“Excellent apartment and complex!”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We cant recommend this apartment enough. We travelled as a family with our two children (age 6 and 3). The apartment was clean, had lovely furnishings, and had everything you needed for a family holiday. The beds were comfy, and the children loved having a DVD player in their bedroom to watch in bed in the morning! Both bedrooms have air con, however this wasn't needed (despite an exceptionally hot June in Portugal) due to being able to sleep with the bedroom doors/windows open and the shutters locked. It felt like a home from home. The owner (Anne) rang us when we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed, and lives locally so was reassuring that she was available if was needed (especially when holidaying with children).

The apartment was ideally positioned for us, being near the main pool where the children's club was located, and the top pool for the children's park. However, also felt very private due to where it was located. There's also a shuttle bus that runs twice a day from the bottom of the road (10am and 5pm) to the Old town. We used to get this, or walk into the town (approx 1mile walk) and get a taxi home (never over 5 euros). The complex has everything you need for a fabulous family holiday and was clean.

Thanks to the owners for an amazing family holiday, we will be back!

“Fantastic Apartment”

We have used Owners Direct for the last 10 years and this apartment is the best so far! The south facing balconies provide sun all day long and the complex has 4 pools which are spotless. The complex is beautifully maintained and a tip to anyone thinking of booking this apartment is to get a map of the complex because it's so big it's easy to get lost (we did!). The owners, Jim and Ann are lovely people and Jim provided the transfers which was really good because he gave us useful info on the area. There is a really good, cheap bar/cafe 200 metres left from the entrance to the complex which provides really good snacks and drinks at ridiculously low prices. We wouldn't have known this if it wasn't for Jim telling us about it. I would recommend this apartment without a moments hesitation, it's that good!

“Perfect even if you are fussy!”

Clean, convenient, owners are unbelievably responsive, friendly and helpful. Even the smallest details are taken care of. Airport transportation arranged. Apartment even had beach towels and beach toys! And every item you could ever want. Balcony is great for sunbathing or enjoying a glass (or 2) or wine in the evening. If you stay there, you must buy a bag of oranges from the roadside stall opposite the entrance to the complex! A juicer is provided in the apartment... finest fresh orange juice we've ever had!

“Five star place to stay!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

An excellent place to stay. The apartment had everything that you needed for a relaxing holiday. A very clean and comfortable place to stay and the owners have thought of everything that you would need for your holiday to run smoothly. The apartment is ideally placed for all the amenities on the complex, which include a well-stocked supermarket and a choice of places to eat. It was lovely to have a choice of which swimming pool to use! Old Town Albufeira is only a 25 minute walk or sometimes we used the free minibus or a taxi, which was about 5 euros. We were collected and returned to the airport by the owners, which we found made it more friendly and personal. The owners were very helpful and informative and if there was anything that we needed, which we didn't, the owners were only a phone call away. We can't wait to book again and go back there.
