Super communication super chap super venue, thank you for a great time
Nice place to stay
Nice little apartment for a family stay. Stayed for a week as a family of 4, the apartment was very clean on arrival and had all the basics you need for a self catering holiday. Was in walking distance of the beach ( about 5 mins) but there was plenty of free parking there if you drove down. Pool was rarely very busy so always managed to get a sun lounger even though it was half term. Nice pool, cold!!
Nearby beach was beautiful with a lovely seafood restaurant, toilets and somewhere to get a drink and ice creams ( lovely but expensive £85 for meal for 4 mains and a drink each) Not that many other restaurants in walking distance, maybe 2 or 3? But as we had a car we ate elsewhere too. I would say that a car is probably essential, as we needed it to travel into Albufeira (5-10 mins drive?) to go to the supermarket etc. Great communication with Steve the owner.
Places to visit around and about that we enjoyed: Silves and the castle there and the beach at Alvor.
The only little suggestion I would make is to maybe leave guests a bottle of water for arrival? We were delayed so arrived late at night. Luckily we picked up a small bottle at the airport but otherwise would have been stuck without water for the kids.
Little poetic licence in description
Overall the apartment was good. If you think of an apartment that is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac forget it.Next to the workshop of the estate, vehicles and men about at least 4 times a day. Newly refurbished bathroom dont know how many years ago? Asked about hairdryer Sorry but a hair dryer is not supplied, I have put them there in the past but they tend to disappear. Two leaking kettles, faulty combi microwave,I am sorry that you have some problems in the apartment, I was not aware of a fault on the microwave.If this is a big issue for you I can replace it.The towel rail in the bathroom will be replaced when I have a gap between bookings, but there is another towel rail in the bedroom.The hot water is supplied via an immersion heater and it will run out if it has not had sufficent time to re heat.
The bulbs in the light fittings are checked during each change over sometimes they do blow in between.Once again apologies Not what you want on a holiday.
Just a few simple things would make a difference, Some where to hang your clothes in the bathroom, Some information/folder about the local area mini markets beaches etc.
We have visited many similar properties and never had to buy so many basic items on arrival.
It is always regretable if faults occur during a guests stay,however what Mr Hall does not mention that all his complains were acted on immeadiatley. The kettle did leak, it was replaced within 2 hours, Mr Hall did not inform me that the replacment also leaked until 11days later, the day before he left.A new heated towel rail was fitted and and replacement microwave were also provided within 2 hours of my being informed as was the complaint over the blown light bulb.
A hairdryer is not supplied, I do not say that one is, nor do I say that I supply any basic items, but I happy to get some if a guest asks which I have done many times in the past
The hot water is supplied by an immersion heater and ,yes it will run out if not given sufficent time to re heat, we have had familys of 4 or 5 stay and had not had any complains about lack of hot water . The bathroom was completely renewed just 3 yrs ago.Does Mr Hall expect owners to renew their bathrooms on an annual basis?
The gardening staff keep their equipment in a yard at the end of the cul-de-sac but they are always working on the gardens, it does extend to around 3 acres and it is a full time job, they collect their equipment and then go.
I have been renting my apartment for the past 14 years, it seems Mr Halls expectations far exceeds the hundreds of very satisfied clients who have enjoyed their stay at the apartment and Sao Rafael.Had I ignored Mr Hallś complaints and did nothing about them then the review would be justified but all the issues raised were rectified as soon as possible but I received no thanks or acknowledgement of this from Mr Hall.I don´t know what more I could have done.
Beautiful apartment, very clean and well maintained.
Loved this apartment! The owner was very thoughtful and left a bottle of champagne for my husband and I to congratulate us on our wedding day which we had in Portugal that week.
The apartment itself is of a very high standard with a comfortable double bed. All of the essentials and more were provided. The WiFi is excellent and had no problems with multiple devices connected.
The property is located extremely close to the Sao Rafael beach but I would advise a car if you were looking to go into Old town or the surrounding areas.
I got ready here on the morning of my wedding and the apartment was spacious enough to accommodate bridesmaids, hairdressers and make up artists.
Very pleased with our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone. If we return for our anniversary I will be contacting Steve.
Well fitted out, spacious accommodation, great location and accommodating owner / its all you need!
This is our fifth trip to Portugal and this has been a real gem of a find, the location is great - easy to find from the directions and close to pretty much everything we wanted to do. The owner (Steve) was very helpful throughout and we were lucky enough to be on an early fight and Steve kindly allowed us early entry without any fuss. The pool is lovely too, we only used this once as the property is so close to the beach (always a preference) and has easy access to the A22 to travel further afield. Be warned that to use the pool you can go anytime it's open, but to get beds, you'll need to be there early (9am latest) and although there is a policy regarding reservation of sun beds, this was obviously easy to overcome and exploit! There are numerous good local beaches all within easy walking distance and there are some lovely places to eat too, of which our favourite was the Praia Grande Restaurant and Bar. Personal service and great food!
Air-con was very useful - especially when daytime temperatures had been 38-39 C!
Well stocked and kitted out - we used the kitchen mainly for the fridge but did cook a couple of meals too and this contained everything you could need.
Apartment was quiet and well sound proofed and thouroughly well kitted out with tech - again we didn't use any of that as we spent most time out and about, but great if you want to stay in or keep kids amused with TV.
All in all a great stay and location, we love Portugal and having a lovely place to use as our base was very important to us / we are confident that you'll enjoy your time here if you choose to stay :)
Thanks very much Steve.
Great apartment just a 5 min walk to the beach. A number of restaurants in walking distance but would recommend a car for supermarket and day trips. Apartment very well equipped, it had everything you could need, even children's beach toys and beach tent. The bedrooms were a good size with plenty of drawers and wardrobe space. The fold up bed for my little girl was great. Steve was great from start to finish, would definitely stay again.
