The hotel was great, the beach was huge with soft sand and a boardwalk the full length with bars and cafe's.There was plenty of places to stroll or sit and people watch.Getting out of the town by car took a bit of working out, but there were plenty of places around to visit. Night time was very quiet, not much... More

A few bars, shops, a couple of nice restaurants. Nice beach. Fairly deserted, but probably better during mid-summer.

Apart from above. PDR is the beach of Portimao which is a working town so apart from the lovely beach you have nice shops just over the hill in Portimao. Good transport links and reasonable prices. No starbucks as pretty much all coffee in the Algarve is excellent.

Nice place to stay during the winter since temperature is relatively high with sunshine. Not many interesting spots besides restaurants. A boulevard of approximately two km with many beaches just very nice to walk around, certainly for people who like to be at warmer places than home

We only stopped off for 20 mins while we were on an excursion. The beach was lovely! It was very quiet and quite breezy in March, but I imagine even better in summer.
