One of the preferred option of many traveler is to use either a taxi, a shuttle or a limousine.
The costs are relatively inexpensive. A limo or a taxi are viable options for a couple or a small group because the costs are very similar to those of a shuttle or even public transportation and certainly more practical as they will take you right to your accommodation address.
Public transportation in Algarve is limited and can be inconvenient due to transfers and unless you are familiar with the area, you may find yourself dropped far from the final destination with all the luggage to carry.
One question my guests ask often when booking time at my apartments is if I can arrange for airport pickup.

The choice of bus might not be ideal unless you destination is the city of Faro and even than, you may be dropped far from your specific location. Also if more than 2 people traveling, it may not be cheaper. When traveling by bus, before you can go anywhere along the Algarve, you have to go into Faro City bus terminal and from there find a transfer to your destination.
