This was our first visit to the Algarve - previously, we have been to Greek Islands.

Accomodation -

We stayed in the two bed apartments. They are basically a semi detached house. They are massive inside. Huge well equiped kitchen - full oven, hob, dishwasher, washing machine. Large lounge and dining room. Bedrooms very good and both have balcony with excellent views. Nice big bathroom too.

Accomodation opens out onto huge lawns - our boys spent lots of their time playing football etc.

BUT - and its a BIG BUT, the walls are paper thin. Infact, what separtes you from your neighbour is nothing more than two bits of plasterboard. Fortunately, there was only someone next to us on two days, but you could hear everything, even the water going down the plughole.

Prior to going we had actually booked up for 2005 but since cancelled because of this.

Complex - this was excellent - nice pool, tennis courts, 5 a side pitch etc.

Kids Club - again excellent, the boys loved it.

Location - very peacful, but you definately will need a car - nearest beach is excellent with a nice restraunt on it, but a good 30 min walk away.

Food - OK, but very very limited choice. When in Greece, massive amounts of choice and cheep, but not here.

Overall we had a good time but would not go back because of the thin walls - a shame because you will not find better quality and spacious accomodation at that price.

The complex itself is on the edge of town, and so can be very quiet. However this can be either an advantage or a disadvantage depending on your point of view.

The accommodation is really first class and this makes the holiday. The complex has a nice pool area and a reasonable restaurant which is well priced compared to the local competition. The TV system allows you to choose and book a video to be shown that night at a pre agreed time from a selection in the reception area -or you could take your own of course - and this is popular with a lot of people at some time during their stay.

The location is central to the Algarve, but a car is a must on a two week stay as there isn't a great deal to see within walking distance.

If you haven't been to the Algarve before then hire a car and go to Lagos and further along the coast heading west as far as Cape St Vincent.

All in all this complex is an excellent base for a relaxed family holiday; and if you enjoy cooking then the well equipped kitchen and wide variety of fish and other delights available in this part of the world all add up to a great time.
