"Superb quiet getaway for relaxation"
My wife and I went here for a mini-moon, 4 nights, and we absolutely loved it.
First, the food -- absolutely world-class. We both tried something different for every meal and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Seafood was fresh and very tasty, but I would recommend their beef/steak options -- superb! The lite lunch options were also excellent. And the breakfast buffet had plenty of options including a wide array of fruit, pastries, English breakfast stuff and crepes.
Second, the place itself -- excellent! It's about 40 minutes in a car from Faro airport, which isn't too bad. It's got it's own beautiful beach, proper sand and pretty calm waters. On the grounds, there are plenty of outdoor spaces, including big, relaxing, covered beds, in the garden and by the pool to hang out in. We never had issues finding a spot to relax between drink/pool/beach breaks, whether you wanted to bake in the sun or grab some shade. Tennis courts looked great, but despite our best efforts, the lure of relaxing on the beach or by the pool was just too much and we never managed to get around to playing. We had a junior suite which was plenty large enough to hang out in.
Finally, the staff -- awesome! Everyone was so very, very friendly and a joy to be served by. Reception and shuttle driver all spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The bar and restaurant stuff though, were some of the finest we've ever had the pleasure of dealing with, we loved seeing them everyday!
