About Steve Crawley

My wife and I live in the South of England and we enjoy visiting our property in Boavista as often as possible, often having family and friends join us for part of our stays. We really love the immaculately kept Boavista Resort, the local area, the golf, the incredible range of restaurants and of course the year long lovely weather there! We have not regretted our purchase at Boavista for one single second, and are always looking forward to our next trip back!

Steve Crawley purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Steve Crawley chose Atalaia

This part of the Algarve is still quite unspoilt, and everything is certainly better value for money at this end of the Algarve. From golf prices to eating out, everything is far more reasonably priced, whilst the quality of everything is still present.

What makes this apartment unique

We absolutely love our property at Boavista - we have our own secure area within the integral garage where we can keep items there to save on luggage each time we travel, the double aspect garden space in our particular apartment is much larger than the average plot and it is south facing so we have sun all day. As a very recent build, the apartment is Boavista's latest design, which we much prefer over the older style apartment layouts at the Resort. Although we have full golf views front and back, we are not in any 'firing line' for stray golf balls, which we wouldn't like. We feel our location, plot, and design is 'just perfect'!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic two weeks at Boavista, the resort was beautiful and had all the facilities we needed and more. The children loved making friends around the pool and the club house provided a really varied menu, as well as a variety of theme nights, eg bbq night with music. The apartment was immaculate, show home standard with above and beyond the amenities needed and very importantly very comfy beds. There was an immaculately tendered and private garden where we enjoyed bbqs. Out of 10 we would give this holiday a definite 10.

Mr & Mrs McKirgan of Hertfordshire, England. August 2013

We were very impressed with the Boavista resort and its accessibility to Lagos and Luz. You are lucky to own such a nice property in a beautiful part of the world. We hope we will be able to visit again in the near future.

Magnificent Apartment & Resort !!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 12 night stay here in May. The apartment is well appointed all round, as described, with a spacious modern open plan kitchen / dining / lounge area. This particular apartment benefits from a large immaculately maintained garden area to the front & side, which receives full sun from early morning & into the evening ...ideal for early morning breakfasts or evening teas on the patio. Facilities within the resort were excellent & included unlimited free use of the 'Essential Fitness & Spa' and use of the communal outdoor pool which was spotless. The golf course itself is very well maintained & provides a challenge for all levels of player ...it provides some fantastic views towards the Bay Of Lagos, Luz, & the Monchique mountains. There are numerous other courses nearby, notably Palmares which is a must play if you are a golfer. All the resort staff were very welcoming, pleasant & friendly. The resort provided an excellent base from which to explore the unspoilt Western Algarve area, & also heading further north along the west coast towards the Alantejo Region, where we found the fantastic beaches of Amado & Bordeira. ...The cliff top drive between these two beaches, with it's various stop off viewing points, was amazing ! An information pack, compiled by the owners, was provided in the apartment which proved useful in highlighting places to visit & favourite places to dine.

I would certainly recommend that if you are thinking of a family holiday, a golfing holiday, or simply intend exploring the magnificent landscape of the Western Algarve, then this is the place to stay ! ...5 Star !!!

A Stunning Apartment in Sunny Portugal 🇵🇹☀️

  • 5 of 5

I am writing to thank you for a thoroughly relaxing holiday experienced in your apartment at The Boavista Golf & Spa Resort, Portugal.

The modern 2 bedroom apartment was beautifully furnished, generous in size and benefited from having a large private garden which attracted the sun all day. We certainly loved dining alfresco making good use of the table & chairs along with the sun loungers.

On regular trips to the Spa we were greeted by friendly staff before swimming in the heated pool & lounging in the jacuzzi.

The apartment was well situated for visiting Lagos Town, Marina & the Beaches with their hidden coves.

We visited many of the fine restaurants located in and around Lagos where we particularly enjoyed sampling fresh locally caught fish paired with fine wines as recommended by friendly and knowledgable owners and waiters.

Verdict : I have already booked and confirmed my next visit to this apartment.

Owner's Response: Dear Jonathan, Thank you for your review and kind comments. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our property and visiting the local beaches and restaurants. It is always great to escape some of the British winter and have some Portuguese sun at that time of year! We look forward to welcoming you for your next visit. Best regards, Steve & Judy.

Beautiful apartment, close to Lagos

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely fortnight at Boavista staying in this apartment. The apartment has everything you need and looks as good as the pictures. We used it as a base so we're out and about most days in the car but it was good to return and use the community pool which was huge.

Thank you Steve for some great recommendations for restaurants, Lagos has lots of them but be wary of the tourist traps where it's hit and miss.

We really couldn't ask for more and it is the best apartment we have ever stayed in. The only feedback to improve is it would have been great if the outdoor patio was a little larger, we didn't use too much as difficult to get us all round table with a much needed umbrella....also we would have loved wifi...no doubt my phone bill will be sky high 😳😬

Overall fab holiday, great location to explore and we will definitely be back to Portugal!

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second year at this wonderful apartment. It is absolutely wonderful for our family, the decor and aspect are perfect. It has everything you could wish for. Having such a large garden is a huge plus too. I do so love staying here, it feels like a second home. The complex itself is always so well maintained, spotless in fact. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough. There are some wonderful beaches on your doorstep and great restaurants too not forgetting a great selection of golf courses. What's not to like! Finally the owner as always is a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful, modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented, ground floor apartment. Every mod con you could ever ask for with modern furnishings. We did find seating 4 people around the outside dining table tricky due to the short verandah, but this was a minor issue. The property is close to a clean and well appointed pool facilities.

The property was very clean and tidy and we found the whole resort to be well maintained and exceptionally clean.

The pool area is lovely and has modern toilets and changing facilities.

My husband and I played 1 round of golf here and we enjoyed the course.

Lagos is a lovely old town with cobbled streets and plenty of restaurants to choose from. We were a little disappointed by the restaurants and didn't eat anywhere that we would thoroughly recommend.

The owners were brilliant to deal with throughout the booking process and in the run up to our stay and I'd thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Hi Lorna, Thank you for your review, and we are so glad that you all enjoyed our property and your stay at the Boavista Resort. It is a shame you didn't find some of the superb restaurants that are in Lagos - we have a Book File in the apartment where we have detailed some of the fantastic restaurants in the area, all of which we have tried and that we would highly recommend. With nearly 200 restaurants in the Lagos area, we realise a bit of local knowledge for some guidance is certainly beneficial for Guests that are new to the area! We look forward to welcoming you again in the future, and will certainly make sure you are aware of some of the truly fantastic restaurants in Lagos for your next stay! Thanks and regards, Steve & Judy.
