Recent guest reviews
loved it! Super spacious - old but gold! super friendly and relaxed staff ! Superb swimmming pool! Apartment so spacious, that you end up really enjoying it like home! I enjoyed the moedern kitchen a lot, the bath tumb, the privacy! Nearby Burgau beach was excellent for us! Closeness to Luz is also perfect! It´s one of the hotels where we felt grounded! Would always come back! But you need a car!
we loved this place. Not super luxury - but for us a perfect match. Very friendly staff, great rooms, loved to pool area and in general very quite - even in high season Very Important: Do NOT go without a (rental) car here. You need it for everthing. But you can park in front of your appartment. Nothing asround. (small nice pool bar ) No Restaurant, no supermarket, no beaches without a car. But a perfect quite place with a wonderful pool area to stay and discover whole of south west portugal. Internet is very limited. Only at the pool bar yet. Nobaccess at your rooms. So, if you need this 24 hours a day - you might not like the place - we had a wonderful time here.
We had a beautiful view of the ocean out our front window and we sat and ate breakfast overlooking the view every morning! Everyday we had fresh bread delivered for breakfast and we made our own breakfast! Grocery store is close to get all your needs! The apartment has all you need with kitchen that has kettle , toaster, microwave, stove, fridge and dishes and pots and pans and everything needed! Living and dining room bedroom and bathroom and even an area outside to hang any wet bathing suits! Also a beautiful pool! The beach is not far either just a 5 minute drive!
We spend a quiet four nights here, the pool and surroundings are very nice, the views spectacular. Walks along the cliffs in front of the property are great.No internet access in rooms, so great for going of the grid.Good starting place to explore the western Algarve.
We absolutely loved our apartment, and could not fault it, it made our holiday, we asked for an apartment nearest the sea, and we got it, number 110, absolutely perfect for us. The swimming pool was great too, and the staff were lovely very informative and friendly. Our only small criticism is they need a bigger sign to say reception as we and two other couples all drove straight past it and drove on down to the pool area as that is what we all see when we book, stop at the top of the slope, don't drive down to the roundabout. We had a starter pack in the fridge when we arrived, of milk, butter, jam, eggs, tea bags, coffee, bread. Good for walking to Luz and beyond to Lagos or the other way to Burgau and beyond, we really enjoyed both walks and the apartment as described in the review below, our apartment was the same, really good.
Quiet location on cliff tops, within walking distance across the cliff paths to either Luz or Burgau approx 30 minute away. The accommodation we stayed in was a studio( number 111) had a good kitchen with dishwasher and double bed behind a half wall making it like a separate bedroom. There was plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom had a full bath with shower over. There was no air conditioning but not needed in May as the apartment was cool with tiled flooring throughout. It was clean and fresh towels delivered frequently. Outside a terrace area with table protected from full sun but grass in front of that remained sunny all day. The view, amazing out to sea, and the area so quiet all that could be heard was bird song and the sea against the rocks. The pool (water very cold) was large and clean with wifi available there and at the cabana where you could buy snacks and homemade cakes . A lovely touch of fresh bread was delivered to our door every morning also. Good place to stay and explore the Western area of the Algarve.
Beautiful resort, very quiet but only a short taxi ride into luz or burgau. The cliff walk path is a little rough so not recommend for families with buggies. Lovely villas and very nice reception staff.
The biggest advantage is location - all small houses are located on the cliff with view on Atlantic sea. Apartment is comfortable equipped with all necessary facilities. Place designed for people who like walk around the cliff and spend time away from the bustle of the city. It is really necessary to have a car in this location. By car it is few minutes to go to Burgau or Luz, where we have found nice beaches and small restaurants serving delicious cuisine. 2 important information - internet is the only available close to the reception - what from my perspective was rather the advantage. Apartments are not equipped with air condition but it is not necessary. Due to the construction of the houses (we spent our vacation in August) - temperature inside is always below 25 deg. C.
We have already spent 20 from the 30 days of our holidays. Houses with all facilities and service cleaning done all days, including kitchen. The swimming pool is 10 meters above the sea, which gives us an amazing sensation. We strongly recommend for couples with or without kids.
We stayed in a house at Porta Dona Maria in early June. The setting is just stunning, overlooking the Atlantic ocean. The walks along the cliff to Luz and Bergauare breath taking and best done in the early or later part of the day if in Summertime.
