property found by us on arrival to be dirty, tired, poorly maintained, pool not cleaned.

  • 2 of 5

Apartment was described as(fabulous high class )

Very disappointed when we seen condition of apartment! We expressed this to Mars algarve rep & asked that his Manager come out next day .

Sofa filthy & stained

Fly nets broken & hanging off

Patio not cleaned

BBQ filthy & unusable

Electric shutter intermittent fault

Microwave ooo

Toilet seat broken

Tiles main bathroom cracked

Cutlery sparse(1teaspoon)

Pool dirty

Was obvious to us apartment had not been prepared for new arrivals.

No one came out next day, called Simon Mars that afternoon & told him our concerns with flat.

On third day someone came out & put throws over dirty sofas,cleaner hoovered & washed patio.also some repairs were done & we were told pool would be cleaned.

Friday, they started cleaning pool, this went on till the following Tuesday which meant we had no use of pool for 1 week of our holiday.

Phoned Mars Algarve again told them not happy as we were only thr for 10 days.

Tuesday afternoon pool was made available for use, which gave us 3 days to use it.

Tuesday afternoon asked for complaints book, was assured by Mars rep would bring book out next morning.

No one came out with book Wednesday & when we phoned Thursday were told would have to go into office in Olhao if we wanted to put in complaint.

As this was last day of our precious holiday we had had enough & decided to get use of pool.

E mailed Simon at Mars Algarve & explained we were not happy with being fobbed off about complaints book & we felt the apartment was not up to advertised standard.

Simon E mailed us & accused us of using leverage to receive compensation which he did not intend to offer.

At no time was compensation mentioned by us, all we wanted was what we paid for

A supposedly (fabulous high class apartment with a usable pool) unfortunately we did not get this,.!

Hope this explains our situation

Apartment Mar Azul is set in a wonderful location within the Lux Residence at Luz de Tavira which is small village just outside the beautiful old Roman City of Tavira. Also nearby is Santa Luzia, a lovely fishing village set on the banks of the Ria Formosa. The Village has some wonderful restaurants catering for all types of palate and some super cafes, just perfect for watching the world go by. Santa Luzia has a fish market and you will find well stocked supermarkets, along with a chemist, banks and gift shops. From here you can catch a ferry across to the beach and just outside Santa Luzia there is either a path across the marshes or a small tourist train to take you to Barril beach. Barril has plenty to do including beach games, shops, cafes and restaurants making it a great day out.

Head into Tavira and take time to enjoy the many churches (nice and cool in summer!) Also take in the sights of the Town by paying a visit to the Old castle now beautiful gardens. Take a moment to pop into the old water tower and see a 360 degree view of the City. Then relax by the water front in one of the many places to sit and enjoy a leisurely lunch or drink. Tavira has plenty to offer with shops and places to visit, including a tourist train and a shopping centre on the outskirts. This is also where you can catch the ferry or a water taxi to Tavira Island. A wonderful beach with plenty of facilities and activities.

Take the train or hire a car and visit some of the wonderful Towns and Villages the Algarve has to offer. Head down to the Spanish border via Villa Real and either cross the bridge or catch the ferry to Ayamonte for a Spanish experience. Or head towards Faro, the capital City of the Algarve and enjoy browsing the shops in the cobbled streets or visit the Marina and gardens then take a stroll into the Old City not forgetting the Chapel of Bones!

Further up the coast is plenty of family attractions, including 3 different water parks, Zoo Marine, Lagos Zoo, Feisa sand sculptures, boat trips and much more.

The East Algarve has some wonderful undiscovered golf courses too, offering exceptionally high standard golf at a fraction of the cost of some of the courses in the West Algarve. Please make sure you ask for more details when enquiring about Apartment Mar Azul.
