I have just returned from a week's holiday and we booked to stay in Castelos da Rocha. I had booked a twin room (travelling with Mother), pleased that we had been allocated a 2 bedroom apartment. Rooms were perfect, good sized and spacious! The balcony however was off the room which had twin beds in it, and upstairs in the apartment. If I had children I wouldn't have felt that it would be safe to have a balcony in the room where children would probably be sleeping (twin room, other room had double bed)! It may be different in the other apartments so probably worthwhile checking. The balcony was in the shade so we were never sitting out in it anyway. The bathroom was big enough too, shower looked a little flimsy but was actually really good. The kitchen had everything, cooker, micro, fridge, washing machine, coffee machine, kettle etc all utensils provided as well, only slight issue was with the cooker, the heat melted the plastic bit above the cooker, should have probably told management but it looked like it had been like that for a while so I'm sure they would know. The sofa was a bit dated but didn't mind as hardly in during day anyway. We were told the cleaners would be in 5 times a week but they only changed our towels and bed linen once and that was the day before we left! There is no heating or air con in these apartments so I'd advise you to take a big cardy for night time as a couple of nights it was freezing! The Algarve gets a cool breeze at night and was a bit cold at night in the apartment. I didn't use the pool, it looked a bit dirty to me but other people were in it and didn't seem to mind. The bar at the pool is expensive, I preferred going to the beach as drinks etc are cheaper plus much nicer view. Pool area was quiet, in fact the apartments were great for that, peaceful sleep! It's a 5 min walk to the beach from apartments however you need to get down a lot of stairs to get to the beach, I wouldn't say it's suitable for people with mobility issues. Overall a great stay at these apartments and good value for the price.
