Guestbook comments from the owner

'I wanted to write to say how much we enjoyed staying in your apartment recently. It was an excellent base for our stay in the Algarve. Our family of six never felt crowded there. The apartment was well equipped (even down to the coolbox and pool toys) and spotlessly clean. The Pay as you go air con and fans were very useful some nights. We loved the central location, but rarely found it noisy. It was great to be able to walk virtually anywhere at night, but never be too far from home to walk back. Our children loved the pool – it was nearly always just us there. At night, when the children were asleep we spent the evenings on the balcony ‘people watching’. In two weeks we were not bored! On road parking was rarely a problem, we usually parked along the road to the local market. I would also like to say how helpful and thoughtful your local agent were. Thanks again.' - Doctor Geoff Spencer.

Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment, loads of space, very clean and nicely decorated; in a great location. Everything that was needed on a family holiday was provided - the kids loved all the 'pool toys' and we really appreciated having the pool 'furniture'. The pool was lovely, clean and quiet and we had it to ourselves most of the time. Our teenager loved that WiFi was accessible around the pool (though unfortunately not so much in the apartment).

Situated on the main restaurant road which was great for people watching - but no noise to be heard on an evening.

The location was perfect - being a short walk from the main beach, shops and restaurants/bars.

The correspondence from the owner Mark was excellent from start to finish, the complimentary wine he arranged at the local restaurants being a nice touch also.

All of the meals eaten out were great - we especially enjoyed Ele&Ela and Chef Antonio (opposite).

Of the waterparks - Slide and Splash was much better than Aqualand (though was twice the price).

The short walk to Algar Seco is an absolute must - exploring the rock formations and swimming in the rock pools was brilliant (along with the cliff jump which was a buzz).

We would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment or the resort to friends and family.

Great Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great Apartment. This is our 5th or 6th visit to Carvoeiro now and this has been the best apartment location to date. A few minutes walk from the Square, the Beach and the restaurants/bars its a great location putting you right in the middle of everything. Its also just far enough away so that it isnt too noisy at nights. The shared pool is very clean and comes with sunloungers and chairs, and the apartment provides loads of kids toys to use in the pool and at the beach. Although its a shared pool there were many times when we had the whole thing to ourselves. Really clean apartment and air con available if needed on a token basis which worked out cheaper than previous apartments. Great customer service - there were a couple of occasions when we needed something and this was sorted out very quickly and efficiently. The wifi is very weak in the apartment but its not the end of the world as you get a full signal on the stairs or by the pool. Would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend.

Stay at Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Carvoeiro. The apartment was well equipped and excellent location to the beach (5 minutes walk) and a host of eating places. The pool area was great and most of the time we had it to ourselves. Only niggle was the available Wi-Fi signal was poor in the apartment, but fine around the pool area. We hired a car for a week to visit waterpark and surround sites, but you can take local buses/taxis if you wish. I would stay at the same apartment if visiting Carvoeiro again and would recommend to a friend. Mark the owner provided a very efficient customer service

A really nice apt, kitchen well equipped, lots of beach/pool items. Beds and sofas very comfy. Well looked after with two good sized balcony's. The pool is great had to ourselves. The apt is two floors up so no noise from neighbours, yes it is overlooking one of the busier streets but no problem at night. Great for people watching. So many really good eating places within minutes, next door (free bottle of wine) the indian opp - lamb with spinach, small restaurant almost next to indian also very good. O Patio in the square is pricey but excellent. Beach is minutes away as are local buses and taxis - really nice place to stay.

Lovely spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable, well equiped apartment. Although in a main thoroughfare with many restaurants outside, the aparment itself inside is very quiet.

The pool is a very decent size and you usually get it to yourself. As it is behind the Apartment it is also peaceful.

We were without car so went on bus trips via lagoa bus station(10mins) using the bus which goes along the street outside the apartment to connect to other buses. There are local small "supermarkets" but if you want a proper one you can get a taxi from the rank down the road to the supermarket(Intermarche) for 5 Euros. (The supermarket will phone you one to come back). However, there are a huge number of places to eat here anyway! Although the food is not really expensive, you will find restaurants cheaper if you can be bothered going further afield (if you have a car!). However, this is definitely a location where you dont need a car. We went on trips to Zoo Marine World and had a Cater-meran boat trip with barbeque. You can book these trips from a shop in Carvoeiro and pay a small amount to be picked up from Carvoeiro and taken there and back so no travelling problems. We visited Silves which a nice town which has a huge Arab castle to visit. We also went on a longer bus journey to Lagos. In the apartment at the time of year we went we didnt need the air conditioning. Outside there was always a pleasant breeze. The transfer service recommended by Mark was very efficient and smooth. Overall, this was a relaxing apartment and the place to stay.

Extremely comfortable apt, kitchen well stocked, balconies great people watching, close to all restaurants and bars. Best thing in apt was range of sunbeds, sun mats, lilos (particularly liked the alligator). Beach few minutes walk. So many restaurants to choose from but can recommend the one next to the apt, O Patio in the square, Avela, Tapas Bar in square also nice place opposite the apt small not expensive but good food, also the Indian restaurant opp is good. We had a really relaxing time in this spacious and well cared for apt.

From the Owner

We love Carvoeiro because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches and range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Faro airport less than 45mins drive away.

250m away the Carvoeiro beach.


Carvoeiro is situated approx. 75km from Faro airport with easy access by Motorway. A small lively pretty village/beach resort, close to main town of Portimao. Good choice of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the town centre beach. Combination of old and new architecture.


Carvoeiro is a great resort for families who want lots of attractions to keep the little one’s occupied on holiday. It’s really close to the Zoomarine aquarium and zoo, Aqualand water park and Krazy World theme park. Silves 15-20 mins by car, the old Algarvian capital in Moorish times, is a must for all sightseers, the town, church and castle are seeped in history; there are also many fine shops and restaurants around.

Further Details:

Supermarkets, bars, restaurants available locally. Car hire and excursion office, internet 2 minutes walk.
