Lovely, spacious apartment in an unspoilt and charming resort
We have just returned from a wonderful week in Sao Martinho. This was our first visit to Portugal and we found there was lots today in this region, especially if you like culture and history which we do. We loved Obidos best of all, a mediaeval and charming town. We also visited Alcobaca monastery, the Convento de Cristo at Tomar and the fantastic caves at Mira de Aire with a water-park next-door - highly recommended!
The apartment is about 10 minutes walk from the sea front and is spacious and well equipped with a lovely long terrace , in a well maintained complex with heated outdoor pool that we had to ourselves a lot of the time.
Most of the holiday was pretty well perfect apart from the beds which we found to be rather low (Japanese style?) and somewhat uncomfortable. Also the air-con in the twin room didn't seem to work, however the temperature was a comfortable heat of around 25 degrees all week so it didn't matter too much.
We will recommend Sao Marthinho to our friends - we loved it here as it is not commercialised and is quite typically Portuguese.
All in all, a great stay.
Thank you for your review. We will take on board everything you said and rectify them going forward.
Was as described
Good location. Well furnished and comfortable. A few minor maintenance issues but not sufficient to cause a problem. Would book again if we return to the area
Thanks for your review. We will take on board your remarks. Hope we see you again.
Good apartment, some things to be fixed
Well, the apartment was really nice and we enjoy the 10 days holidays.
However was some things not working which was told to us when the arrival:
-Private garage (no remote key)
-Shower tower not working properly (was hard to get good water temperature)
-Toilet Fan not working.
-Air conditioning not working (Manager provide heaters to keep the house warm)
-Shared pool was uncovered and quite dirty and not working (January is not warm so not afect us, we didn´t used)
In the final review was a nice apartment, need some maintenance above described but didn´t afect us, so this was a good spot and hope come back with all the issues fixed! :)
Thanks for your observations.
Air conditioning went before you arrived. Our property manager wasn't able to get it fixed in time for your stay so she provided heaters.
The key for the garage needs to be re-programmed and we have the condominium manager looking after this.
Because people like their showers at different temperatures it does take some fiddling with to get it right.
I will get the toilet fan fixed.
Pool is closed from September to May so should have been covered. I will point this out to the condominium manager.
I'm glad these things didn't affect your stay and I will see to them immediately.
The beach at San Martinho is a 5 minute walk from the apartment. The water is very calm due to the waves breaking further out as they enter the ‘Horseshoe’ shaped bay. This makes it ideal for children to play in. In the summer shade tents are available on the beach. There is also a lifeguard on the beach. A children’s playground is located at the end of the promenade and there are numerous cafes and restaurants dotted along the length of the promenade.
