“Totally relaxing holiday in luxury apartment (207 Burgau)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Just back from a totally relaxing holiday in the Jardim da Meia Praia complex. We stayed in apartment - 207 Burgau. Jardim da Meia Praia is a gated community of about 60 apartments set in beautiful landscaped gardens, just outside the lovely old town of Lagos. It is approximately a 45 minutes’ drive from Faro Airport (you can also get a bus or train from Faro to Lagos). The apartment is an immaculate 4 Star, 3 bedroom property with large private roof terrace complete with Jacuzzi, sun loungers, dining table and chairs plus BBQ. It was wonderful sitting in the Jacuzzi with a glass of champagne looking over the roof tops in the sun – real luxury! I booked directly with the owner and can provide details if necessary.

Apartment - 207 Burgau has 3 large bedrooms – king-size bed in the main bedroom together with an en-suite bathroom, twin single beds in the other 2 bedrooms (so can sleep 6 very comfortably) and separate bathroom. Large living room with 2 sofas and 2 arm chairs plus dining room table all leading out to large balcony which has tables and chairs. It is ideal for all types of groups/families – its large enough not to be on top of one another. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the furnishings looked new and high end.

The kitchen has everything you may need cooker, microwave, fridge / freezer, washing machine / dryer, dish washer, kettle, plus all dining and cooking equipment and utensils.

Bathroom towels, toiletries and bed linen are included on arrival – we had additional maid service which is optional.

Large swimming pool (again spotlessly clean), with separate kiddies paddling pool, children's play area, Destino's bar/restaurant (which is excellent value and the food is lovely). There is also pool side games and internet /wifi in the restaurant. I was told that in the next few months Wifi will also be available in the apartment.

The complex is approximately 15 minutes’ stroll to the beach of Meia Praia (which is gorgeous – we walked all the way from the apartment to the beach and on to Lagos – well worth doing), stopping off at a few beach cafes spaced nicely along the length of the beach. Gaivota Branca is a particularly lovely bar/restaurant/café with beautiful views. I don’t play golf but there are a number of golf courses in the area (Palmares golf course is also just a short drive away). The marina of Lagos is about 20 min walk away – we took a brilliant boat trip from there ($10 per head for a 90 min trip), there are a number of bars/restaurants in this area plus many more in Lagos itself. Lagos is a lovely old town – definitely worth a visit, plus too is the town of Luz (about 15 min drive away).

Room Tip: There are a number of apartments in this lovely complex but "207 Burgau" actually has a pr...

Just stayed in 3 double room apartment . Immaculately clean , loads of storage ,large spacious rooms and a great roof terrace with barbeque and loungers . The reception staff were fantastically helpful and friendly . This has got to be amongst the best value for money in the area for quality apartments .

Room Tip: Room 305 Great roof terrace

We have stayed in this complex on 5 occasions now. We have previously rented two different 3 bedroom apartments, both had some excellent points to compliment their owners. On this latest occasion we were just a couple so elected to rent a two bed town house. The house was well designed and appointed. We had two criticisms for no 112, firstly the beds were extremely uncomfortable, we understand these were the standard bed supplied when the property was new. In our humble opinion sleep on holiday is one of the most important feature to enable good relaxation and recuperation. We tried our best to re-jig the mattresses even to the point of using the sofa cushions to enhance the mattress. We had some limited success but it's not what we would expect to have to do. We know that many of the apartments and houses have replaced their beds with very good quality but not expensive units and that is what we suggest the owners do with 112. Our second issue was the age and size of the tv, this was an old cathode-ray set no more than 24 inches screen size and because the tv was connected via a satellite box the screen size was reduced even further. Flat screen tv's are very cheap now so we would expect this to be replaced too. We would certainly rent this house again if the bed and tv issues were sorted. We cannot fault the rest of the complex and that's why we keep returning.

A stunning set of buildings, exceptionally clean & well cared for. The pool is beautiful and there are plenty of beds. Destino's bar/restaurant is good value for money with friendly staff. ..the happy 2 hours is worth going to for €5.50 for 2 cocktails! Within walking distance to a gorgeous beach with plenty of lovely restaurants. Free wifi, underground cool parking, tennis courts, lush gardens, streams with goldfish. ..it really is relaxing....and very safe.

Very well located on top of Meia Praia beach near Lagos... We took a 3 bedroom flat but most of the time we are on the beach, in Lagos or in the Marina. You can walk to the beach in around 15mns. The only less positive comment concerns the lack of blackouts on the windows... I am sure they will fix it.
