Stayed here for 3 days for a family wedding. Probably would not normally have picked this but it was recommended and was close to the wedding hotel and we got a good deal online. Because we were flying in to Faro, I phoned beforehand to arrange an airport pick up. This was confirmed within minutes by email and on the day went smoothly with our courteous and efficient driver making sure we got to our allocated apartment. Although a bit out of the way (we did ask for a quiet room), the apartment far exceeded our expectations having everything we needed and more (including washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher). It would be great for a longer stay but because of commitments we didn't see too much of the room.
After all this positivity just a few quibbles. They don't appear to designate non-smoking apartments and non-smokers like ourselves are very sensitive to a smoker being a previous occupant. We also had a problem with an ant infestation the first morning but this was quickly dealt with by the housekeeping staff.
All in all a very good experience but if returning I would try to get an apartment closer to the restaurant and supermarket as long as the smoking issue is tackled.
