“Fabulous view and close to beach and Old Town”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We visited the apartment at the height of the Summer season and were very pleased with the location and fabulous view over the Old Town. The apartment is split over two levels with two very large balconies which are perfect for sun-bathing (padded loungers provided) or al fresco dining. The communal pool is lovely and clean and even though we were probably there the busiest week of August, it was no problem getting sun-shades or sun-beds. It's a shame there's no-where to get cold drinks close-by so may be a good idea to pack a cool-bag to bring down your own (there were several ice-packs in the freezer). Wi-Fi reception was excellent throughout the property (essential with teenagers!). Lynn was extremely helpful with any queries we had and supplied us with a hairdryer as we couldn't find one at the apartment and she also helped us at the last minute with a taxi return.

Negatives: The property might not be suitable for families travelling with toddlers due to the flights of stairs inside and outside of the property. Note there are no English TV stations except BBC World News.

So glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday in Apartment Magnifico and enjoyed it's facilities. Regarding the TV channels. I suspect you may have been on the incorrect "Source" as the particular package within the apartment does offer you over 100 channels of TV, a lot of them being English. The other "source" is Portuguese TV with only BBC World News and some English films during certain hours of the day. Hoping this did not hinder your holiday any. Good to hear that everything else was satisfactory.

“We enjoyed the accomodations”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you decide to stay at this property, just realize that Albufeira is a party town. They close the access streets in the beach area from Thursday until Monday and there is live entertainment from 10 until 2 am. The music and partying echoes throughout the area as the sound bounces off of all the concrete buildings into your bedroom. I'm over 60 and my days of surviving until 2, well let's just say...forget it.

“As Advertised”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The photos are not deceptive. This apartment is outstanding with a beautiful view of Albufeira and the beach. It's located a short distance from just about everything to make your stay a pleasant one. Lynne is very helpful with any questions you may have and the stay was very relaxing. I would love to rent this apartment again if I return to the Algarve.
