FANTASTIC! Block F 1A - Our fourth stay in this Lovely modern apartment
Apartment 1 F 1A Mr & Mrs Frampton’s: This is our fourth visit and we will definitely keep coming back.
The apartment itself was in a perfect location because of the breathtaking views over the sea area, on a few occasions we would sit out and watch the boats in the Marina off in the distance, which made for a very peaceful end to the day. Even during the daytime, when it we fancied somewhere cooler, there is a second shaded balcony to the side of the lounge which was a welcome relief after spending all day on the beach.
Before coming to Encosta Da Orada, we had stayed at a complex we which was at the top end near the busy dual carriageway and we could not get any sleep. Having now stayed here four times, we decided it was worth a write up and I am happy to state that 1A is quiet, peaceful and thankfully you can cannot hear or see the main road.
The apartment is furnished to a very high standard and has a very welcoming atmosphere upon entering. Liked the sofa’s too, we have something quite similar at home.
The apartment has everything we needed, e.g. tennis rackets and some beach toys, which stopped us having to go out and buy some cheap paddle bats which we’d only leave behind anyway. The DVDs were a nice bonus too!
During our stay, we also had the pleasure of meeting the cleaning team (Liz), who helped us at one point when we had accidentally locked ourselves out one evening. After hearing Liz was round in 5 minutes, she even took us shopping one day and she really has a heart of gold.
As for the area, there were plenty of nice restaurants and shops, my favourite being the Argentine steak house at the top of the Marina. It has set a benchmark now for what I expect when I eat steak, and is now a required visit each time.
Before our first visit I did read one comment about location which concerned me to begin with, regarding the hill and the distance from town. After seeing the place myself, it became evident that the high up views are an equal trade off for the trip up the hill. The peace and quiet is what you get for moving out of town. Personally, I found the silent nights and reasonable walk into the old town a pretty fair trade off for the location. Overall I found the experience very enjoyable, found the apartment very relaxed and with a pleasant atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it and I look forward to seeing what’s new on our next visit!
