David purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why David chose Alcantarilha
Having enjoyed holiday's on the Algarve for many years we fell in love with it's unique charm. With over 300 days of sunshine and friendly locals it is a fabulous location for any holiday. Quinta Palmeiras is peaceful and private yet ideally situated for the beaches, supermarkets, dining out, and all the things our guests like to do. We love it, and our guests love it too - well they keep coming back!!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our little bit of paradise is centrally located only 10 minutes drive to the historic town and castle of Silves. Here there are first class restaurants, pavement cafes and bars, and excellent shopping facilities with a wonderful market selling organic fresh fruit, vegetables, meat & fish, which all goes to make the town a joy to explore. The beach of Armacao de Pera is only 15 minutes away, offering a good choice of bars and fish restaurants set on miles of golden sand, water sports, and sun beds. Close-by there are many stunning secluded 'secret' coves, ideal for chilling out with a good book, or just simply soaking up the sun for that perfect tan. The young at heart are less than 10 min drive from a fabulous water park, the fearless can tackle scary rides, gentler ones for the toddlers

very poor would not go back
at a glance the property looks good value for money but it was not very clean we couldnt use the kettle because it had needed a good de scaling all the kettles were the same full of lime scale the kitchen cupboards where damp and we did not get the room we booked theydid give us a smaller room but we could not use it as the smell of the sewers was so strong and the smell was made worse by the heat lots of things need repaired showers not working etc if your looking a cheap place to stay there is better out there
Where to start??
The original booking was for 8 people, (5 adult and 3 children) 9 people arrived, 2 babies, 2 adults and 5 teenagers.
The original booking was for 6 bedrooms. As there were 9 in the party we offered them an extra 2 bed spaces at no additional charge!
The following day an additional adult arrived without any notice or request, again no additional charge was made!
They obviously were less than truthful and very sneaky in their approach to all aspects of their booking.
The whole party disappeared for 3 days and 2 nights in the ten days that they were with us, no communication, no indication where they were or if they were coming back! As there were the disastrous fires in Portugal at the time we were quite concerned.
When they did finally arrive back, late in the evening, without any explanation, there only request was for ant powder, as they had left food out in 32 degrees C in the Algarve. We do advise guests about this issue in their welcome pack.
They had left washing drying all over the property, around the pool, on walls etc. As we had other guests staying we collected all of the washing up and placed it in a wash basket for their return.
The accommodation was disgusting, dirty and a real mess. dirty nappies, uneaten food and sticky mess was abundant, as were the ants as one can imagine! When they left, late as they had an evening flight, our cottage 1 was flooded, they had broken a toilet cistern, not had the decency to report it to us, which flooded the bathroom, kitchen and lounge. A new cistern and new kickboards were required to the kitchen after a massive mop up and clean.( At our cost)
Our other guests will support all of our comments and we certainly would not accept these clients again ever!
We have never had a negative report or review of our provision. We can guarantee our cleanliness and attention to detail is utmost in our minds at all times, We refute all of the comments made by this client. We find the comments made by these clients to be false, unreliable and quite frankly outrageous!
Special interest holidays: Most of our guests self-cater, hire a car, and come to totally chill with a good book, bottle of wine, and to top up their tans by the pool or down on the beach. Early in the year the area is very popular with golfers and we can organise a complete package which includes: mini-bus airport transfer, transport to the various courses, and breakfast and fine evening meals. Also very popular are our out of season ‘retreats’ which includes colour therapy and healing and relaxation techniques, and we also host an annual painter’s party for artists of all abilities. In each case the 5 day course is organised and run by a friend who is a very competent tutor Coast/Beach: The Algarve has wonderful beaches, the nearest is Amacao de Pera, about 10 minute drive.
