the complex is great for a relaxing break, and is close to the centre, the thing i liked moost is it is high up so had a good breeze which was great when around the pool. found the booking site frustrating to use. but we booked very late so thanks to the owner for getting me out of a hole and taking the late booking. will def be back :)

We have stayed at this apartment twice now, it is a lovely, spacious, comfy apartment. I Kitchen is well equipped, you can easily cook a full meal if you wish. For eating out there are lots of lovely restaraunts in old town and some good bars, its just 10 minutes walk down the hill to the old town. The hill coming back up is steep but great excersise ! There are a few routes to & from the old town, some a bit less direct but less steep. We dont have kids but the apartment has lots of games, books & bits & bobs to keep kids entertained. Along with T.V & DVD player. The pool area is lovely with its hliltop setting & has a great view down to the old town & beach. Correspondence with the both the owner & the agency who look after the apartment is easy & straightforward. they will answer any of your questions thoroughly & promptly. We hope to return here for a 3rd time in the next couple of years :)

My main issue is with the property managers and the transfer arrangements they organised were extremely poor.

We had a lovely holiday in Albufeira . We spent most of our time out and about so didnt really use the full range of facilities . We did however feel the apartment was let down by the standard of cleanliness, and household linens which were old and drab and not up to the standard expected . We had to take pillows from other beds as the ones on ours were so flat . We were left grubby tea towels and a ripped bath towel . As we ate out for all meals this didnt really affect our enjoyment of the holiday . I would use the same complex but be more careful in choosing a more updat ed apartment.
Owner reply:

We are sorry that you found some issues with the apartment. We would advise that these be taken up with our agent in Albufeira, to enable them to be resolved to everyone's satisfaction. Unfortunately our agent was not aware of the problems and so was unable to act. We welcome constructive comment and I have discussed this with our agent and we will do everything in our power to ensure this situation does not arise again.

The Town House was very spacious and comfortable. The actual Town House itself is very nicely laid out on three floors with a private sun balcony. The accomodation is in a lovely location but is at the top of a steep hill. The Town House was located close to the pool but seperate enough not to be disturbed by poolside noise. The pool area is beautiful with a glorious view. The pool bar is very handy and the staff there very friendly. We had a delightful time there - a much enjoyed and relaxing holiday.

Had such a great holiday at No 5 Windmill hill - Beautiful- Were heading back this year again! We loved the peace & quiet away from the hussle & bustle of the town - but a short walk downhill to the old town (note to the ladies- put your heels in your handbag & flats on for the walk!) & 10 minute drive to "the strip" Recommend a wee trip to the beach at Sao Rafael!

It was a lovely place to stay, and the location was great-close to the beach and the beautiful "old town". The pool was nice, and there is great shopping close by. It was also a spacious apartmetn with a great and easy to use washer. Recommendations: Provide pool towels for usage, as we came from Canada and did not have room for these. Either that or mention on the website that you have to provide your own. We were not aware of this, and being that it was so hot our children wanted to take a dip in the pool upon arrival and could not. You need to provide cleaning supplies as the floors are tile and being that there is a pool and beach nearby, they get very dirty. There was no A/C (we did know this) and this made it very hot to sleep and cook. The deck furniture was very dirty and needed to be cleaned.

We had a very enjoyable week at this appartment. It absolutely met our needs for a family of 4 including 2 teenage boys 12 and 15. Location is at the top of a hill but is an easy 10 minute walk down , 15 minute walk back up or a 5Euro cab from old town centre. 7-8Euro back from the "Strip" We appreciated the provision of beach mats, umbrella, boogy board etc. We stayed during the May Half term, it was pleasantly quiet but the on site cafe/bar was only open on the Sunday. Plenty of free onsite parking. The description of the property states Internet, this was only available at the reception during opening hours and was 4Euros an hour. They only had one PC. This should be made clear. N-05 quoted a BBQ , this was not there. It would be good to provide one. Overall very enjoyable and will recommend

Lovely apartment, weather not so good this time but we had a car and went to our favourite places amazingly not getting wet. This complex is very quiet most of the time but near a school so a little noisey during school time, we were out most days so didnt really notice unless we were on the balcony. The apartment has everything and more making it very good value for money on a months booking which we had. maid service twice a week was great as you dont always get this on long term bookings. The dishwasher broke down and was put right the next day. The back up service from Cerro Nova reception was friendly and very good all English speaking which helps tremendously. We have been coming to the Algarve for many years and this was one of the best apartments we have stayed in. We would definately book this apartment again on our next trip to Portugal. PS: added a coffee maker and sandwich toaster to the kitchen making it 100% home from home for us. Loved the place hopefully better weather next time.

