“A tranquil oasis”
Reviewed 17 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

First impression suggested it was far too remote without our own transport but a friendly taxi driver ensured we could cover all our needs. The highlight - breakfast on the terrace in the morning sun overlooking the lovely garden.
The shower room looks like an accident waiting to happen - no grab rails and nowhere to park your clothes. The broken shower head is inclined to detach jtself and descend like an angry snake spraying water everywhere, leaving the floor like a skating rink.
Be prepared to supply everything from washing up liquid to loo rolls.

“The Sanctuary - pure rest and relaxation”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Sanctuary offers excellent accommodation for both us as a couple and our two teenage sons. The veranda offers privacy to both relax on the sun lounger or eat as a family around the table. Excellent WiFi service in all rooms. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The pool and Jacuzzi are excellent for both families and adults. The apartment is part of a small block, offers good parking and is only a short walk to an excellent beach. We all had a great holiday and plan to return.

“Big Apartment”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

Good spacious apartment, sitting area outside, looks over the pool. Large rooms, 2 bathrooms. Location gd, not in town but 5 min drive to beaches and supermarket. NOTE - nothing at all provided (such as in other apartments booked) for example soap, body wash, shampoo & conditioner, tea/coffee, dish washing liquid - great apartment, but just be aware that you will need to take all of these things yourself (all other apartments we stayed in while on holiday provided most of these). Great apartment though, would book again!

“Beautiful apartment situated in a quiet location”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This apartment is very clean and extremely well appointed. The complex pool is particularly nice as it is set within a beautiful garden (very relaxing). The apartment is approx. 10 minutes walk from a lovely beach. The apartment is a great base to explore the beaches along the south west Portugese coastline.
