“The Best Apartment in Albufeira (Probably)”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

All the 5* reviews held up for this apartment, we stayed there for 9 days in August 2014 with my 17yr son, had done Albufeira Old Town before but not in such style. The apartment was clean, well maintained, large and modern, views from both balcony’s just about unbeatable, and West facing they get the sun until around 8pm. Philippa arranged airport pick-up and we were met at the Cerro Branco by Lynn, who showed us the apartment and told us about the local area.

The location is really great, just ten mins to the top of the escalator and then down to the Old Town and beach where there’s plenty of restaurants, bars and night life. There are also some good restaurants and bars near the apartment if you don’t fancy the walk. We visited the Old Town most nights, always walked back up the hill, it’s not so bad. Got a cab to The Strip one evening and the Road Train back, really easy.

For some reason the sea was un-seasonally cold for the first part of our stay, (could have been due to hurricane Bertha) so lots of days by the lovely pool which was warm, sometimes there was hardly anyone there other times is was difficult to get a lounger, great views from here as well. ‘Dominios’ (or Dominic as we knew him) the upper terrace bar was open during our stay, Wi-Fi available here, great Belgian beer and nice food, although, I believe the bar will be closing this year!. The sea warmed up for the latter part and the beach is lovely and sandy, various water sports available and bars and restaurants by the beach and lots of people.

About a 25 min walk from the other side of the Old Town is the marina, where boating, scuba diving, party boat trips can be booked, (although there are also booking kiosks in the Old Town) there’s a few bars and restaurants and colourful apartment blocks.

We had difficulty finding fault with the apartment, the only thing to mention was, we could hear some music noise from the Old Town bars which rolled up the hill into the main bedroom, but we only had a couple of ‘early nights’ and being so close and overlooking to the town you might expect some noise. We had a great time sitting on the balcony after a day in the sun, taking in the view with wine and beer, and a bonus ‘Albufeira Day’ was while we were there, they put up a stage on the beach square for two nights with open air music and fireworks, for which sitting on the balcony gave us the perfect view.. marvellous.

“Gorgeous apartment”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at this apartment for 8 days early July 2014. Phillipa made the whole process extremely easy from booking the apartment to organising transfers to and from the airport - very professional!! Its a very clean spacious and modern apartment with two floors. The outstide space in the apartment is great and the sun shines on both terraces for the majority of the day. The view is amazing and great to spend the evening on the terrace watching the sun go down and listening to the business of the Fishermans Square.
The Old Town of Albuferia is so close and its only a few minutes walk to the beautiful beach, shops, bars and restaurants.
I stayed with my husband, sister (all in our 40s) and 18 year old daughter. We all loved it. We did not use the complex pool as the beach was so close and the pool bar was not open (it was early July and think it opened mid July). This was no problem though as the beach was so handy.
One draw back especially for my 18 yr old was no Wifi - i would recommend that the owner installs it.
Would definitely return and highley recommend this apartment. Thanks to Phillipa for making the whole process so easy and making our first trip to Portugal so great!!

“Fab apartment, great stay”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Spent 10 days at this lovely apartment. Apartment very spacious with 2 amazing balconies with spectacular views where we spent most of our time. One downside was the seagulls that spent a lot of time there too. Apartment is in a great location, approx 5 mins downhill and you are in the old town with its amazing restaurants and many bars. 20-30 mins walk gets you into the new town were you will find "the strip" with plenty more bars and restaurants ( our favourite was the sizzling stone). We travelled with 2 teenage boys and there was plenty for them to do. Phillipa was great to deal with and even arranged transfers for us which I would recommend.
One negative about the apartment is that there was no wifi which was really missed.
Overall a great apartment and I would recommend a visit.

“Magnificent at Magnifico”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We 3 brothers and wives in our 50's and early 60's have just returned from a wonderful 10 day holiday [26/07/14-04/08/14]. The apartment is spacious and has been well maintained. Location is excellent and unless you mobility is severe you can cope with the walk at an easy ambile. Managment staff and organisig staff excellent and delivered what they said, thank you to them.

“Great apartment, great view.”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We are a group of friends who have a spring break every year, we stayed at Magnifico in March. The apartment is in a great location with a downhill walk to the Square. Some nights we walked back a couple of times we got a taxi, which is really easy from the square and only €3.90 - well worth it. The view from the apartment is stunning. We would definitely stay again. The arrangements were easy and efficient. The agents and transfers great.
