    Amazing place with everything nearby you need. A cheap cab ride gets you to more shopping and restaurants and return is so easy with a convenient cab area to get you back to the hotel. A bit of a walk to the beach but worth every second.

    Quiet- much needed R and R

    Lovely accommodation closes enough to all the facilities of Albufeira but far enough out to give peace and quiet. Family run business - all staff couldn't be more helpful.

    Excellent facilities in quiet strong but also easily walkable into the main tourist areas. Only downside was having deliberately picked pay whilst there the accommodation took 50% of the price of the stay on booking.

    Uns hat es sehr gefallen. Ich kann mich den vorangegangenen Bewertungen anschließen. Schön ein wenig außerhalb deshalb Auto empfohlen. Alles sauber schöne kleine Anlage nicht top modern dafür für die Preisklasse absolut top. Betten auch sehr gut u nicht zu weich. Wer Luxus sucht sollte mehr bezahlen u 5 Sterne wählen.

    Apartamentos en una zona tranquila, apartados del centro , propios para descansar pero indispensable tener coche para poder moverse ya que queda alejado a pie del centro o playas.

    Hospedagem

    Muito bom!!!! Os quartos são confortáveis e acolhedor. O ideal é alugar um carro pois para sair à noite e par chegar ao movimento à noite você gasta mais ou menos uns 20 minutos de carro. Gostamos muito de tudo principalmente dos centro de Albufeira.

    Agréable séjour

    Le seul point négatif pour moi c’est Que compte tenu qu’il y a une cuisinette, il devrait y avoir du savon à vaisselle pour laver notre vaisselle car ce n’est pas les femmes de ménage qui le font. Un minimum serait apprécié comme,sel et poivre. A noter que le dimanche il n’y a pas eu de nettoyage à la chambre et j’en ai pas été avisé. Bon rapport qualité -prix
