About Jackie Halls

Having spent many holidays in the Central Algarve region over the years I came across Sao Rafael 5 years ago and after returning every year since I decided to buy the apartment in January 2014.

Jackie Halls purchased this Apartment in 2014

Why Jackie Halls chose Sesmarias

Sao Rafael has wonderful beaches and great restaurants yet it remains untouched by mass tourism.

What makes this Apartment unique

The apartment is beautifully situated in a quiet corner of the complex yet with all the amenities close by. The covered south facing terrace is a real sun trap in the winter months yet offers plenty of shade in the height of summer. The ability to spread out into the garden is a real bonus.

                                                              Great apartment in a great location

                                                              James D.Preston, Lancashire

                                                              A lovely modern and airy apartment with all the facilities and equipment for a fantastic holiday. Two beautiful beaches within walking distance, great for snorkeling. We spent the mornings by the beach and the afternoons at the pool, always able to get enough sunbeds. Carlos the doughnut man visits both the beach and the pool, which was great for a snack as the pool snack facilities were not open. We were met by Richard when we got to the apartment who gave us a comprehensive overview of what was where, and he was always on hand if needed - nice friendly guy.

                                                              One of our holiday highlights was going parasailing (three of us went up together incl. 10 year old son) - Algar experience go from the marina, would highly recommend. Plenty of restaurants in the area to walk to, or a taxi to the old town was less than 10 euros each way where there are restaurants to suit every taste and pocket.

                                                              Unfortunately I was taken ill on our last day, and ended up at the hospital/walk in centre - treatment was great and cost about 20 euros. Care couldn't have been better.

                                                              Our week holiday wasn't long enough and we would love to go back again. Highly recommend this apartment.

                                                              Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. It is always good to hear that guests enjoy the apartment and its location as much as I do. I hope you come and stay in the apartment again, you will be very welcome.
