“Great location, Fabulous accommodations, Helpful property manager!”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My wife and I spent six weeks at Apartment Do Sol from January 30 to March 12th this year, 2017. The location is excellent, just minutes from Fisherman's Beach and Ole Town. Supermarkets are within a 10 minute walk. Also, around 20-30 minutes walk to the 'Strip' where all the bars are located. The view from the balconey is just stunning, especially the sunsets. The apartment was renovated in 2016-17 so it was just like brand new. The temperatures that time of year during the days were in the high teens - low 20's , falling down to 8 - 10 (Celsius) at night. There were several other Canadian couples staying in the complex (high teens - low 20's was much better than the snow and freezing temperatures at home in Canada). The property manager, Philippa was a charm to deal with, especially since her parents lived in the town. The only drawback we had during that time of year was that the Havana Club was on the other side of the street and the weekend of Carnival Week, it got very noisy. That would not deter us from visiting again since we are booked for the same complex again for seven weeks the winter of 2018.

“Fantastic location, although the apartment is in need of some refurbishment!”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment is on the top story of the complex, and from the terrace it commands a fabulous view over Albufeira, and to the beach beyond.
The apartment was clean and tidy and contained most of what we needed.
The owner organised very prompt and reasonably priced transfer arrangements to and from the airport.
On the down side, since we are in our mid-seventies, we found the 46-step climb quite tiring.
The door was extremely stiff and difficult to force open!
The beds were very low to the ground, and for me, at 6 feet tall, on the short side!
The sun shade awning was out of commission!
If these matters were included in a general refurbishment, we would have no hesitation in returning again!

Dear Garth. Many thanks for your review - the views are amazing eh? Thank you also for bringing to my attention the door issue, which could have been dealt with whilst you where in the apartment but I will ensure is immediately dealt with now. Regarding the sun awning, this was damaged just prior to your stay when left out in windy conditions. The new material was ordered but arrived at the incorrect size so had to be re-ordered. My apologies that this could not be fixed during your stay. The awning is now fully operational. The beds are (hotel beds) slightly larger in width and length than the usual single bed but, I do appreciate that the length for taller individuals could be an issue. I certainly hope you will stay again and should you decide to do so, please call the number in the welcome book should there be something extra you require or anything you need addressing as we will always endeavour to assist where possible. It would be a pleasure to have you stay again. Kindest regards. Philippa

“Stunning large balcony and views”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Book with confidence, Philippa is very thorough with her arrangements and instructions.
I was a bit concerned as we were arriving at 01.00 but you can get the keys to the apartment anytime following Philippa's instructions. If you have a problem when your there she will quickly remedy it for you. The large sun bathed balcony and views are marvellous and that's where we spent most of our time. You won't be disappointed. The apartment is fully equipped, clean and comfortable. The swimming pool, recently refurbished, and sun terrace is a lovely place to relax.

“Convenient for old town”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Excellent service from Philippa Ward. The views are brilliant from the large balcony and easy walk down to old town and beach. Up a steep hill and a few flights of stairs to apartment so may be a problem for people with mobility issues. A little dated but well equipped and spotless apartment, unfortunately no wifi on complex and snack bar wasn't open by pool when we stayed there.
