“Brilliant holiday”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Stayed here 23/12/2014 - 01/01/2015. Apartment was excellent, more than fully equipped, spotlessy clean, perfect location everything you need in walking distance. Outdoor poor spacious & clean with plenty of sun lounges. Views are spectacular right across the beach. Would recommend to others and will be booking again. Transfers & meet and greet very well organised, on time and friendly staff Robert & Philippa. Everything went like clock work couldn't fault the service. Thanks for a very enjoyable holiday

“5***** Apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We went to Albuferia for 10 Nights in October 2014, we decided on this Apartment for the views and we were not disappointed the view from both balconies is simply breath taking, the apartment is well equipped for all your need only problem for us no wifi in the apartment but if you go out to the balcony you can sometimes pick up some wifi connections from nearby hotels. The service we received from Phillipa and her people in Albuferia was 1st class, I would have no hesitation on recommending and returning to stay in this beautiful apartment. Thanks again for everything.

Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Every thing about this apartment is excellent , starting from the owner Philippa, when I contacted her and asked about the apartment she gave me full and clear informations she even helped me with finding a car to rent. When I arrived property's manger showed me the apartment and explain everything about the area, the restaurants, the beach and the attractions. She is so kind. The apartment is in a perfect location few minutes from the beach, the old city, the clubs and the shops.it is huge and bright It has two amazing terraces one in each floor viewing the beach and the city. It is modern and all the amenities are available . Thank you for making my holiday in albufeira unforgettable

“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
1
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!!
