About Geraldine Bonner

Hello there! My name is Geraldine and my husband is called Ramie. We own a large 2 bedroom apartment in the Corcovada Sun resort in Albufeira, Portugal. We love Portugal as it is sunny most year round, which makes a change from rainy Ireland. If you would like to know anymore about the apartment feel free to contact us. Thank you, Geraldine

Geraldine Bonner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Geraldine Bonner chose Albufeira

We had visited Portugal for a number of years before buying the apartment. One of the many reasons we love it is because it receives more sun than any other part of main land Europe and has a climate similar to the Mediterranean. It is famous for its beautiful beaches, amazing countryside, vibrant nightlife, splendid golf courses, excellent hostelries, culture and popular customs, and the friendly charm and welcome of its people. The wonderful climate, warm and sunny all year round, gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of sport, cultural and leisure activities. The lively fishing town of Albufeira could not be better located placed perfectly and centrally, within easy reach of Faro (airport), the high mountains of Monchique and the historic castle town of Silves.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartments, new in 2008, all have large balconies and superior quality finishing, located within gated condominiums and enjoy the benefits of communal swimming pools and landscaped gardens. They feature fully equipped Danish kitchens complete with Siemens appliances. Bedrooms and living areas enjoy quality Jatoba wooden floors. All patio doors and windows have electrically operated thermo-lacquered aluminium shutters. Cool basement parking is also available.

This holiday development is fantastically located close to fine sandy beaches, golf courses and other sporting amenities. Within the resort there are four swimming pool areas each with a separate children’s pool, the main central pool having a snack bar facility throughout daytime hours. Crazy golf and restaurants also.

Absolutely loved the apartment. Very spacious and had absolutely everything you needed. Very close to the pool but also far enough away that you can have some privacy.

This is my 5th year returning to Corcovada and I will defiantly want to return to this apartment again in the future.

I dealt with Kelly for the booking and she couldn't have been nicer. Very pleasant.

Good accommodation in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This property is in an excellent location, 5 minutes walk to the main 'Strip' and a variety of bars and restaurants and the taxi rank. The apartment block is quiet and set in lovely grounds with a nice swimming pool.

Great stay in Corcovada - we'll return again

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in Block 41 of Corcovada.

Apartments - great living space, perfect size bedrooms - we had 2 bed ground floor aparment - great patio space on roadside, suntrap for afternoon, mornings sunshine on patio space outside living room. Kitchen so well equipped with all we would need.

Poolside - a quick stroll to the pool - plenty of chairs, usual ones booked and never used all day. kids pool small but good depth for smallies, big pool was great. lots of room for all, everyone had fun.

Lovely people staying here, mainly all families in big and small groups.

Location - as per my garmin watch 600m to top of the strip. Just outside the complex was a small supermarket for the quick bits and within 5-10mins there were many shops.

Dubliner pub nearby was great for a stop on way home from Old town or the strip. Food good there too, including the desserts!

The cobblestone footpaths were slippy in ungripped shoes, and plenty of hills along the way but easy to walk to places. Taxis often difficult to get if you were not near a taxi rank.

Wonderful well-maintained apartment, beautifully furnished, kitchen fully equipped, well kept gardens and clean pools in the complex. Walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants, beach and the Strip but .....peace perfect peace! Both the owner and the management were very helpful and friendly. We've had 3 great holidays here and would highly recommend this apartment.

Nice but...

  • 3 of 5

My friend and I spent a week here. Nice apartment but not perfect. Hate to gripe...locks on 2 of the door/windows broken and if it had not been for the security shutters we would have asked for a replacement apartment from Joyce, mentioned to Joyce when we arrived that lounge and kitchen floor were not that clean, she just shrugged. Asked it there was an info pack as we did not know the area she said no and would drop us a map off if she had time, we got our own, if she is the point of contact sorry apartment owner she does you a disservice I just did not like her or her manner and so my dealings with her were short and sharp. Pool ....could not get a loungers as all were "reserved" with towels from about 7am...appreciate it was July. Avoid here of you do not have children as it is family (ie child) orientated. Walk to old town is 30/40 mins and I am a fast walker so...the strip is just a 2 sided street and tout hell....taxis are cheap, the very long queue in the old town goes down quickly. We took taxis home as Joyce warned us about walking late at night! A chilled holiday though, fab weather.....but an idea to fix your locks.

Location

Coast/Beach:

There are plenty of beaches close by. One of our favourites is Santa Eulalia beach which is a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk. There is the main beach in Albufeira which is a 15 minute walk also. On the long stretch of beach below the central square, accessed through a tunnel, craggy fishermen mend their nets unperturbed by the sunbathers around them.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Faro airport which is a 30 minute journey to Albufeira.

Distances:

The Algarve is easy to get around and Alburfeira is close to other villages such as Lagos, Loule, Vilamoura and Carvoeiro. The best option is to rent a car so you can see the best the Algarve has to offer.
