Timber tipis and clay clad walls

A travel blog entry by roundaboutus


... burgeoning veg plot and a shady stable for their Shire 'Ben' and Irish tinker pony. Olaf has taught himself to make tipis and two 8m tipis stand proudly on the land. Their sun bleached canvas gentle tugging with the breeze which thankfully skims across the slopes. the swimming lake is blissful! The dark 6m depths are home to carnivorous fish, frogs and dragonflies, edged with dense bull rushes. We drove away from the wind whipped coast yesterday so we've been ...

Praia da Falesia and Faro

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon


... nighttime activities consisted of comparing Portuguese lagers and watching penalties, you can tell the Dutch have been practicing, they even have a special keeper only for shoot-outs. Hats off to Costa Rica in any case. Today we might quickly check out Faro, but our next stop is now inland. Evora, another unesco heritage place, awaits us in the ...

Lagoa & Albufeira

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon


... are going up slightly. The highlight of today was undeniably the best beach I've seen so far in Portugal, Carvalho beach near Lagoa, between Lagos and Albufeira. Some places in Lagoa look like a Portuguese version of Beverly Hills, but it has really sweet collection of cove beaches. See pictures below. Tomorrow, we may or may not make it to ...

Tourists of the south coast

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon


... The Portuguese use a lot of coriander in their cuisine, very enjoyable. On the way back, it seemed to me the city was getting ready to welcome hordes of British youths ready to take on the night, as dancing bars and apartments in town were slowly filling up with cockney accents. Lovely. Tomorrow, the challenge will be to find a place to view the game with a not too extensive German crowd, as both victory or defeat could prove either dangerous or ...

Lagos, Portugal.

A travel blog entry by hollyguds


Day 1- Arrive into Lagos on the 13th by bus (4.5 hours). When we arrive at the Rising cock we realise it's 99% Australians, even the people that work there. Staying in an 11 bed dorm, all the other girls are from Sydney. Get ready and go see Marty at his work, the green room. We go to the tavern to watch the World Cup, three ...

    Fantasic Hotel


    If you are looking for a relaxing holiday the Stella Maris is the place for you! The hotel deserves its four star rating as it is beautiful. The hotel was spotlessly clean & the staff very friendly. On arrival we could not believe the size of our room & balcony they were huge!

    Ausgezeichnetes Hotel


    Wir buchten sehr spät über first und kamen im Stella Maris unter. Dieses Hotel ist das beste, in dem ich jemals war.

    Unsere Unterkunft wurde uns erst bei Anreise offenbart, und wir waren so froh, dass wir hier gelandet sind.

    Das Zimmer, das Personal, die Bar, der Pool und die lokalen Zusatzleistungen waren super.

    Excellent hotel


    we booked a late deal on first and ended up at the stella maris. this is the best hotel i've stayed in.

    we had allocation on arrival and were so glad to be placed here.

    the room, staff, bar, pool and local ammenities were great.

    Really lovely 2-bed apartment and fantastic staff


    We booked this as a last-minute replacement to a rejected reservation elsewhere, and I'm really glad we were bumped from the first one!

    Lovely apartments


    Booked a short break (four days) in Portugal just to remind myself what the sun felt like. Chose Stella Martis Aparthotel due to pictures seen on the internet. I was not disappointed at all. The hotel is spotless. The cleanliness is fantastic. Cleaners came in every day and left the room looking fresh. Balcony lovely. Booked on a bed and breakfast basis. Breakfast was nice but it got a little boring having same everyday and it helped me realise that I am not an All Inclusive type of person. Staff are helpful when required but otherwise unobtrusive. About 800 metres from the beach and on the way you pass a little bar called Neptuno which does the most fantastic grilled chicken salad going. Local beer is 1 euro and beers like Heineken/Carlsbert 2.50 euros. Not an expensive night out. Went into Albufeira which is very touristy and saw the Old Town. Good bar called Bank which has live music at times and another bar/eatery called Buddies. I would recommend this hotel and area to anyway.

    A pleasant surprise


    We had originally booked a 7 day stay at the Balaia Atlantico through Hotelopia but they overbooked (I assume) and sent us over to the Stella Maris for the first 2 nights of our stay. This was a bit of a bother as we were travellng with a 2-year-old and wanted to minimise packing/unpacking. Still, the Stella was lovely, nicely furnished and nicely landscaped. We didn't try the pool and only used the restaurant once for breakfast.

    Worth visting


    We have just stayed in a studio for a week and found the place very clean, linen and towels changed frequently without asking.

    Well equipped and great value for money

    Several restaurants within easy walking distance and well stocked supermarkets should you want to cook and eat in

    For breakfast we usually had fresh coffee and marvellous patisseries from the cafe 200m up the road

    Recommend the Stella Maris


    We have just come back from a week's stay at the Stella Maris, which was very enjoyable and relaxing. Having read the only review before going and reading it again after returning, I find it a little harsh. Perhaps their experience was because it was newly opened, but we found it a different place.

    Good choice


    a very good choice, great value for money.

    close to a fabulous beach,

    access to nightife and more varied restaurants requires a short taxi journey.

    Wouldn't recommend


    We booked our flights from Bournemouth to Faro on thomsonfly[--], and the Alpinus 4* self-catering apartments, Albufeira through alpharooms[--], and a transfer from Faro to Albufeira on low-cost-transfer[--].
