Hi, Hoping to go here in early July (8th) but realise we have left it late for organising accommodation. Ideally we would have booked a villa but cant find anything that is within walking distance of beaches and the restaurants. Have found that we could get one week in a Monte Dourado villa (mountain facing) or could go to the Hotel Tivoli. The Tivoli would cost us twice as much (although we would have transfers and evening meals) but we normally like eating out in the evenings so would still want to do that. Not sure if anyone who has been here can advise us on which would be better? We have 3 teenage sons if that makes any difference! Thanks for your help.
We stayed at MD the last two years. It was an excellent base, spacious apartment for 4, fabulous views, steep walk back from town, lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance, can't comment on the Tivoli. The first year was excellent for us as the kids then 9 and 10 met lots of friends. There were some quieter teenagers there who seemed happy didn't surface till late, some our kids age and some younger. But last year end of August not many teens or kids our kids age most kids seemed to be aged 3-8 so our two then 11 and 12 were bored. I am sure it would be fine another to check out is Quinta De Paradiso which also looked good, haven't stayed here but might also meet your requirements.
