“Great Apartment in a Great Location”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We (2 adults and 2 children aged 15 and 10) stayed at the apartment for 2 weeks in August 2013.

The apartment is based in the Monte Dourado complex and booked via Elaine and Cliff Robinson (who live in Carvoeiro) on behalf of its owner. I spoke with both Elaine and Cliff when making the booking and the arrangements for doing so were straightforward. Once the balance was paid, I was sent all the information regarding the directions to the property and how to obtain the key. I should say that Elaine also dealt very promptly with any queries that we had as the holiday approached e.g. what towels to bring (beach).

We had never booked direct with an owner/agent before and I did have some reservations (forever the sceptic) about the apartment actually existing.

I needn't have worried. The apartment does exist and is exactly as described in the advert and shown in the photographs. It has a nice spacious living area, 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin) and 2 bathrooms. Air conditioning is an optional extra, but with the temperature around 30 degrees each day I would recommend it. The kitchen has all you require and there is free wifi available via the complex.

The Monte Dourado complex is around 5/10 minutes walk from the beach, but it takes a bit longer on the way back due to the hill that you have to walk back up. The complex has 5 pools and you can use any, but we only used the pools right outside the apartment (as shown in the photos). One thing we noticed was that there wasn't the usual early morning rush to get a sunbed around the pool, and we never had any trouble getting a sunbed no matter the time of day. There is a tennis court on site, but no other entertainment, which perhaps the complex should look into. However, bars, restaurants and shops are only a few minutes walk away.

Elaine and Cliff came to see us the day after we arrived to make sure we were happy with everything, they also dealt straightaway with a query we had regarding the wifi.

Overall, we had a really nice holiday in this apartment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
