Close to everything
Great low priced place to stay if you want somewhere walkable to old town and nearby. Right beside the cat pier where you can see some lovely local cats. Friendly and helpful owner who was always available when needed.

4 nights by the sea
I loved the location and the view (sea view balcony room). Great facilities with a kettle and fridge in the room and full shared kitchen downstairs. Room cleaning was very thorough and the shared kitchen was clean as well

Lovely apartment in great location
Great apartment in excellent location very near the beach. Apartment was compact but no issues. We stayed in the double room with partial sea view. Tiny balcony which can hold hold to plastic chairs. Lovely view of the sea no beach. I would certainly go back but pay extra for the full sea view. There is an elevator down to the beach which again was broken. Quite a climb up and down if not fit. You can access the beach walking along to old town and go there the tunnel. The apartment can be cleaned everyday but only asked for it to be cleaned a few times in the week. We respect the hard work of cleaning staff and where we are staying so never create a mess. Housekeeper and Receptionist we met were both lovely. We never used the kitchen which is down a flight of stairs. You do need fairly good mobility to use the apartment as the rest of the old town area. We will definitely be using Frentomar again.

Little gem on the Algarve
Extremely enjoyable stay at small hotel. The vibe was very relaxing and staff very friendly. The hotel was very clean and in a fantastic location next to beach. There are restaurants and bars nearby. I will return.
