Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Andrew, Just returned from our two weeks holiday at the Solcosta Apartments.It was really terrific.The apartment, pool complex and service were all wonderful and being away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts was just perfect for us.The apartment position overlooking the pool was ideal also-thank you for that;maybe you could arrange for us to have the same apartment next year ?? We will definitely be returning.

Thanks again John and Katrina Duncan & girls( e-mail address of Mr/s Duncan can be supplied on request )....Just felt we should write to thank you for a lovely holiday, totally helped by yourself. The apartment and it's surroundings are beautiful, clean, spacious and perfect for a Family holiday.Our friends who were staying over in Vale de Parra were very impressed with what we had and what we paid for it.All in all, we had a wonderful holiday and were only sorry we didn't take 2 weeks.Next time!

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Andrew,

At home in Ireland again...missing the sun. I want to thank you very much for being so kind and welcoming in booking our holiday in Solcosta Apartments. We had a wonderful wonderful time Andrew.

The transfer from and to the airport was great that you helped organising. We asked for a 1st floor apartment if possible and that is what we got, thank you Andrew. The bright apartment had plenty of room for the 3 of us and a balcony. It had aircondition which was great when it got very warm. The kitchen was equipped for a bit of cooking if you wanted to.

We mostly ate out in the evenings between staying in the village or going into Albufeira. We took a taxi which costed 9-10 Euros one way ( about 5 km ). There was a local bus around the corner from the hotel to Albufeira. You would have to change buses half way at the Albufeira Camping and costing the same as the taxi we were told. Therefor we used the taxi instead. If you were hiring a car there was a small carpark to park in.

Ferreiras is a lovely calm and quiet village with butcher, supermarket, a morning market selling fish, fruit and vegetables, small bakery, few cafes within walking distance and some restaurants. Everyone were so nice and friendly.

If you want a lot of bars and night clubs, Albufeira would be a better choice but if relaxing and staying in a smaller place is your thing, Ferreiras could be for you.

Also a big huge thank you to Gomez, Jose, Sergio, the lady in the laundry, the cleaning ladies and all the staff at Solcosta. If guests needed anything there was no problems to ask the staff.

We are all hoping we can go back soon again. Thank you once again Andrew and everyone else at Solcosta.

Regards

Claudia Brendan and Nicole.

27th aug to 1st sept Solcosta Apts

  • 5 of 5

we have just returned from a fabulous break in the Algarve staying in a one bedroom self catering apartment. The apartment was very clean and very spacious. The dining table in the apartment was broken when we arrived but was promptly replaced. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The nearby supermarket and fruit and veg market was only a short walk away and enabled us to buy everything we needed very easily indeed. The little kind lady in the coffee shop nearby arranged all our taxi's for us. We will not hesitate recommending these apartments to our friends and relatives. Oh and one last thing....we had three balconies.....great for following the sun around!

What a lovely week we had!

  • 5 of 5

We found the Solcosta apartments on the internet and booked with no recommendations from anyone so we crossed our fingers and hoped it was as good as it looked! We were not disappointed, what a lovely find, we were made welcome from the start.

The apartment was clean and spacious, if i want to be critical, the only problem was that the cooker was older than me and didn't work but who wants to cook on holiday!!! We had a 2 bed apartment with balcony overlooking the lovely large and very clean swimming pool. The week was so relaxing, there was no fighting over sunbeds and quiet late evenings on the balcony, bliss.

We ate locally a couple of times, at first it appears that there isn't much around the apartments but once you explore there are restaurants and bars to be found. We got a taxi into the Old Town on other nights which only cost 7 euros each way and took no longer than 10 mins, we loved the Old town, it was much bigger than expected.

Lastly i would like to give Gomesh (I think thats how you spell it) a special mention, he is a LEGEND! Not only did he run the snack bar and cook the best burgers and toasties, he was so welcoming, friendly and helpful, thank you Gomesh.

I would 100% recommend this place to anyone and we will definately be back.

Many thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your great review ! Really happy you have enjoyed your stay. We have added a note on the cookers to avoid confusion that one of the hot plates is off and the other 3 can be used. Gomes was really happy when he has seen what you wrote about his burgers, thank you very much ! Hope to hear from you some time in the near future. Best wishes Andrew

Solcosta 1 bedroom apartment - September 08

  • 5 of 5

The facilities provided were excellent, rooms very comfortable and the property located conveniently for visiting all parts of the Algarve. Very good pre-visit information.

The pool was excellent, very clean and like all the rest of the grounds, very well maintained, room service very good -ample clean linen, towels etc..

At the time of our visit the snack bar etc. were not in use but the bar at reception was available with friendly service.

Close to Albufiera where there are loads of restaurants - the Three Crowns is very good, a little difficult to find but well worth the effort.

Altogether a very enjoyable holiday.

Recommended - my son and I will certainly come again.

Great appartment!

  • 5 of 5

Last month we went to Solcosta. It was perfect! We enjoyed our staying. The people are so nice and make you feel really welcome. The cafe is nice to sit and the burgers are perfect! We hope to come back next year.

The appartments are nice and it's just as good as it seems! It was also really clean. We were there 1 week and it was cleanded twice.

We just went togehter, we're a young couple (22 years) and we loved it (just be togheter). There were also families what was no problem.

We went to the Algarve Shopping by taxi and also to the marina of Albufeira and the centre of Albufeira (the reception made sure we had a good taxi).

Kind regards

Atty & Amjad

Algarve is a region renowned for its mild and sunny climate, its miles of glorious sandy beaches with their stunning rock formations and its excellent sport facilities. It boasts an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year. It’s mild all year round with virtually no rain in the summer months. February sees the start of the spring and it's warm in October. The old town of Albufeira which perches on the cliff top overlooking the beach, retains a distinctive Moorish character and you can still see the fisherman bringing in their catch on Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman’s beach) There are two excellent local restaurants with bars open until late just 50 metres from the resort and two more within 5 -10 minutes walk (one of them serving only famous chicken piri-piri at fantastic prices!) Algarve Shopping with large food store, many restaurants, bowling and cinemas is only a few minutes by car as is Zoomarine, Albufeira Marina, water parks and golf.

Golf: There are currently 25 courses in the space of 100 miles of coastline, with more under construction. Most of the Algarve golf courses are within half an hour drive from our Resort, some only 15 minutes. Over the last few years the Portuguese Open has been hosted variously at Penina, Villa Sol and Sao Lourenzo, all of which may be included in the list of top European championship courses. Warm playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve. Whatever your level of skills or dedication there is a course for you in the Algarve.
