“Nice, familiar and comfortable”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a very nice and relaxing week. The apartment is well located, new, and very well equipped.

We loved Burgau days and we'd like to go back next summer.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Apartment was perfectly situated in the village. It was, however, rather dull inside due to the decor. The door handle on one of the bedrooms kept coming off - from the inside - creating a few fractious moments. There was a broken shelf in the fridge door? The apartment was advertised as having TV and wifi. Due the dreadful weather for our week's stay, we needed them. However there were no instructions on how to make the required connections. Impossible. We were fortunate that my nephew who stays in Burgau was able to fathom out the IT requirements.
More care to small details & some instructions would have made a difference.

Dear Irene,
I am honestly so disappointed that the apartment failed to please. Yours is the first bad review we have ever received! With regard to decor I understand it is a very personal choice, it is however exactly as it appears in the photographs as advertised!
We have had wifi available for over a year now and again no problems until now .However I am more than happy to take your comments on board so I will assess the instructions in the attachment that all guests receive before their holiday and see if I can make them clearer!!
I am very happy to have read this review otherwise I would never have known that there was a problem with the door handle in one of the bedrooms! I would really like to have heard from you directly and we could have helped sort things out for you! Unfortunately small mishaps occur occasionally and guests do not always inform us when something breaks, such things may not be noticed by the cleaning staff particularly at busy times so feedback is very important!
The telephone number of my property manager is written clearly on the first page of the guest book in the apartment and was also in the attachment that you should have received, she is a super lady who would have any problems sorted in a flash!
I am sorry that there was a broken shelf in the fridge door, i must admit there was a slight crack in it the last time i was there but I thought it was acceptable, it has probably got worse and needs replacing!
Finally I am also genuinely sorry about the weather it is always very disappointing to get bad weather on holiday, we get enough of that at home!!

“Relaxing Holiday”
Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great stay once again in Burgau. The apartment is a homely base from which to explore the local beaches - Meia Praia at Lagos is beautiful, long, white sandy beach to try. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Burgau - Es Aquina makes a fantastic fish cataplana. The new restaurant Tomik in the complex was very handy and the food is excellent. Further excursions to try - Calas de Monchique and then drive to the top of the mountain or Cap de San Vicente for fantastic cliff top views to try and catch the sunset.

“LOVELY MODERN AND CLEAN APARTMENT”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a most enjoyable stay - absolutely everything was provided , a real "home from home" atmosphere!
The apartment was very clean, comfortable, quiet and conveniently located to the village of Burgau. We could walk to the village in minutes and buy feshly baked bread every morning! ....there was also a small family run supermarket which provided everything if you were on a self catering holiday
The beach was beautiful and all within minutes from the apartment
The instructions for collecting the key were very clear and easy to find, as was the apartment. We chose a ground floor apartment - perfect for parking outside and easy to offload luggage. The apartment was very secure with a gated entrance and a very efficient shutter system. The slight graudation of the apartment provided complete privacy.
as the apartment faced on to a very quiet street but this was never a problem - the owner had tastefully cultivated some very attaractive vegetation providing complete privacy for both inside and outside the apartment.
The bathrooms were new and modern with very efficient showers which were easy to operate and there was always plenty of hot water!
There was a lovely restaurant/bar just across the road which had a real clubhouse atmosphere and was perfect for all ages . A great menu -perfect for families offering a healthy option burger and fresh smoothies type menu.- all food was freshly cooked and prepared to order. The bar service was of an equally high standard and prices were good. . The staff were efficient and very friendly - it made our holiday as it was a great place to relax at the end of a day and use the free wifi!
We had a great stay and would highly recommend this to anyone!
A really lovely apartment!

“Authentic Fishing Village, Perfect Accommodation!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012 for a stay in June 2011
1
person found this review helpful

Myself and and a few girlfriends stayed in this apartment last June for 8 nights. The apartment was exactly as described if not nicer, in fact the photos in the advert did not do it justice. The apartment was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable, remote control air conditioning in the bedrooms made it very easy to cool the rooms quickly at bedtime, and although we never cooked anything except breakfast, the kitchen was modern and fully equipped for those who might want to cook on holidays! Bathrooms were good, with nice powerful hot showers. We enjoyed drinks on the terrace every evening in blissful sunshine!
The pool area and gym is very close to this apartment, the on site restaurant was very nice and reasonably priced for a poolside lunch. The village centre/grocery store is about a 3 minute walk from the apartment, the beach which is small and sheltered with a fabulous beach bar is another 2 minutes walk.
Burgau itself is a charming, quaint fishing village, with narrow cobbled streets and little smugglers alleys. There are about a dozen restaurants and a few small bars and cafes.
The only fault we could find with this apartment was that the clothes horse on the terrace was a little small for drink our beach towels, the owners promised they would rectify this!
I would certainly book with this owner again.
