Great apartment within 5 min walk to beach and square. Apartment itself is good size for 2 adults n 2 children anymore and may be bit tight. Had issue with wifi nothing to do with owner was providers fault but Gail took time out and sorted it which not a lot do. Thanks Gail. Only downside was smell from sink but spray deodorant and masks it. Typical Portuguese drainage. Balcony is fantastic was views to die for see photos. Roof terrace is accessed via steps and is great but not needed with balcony. Pool area is great and never crowded. Merlin pub is across from apartment see photo 2 can hear noise but nothing to annoy or keep awake.
If your looking 5 star go hotel if looking great apartment close to everything with homely feel chose this WE WILL BE BACK
A clean well furnished apartment in an excellent location for all that Albufeira has to offer. Not so good was the bar opposite which stayed open playing loud music until 4am. The apartment was really hot due to a lack of effective sun blinds and A/C which could only be activated manually as the remote did not work. The choice at night time either to open the window and endure the noise or have the fan whirling all night. [ it was unseasonable hot]
The lighting in the sitting area was none existent and generally poor throughout which made putting on make up a nightmare.There was also an awful intermittent smell of sewage coming from the bathroom; we even bought air freshener to try and contain it!
The view from the tiny balcony which is shown on the advertisement no longer exists as opaque glass has been installed resulting in a view of rooftops only when sitting on the uncomfortable balcony furniture
Unfortunately we will not be returning here.
The apartment was very pleasant, close to the beach and all the restaurants. Thank you Gail, it was perfect for our first trip in Portugal. I will recommend the apartment without hesitation.
Bay View was right in the heart of Albufeira Old Town and an easy walk to the beach and many restaurants and bars. It was modern and clean with great wifi, nice balcony with a great sea view. A real home from home! Bay View was extremely quiet on an evening and gave us a great nights sleep.
We will definitely stay again.Thanks Gail and Darren
