“Very nice flat in quiet surroundings”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

The flat is located on the first floor and was very clean. The kitchen had a stove, microwave, fridge-freezer etc. The flat also had the all important air conditioning unit and electric blinds, and a balcony with a view of the swimming pool and tennis court.

The area was quiet (which is exactly was we were looking for!) as it is a bit outside the town centre, so I would recommend either to hire a car at the airport as we did, or use taxis whenever you want to go to the town centre/shops.

There is a local (small) beach about 10 minutes walk from the flat. You can drive down there if you have a car.

The only 'negative' thing was that there was no direct access to the swimming pool from the flat - you have to walk around the block and go through a bar. But it was only 200m from the flat, so no big deal. Also, the TV only had Portuguese channels.

Great experience, great surroundings, and the owners of the bar are very friendly. A very good family-oriented holiday.

“Nice Apartment, but with reservations”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at the Luisa Apartments in August (my wife and daughter), and were pleased with the apartment itself - spacious and very clean.

We were disappointed with the location, however - 15 minute walk to the beach via a dusty track, and no shops or restaurants nearby (other than the Maritur Hotel - fairly limited menu).A car is an absolute essential, as Albufeira is 45 minutes walk away.

There is a small snack bar at the pool adjoining the complex.

The internet connection is very poor - intermittent at best (it works at the cafe mentioned above)

“Quiet but good”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The apartment was in good condition except couple of minor issues that could be easily overcome. The owners were not present due to Nuno being ill and I sincerely hope he got better. Nevertheless we were met by Lurdes's sister who helped us settle in for which we are very thankful. The property is a bit far from the town and the area was very quiet at the time. My wife and I decided to go out for a drink around the place and it seemed abandoned only to find couple of evenings later that majority of people were in the center of Albufeira town where there are plenty of restaurants and bars with great atmosphere.The beach that is nearest to the property, although beautiful, it is not suitable for young children due to to many rocks. Sao Rafael beach which is about 15-20 min walk is a lot better option closest to the property but my kids preferred the big one in Albufeira town which requires a taxi that will set you back around €10 one way for a family of five. The highlight of our stay was the pool and the cafe which we almost had it for ourselfs. Katerina, the lady in the cafe was very pleasant and my wife thought she makes the best sangria ever. Also, if going with kids I would definitely recommend taking a trip to Slide and Splash, great fun to be had.
