It is quiet with a great view, close to one of the excellent large swimming pools, golf and tennis courts. Also access is so easy from Faro, 70 kms along the motorway and then 2 minutes to Boavista. The apartment suited us (4 adults), was close to an excellent supermarket, beaches and the town. We would recommend booking early if you wish to eat at the Sunday Carvery in the Clubhouse. Craig and Nikki were most accommodating and we would certainly like to return.

From the superb golf course to the proximity to Luz and and Lagos and the club houseand spa with its excellent staff and the beautifully maintained grounds . This was definitely our best stay so far . The apartment is in an excellent location directly opposite the community swimming pool . It's also excellently maintained and the careways staff take away the daily grind of making beds and cleaning showers and loos . Mr Kirk was a delight to deal with and very helpful with our questions . We would unreservedly recommend this apartment and this complex .John and Joy Cooke .
