“Love it.”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This is the first place me and my Fiancée visited as our first holiday together. She visited here near enough every year prior to meeting me and she only had good things to say about the place. When I got there I certainly seen what she meant! It was stunning. The room's are very clean and spacious. The apartment blocks are very clean and the whole place looks bright. There are two swimming pools with the bigger one having a kids pool. We spent most of the time in the smaller pool where it was quite and relaxing. Littrus Bar offers a wide variety of food and drinks in the day and night but I would highly recommend the little bar on the corner across the road called Cabinitas. Great bar showing all kind of sports. If you do go here I would recommend you get a car as there is very little around. You are around 20 minute drive from Albufeira and and about 10 Minutes from the Marina.

All in all if you want a fully relaxing holiday on a budget, this is certainly the place for you.

Room Tip: Try to get a lower floor room. The view's are generally better!

Stayed here for one week mid Sept. Lovely, spacious apartments, cleaned everyday.We had an upper apartment facing the pool, lovely balcony area with seats and table.Big kitchen, with utensils so great for familes.
Also had air con & black out roll down shutters. The pool bar was closed while we stayed there.Very handy supermarket across the road with everything you need.Small selection of cafes & restaurants on the street, basic enough food but very cheap.Pool was freezing! But weather was scorching when we there.Its about 10 mins taxi ride into Albuferia, there is not much to do near the apartments but we got a very cheap deal on travelrepublic.ie so we were happy!

Room Tip: get rooms by the reception the pools are more private there

My wife and I stayed here for a week in mid sept.
the 1 bed apartment was spacious and well equipped.
It was cleaned every day of our stay.
there are two large adult pools and a small kids pool.
The nearest beach (Gale) is approx. 4klms away but is absolutely fabulous. Albufeira is a 10 min. drive away. Local buses stop close by.
Algarve Shopping and Salgados golf are close by.
Amigos bar attached to the complex serves good value food and there is good wi-fi signal.
there is a small well stocked mini market across the road from the bar with bigger supermarkets a short drive away.
we would have no hesitation in making a return visit go this complex.

The best way to book an appartment in our opinion is by hotelopia (spanish agency) if you want to stay only for one night. Other agencies reduce price if stay is for longer.
We stay sometimes there for a wine evening in A Casa do Avó.
Sometimes we get a good appartment, sometimes it's less.
The first visites we were in block 4 (pool view) and it was very good. Last time we booked by another agency and it was a disaster. Now in September we booked by Hotelpoia again and we got a good appartment again. Only problem, no tampon for the bath, but could be found.
Booking directly with Jardins Vale de Parre is more expensive, but myabe they give the best what they have.
Unfortunately for us beds are hard every where but others like it.
With the pillows it's a question of luck.

Room Tip: Avoid road side.

We have just returned from our fifth visit to this accommodation. Due to late booking we were unable to book a pool view. However, as regular customers staying for 10 nights we expected them to look after us with a pleasant apartment. I phoned reception the day before arrival to tell them we would be arriving after midnight due to flight times. Whilst on the phone I asked if they had a nice room for us this year. Yes a room with a balcony but no pool view came the reply - you tell us if there are any problems. On arrival we were shown to a first floor apartment in block three. At 3am we awoke to hear the refuse truck emptying the bins on the opposite side of the road, then at 7am a refrigerated van delivering in the lay-by outside. We went to reception in the morning asking nicely for something a little quieter as we were also very near the bar which opens until 2am. We were shocked by the attitude of the reception staff with replies such as - we are fully booked - you booked a standard room - you have what you paid for - all rooms on the road side are equally noisy - you should have chosen the other room with no balcony which we offered, now another guest has this (I don’t recall being given any choice). On the second night, Saturday, our children were kept awake by Karaoke in the bar. On the Monday the glass bank opposite the room was emptied in the small hours of the morning. All the different bins were emptied separately with loud bangs and crashes on various nights. We again asked politely for another room - same response (fully booked - that is what you paid for). In my business I treat my regular customers well because their repeat custom and referrals help me to succeed. Sadly not the case at Jardins Vale de Parra this year. On a positive note it is still a nice clean complex and very relaxing around the pools. We also discovered the new "Docaria Almeixar" cafe/restaurant which was fantastic and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Always book a pool view and never chance a standard which is only around 15% cheaper in any event.

Nice complex. Wifi in reception a wind up! Much too slow. Found out on the last day that if you stand at the reception desk its much better but there are other options. We found Amigo's at the Littrus Bar much faster. Was there 5th to 15th May.....very quiet and out of season. But, all the restaurants were open and there is a good variety. Agree with other reviewer....Cabanitas excellent brekkie for €4 and super fast wifi. Amigo's at the Littrus bar on the complex under new ownership. Run by Eithne a lovely Irish lady and Nicola. Have TV's and sky sports, ESPN etc. They will also be running the pool bar in the season. Wifi in there is the best around too. Apartments nice, clean and have most of what you need. Balcony too noisy overlooking the road with lorries motorbikes and dustcarts. Dustbins are emptied at about 4am!! I heard them about every other night but I am a light sleeper. The beaches locally are beautiful but a car is needed ideally. Gale beach nearest...but try Sao Rafael its lovely. Most beaches have a cafe/bar and toilets. If you have a two bedroom and buggies and kids don't worry there are lifts from the car park to each floor. Earlier reviewer didn't mention lifts! We had a lovely time - especially because the complex was virtually empty - no sunbed issues for a start! Pool was very very cold....hope it warms up for you summer chaps! Great little supermarket opposite Amigo's sells most of what you need. Fabulous boat trip into the caves. Go to Albufeira marina and choose Belize by algor experience. It's a catamaran, toilets and a bar on board and they take a smaller boat to take you in and out of the caves in too. Weather was fab but rained on our last day. Apartment has air con, washer, aired, hob, microwave ( but no oven!!). We took our own mini DVD player too and plugged it into telly.

Room Tip: Take beach towels and hair dryer if u use one.....don't think they are provided.
