“Great apartment - ideal for young children”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My partner and I and our two daughters, aged 4 and 1, stayed in the apartment from 18th - 25th September and found it to be ideal for our needs. The apartment itself is comfortable and has all the normal items you need - e.g. washing machine, corkscrew etc. It even had all the digital TV channels (CBeebies for daughter) and all the Sky Sports Channels (for Dad).

Best bits of the holiday were:

(1) Weather was between 30 and 34 degrees every day apart from one morning. Also there is a slight breeze in the Algarve that cools you down, but you need to ensure the kids have on their sunscreen.
(2) The nearby pool (only a few steps away from the shaded terrace) had a decent sized area for toddlers and was used at least two-three hours every day. The pool does feel cold at first but you soon warm up, the kids had no problem.
(3) The pool area is enclosed; therefore, children cannot wander off and strangers would find it very difficult to gain access.
(4) The old village is a very beautiful, pristine area with well maintained plants and flowers.
(5) At this time of the year there are lots of pre-school children and all the restaurants are very tolerant and friendly towards young children.
(6) Used the recommended VIP chauffeurs to tranfer from the airport and they were extremely good. The price was 40 euros per journey (80 euros in total). This is on a par with local taxis but with much better service.
(7) Tourist train - get it from outside the Four Seasons - is ideal for getting to the marina, especially with young children.
(8) The apartment has a visitor book that lets you know of good/bad places to visit and eat. Also, another book to tell you about local eateries.

Worst bits of the holiday (nothing too dramatic):

(1) We hired a cot and high chair from the local representative. The cot was OK but the highchair was in a pretty poor state.
(2) The beds were a little too hard for our tastes but we all slept fine.
(3) No wi-fi but this is being very picky.
(4) If you have young children then move the breakables on your arrival - vases, lamps etc. Our daughter broke a vase on the first day.

Overall the kids had a great holiday, the apartment had everything we needed. We ate out virtually all the time. We have recommended this apartment to other members of our family.

It should be noted that although this apartment is ideal for children it would also suit many other types of traveller e.g. older people.
