Beautiful , spacious and well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a week in August, we regret we didn't stay for longer. The apartment was itself very spacious with modern furnishings and very clean, complete with everything you need in a kitchen including a dishwasher and washing machine . As for the balcony, well what can I say it was massive with two sets of tables and chairs and rattan furniture, which meant you could sit on all parts to follow the sun. The lounge was tastefully decorated although it was a shame we didn't use it much as we spent most of the time on the balcony !! Algarve getaways are a brilliant company to book through, they are very helpful with great communication, we booked transfers through them which was very efficient with friendly drivers. As our arrival was at night we were shown to our apartment by the driver and the next morning A member of staff from algarve getaways came the next morning to check everything was ok etc, later that day she phoned me to say I had left my jacket on the transfer and she kindly dropped it off for me at the apartment (thanks again !)

The location was not too near to the strip and not too far about a five minute walk ... There are some lovely restaurants around the complex especially on the road which runs adjacent to the strip ... On site there is the New Dubliner pub which do great food, entertainment every night and some afternoons, it also had a pool, crazy golf and children's play area so great for children. The old town is about 20minute walk away or a taxi is less than 6 euros and are easy to pick up. The beach is about 15 minutes away but an uphill walk coming home . This is our third stay in albuferia and our best yet , perfect location, excellent service from algarve getaways and beautiful apartment... We will definately book to come back again .

Absolutly superb. A lovely apartment that lacked

  • 5 of 5

We were positively surprised from the very start of our holiday.From start to finish Algarve Getaways looked aftwr us and made sure we lacked nothing.. The Airport pickup went without a hitch..We were escorted all the way to our apartment which in itself was a lovely experience - beautiful apartment. The wrap around terrace was lovely..THE luxurious feeling of getting up in the mornig and steping out, coffee in hand and just taking in the warmth, the view, the portuguese atmosphere - just loved it.. T o top it all off the hospitality shown us from Algarve Getaways was second to none. We have already booked for next year and considering taking an extra break in the autum. Thank you all for making us feel spesial

Booked our holiday through Algarve Getaways and stayed at Parque da Corcovada in a very spacious penthouse. Stayed here with 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Very well equiped and clean.

Beautiful Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 19 year old son for 11 nights. Before we left for our holiday we emailed the owner Ted on numerous occasions with various questions and we always received a prompt and helpful reply.

On arrival at the resort we were met by a very friendly lady who showed us around and told us if we had any queries or problems, of which we had none, to contact her.

After walking into the lovely large hall with beautiful decor and lovely wooden floors we were shown around the rest of the apartment which didn't disappoint.

There was lots of storage space in each bedroom with plenty of hangers, aswell as a large fitted cupboard in the hall.

The kitchen had everything you could need and on 3 occasions we ate in on the very large balcony which overlooked the lovely pool and well tended gardens.

The apartment was swept and mopped at the same time as the bedding and towles were changed, everything was very clean.

We could walk to the strip in 5 mins which suited our son and from there get a taxi into the beautiful old town with lots of fantastic restaurants for 5 euros.

There is so much to do you could never get bored.

The only thing we could criticise, and it is a very small criticism, would be the cushions on the outdoor seating area.They had seen better days and as the interior was of such a high standard were unexpected.

We would highly recommend this apartment to everybody and hopefully at some time in the future would love to return
