Home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family holiday together and with young children (3years and 8 month old) we were concerned how they would settle, however we should never had worried because this apartment was just like home. The apartment was very clean, spacious and literally had everything we needed. We had regular email contact with Irene from Algarve Getaways prior to the holiday who kept us fully informed of all we needed to know. We had rented a pram, high chair and cot for the baby which were all very clean. The pram did break whilst we were using it however after a quick call to Algarve Getaways, we had a replacement pram in literally 20minutes. The pool area is very well kept and pool clean. The water was pretty cold however it wasn't a bad thing to cool down in the sun and the children didn't seem to mind. Our extended family also stayed within the same complex at Corcovada but different apartments and they too were impressed with their surroundings. The Dubliner bar at the top of the complex is great for a quick bite to eat and make delicious cooked breakfasts, however the apartment itself had everything needed for self catering. It was the first holiday I didn't have all the clothes to wash on our return home as I got all the clothes washed and dried before we left for home.

We have already booked our holiday for next year for a different country but can't wait to book for the following year for Corcovada, it was one of the best places I have ever stayed in and will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review and most wonderful comments. Travelling with such young children can be very stressful and it is so good to know that you were able to have a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable holiday, in a home-from-home environment. We aim to provide this for all our guests, no matter what their age, and I am so pleased that we succeeded, even for some of our very youngest guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. With all good wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways
