It was with some trepidation we arrived late-ish (9), at Cantiho do Mar. We knew reception would be closed and we were a bit nervous that we would get into our apartment. We rang the number provided and gained access, we were told to go downstairs. I was not impressed, thinking we were being sent to the basement. Entering ths... More

We had a two bedroom apartment for 5 of us. It was comfortable, clean and so peaceful. It's only a 10 minute walk from there to get... More

Great food friendly staff well run family restaurant prices are very good overall excellent will definitely be going back. Turkey in mushroom sauce is to die for.the special menu is a must 9.50 for a 4 course meal with a pint of beer well worth it.

We stayed here with our 3 young children(aged 6,4,2) and LOVED it! We got a HUGE apartment&the bedrooms were laid out in such a way that hubby&i still had full use of kitchen/living areas&balconies even when kids were asleep. Furniture&utensils were basic but we had everything we needed and had a cleaning service/towel change every day which we weren't expecting!!... More
