“Superb apartment, the best!”

My wife and I stayed here in Sept for a week before moving on to another apartment in Vilamoura, and as a comparison, Maeve's apartment is different class. The other reviews on this site have praised the facilities,security and locality of this apartment and we agree wholeheartedly with everything said. We felt we got lucky with this place and believe anyone renting the apartment will not be disappointed with it.
I must also mention, for people with mobility problems, there is a gentle 150yard sloping path leading to the beach which is not so gentle for a 72 year old with dodgy knees returning from the beach.

“Apartment had everything needed, great location”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed at this Apartment complex for 10days. Had a hire car from airport, so was greeted by rep at main (secure gate). Both drive through and walk through gates locked for extra peace of mind. Ample parking outside and underground (via another locked gate). Both drive though gates opened with a key fob. First impression of complex was 'clean'. Lots of doors for stairs access to upper floors or to car park below. Apartment is accessed by a few steps or a lift if required. Apartment was very clean and all appliances and utensils supplied (great fridge freezer to keep the drinks cold and ice creams frozen). Beds comfortable, and plenty of hangers, draw space etc for all the clothes. View from patio of the pool area (with plenty of sun beds and umbrella's). Apartment also has 2 sun loungers if required, but we didn't need to use them.

The location of this apartment is great for beach (2mins walk), strip for bars/restaurant (5mins walks), great local bar, zoo bar, 2mins walk and highly recommended, friendly and great for kids, Breakfast a must here. Can walk to the old town from the apartment, but we didn't realise how close it was until the last day !! (probably about 15mins walk)

Think the satellite service has been changed in Portugal, so couldn't get any English channels, but think this was the case for everyone, not just this complex.

wifi was a god send, especially with teenage kids !

All in all, great apartment, great location and would recommend, and will certainly try and go back next year.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

Just back from a lovely stay here. The owner was great to deal with and any questions I had around my stay were addressed on a timely basis.

The apartment itself is about 5 minutes walk from the stunning beach. A short taxi ride takes you into the old town.

The apartment is within walking distance from the strip but I tended to head to the old town.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and decor was bright and modern. I could not fault this apartment in any way.....I am looking forward to a return visit....

“Lovely apartment in a fantastic setting”
Reviewed 2 December 2011 for a stay in August 2011

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for two weeks in August. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable. All home comforts available and effective aircon, which is a must for August! The pool was lovely but we were at the beach most days as it was a short walk down the hill - about 5 minutes, to a lovely beach and close to an excellent restaurant where we had fresh sardines and half a bottle of wine every day for lunch.
There was also a great bar outside for cocktails and meals which was very reasonable.
Close to the old town for evenings - a 20 minute walk along the beach and even less to the strip which was about 15 minutes walk.
We enjoyed it so much we have booked again this summer!

“Bliss by the Beach!”
Reviewed 24 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

My husband, myself and our 4 year old daughter have just returned from this rental, and all I can say is " Perfect Location"! Less than 2mins from the beach and beautiful views of the ocean from the ground floor balcony. The building is very quiet this time of year but was soon filling up with smiling faces for the Summer months, as we were leaving. Becuase of the amazing location, we spent much of our time at the wonderful beach, only 2 mins from the apartment. The Strip is 8 mins walk fro the apartment complex which is packed with restaurants and busy nightlife, though this does not encroach with the peacful environment of the complex. The Old town is a little more of a distance which can easily be reached in 10 mins by the small road driven train from the main strip, costing very little.
The apartment itself is super clean, modern and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is my dream kitchen with all the Miele appliances! The views are spectacular! Perfect for a peaceful and restful vacation. I would most certainly return to this property.
