Try Alpha Rooms or Booking. Both have very extensice list of Hotels and Apartments in the Algarve and prices are excellent. We use them all the time and do a lot of travelling. Saved over 800euro last year when we used Alpha rooms to the Algarve.

i have just gotten a price from alpha rooms for about 1000 euro. the price direct from the resorts own website is almost double that. is this usual? can alpharooms deliver such huge savings or will i land at the resort and have no bed if i book with them??

My advice would be to have a look at www.holiday-rentals.co.uk or www.ownersdirect.co.uk or www.holidaylettings.co.uk You can pick up an apartment from €200 per week, maybe not for August but in these recessionary times you can negotiate. I have negotiated a one bedroomed apartment in Majorca from €250 to €200 just by asking. Forget these €1000 holidays. Purchase your flights to Faro direct then search for the best deal out there on the above sites. No reason why you cannot have a break for two people for less than €500 flights included.

€420 each seems expensive. Would you not consider going self catering in a private rental? What part of the Algarve are you going to? There is a good train service along the coast from the Faro train station.
