“Amazing place... I miss it already! ”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed here with my fiancé and my mum and dad only got back last week and I am missing it already!

The most amazing views ever and the standard of the accommodation is so high.

Felt so at home there and so comfortable... We had the second bedroom which is light and airy and mixed with the view from the balcony is just amazing and I loved being in that room.. Just the whole feel of it made me at peace and so relaxed.

We used the bbq a couple of nights and that was great and I loved the open shaded area on the huge terrace with the table and chairs (the terrace has changed a bit than on these TA pics but for the better as you now have glass as a wall
so you can lie on your sun bed looking at the panoramic views).

The location is perfect, you are up a hill but this made the views all the more spectacular and enabled me to eat a couple of extra ice creams!!! I would say if you had walking difficulties this might not be the place for you.

Overall I would most definitely recommend this penthouse, you will not be disappointed, it's amazing.

“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed May 24, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was our first trip to Albufeira and we loved it. Usually we stay in hotels, but this apartment gave us the freedom to get up later, cook our own breakfast and chill out at down times. It is beautifully situated, well equipped and spacious. We had everything we could have needed. Booking was streamlined and good instructions for use of gadgets inside the flat were very helpful. For just the two of us, or for a family, it was perfect. Tricky on the hill with small children I guess, as its steep but we saw it as a way of keeping fit after lying under a parasol for hours! Liked the apartment so much, we booked again for next year as soon as we got home. Wonderful. By the way, the weather in May doesn't seem to be that reliable but we had a day out on a boat in Lagos and that was an interesting place. Allow 2hrs for the slow bus, the express bus is quicker but less frequent.

“It gets better”

person found this review helpful

This is our forth time at Boa Vista Penthouse, and the owner has made some
fantastic alterations to the very large terrace, we didn't think this appartment
could be improved on because it's just a little bit of heaven on earth.
The views are incredible and it's just a stroll into town, or stay on the terrace and
eat there. The area is quiet so it's good for winding down yet so close to everything.
We are definitely going back.

“Perfect in every way....”

people found this review helpful

Situated in the old town of Albufeira, about five minute walk from the centre, this apartment is stunning in every way. It is in a quiet residential location but very close to some superb restaurants and bars and of course the beach.
The standard of accommodation is 5 star and it is very well equipped. The terrace is out of this world. The views are amazing and it is private which enables you to sit out and enjoy the sun and the views without being overlooked.
Mary the owner and her team could not be more helpful and are a pleasure to deal with.
All in all PERFECT.
This was our second visit and we have booked for next year!

“Wonderful apartment amazing views”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great holiday in this apartment. It had everything we needed. The views were amazing and the area was close to the marina and the town centre. The walk back from the town had a bit of a climb but there is no hurry - just take your time!! My 12 years old had a very chilled time and he was quite happy to sit back and relax - wifi was a bonus. The enormous veranda was great = plenty sun loungers and was very private. Hope to return here one day - would highly recommend it
