Stayed in the Rosamar 1 complex of apartments in Amerca de pera at the end of May beginning of June. came on a package holiday with Thomas Cook/Panaroma/Sunway holidays from Ireland West Airport knock. Amerca de Pera is about 40 minutes from the Faro airport.
Our initial view was "oh god!". there was someone cooking next door and the smell wasn't great but this disappeared. the apartment is dated but very clean. There is lots of hot water but it obviously doesn't last forever; as 2 of us were in the apartment we left showers about 10 mins beftween the first and second shower. our towels were only changed once during the week but our bed was made each day; they should change the towels more often. beds were comfortable and there is a large fridge/freezer which is great. integrated cooking area in the living room but we ate out and only ever had breakfast in the apartment. TV has some english channels on it and there is a balcony which was handy for drying our non-changed towels!
the Rosamar II (2) is next door but is no way affiliated with the Rosamar I. it used to be previously. there is no pool that we saw with the Rosamar I. it seems to be only associated with the Rosamar II.
At night there are seagulls screeching so the best thing to do is pull down the shutters. beds are a little on the hard side but thats cos i am used of a soft bed.
location: the Rosamar is only 50 metres from the beach and is the same from the supermarket. everything is on the door step. you are a 5-10 min walk from the old town but its in an ideal location. beware of Amerca de pera as they currently have all the streets dug up so anyone who's mobility isn't great it might not be the best place for getting about. i think they should have the work done by this year. the beach is huge; i would think its 4-5km's in length and goes to the nearby town of Gale. the weather was gorgeous when we were there. the first 2 days we got sun beds at Rocha Palha restaurant which is great for getting cocktails and food. it is right on the beach.
the beach itself is in great condition; no litter and plenty of sunbeds. there weren't many tourists around when we were there; must be a quiet time of the year.
Out and about: there are some nice restaurants with all specialising in seafood. there is an italian restaurant near the Rosamar; out the door and to the right for 40 metres. we ate there twice and can't recommend it highly enough. we also ate at Rocha Palha which is right on the sea front. i can't remember off hand but we ate in 2/3 other places in the old town. nightlife wise there is Havana's and the Cocktail bar. there wasn't much happening besides. its not a resort for the younger people. we had a relaxing holiday so didn't do any of the sightseeing or adventure activities but there seems to be loads to do especially for families.
