“Excellent apartment, close to the beach and restaurants”

Had a fantastic stay with my family in this apartment. To start with Paulo and Claudia are excellent to deal with and always responded promptly to our queries. We arranged for Paulo for airport transfers and this was a great decision. He was there waiting for us and before we arrived at the apartment he showed us around Praira da Rocha which was really helpful. On arrival at the apartment we were met by Claudia who also showed us around. They are both lovely people. The apartment itself is great. I believe it is just over a year old and had all the amenities for a relaxing stay. Most of the other apartments are owned by overseas or Portuguese visitors. As such there were days when we were the only users of the pool which was great. I must say the owners we did meet were really friendly and would always offer advice and guidance if we had any questions. The beach and restaurants are only a short 5-10 minute walk away. We particularly enjoyed the Waterfront which is at the end of the marina. Across the road from the apartment is a pizza takeaway which we used a number of times and the quality was excellent. There is a local shop within 5 minutes where you can get all the necessities. The only downside, though it did not bother us, is that there is a busy road which runs opposite the apartment. Some may find this a little noisy though we did not find it a problem.
Overall a great apartment in a great location.

We have just returned from a week at praia de rocha, the apartment was great for a family of 4 ( 4 adults) it was very clean and well presented and very close to the beach .We arranged with Paulo collection and return to the airport and he was punctual and took the stress out of the transfers.
We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone thinking of visiting the area and we hope to return someday in the future.

Lovely clean modern apartment with balcony overlooking the pool. All facilities, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, air con, etc. Never any problems with sunbeds as 4 allocated to apartment and never too busy round pool. Lovely large pool with showers and toilets. Great location, no need for car, five mins walk to gorgeous beach, restaurants and supermarkets. Paulo was great, very helpful and friendly and transported us to and from airport. A lovely resort and great holiday.

“great well equipped apartment in ideal location very close to restaurants,bars and supermarkets”

Paulo the owner picked us up at the airport. the apartment was clean and spacious for our needs. I was travelling with my wife and two teenage children. It is well equipped with everything you would need , TV, Wifi, cooking utensils, if you decide to stay in and cook for yourself. I made good use of the coffee machine and Paulo had very kindly got me capsules for it. The main strip is only a 5 minute walk away up a slight hill which you can see from the balcony of the apartment which overlooks the pool which is large. 4 sun beds and an umbrella are supplied with the apartment which was great meaning you could come and go when you liked. the beach is beautiful and again only 5 minutes walk away. it has a wooden Boardwalk from one end right down to the Marina end and a number of restaurants along it. to hire 2 sun beds and an umbrella was very cheap, only 10 euros for the day. you can walk along the beach to quieter coves further along which again were beautiful. We travelled by taxi to Alvor one evening which is a lovely fishing village and was well worth the visit. Cost about ten euros each way. There are many restaurants, bars and cafes along the main strip in Praia da Rocha and off it which can all be walked to from the apartment in about ten minutes at most for the furthest away. We ate out every night as the food was great and also very reasonably priced. Also plenty of shops to peruse. Plenty of bars with TV screens for sport and entertainment by way of guitar/singers. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The resort was great and the apartment was really good. also had use of two bicycles belonging to Paulo. Paulo left us back to the airport and returned the safety deposit to me before leaving the apartment. I would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments. They are great and as described. Paulo was very good from the moment I booked and goes out of his way to help.

Had a fabulous holiday with three of my friends. Apartment was spotless and very modern, fully fitted kitchen which was great as we ate in a couple of nights because everything we needed was there. Paulo was very quick to respond when we had a slight problem with the key and he had someone out too see what the problem was within an hour of me contacting him :-). The resort itself has plenty for every age to enjoy.
Would definatly recommend Paulos apartment, the best I have ever stayed in!
