“I would highly recommend this fabulous apartment”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely week at Casatina at the end of August. The owners have made a huge effort with this excellent apartment ensuring guests have everything they need to make their stay perfect. It was spacious, air conditioned and furnished to an excellent standard. The large terrace was perfect for alfresco dining. There is a great supermarket a 3 minute walk from the apartment with an amazing choice of fresh seafood, fish and meat, perfect for a summer BBQ.The beautiful beach is a 10 minute walk from Jardin do Golfe and numerous restaurants can also be found at the seafront. Although the pool at the apartment was closed this was not a problem for us at all and we had complimentary use of the breeze complex during our stay which was great.
The owners were great to deal with and really went out their way to accommodate our needs. We will definitely be back to Casatina again and will highly recommend to others.

What a great holiday the apartment is top notch with everything you could want.
There are not many restaurants in walking distance so a car is useful.
The pool not being available wasn't the best but it is only a 10 mins stroll down to the pool at the beach that is very good.
If you walk through the golf course it is a very pleasant walk
Good supermarket 3 mins walk away for essential bits plus some great bbq meat to take advantage of the bbq on the patio.
Nice touch with the WiFi & British TV for a few quiet relaxing nights.
I would recommend the apartment to anyone.

Positives:
1. Nice, spacious and comfortable apartment.

2. Excellent location: supermarket: 3 min walking, nightclubs, disco, beach - 5 min driving or 20min walking. Shopping center - 5 min driving, fish market - 20 min driving, aquapark - 15 min driving. Couldn't be better.

3. Swimming pool: big and ~3m deep - excellent for swimming and diving. Nice bar next to it. Very quite - often you will be alone there.

Negatives:
1. No dishwasher although the description mentions it. Please update the description or make a dishwasher available.

2. Patio is sun exposed in the morning. We had to have breakfast inside due to the sun. It would be great if the patio has some sun protection curtains or blinders for the morning hours. Great for afternoon BBQ though.

Definitely recommended and would come back.

Thank you for your comments and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay. Your comments have been acted on and the dishwasher has been deleted from the inventory as a washing machine has replaced it and we have purchased a large sun shade and electric fan for the terrace. I very much hope you return for another holiday.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Vale do Lobo is a short distance from Faro airport about 20 min drive.The apartment and resort were excellent for a very relaxing holiday. We travelled with our two teenage sons. The apartment is newly refurbished to a very high standard. It is very comfortable and very well equipped with all necessary requirements including bbq. Although there were only four of us, there was plenty of capacity for six.. The beautiful sandy beach was about a fifteen min easy walk. There are a vast array of wonderful restaurants within easy reaching distance of the apartment including the Paxia restaurant and its wonderful array of fine food and wines which is a short walk from the apartment. For the teenagers there is a night club at the sea front and plenty of water sports easily accessible along the beach front.
