Have stayed here several times in the 1 bedroom villa but never in the summer season. The weather was in the high 80s and the lack of air conditioning meant that the evenings were very humid. However this is such a great place to stay that this wouldnt put us off. The 34 apartments are set in the hillside so that they feel quite private and the complex is very quiet. The small supermarket has just reopened after being closed for a year so all the basics are now available. There are friendly new owners of the bar/restaurant with good value meals, a meal for 2 ( 1 gammon, 1 ribs) with drinks came to less than 25 euros. The pool area is always quiet with plenty of sunloungers available . The villas although needing a coat of paint and updating are very well equipped, the only thing missing is a hair dryer. Villamoura and its many attractions is a 5 minute drive away. There is a bus stop right outside or reception will book a taxi for you if you dont have a car. Falesia beach in high season is busy with expensive sun loungers but if you buy a sun umbrella for 12 euros from the supermarket in villamoura you can find a quiet spot and pitch it on the beach like the locals do. The villas also have its own dog a small papillon/miniature collie cross who was abandoned but is now looked after by the staff, he is wary at first but will soon eat ham and bacon from you!.
