We really enjoyed our stay. The pool was always quite and it was spotless as was the whole complex. The apartments are at the top of various hills. This may put some people off but we enjoy a walk plus it burns of the extra calories that you eat on holiday. The terrace was huge and we really appreciated the sun beds, the table and chairs and the chairs for relaxing on.
We would definitely return to this apartment.
Thank you for your review, I am delighted that you had a great holiday in this beautiful complex. The walks and views are amazing, with the Old Town and the Marina a short walk away, as well as the stunning sea views. Algarve Getaways look forward to your next visit.
Fantastic penthouse,clean, spacious, view are out.
From start to finish the holiday and service, transfer, was excellent. Already booked for 2018. Algarve Getaways keep up the good work.
A belated thank you for your review! So pleased that everything went so well and you had a great holiday and we look forward to seeing you again, this year, in 2017!
Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways
The apartment was lovely, very clean and well maintained. The views were amazing.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the apartment. The views were amazing, especially at night with all the lights. However, the first thing we noticed when we were shown around was the traffic noise from the dual carriageway that runs across the back of the property. We had to keep the metal shutter down at night in the bedroom as it was so noisy at times. We had to sleep with the air conditioning on as it was so hot and couldn't have the door open. Also, sunbathing on the terrace it was quite noisy at certain times in the day. We chose this apartment as it states that it is close to all amenities, but it was quite a walk into the Old Town especially in 30 degree heat. We used taxis on a few occasions, but they are really expensive. We were charged 55 euros one way from the airport so wished we had pre-booked the transfers when making our booking as they only charge 60 euros both ways. My husband is a keen golfer so another reason we chose this apartment as we were told all the golf courses were within easy taxis distance. We were charged 55 euros on top of the golf fees for each taxi fare. We were quite disappointed with the Marina as there really wasn't much to look at and only a few restaurants/bars, so we didn't go back. Having said all this we thought the Old Town was lovely and found some fabulous restaurants. Our favourite being the Three Crowns roof terrace. The food and the views were to die for. Would we return to Albufeira.....sorry no! We had a lovely time, but prefer to be closer to all the amenities and not have to pay extortionate taxi fares. September 2016.
Thank you for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful penthouse apartment, with its stunning views, by day or night. The Algarve is famous for its fabulous weather and year round sun and our apartments are equipped with efficient air conditioning units, to ensure that our guests have a comfortable night's sleep. If you leave the door open at the same time, it will not be as effective. The road next to the apartment is not a main route, so traffic noise can vary but we can offer guests alternative apartments in this complex, if they are sensitive to it.
The walk into the Old Town is 5 - 8 minutes and there is also a bus stop right outside the complex, with a very regular service and busses are, of course, much cheaper than taxis. We repeatedly offered you airport transfers at 30 Euro each way, as they are a much cheaper and efficient service. We could have also provided cheap golf transfers for you too.
Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways
This is a lovely apartment very spacious and large balconies and algarve getaways were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish will defenitly use again.
The most amazing penthouse apartment ever!
We want to give a huge thank you to the team at Algarve Getaways who truly made our one week break away back to our favorite destination Albuferia a memorable one. This apartment is not only absolutely stunning, the views, the space and the amenities are incredible. Please also use the airport transfers which make your holiday stress free from the moment you land until the moment you sadly leave. We will be back for sure!!
Beautiful property. Well maintained. Apartment had everything we needed and the staff were excellent. Julie, especially, went out of her way to make sure everything was good. Property is in a great location, within walking distance to the Old Town. Our favourite Restaurants were Studio 54?? in Old Town and The Palladium in Guia. Would recommend this rental in a heartbeat and would certainly deal through the same company again! From day one of us renting, I had every question answered promptly - right down to how many hangers there were in our unit! A wonderful holiday!!
