We stayed in apartment 203 which we rented privately from Owners Direct.
The apartments are HUGE! More than enough spare for a family of 4. Our apartment was extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly think of and the kids loved the fact we had flat screen TV and DVD library! We had over 100 books in the apartment to read, along with a cupboard full of games!
The apartment was cleaned on arrival and linen changed once throughout the stay. We had to wash our own towels but this was part of the agreement on the rental so we knew we wouldn't have daily cleaners in.
We stayed for 2 weeks (30th July - 13th August) - the start of August is holiday time in Portugal and everyone decends from the north making everywhere quite busy. Our pool seemed to be used by people other than those staying at the apartments. This mean there were the usual sunbed savers - which got worse towards the end of our stay. To be fair, Edwardo (the guy behind the pool bar who seemed to run things) did come round a move towels off some days.
There is a reception area, but we never saw it open (although as we rented privately we didn't need to use it).
We took two children aged 9 and 12 and there were enough children around for making friends and playing.
All in all a great value holiday, excellently located (10 minutes one direction to beach, 10 minutes other direction to town) and brilliantly equipped.
