Okay, was hard to find as sat-nav has issues (please jot down the gps co-ordinates to make your life a bit easier should you ave issues:
GPS: N 37º 6' 41.98'' , W 8º 29' 34.39''
Staff were great, food was amazing, place was lovely and peaceful when we went (after summer holidays). Got upgraded to a villa which was very spacious for the two of us but very nice. About 45 mins from Faro airport and lots of things to do nearby if you don't mind a short drive.
Martin's grill at Carvoeiro beach does awesome steak (I have very high standards for steak!) Zoomarine is about 25 mins away - dolphin show was awesome so get in about 20 mins before it starts as gets real busy. Lots of boat trips from Vilamoure (35-40 mins away - don't just turn up obviously). Didn't get a chance to do Bulldog Buggies (check their website for details) looks like great fun if that's what our after but pack clothes to get dirty.
Sorry back to the resort. Looked amazing. Gardeners are constantly working to keep up appearances. Reception very helpful. Got a massage by the pool which was relaxing (very strokey) not sure if the lady does them harder as I'm one of those "no pain no gain" people but didn't ask as I don't know much Portuguese and it was relaxing anyway :-)
Bar and restaurant staff all lovely :-)
People have previously mentioned the barking dogs (yeah I heard one but was hardly an issue - take some earplugs if concerned).
The hard beds have also been mentioned. I have to admit, I do like a firm mattress but these were still too hard or me. Hardly ruined it though. Would still come again :-)
All in all one of the best holidays I've ever had :-)
Thank you and see you again one day!
