We have a studio apartment me and my boyfriend but I’m getting mixed reviews that everything is in one room not gonna be happy about that for 2 weeks ..can anyone please tell me please on what the rooms are like ..Thank you
Hi Suzanne, I have stayed at Rio Apartments 4 or 5 times now and have found the place okay for my needs. Obviously it`s not 5 star but clean and comfortable and within easy reach of the marina area and supermarket and bars close by.

Hi there me and my boyfriend are coming to stay on the 30th August we been told there’s no air conditioning in the self catering studios is it possible to rent a unit or a fan ? Also we are hiring a car from faro airport can you tell us if we can park at the complex and if it is free Thankyou
Hi Deb, There are limited fans available at the Rio Apartments so ask for one as soon as you arrive and hopefully there will be one available. Plenty of free parking directly outside the front of the complex.
