Set high above Albufeira this apartment gives you plenty of choice of things to do! Laze around the pool, enjoying a chat with your neighbours or a refreshing drink from the on-site cafe. If you like your privacy there is the balcony or downstairs terrace to sit in the sun. Something new this year is the chance to eat your evening meal in the windmill itself! For the more energetic there is lots to do and see down the hill in the Old Town and the walk back up burns off a few calories. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need right down to toys for the kiddies. This is our 3rd visit and so long as we keep fit enough for the walks we will definitely go again.
Perfect holiday from start to finish! Excellent location - peaceful and ideally situated with a short walk to the old town. Fantastic large pool with shallow area - perfect for our 4 year old! We ate at the pool bar a few times - lovely food every time. For a special treat visit the restaurant inside the windmill - great experience with amazing views. Staff really helpful and friendly. Our accommodation was spacious, clean and fully equipped (great BBQ area!) - and provided an ideal base for relaxing with beautiful gardens. This was our second visit and hopefully not our last!
Where do we start???.....
The apartment was everything we wanted and needed!!....
From the moment we booked the owners of the apartment were on hand to answer any questions we had and nothing was ever too much trouble.
Location of the apartment was great......the pool is 100 metres from your doorstep and there are plenty of sun loungers available so you don't have to rush out at 7am in the morning to put your towel on a sun lounger to reserve it. There is also a mini market at Windmill Hill next to the pool where you can pick up things such as bread, milk, food, sun cream and other essentials.
Supermarket is 5/10mins walk away where you can get practically everything which is really handy.
The apartment is suitable for couples and families with everythng you need in the apartment including washer, dishwasher, DVD player and the added bonus of free WIFI. Even better the apartment has two sun terraces which are both south facing so you can relax early evening on the terrace whilst you watch the beautiful sunset with a nice cold beer.
Albufeira Old Town is a short 5/10 minute walk downhill where you find lots of fantastic restaurants to suit all tastes, bars with great live music along with entertainment in the square and plenty of shops to pick up souvenirs. If you are feeling energetic then you can walk back to the apartment all be it uphill but if you don't fancy walking you can catch a taxi home for 4-6 euro's.
As I said at the beginning of the review.....it was everything we needed and wanted.
We would highly recommend the apartment to anyone who is looking for a lovely apartment in Albufeira.
We will definitely be returning!!.....
This is our second time at the Windmill Hill apartments and we'll definitely be back. The house was perfect, spotlessly clean and tidy and a real home from home. The pool area wasn't too busy, although if you want the privacy of sunbathing at the apartment the patio and upstairs terrace are large enough for 3 or 4 sunbeds. The location is about a ten minute walk from the old town so nice at quiet at night, and just around the corner from a good supermarket. Also the owners arranged taxi transfers for us to and from the airport which was helpful.
