“Highly recommend 😎”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Booked this apartment after reading the many positive reviews and can say we are glad we did, the apartment lived up to our expectations and more, the discrimination was accurate except for the view from the balcony as words cannot convey the spectacular views over the old town and out to sea, Fantastic much nicer than we had imagined, we could easily have spent our full Holiday on that balcony
Access to the old town was a short stroll down the hill easily reached, we found the stroll back to also be easy, only those with walking difficulties or with Heath problems would find the walk back difficult,
The apparent is well presented all round clean tidy and well maintained and fitted out to a good standard,
For those who like a quite nights sleep, it may not be for you,
The noise from the bars in the town can be heard easily in the bedroom this goes on till 5am, we remedied this with ear plugs from the chemist at the end of the street, I may add if you intend to be this close to the town then expect this as it's no different for the many hundreds of apartments and Hotels surrounding the town as they all hear it equally, it's a price you pay for being conveniently close to the town and beach, we would not be put off by and would definitely book this apartment again, can't understand people who would book to be close the night life and then complain about the noise at night, ( you can't have everything ) Philippa and Barry where a pleasure to deal with very nice and helpful people the apartment is a credit to them,
Hope to be back again and again

Dear Colin, thank you for your review and your positive comments. So glad to hear you had a wonderful time at the apartment and enjoyed its location too. At this "peak" time of year, you are correct, it is busier but the beauty of the apartment is that is in one of the quietest parts of the old town with no people or car traffic passing by. The only noise being that from the semi-professional singers in the town. Hope you will visit again - you'd be most welcome. Barry

“Lovely view”
Reviewed June 18, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Apartment is very nice, with a lovely view out to sea, it's clean and has all you need, near the town and supermarket its on a quiet street, apartment has a good size balcony and is lovely to sit at day time but at night from 6.30 it is noisy from the town as the music starts every night, beach is very nice and lots of restaurants to chose from taxis are cheap always a queue but you don't wait long, bars are quite loud, and pulling people in is a bit of a put off and they cater for stag and hens more than anything will be finding a quieter part of Portugal next time as its a lovely country.

Dear Brenda - Thank you for your comments and we are pleased you enjoyed the views and the apartment so much and found it clean and to your liking. June is one of the busier times of the year in Albufeira so the entertainment does tend to commence in the early evening. The Old Town, where the apartemnt is located, is the quiter area and I'm pleased you found the location of the apartment quiet itself. Philippa

Set high above the square with uninterrupted views over fisherman's beach this apartment is perfectly located close to all amenities. Close enough to be in the hub of things and far enough away to enjoy a nice relaxing holiday. The apartment was spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen and fresh modern bathroom. Our favorite spot was the balcony we could happily have spent whole holiday just sitting out there. Owners Barry and Irene were so nice and helpful and it was great to have Barry provide airport transfers. Having holidayed in Albufeira previously we have definitely found the perfect spot for us.
