Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we booked wi Algarve Getaways who are very helpful. This was our third year in Encosta da Orada & the second in this apartment. Fantastic accomodation everything that you would ever need, two balcony so so you can get the sun from sun rise to sunset, the balcony with sun loungers is a bonus overlooking tennis courts. Pool area is spotless & very secure complex.

The walk to the town is about 15 minutes down hill, if you don't want to walk back then there is a taxi rank in Old Alburfeira Town. Well out of town so no noise late at night. The Marina is also within walking distance and has good bars & restaurants & you can book boat excursions here also. Would highly recommend this complex.

Fresh Bright Apartment with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th time in the same apartment so that says it all. Clean, bright and well equipped. A Secure apartment in a nice development. The old town is about 20 minutes walk downhill. (uphill on the way back !) We are usually there after Christmas and over the New Year period and it is extremely quiet and peaceful. There are no bars or restaurants within the immediate area but there are mini-markets and bars about 5 minutes walk away. The service from Algarve Getaways is exceptional and everything promised is delivered. We had to delay our break this year due to a bereavement and they were extremely helpful in allowing us to re-schedule, which was very much appreciated. The company organised all our transfers and it's nice to see a friendly face at the airport when we arrive each time. We will certainly continue to visit this particular apartment, it's now a home from home.

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Three of us - two adults, one teenager - stayed here in August 2014. The apartment was bigger than we expected for a one-bedroomed property and was beautifully equipped throughout. The furnishings and the kitchen fittings were all top notch with enough cutlery, crockery and glassware for ten times as many guests.

The bathroom was spotless and the shower was hot and powerful. The only quibble would be the lack of a toothbrush holder.

There was more than enough storage space and a safe for our valuables.

The balconies were excellent. We had breakfast each morning on the one off the kitchen. The rear one overlooking the tennis court, gardens and out to sea across the marina was the icing on the cake - we spent many an hour out there enjoying the late afternoon sunshine.

Entry to the complex and the individual apartment blocks was only possible with the supplied keys and it felt very safe.

Location-wise, it was about 15 minutes walk downhill to the centre - slightly more coming back as it is at the top of a fairly steep hill. Fine for us but someone less mobile might find it a p;roblem. The upside is that it is very quiet and peaceful at night.

All in all, a very enjoyable and pleasurable stay. We would definitely try to book this apartment again if we return to Albufeira.

A wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is like a home from home, has everything you would need & a kitchen more than well equipped for a holiday. The double balcony is fantastic, it gets the sun all afternoon & the sun loungers are a bonus. The pool area could do with a few more Sun loungers. The complex is located on a hill, walking down to The Old Town is fine, but can be a trek back up if you're not too fit! I would highly recommend this apartment .

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have booked with Algarve Getaways and they have certainly maintained their high standard of service.

We have stayed in this particular apartment before and everything about it is outstanding. Would'nt hesitate to recommend it to anyone as it has everything you could ever wish for in a self catering property.

Will certainly book again next time we're visiting the Algarve.
