I am amazed by people who review these apartments and complain about the stairs or the hill( loose weight!) . Dont be put off ( even Monte Carlo has hills and the best views cost a fortune.) We are both in our 60s and found the "gentle climb" up from the vibrant " Old Town" in 10 minutes EASY with lots of bars and restuarants on the way up/down the location of Jardim is just fantastic. We found Jet 2 holidays great value for money and exceeded our expectations. The flights on JET2 were in new aircraft with roomier seats, no anoying music, no Tvs and good baggage allowance . Transfer was "Rep free" by coach both ways and we didnt feel as if we were being hearded about like demented sheep. I e`mailed the Jardim and asked for a "Room with a View , Top Floor , Sea view , quiet location . Quite a list ,but they came up with everything , outstanding views right over the bay. ( Complainers about the hill .... thats what you get.. an outsanding view across the town and bay, at low cost. The apartment was all we expected and included , fridge with Ice Box, nice bathroom with powerfull shower, lovely sunny balcony with two seats and table. two beds ( a bit hard) and then small kitchen area with all the equipment you need , plates cups etc, cooking pots pans etc Oven and microwave. The room size was larger that most B and B or Hotels so, just what we needed for an independant stay at low cost. Only 400 yards from our appartment was a small " open all hours" supermarket called Fruitas Alerfaria (Coke sign outside) ideal for all we wanted serf catering wise ( and great value) for all your water, bread, etc etc. I would say these apartments suit all groups( families, groups, couples and singles, retired etc) apart from those with mobilty difficuties.. ask for ground floor . We timed walking to the Old town and it takes just SEVEN minutes. Same applies to the beach access through a tunnel which was one of the best beaches weve been on. ( And we travel a lot...) . Bonus that you can hear the waves crashing on the sand at night from the apartments. One night though we had a lot of noise from some "typical drunks" and security were called and acted immediatly. In summary, yes this place could do "with updating" but you get what you pay for and the Pools Bars and Restuarant and public areas and gardens are all well maintained , its spotlessly clean everywhere, good maid service every day and the complex has bags of character in a great location . The kids have a small pool, lots of shade and sun beds available but be prepared for a few steps with buggies. Three nice tennis courts available as well. We would go back again and would recommed the Jardim apartments
