Had an absolutely gorgeous relaxing time (again!). Managers Miguel & Zezhina are amazing hosts. Love his dry sense of humor - my kind. The apartment group is hi up, facing west, with stunning views over the small village. Loads of space in the apartments. Even though it was v busy - it felt like we were the only guests. 5th...

I just love this village. Let's perfect for family holidays as you have everything to hand, the sea, beach, restaurants, friendly people, fantastic views.... Staying with Miguel and his family is a pleasure. Over the years his wacky sense of humour has entertained our family and he has always helped us when we have had a crisis. We go back...

These apartments are perched upon a hill so if you're the type who struggles with walking hills then they are maybe not for you. That said, Burgau is pretty much built on a hillside so you would be looking there anyway. Should it not bother you then I can thoroughly recommend these beautifully crafted and surprising cool rooms for a...

What else can I say?? The best views in Burgau, spacious and comfortable accommodation. We had a studio which was more than enough space for the two of us. Nicely furnished (excellent bed) and well equipped. The pool area is spectacular enjoying the views across the bay and gorgeous beach. Miguel and crew made us feel very welcome. Thank you...

Another great stay in these spotless, comfortable, and very spacious apartments. As usual we had one of the two story 3 bedroom villa apartments. Miguel & ZiZi are lovely hosts who go out of their way to help and make sure everything is OK. The Navegador restaurant is one of our favourite places to eat, we are gradually working our...

Just returned from a weeks stay here and it has inspired me to write my first review on tripadvisor! The apartment was incredibly spacious and had everything you need for a self-catering holiday. The views from the balcony were fantastic and waking up to the sound of the sea every morning was just lovely. The pool and restaurant were great...

Very clean, well furnished, good beds, well equipped kitchen. Good Wi-Fi. So, everything really fine but I would say it's a little bit too expensive - 115 EUR per night for 2 adults. (one kid free sleeping with us). There are more Brits in Burgau than Poles in London, so, probably that's the reason and 115EUR doesn't sound so much...

Spent 5 days and could spend more. Good size of apartment with separate bedroom and kitchen. Large bathroom. Good size of the balcony overlooking the ocean and village. Basic equipment in the kitchen. Nice pool area , access by the restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise that the apartment was cleaned and towels changed after 3 nights. No washing machine...

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment early June this year. It was the most fabulous location! Burgau is an unspoiled little town with apartments, restaurants, cafe and houses leading down to the beautiful beach. Burgau has whatever you need for amenities, restaurants and groceries, however for shopping you need to venture into Lagos...

We stayed in a two-person apartment at Os Descobrimentos with a great view of Burgau and its beach. It was our first visit to Burgau, we were enchanted by this cozy, quiet village which has avoided excessive growth and modernization. The apartment was comfortably furnished, lots of beautiful dark wood armoires and chests. While talking to fellow travelers at dinner,...
