Guestbook comments from the manager

August 2013. We had a lovely holiday and having been to Albufeira 3 times before, the apartment is by far the best we have stayed in there. Having all the facilities there that we have at home made our first family holiday away with our son whose only 1 very enjoyable - it was like a home from home. Just the small things, like tupperware containers, the sun parasol and toilet roll made it much easier than we had anticipated. It was the perfect holiday home.

It was alright

  • 3 of 5

We were very disappointed on arrival as we weren't able to get into the apartment as it hadn't been vacated or cleaned due to the owners or management team sayimg that the previous holidaymakers could stay in

Longer . Now it does state in the terms and conditions that you should be out of apartment at 10 am. This was not the case also should have been met by someone also not the case . We have stayed in Corcovada many times and this is by far the worst for us personally. Please be aware when booking this one to

Make sure you can defiantly get into apartment as the times stated.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review about our apartment. We are disappointed to see that your holiday was not up to your expectations, we do try to be flexible on departure and arrival times to accommodate guests. In this instance there was a misunderstanding which led to a slight delay in the apartment being cleaned and ready for use for which we did apologise. We have discussed this with our team in Portugal to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. However, I would add that you were met by our representative at the allotted time who did spend some time with you but as you had been before he could not add much to what you already knew. You were able to leave your bags in the room at 2pm and arrangements were made for you to return at 3pm but you weren’t there so after some time our representative left. Although your arrival was not as we would have liked, we are pleased to see that you enjoyed the rest of your vacation.

lovely modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

Property has everything you would need along with plenty of extras. A home from home. Very modern. Amazing air-conditioning. Shutters are a godsend with young children. Kim Derek and lynn were very helpful great communication back and forth. Lynn even phoned the airport when I lost my purse. Pool was always busy ppl reserving sun loungers most gone by 8am. Thankfully staff came round and removed ppl towels and brought more loungers. Cannot fault the place . Overall a lovely place close to the strip and beach. Just sad to have left!

The apartment went above and beyond our expectations in terms of space and function - it had everything we needed to get settled. The location is fantastic only a short walk to the beach and to the local shops and restaurants. On days when we felt like relaxing there was always space on the loungers by the pool which was great as was the pool itself. I would highly recommend and I can not wait to return in the near future!

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from Derrick & Kim's apartment and it certainly lived up and surpassed our expectations.

It was spotlessly clean, bright and airy,very comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. It also had air conditioning which we didn't use but as our week went on and and it got hotter I could see how great that would be in the summer months.

The apartment is in a great position overlooking the pool,and it's great to sit there in the morning with the sun shining, having breakfast . The pool area has loungers and shades and the pool was cleaned every day. If beaches are a must there are a couple of small beaches within walking distance but also a taxi rank at the top of the strip about 5-10 mins walk if you need to go further.

The starter pack of groceries we were provided with was greatly appreciated and it made us feel less stressed after our journey to know that we didn't have to rush out and stock up just as soon as we arrived.Many small supermarkets are within short distance and larger one about 20 mins walk which has taxis on site for journey back.

I'll certainly recommend the apartment to friends and a family and dealing with Derrick and making booking simple and straightforward.

I hope we can return in the future as we had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
