"A few issues but generally a good stay"
We had a nice time at the accommodation but did have a few problems. One of the days we were there, there was no water at all. When I phoned Filipa, she told me to go downstairs to the Reception to ask about this. I told her that I couldn't speak Portuguese and I was not dressed, due to not being able to shower and wondered if she could phone. Although she did this, I felt she was slightly peeved that I had bothered her. She did however phone and the problem was sorted out later that day.
Also we stayed for 10 days and did not get fresh bedding at all while we were there. I kept thinking that someone would come in and change the sheets but when I realised this wasn't going to happen, it seemed pointless complaining! I could have washed them myself (as there are facilities in the apartment) but they would not have dried in time.
Apart from these two issues, we did have a nice stay. The apartment is quite large and is well equipped - it was most things including a washing machine and diswasher, but not a 'cool box' for days out - this would be useful. It is slightly further out and I would recommend a car. We saw some beautiful places in the car because we were able to get out and about.
On the last day we realised that we were able to go next door to the Pescana and use their pool and facilities, however be careful - the Pescana is an all inclusive resort. When I purchased 3 halves of lager it cost a whooping Euro 10! So don't purchase from the bar - take your own!
There are places to eat closeby however it was also pleasant to walk to other restaurants and bars, the exercise felt good.
I would stay here again but I would ensure that I knew when cleaning day was.
