“Spacious Apartment, Stunning Views and great location”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Found the apartment to be spacious and clean with a modern kitchen and bathroom but the most impressive feature is the view which is stunning. The balcony is a good size with space for 2 loungers, table and chairs and a clothes dryer and it catches the sun all day.
Also the essential wi-fi signal was good.
The pool is a great size with plenty of loungers but there was no other facilities open in the complex.
The location is great, overlooking the Old Town and Fisherman's Beach.
Plenty of shops, restaurants and bars in the surrounding area but it is only a 10 minute walk down to the Old Town and the beach.
Making the booking and arrangements through Philippa (holidaylettings) was simple and straight forward. Can't fault the great service.
If we are heading to Albufeira in the future I will be hoping this apartment is available.

“great place to chill out”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

this accommodation is as described, dealing with Philippa is a pleasure no request for information is to much trouble,
the complex is about 20 minutes slow stroll up an incline from the old town unfortunately walking up and down inclines is a feature of albufeira in general.
accommodation is on the top floor (2 sets of stairs no lift )
we would certainly go back again and would recommend it with no hesitation.
the view from the balcony is brilliant day and night.

Lovely to hear that you had a great holiday and yes, those views from the apartment are the most amazing eh.... When I am there myself, I feel my whole body and sole relaxing. Heels, ha ha, maybe on your next visit, take some sparkly flipflops for the walk home. Glad you enjoyed your stay and that I helped to make your holiday as stress free as possible. Philippa

Dear Ray. So pleased to hear you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed the apartment and area and were also happy with the service I provided. Regarding the mattress and pillow protectors, I will immediately address these issues with the company I use to change the bedding etc., but do wish you would have called the number provided in the Welcome Book and this could have been immediately addressed for you with new ones being issued during your stay. I hope that this will not stop you from visiting again and if you do have any other issues, do call the number provided in order to put them right immediately. All the best. Philippa
