Perfect for quiet family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here at the start of July with three children aged 6,4 and almost 2. The hotel itself was very quiet, especially the first week of our stay, which suited us perfectly.

The apartment is perfect for a family holiday - it has the all important air conditioning in the bedrooms. We all slept great and found the beds comfortable. A cot was provided for the youngest. As I said the hotel is quiet so there was never any issues with neighbours making noise at bedtime.

There is wi fi and a dvd player to keep everyone entertained when we needed a break from the sun. My kids enjoyed the gardens in the complex to play ball games outside as well.

The apartment is very close to the main pool and kiddy pool beside the restaurant and hotel reception. This was perfect and we didn't use any of the other pools. While they were cold in the early morning we learned to wait until about 11 to go to the pool when they had warmed up. We rarely had trouble getting sun loungers. We often had lunch at the restaurant by the pool or just popped back to the apartment. The main restaurant was reasonably priced for the snack menu but the dinner menu was expensive. We usually ate out in the evening at one of the local restaurants. We cooked in the apartment a couple of times and had plenty of appliances there to manage.

The apartment was cleaned after one week with all sheets changed and this was welcome. We had plenty of towels and bed linen to keep us going.

Tea and condiments were available on arrival in the apartment probably left by other guests, as were the buckets and spades etc for the kids.

I would stay at this apartment and hotel again as the peace and grounds suited us. However, I would probably not rush back to the Albufeira area itself.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely apartment in a very well maintained development. It was a real home away from home with lots to keep a 4 year old busy!

All the comforts of home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here in mid oct with my husband and 10 month old baby. The apartment is well stocked with all the necessary equipment in the kitchen, living room, bedroom. Cot and high chair there made life easier for the baby. The resort has many pools, but all probably a bit cold for october, but one outdoor heated pool made it livable. The apartment gives free wifi which was great as the resort would normally charge for this. There is a gym and indoor pool just around the corner which has a small additional charge to use. The on site supermarket is well stocked and not too overpriced with particularly good coffe for very cheap. The apartment itself has a few little signs of wear, but overall would recommend it fully.

Restaurants are under 10 mins walk away, as is the main supermarket for the area.

Fantastic clean villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, lovely homely villa, clean with everything we needed. Evenings were cool but there were plenty of blankets, enough utensils and crockery for our family of four and all the things you need - iron, ironing board, airer, hairdryer etc. There was even toys, buckets, spades, water floats, it really was a home from home.

There was a dvd and tv with plenty of channels, nice little patio area, shaded most of the day which was good for us due to having little ones - a nice retreat when they've been out in the sun most of the day.

In terms of location, the complex itself is beautiful, well manicured gardens, various pools to choose from with children's pools too. One drawback is that even the heated pool did not feel heated, they were all on the cool side and took some courage to get in!

This villa is ideally located between the pools, 3-4 mins from the local supermarket, next to the tennis courts, and it was still lovely and quiet. We thought the location was perfect (40mins from Faro airport).

The children's club was good, shame it wasn't open more (2hrs, 3 times per week).

There was a free shuttle to Albufeira at certain times which we used, but taxis were just €6-7 if the times don't suit so really quite cheap.

We didn't eat in the veranda as it didn't start serving until 7.30pm which was too late for toddlers so we would use the shuttle to get to Albufeira or cook in the villa.

The golf course (according to my husband) was good, beautiful surroundings, well maintained, no problems getting on the course, but the cost should be considered in the price of the holiday, make sure you ask for the discount for residents (we missed out on this for the first few days as we weren't aware and paid quite a lot!)

All in all, fantastic holiday and wonderful villa - first time in a while where we'd consider going back to the same place it was that nice.

Very nice family stay

  • 4 of 5

Can only recommend this resort, very family friendly. Nice apartment, good beds. Nice and calm area, close to beach. Restaurant a little pricy, but other nice places to eat close by. Pool bar at smaller pool area is nice and offer plenty of different snacks and food. If we would go back to this area, we would probably stay here again 😀
