We ordered taxis from reception to get around. Unfortunately, the taxi response time was very sporadic (sometimes 10 minutes, once over 1 hour). There is a bus stop opposite for town, but we figured that 4 bus tickets amount to a similar price as a taxi ride.
The internet access fees are far too high at the complex. Instead, we bought an Optimus Kanguru Wifi for circa Eur 50 which included 7 days unlimited internet for all our devices; perfect for our stay. We found the item in a phone shop in the Albufeira shopping complex. Happy teenagers, happy adults :)
Our 1 bed apartment was very close to the reception. It was modernized with an unexpected lovely second shower and toilet. In the kitchen, further whoops of joy. There was a handy microwave AND an unexpected kettle AND a washing machine. No walks for us to the on-site launderette! The pools were great, we found the pretty one shown in advertisements. There are great apartments right by the pools. I was originally disappointed that we could hear traffic noise from our apartment as the road was close by, hidden by beautiful shrubs, lawn and palm trees but I got to appreciate the privacy we had and the boys could play football without disturbing anybody.
We were to busy lazying around or going to the beach to actually eat at one of the restaurants on site but they look fine. The staff were very friendly, cleaner comes daily if you want to. Loved it!
