Summer vacation with family

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment. Good location. Clean, good beds, air conditioning, TV, enough closets and nice little kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher. Small balcony with gas BBQ witch we used 3 times. Bigger balcony on top level for sunbathing and hang the beach towels. Apolonia is a great supermarket. Many nice restaurants. We had a rental car. We missed Wifi and a swimming pool for the kids.

We had a lovely time. Very relaxed. We went to Faro old town and Forum Algarve shopping mall. Every day to the beach. Sometimes the waves are challenging. We sure would come again to this apartment. Also the communication with the owner was excellent.

Just returned from 3 weeks in the apartment. Had everything you need for a lovely holiday. We had a car, which I think is a must. Has 2 balconies which get the morning sun. We didn't use air con or heating and temperature was fine. Great to have British tv. Hope to return later in the year.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely lovely. Clean, comfortable, spaceous, quiet and was ideal for our stay. It only took us about 15 minutes to walk to restaurants in the night (3 of our group are not walkers!!). There was a gas BBQ so we ate in on 2 nights as there were great supermarkets selling lovely fresh fish & meat.

Everywhere was so clean and the service in restaurants was great.

The beach was beautiful and only a 15 minute walk although we did drive there.

We had a problem with the downstairs bathroom door lock but as soon as we reported it the agent sorted it super quick.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

appartment vale de lobo

  • 5 of 5

location of apartment was excellent for the tennis academy, just a short walk away. The apartment was lovely and clean and tastefully furnished. Maid service once a week was good. The praca was expensive and too busy for us at night . We liked the chicken shack in Quatera . We would definitely return to this apartment and we loved Portugal . unfortunately our 13 yr old was very ill and was admitted to the hospital in Faro, however the staff spoke English and were very kind and helpful. The only downside was there wasn't a pool, the pool at tennis academy was crowded, but understand we paid less for apartment because of this

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully Barringtons will be up and running in the not too distant future which will be great to have a pool close to the apartment again.... and yes the chicken shack on the way to Quateria is the best chicken ever and amazing value!
