Hi Trevor,

Dont know the complex so cant comment on it. We stayed in Guia last June in a villa in Quinta dos Barrancos(I think!). It was a great base for travelling the Algarve if you have a car, very close to the main roads. This allows you to travel east or west easily and you are really close to the Zoomarine and the waterparks. 10 mins to the beaches and Albufeira.

Our villa was only a 10 min walk into town. There's not any real nightlife in Guia if thats what you are looking for. Mainly just restaurants and very laid back. The food is fantastic. Try Ramirez, Palladium and the one just down from the Palladium. They are all good. Piri piri in Guia is a must!

We knew it was quiet in Guia before we went and it was exactly what we were looking for (I watched the Scotland footy game in the bar across from the Palladium with my wife and the barman, only 3 of us in this great big pub on a saturday afternoon!!) . A relaxing holiday by the pool, the odd wee trip out to another town or algarve shopping during the day and eating out at night.

I have no idea what it will be like in April but in June it appeared pretty quiet but the restaurants were nearly always full. Travel 5 mins by car and there are loads of restaurants. Our fave was the Museu de Salgados, it was always busy.

Anything else, just ask.

Guia football club bar is always lively and a nice place to drink with the very friendly locals.
Hi, which villa are you booking?
We own a three bed villa with private pool in this area.
Casa dos Passarinhos.
We have holidayed here for over 30 years, it is paradise.
Cobbled tree lined streets, peaceful, safe for families, no rowdy parties.
Lovely manicured parkland for residents to to stroll around and relax.
Close to everything the Algarve has to offer.
Just a few minutes from ZooMarine and Algarve Shopping
Known as the Restaurant Village, due to the many fabulous family run good restaurants.
Only 10 minutes from Albufeira if you are interested in night life.
And only 30 minutes from Faro Airport.
