Relaxing in a great location and a fab apartment with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week, Ron's attention to detail and thoughtfulness right from the outset set the tone for our family holiday. Ron's suggestion to visit ZooMarine was great, Molly loved it, all the local restaurants were so child friendly and welcoming it made life easy. The resort and the apartment had everything we could ever have needed, there was no reason to move away from the pool unless we wanted to which suited Molly perfectly. Thank you so much for making our stay so relaxed and enjoyable, we loved it and will be back!

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah, Many thanks for your kind comments. I'm glad to hear that you had such a good time and that the apartment and resort both met all your expectations. . Relaxing by the pool is a great way to unwind and the local restaurants are so varied welcoming that there really is no need to go further afield. I'm delighted that you enjoyed Zoomarine, which is a great day out for all the family, and particularly for younger children, who might not be suited to the large water parks. Zoomarine is also very active in the field of conservation and is renowned for its work in rehabilitating sick and injured sea creatures from across the world and for this reason we give it our full support.. Thank you for booking with us. I do hope to see you all again in due course. Ron

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 3) stayed at the apartment for 10 nights in July. Ron, the owner, arranged a pick up from the airport and met us at the complex. He then showed us round the complex and the marina before giving us a tour of the apartment. The apartment was very spacious with great views of the pool area and really well equipped. Ron also left us a welcome pack which we greatly appreciated. The pool area and gardens were very clean and sunbeds plentiful. The marina area is slightly removed from Albufeira old town but easy walking distance (20 mins) - there are several nice restaurants at the marina if you want to eat locally.

Overall we had a really enjoyable holiday and will definitely return in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Christine. Many thanks for your kind review. I'm pleased to hear hat you enjoyed the apartment, and particularly the pool and garden area. It's an ideal spot for relaxing in the sun or under an umbrella, The improvements that were made in the refurbishment last year have been very popular with guests and the resort puts a lot of effort into ensuring that the area is kept clean and is well maintained. I do hope you and your family are able to come back soon. Best regards, Ron

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Ron picked us up from the airport and showed us around the apartment and local area. A welcome pack was supplied. Very helpful after a late flight.

The Property is a good size and very well equipped. Lots of things are supplied, too many to list,but, inflatables, coolbox, dvds, books umbrella to name a few. The apartment is quite at night. No problem getting a good nights sleep.

The marina is 5 minutes away where you'll find bars and restaurants. The traditional Portuguese one is really nice. The old town is about 20 mins walk, with a little bar halfway with fabulous views and a nice pint of SAN Miguel. The week we stayed temperatures hit the 38 so we took the cab €5 e/w. Old town is full of bars& restaurants some with views across the beach.

Great week, Thanks Ron.

Fantastic apartment in a great complex

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start, Ron the owner could not do enough for us. He'd had trouble with his car the day before we arrived , so arranged a taxi to pick us up as he had promised he would .

Once at the apartment Ron showed us everything in and around, including a quick tour of the marina to show us the best bars and restaurants .

We will defiantly be staying at Ron's apartment again in the near future

Owner's Response: Hi Gavin, Thank you for your kind review. We always do our best to make sure our guests' holiday gets off to a good start so helping them settle in is a top priority. On this occasion it was unfortunate that I couldn't pick you up personally, but our local taxi firm is very reliable so we knew you would be in good hands. It was a pleasure to welcome you to the apartment, and I hope to see you and your family again in the future. Best regards, Ron.

Fantastic apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in August 2016, we were blown away by the service received from Ron, communication before the trip, upon collection at the airport (with correct seats for 18 month old and 7 year old - very much appreciated) to the tour of the facilities at the resort. We felt It was the perfect home from home for us and we were so grateful for the kind welcome pack which meant we could get some lunch when we arrived without trecking straight out to a supermarket on the first day.

The facilities at the apartment and the complex were great. The pool was fantastic for all of us, the food at the pool bar and service was great.

We were impressed with the safety feature Ron has installed on the balcony which meant our toddler could come out onto the balcony with us. The air conditioning, washing machine and dishwasher were welcome facilities included in the apartment. We will most definitely be returning again. Thank you Ron!

Owner's Response: Hi Kate, It's good to hear that you have such happy memories of your holiday at the Orada. We aim to ensure that our guests have a relaxing time with us right from the start, and the airport pickup, welcome pack and tour of the resort contribute to that end. The additional security we have installed on the balcony helps to ensure that small children can safely enjoy the balcony the rest of the family. As you will remember, the pools were completely refurbished in 2016 together with new sun loungers and umbrellas, and there are plenty of them available! I will pass on your comments about the snack bar food and service to the staff there. They will be delighted to know that their efforts are appreciated. Best regards to you and the family. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Ron
