“Worth it for the views alone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have visited Carvoeiro at least 6 times since 2007, the first time we visited Algar Seco Parque was on a wet windy January day but it still looked wonderful. We now visit Algar Seco Parque nearly every day during our holidays, it is a short walk from the town centre along the cliff tops, sometimes just for a drink and to look out over the stunning sea views and watch the seagulls swimming in the pools. We have had lunch there on several occasions, my favourite being the smoked salmon on toast. Our stay in Carvoeiro just would not be complete without a visit to ASP. The staff are very friendly and it is immaculately clean. Looking forward to visiting there again in September.

Dear Guest,

It’s so nice to hear your wonderful comments about our BistroBar. The view is indeed spectacular – both in January when the waves crash against the rocks below, or in summer with the blue, blue sea and sky…
Pair it with an excellent meal – and this is what holidays are all about!

Thank you again – and see you in September!

Best regards from the sunny Algarve

Superb location with outstanding gardens and impeccable maintenance. Friendly staff and very helpful. Our studio was huge with a great terrace overlooking the ocean. Pool area is fantastic. Would highly recommend this little slice of paradise.

Room Tip: The T1 studio was superb.

This was our third stay at Algar Seco and we don't tend to visit places more than once - holidays are too precious. But Algar Seco, the setting, the gardens, the lovely staff and the standard of the accomodation are worth coming back for. You couldn't pick a nicer place in Carvoeiro or possibly the whole of Portugal to stay and relax. The bistro by the pool is a real bonus with a very high standard of food but relaxed atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Even at the height of the season and fully booked (which it always is!) it's quiet there, but it is literally two minutes walk from restautants and bars and another two minutes to the vibrant town centre. The pictures in the brochures don't actually do it justice. Can't say enough good things about Algar Seco and all the team there.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, but not all have air con if that matters to you. All have sea views but som...

This was our dream vacation. The villa we stayed in (Bartolomeu Dias) was next to the ocean and had amazing views. The architecture was so neat - it even had a roof-top terrace. There was also a terrace down below for when it was hot during the day.
It was completely private with it's own swimming pool. The staff were wonderful too.
There were 3 huge bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. A great place for a family or several friends!

we spent a week of our honeymoon here and loved the quiet, romantic atmosphere and very friendly staff. We return to use the poolside restaurant several times a year and would recommend it to anyone appreciates the quieter life .

We have just returned from our first stay at Algar Seco, and it was wonderful. We stayed in a T1 Bungalow in Os Peixes - a short walk from the main complex and pools. The bungalow was large and spacious with a huge sun terrace overlooking the sea - very quiet and peaceful and a real sun trap.
We ate in the Bistro on 2 occasions, and I would like to say that Nelson, Roberto and the rest of the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The food was really good too!
All in all, a fantastic place, which I highly recommend.

Room Tip: All T1 Bungalows are about 300 metres from the main complex and pools. Because of this they are very...

Dear Guest,

I am very happy that your first stay with us was so enjoyable. The improvements done over the winter have certainly helped making the Bungalows Os Peixes more comfortable. Add to it the good meals at the BistroBar and the sunny weather, and it sounds like a memorable vacation…

Thank you for taking the time to post a great review and hoping to welcome you back in the near future.

Just had a week (Sep 07-14) at the lovely Bungalows overlooking the sea at Algar Seco. Lovely well kept gardens and all the people who worked within this well known complex were very pleasant and worked very hard to please. We stayed in a T2 Bungalow, which overlooked to pools, and wonderful views of the sea. It was a typical Portugese building with a very large patio. One problem was lack of Air Conditioning in most rooms, however large fans provided which was fine. We also found that the bathrooms needed updating, however overall the bungalow was big and comfortable.
Some people will find Algar Seco a bit pricey, but it's position is worth it, and all the shops are a few meters away.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for staying with us. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and have passed your kind comments on to the entire team.

I could not agree more with you that we have a great location: right by the sea, and yet so close to Carvoeiro. You would have liked air conditioning in your bungalow - I am delighted to inform you that we are planning to install air conditioning units and double glazing in all of our units. We have already started and will continue with a number of smaller units and our villas this winter, to be followed by the rest of the apartments the following year.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we hope that you will visit us again in the near future!
