We have travelled to this area on numerous occasions over the past 25 years and stayed in both apartments and Villas with family. Algarve Sunshine apartment is extremely spacious, there were 5 adults in our party and it was very comfortable. The apartment is well equipped with everything thought of even down to a lovely welcome pack which was waiting for us on arrival. It is well situated in Porto Do Mos, and you can walk to the beach and to the two beach bars. Lagos is only a short drive away and you are well placed to visit Silves, Sagres and the numerous smaller fishing villages on the coast. The owners answered any questions or queries promptly. The pool area is kept beautifully, and although there is some building work going on in the area it did not detract from the lovely surrounding. Thank you Algarve Sunshine for sharing your apartment with us.
Absolutely lovely and spacious apartment . Very well equipped, including beach towels. Short walk down hill to the beach, but the way back is quite hilly, so not good for the infirm. You can drive to the beach if you have a car, there is plenty of parking.
Hire car came in very handy for shopping and visiting other towns and beaches.
Visiting the Sand City (Fiesa) in Pera was amazing would definitely recommend a visit.
Overall we had a very nice holiday. Thank you to David & Penny who own the apartment. They provided a very generous welcome pack with food and sundries which was very much appreciated.
We stayed at this apartment for 5 nights in June, 3 adults and 3 young kids. The apartment was fantastic, open plan, very spacious and bright. The decor was very modern and high quality, the sofa was so comfy. The kitchen was really well kitted out with more or less everything we needed. As far as self-catering goes, the apartment provided us with everything we needed and more.
The balcony has a great view over the pool, which is fully enclosed, which meant the kids could pay freely in it while we watched from the balcony. There is a gas bbq too on the balcony, and we often barbequed sausages for breakfast, with hardly any bbq cleaning needed :)
The location itself is just outside lagos, in a quite residential area. There is a fantastic cliff top walk which I done every morning at 5am and highly recommend it. It starts about 300m from the apartment, towards the beach. The area seemed very safe. I highly recommend hiring a car, as all the supermarkets and lagos are a 5 minute drive away. We also drove to Pria Da Rocha for 2 day excursions as we really love the beach there.
All-in-all, I can not recommend this apartment highly enough, especially for families or people looking a bit more peace and quite.
The only 2 negatives I have on this apartment are; I found the front entrance door to the building a bit fustrating to enter the security code, always took me a few attempts. Also, a few buckets and spades or other kids toys left in the house would have went down a treat. We always have to spend a small fortune buying all the kids beach toys, and then always have to leave them behind lol. But really, the 2 negatives are just me nit-picking.
Apartment was a nice size for three couples. It was clean and had everything we needed. Location for us was great. Easy access to beaches restaurants and grocery store. Owner was very easy to work with.
We had a lovely 10 day stay in this apartment. It is very spacious and well equipped - just as described. The shared pool is a good size and our girls loved splashing around - we also saw it being cleaned on a regular basis. The apartment is located just 5mins from a beautiful beach. We had very good meals out at the Campimar beachside restaurant but were slightly disappointed with Antonios - booking in advance is recommended.
The apartment is also a ten minute drive from Lagos which is well worth a visit with lots of excellent restaurants and quaint, cobbled streets. We hired a car, which we would recommend, and enjoyed trips out to lots of little villages along the coast which were beautiful.
