Everything was perfect

Garry, Hull, October 2017

Apartment was so nice we did not really use the rest of the complex. Everything was PERFECT, from booking to the minute we were dropped off back at the airport.

Stunning Penthouse

Mandy, Cumbria, September 2017

This penthouse apartment was stunning, well-furnished and had everything we needed. Large L-shaped balcony with both sun and shade; loungers, recliners, table and chairs. The kitchen was well-equipped and the apartment spacious all around with air conditioning in the bedroom and living room. The TV had various cable/digital channels. The area is lovely and the location brilliant with beautiful beaches and a Marina.

Apartment had everything we needed

Sam, N Ireland, August 2017

Immaculate apartment, cleaners did a superb job. We had everything we needed and had a fantastic holiday

It was a great experience

Janis, Latvia, June 2017

Great place, area, 2 pools, very nice apartment, huge terrace, nice view and beach is really close, like 10 min on foot. Liked it!

The view was absolutely unbelievable

Stephen, Drogheda, Ireland, September 2016

We really enjoyed our stay. This is our 9th year in a row booking through Algarve Getaways and our 4th staying in the Encosta de Orada complex. We were very happy with the apartment and service provided to us. Even with a minor plumbing issue, staff were easy to contact and came to fix the problem straight away. The view was absolutely unbelievable and the complex is very close to the Old Town and Marina. Highly recommended.

Lovely apartment

Susan, Kirkconnel, September 2016

The apartment was lovely and really clean. The complex was very good and the team always very professional.

Fantastic penthouse with outstanding views

Valerie, Birmingham, September 2016

Fantastic penthouse, clean, spacious and the views are outstanding. From start to finish, the holiday, transfers and service were excellent. Already booked for 2017. Algarve Getaways keep up the good work.

Very polite and friendly team

Nigel, Kilcreggan, April 2016

The apartment was exactly as described in the advert. The local management team were very polite and friendly. The welcome pack was also appreciated! We had a good holiday and felt we got good value for our money. We would certainly use your company again.

Great holiday!

Vicki, Markinch, Scotland, July 2015

We had a great holiday. Everything was fabulous and very well organised thoughout the whole process.

Excellent service

David, Chesterfield, May 2015

The apartment was lovely, there was nothing we could fault. The local management team provided an excellent service.

The view was absolutely beautiful

Carmen, Bangor, N. Ireland, October 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Algarve Getaways. This our second year in a row staying in the Encosta de Orada complex. We very much enjoyed our stay last year and therefore came back to the same place but a different apartment. We were very happy with the apartment and service provided to us. Even with a minor shower problem, staff were easy to contact and came to fix the problem straight away. The view was absolutely beautiful and the complex is very close to the Old Town and Marina. Highly recommended.

Excellent apartment and pool

Frank, Swindon, August 2014

The apartment and the swimming pool were excellent. The pictures do not do the apartment justice. The local team was on hand to meet us on arrival and run through a few things we needed to know about the apartment. Our holiday was very good, from booking to arriving back at the airport.

A wonderful holiday experience

Anne, Lanarkshire, September 2013

Without doubt Algarve Getaways is the "BEST" company to deal with. I would highly recommend, very friendly staff and nothing is ever too much trouble. Thank you again for a wonderful holiday experience.

One of the best apartments I have stayed in

Denis, Dundee, Scotland, July 2013

Service by Algarve Getaways was first class. The apartment was ideal, very spacious, huge balcony with great views set in lovely surrounding gardens and pool. All in all it was one fo the best apartments and complexes I have stayed in over the years and there have been many.

Great service, apartment and complex

Debby, Brighouse, July 2013

Great service, apartment and complex. Nice touch that we received coffee, milk and even wine on arrival, would definitely recommend.

Apartment a high standard, security a nice bonus

Nicky, Belfast, N. Ireland, May 2013

The apartment was very clean, well presented and furnished to a very high standard. The security of the apartment blocks was a nice bonus. It was a short walk to the main area of the town where there was an array of shops, bars and restaurants. I would holiday at this particular apartment again.

Simply First Class

Alan, Doonlea, Scotland, August 2012

The penthouse apartment was superb. The complex and facilities suited our family group perfectly. We had 4 apartments in total. Group comprised our sons and daughter, their partners and our 3 young grandchildren. All had a wonderful time, particularly making full use of the 2 large pools. First class airport transfers. The Algarve Getaways staff were both efficient and friendly, giving us all the information we needed. We did not need to call on their services after arriving but knew they were at the end of the phone if needed. Simply first class, will definitely use you again when returning to the Algarve.

We had the best holiday

Caroline, Telford, May 2012

We had the best holiday. I will be back very soon & my family want to come after hearing how great it was. Thanks again.

We couldn't want for more

Carolyn, Merseyside, England, July 2011

We thorougly enjoyed the apartment, and couldn't want for more. Algarve Getaways provides a very good service.

Excellent apartment

Dan, Bethnal Green, London, September 2010

Excellent apartment, very impressed. No hassle, no problems. Will use Algarve Getaways again.

Superbly located

Bill & Barbara, Wirral, August 2010

Even better than expected. Superbly located and well served by local public transport, very convenient for the Old Town. Certainly would recommend to others.

Great location with lovely views

Samantha, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, September 2009

We had a fantastic holiday, everything was perfect from the apartment to the weather to the gorgeous pool. The complex was fantastic, in a great location with lovely views. The whole booking process was easy. We don't usually return to a holiday destination as we prefer to go to different places but we are seriously thinking about coming back next year as we had such a good time!

Fantastic - the best we have stayed in

Mark & Karen, Poole, Dorset, August 2009

We had a wonderful holiday in the Algarve. The apartment was fantastic – we both felt the best we had stayed in – it was immaculate, very well equipped and an incredible setting. The apartment complex was really nice, very clean, always quiet and the pool was great for the children particularly the children’s shallow one. We would without a doubt use Algarve Getaways again, you were fantastic.
