Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was like a home away from home.It was perfect,spacious, clean,bright,neat & modern.It had a complete cutlery set from plates,cups, glasses & wine glasses.The Oven & stove were great.My son who is a chef liked the oven & cooked a lot ’cos it cooked dishes well at right temperature.

The best thing was the central vacuum cleaner.Fantastic.We have stayed in some self catering apartments in various countries & never seen anything like it.This is the first time we see a condominium building that has that feature.It made cleaning a lot easier.The location is a 10 (10 being the highest rank as in fantastic).It's a 10 minute walk to the boulevard where you can have coffee facing the beautiful blue sea.It's also a 5 minute walk to the Supermarket that practically has all things.In total we love Sao Martinho Do Porto.Great relaxing vacation, nice people,nice place,beautiful weather & yummy coffee & croissants.

Lovely, spacious apartment in an unspoilt and charming resort

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Sao Martinho. This was our first visit to Portugal and we found there was lots today in this region, especially if you like culture and history which we do. We loved Obidos best of all, a mediaeval and charming town. We also visited Alcobaca monastery, the Convento de Cristo at Tomar and the fantastic caves at Mira de Aire with a water-park next-door - highly recommended!

The apartment is about 10 minutes walk from the sea front and is spacious and well equipped with a lovely long terrace , in a well maintained complex with heated outdoor pool that we had to ourselves a lot of the time.

Most of the holiday was pretty well perfect apart from the beds which we found to be rather low (Japanese style?) and somewhat uncomfortable. Also the air-con in the twin room didn't seem to work, however the temperature was a comfortable heat of around 25 degrees all week so it didn't matter too much.

We will recommend Sao Marthinho to our friends - we loved it here as it is not commercialised and is quite typically Portuguese.

All in all, a great stay.

Good location. Well furnished and comfortable. A few minor maintenance issues but not sufficient to cause a problem. Would book again if we return to the area

Good apartment, some things to be fixed

  • 3 of 5

Well, the apartment was really nice and we enjoy the 10 days holidays.

However was some things not working which was told to us when the arrival:

-Private garage (no remote key)

-Shower tower not working properly (was hard to get good water temperature)

-Toilet Fan not working.

-Air conditioning not working (Manager provide heaters to keep the house warm)

-Shared pool was uncovered and quite dirty and not working (January is not warm so not afect us, we didn´t used)

In the final review was a nice apartment, need some maintenance above described but didn´t afect us, so this was a good spot and hope come back with all the issues fixed! :)

Best Regards,

Owner's Response: Hello Igor Thanks for your observations. Air conditioning went before you arrived. Our property manager wasn't able to get it fixed in time for your stay so she provided heaters. The key for the garage needs to be re-programmed and we have the condominium manager looking after this. Because people like their showers at different temperatures it does take some fiddling with to get it right. I will get the toilet fan fixed. Pool is closed from September to May so should have been covered. I will point this out to the condominium manager. I'm glad these things didn't affect your stay and I will see to them immediately. Thank you Robbie

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

San Martinho is a lovely small seaside town, with a great beach, lots of restaurants and shops. We took the bus to Lisbon for the day, the bus stop was just around the corner, as was a super market, bakery, and internet access in the Tapas bar.

The apartment was well equipped, had air conditioning in each room, although we couldn't get the living room and kitchen units to stay on. The kitchen, one bedroom and living room all had doors to a lovely balcony which was great to sit out with a glass of wine.

Very quiet in the block, was a bit busier at the weekend, and was very well maintained. About 5 steps to get in the front, then another 5 to get to the lift.

The only reason we are giving 4 stars is that we found the double bed to be far too firm, and missed out on a lot of sleep as a result.

Lovely apartment in the best location for the town, and surrounding sightseeing (Obidos, Lisbon etc..). Great fish restaurant rio cortico (Largo do Bom Sucesso (ver mapa) Óbidos)

We rented a car, and parked it just outside, as there were parking bays on each side of the road. There was also a garage.

Many thanks for letting us stay

A vacation with triplets

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Kids loved the pool ( even if they did not use it much since the beach in just minutes away ) , the apartment and the shower.

Sao Martinho is great for families with the horse-shoe shaped bay protected and safe for children. Apartment is well kepted and in a new and quiet complex. Hope to return .

Car: recommended


The beach at San Martinho is a 5 minute walk from the apartment. The water is very calm due to the waves breaking further out as they enter the ‘Horseshoe’ shaped bay. This makes it ideal for children to play in. In the summer shade tents are available on the beach. There is also a lifeguard on the beach. A children’s playground is located at the end of the promenade and there are numerous cafes and restaurants dotted along the length of the promenade.


Car hire is recommended.
