“Familymoon”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

After a lot of researching I found these apartments for our family moon (honeymoon with the kids) and was extremely impressed. (We visited August 2016 but we can't go back that far on trip advisor to add the actual month)

I was very apprehensive about booking separate flights and accommodation as we had a 6 month old, however, the communication between the owner of our apartment was fab. He responded to all enquiries and was understandable about my nervousnes.

The accomadation was spotless, 2 bedrooms, great size living room and kitchen and we had a brand new travel cot for our youngest.

All the apartments face the pool in a horseshoe style, allowing us to watch our 9 year old play safely in the pool.

The apartments are extremely safe, with a locked gated entry and locked shutters on the windows and doors, which were great to block out early morning sunshine.

We walked, with a buggy, to Albufaria main strip within 10 mins where it is bustling with bars and eateries, accomadating all tastes.

There was a supermarket at the bottom of the hill that the apartments are on which was quite steep and may be a struggle for some.

The beaches are stunning and are walkable or a little bus ride along.

Fab family moon and highly recommended.

“Brilliant apt”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stayed in this lovely apartment for 10 nights. Easy booking via Tripadviser and prompt reply from Shirley to confirm. Shirley provided a comprehensive document covering how to work TV/wifi/sun loungers/codes for gates and list of restaurants that she recommended. This was very useful! Met by Juliette after excellent transfer using Yellowfish(€64 return.) Very friendly welcome and reassuring to know Juliette lives nearby if we had any problems! Apartment was very spacious and air con excellent. Balcony catches sun in afternoon right to evening so nice chilling with a wine! Very close to the "strip"- 5/10 min walk. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from. Old town a bit further(30/40 mins) but only €6 in a taxi if it's too hot to walk.! Big supermarket at bottom of road which was ideal. Would definitely recommend this accommodation. The only thing I would mention is that it is up a slight hill....just a consideration for the less fit/elderly, especially in the heat and carrying supplies from supermarket. Fantastic holiday. Thank you!

Thank you so very much Elaine for your wonderful review of our home in Solario. We are so pleased that you had such a great holiday and enjoyed the facilities so much at Solario de Sao Jose. I am happy to read that your found my welcome letter beneficial and I will update my welcome letter to future guests with details on the shortcut through the housing estate beside us that takes 10 minutes off the journey to the old town escalators. For potential guests looking to stay at Solario, the distance to the old town square is 1.3km from Solario. I look forward to welcoming you and your family back to stay again in the future, warm regards, shirley

“Excellent accommodation, highly recommend”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

A fantastic apartment in a quiet residential area just 10 minutes walk from the busy Strip. 25 minutes walk to the Old Town. 2 minute walk to a Lidl style supermarket which Is very convenient. Very spacious apartments with a pool which was ideal for our 3 young children. Electric shutters on each window/patio doors act as a sunscreen which is a huge help keeping kids in bed in the morning. There's a large balcony overlooking the pool. Brilliant for eating out or just relaxing. Shirley, the owner is an absolute pleasure to deal with also. The apartment is large enough to comfortably accommodate a family of 5 or even 6 if needed. Kitchen is equipped with all white appliances which is very handy. I am planning on taking our family back to Albufeira next summer and hope to stay in this complex again.

Close to supermarket, restaurants, bars and take aways the apartment has everything that you need for the perfect family holiday. Far away enough from the strip to be peaceful but near enough to walk for an evening out.

“Perfect Location”

person found this review helpful

We recently stayed at Solario de Sao Jose and it was perfect for us. It was close to markets, restaurants, and old town, all within walking distance. The apartment building is on a dead end street which made it nice and quiet at night with a great view of the Atlantic from the balcony. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

people found this review helpful

Just returned from holidays in Salerio de Sao Jose,from the first contact with Shirley you were very helpful and quick replying to any questions. Your Appartment is excellent and tastefully decorated with all mod cons.
From our arrival at Faro airport transfer by Yellow Fish Taxi Transfer was first class on arrival at the Appartment we were met by Maria she showed around the Appartment and how things worked. The list of things to do and the list of restaurants was very helpful my favourite choice was Sao Domingos well worth the taxi trip.
The complex is very secure with key code entry and is well laid out and spotless.
I will be in touch in new year to book for next Sept.
Thanks Shirley for the use of your Appartment.
