Stayed here mid October in two 1 bed apartments for 2 nights at the bargain rate of £24 per night per apartment and we just loved it.
Reception staff were amazing and could not be more helpful and will organise all sorts from airport transfers (Faro is about 45 miles and less than 1 hr), car and scooter rentals, water sports and so on.
The grounds are spacious with outdoor pool and an attractive modern cafe/bar complete with big comfy chairs and and full blown espresso machine.
The apartment rooms were sparsely but adequately furnished and of a good size including the bathroom which being honest was a little dated but perfectly adequate. Did not use the kitchen other than the fridge but it looked fit for purpose. Decent size TV with free English cable channels plus Europsort. The downstairs room had a large patio and the upstairs a decent size balcony. Modern quiet effective air con was little used due to highly effective double glazed windows and shutters. Rooms cleaned and towels/linen changed twice per week. One downside was the noise from adjoining apartments from the chairs being dragged across the stone floors which is a shame as this seems an easy fix.
The delightful old town is a 15-20 minute downhill walk or a 4-5 Euro taxi, or take the free shuttle bus which runs 3-4 times per day to the town and the local beech which looked delightful.
Free spacious car parking right outside the apartment.
There is an excellent grocery store right opposite the entrance selling all the basics including fresh bread and fruit plus a small deli for cheese and meets, not to forget a range of wines and beers. A larger Intermarche a little further afoot.
Lagos is at the end of train line from Faro adding another travel option.
Reminder- The A22 is probably an electronic toll road by now.
