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!

Lovely relaxing holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this resort two times previously and we hadn't been for four years and were keen to return. Andrew was very helpful and made the booking process extremely easy, he also arranged the airport transfers, which was a very good service.

Solcosta is set away from the main Albufeira town, but we like that, there is supermarket a short walk away and local coffee shops/bars and restaurants. It is easy and inexpensive (6 - 8 euros) to get a taxi into the Old Town when you want to.

Our studio apartment was spacious and clean, there are no frills if that is what you are looking for - cleanliness is most important to us and it certainly is clean. We had two balconys which was great for choosing shade or sun. The pool area and gardens are beautiful, and kept to a very high standard.

A special mention to Gomes, he is a very hard worker, ensures the pool area is kept clean, is very friendly without interfering in your break, and cooks the best burgers and toasties.

Just wanted to say, that even though we hadn't been for four years, we immediately felt welcome and comfortable, we will certainly be back next year.

Villa Eber

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Villa Eber for two weeks, July 2010 and found it very clean, spacious and comfortable. The swimming pool was refreshing, however on the small side. Location requires a car to get to the best beaches. Good shopping available at the algarve shopping centre..

No washing machine, which we feel is basic for acomodation these days

good to have wi fi available, cost reasonable at e20 a week.

Very nice balcony with fab views of the mountalins and sea.

Roads locally are in poor coindition. When visiting the camp site for a drink one evening, we were only allowed to stay half and hour!.

Andrew was very helpful and made us very welcome.

We had two fabulous boat trips along the algarve coastline, with bbq's on secluded beaches.

Found the Atlantic sea so cold tho' it spoilt my swimming, which was a shame as lovely and calm seas.

We would reccomend the appartment, as spacious, clean and in good condition. Overall rate Villa Eber as good.

Excellent séjour !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement avec sa terrasse spacieuse au dernier étage. Il est aussi bien équipé pour passer une semaine comme chez soi mais avec le soleil en plus. La piscine est grande et le terrain autour du complexe est arboré et très bien entretenu. L'appartement est bien situé entre Faro et Guia et Albufeira. Voiture indispensable pour visiter et passer de bonne journée aux plages de l'algarve.

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.
