Once again, this year, our holidays were perfect.
We had an issue with the TV but was rapidly fixed (Thank you Denise and Jeff)
The house is well furnished and has everything you may need on holidays. It has a balcony were you can have breakfast or lunch enjoying the pool view and getting some sun
A short walk away to the taxi boat to get to the beach.
Plenty of restaurants nearby!
The 2nd time I have stayed at this apartment. It is spacious, bright, clean and well equipped, everything you need. Just a very short walk from restaurants, bars and supermarkets but far enough away to be nice and quiet. Denise arranged airport transfers and everyting ran like clockwork, easy to make contact with Jeff and Wendy if any issues when you are there, they are only about 10 minutes away.
Cabanas itself is fairly quiet but has plenty of places to eat and drink and easy access to Tavira or Faro. We used the train, about a 15 minute walk from the apartment, there is also a bus which stops right outside the apartment so a car is not needed. Cabanas beach is a short walk and 5 minute boat trip away and is lovely, though an idea to take your own beach umbrella as hiring the sun loungers on the beach is rather expensive (16 to 20 euroes depending on how close you are to the sea). We stayed in mid September after the schools had gone back and everywhere was busy enough to have a good atmosphere but not overcrowded. The weather was perfect. I hope to return in the future.
The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, gas cooker and air con. We stayed as a group of four but it could easily accommodate two more on the living room sofabed (kids especially.) Reserving sun loungers is discouraged so we were always able to get beds and (most) people kindly removed their towels when they left the pool area for a while.
Cabanas is a small, pleasant fishing town and the main waterfront is approx 3-minute walk from Cabanas Beach apartments. There is also a Spar supermarket at the end of the road (again 3 minutes) which sells everything you need for a self catering holiday.
The resort has loads of restaurants - we never discovered a bad one - specialising in seafood and meats. Prices are very reasonable. They get very busy from 8pm in the peak summer so go out early (7.15-7.30) or book the day before.
All in all, we'd highly recommend this apartment and can't wait to go back!
Stayed at this apartment for a week in July.Denise the owner was very professional to deal with,and any requests we had before traveling were dealt with immediately.
The apartment itself was clean and tidy,& had everything a family could possibly require.Being on the ground floor it has direct access to the pool area,which is ideal when traveling with young children.
The pool area was well kept & had a nice relaxed atmosphere.The local shops and restaurants are just a short stroll from the complex.Thanks again Denise,and I'm sure we will return in the future.
We have stayed at this apartment before as it has everything and more you would want.
Great space, great location and plenty to do locally. All necessary amenities in the spartment and the local agents live in Cabanas should you ever need their help.Plenty of places to eat out but be aware if you are going in June/July/ August it is necessary to book restaurants in advance. Would recommend A Grehla, Sabores da Ria and Noella & Jeronimo.
Tavira is just a bus ride away. Santa Luzia is a little further on and is the "octopus capital". Shop around for car hire and its often cheaper from Faro airport if you plan to have it for the duration. Vila Real is a 20 minute drive and you can get the Ferry to Spain!! Lagos is a good drive to the western Algarve but worth a day out. Looking forward to going back in September. Thanks Denise!!
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Cabanas and the apartment was home from home .
I assume the settee was comfortable as we never sat in it.
We spent the whole holiday outside on the terrace
We will definitely be returning .

If you are staying in the lovely little village of Cabanas then this apartment is a perfect choice. It is 2 minutes from the restaurants/bar area and also the little boats that take you across to the wonderful beach. We were met by Tom at the apartment who was very friendly and gave us all the information we needed for a hastle free stay, the apartment was spotless and had lots of little extras that you would not normally expect even down to a chilled bottle of wine and beers in the fridge. Cabanas is not the resort if you are looking for late night clubs/bars but is perfect for a chilled out family or couples holiday and we will most likely return in the future!
