It gets better every year

John, N Ireland, October 2017

A first class service, nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful staff. This is our 8th time in this apartment and it just seems to get better every year, a real home from home. We had a wonderful holiday, it certainly lives up to and surpasses expectations.

A lovely relaxing time

Wendy, Edinburgh, June 2017

Had a lovely relaxing time in Portugal. Just what we wanted. The booking process was quick and easy. Apartment was excellent, clean and spacious. Transfers excellent. We were met at the apartment and given all the info we needed and knew that afterwards, they were just a phone call away.

Such a beautiful location

Gary, Buckinghamshire, October 2016

An excellent apartment in such a beautiful location. The staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable but unobtrusive. Very happy with the airport transfers, were given excellent information from the driver. We also appreciated the welcome pack on arrival very much, lovely wine and biscuits. Overall an excellent holiday.

We will be back next year

Robert, Corby, September 2016

The apartment and service were very good and the complex was very safe and secure. The Algarve Getaways team were very helpful and friendly. As always, it has been the best experience and we will be back next year.


Wendy, Liverpool, August 2016

My husband and I were overjoyed at the lovely welcome pack to help us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were greeted on arrival and shown around our apartment by very friendly staff, who were on hand when needed. The apartment was lovely, with everything we could have possibly wanted. Very secure complex with beautiful gardens and very clean pool and surrounding area. We wouldn't hesitate to use Algarve Getaways again.


Lorraine & Rich, Liverpool, July 2016

Please thank everyone involved in our holiday as everybody helped to make it enjoyable and hassle free. The balcony and views were amazing and the apartment had everything we needed. We will be back.

Great location and views

Phyllis, Banknock, May 2016

Great location and views and the apartment was beautifully furnished. It was very secure and had everything you need for a self catering holiday, and more. I booked the airport transfers through you and thought the cost was very reasonable. Both transfers were on time and the drivers were very courteous. The local management team was extremely helpful and informative and the booking process was very easy and professional. All enquiries were replied to promptly and instructions easy to understand.

We have returned to this apartment 4 times

Lesley, Arbroath, December 2015

We have returned to this apartment 4 times as we enjoy it so much. We always use your transfers and they are always on time waiting at the airport and we have never had to worry about them turning up for the return transfer. I have used Algarve Getaways 5 times and cannot fault the team, always excellent and helpful.

Sunny balcony with beautiful views

Margaret Ann, Coatbridge, October 2015

A wonderful apartment, catered for every need. Sun on the balcony with beautiful views and very peaceful. The complex was quiet, safe and clean with a lovely pool area. Very efficient booking service, prompt reply to any questions. I can highly recommend Algarve Getaways and will definitely book with you again.

No more hotels for us

Alex & Carol, N. Yorkshire, June 2015

One of the best holidays we have ever had! We were made to feel very confident when booking. The apartment was fantastic and even better than we expected. It was spotless and we were happy with our laundry change. Daniel met us and explained everything to us. The transfers were excellent and everything went smoothly. No more hotels for us, apartments every time.

Exceeded all our expectations

Debra, Brentford, August 2014

This apartment exceeded our expectations and was even lovelier than the photos on the website. The view from the terrace was just amazing. This was one of the best equipped apartments we've ever stayed in and we've stayed in many! Everything was squeaky clean and we even had a change of towels mid-week. The gardens were well maintained and there was a lovely pool area with plenty of sunbeds. We arrived at the apartment at 10.30 am and Daniel did his very best to make sure we had access to the apartment as soon as it was cleaned. We just had time to do a bit of grocery shopping and a quick lunch and were in the apartment at 12 noon.

Fantastic, peaceful place to relax and sunbathe

Eliot, Sunderland, August 2014

Beautifully equipped and furnished. Excellent location. Excellent complex. Beautiful pool area. Great balcony to rear of apartment, with superb views out to sea. Fantastic, peaceful place to relax and sunbathe on an afternoon. Extremely prompt and helpful responses to all booking queries. Would definitely use Algarve Getaways again and recommend to others.

Everything we could possibly need in self-catering

Sara, Bristol, July 2014

Having such a good holiday booked through Algarve Getaways in 2013 we just had to return this year. The apartment was as we remembered, so well presented with everything we would possibly need in self catering. Organising transfers through Algarve Getaways ensured travel to and from the airport was reliable and stress free, and having a representative to meet us on arrival at the apartment was much appreciated.

