Positives were
Beautiful apartment , very spacious everything in walking distance , clean local beach 5 min walk . Supermarket 5 min walk and has everything you could want . No car needed which was a real bonus .
Lots of restaurants . Bus stop across the road which run on time .
Owner helpful arranged our transfers from airport to apartment for a reasonable price .
Cleaners came in every 3 days to change bedding and towels and sweep and mop floors .
Negatives ( only a few)
Double bed tiny and with my husband being 6ft 4 and myself 5ft 8 couldn't fit in it together !
Mattress uncomfortable , also my son said mattress on single bed not great .
Pool area lovely , however pool could do with a little maintenance as a lot of missing tiles in both big and small pool . Saying that it's a lovely area to sit and relax around .
Overall we had a great holiday and would recommend to friends and family .

“A beautiful apartment, great location”

We visited this beautiful apartment with my young nephews. The spacious, very well equipped accommodation was perfect. The location is very central, easy to negotiate without transport. The apartment is so well equipped we lacked nothing, the kitchen having a dishwasher and washing machine.As with other holiday accommodation you will suppy toiletries. I heeded advice of other travellers and brought plastic beakers for the children. The local supermarkets stock all the necessities. The local restaurants are within walking distance, the apartment owners establishment is lovely and well worth a visit too. The beautiful beach is a few minutes walk downhill. The owner of the accommodation is friendly and very helpful. The cleanliness of the apartment could not be faulted. I cannot praise this place enough, the family enjoyed their break here so much

“Amazing, Wonderful and much more besides”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I have been back in the UK for one day and already I am planning to return. I have just come back from 10 days at Pomba Branca with my husband and 2 children aged 5 and 2 and to say we have had a wonderful holiday would be an understatement.

Gabriel, the owner was an absolute gentleman and so easy to deal with. Before we went he organised our very late at night transfer for us and made sure that the driver could let us in to the apartment. On the very first morning my 5 year old son locked the safe before I could set it (with all of our money, passports etc inside). Gabriel came and sorted it all out for us and nothing was too much trouble. I even had his mobile number and anytime I needed help with anything he was always there to do what he could.

The apartment itself was even lovelier than the photos suggested. On the ground floor was a big kitchen with all of the appliances you could wish for. There was a very handy downstairs toilet which meant the children didn't have to go upstairs all the time. The sitting room was a great size with a big dining table and comfy sofas. For the one day of rain we had access to BBC, ITV and CBeebies which kept everyone occupied. The sitting room opened out on to a large patio with table, chairs, sunloungers etc and then out of a child proof gate to the pool. It was wonderful to sit out and eat looking over the pool and also being able to watch the kids easily from downstairs. Upstairs were 2 good size bedrooms , both with onsuite bathrooms and one had a large terrace. It really was beautiful. There was also a secure underground car park for the hire car.

The beach was a few minutes walk and we spent pretty much every day there as it was a fabulous beach with lots of bars and restaurants - Olhos D'Agua was perfect (for us anyway) as although it had bars, restaurants, supermarket, shops etc it wasn't built up and so felt more local and was a lot quieter than Albufeira. Having travelled around we definitely knew we had picked the right area to stay in.

In a nutshell, the area is perfect, the apartment is wonderful and even better in real life and Gabriel makes renting off him easy. The children had a brilliant time and we relaxed fully. I would definitely recommend the apartment and the area to anyone who wanted a relaxing time but who wanted restaurants etc nearby and to be close to the beach.
