Luxury Ground Floor Apartment on the Boavista Golf & Spa Resort - 2-bed Ground Floor Apartment With Large South Facing Garden, Golf and Bay Views, inc Free Spa Membership
About Steve Crawley
My wife and I live in the South of England and we enjoy visiting our property in Boavista as often as possible, often having family and friends join us for part of our stays. We really love the immaculately kept Boavista Resort, the local area, the golf, the incredible range of restaurants and of course the year long lovely weather there! We have not regretted our purchase at Boavista for one single second, and are always looking forward to our next trip back!
Steve Crawley purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Steve Crawley chose Atalaia
This part of the Algarve is still quite unspoilt, and everything is certainly better value for money at this end of the Algarve. From golf prices to eating out, everything is far more reasonably priced, whilst the quality of everything is still present.
What makes this Apartment unique
We absolutely love our property at Boavista - we have our own secure area within the integral garage where we can keep items there to save on luggage each time we travel, the double aspect garden space in our particular apartment is much larger than the average plot and it is south facing so we have sun all day. As a very recent build, the apartment is Boavista's latest design, which we much prefer over the older style apartment layouts at the Resort. Although we have full golf views front and back, we are not in any 'firing line' for stray golf balls, which we wouldn't like. We feel our location, plot, and design is 'just perfect'!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Excellent accommodation on Boavista
An excellent property which is like a home from home. Great owners who made everything so easy. So comfortable and everything extremely high quality. Would definitely recommend.
I would highly recommend Steve & Judy's apartment, its clean, tidy, and well furnished. Steve provided all the details needed for checking in and checking out and if you need any assistance during your stay, he will reply to any queries you might have and nothing is to much trouble. Also the refreshments on arrival was a thoughtful gesture after a long day of travelling. The resort is well looked after nothing is out of place and security on duty which makes you feel extra safe. The pool was lovely and very quiet I guess that could be the time of year. We hired a car to get around and went to many places like, Luz, Lagos shops, restaurants, street entertainment, and ZooMarine. We found new beaches during this stay, they are all beautiful, I would recommend during your stay they are; Meia Praia Beach, Praia Dona Ana, Praia da Batata, my favourite was Praia Dona Ana it has a long wooden staircase to enter, the views from the top are breath taking. My partner's favourite was Praia Da Batata, its 5 little beaches in a row with little coves so they appear to be hidden. Another stunning beach is Praia Da Luz Beach which we have been to lots of times.
I would most definitely book again, and very we are all very sad to be home.
Thank you Steve & Judy.
Jackie R. BoaVista is a secret we'd rather keep to ourselves but......
We had a wonderful, relaxing fortnight in this fabulous apartment! It is really well equipped and beautifully furnished. The garden and patio enjoy the sun all day and the garden furniture has just been replaced and updated.
We have been going to BoaVista for 10 years now, staying in different apartments and we have never been disappointed.
Car hire is essential to see around the surrounding area at your leisure which is so beautiful, it is really worthwhile doing.
We ate out in Lagos town and at the marina which has some lovely restaurants. Portofino's is our favourite.
There is also a well stocked supermarket 5 minutes drive away for those evenings when you feel like eating in.
The staff at the clubhouse are lovely and the food is of a high standard.
Thank you Steve & Judy. We would love to return again soon.
Dear Jackie & John,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our property, and re-visiting some of the great restaurants around. We will have to exchange notes on our favourites!
We look forward to welcoming you and your family back for another visit in the near future.
Thanks and regards,
Steve & Judy.
BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT AND GARDEN
We stayed for 1 week and we did not want to leave. Clean, modern and spacious. Beautiful garden area and lovely views from balconies.
A Stunning Apartment in Sunny Portugal 🇵🇹☀️
I am writing to thank you for a thoroughly relaxing holiday experienced in your apartment at The Boavista Golf & Spa Resort, Portugal.
The modern 2 bedroom apartment was beautifully furnished, generous in size and benefited from having a large private garden which attracted the sun all day. We certainly loved dining alfresco making good use of the table & chairs along with the sun loungers.
On regular trips to the Spa we were greeted by friendly staff before swimming in the heated pool & lounging in the jacuzzi.
The apartment was well situated for visiting Lagos Town, Marina & the Beaches with their hidden coves.
We visited many of the fine restaurants located in and around Lagos where we particularly enjoyed sampling fresh locally caught fish paired with fine wines as recommended by friendly and knowledgable owners and waiters.
Verdict : I have already booked and confirmed my next visit to this apartment.
Thank you for your review and kind comments. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our property and visiting the local beaches and restaurants. It is always great to escape some of the British winter and have some Portuguese sun at that time of year!
We look forward to welcoming you for your next visit.
Steve & Judy.
Beautiful apartment, close to Lagos
We had a lovely fortnight at Boavista staying in this apartment. The apartment has everything you need and looks as good as the pictures. We used it as a base so we're out and about most days in the car but it was good to return and use the community pool which was huge.
Thank you Steve for some great recommendations for restaurants, Lagos has lots of them but be wary of the tourist traps where it's hit and miss.
We really couldn't ask for more and it is the best apartment we have ever stayed in. The only feedback to improve is it would have been great if the outdoor patio was a little larger, we didn't use too much as difficult to get us all round table with a much needed umbrella....also we would have loved wifi...no doubt my phone bill will be sky high 😳😬
Overall fab holiday, great location to explore and we will definitely be back to Portugal!
Hi Debbie, Thank you for your 5* review - we are so glad you found our property up to expectations and you all enjoyed your stay in the Algarve. We look forward to welcoming you back some time in the future.
Steve & Judy.
P.S. We now have a new Patio Table & Chairs which seat 4 people perfectly on the Patio - see the new pictures. 🙂
There are many beautiful beaches to choose from nearby in either direction to the Boavista resort. There is the very long (4km) sandy beach in Lagos (Meia Praia), and many smaller beautiful coves in Lagos – Praia de Dona and the famous Ponta da Piedade with its stunning caves and rock formations stretching into the sea. There are many more sandy beaches nearby at Porto de Mos, Praia de Luz and Burgau. There is also the beach voted "The best beach in Europe" by the Sunday Times in 2017 - Praia da Amoreira. This is just 30 minutes away on the Western Algarve coast.
The Resort is best served from Faro International Airport, which is 45-60mins away from the Resort via the A22 Motorway. Car hire is recommended, although both Train and Taxi services are available from the Airport to Lagos. Local Taxis from the Boavista Resort to local restaurants/beaches etc are relatively inexpensive.
Lagos is a large Town, close by to the Resort (5 mins by car) with many shops, restaurants etc. The closest supermarket to the Resort is the Intermarche, just a few minutes from the accommodation. Lagos is a thriving Market, and now Tourist Town, with over 100 restaurants, a Marina, and a long history dating back to Roman Times with much evidence also of the Portuguese explorations. It also has a Train station, with regular trains running along the width of the Algarve to Faro.
