Apt.92 is a beautiful groundfloor apartment accommodating upto six people, set in the exotic landscaped gardens of Clube Nautilus,through which you can access a spectacular Algarve beach
Situated in the Algarve on the south coast of Portugal, blessed with whole year round sunshine and yet only two and a half hours from the UK lies CLUBE NAUTILUS.
Cradled in beautiful gardens filled with exotic plants, CLUBE NAUTILUS fronts directly onto a long sandy beach with its own Bar/Restaurant, walking distance through a private footpath from this traditionally styled holiday complex.
Apt 92,CLUBE NAUTILUS is also within easy walking distance of a dozen or more bars and restaurants, banks, shops and a supermarket for those essentials.
With emphasis on your well-being, the accommodation has luxurious fittings with two private terraces leading into your own garden, and is fully furnished throughout to a very high standard for up to six people.
There is a large living and dining area with a wood burning stove. A spacious fully fitted kitchen with granite worktops, fully equipped with oven and hob, dishwasher, freezer, fridge and microwave.
Also two spacious bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, two deluxe fitted bathrooms with marble surfaces, one with a hydro-massage bath, the other a shower.
A sofa bed is available in the lounge to accommodate 2 people.
Facilities also include a substantial swimming pool with separate children's pool and sundeck.
Being right on the seafront, the Clube Nautilus complex has fantastic sea views and is ideal for a break whether you wish to relax on the beach, enjoy the local food and drink or be more active with watersports, horseriding, walking or playing golf. It is also centrally located for all the famous golf courses (31 in all).
The location is ideal for all the family, being close to the beach, Zoomarine and Water Park, bars and restaurants of the town and the world famous Villa Vita and Vila Lara Health resorts.
Although in peaceful harmony with the coastline, Clube Nautilus is within easy reach of a dozen or more bars, restaurants and discos, all of a high standard which you would expect in the best known holiday resorts.
The pavement restaurants serve locally caught seafood at surprisingly reasonable prices. In the evening the narrow cobbled lanes come alive with people watching the street performers and thronging the bars which stay open until late.
Secure parking is available and there is a communal, sheltered swimming pool in the centre of the complex, which benefits from all day sun.
Sun loungers are available round the pool and also in the apartment for use on the patio.
Apt 92 Clube Nautilus is right in the centre of the Algarve, situated in a residential area in Armacao de Pera, approximately 30 minutes by motorway from Faro airport.
It is situated 20km west of Albufeira within close proximity to the bustling town of Armacao de Pera with its long stretches of golden sands.
The area is easily accessible from the new Lisbon-Albarve motorway.
The new motorway will open up the Western Algarve close by. Only about 15 minutes or so away is colourful Lagos, the launching point for Portugal's epic voyages of discovery. It is a place with old ways of living, existing side by side with modernity and tradition.
We stayed in Apartment 92 for two weeks in August 2011.The owners description of a Luxurious apartment isn’t very accurate it’s quite tired and dated inside, over the years the original crockery has been broken & never replaced only one tray in the oven, etc.
You get two small patios outside which overlook a road with a busy island, to the left a view of the towns water waste treatment plant and a collection of other high rising flats, etc. The description also mentions a sea view but this again isn’t a very accurate portrayal as you can only see this if you stand and peer over next door’s patio then you do get a glimpse of the sea!
We had several problems with water not draining from the bath due to the plug being broken but this was quickly remedied by Grace, the lady who looks after the complex. Overall, it’s OK but it didn’t meet our expectations and the property description needs to be altered to reflect this.
As the customer says problems were quickly resolved. The view from the apartment is of the swimming pool of the Hotel Nautilo a distance across the road, and the view to the right is of the town of Armacao de Pera. Our description says quote, 'Being right on the seafront, the Clube Nautilus complex has fantastic sea views'unquote, which in fact is accessed from the front door, through the immaculate gardens to a magnificant panoramic view, overlooking the ocean.The 2 patios refered to open onto a lawn available for your use.Since this review was submitted the apartment has undergone extensive cleaning.

Stayed for 3 weeksa party of two adults and two 4year old children. No change of towels / bedding or cleaning throughout. We had to use the washing machine to do our own.Shower hose in second bathroom requires replacement split at top, sprayed everywhere,so did not use this shower.Ironing board leg broken unable to stand to use.Walls in all rooms marked with dirty fingerprints and dead insects,requires cleaning.Pillows stained and dirty, require immediate replacements and the use of pillow protecters.Only three chairs on balcony and two sunbeds.The owner may not visit regular and possible is unaware of its condition.Would be good if a small safe was in apartment. The reception always closed. note on door.This could be a good apartment if looked after,location close to lovely beach and well maintained gardens. Nothing like pictures must have been taken when new.
Above comments noted and currently being addressed.It is worth mentioning here that the original reception area is no longer in use and the site manager is located in an office to the right of the complex entrance, as mentioned in the arrival instructions.He and his wife are normally around on -site to deal with any issues that may arise during your visit, and from previous customer feedback have dealt with problems swiftly.

The security was reduced as the main gates were removed allowing anybody to enter the complex. Its very expensive to holiday in the Algarve now although the weak £ against the € didnt help.
It is my understanding that the gates were removed due to a land dispute with the local council and the issue is under review.

We have just had a fantastic 2 weeks at the apartment. We had everything we needed for a family holiday and the complex, although quiet and not fully operational, was pefect for our needs. We didnt travel too far as the 2 minute walk to the beach was all we needed! The beach was perfect for our childrens ages and the slightly rough waves made for some good boogie boarding!
Plenty of restaurants nearby and some good shopping a car ride away.
Aqualand was a huge hit. Their special offer of a reduced fee for a second visit was too good to pass up.
I think well definitely be back!

Booked this apartment and from the onset everything was so easy. The booking, the paying, the transfer to the apartment (yellow fish-superb) and key pick up. Clean spacious apartment. With an added bonus of a small garden area too. The apartment is on the beach, a lovely sandy beach. Several supermarkets within easy reach by foot or very short ride in taxi. Plenty of restaurants. Lovely promenade to the old village.

Having recently returned from Clube Nautilus I would just like to express the delight of my two friends and myself who were thoroughly bowled over with your apartment which was furnished in excellent taste,was spacious,fully equipped,especially the kitchen and the two bathrooms,one having a jacuzzi.The location was very good,being able to access the local beach(50 yards away)by a private path.It was within reach of many and varied dining places; (English,Chinese,Indian,Italian,local cuisine as well as many cafes)There was a bus which went to Albufeira and a local taxi firm at low cost to many other areas.This apartment is thoroughly recommended.Vera Austin and friends,Manchester.

Having just spent a week at this luxurious apartment my wife and I are already planning our next visit there in the new year.As the advertising says it is less than two minutes from a glorious long sandy beach and in easy walking distance to many wonderful bars and restaurants.Eating in also proved to be a pleasure due to the apartments modern kitchen and dining facilities.It was a truly value for money holiday and only two and a half hours from the UK.Can't wait to return!Les and Ann Phelps,Southampton.
Carl/JohnI just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the efficient handling of our holiday booking in Clube Nautilus.Your apartment was simply one of the best equipped and spotlessly clean.I look forward to spending some more long lazy days by the pool and beach.See you next yearMike and Louise,Leamington Spa.
