    Plagued with barking of stray dog packs . Spoilt relaxation. Because we arrived by plane and taxi, some tea making products would have been very welcome.

    Very comfortable apartments and beds . Everything nice and clean.

    Arrived on Sunday at 6.30pm and the reception was closed and there was no one around to ask. There was a letter left for us and a phone to ring but it took until 7.30 to be shown to our apartment by one of the evening staff who was late coming on duty. Seemingly the reception closes at 6pm on a Sunday and the night staff don't come on duty until 7pm. We were not aware of this.

    After the initial delay in being shown to our apartment the rest of the experience was A1. The apartment complex and area is quiet, relaxing and comfortable and very user friendly. Also spotlessly clean with housekeeping every day. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything that is needed.

    It would have been better if some Dishwasher tablet and Washing Machine soap was made available. To have been charged five euros (!!) for a few of each was a bit of a let down.

    Location was ideal for the family. Excellent Apartment and extremely clean and tidy. Very quite and stunning views.

    Reception staff need training in customer service. Didn't know much about the area, everything seemed a hassle for them, unhelpful in sorting out problems. Frequently closed with a sign up saying "back in 15 mins" which they never were. 50 minutes wait for someone to come and check us in at 9pm with 3 small kids was inexcusably long. No late check out -10am not ideal in heat with late evening flight.

    Very well kept and spacious apartment, beautiful surroundings and spotless pool. Great parking. Washing machine and dishwasher a welcome bonus. Nice and quiet.

    Even we spent two weeks there, I was charged for one broken glass, I announced myself. I find that for properties of quiet high level this approach is strange.

    - The appartement was really nice with all that you can need , clean - good location but need a car - swimming pool, fitness and play ground, all you need for kids of different ages.

    1. Restaurant closed, though time of year maybe it was to be expected. 2. No shops on site and nearby shop to far to walk to.

    1. Receptionist and staff very helpful. 2. Peaceful. 3. Nice property, clean and any faults dealt with immediately. 4. lovely surroundings and wonderful sea views and foliage from the balcony. 5. Reasonable price. 6. Free WiFi and good appliances provided. 7. Safety security box no charge as it was provided in the property.

    We stayed in duplex two bedroom apartment which was big and commodious. Balcony with superb view, enjoying to have our breakfast there, kitchen with all necessity, wide living room with dining area, and two cosy bedroom in lower floor with garden approach all spotlessly clean. Very friendly staff and restaurant with delicious menu and wine list on site. Fast wifi. Beautiful scenery around, but having a car is a must. We will definitely back again!

    Poor on site facilities for those without a vehicle. Not even a vending machine around the pool - a bar at the pool or select mini market is needed. Also up keep & presentation of pool area a bit hit & miss - but everywhere else immaculate.

    The access to the children's play park is actually only for members of the tennis club- and it was a little worse for wear. But our private pool made up for this.

    Too late check-in (15h) and too early check-out (10h). The restaurant closes on Sundays, even on August, which I found unbelievable (there's no other restaurants at a comfortable walking distance). The TV system is primitive, still based on satellite reception instead of cable. We needed 4 remote commands (!!) to manage everything, without a single manual on sight... Portuguese channels - only the 4 basic ones (and with a poor reception). The TV itself was fairly big but a bit outdated, with no USB ports and with only one HDMI port (already in use by the satellite system). The swimming pool has only 1.6m in its maximum depth, which is not enough. No diving... Also no bar service in the pool.

    The view from our house was magnificent: we could see the sea, the forest and a very well cared for garden. At night - absolute peace and quiet... The house had great facilities: spacious and comfortable living room, modern dining room, comfortable showers, good kitchen, good AC. The WC from the swimming pool are wonderful. Good parking space, right in front of each house.

    Over the past few years, I have used both the single and two bed room apartments. They are well maintained and equipped in a quiet out of the way development about 3 km or so from the resort of Carvoeiro. You need a car as the properties are some way from the shops and the beaches - Carvoeiro and Caneiros are both about 3km distant. The support staff (reception, grounds and maintenance) are excellent and I have always had delightful, relaxing winter holidays at Presa da Moura. I particularly enjoy the large balconies - all overlooking a valley with views towards the sea.

    This isn't really something that bothered me but you do need a car, not the kind of place where you can stroll out to restaurants, bars etc.

    Very comfortable split level apartment extremely well furnished. Bedrooms on lower level both en suite. The kitchen had all the equipment you would have at home so if eating in cooking would be no problem. The balcony had a fabulous view of the gardens and valley below great to watch the sunset. One of the nicest things was how quiet the apartment was no road noise or intrusive music. All in all would highly recommend.

    Jacuzzi and steam room out of order while we were there. As a non-swimmer, I was very disappointed with this, especially since the pool was really only suitable for swimmers due to depth . Kitchen wall presses way too high to access even bottom shelf. Provision of a little set of steps would help. Also, no empty press for food storage.

    The spaciousness of the apartment, the attention to detail in the beautiful gardens and the cleanliness of the entire complex , internally and externally. Air con and WIFI perfect also. Beds really comfortable, meal in on-site restaurant was delicious.

    This development is a long way from the town which is OK if all you want to do is laze about in the sun. A car is essential if you want to get out to a wider range of restaurants and facilities. Single beds unnecessarily narrow given the spacious bedrooms
