We took a villa here in July 2012 and it was lovely.It was clean,the staff were friendly and helpful and the villa was well equipped with a dishwasher,washing machine and microwave.The lounge and bedrooms had air conditioning with remote controls which was so good in 30degree heat. We stayed a week and loved it however our plan was not to hire a car but it was really necessary to do so as the mini market on the complex was closed down so to get milk/bread essentials meant a trip in a taxi if the tiny shop ten minutes walk away didn't have what you needed.It took us 40minutes from Faro airport.The nearest beach was 10/15 minutes in a taxi as was Carvoeiro and reception had to ring for a taxi for you which usually meant a 15/20 minute wait for one to come up from the town.Taxi prices were reasonable between €6-€9 to go to the beach/Carvoeiro,price depended on time of day and day of week.But I would strongly recommend hiring a car as its quite an isolated spot otherwise.Theres a good selection of restaurants in Carvoeiro and Ferraguda the other side but check Tripadvisor on these too as some are much better than others. The complex felt really safe and secure but geared towards a younger age group,families with children would adore it.We have older teenagers and they loved chilling out but felt a bit removed from the action and any nightclubs etc.
It'd be ideal for families or friends to holiday together,hiring villas beside each other. To note,there's wifi available in the reception area but not in the villas.
