Would have been perfection except for the beds!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment and the space we had. The kitchen only lacked a cafeteria as it was difficult finding the right coffee products for the filter machine and pod machine, but that's a minor detail. You need a car really, although the taxi service was fantastic costing between €11 and €16 one way to the places we visited. The grounds and swimming pool were amazing. The walk to the beach took 5 mins down a dusty road, so sensible footwear needed. The bar/restaurant on the beach was very nice but there is not very much else within walking distance. The big issue for us was the beds. They were too hard for either of us to sleep on. We would book again now if not for that. Mattress toppers or new mattresses would make this apartment 5* luxury, a good nights sleep is important. JES were fantastic! Kayleigh organised everything from taxis to shopping when we arrived. I would deal with this company again. Quinta shopping, Casa de Quinta and Vale de lobo are all great places within easy reach of the apartment and well worth a visit.
