We are in the middle of a 3 week trip around Portugal, Morocco and Southern Spain. Having 2 nights here to relax was great and enjoyable. We used points from a timeshare in the States to book this pace. We found the 2 room villa to be very spacious and comfortable. The market on site was well-priced and stocked, so we had all of our meals in the villa. We enjoyed the pool both days, it's very large and well done. We ran to the beach in the mornings (about a 1.5 mile run one way).
There is no wi-fi right now in the villa, but the reception area has it and it works well. Also, we had conflicting stories on whether or not it was okay to drink the water from the tap, so we just boiled ours.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They are very well trained and some of the best that I have ever encountered. They worked hard to get us our villa 3 hours before check-in time (16:00). Also, we had a little bit of an ant problem in our room, and they came out several times to try and get rid of them. They even left us a complimentary bottle of wine for the inconvenience.
We did not rent a car, we took the train from Lags to Faro and a taxi to Qunita do Lago (30 euro). It is 32 euro to get private transport to the Faro airport.
