“Excellent apartment. Hire a car”
Reviewed October 26, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I had been working in Portugal prior to my husband joining me for a much needed week of R n R. We found the apartment to be totally luxury and just what we needed for a splurge week away. Most of the adjoining apartments seem to be privately owned but the neighbors were very friendly and helpful.
Positives :--
Fantastic apartment, the best we`ve ever stayed in. Going to buy a home cinema system this xmas as this was the first time we`ve experienced one.
Welcome pack was first class
Loads of essentials supplied (towels, pool gear etc)
Private basement garage with 2 spaces accessed by electronic door. Felt like a James Bond film every time we used it
The beaches on the Algarve are the best outside of Cornwall but don`t forget its the same Atlantic ocean so be ready for thermal shock !!
Negatives :-
No shops, bars or supermarkets within walking distance, you definitely need to hire a car.
No WIFI which is a surprise for such a high tech apartment

“Beautiful Apartment”
Reviewed October 1, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed 13th-20th September. Beautifully appointed apartment, very spacious with good sized bedrooms and several balconies! Weather was a bit iffy at night with a lot of rain but gorgeous sunshine for the rest of the time. Pool was a good size and not too busy. Local restaurants were OK but Lagos has much more choice. The supermarket will provide anything your heart could wish for (try the sardine paste/natas). Beach is absolutely lovely, and again not too busy. All in all, very happy with the week (oh, and many thanks to the owners for their very generous welcome pack - very thoughtful).

“Lovely Apartment!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from a week of glorious sunshine in Portugal. Stayed at the Algarve Sunshine apartment, very happy with the accommodation. Apartment owner helpful throughout and we appreciated the welcome pack of food/drink waiting for us as we had a late arrival. Not so keen on the 2 local restaurants, they are ok, but Lagos is near with good choice of places to eat. If you need a taxi phone number for Pedro is in the information folder at the apartment and would recommend using Pedro, first class service. We used Pedro for airport transfer as well as journeys whilst at Lagos.
Alvor is lovely and worth a visit, only a 4 euro bus journey from Lagos which takes 25 mins. We also enjoyed kayaking in Lagos, there are various trips and excursions that can be booked at the marina in Lagos. Pool at the apartment is great, at times we were the only ones using the pool and 4 sun loungers around the pool are just for algarve sunshine apartment use. Lovely holiday and would recommend Algarve Sunshine apartment.

“Perfect spot in the western Algarve”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Hello, David, I want to let you know that my sisters and I had a delightful time in your spacious, secure and well-appointed apartment in Porto de Mos, Lagos. The bedrooms were lovely, bright and suited us well, and the kitchen was extremely well-equipped. The living-dining area was roomy and comfortable, with lots of bells and whistles. In addition, the apartment's 3 balconies provided vistas in all directions. Since the temperature was cooler than normal, we appreciated the excellent heating arrangements. And thanks again for the generous welcome pack – it was terrific. We had wonderful meals, both on your dining balcony and at local restaurants. Although our time was brief, we toured the old city of Lagos, spent time at the beautiful beaches (watching surfers) and toured the area - stopping for lunch in a café in Vila da Bispo after visiting the fort at Sagres and the lighthouse at Cape St. Vincent. The spectacular coastline around Lagos reminds me of the much more publicized Great Ocean Road in Australia. I can certainly recommend your apartment to Algarve travelers for amenities and location .

“Heavenly Algarve Sunshine”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed at this beautifully appointed, state of the art apartment last November. The master bedroom with Jacuzzi bath ensuite is to die for :) You wake up to the sun shining through the bedroom patio door and the most wonderful sunrises over the sea beyond. I w particularly enjoyed being able to lie in bed and sunbathe with the patio doors open before adjourning to the balcony overlooking the pool after my breakfast in bed served by my special man! We loved the surround sound in all rooms and the huge great tv for watching dvd's. I have had my ipod stocked up with music ready to be connected into the surround sound system on our return there day after tomorrow. We will be revisiting the lovely bar/restaurant campimar just ten minutes walk away down at the beach overlooking the atlantic, bliss. Apparently could be 65 degrees there on Friday next :) Can't wait to get back to our paradise apartment. How about calling it Algarve Paradise :) xx
