We stayed 7 nights in The Jardin Apartments and I have to say the apartment is great.26th floor gives you a great view of the beach and sea. It's a 3 min walk to the beach. Manuel apartment has everything you will need, kitchen, towels,sun umbrella for the beach , wifi ,washing machine and so on. The apartment is positioned at the top of Praia de Rocha strip and you are on the strip in less than 5 mins but you don't hear any of the nite life in the apartment if you don't want to go out. Dona Lena who you will meet to get the key is a lovely funny and full of life lady. All in all it's a great place to stay and I would recommend the apartment to everyone going to Praia de Rocha.
PARFAIT! Vue magnifique sur la plage, appartement très propre. Mr Manuel et Dona Helena ont été exeptionnels en nous permettant d'arriver un peu plus tôt mais aussi en nous offrant des petites attentions pratiques et charmantes. Toujours très disponibles pour nous, nous vous recommandons vivement cet appartement!!! 5*****
This was the last stop of our Iberia Peninsula tour. I loved the place. The apartment is on the last floor (26th) and the view is...WOW! We made Manuel's and dona Lena's life impossible as we came very late due to some logistical issues with our car but they were adorable. I fell in love with Dona Lena who is a wonderful person that you will understand even when she uses body language :)
Though Manuel is not physically there, he is quite responsive to all the questions. The beach was stunning. We also rented motorcycles to visit some of the south cities of Algarve. Also, we went to Aqualand, a place not to miss for the lovers of toboggans and crazy experiences. If you're going, don't miss the Bonzai, but be prepared as you'll be having a rush of adrenaline :p
Internet is a bit poor as we were 4 people so 4 devices being connected to one server. Would definitely recommend the place and go back there.
We spent a great week in Algarve in Manuel's flat. The photos fit perfectly reality. Everything was tidy and clean when we got there. The only drawback was that the net plug wasn t working in our computers. The balcony and the view from the 26th floor (the highest of the building) is absolutely breathtaking and we never got tired of the beautiful color of the ocean. The view from the apartment is definitely a plus! Also there is everything you need in the apartment like towels, umbrellas to go to the beach.
Thank you again Manuel and Olga!
My friend and I stayed at Algarve holiday studio for 6 days in early April, 2013. Manuel was an excellent host and was quick to accommodate our needs and respond to any queries I had regarding things to do in the Portimao and surrounding area. Algarve holiday studio was immaculate from top to bottom and it provided everything that we needed for the week. I would highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a lovely spot to explore the Algarve with an incredible view and a 2-minute walk to Praia da Rocha!
Thank you so very much Manuel for making our trip one to remember!
We totally enjoyed our stay in Praia da Rocha at Manuel’s studio. Manuel and his sister-in-law ensured we had everything we needed and more for our week long stay. The studio was freshly prepared, light and airy, and the kitchen was fully equipped. The location was ideal for accessing the beach which we thoroughly enjoyed by taking long walks on the clean sandy beaches among the beautiful rocky cliffs. The studio’s balcony provided breathtaking views of the ocean and rock formations with fantastic sunrises and sunsets. We highly recommend Manuel’s studio for anyone who wants to enjoy Praia da Rocha and Portimao.
The Appartment was very clean & comfortable, Manuel as well as the housekeeper Donna Lena were absolutely gorgeous and wellcoming :)
It has an incredible view on the ocean and you can hear the see by night.
I would go there everytimes again and especialy in sep/oct, because in lowseasons everything is quiet (its a big building with a lot of appartments, so i dont know how it is on high season but youre at the top level so probably the best spot at the whole building)
we had loved the time at jardins da rochas sweetest appartment and maby we´ll come back sometimes
Lovely, clean, well-equipped studio very near the beach and main strip. Manuel was very helpful. Highly recommended.
Very clean and beautiful apartment with an amazing view of the beach. Definitely a wonderful place to spend a holiday. Only a three minute walk to the beach, filled with specular sights. Many great restaurants and shops close by. Manuel was very friendly and helpful, allowed our holiday to be relaxing and enjoyable. He responded quickly and gave plenty of advice on things to do while in Portugal. I would definitely recommended this apartment to stay in, if you want to have an amazing holiday.
What an AMAZING adventure we had! I loved being in Manuels condo, WOW what an AWESOME view!! We had an absolute blast, Manuel & Dona Lena were extremely gracious hosts AND the condo was quite clean & comfortable! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