5-Star Apartment

Christina, Cheshire, September 2013

We stayed in apartment ORIA. The apartment was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was fully equipped with all mod cons which made our stay even more comfortable. The apartment exceeded our expectations in terms of size, location and the view. The south facing balcony was superb for afternoon sun bathing and we enjoyed our evening meals each night on the wonderful dining table - with candles supplied by the owner. This apartment along with the service from Algarve Getaways and the transfer company all matched if not exceeded the service and quality we usually get when staying in 5-star hotels. We would strongly recommend this apartment to others!

Another first class holiday at Encosta da Orada

Paul, Belfast, N. Ireland, August 2013

We had another first class holiday at the Encosta da Orada complex and were well looked after by the Algarve Getaways team. The apartment was in excellent order, well maintained and exactly as described in the Algarve Getaways website. It was nice to have two balconies and the option of sun or shade all day. We would highly recommend the apartment and Algarve Getaways. Encosta da Orada is a short walk to the Old Town, where there is a good range of restaurants. While a bit hilly, for a person of average mobility it shouldn't be a problem. It is however possible to book a taxi if walking isn't an option.

Once Again A Brilliant Holiday

Lindsey, Airdrie, Scotland, September 2012

The apartment was excellent & had everything you could ask for, a real home from home. The pool was great & the complex really secure. We were totally satisfied with the transfer service & the Algarve Getaways staff were lovely. Once again we had a brilliant holiday and look forward to our next one.

Superb views

Cynthia, Sheffield, August 2011

Lovely apartment well equipped with a really comfy bed, spotless and in a good position. Welcome pack much appreciated. Terraces were superb, especially the fact that you could have sun/shade as you wished all day!! Good setting, lovely grounds, very well maintained. Excellent pool and tennis court. Superb views from the terrace where we enjoyed a glass of wine or three!! Very good security. This was our first journey to the Algarve and hopefully will not be our last! We would definitely use Algarve Getaways again.

Easily the nicest apartment we have ever stayed in

Evelyn & Andrew, Johnstone, October 2010

We were stunned to find the apartment so spacious, beautifully furnished and luxurious. Everything from soft furnishings to kitchen equipment was sparkling clean and a pleasure to use. We were extremely impressed with the efficiency of the Algarve Getaways team, they provided a welcome pack of drinks and snacks which we were not expecting but which was much appreciated after a fairly long and tiring journey. The quality of service and the very high standard of the accommodation was so good that it ensured we were very comfortable and felt secure in our apartment. It was a pleasure to enjoy the facilities and wonderful views when we were not out and about in what we consider to be an excellent resort in a very pleasant area.

Absolutely fantastic apartment

Deirdre, Dublin, Ireland, September 2010

Absolutely fantastic apartment. This was my first attempt at booking my holiday independently and I cannot see myself going back to the traditional package holiday ever again. The standard of accommodation and professionalism of Algarve Getaways mean that I would highly recommend the company to anyone thinking of holidaying in the Algarve. Many thanks!!

Our expectations were fully met

Hans, Denmark, July 2010

We were fully satisfied with this apartment and have already made reservations for next summer. The descriptions of this property are exact down to the last point and it was clean and well-maintained. Often in the evenings we strolled down to the center of Albufeira (approx. 700 m.) and enjoyed a meal at one of the various restaurants. A last glass of wine on the quiet terrace overlooking the ocean is a fantastic way to make yourself ready for the next day in the Algarve

The place was unbelievable, the location perfect

Adam, Rhode Island, USA, August 2009

The place was unbelievable, the location was perfect, the service from Howard was fantastic, especially his meeting us there, opening the place up, and giving us a highlight of the area. 10/10, everything was perfect.

Definitely a 5 star

Vita, London, June 2009

The complex was definitely a 5 star with two wonderful pools, gardens and tennis court. The communal areas were kept spotless at all times. The actual apartment had everything we needed and so much more, decorated and equipped to a very high standard. Not to mention the two balconies - one with a view to the pool - great place to have your breakfast, and another with a breathtaking view out to the ocean and villas - perfect for soaking up the afternoon sunshine. Great service, facilities exceeding expectations and holiday without a hitch. Thank you so much for a great holiday!!!

The apartment was really special

Martin & Pauline, Romsey, October 2008

The apartment was of a higher quality than we expected with all our needs catered for. The cleanliness of the apartment was to a high standard (the cleaning products we usually take on holiday were unused). It was a real pleasure to breakfast on the rear balcony overlooking the pool followed by a leisurely sunbathe on front balcony overlooking the marina with a restful nightcap taking in the evening lights. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and can say the apartment was really special. When we book our next holiday in Portugal we will most definitely be looking at Algarve Getaways website first.
