Lovely apartment so stay in, on the ground floor right beside the pool . Has all you need for comfortable break. Decent size pool in nice private area. Only 15 minutes walk to the main part of the town 'The Strip' where all the bars & restaurants are & a 10 mintue taxi ride to the old town. Second time staying at Holidays@poolside & would happily return again. Ana is also very helpful and ready to help with any query
This was our second time to stay in this condo which is on the outskirts of Albufeira. It is in a very quiet area but is within walking distance (15/20 minutes) of a great selection of bars and restaurants. There are also some local restaurants within a few minutes walk. The condo is very modern and spacious and has every amenity you could think of. It really was a home away from home. There is a lovely shared pool a few feet from the door which our 2 children (age 13 and 8) often had to themselves.. There is also a great covered terrace which gets the sun until late in the evening. The owner Ana made the booking process very easy and she checked in with us a number of times to make sure that our stay was going well. I would have no hesitation in recommending this condo.
We have stayed 2 years running at the apartment with our daughter who is now 2 1/2.
The stay is made very easy by Ana who will get you anything you need for your stay.
We did not have a car as everywhere is easy to get to, if it isn't walking distance then taxis and buses are easy accessible and will not leave a hole in your pocket.
It is approx 15/20minutes walk to the shops and restaurants and there is plenty to Suit all your needs.
I would definitely recommend the apartment it is clean and homely.
Thank you again Ana
Had a fantastic holiday at Ana's house in albuferia. She is a most helpful host, nothing was a problem . Ana is always on the end of the phone to help you out. Her house is absolutely spotless. We slept great and she had everything there that we might need. The air con was a god send as it was up in the 40ths when we where there in august. There is a supermarket about 15 minutes away, it is an uphill walk back but we don't mind the exercise . If we returned we would definitely get a car. Also the pool area is lovely and we meet some lovely people. Thanks Ana for a great holiday x
Our family of 5 have just returned home after spending 2 weeks here. The villa itself has everything you need... fully equipped kitchen, towels, comfy beds etc. There was even a bottle of wine and some water for us for when we arrived! It is clean, modern and is definitely a home from home. We have 3 children, and an extra bed was put in for us. All of the beds were very comfortable. The air-con was a welcome relief as there was a heat wave while we were there! The owner was extremely helpful, and kept in touch with us throughout our whole stay incase we needed anything. The villa overlooked the pool, which was lovely. It is a shared pool but never got crowded at all (it was just us in there most of the time) and there are sunbeds just for the use of this villa. A car is not entirely necessary as there are shops and restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk (a couple are even closer), however we hired a car and found it useful so that we could explore the area around a bit better (Vilamoura, water parks, old town, Gale beach, etc). The nearest beach is also walkable, but it is quite a way in the heat so we did this journey by car. The car also made trips to the supermarket easier. There was a locked garage for the car, so it was very secure. The old town is quite a bit futher so not really walkable, but you could get a cheap taxi if you needed to for about 8 euros. We've all had a fantastic holiday, and if we ever go back to Albufeira then we would definitely book this villa again!
This was our second visit, two years in a row!, to Ana's apartment and we will be back. My wife and I stayed in June with our two kids aged 8&10. The apartment had everything we needed and more, was immaculately clean, located in a lovely quiet complex, not too far from the coast so having a car is ideal. Ana is a great host and really goes out of her way to make sure we had a great time. The pool was right outside the patio door with plenty of sun loungers and toys for the kids to play with. Planning to return next year!
