We spent a week in this apartment, and had a wonderful time. As the title of our review suggests, the apartment has a great layout, fantastic views and brilliant facilities (eg safe, dishwasher, washer/dryer, satellite TV, DVD player and DVDs). The underground car park and small swimming pool within the complex add to the luxury of the property.
The location was quiet, and it is 10 minutes walk to the Old Town in one direction, and a bit further to the Marina. Although its a bit hilly coming back from town and the beach, that applies to most of Albufeira. Nearby is a well stocked and reasonably priced supermarket, open from 8.30-20.30 every day.
The only thing missing was a coffee maker, but Melanie and Duncan supplied us with one very quickly. Drinking coffee and eating a nata (custard tart) on the balcony is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
Wed definitely recommend the apartment (and have done so!), and intend to come back sometime soon.
