We have stayed at these apartments twice this year and will definitely go back. Our second stay was much more enjoyable than the first, mainly for the fact we paid a bit extra for a 1 bedroom apartment. The studios are very small and basic but the apartments are much much bigger and well equipped. We were given an apartment in a block behind the main complex which I believe is a new purchase. it was on the fifth floor so we had a lovely view out to sea. the apartment was absolutely massive, huge bedroom, bathroom and kitchen with a separate massive living room with flat screen satellite t.v (no English channels) our apartment was cleaned 4 times in the 10 days we were there, towels changed everytime, bedding changed once. Avelino is the owner and a very nice friendly man, he remembered us from before and even gave us a lift himself down to Lidl and showed us the bus to get back. The pool area is small and the sunbeds have seen better days but just buy a cheap lilo from the shop to lie on or get a mattress from reception for 2 euros a day. The area is residential so if you want a touristy area then stay in Villamoura and pay loads more! People need to remember the small amount you pay to stay here so don't go expecting 5* sea front apartments because they are not. There is a bakery at the front of the building (opposite side to reception) they do fresh bread, ice creams, cakes and also have a bar so you can get beer, wine and soft drinks. They do have a pool side snack bar aswell but is only open during the main summer months May - August. The area outside the apartments is very slightly run down, but it really doesn't matter what it looks like does it?! it isn't dangerous at all, we walked back late at night and never felt intimidated. yes they tell you to lock the shutters when you're out, but think about it, would you leave your windows and doors unlocked at home? no you wouldn't so why would you do it abroad?!! the beach is fantastic and only a 5 minute walk over the road. there are lots of lovely restaurants within a 5 minute walk. try bem bom which is out from the apartments down to the main road, turn left and its just along there on the left. also fantasia which is signposted from the beach. there are several supermarkets in the area aswell, however we found Lidl to be the best which is a mile along the main road, so walk there and get a taxi back for 6euros. The apartments are really well equipped so you wont struggle to cook extensive meals in there! you can also borrow an iron from reception for no charge. Please do not take notice of the negative reviews, all I can say is they are snobby people who were expecting 5* for such a small cost! we paid £300 each with flights for 10 nights so it shows how cheap it really is! you will have such a lovely relaxed holiday here, for such a small price!
