Just a warning to allow plenty of time at Faro airport. Chaos here this morning, massive queues at bag drop to check Covid test results & passenger locator forms, a few not having completed theirs. Even if you just have cabin bags you still have to go to bag drop!

Re: Returning to Portugal?

On arrival very quick through passport control, we had to show our PCR test results. Printed Passenger locator forms had to be shown on departure at Luton. Cabin crew said ‘we are not the mask police’! However they did make a further announcement about the wearing of masks and had a discrete word wi...

Re: Returning to Portugal?

Arrived in Carvoeiro today, flew with EasyJet, the flight was half full & Luton airport very quiet. The flight was good aside from the young guy in front of us who thought it was okay not to wear his mask! No snacks served during the flight however you can take food on board. Sadly families are havi...

Re: Returning to Portugal?

We had our PCR tests done yesterday and should receive the results by 10pm this evening, at the latest 48 hours. We went to Express testing in Brent Cross, there are several locations to choose from however we wanted an early evening test, the procedure was quick & efficient. As far as I know they’r...

One particular restaurant the food was plated up using their own crockery & serving dishes, which we returned the following day. it’s not...

Re: Vimar restaurant

We’ve been for lunch in Vimar at least 3 times during our 6 week stay. Food much improved and excellent value for money. They’ve also been very welcoming and the service has been friendly and efficient.

Re: Lagoa restaurants

We have booked to go to Gaspatcho & Migas, it sounds great. We also like Chrissys & Tapas No Bucho. I would also recommend Algarvia 31, we had cover followed by beautifully cooked sea bass and mixed meat. The house red was also very good. No dessert other than fresh fruit offered all at a very reaso...
