Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways
Fantastic Apartment in a secure and quiet complex yet close to supermarkets, excellent restaurants and an easy walk to both the strip and the old town. Spotlessly clean, fabulous sun terrace, lovely big pool. Customer service was superb, best we have ever had. Would recommend the excellent transfer service. Thanks for a great holiday.
Great stay in this apartment. Lovely apartment, beautifully decorated and had everything our family needed. Very secure complex so no worries about our 7 year old girl who made lots of friends around the pool. We travelled with my in-laws who stayed in another apartment in the next block. Their apartment was equally as good. We would have liked to have been located nearer the beach but it wasn't a major issue as our little girl preferred the pool in any case.
One criticism of the complex would be that some apartment owners and their families seem to think they own the entire complex but if these families were not in the pool area the atmosphere was so different. A few issues with noise at night (related to the same families) but wasn't an ongoing problem, just the odd night. All in all though, a great holiday in a lovely complex and the issues mentioned would certainly not hinder us returning.
We visited Portugal again this year and as usual stayed at the Solario De Sao Jose complex. This apatment complex is second to none. The apartments are excellent, kitted out with all mod cons. It is a home from home. I do not feel that we could really stay anywhere else. They are super clean and comfortable. The pool area is also excellent with allocated sun loungers which is definately a plus, no rushing out in the early hours to book a lounger. Will definitely be going back.
We had a lovely stay in the these apartments. We arrived and were met by a lovely gentleman who showed us around the apartment. We had a couple of small issues and they were sorted immediately, so were very impressed with Algarve Getaways. The apartment has everything you need for a relaxing week away. The only problem for us was the sofa bed was quite uncomfortable for our son. Next time I would pay a little extra and stay in the two bed apartment. Though the two bed apartment had a wonderful enclosed terrace with sunbeds, perfect for sunbathing.
Everything is in walking distance but it is back up a bit of a hill, this was fine for us and we had no problem with it, some might though.
Would recommend these apartments, something for everyone, pool, games room, gym and the sun. PERFECT!!
Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and facilities at Solario de Sao Jose. A member of the Algarve Getaways team will always meet and greet our guests on arrival and be available, should you need them throughout your stay. I think that you meant that the one-bedroom apartment, SOL-I. had the wonderful enclosed terrace with sunbeds. It is very special. I am sorry that your son found the sofa bed uncomfortable. It is a very good quality sofa bed, with a proper sprung mattress and most guests find it very comfortable. We do however, appreciate that guests have different comfort levels and so, have mattress toppers available, at no extra charge, if our guests need them. If you do, please ask. We have a great selection of luxury one and two bedroom apartments for you to choose from for your next visit and we will be very happy to make recommendations for your future stay in the Algarve. Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways

We've always been looked after by Algarve getaways and they are thoughtful to your needs regardless of how much you want to see or do they will always be on hand to advise. It's certainly a place we will always return to.
Thank you for your review and your excellent endorsement. The Algarve Getaways Team works hard to ensure that our guests have the very best holiday experience and for you to come back 5 years in a row, we are happy to know that we are getting it right.
