Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Apartment set in beautiful calm location, with sea views in front, field views on side. We went late August and it was quiet, very safe with children playing outside. The apartment has absolutely everything you could need including all appliances, kitchen utensils, beach towels, sun umbrellas for the beach, wide selection of music CDs and DVDs. To top it all...

Management response:

Thank you so much, Ana, for such a lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Por do Sol so much, and your review is very much appreciated.
