Re: very pleasant

Sounds good Pato but will they still do the rather tasty baguettes on the lunchtime menu?! My son will be mortified if not :D

Happy New Year all

Does anyone know whether there are plans to rebuild O Pirata following the fire last year? Our holiday last year was blighted by the lack of their pizzas and cold beer at lunchtimes!!

Cheers

Re: Faro Airport

Morning all Travelled back through Faro last night. Check in really easy, security very quiet, same with passport control. However once through to the food court it was not nice. Very little seating and a small area. Then the workmen started with the drills and you could hardly hear yourself think. ...

Hi Farol

I hadn't resorted to the turn it all off and turn it on again but will certainly give that a try :D

If not Mr Cool sounds like the solution.

Re: Daikin Air Con

Hi Guys

Thanks for the replies but no dice - I reset the clock, turned the timer off and have tried each remote with each unit. They are set to cool function and nothing else it turned on.

Any other thoughts greatly appreciated :-)

Re: Travelrent

Just back and used Yor Car - Had a 3 year old Punto that had 60K on the clock and a smaller engine than the go kart I drove but pick up and drop off were easy and efficient and it got me from A to B when I needed it so happy enough.

Re: Go Karting Centre

Hi

I went for the first time with a group of 5 kinds and 3 adults. A very good setup - good karts, great track and very funny watching a bunch of 11 year olds trying to drive like Lewis and visiting every run off and gravel trap in site.

Hi All Since the introduction of wifi at Rocha Brava I have decided to disconnect the fixed phone line we have with PT. However I am stranded in the UK and a quick surf through the PT wbsite didn't help me in finding out how to go about cancelling the line. Has anyone got any experience of doing thi...
