    "Fabulous apartment with sea views"

    We arrived at this apartment in torrential rain and the dark and once we eventually got into the apartment, we were not disappointed at all!!. What a lovely surprise, just as it is advertised on the website, anything you could possibly need whilst on holiday was provided in the apartment, equipped kitchen, fantastic shower, and most importantly a comfy kingsize bed with gorgeous linen. The next morning when we opened the curtains, what a view we had of the harbour and ocean, fabulous, couldn't wait to get out and about to explore this island. You do need a car if you are staying at The Docks, and if I can give one piece of advice, please, please do not use Bravacars, just Google Bravacars Madeira and you will get all information needed to make a decision on not to use that company, pay the extra and go for a company based at the airport!. We met Lourdes, caretaker, who kindly tried to sort out the issues we had with Bravacars who was just a gem, anything you need or need to know, just ask her or Louise. There is ample information provided in the apartment by Louise to make décisions on what to do in and around the area of Paul do Mar, please do read her folder, extremely useful indeed. Wi-Fi for us was a must which is provided. We were here for 10 days, weather was mixed but on the whole reasonable; If you are looking for a quiet Holiday and want to be away from the busyness of Funchal, then I can recommend here, a lovely traditional fishing village and we explored most of the isaland from here with a couple od days in Funchal and also did the walk from the back of the apartment up the mountain to Prazeres, should have taken an hour and a half aparently, took me 3 hours!!, it is tough, but rewarded with fabulous views and scenery, enjoyed snack and drink at the hotel when we eventually arrived, but had to get a taxi back which will cost you 15 euros, was worth every euro!!, Thanks Louise for all advice, info and being able to exoperience being in that part of Madeira, you have a fabulous apartment and for making our trip a stress free one with your valuable input, regards to Lourdes too, she is a gem!, hopefully we may be back one day and would certainly recommend yourself and these apartments in Paul do Mar. Linda & Alan

    Response to review:
    Dear Linda & Alan Thank you so much for your very detailed review, this is so helpful for other guests to understand more about the area and the accommodation. We are so glad you enjoyed The Docks and our service, i am impressed that you did the walk up to Prazer´s, it took me a long time too but as you say it is well worth it for the view! More people like yourselves are starting to discover these parts of the Island and this particular area of the south west coast is usually always guaranteed good weather, it´s also easy to explore the rest of the Island from here and after a long day sightseeing or walking it´s really great to be in a place that´s away from all the hustle & bustle as you say! If you return to Madeira please come stay at Number 15, it´s property number 805065 on this site, it would be great to welcome you back! once again thank you so much, Best Regards Louise, oh and yes we are very lucky to have our caretaker Lourdes, she is most certainly is a Gem!

    "Superb Apartment and Views"

    My wife and I have just come back from 12 nights in apartment number 3 on the docks. The apartment is absolutely superb and the views of the docks and sea are stunning. Paul do Mar is a little out the way and a car is needed, but a perfect place for relaxing or a great place to come back to at the end of the day. Most mornings and evenings when we ate at the apartment, we sat at the table on the terrace and enjoyed the sounds of the sea, the sunset and the view of docks. The two coffee bars 50 meters up the road were a great place to drink and we did have a few snacks there which were all very reasonably priced. Louise was super-helpful and helped make our stay a lovely holiday. Overall a great holiday and a perfect place to relax and use as a base to explore. Ian Partridge

    "Pleasant and quiet"

    This is a very pleasant appartment with a lovely view of the harbour. Beds and bedrooms are large and comfortable, kitchen is fully equipped, all multimedia available incl. Wifi. This is an excellent spot for people who like a quiet place in a laid-back village. All the basic needs are just a few meters away, but a car is very handy for sightseeing and larger shopping needs.

    "Super location"

    Well cleaned and prepared, well greeted by Louise, and very nice everything - furniture, layout, very spacious, awesome view - it feels a bit like staying on/in a relaxed tourist attraction with the tiny fishing harbour, wave surfing, waterfall and levada right behind or in front. A minor snafu was the wifi didn't work, when I was there. I am told, it works now.

    Response to review:
    Thanks so much for your review, much appreciated! Once again apologies for the Wi-fi not working, the company we use changed their provider & failed to inform us that they have no signal in that area. I am happy to say we have now changed to Vodafone here and the service is excellent, sorry it was not working for you! Best Regards & thank you again, Louise.
