Exceeded Our Expectations
Stayed here in June 2019. Surprised how well appointed the property was on our arrival. Kitchen had way more than we expected and everything we needed was there and of good quality. Bathroom is well appointed; bath with shower, large basin, toilet and bidet. Bedrooms had lovely comfortable beds and both rooms have quiet air con and blackout shutters, so it's lovely and dark, plus very cool at night to help sleep. Living/Dining room is a nice size and very comfortable, again with quiet but very efficient air con. The balconies are a good size and the upstairs (living room) balcony has a canopy to keep out the direct sunlight but maintain the beautiful views of Meia Praia Beach. The villa is a level 15 minute walk into town, or the land train stop is at the bottom of the road and is very reasonable at 3.50€ for a hop on/off service. We love this area and normally stay in a nearby hotel, however, we are now converted and will staying here (in this villa) again. Communication with owner prior to, and during the visit was great with speedy replies, and we were allowed a late checkout, which helped as we had a late flight. Thanks John for allowing us to stay in your wonderful villa.
Very nice apartment with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Especially enjoyed the balcony.
Everything was clean and comfortable and the balcony overlooking the water was a nice bonus. Walk to town was a bit lengthy, but not strenuous. We made it everyday and considered it good exercise. Bus readily available if needed.
Owner and management were in touch when needed and always helpful.
Had a lovely time. There was everything needed. Nice location for the beach and a bus stop at the bottom of the road. The only improvement would be better television channels.
Thanks for your review! We are so pleased to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the location. The satellite TV package includes, Sky sports, BBC, ITV and all major European and American channels such as CNN, Discovery, Nat Geo etc... not sure where it fell short but we will certainly look into it. Hope you will return again soon!
Meia Praia Magic
We stayed here in early September for 8 nights and loved the apartment. It's a 5 minute walk to the main beach car park, which we have used on other holidays. The apartment is part of a small complex which has a nice swimming pool and some sun beds which unfortunately have seen better days. The owner assures me that this is not his responsibilty and that he will flag it up.
Inside the apartment the kitchen and living area were on the top floor as you walk in and the bedrooms and bathroom are downstairs. The kitchen was fully equipped and had a Dolce Gusto coffee maker which we used several times - the instructions are in the drawer in the hall.
The cable tv was a bit of a disappointment as there was no BBC or ITV, which we have had in other properties we have used in the past. After a few days I realised that I could log into my Netflix account using channel 88 so we had something decent to watch before going to bed.
There are two restaurants within easy walking distance, the Atlantico, which you see on your left as you enter the complex and the Gaivota Branca nestling in the sand dunes above the beach. We found the dining experience at the Atlantico a bit grim, the menu had a poor choice too. Much better was the GB, and the views/ambience were better too.
My wife and I are in our 60's and didn't fancy the 20/25 minutes walk to Lagos in the evenings, so we found it was better to use our hire car, which curtailed any drinking I might have wanted to do. No big deal as I don't drink much.
The reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 was that on two occasions I had indicated that an early check in was desired and I even received confirmation that this had been arranged. However the managing agent said that the owner had failed to pass on this info, so we were a little bit inconvenienced on arrival.
Overall however, it was a really nice relaxing experience.
Such an amazing place to stay. Owners were a pleasure to deal with and the staff on site were also brilliant.
We will return!!
The pleasure was all ours & we insist that you do return! Glad you enjoyed your stay, thanks so much for a super review Aaron.
Unparalleled Views of Meia Praia
A comfortable and well equipped apartment with everything you need.
Nicely proportioned, and furnished to create the perfect holiday setting. Great for a family of 4/5 .
The upper terrace/balcony was the best part. Biggest enough to eat/drink comfortably whilst enjoying the sumptuous view across the bay.
We are already planning our returning !
We look forward to it! Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review Nick.
Treat the family to a day out at the 'Park Adventura' situated just behind the complex! Further information & directions in the apartment guest information book...
Palmares golf course is literally a couple of minutes away, with stunning views over the bay....
