Patio Do Convento

Hi we are thinking of staying in patio do convento in August - any opinions please? Anyone stayed here? Is it nice? Does pool area get packed? We are looking at a 3 bed. Travelling with young children so want to be close to shops and restaurants - we've never been to Lagos - have stayed in Vilamoura the last few holidays so looking forward to a change. Any advice welcome. Thanks.

The apartments are centrally located just behind the bus station and within 15 minutes walk to the town beach. Nearest supermarket pingo dolce 5 mins walk. The apartments are of good standard, most fitted with air con. Just check. I personally would say like any hotel/apartment July and August always busy. Pool is the same depth no shallow end, but clean and tidy. Small clean play area for younger children to keep them occupied. Sun loungers on a first come basis but no sun brollies but you can find shady areas. Would suggest a ground floor apartnent pool facing which would in my opinion be easier for the kids nipping in and out. If you require any more info either PM or post your question on forum. Enjoy

On the plus side the pool area is gated with an access code, so you should only have residents around the pool. However, there's no getting away from the fact that the the pool will be on the busy side in August (just like anywhere on the Algarve).

As jacksprat says, a poolside apartment may best suit, although you'll be extremely lucky to have any choice at this late stage. Please note that blocks 1 and 2 do NOT have poolside access.

Am I correct in thinking that these apartments are very close to Quintas das Palmerias where we stayed last year?
