We booked accommodation at Aparthotel Sagres Time for the February half-term break 2013 based on Tripadvisor reviews - and were not at all disappointed. We arrived later than expected (our flight was delayed and we were hiring a car from Faro airport). Manuel, on reception duty that night, called to check that we were o.k. and on the way. We arrived after midnight and were warmly greeted and taken to an enormous ground floor balcony. The apartment was airy, spacious, clean and very new. We had two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a large living area and kitchen. We had a patio small garden with a palm tree to the rear (where the sun rose in the morning) and the pool to the front. Due to the time of year we hardly saw a soul - Sagres was very quiet - and there was hardly ever any traffic going past the garden. The kitchen had a washing machine, fridge, electric 'flat' toaster, cooker, utensils, crockery, coffee maker, dishwasher, bin etc. Dishwasher tablets are available free of charge from reception and cleaners also come each day. There is a supermarket just up the road (if there is a bike available you can borrow it) and a larger Intermarche around 5 minutes driver away. We had two televisions with access to around 20 channels which was useful on a rainy evening (it was February afterall!). The reception staff were exceptionally helpful with advice about where to eat, what to do, where to travel, which beaches to see - and were also interested to hear about our experiences and where we had been as they are keen to ensure that they meet the needs of guests as far as possible. You can buy beer and soft drinks from the on-site fridge and there is a limited range of books available, mainly in English and German. There is underground parking but we parked outside as there were plenty of spaces available. This was a great base for visiting the Algarve and is highly recommended.
