Myself,hubbie and our 2 kids 2 and 4 stayed in Solario for 1 week from 30th Sep to 7th October and what can i say.Everything from the minute we booked apartment to getting there was amazing.Shirley could not do enough for us with her helpful recommendations,welcome pack and of course beautiful apartment.We were met by Juliette on arrival and what a lovely lady too and so informative. This apartment complex is child friendly and the apartment was stocked up with books and dvds. Dvds for children which i thought was brilliant as our 2 year old liked to take breaks from the pool!We rented a car but you could easily walk to strip or if you don't have young kids you could walk to the Old Town in Albufeira which is about 20/25min.We used to either drive or take a taxi which only cost €6 to Old town.We will definitely be back to this gem.
Stayed in appartment m . First floor .
fantastic appartment sleeps 6 fully equiped kitchen , front and back patio with balcony with lovely views from balacony . Fresh bed linen and towels .
Pools very clean and well kept .
Also on site was gym ,pool table, kids pool & play area .
5 mins walk to new town & 5 mins taxi to old town . Great restaurants and bars in both with entertainment most nights . Lots of shops & markets also in both areas.
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.
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!
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.
