“A big thank you from The Walton's.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

On previous visits to Carvoeiro we have walked past Algar Seco and looked with envy. On another visit we decided to call for lunch and decided we must stay. We were given Catrieneta 8. A big apartment with wonderful views from the bridge (the balcony). From the very first contact to the end of our stay we were treated with courtesy efficiency but most of all with friendliness. Algar Seco knows how to do it. The rest need to learn but Algar Seco will still be in front. A two week stay with wine and a card for my birthday what a treat. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you to all the staff who must be the happiest we have come across in many years of self catering holidays.
Our very best wishes to all.
Ken and Carol Walton

Very spacious apartment with stunning views of the azure Atlantic. Friendly and helpful staff and very welcome wifi. This resort is on the top of the cliffs above the town, but in easy walking distance of a variety of excellent restaurants. The bar in the secluded cove is a real find. On site restaurant and bar provided excellent lunch and dinner, if a slightly limited menu. Heated outdoor pool meant we could swim at the beginning of the season. Overall a great early sunshine break.

Stayed for 4 nights for a birthday treat from the 29th April to the 3rd May and the whole holiday was amazing. Accommodation, location, company and a bottle of sparking wine from the staff at Algar Seco on the day could not be beaten. Booked again for the 7th October and already counting the days down. Thank you again Algar Seco for a wonderful birthday!

Had the most amazing time at Algar Seco Parque. The apartment we occupied was very clean, well maintained and the stafff was extremely friendly and helpful. Hope to return next year to stay another 3 weeks. We were there in mid February. We have stayed in Carvoeiro numerous times but this was the first time at Algar Seco and it has become my favourite place to stay.

Room Tip: I don't think there would be a problem with any room you occupy. They all have a view of the oc...

we have stayed in Carvoeiro many times but this was our first time at Algar Seco and will definitely return again. The accomodation and location are faultless. All the staff we came into contact with including those at reception, the restaurant, the gardeners and domestic staff were lovely. The bungalow was kept spotlessley clean and tidy. Everyone had a smile and was only too pleased to help us. The gardens and surrounding areas are beautifully maintained providing a wonderful addition to the amazing seaview from our private balcony. The location is very peaceful yet only a few minutes wallk to all that Carvoeiro has to offer. The rooms are beautifully furnished with all that you need for the most comfortable, relaxing and peaceful time. The complimentary gifts are a lovely touch.

Room Tip: all rooms have a sea view

This was our second time to Algar Seco. It is as fabulous as we remembered. Right from the effortless check in where they remembered us from three years ago, it was fab. Little touches add to a lovely friendly and personal experience, a complimentary shopping bag on arrival, bottle of wine and water waiting for us in the apartment, fresh flowers every day, spotless cleaning and a lovely gift of local salt on departure. Algar Seco has had some significant upgrades since our last visit new windows and shutters, air conditioning, upgraded kitchen, bathrooms and tvs. The apartments are traditional style, large balcony, spotlessly clean with fully appointed kitchens. The bathrooms are spacious and showers could have more pressure but not bad. It is a little piece of heaven.
The pool and bistro is very peaceful and relaxing and lunch is really delicious. You have plenty of choice on the menu. We were amused to see the same people as three years ago, I guess everyone wants to return to Algar Seco. It has everything you need for the perfect getaway.

Algar seco is a minute's walk from lovely restaurants Medici and Primavera. Then you have restaurants and bars all the way down to the beach. We didn't have one bad meal. The standards are really superb. This isn't the cheapest of spots but you do get you what you pay for. I couldn't recommend Carvoeiro and Algar Seco high enough. As always, resorthoppa for transfer is reliable and efficient.
Our only regret was that our stay was too short. We will return again.

We have stayed at Algar Seco 4 times over the past 2 years and it never loses it's charm. It is in the most amazing location overlooking the sea and the accommodation is spacious, airy and comfortable with enormous private sun terraces.
What makes it even more special though are the staff. They are all wonderful - nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to make your stay completely stress free in every way. As an example - our Swedish friends were joining us for a long weekend, and their luggage got lost. When hearing that the airline were being very unhelpful and hanging up on our friend, the receptionist at Algar Seco volunteered to make the phone calls for him and arranged for the luggage to be delivered to Algar Seco.
We will always return to this wonderful place.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom bungalows overlooking the pool or gardens are amazing.
