Visited seven times now and it never fails to provide us with a relaxing holiday, good food and fantastic weather. All locals are always welcoming, friendly and happy to speak English.

Lovely, family resort in the Algarve. Beautiful beach and not in the least bit commercialised. Nothing to dislike.
