From Malmesbury, United Kingdom Oct 2011

Having stayed overnight with a friend who has an apartment in the same block, I had some prior knowledge of the quality of the accomodation. My expectations were met - the rooms were fitted to a high standard and appeared to have been well maintained.

I have only two minor complaints: the lock to the front door was very difficult to operate even at the end of our stay and the shower curtain in the en suite bathroom was neither long nor wide enough to prevent the floor being flooded whenever a shower was taken.

Otherwise, we were delighted with the apartment and would definitely book again!

From Hinckley, United Kingdom Jul 2009

We had a lovely 12 day holiday in the apartment. It is really beautifully decorated and very well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The complex is very quiet despite being quite large and the pool is more than ample for all residents. It is in a good position close to a small town with supermarket (the only downside to the complex - no shop)and the nearby beach is very quiet! A few good retaurants in easy walking distance and loads more a short drive away! Would recommend it!

From Manchester, United Kingdom Sep 2008

I travelled with my 3 year old daughter & found the apartment to be excellent allround. It was very clean , in excellent condition with everything that we needed. Considering what it is, it was excellent value for money. The pool area is superb, safe, spacious with shaded areas, it has a large pool & a smaller pool which we both used. The description on the website of everything was extremely accurate. The local area is also lovely with 5/6 local friendly (& very child friendly) bars serving excellent food & drink at great prices - I had a massive sea bass & vegetables & chips for 12 Euros. I have recommened this apartment to friends & would like to thank the owners for a lovely & totally hassle-free stay

first class apartment and excellent facilities within the complex. Thanks Maddy and Len

From Sale, United Kingdom Jul 2007

An excellent spacious apartment with first class accommodation, decor and equipment.
We found the overall complex of swimming pool, gymnasium and restaurant to be of the highest quality.Staff on the complex were polite, helpful and cheerful.
We feel a car is necessary to access the beach and shops as the site is a liitle isolated. The number of dogs on the site was a little off putting as this detracted from the high quality of the complex.


From Cricklade

This is an apartment of a very high standard it is spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was a real bonus to have 2 bathrooms and a large living area (and the cooling units which needed with 40C heat!). However, we were disappointed with the situation of the apartment. One balcony looked out over the main access street and the other a parking area. It was also noisy with dogs barking all night and frequent passing traffic - so much so that we had to keep the bedroom windows closed making the hot nights very uncomfortable.
The pool area is beautifully kept and even though we were there in August it was never too crowded. There are lovely grassy areas to sit on and plenty of shade - you can have sunbeds too if you are willing to pay extra. Families with children under 10 need to be aware though that there is no shallow end. The pool depth is 1m60 throughout which means that younger children cant touch the bottom and need to be strong swimmers. We were told off by the "pool police" for having an inflatable tyre - they do not allow inflatables apart from arm bands.
We decided not to hire a car before the holiday thinking that we would get buses or taxis or walk. We spent the first week without a car and did manage to get about - the nearest supermarket is 10 mins walk and the beach is about 30 mins - but we decided to hire a car for the second week and feel that, although you can manage without one, it is better (and in the long run cheaper- all those taxi fees add up) to hire a car. But dont bother asking the information office at Al-Sakia. We tried to get information from them several times a couple of times the office was closed (although advertised as open 10.00-13.00 week days) and when it was open they were unable to give us information about buses and just passed us the phone to speak to the car hire people. In the end we got a much better deal by sorting it directly and also tickets for nearby attractions were cheaper when we did it ourselves. Overall we had a very enjoyable holiday but not sure we would return. Al-Sakia is advertised as a small complex but it is much bigger than we expected.

On the 25th Sept 2005 we all arrived at Al-Sakia Village ,the apt was lovely ,really spacious ,everything you needed was there ,spotless ,and comfortable.The pool area was great , 2 pools ,our small grandson loved the small pool and the swings and slides .The gardens were lovely and well kept .The gym and tennis courts great ,but best of all was the peace and quiet .Lovely restaurants near by and Vilamoura was wonderful .Thanks to Maddy and Len.Anonymous, wigan lancs

We had 10 great days at the apartment. It is so well appointed and we felt really relaxed being there. The pool and bar are just a short walk away and are beautifully kept. We found numerous good restaurants and bars locally and at the Marina - we had to play tennis at the courts near the pool to keep our weight down!! The weather was superb and so was the holiday.Bob & Juliet Polwarth, Daventry / Northamptonshire

Lovely area with an outstanding pool/leisure area.If you want a relaxing holiday in a nice quiet area, then go here. It "does what it says on the tin" Paul and Angela, Manchester UK

We had a great 9 days holiday in Al Sakia. As well as the weather being fantastic the apartment itself was wonderful. It was really luxurious and allowed us to have a very relaxing time. The poolside area is excellent and the snack bar next to it serves delicious food at reasonable prices. The surrounding restaurants are excellent too (highly recommend Marufo 2). All in all an excellent holiday and we will definately be booking again for next year!Heather & Dom, Manchester

We thought the apartment was lovely; well equipped and clean. We certainly appreciated the mobile AC's as it was very hot during our stay. The directions to the complex and instructions for getting the keys were clear and hassle free. Paul was very attentive and helpful. The pool complex is the best we have ever experienced; better than the one at Vale do Lobo!!! Loved relaxing under the trees on the grassed areas. Would highly recommend 'Lemon Tree Restaurant' in Amancil. Finally thank you Len & Maddy for your help. Kind regards Joan & JohnJoan & John Madden, Manchester, U.K.

Thank you ever so much for making our stay in Portugal most wonderful.The apartment in Al-Sakia village is second to none.The pool/play area is fantastic for children and the apartment provides every facility to ensure it is child friendly.We most certainly will be booking for next year.
