Apartment was perfect for us (a young couple), pool was fantastic, balconies were great, absolutely everything was top class.

Location is good close to the old town, but we preferred to get taxis to other towns such as Gale Ti-Manuel (could be the wrong spelling but it is in welcome pack) was lovely. Taxis were very cheap around 7 euros to Gale and 17 to Villamoura.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. This apartment is really special with its wonderful balconies and sea and pool views and is perfect for all ages and winter and summer sun holidays, all year round. Ti-Manel is an excellent fish restaurant in Galé and I am glad that you gave it a try and siezed the opportunity to explore different areas in the Algarve. All of us at Algarve Getaways hope to welcome you back again.

Review of OR-IA - August/ September 2010

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 22, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
This was my first time organising a holiday without using a travel agent and I was slightly apprehensive. But from my initial contact with Barbara and Algarve Getaways to my departure from the apartment the experience was very positive and enjoyable.

The apartment was not like any holiday accommodation I had ever stayed in before. OR-IA is a large, bright, clean and spacious apartment with all the equipment you could possibly want. The views from the balcony off the living room were lovely, overlooking the tennis court and with the Marina and the sea in the distance. Towels and bedding were clean and fresh and the maid service mid stay was excellent. The swimming pool was the best I have ever seen - so clean and refreshing. The only slight negative - and this might seem like nitpicking - was the cushions on the apartment loungers. They could do with replacing.

The location was ideal for us. It was very quiet and peaceful. The one thing people should be aware of is the hills! There are hills all over Albufeira and while it didn't bother us, some people might find it difficult to negotiate their way to the Old Town which is a good fifteen minute walk. We had been there before so knew what to expect. While the walk down to the town in the evening was lovely keep in mind that it might be worth it to factor in an extra €5 for the return trip by taxi especially after a meal and a few drinks.

We had a wonderful holiday and came back well relaxed. We intend to return next year if it is at all possible and I would like to thank Barbara and Julie for their patience and advice, the driver who collected us and returned us to the airport at the agreed times, Howard who welcomed us to the apartment and the lady who did such a great job of cleaning the apartment. Really looking forward to a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are so pleased that you had such a wonderful holiday. The cushions on the sun loungers get stained during the summer by suntan lotion and fake tan and guests not always using beach towels and they are replaced before the start of the new season.
The walk into the Old Town averages 8 minutes; so I guess it depends on walking pace and where in the Old Town you would want to be. The bus does stop right outside the complex and another review states that the taxi cost them €3.90, so they must have had a friendlier driver!
The Algarve Getaways Team looks forward to welcoming you back again.

Our expectations were fully met

Since 2005 we have visited Albufeira twice every year for relaxation, sun, good meals, and to play golf. We are a married couple (63 and 54 years), and like everybody else we have experienced, that our demands increase from year to year. But finally with the apartment OR-IA we found that our increased demands were fully satisfied with this apartment, which we had for 29 vonderful days in July 2010, and therefore we have already made reservations for another 4 weeks next summer. - I can in fact only say that the descriptions of this property are exact down to the last point, and it was clean as well as well-maintained. The customer service included a welcome-package and was both swift and of high standard. - Often in the evenings we strolled down to the center of Albufeira (approx. 700 m.), and after having enjoyed a meal at one of the various restaurants and maybe experienced some of the night-life we normally walked back up the hill to the apartment, but it is also possible to take a taxi for the fixed price of only 3,90 €. - The quietness on the terrace with a view overlooking the landscape below and the ocean with a moonbeam on the surface combined with a last glass of local wine, while you recapture the best moments of the day, is then a fantastic way to make yourself ready for the new impressions, that you will have the next day in Algarve.

fabulous flat -really well equipped and furnished

Firstly, the photo does ot do justice to this apartment, the view is fabulous from the main balcony. It is also very large for a holiday apartment. The stylish modern decor is very refreshing. The kitchen has all you need,from coffee maker to wok.Throw in baking pans,lovely crockery, blender and juicer,griddle pan, even a keen cook like me had all the comforts of home. We didn't eat out once- we ate in lovely surroundings choosing one of our three dining tables within the property.The bathroom had a great powerfool shower, and a jacuzzi, you don't get that in a hotel.
The complex was a short walk from the town, but the walk back is all uphill, so budget for taxis home! the taxis are all Mercedes and clearly identifiable in organised ranks.
A cleaning fairy changes the linen etc mid week,
My only regret is that I never found the chance to use the lovely pool,but did enjoy listening to the water cascade in the morning whilst having breakfast on the smaller balcony.
There is a bar directly across from the complex, it looks realy scary,a bit like a a harem in Tangier, but give it a go if you like a little exotic! I was really surprised how much I enjoyed it.
it truly is a FAB property and really added to our holiday experience.

Hi just to say I spent a week at a beautiful apartment at Encosta da Orada and found it to be superb value for money. The facilities were of 5 star standard We were even greeted with a welcome pack which had all the basics to keep us going until we settled in. The apartment overlooks the fabulous gardens and swimming pool and to the west the view over the marina is superb.

A great time was had by all and we will be definately back.
