“Fantastic holiday in a wonderful place!”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We really enjoyed our holiday and did not want to come home!

This apartment is lovely, overlooking the old town - the views are amazing and we couldn't believe how much space we had.

We couldn't fault anything and everything we needed was there.

The taxi service Philippa organised for us was first class and we couldn't thank her enough for making our transfers to & from the apartment stress free. The drivers were very pleasant people.

We had lovely weather and managed to fit in various activities such as quad biking, jet skiing, paragliding and a jet boat trip along the coast exploring the caves. The beach is lovely and only a stone's throw away, although the balconies are ideal for sunbathing and are equipped with 4 sun-loungers and chairs, getting the sun from late morning 'til evening.

The last time we went to Portugal was over 25 years ago - it has changed quite a lot since then. We couldn't believe how busy it was, especially in the evenings. Our favourite restaurants were The Bistro, Il Brigante and Casa de fonte.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and if returning to Albufeira in the future we would certainly be in touch with Philippa again.

“Almost perfect Apartment- will be booking again”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

There were 6 of us. Me, husband, two kids, my mum and dad. Apartment within walking distance of beach and old town. Views fantastic.

Clean, well equipped. All mod cons. Nice communal pool.

We all enjoyed the holiday and apartment. If I were to be really picky we would have liked more than just Sky News on the TV, but who goes on holiday to watch telly?

Happy to recommend. Good value for money. Will be coming back in the next couple of years.

“It's all about the view!”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

WOW, what a view, from the second you open the door, it's amazing,
And we still felt the same after a week.
Everything went smooth, from booking, airport transport and then Lynn gave us a warm welcome on arrival at the apartment , which is spacious and clean. More than enough dishes, glasses etc.
Wifi, better selection of tv channels and some comfortable sun beds would be a great addition to the apartment.
All in all we had a lovey holiday and look forward to to a return visit.

“5***** Apartment with stunning views”

person found this review helpful

We went to Albuferia for 10 Nights in October 2014, we decided on this Apartment for the views and we were not disappointed the view from both balconies is simply breath taking, the apartment is well equipped for all your need only problem for us no wifi in the apartment but if you go out to the balcony you can sometimes pick up some wifi connections from nearby hotels. The service we received from Phillipa and her people in Albuferia was 1st class, I would have no hesitation on recommending and returning to stay in this beautiful apartment. Thanks again for everything.
