“Friendly helpful owner and comfortable apartment”

We have had a lovely weeks holiday bathed in 32 degree sunshine throughout. The apartments two balconies were great for sunbathing and not overlooked. The sunshade was good for eating under, as previously stated though the edge rim could do with some bleaching where it has weathered. The pool was a fantastic size and well tended and perfect for cooling off in.

Sarah the owner was quick to respond to messages and very helpful the apartments kitchen is well stocked and the milk, butter and coffee appreciated on our first morning a nice touch. It was great to have beach towels and the apartment had all you needed. It is a little tired around the edges in parts and It would be good if all the windows had mosquito nets at them so they can stay open after dusk, we didn't need the air conditioning with the windows open there was a nice breeze.
Overall this apartment is great and the pool is lovely but its a shame there isn't anywhere you can walk to, you do need a car to get to the beach and town although by car they are only 10 mins away.

“Penina appartment”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Great location for Portimao and Alvor. Great nearby beaches. Rocha beach was our favourite especially good for that end of beach day beer. The apartment is part of a golf complex the hotel has great restaurants of high quality but quite expensive.
The apartment itself was very spacious which is great but is pricey on aircon if you use it. Big balcony great but old and tatty BBQ which is too overused to cook on really. This needs addressing. On the balcony is an electric sunshade which would be great if not too dirty and mouldy to extend. These are the only 2 negatives about the apartment itself. It is basic but very clean and also has good WiFi and sky sports. The owners were really helpful with any issues.
There is a shared pool which is lovely. Dependent on who else is staying in the apartments. For a few of the days we had to tolerate really obnoxious children who's parents could not be bothered to control them. Pot luck on that one.
All in all I would recommend this place as a good comfortable base for getting out and about. Also if you like golf the courses here are nice but expensive.
To get a full rating I would consider renewing the BBQ and sun shade. Maybe have a few more beach games to hand ( the bat ball pro used was no good) and make the main living area a bit more homely.

“Fantastic holiday, fantastic location, fantastic apartment!”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved this penthouse apartment. It was incredibly spacious, great for our family and socialising. The owner met us as arranged and provided us with plenty of information regarding the apartment. We would love to stay again in the future.
