“Perfection - absolutely faultless!”

We have just returned from spending 8 nights at Ruben's apartment, and what an amazing time we had. The previous reviews are absolutely spot on.

The apartment itself was very clean, tidy, had everything you could ever need, towels replaced regularly etc. The location was ideal also, with a stunning view from the balcony looking right on to the marina - watching the various boat trips departing and returning throughout the day. Each apartment block has its own huge pool with plenty of loungers - no scrambling for a lounger at 7am in the morning :) !

Veronika met us at the apartment (we used the YellowFish transfers company which Ruben kindly arranged for us - HIGHLY recommended and worth it!), and showed us to the apartment. Veronika was so helpful, welcoming and clearly passionate and highly knowledgable about Albufeira, she showed us multiple restaurants and nice beaches worth visiting, and gave tips about other worthwhile places to visit. In our experience, not many hosts/owners offer this added touch - it really is a personalised service and only adds to the overall holiday experience.

Albufeira Marina is only a short walk away from everything: Old Town, beaches, nice restaurants, shops, bars/nightlife! We walked almost everywhere in the blissful sunshine!

This was a surprise holiday for my mother's 50th and she couldn't have been any more pleased. I could write more but to summarise: the apartment is perfect and has absolutely everything you could ever need, as the other reviews testify. It's in a very safe and well-positioned location too. Terrific value for money.

Veronika and Ruben - thank you so much for all your assistance. We will definitely be returning next year.

From Darren, Angela and Eileen :)

“Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the boats on the marina - a great location!”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here end June/beginning of July 2015. Ruben arranged our seamless airport transfers and Veronica met us on arrival to explain all that we needed to know. Both were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was spotless and had a lovely position overlooking the marina and with a view out to sea - breakfast on the balcony was just what I wanted! The 20 minute walk into the old town we thought would be daunting but it was a pleasure to walk along the top of the cliffs looking out over the beach and we soon adjusted to the uphill legs. We enjoyed the pool but preferred the Galle beach a short taxi ride away from the taxi rank opposite the apartment, about 7.5-9.5 euro each way. It's very pretty with caves accessible at low tide, a bar/restaurant in a lovely setting and beautiful sand. We bought a cheap parasol rather than pay 15 euro for two per day for sun beds. We had a very relaxing and hassle free holiday.

We stayed in the apartment for a week, late June 2015. From start to finish I can't fault the apartment or the resort - everything was perfect.
From booking the holiday Reuben was very helpful, even sorting out our airport transfers (which were also fantastic). When we arrived Veronika welcomed us to the apartment and gave us helpful information about the local area, she was also contactable during our stay if we had any problems, but without being intrusive.
The apartment was exactly as it appears in the pictures - spacious, modern, clean, comfortable and with that spectacular view over the pool and marina.
The marina has plenty of reasonably priced restaurants and the old town is only a 15 minute coastal walk away. We had the most wonderful, relaxing holiday here and would not hesitate to book again or to recommend to anyone.

Great stay in this apartment, real home from home. Ruben & Veronika so helpful with loads of tips about where to go to eat etc. There are bars & resturants at the marina but the old town in only 15-20 mins walk where there are loads of options. All in all really enjoyed our trip and would be happy to recommend this apartment to friends and family.
