“Clean, spacious but dated apartments.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

The apartments at Tempomar are clean, spacious but very dated. The lack of air-conditioning was a little annoying. The staff at the complex are very friendly and helpful. The bar area is again a little dated but it serves a purpose. The swimming pool is large, clean and a nice temperature. The sunbathing areas are ample and there are plenty of chairs, little things like cracked paintwork and concrete make it a little un-appealing on the eye, however all areas are very clean. Tempomar is situated about 30 seconds away from restaurants and shops and about 3 minutes from the beach which is ideal. Overall a pleasant stay but a few 'touch-ups' would certainly not go a miss.

We have stayed at Tempomar on a few occasions and travelling as a family, the apartments are ideal for our needs.
Whilst the 1 or 2 Bed Apartments are basic; they are roomy, clean and perfectly located to the pool, bar, snack meals etc. NB Breakfast/Lunch available from 9am-3pm.
Tempomar is ideally located to the beautiful village of Burgau and within a few minute walk to the few shops, restaurants and beach.
In summary, Tempomar is an ideal base for a good value family holiday in an extremely relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: All 2 Bed Apartments have stairs.

I have just returned from a fantastic 17 day break at Tempomar. It's a family run complex which met all my family's needs. As its a small complex a personal service could be provided. Our apartment (2 bedroom) was so spacious, usually we feel as though we are all on top of eachother - not here. Apartment had kitchen (with everything you need for your hol, and if its not there just ask staff and they'll try their best to sort it) living/dining room, toilet on 1st floor and on second floor - 2 bedrooms (with plenty of storage) and a family bathroom. There were also 2 balconies. Even though the apartment didn't have air con, they kept cool by opening windows and closing shutters (my husband was quite sceptical, but very pleased).
The Pool area was luvly, with a nice sized pool and plenty of sun loungers (lots of shade under the palms if you needed it, ideal for children in the midday sun). The pool bar offered snacks in the day which were very reasonable, there is also a lounge area where you can catch up on BBC news and an area where the children can catch up on disney channel or use Wi-fi. There is also a tennis court, full size snooker table and table tennis table (all of which are free).
The bar area was open in the evenings to, and as it was peak time on our visit BBQ evenings were held (don't miss Hugh's ribs) Karaoke, and Street Entertainers (enjoyed by adults and children alike). The children also had Kids Klub run by Samantha, my 2 boys were reluctant however they had a blast and were made to feel really welcome (resulting in going 4 times). This was the perfect chance for us as parents to go into the village of Burgau for a meal. A beautiful fishing village just outside the complex, the Ancorra Restaurant (not sure if spelt correctly) was AMAZING. The village is beautiful with a selection of small supermarkets, bakery, bars, restaurants and a gorgeous beach.
We hired a car however the was a good bus service (timetable available at reception), tickets for excursions could also be booked here (and were cheaper than other outlets). There was also a Cash Machine opposite.
Burgau is a beautiful holiday destination, however if you are expecting glitzy show bars. You won't find them. This isn't a negative.
It felt so safe for the children here and it was nice to see children enjoying the freedom of this holiday complex.
Fab complex run by great people, keep up the good work. We'll definitely be returning.

This was my second stay at Tempomar this year and yet again as usual we had a Fantastic time:-) We absolutely love the place, this time i celebrated my 40th there and Sam and the staff couldn't have made the celebrations any better, we had a ball...! We stayed in the Villa and it was absolute luxury, lots of space and everything we needed plus the added bonus of having our very own sun terrace/balcony. The weather was fantastic and we all enjoyed the pool and the relaxing friendly atmosphere.
The service from all the staff was excellent and the food is fab value for money, especially the BBQ nites; They're a must..!
Can't wait to go again, already planning a trip for early next year, it'll be worth the wait:-)

Room Tip: All rooms have everything you need, would definately recommend the Villa

We have stayed at Tempomar four times since 2004 and whilst we have taken holidays elsewhere over the years, the 'pull' back to Burgau and particularly Tempomar becomes too much and back we go. We booked to go back for a few days in July this year and as usual, we were welcomed back to the fantastic, happy, friendly atmosphere - home from home. We had read some reviews before we visited in July and frankly didn't recognise the place we had visited previously from some of the descriptions, however, we needn't have worried, not only was everything as fantastic as we remembered, the apartment that we were allocated had recently been renovated and looked amazing. Several others had also recently been updated and work was ongoing to complete all of the apartments.
To sum up, if what you want is a relaxing holiday in the sun, with comfortable, clean, well maintained and equipped accomodation, a stunning garden and pool, friendly and helpful staff, ideal location for access to beach and eating out then you should look no further.
Our only regret is that we are not able to get back out there before next summer!! Can't wait.

I have read some recent reviews about the Tempomar since we are coming in the middle of September. We cant wait to come back, we love the place although we came only for the first time last year. we know Nikki and Dave very well and they are so friendly, we also heard that the apartments were being re-furbished so that will be interesting to see. All those restaurants nearby and a fantastic beach. 30 days to go!! It cant come quickly enough! Lindsay and Sue, Southampton

We expected basic from Tempomar due to the excellent price but that wasn't our experience - our appartment was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We all enjoyed the pool and found the service from the staff excellent - genuinely friendly. True, you may find better accomodation in beautiful Bergau, but what made our holiday so good was the atmosphere on sight - really family friendly, personal service - it's the kind of place where you can relax immediately - the essence of a fabulous holiday that can't be bought. Despite great holidays else where we have never chosen to go back to a place as we like new experiences - we plan to return to Tempomar next year though - in fact, we didn't meet one person during our fortnight their that wasn't on a return visit!