The apartment was as described and well-equipped.....(except for a decent corkscrew!). Some of the sockets did not work however. I was a little disappointed with the supposed sea view as this was just a glimpse through the houses. The apartment is on the edge of the complex and very near the school.......it is very noisy in the mornings....need to book after 14 June to overcome this. There is a nice, private, garden area behind the apartment. The pool area is lovely.....good pool and lots of space. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall - good value for money. I would recommend, especially when the school is closed......and remember that corkscrew!

The property was exactly what we were looking for. Very clean, spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. Ideal location too. We have a toddler and the owner kindly provided a travel cot which was a real help. The agency were also really nice and helpful. Already looking to book again for the summer!

apatment more like a home than a holiday rental, everything you need ed. Thought it might be closer to the beach but the walking did us good although wore out a pair of shoes in the process. Definitely stay there again if in Portugal

fantastic in every way, the owners have thought of everything we had a brilliant time!

what can i say that hasnt already been said. just got back today and loved the whole experience, the apartment is superb - met and exceeded our expectations. 2 adults and 2 kids - we neednt have brought any toys as there are loads there (well hidden if youve no little ones) and the inclusion of pram, cot, beach gear etc. is inspired. The walk back from the old town in 30 degree plus heat is not for the faint hearted so its a taxi job if your unfit but we managed every time with the kids and had no problems. certainly meant we burned off a few portions of piri piri chicken and cataplanas:) pool was great too, not too busy nice snack bar with decent pizzas and a brilliant view over the old town and the ocean. five stars from me.

4 of stayed at this property for 4 days in June 2011..... This place really exceeded our needs and expectations... was easy to drive to, easy to walk down to the main square and beach.... but the walk up the hills was brutal!

From the start to the end of our 10 day holiday everything was superb.The apartment was excellent (great value for money)everything we needed and wanted (welcome pack was brilliant).The whole complex was beautifully maintained.Views were spectacular and also our balcony was very private.In my view you always get some one who wants to find fault for the sake of it well we cant.I read one of the negative reviews (i think that was the only one and that pereson must be on a different planet). RIGHT IN A NUTSHELL PERFECT ACCOMMODATION AND LOCATION //// WELL DONE TO ALL CONCERNED

“Thanks for a great holiday, everything was so much more than we expected. Great apartment, complex, beaches, restaurants, and nightlife. We will definitely recommend It to friends” – Jo and Mel
“What a fantastic holiday ! We had never been to Portugal before, and found the Portuguese people to be really warm and friendly. The old town of Albufeira is diverse and very charming. Your home was obviously lovingly refurbished and had all the amenities we needed, the grounds are immaculate. It's ideal position allowed us to take advantage of all that Albufeira had to offer. See you next year !” – Pam and Herbie.
Fantastic accomodation at an unbelievable price...thank you so much!! Albufeira as lovely as ever...and I was really pleased with how close we were to the old town. The apartment was really lovely and so well equipped. The Windmill Hill pool area was lovely and quiet and relaxing - just what the doctor ordered. Thanks for all your help and communication prior to our holiday. I definitely hope to stay with you again sometime in the future. Thanks and regards. John K
From the first communication with the owners, we knew we were in good hands as nothing was too much trouble. The website cannot do justice to just how beautiful Windmill Hill is and how comfortable and clean the apartment was. The grounds and apartment are well maintained by the friendly staff and the local residents make you feel very welcome. The complex is very child friendly and our six and four year oldshad the time of their lives and were never bored, they also improved their swimming way beyond our expectations in the fantastic pool. We would have no hesitation in recommending this as a suitable family holiday.Stephen, Melanie, Matthew & Emma
