We are a family of three arriving in Faro on the 4th of September at 11 p.m. at night and are looking for an apartment in or around Faro for 12 nights. Can anyone recommend an apartment at a reasonable price. Our budget is around Euro 300/week. Any recommendation or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I was in Faro late last year. I arrived late at night and rather than paying for a very expensive taxi ride to my resort, stayed near the railway station overnight in a basic place I had paid good money for.

One night was more than enough for me in such a gray and drab area (I had a walk around some of Faro next morning before taking the train westwards). It's all pretty much the same.

You would be better off staying in a place like Lagos and you can visit Faro any time by train or bus.

For accommodation try:

Use the Hotel Only option and the price that comes up is each person. The lowest price I found was £112 each for a week in Lagos (for good accommodation by the beach), so about 380 euros.

You have left it VERY, VERY late and it is still the high season so for 300 euros you might get some poor hostel in Faro.
