We are regular stayers at the resort and this year here has been some good mprovements. The restaurant offering good value deals on meals is welcome and providing a good buzz with good local live music. The villas are as fab as ever but now with broadband wi fi. The rest of the facilities brilliant as always but nowadays a little cheaper so increasingly good value for money. Take advantage, book in!

I would like to inform you that all our villas have now high speed internet connection, as well as in the clubhouse.

We all look forward to welcome you back.

We have been coming to four seasons since now grown up children were babies, and it is always a truly relaxing holiday! We were pleased to see this year an large improvement in the atmosphere in the bar at the clubhouse, which has in recent years been lacking, and feel this is largely down to the new staff!
Long serving lifeguard Antonio as always was charming, doing whatever he could to make people at the clubhouse feel comfortable.
The reception staff are still hugely efficient and charming, and made us feel welcome throughout our trip. As soon as we had any issues with the villa maintenance was sent round immediately to deal with it.
There are only two gripes I have, despite using the gym everyday for 10 days the new gym manager failed to acknowledge us, while in the past I have always been spoken to and made to feel welcome by whoever has been managing the gym
Secondly, as we have been coming out for so many years we have made a number of friends who also have time shares in fairways, and feel that we have over the years missed out on a number of refurbishments, while other villas have new bathroom, BBQs, garden furniture and kitchens ours doesn't seem to have changed much since we bought it with the exception of new upholstery and curtains.

Dear Member,

Thank you very much for your nice review, and I am very pleased to know how much you enjoy Fairways and the service provided by our team.

Regret to hear about your experience at the gym, we do have a new personal trainer since last year and I have been receiving very good feedback, nevertheless will follow up on this.
With regards to the refurbishment program, I am pleased to inform you that we will restart with the refurbishment program again later in the year. However we have been doing a maintenance program in all the vilas with particularly attention to those that are not refurbished yet. I will appreciate if you can drop me an e-mail (general.manager@fourseasonsfairways.com) with your villa number and I will have a look at it.

We all look forward to welcome you back.

Kindest regards
Jorge Oliveira

Another lovely stay at Four Seasons, 5 star facilities but 3 star comfort in the villas due to age, beds, furniture and carpets are very tired. Poor quality linen and towels and inadequate china and glass. Trust this will be addressed by next year. It is a shame that standards have dropped as it is a fantastic place with excellent staff. I would not discourage anyone from going but be prepared for the accommodation being a bit basic by today's standards.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa that has been recently refurbished.

Dear member,

Thank you for your support over the last 23 years and I am pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay with us.
With regards to the villa refurbishment, I am pleased to inform you that, this comming winter, we will restart our villa refurbishment program, and this will include new tiles, furniture, carpets, beds, kitchen, kitchen equipment, china, glasses, light switches, etc...

Nevertheless, we also do a continuous maintenance program to keep our standards high, and this includes replacement of carpets, linen, china, kitchen equipment, etc.
It is therefore with surprise that I noted your remark regarding the drop of our standards. We highly value the opinion of our members and guests, and I would be grateful if you can drop me an e-mail (general.manager@fourseasonsfairways.com) to discuss this more in detail, with the objective to improve the quality of our standards.

Again thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcome you back.

Kind regards
Jorge Oliveira

Second year staying in Fairways Villas in Quinta Do Lago. Although the villas are old at this stage they are still a good size with great bathrooms and living space - the pools are good with a great bar-b-q in each villa - if you need anything all you have to do is ring up to reception and the react very quickly.

All in all for what we paid on both trips it was great value and if relaxing and golf is your thing you could do much worse.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to hear that this was your second consecutive visit to Fairways and you had a good relaxing time with us.

Although the resort is celebrating its 25th anniversary next year, the management and the Board are constantly monitoring and improving the facilities and condition of the resort. In this context we started, a few years ago, a full refurbishment program of the villas, which hopefully will be concluded soon.

We look forward to welcome you back next year, if not before!

Kindest regards
Jorge Oliveira

This is our holiday home from home and look forward to visiting twice a year, every year. The staff are excellent and it's like meeting old friends. The only problem is, when you have an ordinary holiday in even a luxury hotel it never seems to quite compare. You get used to having privacy and space and conducting your holiday the way you want. Surrounding ourselves with the holidaying hoards is just not our idea of relaxation. QDL is quiet, the beautiful beach, when ever we are there only ever has a few people on it. The shops are stylish and the restaurants are michelin star if you want it or relaxed if that is what you want, but all good quality. The club is run very efficiently and you are made to feel part of it. We have taken four generations of family and many friends at different times, and I know other members do too and everyone enjoys a relaxed time with enough space that you don't crowd each other.
