Trip from airport
We arrived just before midnight so the airport was very quiet but the guy who picked us up to go to our apartment was lovely. The journey to VitaSol Park took about an hour and a bit. Wasn't too bad-ish
When we arrived, it was obviously really late so we had to pick our keys from security. We had to find our own way the apartment but luckily there was a couple that noticed we looked lost so they helped us find our block. When we walked in it was a really nice apartment. However, when we walked into the bedroom there was 2 single beds :( so my boyfriend and I went to the security guy and tried to explain that we asked for a double but he didn't speak English and there wasn't anything he could do anything about it. He did advise us to go to reception in the morning. My boyfriend and I decided to just put the bed together for the time being which worked out alright.
There is noooo WiFi in the apartment! At first I wasn't too happy because I wanted to get in contact with people at home to let them know that we arrived safely. After the first day I was kind of happy because a break from technology does u good, trust me. The only way we were able to use the wifi was to sit outside the reception. So just ask them for the password then they will give it to you. There isn't any seating area really, only some little stone thing near security.
If you REALLY REALLY want wifi then in the town there is a phone shop called "BlueStore" they might have something for you to purchase?
TV in the apartment...
....is rubbish! My boyfriend was really upset about it but I can do without tv as I don't really watch it when I'm home anyway
To get to town you have to go down a long hill, it's not bad at all going down it but going back up is a workout lol.
The town was really nice. Had everything really and there were a lot of stands around trying to sell activities such as dolphin watching and kayaking. Was a lovely walk around the town and it seemed really safe.
The Pizza Hut there was fantastic but do try the Portuguese restaurants too! They can cooook! Mmmmm
To get the beach u can catch a little boat from town for 0.60€ literally 2mins. The beach was LOVELY! The sea was amazing and if you go further down there is a company that do water sports for good prices. You must try it! I really wanted to do jet skiing but my boyfriend was too scared of the water so we settled for the boat that you peddle in (I don't remember what it was called)
Overall the whole experience was peaceful and relaxing. I would definitely go there again without a doubt. If you are looking for somewhere to party, I don't think this is the place for you.
