Stayed at Forte do Vale for 2 weeks at the end of June. Fab time in a very comfortable apartment. It lacked a few kitchen utensils but we managed to improvise. Would rather have had an oven than a dishwasher and instructions for the combination microwave would have been handy. Although if we had had instructions then we would have needed bowls, trays to cook in. Slept comfortably in the beds and on sofa bed. Did the morning rush for sun loungers but only because we wanted to be near the toddler pool with a small child. Only a few people put towels on chairs and didn't turn up for hours. Most were families that stayed by the pool for the day. Felt a little guilty leaving them on whilst we went for lunch and would have been a little annoyed if they had been removed having been there since 9am (which was the time my daughter wanted to be in the pool!) Can imagine it would be very busy in August! Bought a parasol for €5 from supermarket to avoid fight for very limited number of provided ones by the pool.
Perfect location for old and new town. Used the small supermarket a couple of times but mainly walked to large Continente supermarket for fab prices and quality.
Only issue was the safe in the room. I found it rather expensive. Cost me €35 for the 2 weeks and a €35 deposit. I had arranged to get my deposit back the day before we left so that I didn't have a purse full of Euros to go home with. Our flight was early the next morning and wanted it to spend on our final evening out! Was asked to come back in the morning which I told them was impossible but I had to be fairly forceful and wait until 6pm for the money. Shame. It spoilt the end of the holiday a little. The staff were generally very helpful.
