We stayed for 1 week in this lovely apartment which was ideal for a couple. The seaviews were lovely and the pool area was never busy. We read tripadvisor reviews about restaurants and this was very useful. To get to the beach towards Vilamoura you go up to the Riu hotel and go down steep steps - this is a lovely beach. The other nice beach is out of the complex, up to the road, turn left and keep walking. We did the jeep safari 1 day and this takes you up to the countryside and was good value - 20 euros including lunch. Tickets are bought for all trips opposite the Riu hotel. We got a taxi to the marina in Vilamoura one night. Eating out was very cheap - about 30 euros including house wine.
