I am at present trawling your excellent web site for my holiday next year and decided I really must recommend the apartment we stayed in last year. The apartment is in the centre of Carvoeiro, Portugal and really was the most spacious and well equipped place we have stayed. The owners Manuel & Kitty Guerreiro were excellent not only with the meeting and helping us when we arrived in Portugal but also for the weeks beforehand when I e-mailed constantly for info. Highly recommended!!! Angela Row
Superb apartment in a lovely resort. Great setting, very convenient for all the many quality restaurants here. The separate bathrooms make it like two apartments. Thanks Kitty for all your help and advice, really glad I sent that first, tentative e-mail! Don't want to go home- we will be back! Philip & Julie Grundy and Graham & Gill
NOVEMBER 07: Great weather best in 7 years! Top golfing destination. Will be back next year. Thanks Kitty again! Gary
Stayed in this apartment for 1 week. It was lovely, just like it was in the pictures except even nicer. Spacious, cool and large balcony. Kitchen was very well equipped. Everything you needed was there. Met Kitty on the 1st day & she told us all we needed to know. So close to the village & the beach. No need for taxis. Fantastic restaurants about. Kid friendly. No complaints what so ever. Able to get a cot & baby chair for our one year old. Would recommened no problem.
We had a fantastic stay, apartment exceeded our expectations. The balcony caught the sun from midday onwards offering the perfect opportunity for Al fresco dinning. Swimming pools very user friendly and quiet even though it was half term holidays. Plenty of free parking behind apartment and we never had problems getting a space. Owners were the perfect hosts, great communication via email prior to holiday, met us on our first day and came to say farewell at the end of out stay. Location wise, it is perfectly situated in the town and a flat 5 min walk at most to the beach. Carvoeiro is a lovely place for a family holiday, our children love the land train and the boat trip to the caves from the beach.
Lovely apartment ideally situated right in the Centre of Carvoeiro with a lovely pool. Kitty, the owner was very friendly and helpful and we are seriously thinking of returning next year.
We found the listing description fully accurate as supplied by Kitty the owner who was lovely and met up with us early on to clarify any additional guidance with using the kitchen equipment or apartment facilities. Excellent customer service.
Would certainly recomend the apartment for anyone needing up to 4 sleeping because of the 2 well equipped and clean bedroom & bathroom facilities, lounge, well equipped kitchen and the large terrace that gets the sun from the afternoon until sundown.
The apartment is ideally situated just outside the very centre of town, but still within easy walking distance of all the restaurants, bars and shops without noise being a concern.
There are two wonderful beaches again within easy walking distance and we particularly had great fun swimming, snorkelling or rock pooling at Paraiso beach, whilst regular use was also made of the apartment pool which although busy on occasions, eventually freed up enough loungers to utilise.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 night stay and would certainly consider making a return visit, Would highly recomend this apartment.
We stayed this year in May for 10 days, the apartment was exactly as it is described. We were two couples so two bedrooms each having their own bathrooms was a real bonus. It is equipped with everything we needed.It's location is ideal being close enough to the centre but not noisy even with the windows open. the pool has been retiled and was clean and a sun trap with plenty of sunbeds.
Kitty and Manuel were great, ensuring you are comfortable and equipped with the knowledge to get the most out your stay without being intrusive. The communication and information supplied was first class. If you are two couples ask for a second set of keys as you need them to access the pool area as well as the apartment.(kitty is happy to supply)
There is plenty of parking close to the apartment, the large terrace also allows you to sunbathe, eat outside if you wish and indulge in a spot of people watching whilst having a glass or two. Thanks Kitty and Manuel.
We have just enjoyed a great holiday based in this well-located apartment in Carvoeiro. (Holiday from 2-14 June 2010.)
The apartment matched the description on the web-site in terms of facilities and unlike much of the Monte Dourado development was sited pretty much near sea level. That meant that the beach was just a short stroll away and there was a wide choice of restaurants all within easy walking distance.
The balcony gets the sun from about 1.00pm on. We paid the extra for air conditioning but on reflection might have managed without it as the apartment never really got too warm.
The swimming pool in the complex is a reasonable size and well-maintained.
Kitty met us the day after we arrived and gave us some useful info on where to eat etc. We didn't need to contact her again during our stay but I was confident that she was readily contactable had the need arisen.
We had minimal experience of street noise at night.
Our favourite restaurant was Tia Ilda, for location, food and service. El & Ela, O Salmao and Villa Medici were also very good. But avoid O Chef Antonio's unless you put quantity before quality!
A great holiday overall and we will certainly try to book this apartment again if we decide to go back to Carvoeiro.
