This was my first visit to Rio Apartments. I found the staff very friendly and helpful, with the apartment well equipped and clean, though they didn't have any mugs for my morning cuppa! The view was OK, overlooking surrounding gardens and apartment blocks, with a glimpse of the sea, some 2km away. The general area was quiet, although it was...

We arrived Wednesday 21 December approx 22.00 p.m. our flight was delayed. I'd read the booking confirmation beforehand stating if you arrived later than 19.00 hours to let them know. I emailed this instruction in advance and was told on arrival at Faro airport to call a number and that someone would meet us at the apartments. We got our...

We stayed for a week and we were surprised after some of the reviews we read . The room was clean and had everything you could want . The staff in reception were helpful . The only downside was the miserable couple who ran the bar / restaurant. It was a very quiet area and a nice twenty min walk...

The location is quite good, very close to the Vilamoura Marina (15 minutes walking, 5 m driving). However I felt very disappointed with the apartment. It is composed by a living room with bed sofa (sleep 2), a small kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom with two twin beds. The room has some cracks on the wall, needing some repaint....

The apartment was very basic and old, there was one socket in the kitchen for a microwave, kettle, and toaster. the towels were changed twice a week. The wi-fi only worked in reception and it was very poor. We did not have air-conditioning. We did not have a extractor fan in the bathroom and there was some plumbing problems as...

Stayed here for a week, beds were comfy, room spacious with seperate kitchen and bathroom. Decent shower! With a bath, kitchen had most utensils needed for self catering. It was clean,although as the week went on we found the room to be damp.

This was a very cheap break so I was unsure what to expect. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. we arrived at 10am and even though check in wasn't until 2pm our room was ready and we were allowed to check in. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. I will be visiting again.

We read the mixed reviews and found the good reviews were the accurate ones.We booked here for 8 nights at the beginning of October for a final break before winter sets in in the UK. We never usually go self catering so we didn't know what to expect. The price was very cheap, just over £100 for the room. The...
