What a wonderful apartment. My son and I stayed here from the 15th until the 22nd of September. We love your beautiful apartment, felt very much at home and enjoyed the location, the weather and the facilities. Also the little touches - the sailing ship above the fire place and the acorns. Very homely.
You guys have been fantastic as usual, great service, great apartment, and great location, we will definitely recommend you to our friends and will be back with you again for sure. All the very best!
The Romeo and Juliet Apartment is a fantastic base for a holiday and is very well equipped and furnished. This is the second time we have stayed there and no doubt we will be returning.
we had a fantastic stay at your appartment Romeo and Juliet. Everything was great includung the attentivly housekeeping. The appartment has a nice decor with new bathrooms, very clean and appealing. The air condition in our bedroom was very quiet. Kitchen and living room is open and lightful.
The accommodation was a perfect size, modern, comfortable and was well kitted out for my 2 sons and myself. But for me it was all about location, the facilities nearby and being able to easily keep my 8 and 10yr old boys entertained. Having access to Xenia is a real treat. It has a great sized pool and plenty of loungers for me to chill and relax, a great pool bar area and the tennis courts. The beach at Julia's is an easy 10 minute stroll away, so a fantastic place to eat well and catch the evening sunset
We spent a long time on our holiday in September 2016 reviewing all of the Apartment properties by walking around and noting apartment numbers and talking to on-site residents in Dunas Douradas Our criteria was - which had the best views, which were in a likely quite location, how much sun did they get on the balcony and when. We narrowed it down to 3, with Romeo and Juliet being number 1. We were not disappointed, the décor, furnishings, cleanliness were top order. Even a giant Super King size bed was included. The Apartment could not be faulted and the service from Sandy Blue likewise. No noisy neighbours, all the TV channels you could wish for and recently refitted Kitchen and bathrooms. A First Class property and excellent Service from Sandy Blue ……well pleased.
I just wanted to thank you guys for all your hard work and flexibility with our recent holiday to Romeo and Juliet in vale de lobo. The villa was amazing , the welcome pack was so lovely . And we had the best holiday we have ever had. Everything was perfect. Thankyou for making our week so very easy from a logistic point of view. Thankyou guys. Amazing memories and we will not hesitate to use you guys again and will recommend you to anyone travelling that way.
We had a fabulous time in the algarve in August. Perfect unbroken sunshine and a great apartment on Dunas Doradas. The apartment was clean and the owners had provided essentials for our arrival...a lovely touch. Staff at Sandy Blue were available on the occasions we needed to contact, including weekends and early evening. Amy mainly dealt with our visit and was helpful friendly and very efficient. We plan to return and will look up Sandy Blue where we do.
Perfect apartment and venue for a family of two parents and 16 & 18 year olds. Apartment is very well appointed and comfortable and the teenagers particularly like the fact that it had wifi! Really close to a lovely large communal pool, big enough to swim proper lengths, with a nice cafe and small shop. Two well tended tennis courts next to the pool that were easy to book and lots of lovely restaurants and sightseeing trips within easy access if you have a hire car, but also nice beach restaurants you can walk to in 15 minutes.
We did have a great holiday thank you!
We had a lovely time with you and were impressed with everyone’s customer service efforts.
I will 100% come along to the office - after all these years will be nice to put a faces to names! We've really missed Portugal this year, the first time we haven't been in 6-7 years, and not though choice we just had lots of other things on! We can't wait to get back to the lovely big beaches, the friendly people, and the wonderful Julia's! :-) x
Back safely after a lovely trip in Portugal. The apartment worked well for us and we much appreciated the welcome hamper on arrival.
Thank you - the weather was fantastic, although it's made coming home to the cold and rain even harder! My parents were really impressed with the apartment - beautifully furnished and equipped. They would definitely stay there again. Thanks again for all your help. Kind regards, Lucy
We had a super time thank you. Thanks for all your assistance.
Many thanks for all your assistance with our holiday. The apartment worked out really well for us and we’ll be back next year!!
We had a lovely time at Romeo and Juliet apt in Donas Duradas arriving on 24th August 2013. We were delighted with the surprise welcome pack of food and wine on arrival as we were tired and hungry and didnt as yet know where any shops were so it was very pleasing to recieve same- very nice touch! The accomodation was beautiful and spotless and in a lovely location and we were delighted with the beautiful pool and restaurant on site with great service and reasonably priced food with very pleasant and helpful staff. The area was beautiful and very accessible to beautiful beach just a ten minute walk away. Really enjoyed the choice of nearby restaurants including beach reataurants with great atmosphere. We enjoyed the quiet area as we wanted a relaxing holiday which we got and yet the feel of holiday atmosphere. We would definitely like to go back there again. The only fault I personally had was I found the matress on bed a little uncomfortable as it was a little hard. overall I would definitely recommend this accomodation and hope to re visit you again soon. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday! Deirdre Newman
Thank you we had a lovely time in the apartment and found it to be in pristine condition. Your directions and instructions were easy to follow. The location and situation of the apartment is ideal set back yet close to the pool and Zenia bar and restaurant and also to the beach. It was a pleasure dealing with SandyBlue so thank you. Kind regards Maeve
We had a great time at the apartment and Dunas Duradas a whole. We have been to the Golden Triangle area on many occasions in the past and as always we weren’t disappointed. The apartment is in a great location, close to the pool and pool bar where the food and service is really goo and in walking distance to the beach for lunch at Julia’s or Izzy’s or a late afternoon ice cream (or beer) sat on the decking at Julia’s Many thanks Martin Martin Doyle
Anyway, the apartment was amazing and really put the icing on the cake for a truly fantastic holiday. We had brilliant weather and the kids loved the vast amount of pool action (as did we). The break couldnt have been better from all aspects and we came back totally recharged.Thankyou once again and hopefully we will return to the resort, if not next year the one after and would definately try and stop in your apartment again if possible. (It was luxury) Regards Steve, Kate and kids
