This is a great resort. Accomadation is first class always and the grounds are beautiful. Having such good security makes one feel safe and that ones children are safe. We are always sad to leave. Each villa has its own pool so you dont have to always go up to the big main pool for a swim and cool down.

Room Tip: Go for the Villas that boarder the Mont Da Quinta resort as they are quieter and the pools are priva...

Dear guest,

Pleased to know how much you enjoy Fairways and thank you for sharing your experience with Trip Advisor community.
It is understandable your sadness to leave the resort after each stay, but look at it from the positive side, there is always a seat available on the next flight to Faro!

Looking forward to have you back soon.

Delighted to see that the kitchen equipment has been upgraded well done! Think that the 10 pm embargo on noise is a bit too early....there are a lot of adults on holiday....I think 11 would be more appropriate. There seems to be a genuine effort to really welcome guests and look after them so well done to all Fairways staff for that!

We have just returned home having spent three weeks in our 'home from home' at FSF. We purchased our weeks 10 years ago and have never regretted the decision we made. Fairways is a wonderful holiday destination for all age groups. The staff are exceptionally welcoming and greet us as old friends from the moment we arrive. Facilities are second to none and the villas are large and well appointed with a choice of a pool or a jacuzzi. The atmosphere in the clubhouse was really good this year with excellent affordable food, and entertainment a couple of nights a week. I accept comments from some members that some of the villas and indeed the clubhouse are in need of refurbishment, however, this in no way diminishes our enjoyment of the place. Hopefully these issues are in the process of being addressed. Jorge and Rui, our new management team are doing a wonderful job and I know that they will ensure that Fairways goes from strength to strength in the years to come.

Having holidayed in Fairways over the past 5 years at my brothers Timeshare we decided to take ownership of it when he put it on the market. We really enjoy the welcoming atmosphere at Fairways and the beautiful beach and surrounding area. I would agree with many comments that the apartments are a little 'tired' and need upgrading but am glad to see that that is in train. Always find the staff welcoming and helpful. We look forward to spending many good holidays at Fairways for many years to come.

We are regular stayers at the resort and this year here has been some good mprovements. The restaurant offering good value deals on meals is welcome and providing a good buzz with good local live music. The villas are as fab as ever but now with broadband wi fi. The rest of the facilities brilliant as always but nowadays a little cheaper so increasingly good value for money. Take advantage, book in!

We have been coming to four seasons since now grown up children were babies, and it is always a truly relaxing holiday! We were pleased to see this year an large improvement in the atmosphere in the bar at the clubhouse, which has in recent years been lacking, and feel this is largely down to the new staff!
Long serving lifeguard Antonio as always was charming, doing whatever he could to make people at the clubhouse feel comfortable.
The reception staff are still hugely efficient and charming, and made us feel welcome throughout our trip. As soon as we had any issues with the villa maintenance was sent round immediately to deal with it.
There are only two gripes I have, despite using the gym everyday for 10 days the new gym manager failed to acknowledge us, while in the past I have always been spoken to and made to feel welcome by whoever has been managing the gym
Secondly, as we have been coming out for so many years we have made a number of friends who also have time shares in fairways, and feel that we have over the years missed out on a number of refurbishments, while other villas have new bathroom, BBQs, garden furniture and kitchens ours doesn't seem to have changed much since we bought it with the exception of new upholstery and curtains.

Dear Member,

Thank you very much for your nice review, and I am very pleased to know how much you enjoy Fairways and the service provided by our team.

Regret to hear about your experience at the gym, we do have a new personal trainer since last year and I have been receiving very good feedback, nevertheless will follow up on this.
With regards to the refurbishment program, I am pleased to inform you that we will restart with the refurbishment program again later in the year. However we have been doing a maintenance program in all the vilas with particularly attention to those that are not refurbished yet. I will appreciate if you can drop me an e-mail (general.manager@fourseasonsfairways.com) with your villa number and I will have a look at it.

We all look forward to welcome you back.

Kindest regards
