap at 3.25 euro per journey, which we chose to use for the journeys back up to the apartments.

Overall great clean apartments with all facilities you could want for a self catering apartments, we will stay here again on future holidays to Albufeira.

Tips........ Pop in and see Pat in the Canadian Bar on the strip for Good Beer and Banter, or Sir Harrys in the Old Town for Food, Drinks and Live Music.

Room Tip: request a pool / sea view for a balcony with a view
