We booked the three bedroom apartment and were amazed by the size of the living area in addition to the double bedrooms. Together with the balcony there was room for a party! All the facilities were available including a washing machine and ironing board. We didn't do any cooking - too many great restaurants to try, but if we had...

We just got back from a great get away in Burgau. We have three kids, ages 1, 4 and 7 and relaxing can be tough. The beach was a short walk and such a lovely sound to wake up to each morning. The pool was really convienient for the children. They also had put some diapers and little baby items...

This is an excellent apartment/hotel with a very good restaurant. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The managers, Miguel and Zazinha, did everything they could to make us welcome. The location is stunning, set on the cliffs overlooking the bay. It couldn't have got any better. We will definately return and recommend it to our friends.

Myself and my husband stayed in these apartments for 6 days, they are fantastic! We had a one bed apartment which was very spacious and spotless, what made it even better was the balcony which has the most amazing view over the beach. Apartments are really quiet and even have the facility of a communal pool which even in August...

We struggled to find to find great places to stay in Burgau, but this is by far the best. On the hill overlooking the beach with fantastic views. The rooms were spotlessly clean, if a bit basic. Great for a family or a group.

We stayed at these apartments both in 2009 and 2010 and have booked for 2011, this time for three weeks! The apartments are spotless, the balconies are pleasantly shady during the times you want to eat, the view is breathtaking. The pool area is lovely especially since the cover was removed, and there are always plenty of sunloungers and cushions!...

Stayed a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The appartment was clean and well appointed. Watched the Swallows and Swifts from the Balcony as we overlooked the bay. Would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here.

If you're looking to get away from the Algarve crowds then this is the place. Nestled away on a cliff-top in Burgau with stunning views of the bay it really feels like you've escaped. Self contained apartments that are close enough to Lagos yet far enough away when you want to escape. Check out the breakfast place at the bottom...
