Paulo the owner picked us up at the airport. the apartment was clean and spacious for our needs. I was travelling with my wife and two teenage children. It is well equipped with everything you would need , TV, Wifi, cooking utensils, if you decide to stay in and cook for yourself. I made good use of the coffee machine and Paulo had very kindly got me capsules for it. The main strip is only a 5 minute walk away up a slight hill which you can see from the balcony of the apartment which overlooks the pool which is large. 4 sun beds and an umbrella are supplied with the apartment which was great meaning you could come and go when you liked. the beach is beautiful and again only 5 minutes walk away. it has a wooden Boardwalk from one end right down to the Marina end and a number of restaurants along it. to hire 2 sun beds and an umbrella was very cheap, only 10 euros for the day. you can walk along the beach to quieter coves further along which again were beautiful. We travelled by taxi to Alvor one evening which is a lovely fishing village and was well worth the visit. Cost about ten euros each way. There are many restaurants, bars and cafes along the main strip in Praia da Rocha and off it which can all be walked to from the apartment in about ten minutes at most for the furthest away. We ate out every night as the food was great and also very reasonably priced. Also plenty of shops to peruse. Plenty of bars with TV screens for sport and entertainment by way of guitar/singers. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The resort was great and the apartment was really good. also had use of two bicycles belonging to Paulo. Paulo left us back to the airport and returned the safety deposit to me before leaving the apartment. I would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments. They are great and as described. Paulo was very good from the moment I booked and goes out of his way to help.

Had a fabulous holiday with three of my friends. Apartment was spotless and very modern, fully fitted kitchen which was great as we ate in a couple of nights because everything we needed was there. Paulo was very quick to respond when we had a slight problem with the key and he had someone out too see what the problem was within an hour of me contacting him :-). The resort itself has plenty for every age to enjoy.
Would definatly recommend Paulos apartment, the best I have ever stayed in!

“Great apartment and location”

Paulo was very helpful before our holiday and brought us from and to the airport.
The apartment is in a gated property which would be great for young children. It has its own allocated sun beds (4) and umbrella so there was never any issue in finding a comfortable spot by the pool. The pool is a good size and was never too busy which again was great.
The apartment itself was perfect for us - very clean, comfortable, bright, modern, with a balcony overlooking the pool area. It is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, juicer, hairdryer, Internet, DVD and satellite TV, even a Nespresso coffee machine. Paulo also let us use his 2 bikes, which kept my husband and teenage son amused! Apartment is on the 4th floor - there is a lift if you are not feeling energetic. The neighbours were all very friendly and helpful. It really is no more than 5 minutes walk from the endless beach and the restaurants, bars etc along the main strip. We did lots of walking and there is no need for a car - we went to Alvor by taxi which cost about €7 each way. There are plenty of restaurants and pubs to keep all ages amused. Our favourite restaurant was O Farol, on the beach at the marina end of the strip. The kids loved the beach and the banana boats etc on offer. There is a Spar close to the apartment and also another good supermarket just up from the Spar on the RHS along the strip.
Would definitely recommend Paulo's property and Praia da Rocha for families of all ages!
