About The Hay Family

We are a retired couple from the UK who have been coming out to Penina over the past 25 years both by ourselves and with our family. Having stayed in other apartments and the hotel at various points over that time a few years ago the opportunity arose for us to buy the Penthouse at 12B. This decision has not only allowed us to enjoy Penina more often, but also extend that enjoyment to our children and grandchildren. We very much hope that you will get as much enjoyment from visiting Penina as we do.

The Hay Family purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Hay Family chose Portimao region

Since we started coming to Penina in the 1980’s we have always loved the relaxed atmosphere of the Penina estate and the opportunity the area affords, for both a very relaxing holiday, and to do lots and lots of activities. The refuge it provides from the cold and wet British winter is also a great plus and one we have enjoyed time and time again as the rain and cold gets a bit much! The fact that we knew the area so well when the opportunity arose for us to buy the apartment meant it was a very easy decision to take and we are particularly pleased that our grandchildren enjoy coming out to Portugal and revelling in all it has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Put simply you can really feel at home in the Apartment. That you can nip down to the supermarket and stock up on provisions as soon as you arrive means you can relax straight away in the knowledge that the cupboards are full. That so many, and such a variety of, activities and things to do are within easy driving distance also makes it a fantastic place to holiday as whatever your mood on any given day you can choose to do as much or as little as you want. The fact that it’s also in one of the best golfing areas in the world is just an added bonus!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a line to say how much we all enjoyed staying at 12B. Your penthouse is beautiful and very impressive. After being out in the crowds it was nice to have such a wonderful peaceful home to return to and have such space and facilities to enjoy. The location is perfect and the staff at reception were very kind and helpful. All in all we could not have chosen a better place to stay.

Dear Mr and Mrs Hay, We must thank you again for a lovely holiday at your Apartment in Penina. Penina has so many happy family memories for us and we look forward to returning in the future.

– Malcolm and Diane.

Dear Mr & Mrs Hay,

After a week in your apartment in Penina, we would certainly thank you for a great experience. The apartment suited our needs perfectly and our children loved playing in the spacious living room and the large balcony as well by the pool area. Once again thank you - we look forward to coming back to Penina in the near future.

Great apartment in a quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous apartment was much more than expected. It was so clean, very spacious and the decor made it feel luxurious. The Balcony was was big with views over the apartment gardens as well as some of the golf course . Wish we could have stayed longer.

Don't hesitate..strongly recommended.

Fabulous place to relax and kick back

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a holiday! We have 3 daughters and our eldest brought one of her friends. The apartment, the balconies, the roof terrace, the swimming pool; it was all just perfect for a great family holiday. There was no feeling of being cramped, quite the opposite actually as the apartment itself is huge! The kitchen is lovely and cool in the heat of the day with everything we needed waiting for us, the bedrooms have ample storage space and the 2.5 bathrooms suited us down to the ground.

We all like being active so the fact that the apartment sits inside the private Penina estate made it really easy to get out in the morning or the evening for a run or a walk. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk away for golf with stunning practice facilities. The beach is only 10 minutes down the road too!

And we really liked Alvor and Lagos for wandering about and eating out. We were a little unsure about it because the Euro 2016 football was on TV but the atmosphere was so much fun and really friendly.

What a great place - quiet, relaxed and family friendly with a little bit of luxury thrown in. And I must say that the cost of the apartment itself, for what there is, at that time of year, was more than reasonable.

Mr and Mrs Hay, thank you so much for letting us stay at your penthouse apartment last summer and sorry it's taken us a bit long to get this review online. We're trying to move some things around so that we can come again this year and can only hope someone else hasn't booked it before us!!
