Property's facilities are excellent - two bathrooms with hairdryers in each one. Kitchen cooking facilities are brilliant - has everything and more that you need. Could easily make a Sunday dinner if need too all the saucepans utensils and good oven there. Even a dishwasher!

Apartment very secure and my 3 year old twins were very safe in the apartment and complex.

Had a fantastic holiday and hope to return next year...

I would like to thank Hazel and Lawrence for a fantastic apartment for me and my family to stay in. My girls had a ball and are looking to go back next year only it has to be longer. The apartment was fantastic as I could make the family meals and still be able to watch the girls at the pool. I was hands down the best holiday we have been on. A thousand thanks and will be in touch shortly to rebook.

A big thanks to Marta for looking after us when we arrived too. Much appreciated.

A full 5☆ from me.

Excellent apartment, fantastic location, 5*

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally post holiday reviews but had to comment on the fantastic holiday my husband, 3 children and I experienced on our first visit to Portugal and in particular our stay in this fabulous apartment - I hated to come home ! We loved everything about the area (except for the condition of the pavements which are all treacherous!); the 30'+ temp, the warm evening breeze, lovely food reasonably priced, the friendly & hospitable locals, family atmosphere, the Oldtown -there wasn't a thing to dislike!

The apartment was very clean, large and spacious and our family (incl 9,14,& 16 yr olds) never got 'cabin fever' which has happened us in other apts!.

It is one of the best situated in the apt block, 30 steps to the pool, I counted !

We opened the patio doors in the morning and only closed them at bedtime or when going out, it really was like living in/outdoors and it was great not having to lock up to go to the pool. The patio was a real suntrap in the mornings, shaded in the afternoon which was lovely if you wanted a break from the strong sun.

9yr old played football on the grass, teens were happy with the good wifi coverage and smart tv. Pool was always fun and great atmosphere around it. 30 mins comfortable walk to Oldtown, taxi home <€7, 10 mins to Strip - worth a visit. Oura Beach, 20 mins. Supermarkets & some lovely good value restaurants nearby on road leading to beach. Defnitely don't need a car.

What topped it all was being in Oldtown the night Portugal won Euro 2016. The atmosphere was electric - being part of the celebrations will be a lovely family memory to have in years to come.

Negatives ?? It wasn't one for me, but only one UK charger/adapter so the iphones/ipods had to wait in a q to get charged!!

Would love to return to Albuferia again and would def check availability of this apt if we do.

Thanks Hazel !

Excellent apartments and perfect for a young family like us, as it was ground floor and right next to the pool. We could still do our cooking/making snacks while watching the kids play happily right next to us. So It was great not having to pack everything up & lock up the apartment just to go to the pool for the day - we had everything on our doorstep, yet still private with a small dividing wall & little bushes around the patio. We were very impressed with how secure the apartments were as all the doors/windows had automatic shutters you close down when you go out and going to bed. The pools were great and cleaned regularly. We didn't know what to expect not having stayed in apartments but everything we needed was there for cooking and cleaning and it was spotless, Tv with all the channels which thd kids loved & in a nice quiet location. Just across the road from the complex is the dubliner bar/restaurant which does amazing food! So handy if you dont want to go far, or somewhere handy to end the evening as its so close. Also has a little park out the back, - perfect for a cheeky cocktail while the kids are busy! Can't fault the place. We are definitely planning on going back as soon as possible! Perfect 1st family holiday for us!

A delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband (who has limited mobility) and I booked this spacious apartment for a long winter break. We were delighted with the apartment, it was exactly as described on the website, and had everything we needed - a fully equipped kitchen, good wi fi and more TV channels than I have ever seen.

Parking is available outside the front of the apartment and the pools are opposite the patio opening off the kitchen and living room. Electric window shutters mean the apartment is very secure.

Hazel was very helpful and able to answer all my many questions. Marta who manages the apartment in Albufeira was also very helpful and always available when needed.

Restaurants, bars and shops are within walking distance.

I would highly recommend Hazel's apartment and we are returning for a second stay in May.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 5 who hired this apartment for 1 week August 2015 . The apartment was large with all the facilities you might need . Having said that we never did find the bbq advertised but I am sure if we had contacted the management company they would have sorted it for us .

Excellent free wifi

The bedrooms were a good size with the double being ensuite and the twin having an external shower room.

Air conditioning worked well

There were 5 of us with the youngest being 13 , the extra bed provided , my children did not find comfy ,and we used the sofa bed in the lounge area instead , sheets were provided but a duvet as well have been appreciated.

The kitchen had everything we required except tea towels and it was lovely to sit out in the evenings having cooked our own food with a few drinks

The pool area was kept clean , smallish for the amount of people using it in August and if you wanted a sunbed by the pool you would have had to be out by 8am . Fortunately this apartment being ground floor and having 2 of its own sunbeds meant that we did not need to do this . The apartment patio facing the pool goes into shade between 12 and 1pm which can be good or bad depending on how hot it is.

Lots of places to eat in the area but use a review site to look for well reviewed restaurants .

The strip was a short walk away and this was appreciated by my older children .

Beaches in the area were lovely and we walked several times to the local one

Supermarkets are within easy reach to stock up on food etc

Black out / security blinds were good , so good we ended up sleeping in the mornings quite late because it was so quiet and dark.

I would recommend this apartment to anybody who likes excellent facilities , does not require onsite entertainment but with a very lively area on your doorstep

From the Owner

The Algarve is our favourite place to be even in the winter time. The people are so friendly and helpful and most speak very good English. Cleanliness in the restaurants / bars are well above standard for holiday resorts and we very rarely find grubby/dirty amenities. Our long term plan will be to spend the winter months at our apartment when we finally retire so that we can escape the cold and wet weather of Northern Ireland.
