Hello Peter, we were very impressed with the Apartment in Portugal, it was everything we expected and more. The taxi transfer was excellent and on time for pick up both ways. The site was very well maintained and the staff on Reception were extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of a holiday to the Algarve and would certainly have no hesitation to use it again.

A fantastic time

Hi Wendy We left a message in the guest book and have already recommended your apartment to friends and family who are thinking of going to the Algarve. We had a fantastic time and the complex itself was great. My son particularly liked the idea of drinking fruit cocktails in the pool!

Hello Peter & Wendy Thank you so much for the use of your apartment last week. You have a really lovely apartment, inside a well looked after and maintained complex! We really enjoyed our stay and am thinking about coming back very soon. I have set the key lock pin to 1980. Thank you once again.

Hi Wendy & Peter, First of all can I please thank you both for the ease in which it was to deal with you in organising our holiday to Albufeira. You could not have made things any easier for us which was a real plus when travelling with 2 and 4 year old children! Transfers etc. were very welcome when we arrived in Faro and our driver was very helpful in briefing us on general information on the Algarve. On arrival at your apartment we had no problems with the master-lock which proved to be very useful during our 2 week stay for obvious reasons! Your apartment is fantastic and set in an ideal location in both the Clube Albufeira resort and the Albufeira area in general. The proximity to the pools and restaurants is perfect, particularly where young kids are concerned, and the garden off your terrace provides ample play space for winding down, evening drinks etc. Your neighbours too are very friendly and were a pleasure to get to know during our stay. Very helpful. In reality the old town in Albufeira is a taxi journey for young families / older clientele. However, compared to ROI prices, very reasonable in our opinion at less than 4 euro each way. All in all we have a marvellous couple of weeks at your apartment and would have no hesitation in recommending to both friends and family. For those who choose your apartment this summer and in the future, they will not be disappointed. We have updated your comment book in the apartment with some recommendations regarding restaurants etc. which I hope will prove in someway helpful to your future clients. All the best to you both. Here's hoping we will be in touch sometime in the future for a repeat experience.

Great holiday home on a great resort

I was very impressed with the apartment and the resort itself. I have two young chiildren and so was a bit nervous about holidaying abroad but the apartment was like a home away from home. When I arrived my first impressions were how clean and comfortable it was. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen seems brand new. There is a flat screen tv and dvd player which is essential for a 'young' family holiday. It also has the advantage of being ground floor where you can eat out in the patio area.

I can highly recommend clube albufiera resort. There is plenty to do with three swimming pools and is far enough back from the resort centre to be peaceful yet close enough to be easily accessible. Overall an excellent holiday!!

Great value family holiday

The whole family enjoyed our week in Portugal immensely and this was in no small measure due to the package you provide. The apartment itself had everything we could possibly want, the air con is suberb. The swimming pools, restaurants, gardens and facilities on the resort were excellent and the use of the camp site facilities across the road provided anything that the Clube Albufeira resort didn’t. Albufeira and local beaches are within easy reach and public transport links were excellent so even without a car getting around was easy.
The masterlock is an excellent idea as it saves the hassle of checking in at reception upon arrival but this is also where I have one small criticism. We arrived at around midnight so it was very dark around the entrance to the apartment and we had difficulty seeing the numbers on the combination lock. It would have helped if the outside light had been left on to assist in this regard. It speaks volumes that this is the only negative thing I have to say about the entire week and this is really a very small point.
(an outside light has now been fitted)
We flew with Ryanair and, as you probably know, they have quite meagre baggage weight limits so your provision of beach towels was a huge benefit to us in this regard. In researching villas and apartments for our holiday most owners provide bathroom towels but you are very much in a minority in providing beach towels and although a small point it did make us look favourably at your property. Although the airport transfers are not included in your price those that you arranged for us were suberb and reasonably priced. We have known this to be a stressful area in the past but your guy was waiting for us as soon as we came through arrivals with my name on a board, he took us directly to your apartment, waited to make sure we were safely inside and was exactly on time for the transfer back.
In conclusion, our holiday was hugely enjoyable and booking with you has made our first experience of the Algarve a memorable one and one we will no doubt repeat. I would have no hesitation in recommending your apartment to anyone.

The break was perfect, great apartment and nice complex. We apreciated a lot the kitchen equipment, the air condition, the garden and the swiming pool. We also apreciate the clean sheets.
Ive already recommend the apartment to others friends. [ This was from a Spanish guest]

Hi Peter

I'd just like to say thank you so much for providing us with a fantastic apartment to enjoy our holiday. We had a lovely time and will certainly recommend it to all our friends and family.
The welcome pack was great and well timed and the location was great, the pools were just what we wanted, the travel cots arrived just in time for the afternoon naps and the company also provided us with a few extras too, which was handy.
The restaurants were ideal, the steak on a rock was amazing, the towels were a nice touch, the transfers were perfect, we'll definitely be back.
Thanks once again for a great holiday with excellent customer service
