9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very helpful and nice staff!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The set up of the place was great - intimate, comfortable and friendly without being overbearing. The personal touch was lovely. The food was amazing and the way they served breakfast and dinner was different and enjoyable. Food was fresh and delicious! Our room was lovely and very well decorated. Loved the set up with the car park and the fob to get in and out. It was like having your own home but with boutique hotel service. Loved the grounds, the veg patch and the spots around the grounds to sit and relax. Loved the massage hut! Loved the flavoured water and daily cake too! The small touches at this hotel made the difference.
Cons: You can’t get anywhere without a car unfortunately and from what we could see there were only two useable bikes which were always gone.. Wasn’t keen on the curvy sun beds and the flat ones had no cushions, so only the cabanas could be used and these had limitations wrt sunbathing due to the roof and there aren’t enough for all guests. Our room was lovely but had no ventilation in the bathroom, which was only separated from our room by a sliding door. We missed out on the wine tasting as it was after we left which was a shame as we thought it was a great idea

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Keen bird watcher this property was excellent. Rooms were clean tidy bath room cleaned daily new towels hosts so helpful, amazing price, When I visited in late April, I was upgraded to a larger room at no extra cost as they were not very busy, Continental breakfast included, great coffee Really is a no brainier! Would recommend to anyone visiting the region, whether passing through as Spain just 15mins away, Great base to explore the local culture and countryside. I really enjoyed the my stay here and will be returning in late summer/autumn, For me the hotel was just away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist centre yet on the main routes to explore the area,
Cons: These are not dislikes, more opportunities for improvement 1/ When its busy the car park can be quite tight, but the host was away there to assist 2/ An extra plug in the room would have been useful as I had a lot of electrical equipment and batteries that needed charging 3/ WiFi was really useful

8.0 Excellent
Pros: This was 1 of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. Jose & Theresa were so friendly& helpful . THe guesthouse itself was beautifully laid out & the rooms were spotless. Sunloungers in front garden, little terrace with tables & chairs, a truly lovely breakfast with the most scrumptious fresh rolls & coffee. Nothing was too much even finding out train timetables for us & finding alternative accomm for us when we made an impromptu decision to stay an extra 2 days. Cant praise this place enough.
Cons: It's on a roundabout with 5 roads leading off it but honestly ( & I'm a really bad sleeper) it doesn't cause a problem as the double-glazing is very effective & ear plugs guarantee a good sleep. The + side of the location is that it's a 3 min. walk to the train station fro where you can get a ticket to Faro for 4 euro pp!!! Taxi works out at approx 55-60euro.

Cons: Everything was great. To be perfect, I would add some citronella candles outside, and would improve the amenities in the kitchen — bigger pan or a wok, corkscrew, vegetable peeler, kitchen paper roll (it's the same of having a bathroom with no toilet paper), wooden spoons, tablecloth, kitchen cloth (there was only one) and a oven tray or Pyrex.

Pros: Our host Alexander was brilliant. Immediately came to find us when we got a bit lost arriving from the airport in the dark and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Help yourself bar with 'honesty book', which was very nice when we had settled in. The room was lovely, and the breakfast was amazing - local produce and everything was beautifully presented and really delicious. Enjoyed our tour of the new facilities currently being built, chatting to him and meeting his lovely family. Very nice views over the countryside, and not too far from the sea.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic garden and such a pleasant atmosphere. Great pool area with fantastic views
5.8 Okay
Pros: The location is beautiful, the villa was spacious and the kitchen was well equipped.
Cons: What a stressful experience! -There were two bathrooms one en-suite in the private room and one next to the kitchen. The toilet in the bathroom next to the kitchen didn’t work and the whole group, seven of us had to use the one in the private room. It was very stressful and uncomfortable. The couple in the private room didn’t know the rest of my friends and they had requested a room to have a bit of privacy, which they didn’t get because everyone had to use the toilet throughout the night. That particular bathroom didn’t have a proper door. I had to put pressure on the manager to find a solution for us, she insinuated that it would be difficult to find a plumber to sort out the problem because it was Easter weekend. How come the property don’t have a maintenance person in stand by for emergencies? I booked the villa ( casa Palmeira) 4 months before our arrival and I was very disappointed at finding that I didn’t get the property I rented with all the facilities I was promised. On the first day the manager asked me to pay in full for the villa and she never mentioned that there was a problem with one of the toilets. Later when I confronted her about why she didn’t tell me she said she had forgotten which I found it hard to believe. The manager said she was sorry but I didn’t get offered any type of compensation.

Cons: I would like to have a bit more options for vegans in breakfast.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The laid-back atmosphere, the small houses with terraces, the farm environment, location was good to visit several parts of the Algarve and nearby Spain.
Cons: Unfortunately a couple of things didn't go so well, wifi did not work for about 3 days and we had 2 roosters making noise every night. The staff was trying to solve the problem, but the fact is we were unable to sleep through a whole night for the duration of our stay.

