Spotless, fantastic apartment, excellent communication

  • 5 of 5

Have to start by saying this place is SPOTLESS! All credit to the cleaning team. It's a superb apartment, great for being on the ground floor right by the pool, beds were very comfortable, kitchen really well fitted out. There's an Intermarche on the dual carriageway that takes about ten minutes to walk to, and the marina and beach are about twenty minutes walk.

The beach is amazing, and the sunbeds well worth paying for! Cannot fault this apartment, just feel it could be slightly improved by a console table by the mirror in the master bedroom to put make up, straighteners on etc, but that's just a tiny thing. Weather was amazing but apartment stayed cool, utility a great addition for getting towels dry.

Communication from the start with Gary and Karen Driscoll was faultless, and Karen arranged transfers for us from the airport.

Had an amazing holiday, would def go back and it's not often we say that as we always like to go somewhere different! By the way, you need to book at restaurants on the marina when it gets busy. An amazing Indian restaurant called something like Najani in the square behind the Irish pub.

A luxury apartment, and complex

  • 5 of 5

Returned today from our holiday, first time to portugal and we stayed at Praia village, we were overwhelmed, at how beautiful this apartment and the surroundings were. The apartment was very spacious, and beautifully decorated, the air conditioning and facility's in the apartment were fantastic. We were located on the ground floor, so access to the pool, and patio was just a step out of the patio doors, fantastic, very clean and the location, was peaceful. Local shops and restaurant a 5 min walk, with bars , and a bakery etc, ideal for your catering holiday, the marina,

/ beach was a short 10 min walk, and well worth it. I was impressed with Karen who was very helpful, and recommended several restaurants, water parks, other activities we may enjoy with our children, which was helpful, and a great day out. The security was very good, on the complex, which was very reassuring Our overall experience from start to finish was fantastic, I highly recommend booking this apartment, Gary the owner on all communication, was very friendly and helpful, and I would like to thank both you and Karen, for making our holiday so enjoyable

Perfect Apartment in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Back from Praia Village and first time to Portugal and experienced a perfect week. The apartment was to a very high standard. Generous sized rooms; we were 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Very well equipped and quality extremely good. Air conditioning worked perfectly, but didn't actually need it that much. The complex was not noisy, but you had the choice of putting the electric shutters down which eliminated any noise and light for any light sleepers. The apartment being on the ground floor with its own terrace and area for sun beds was the best part for us as could just pop in and out as you wished. The poolside was great, very clean and relaxing. We didn't have a car and didn't feel as though we needed one, as we enjoyed short walk to and from the Marina each night, which was a buzzing place and restaurants to suit everyone. Cabs were cheap to the loads of supermarkets around. We went to Pinga Doce, which was a 7 Euro, each way, cab ride (the place was heaving when we went). During week we picked up light provisions from the green and yellow building complex just across the way, which Karen, who is very helpful, will explain its location. You can also have a bite to eat there which was very useful as we arrived at lunchtime, so nipped across for lunch to start the holiday!!!! The owner of Praia apartment was very friendly, helpful and I would recommend highly. Thank you.

Beautiful, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks in this apartment in August (have been meaning to write a review ever since!) and have re booked for next year and can't wait!

This was our 4th stay at Praia Village although our 1st in this apartment and we loved it. It was very clean & well maintained. We have 2 teenagers who had lots of space to chill out and relax inside the apartment and also used the pool loads. Even though we went at the height of the season it always felt chilled out around the pool area. Being a ground floor apartment makes it feel like your own little villa, popping in and out when you want a drink/lunch etc and having our own sun beds right outside is a real bonus.

The marina is beautiful with so many restaurants to choose from, there are still many we haven't tried! The owner was very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed prior to our holiday. We find a car is useful although a necessity, much easier when doing a food shop or just getting to places within the resort and good to have to visit other places but we always walked to the marina in the evening and either walked back or grabbed a cab, either is easy.

Would recommend this apartment to anyone, the photos don't do it justice!
