The two-floor apartment is tastefully decorated - love the giant fish - and we wanted to pack the top floor terrace balcony to take home with us. We spent hours up there in comfortable modern patio chairs. Also the smaller balcony where I ate breakfast in the morning sun every day. Because of our particular diets we had needs the apartment didn't furnish eg a kind of coffee filter funnel, but lucky us the apartment is within 10 minutes walk of two large supermarkets so we found everything we needed very cheaply. Otherwise the apartment is well-equipped, with easily-operated showers, constant hot water, etc. I appreciated the British TV tuning though personally I would have liked the option to view Portuguese TV too. I was too nervous to retune the TV box but no doubt I could have asked the owners to do that if I was going to stay for a season rather than just a couple of weeks. What a location too! Easy to walk to the beach, the town, local shops and even to the notorious The Strip!
I would suggest to the owners that when they expect folk to arrive late at night that a little food and water would be appreciated.
Stayed for a week with my wife and teenage daughter and the apartment was ideal for us.The 2 bathrooms were a huge bonus when getting ready to go out.The apartment has everything you need and the wi-fi was great as well.The apartment has its own sunbeds by the pool, we used them initially but then just started using the terrace off the bedroom upstairs as it gets Sun all day and you can be in and out for drinks and a cool down when required.Air conditioning was great and was a big relief as it was very hot during our stay.I would thoroughly recommend the apartment and will definitely return. Also Marin, who picked us up from airport and drove us to various places during our stay was excellent, always on time and cheaper than taxis. All in a great holiday and will be back.
We enjoyed our stay at this accommodation very central to strip and old town both in easy walking distance. Very quiet and away from madness but close to everything. Owners very attentive Marin taxi service was excellent and good value. Fat cats pub around the corner had great atmosphere and good food. Highly recommend this accommodation to anyone. Thanks for a great holiday !
We have just stayed here for 5 days, it is such a beautiful apartment, so clean and tidy with a lot of space, a sun terrace on the top floor and a balcony.. There is a swimming pool at the bottom which was so quiet and a perfect place to relax, you have access to your own sun loungers, would highly recommend it, you are in a great location about 5 mins walk from the strip, there is a supermarket over the road and access to other restaurants and bars near by... Apartment has everything you need to cook and supplies you with towels and extra bedding.. Can't say enough about it, everyone looks after you very well and go out of their way to help!
Robyn communicated efficiently prior to our holiday and answered any questions we had. Marin picked us up from the airport and told us all about the town, before delivering the 5 of us to a fantastic 2-tiered apartment that was spotlessly clean on arrival. Marin was available at a days notice throughout our stay to take us to the water park. The bedrooms were very spacious, although only 2 double beds and a pull out bed meant that one person in our party slept on the sofa. 6 or 7 people would be quite stretched for sleeping arrangements.
Fat Cats is literally just round the corner and is perfect for a hangover breakfast (including black pudding!). The strip is also very close but not so you notice if you have an early night. We really enjoyed days by the pool, which was rarely shared with more than one other couple.
Our favourite part of our stay was visiting the Old Town, and would recommend this to all! Great bars, restaurants and little shops to have a look round.
We spent our final day discussing when we could all come again!
