Reviewed 4 February 2014

Just returned from two weeks at four seasons fairways. We are owners there, look forward to our stay each year and never want to go home. We have been owners for 17years and have loved every minute. Our grandchildren used the fun club for the first time, Lydia is a darling, they looked forward to seeing her each day. Congratulations to the general manager Jorge and all his wonderful staff each and every one is a credit to you and your dedication to the resort. Thank you. Can't wait to go back again next year.

Dear Member,

Thank you so much for your review. I am delighted to hear that Lidia took good care of your grandchildren. Now you know that the Funclub is available all year around, just call Lidia, and she will do the rest.
Your comments on the staff are much appreciated, they are indeed a great credit to the resort.

We all look forward to welcome you back.

My best wishes,
Jorge Oliveira

I stayed here with friends for a short break and I cannot fault it. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff, the food was amazing, great facilities. If only I could score it higher than 10/10. I'll be sure to return.

This was our first visit, and it was very nice indeed. It was too cold to use the pool, but most of the time it was warm enough to sit on the terrace at night. The villa was clean, spacious and well appointed. The master bedroom had a full en suite with whirlpool bath, TV and door onto a private courtyard. There was another double bedroom with en suite shower, bidet, WC etc. There was a separate shower room and WC. The biggest bedroom had two single beds but no en suite. It had doors onto the terrace. The decor of this room, out of character with the rest of the villa, was somewhat dull and sombre. There was efficient heating for cool days. The kitchen and laundry were well equipped with good quality appliances - the only quibble was there were no containers for storing opened food in the fridges, nor were there any basins or bowls for cooking. Internet access was patchy. Out on the terrace it was non existent, and indoors it varied. The staff were pleasant, nothing was too much trouble, and the whole atmosphere was welcoming.

We have had a share in a villa at Four Seasons Fairways for 17 years now and it was one of the best things we have ever done. We were in our late 30's when we bought and struggled to afford it but now we bring our grand children as well has various groups of children and their partners and it has saved us so much money, or has allowed us to holiday the way we prefer at a much lower cost than it otherwise would have. It is your holiday home abroad, but with none of the problems and you don't have a Villa stood empty for most of the year. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the facilities at the club house are really good. The improvements in the restaurant have been appreciated, the Algarvian meal we had on Saturday night was wonderful and such good value. We can't wait for our return in May.

Room Tip: If you go in winter Type F catches the best of the sun.

In Early December the temp was still 18c, but not warm enough to use the small unheated private pool. We had a 3 bedroom unit which was very poorly described in the exchange information. It sounded as if only one bedroom would have a proper bed! Actually, all three bedrooms had either King or large twins and two were en-suite and there was another bathroom. A large living space leading to sliding doors to a big patio around the pool, had a reasonable flat screen TV and couch area. The well fitted kitchen was open plan to that and had everything you need for self catering.

The staff at reception were excellent and so was the bar in the club house. We will definitely be back when in Europe and golfing.

We have just returned from a very relaxing 2 weeks in this exceptional resort. The villa was of a very high standard set in beautiful gardens with lots of space. The equipment is top notch, from the barbecue to the orange juicer. Probably the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on - and I forgot to look at the make of it !
The weather in late November, early December matched the surroundings - terrific, with no clouds for the first 11 days. Too cool to enjoy our own pool but warm enough to enjoy the sun traps around the villa. We used the indoor pool, jacuzzi and gym almost every day.
The physical advantages are nothing without a heart and this place has a big heart - the staff. They are so enthusiastic about excellent customer service. For example I asked for some logs for the wood burning stove at 4.45pm expecting them to be delivered the next day...." No problem sir, they will be delivered just after 5pm". Superb.
Set in an exceptionally attractive area ( you would need a really big lottery win to pick up a villa in this area), close to superb empty beaches and the interesting towns of Faro, Loule and Tavira nearby - try a Euro 8 return trip ( 1 hour) from Almancil station to Tavira, or a walk around old Faro, and don't forget the atmospheric market at Loule on a Saturday morning where you can buy fresh tuna at Euro 12 a kg.
I have already organised another holiday for March 2014 at this superb resort.

Room Tip: C style villas for larger family groups. The E style villa apartments with great views AND your own...
