Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just back from 10 nights here. We had a lovely spacious one bedroom apartment with a good size balcony. Everything you need is in the apartment, washing machine, iron, ironing board. The apartments are old style but spotless. The location is excellent, 5 mins walk to the beach, supermarket and restaurants. The pool is a nice quiet area, no hassle with sunbeds and a gorgeous cafe bar attached where Tony and Sandra will cook you delicious toasties sambos. WiFi is free, just pay a refundable deposit. Ruben and Laura are lovely hosts and are very helpful. There was one drawback...no aircon. This bothered us at first but we had two fans and there is always a bit of a breeze in Portugal so we got over it. Sheets are changed once a week and towels twice but you can always request clean towels from the laundry downstairs. It's not flash but very comfortable and friendly. Would I return? Yes indeed I would! I'm not giving it the full 5 stars because of the lack of aircon, that's all.

I would highly recommend these appartments. On arrival we were met by Laura and brought to appartment. The appartment was fantastic and spotlessly clean. WiFi worked well and TV had a number of English speaking Channels. The appartments are in an ideal location less than 10 minutes walk to bars and restaurants. There is a Supermarket 5 mins away.
Tonys bar onsite is very good and only €3 a pint of Superbok. Air conditioning can be purchased for €5 per day.

Laura, Manuela and Fernando were lovely and we had a good time in this apartment, which is in a lovely quiet area.

The only negatives that I'd highlight are that the pool needs to be cleaned - there is green all around the sides and quite a number of leaves and bugs on the bottom. The calk around the sink and bath could do with a refresh and a stopper should be provided for the bath.

Whist there is a bar/snack bar of sorts, it only opens around 4 p.m., so you need to bring your own snacks to the pool.

The apartments are only a short walk from the beach/strip, which was great.

Visited here at the start of June, the manager was very helpful and showed us to our apartment. The apartment was lovely and very spacious, although could do with an updated bathroom. The beach is very close and there are plenty of restaurants and pubs within a short walking distance.
The apartments have a pool area and a pub which serves food on site, the pool area is very clean and is in the sun all day, the pub is family run and they are all very friendly.
Overall we had a great time and would love to go back

Just back from a 8 day stay .the Apartments had everything we needed. Oven , Washing machine , Microwave, TV, Air con ,( there is a small fee for this). There were 2 pools available, one has a small bar ( Toni's bar) which is worth a visit for a drink/snacks, very friendly. We used the 2nd as it was a bit quieter.
The main strip is about a 10 min stroll ,quite a few bars and places to eat and there are steps down to the broadwalk/beach.
And finally a shout out to the guys/girls at reception they were really helpful and friendly especially with our small problem regarding our return transfer to the airport.
All in all we would definitely return.

Stayed end Feb/March, weather very good for time of year. We were in older block over looking road,large apartment, but cold of a night luckily there was a plug in fire which we had to use. Rubin & Laura very pleasant and the accommodation is excellent value for money. You can get the number 35 bus from the strip to Portimao which runs about every half hour. Excellent very large supermarket on motorway half hour walk away.

Well situated apartment, about 5 minutes from the main part of Praia Da Rocha, there is a lovely pool and a friendly bar on the complex. The apartment was spacious (we had a 2 bed) with a balcony and we were lucky to have the top floor end apartment that had an enormous terrace. The rooms were large and had all the facilities needed for a holiday. Reuben and his mother were very friendly and helpful on booking in and couldn’t do enough for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely book here again. Highly recommended. 10/10