Pros: We loved everything about this property! It is situated just off the beaten track, yet close enough to all the attractions the Algarve has to offer. Our hosts were amazing, they made us feel at home and went out of their way to accommodate our needs (early breakfasts and travel assistance). The breakfast was delicious and even included some homemade Portuguese treats! The facilities are very clean and well kept. We especially enjoyed the quietness of the countryside and hope to visit again in the future!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had high expectations of this hideaway and it did not disappoint. Rather, it exceeded them. The location is perfect, the scenery magnificent and the hosts are so welcoming and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfast is plentiful and delicious with hams, cheeses, yogurts, fresh bread, fruit etc, and little extras (Thank you Ophelia for the cakes and mixed eggs)! There is plenty of walking in the near area, including marked trails in the hills. There are lots of historic places to visit within 40 minutes or so - the castle at Castro Marim, just 10 minutes away, being a highlight - as was the nature trail through the salt pans and marshes (great for birdwatchers). Ours was a spring visit so we did not loiter on the beaches, but did walk in the Rio Natural do Formosa, taking in the scenery and enjoying the deserted beaches that seemed to stretch for miles. Our room was beautiful, with views over the mountains.... we can't wait to go back again!
Cons: Nothing. It was all perfect.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and somehow this one really gets it right. For the price it is just mind-blowing. Really feels at home because it's a nice mix of comfort, elegant design, cleanliness. Everything you need for a holiday and nothing in excess. Room was comfortable, elegant in a simple way, beautiful view, super clean. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, every person from the manager to the housekeeping staff, especially to our 2 year old. Gave us toys for her to play with at the beach, stories to read at bedtime...very accommodating. Food was amazing at the restaurant for dinners. Hotel sits in a beautiful pine forest with a short walk or free cart ride to the beach. The beach is clean with nice soft sand. Some options for services at the beach but it wasn't overcrowded in June at all. Free parking, easy to find, less than hour's drive from Faro but on the quieter side (east). Is also well-located for a few other activities. We went to ZooMarine (1 hour drive) and Seville (1.5 hour drive) - can recommend both!
Cons: In June the pool was too cold for us to swim in which was disappointing for us since we were with a two-year old, but there were others who didn't seem to mind. Would have liked a few healthier options for breakfast (perhaps avocado, hard boiled eggs, berries, oatmeal).

Pros: Absolutely beautiful setting. A real oasis. Relaxed atmosphere. So much choice of seating and lounging areas! So quiet - the only daytime sound was birdsong! Breakfast choice was really superb! The communal fridge and food preparation area was very good - and meant we could save time and money by making our own lunch and drinks. The area was kept very clean and tidy by staff and other guests. The option of an honesty bar if required - though we didn't use it.
Cons: There was not too much we could do within walking distance. Not many facilities in the local town. No information in the room or communal areas on what to do there, or in the surrounding area. In particular any detail on nearby restaurants. Only one restaurant (albeit a good local cuisine one) appeared to be open within walking distance.

Pros: This is the best place we've stayed in Portugal! It's a beautiful, village setting, surrounded by orange, fig, and olive trees! Each individual room has an interior access or courtyard access. The breakfast was a delicious spread with a variety of breads, cheeses, cold cuts, jams, juices fruit, etc. The courtyard is a cozy setting with plenty of tables and lounge chairs to enjoy breakfast with a view to the pool. The room and private bathroom was simple, but clean. In the morning we had the pleasure of hearing the rooster crowing!! It was such a beautiful and enjoyable stay, we would be glad to return here in the future for an extended holiday.

Pros: All was excellent apart from our room. The breakfast was superb, the pool area and gardens were fabulous. The location was brilliant.
Cons: The only downside was the size of room and bathroom, only just adequate for 2. Also our room was poolside which was great in one respect but we had no real privacy except if we kept curtains drawn. This would have been okay but the lighting in the room was poor... Nevertheless we had a really great time

Pros: Beautiful garden, very peaceful. Good location 15 minutes drive from Praia Verde which is lovely. Nice to be able to use kitchen facilities. Good value for money.
Cons: The owners weren't welcoming and didn't seem like they were bothered about us having an enjoyable stay. They didn't seem keen to engage at all and rarely gave us a smile in the 5 days we were there. The bed was also quite uncomfortable - springs digging into my back etc. The biological pool was more like a pond so we didn't swim in it at all!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: An incredibly pleasant, quiet and cozy place, with a very kind staff, a relaxing green outdoor, a pond and a swimming pool. The best place to relax in the open air in a lovely countryside, and near some of the most beautiful beaches of the eastern Algarve. Also the breakfast is tasty, varied and abundant.
Cons: The only thing that can be improved is the kitchen, because a single electric cooker for the guests of 6 rooms is really too small, as well as the sink and the dish rack . But this is the only flaw in a really excellent accommodation.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved everything very relaxing stay in lovely setting. Great hosts. Nice breakfast. Room was well equipped with small fridge, toiletries etc. Comfortable bed. Hope to return one day.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The friendliness of the staff. They were all very well informed and seemed very happy to be working there and spoke very kindly about the owner.
Cons: The breakfast was fine but the service was obviously dependent on the duty staff. We had great staff on the first and third day but not the second otherwise the breakfast was more than adequate. More signage around the resort. We had difficulty finding our way around not being familiar with the layout.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Air con was awesome which often isn't the case in vacation villas. Tons of space. Villa overlooked pool so it was right there but also felt removed with privacy. Outdoor eating and lounging space was very large. Kitchen was state of the art. We were a family plus a grandparent and everyone had plenty of personal space. Finally - tons to do nearby (within 20 min drive) which enabled us to do pool most of day and a full activity exploring towns/castles each day also.
Cons: Always looking for areas to walk outside - monte rei isn't fully developed yet so not great options on that front. Service at pool restauarant was very slow, which was a challenge with young children. Food itself was very good. Because it's relatively new and still being developed things like spa required advance booking which made it unlikely for us to use them.

Pros: Everything was perfect! Excellently furnished house, very comfy beds, daily housekeeping, huge bathroom, good swimming pool, excellent golf course
