“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had the pleasure of spending a week for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in apartment N (1st Floor) of the Sao Vicente complex. It has 2 very roomy bedrooms, immaculate bathrooms (1 en suite), large lounge area with TV/DVD player and excellent balconies on both sides of the apartment, with the main one directly overlooking the pool. It is very well equipped and has every conceivable amenity that you could ask for in a holiday let. The Wi-Fi in particular was excellent throughout our stay. The complex itself is very tidy and has an excellent family-friendly pool area which we were pleasantly surprised to find very quiet. Albufeira "strip" is a short 10 min walk away which is perfect if you do not want to be too close to the lively night life in this area. The Old Town is a short taxi ride away (approx. 4-6 Euros depending on time of day) or a 35min walk for the more active types. There are numerous restaurants in the immediate vicinity and a few quieter bars for a chilled out drink. From our first phone call from Faro airport until our departure, the owners and staff were amazing and could not have been more helpful - even assisting in reuniting me with my favourite sunglasses which I had left behind on departure day - terrific customer service. We would definitely use this apartment again when we return to the Algarve and will be recommending it to all our family and friends.

“Spacious, well located two bed apartment”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at this apartment at the end of August/early September 2016 for eight nights. From the very first contact through numerous queries and unusual questions before we had even booked, Sharon was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much for her and she answered all questions promptly.

The apartment is very spacious and well laid out. It is in a very good location, between the beach and "the strip", within easy reach but not too close to either so you get the best of both worlds. On arrival, there were a few minor cleaning issues but when this was brought to Sharon's attention, she made sure these were noted and actioned for the future. Overall the apartment is very clean, bright and a great size. There are no photos of the kitchen on TripAdvisor but it is modern, spacious and well equipped (we bought a wok which we considered an "essential" for cooking but otherwise it had everything). There is plenty of storage space in each room. There is a safe, iron and hairdryer. There are also loads of DVDs in English to suit all tastes and a large selection of books but the weather was so good, we didn't need these.

The view from the balcony off the living room is out to the pool area yet you have privacy. I don't know if it was good luck as it was late August but the pool was never very busy. There were plenty of sun loungers so I wouldn't envisage any problems at any time really.

There is also a lovely large terrace off the kitchen which does not really get a mention but it was a gem for me as it was a slightly cooler place to spend time during the hottest part of the day. It is facing a quiet road with very little traffic passing because there isn't really much beyond this apartment block. From this terrace, there is also a view of the apartment garden with its beautiful palm trees and I really enjoyed eating lunch while watching the greenery.

I travelled with a four year old child and am always concerned about the balconies/terraces but I could relax because both terraces have a wire mesh covering and so there's nowhere for little feet to climb!

The apartment complex is a mix of residents and tourists and generally quiet and peaceful however unfortunately there are two dogs across from this apartment who can bark as people approach the complex at night. One other minor issue is that our son complained that his bed in the twin room was a little uncomfortable.

There is a good supermarket within about a five minute walk along with a load of restaurants and bars. There is also a great Indian restaurant just minutes walk called "Balti Indian Tandoori". It's not glam and it's tucked in a corner off the main road but the food is delicious and the staff are very friendly and extremely accommodating for differing food requirements.

There is just one set of keys to the apartment and obviously a second set would be very useful. Take note that the patio doors have no handle to access the apartment once closed from the outside and you could potentially be locked out.

Overall this is a great apartment in a fabulous location and I would definitely recommend it.

Thank you so much for your kind words and informative review, I am sure future guests will very much appreciate all the tips and information you have taken the time to write about. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and its location, and despite the cleaning issues you mentioned that we discussed during your stay, we are very grateful for your understanding. We have taken note of your comments also, and plan during the winter period to get new photography of the apartment including the kitchen and will in future provide guests with a second set of keys. If you decide to visit the Algarve again, we would love to welcome you back, Best wishes, Sharon

“Great apartment in quiet location but close to shops & restaurants”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were really impressed with the apartment and the overall service. Sharon sent us multiple comms with guides and recommendations and regularly checked that everything was OK during our stay. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed (even umbrellas and towels for the beach!) and 100 metres away from the shops and restaurants. The beach is 10-15 minutes away and great place for kids and adults with water sports centres, restaurants and convience stores.
We loved it!
