We stayed for 4 nights for a relaxing end to our holiday. Out of season towards the end of September - the bar wasn't always open but we were allowed to bring drinks to the poolside and looked after our own rubbish. Time of year also meant great weather and a quiet shared pool!
We stayed in a townhouse: ample parking space (2 cars), lots of room, great outdoor spaces including balconies. Provision of simple amenities including all white goods and potentially necessary accompanying household items (dishwasher tabs, laundry powder, washing up liquid etc). Perhaps the only fault would be a number of ants dotted around the apartment and probably could have done with basic goods being available such as cooking oil or oven gloves - not really anything worth being bothered about!
Easy drive to several supermarkets nearby. 10 minutes walk downhill to Carvoeiro beach/cove, plenty of restaurants and several bars. Lovely short boardwalk along the coast or a longer, slightly more adventurous walk continuing to the small lighthouse still in use.
Perfectly safe and clean environment. Friendly and helpful staff and security. Be careful finding this place with your satnav - it's too new and a lot of roads are unnamed!
