Family from St. Ives, United Kingdom Jun 2015

The apartment was a lovely size and very open and airy. The facilities inside the apartment were excellent especially the toys and beach/pool toys for children.
We felt the outside furniture was well past its best - it was broken and very dirty.
The walk into town, whilst steep we found to be very pleasant. The same with the walk round to the marina.
The biggest problem we had was the noise. There was a nightclub in hearing range that went on until about 4.30 in the morning!! with loud music and equally loud voices. The cobbles around Windmill Hill made the traffic and drag along suitcases sound extremely loud, especially at 2 am!
Overall though, we had a great holiday. Thanks to Lesley for her help with arranging for everything to be prepared for our daughter and grand daughter to join us for our second week.

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 :)

Couple from San Miguel De Salinas, Spain Jun 2014

Very Nice comfortable and well equipped duplex in a quiet area and on a very well run estate. Very good supermarket and restaurants within walking distance . Lots of bars and restaurants in Old Town area. Easy to walk to and cheap taxi back .

Couple from Doncaster, United Kingdom Sep 2013

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 :)

Couple from Glasgow, United Kingdom Sep 2013

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

Couple from Spalding, United Kingdom Sep 2013

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.

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.

“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
