Visited for 5 nights with my wife on 27/10/16. Nice apartment with everything you need. 25 degrees everyday which was nice. 2 nice south facing balconies. 1 with stunning views over the old town, beach and sea. 5 minute walk to old town square. 10 minutes max to Aldi and Lidl supermarket. Would definitely return and recommend.

5 Strars Algarve vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days in this lovely flat in october 2016, and everything is exactly as mentionned in the listing. A well maintained apartment, very clean. Well equiped kitchen, nice bedroom with a king size bed, and a nice bathroom, all on tile flooring, no carpets. The terrasse is as described, a nice view of the ocean. It is only a 5 minutes walk down to the old Albufeira, or 10 minutes to the beach. Paul was very Professional and even managed to get some one pick us up at the train station. We definately recommend this apartment in Albufeira. Benoit L. Canada

Beautiful location and view of the ocean

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was nice size and clean. It had fabulous views from 2 terraces, lots of light and privacy.

We rented a car and found it easy to find parking near the flat. It was a quick walk to the ocean and beach with a ton of restaurants and shops along the way. We loved exploring other beaches ( San Raphael) and loved our water tour of the grottos and coastline. The only con was that the lighting in the flat was sparse and dull but a few standing lamps and brighter bulbs would take care of that. Over all a wonderful spot for sun and relaxation. Thank you Ann for all your help.

First Class apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had been looking forward to our six night stay in Apartment Panorama, Cerro Mar Gardens and it certainly did not disappoint ! The view of the sea and the old town from the large south facing main terrace was breathtaking and enjoyed full sun all day, perfect for leisurely breakfast and evening chill out after a long day enjoying the local attractions. The large open plan lounge diner was very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need and more. The bedroom was also large and airy and had another lovely terrace overlooking the sea and the escalators down to Fishermans Beach. Loads of wardrobe space with real hangers (don’t you just hate hotel hangers !) The gated complex was very secure and to have secluded parking at the nearest entrance to the apartment was very welcome. The gardens and pools were outstanding……and there is also a nice restaurant. We ate out most days ……if you want a real dining experience book a table at Restaurante Dom Carlos where Peter and Ana will serve you the most memorable 5 courses (you must prebook as it is a small intimate restaurant and we saw numerous couples turned away). Also enjoyed meals at Casa del Mar just above the beach tunnel and Tres Coroas just a few minutes from there but there are hundreds of eateries to be enjoyed. Do make time to take a boat trip around the beaches and caves from the picturesque marina and we loved the hop on hop off open top bus which not only showed us all the highlights of the old town and the strip but also the beautiful countryside further inland. A very big thank you to Paul the owner who was brilliant, keeping us informed throughout and a thanks also to Ann who rescued us from Lidl when we lost our way to the apartment on arrival ….it was only 2 minutes away !!! Will thoroughly recommend Apartment Panorama to friends and family and indeed to anyone wanting a first class apartment in a stunning location. Hope to return again for much longer.

Great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Paul's apartment was the perfect place for my three-week holiday. It's steps away from old-town Albufeira and has two separate and amazing balconies that overlook the ocean. Ann, the caretaker of the place, was very responsive and even picked me up from the train station to give me a ride to the apt.

The apartment is spacious for one person, but looks as though it can accommodate up to four people comfortably if the pull-out couch is put to use. There is a clothes washer in the unit, and everything you'll need for cooking simple meals. The entire space was clean and inviting. The place if far enough from the nightlife that you won't be disturbed, yet still close to many restaurants, bars, clubs, and most importantly the beach.

I would definitely recommend Paul's place.

A lovely week in Panoramic Cerro Mar apt

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for six nights in this lovely apartment. It was really well equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and bathroom. The furniture and beds were very comfortable and it was lovely to have the sunbeds on the front balcony which caught the sun for most of the day. Also brilliant sea and old town views. It was very convenient to the old town, beach and restaurants but the 100 steps were a challenge after a night out! Will definitely be returning as we found the experience really relaxing.
