“This apartment had everything we needed.”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Very happy with the service from the moment we booked via website to the day of arrival. Response times were excellent and it was nice to be met by Chris at our accommodation. He spent some time showing us around and explaining a few things. We chose this apartment for its situation close to Faro but away from the hotel complex of the West Algarve.it also has a roof terrace with a bbq so we sat out and enjoyed the views of the sunset in the evening. Olhao is by the harbour and has a great fish market. Nice bars to sit out and enjoy the sun. We hired a car at the airport without any hassle before or after. This enabled us to explore further afield. We enjoyed visiting the nature reserve Ria Formosa. We went to two parts of it, Pioneiros de marim and Quinta do Lago. Within 30 mins or so drive. Great for bird watching. The beach at Faro Island is great. We drove but you can also take the ferry there from Olhao for about 4 euros. We hired kayaks there for 2 euros which was great fun. Found it relatively easy to find our way around with sat nav on phone. Would recommend a Japanese restaurant in Faro. Eat as much as you like from a large choice of dishes including sushi for 12 euros. It's called Osaka. Avenida da Republica Street. It's probably worth booking in advance for an evening meal as it gets busy. Altogether a great holiday for our first visit to Portugal. Will definitely come again.
