What a great apartment! Upstairs with a balcony looking towards the pool and the restaurant. You do need however to have a car or taxi for the week to get to the majority of restaurants within Quinta. We flew with Jet2 and hired a car with Firefly from the UK. Don't use this company as they are not on site at Faro and charged us approx €100 insurance when we arrive (instead of the €2000 they wanted to take off our credit card just in case!) One bedroom has two single beds with an ensuite shower room and one bedroom has double bed with ensuite bathroom with shower over. There is also a separate toilet and sink which, with a teenage girl and boy, worked perfectly. Kitchen is great and there is absolutely everything you need to self cater. Extremely clean. Gas bbq on terrace. We ate in more than we planned just because it was so easy. Go to the Apolonia Supermarket (Waitrose on Steroids) a 15 mins drive away at Almancil, rather than the supermarket within Quinta/Vale do Lobo. Walk down to The Shack for lunch and hire bikes for the week, although wouldn't recommend Rent a Bike as they were poorly maintained and we had to exchange one. Terrazza restaurant (next to and part of Montys) at Vale do Lobo is great. Went kayaking on the Ria Formasa with David at Formosamar next to the airport but go in the mornings when the tide is lower. Also go to Maria's Restaurant which is on the beach. Tennis racquets can be hired for a deposit. There is a gym and pool, although in October is was too cold to swim. Only two criticisms 1 the TV should be in the room with the double bed and we had no maid service, which whilst not needed, would have been nice. I'm not sure though whether this was our fault for not requesting. Sadly, with a washing machine/drier, we even washed and dried all our clothes before we came home! Would definitely recommend.
