Great facility, somewhat remote.

The Amendoeira resort is very well maintained and our mezzanine apartment was fantastic, consisting of a living space, a fully equipped, high spec kitchen, a balcony, 2 bedrooms (the mezzanine essentially providing a 3rd) and a large sun terrace. The resort is a little remote and there is nothing external of it within walking distance. A car is necessary if you want to venture anywhere as even a return taxi fare to the closest supermarket (Aldi) is about €20. Having said that the general location was quite good for getting about the Algarve.
We stayed for two weeks on an SC basis but did very little self catering (only breakfasts) as we found the food in the clubhouse to be good and very reasonably priced. Staff were freindly and service was good. After initial concerns it was a bit quiet / remote we found our feet and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We enjoyed the sports facilities, of which there are many. The golf courses were both very good, my favourite being the O'Connor course. The 9 hole pitch and putt course is also impressive.
