“Fantastic,clean with excellent staff”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We were there from the 13th to 20th September in app 3a which is in the old block. We really loved this place, only 10mins from local mini market and the top of the strip and a 5/6 euro taxi ride into the old town.Also a shuttle bus three times daily which is great.Lovely clean apartment with staff who really made us feel welcome. Nice cool pool with plenty of loungers and great snacks at reception. Some great local places to eat round the corner from complex. No negatives about this place whatsoever,all good! Booked up to go back again next year before we left. Would highly recommend!

Stayed in the new block the apartments where very clean and spacious. They were cleaned 3 times during the week we stayed and fresh towels were provided. The only problem I had was that bed was too hard and the pillows had seen better days, either bumpy or really flat.
The girls on reception / bar were very helpful and friendly. We used the mini bus service they put on for 1 euro each we got the last one at 6pm most nights into the old town which suited us as we had two young children with us so we went out early for a meal and a few drinks. The taxi back was usually around 7euros for a 6 seater. Being out of the main area wasn't a big issue for us as we found it cheap to travel to the old town or did the 15 minute walk to the strip. We found plenty of places to eat for around 80 euros for 4 adults and 2 children plus drinks which we thought was very good value for the food we had.
There was a few nights that people kept us awake in the surrounding apartments but after complaining it did stop.
The pool area could be better but our kids enjoyed it they spent most days in the pool or playing on the grass area around it whilst we relaxed. They could do with replacing some of the delapidated sun loungers & buying a few more as there was a shortage, also really annoyingly they didn't object to people getting up at the crack of dawn and placing their towels on the best loungers then not appearing until well into the afternoon !
Pack insect repellant because you will need it.

Well...... Too far from everything!

Faulty equipment in kitchen which took days to sort! No shop nearby so as self catering had to do regular shop so we could carry it the 40 minute walk.

No entertainment.

Wifi available at a cost, but only in reception, which closes at 9pm!!!!

Pool very small & was too cold 2 swim in.

Never saw any of cleaners & only saw staff if we went to reception.
View from balcony was apartment block which kept sun from getting to us. Apartment was very small, kitchen had no oven but did have microwave, but not enough sockets!!!!

Would I return? No.

Me and my partner went for 4 days mon-fri and as soon as we arrived we were upgraded to a very nice apartment.

Pool is nice and the lady who i presumed was running the place was also very helpful.

Only slight issue is the distance from the old town which we much preferred.. Its either a 40 minute walk or 5 minutes in a taxi. The "strip" is about a 15 minute walk.

The apartments are quite a walk from the Old Town and the strip, so be prepared for a walk each day if you wish to venture out.
The apartment was lovely and the staff friendly and extremely helpful.The pool was great, not a vast amount of sunloungers but we were always able to find one.
Would recommend the open top bus tour as a way to acquaint yourself with the area and the boat trip was fantastic.
The biggest negative was the nearby garage. The mechanic would rev the car he was attempting to repair very early in the morning, causing a lot of the guests to be very angry!As other reviewers have commented there is no air conditioning. We were there in August and managed to sleep comfortably with the window open.
The apartments are cleaned twice a week and the towels are changed every other day.
Overall we had a really good stay here for the rate that we spent, however we are quite fond of a walk!!

Stayed for 2 weeks at Novochoro Apartments. Chose these apartments because had good reviews, however when we arrived there we were taken to a nice one bedroom apartment, which was beautiful, however when asked if it has air con in the room, was told no. Well I was a little shocked as in the main 2 weeks of August you need that basic essential. The description on holiday website, stated air con in rooms, we were told that only the studios had air con? I was a little confused as the studios do not normally house families but couples, well to me it made sense to put the air con in family apartments due to having children under 9. This straight away put a damper on my holiday. The apartment I could not fault it was tastefully designed and was very spacious indeed. The cleaner came in every other day and she was very thorough and very pleasant. The apartments are too out of the way for families, I took my 6 & 8 year old with me on holiday and it was a good 30-45 minute walk to the beach and 30 minutes to the centre, which is ok if you are a couple as I love to walk on holiday but the children were too hot to walk that distance, therefore had to keep getting taxis twice a day and at a cost of 25 euros each day was a good chunk out of my spending money. The pool facilities were inadequate, too small a pool and lack of sunbeds and parasols were all torn and broken, therefore the pool area and parasols need a facelift. Therefore we did not use the pool at all, used the beach each day instead. There was no entertainment on at all as only a very small complex which was very quiet at night. The had a group of Portugese or Spanish young girls staying in the apartment above, who were extremely noisy and disruptive till at least 3.00a.m each morning having parties every night which kept my children up each night. Although this sounds like a bad review it isn't, I think if the hotel puts in air conditioning in all rooms it would encourage more people to return. The staff though on the other hand were very helpful and polite, especially the young blonde lady, she was lovely even offered to help with our suitcases bless her when we arrived and she showed us to our apartment. I would definately recommend this small hotel to couples due to the location but not to families with small children. I had not been to Portugal before it was very beautiful but very very expensive to eat out. Costing 65 euros for 4 of us to eat out, with a main meal only plus a drink each! Due to how expensive Portugal is I do not think I would return again unless the cost of eating out was cheaper, your money just goes no where at all. The beaches were lovely especially santa Eualia Beach, worth a visit, a lovely small beach, nice and flat, not too overcrowded with many locals. Had to get a taxi down there and back though, just a short walk out of the new town down a hill. The Old Town is very quaint with a lot of character, loved it, but restaurants again very expensive. The Marina was a nice walk from Old Town which was very colourful, with Miami style apartments. Bars very reasonably priced, cheaper than Old Town. Overall had a lovely holiday, weather was very hot indeed, but is the main season so expected it. Take mosquito repellant with you as we all got bit mainly at night and take plenty of spending money as you are going to need it.
