We stayed here for a week all inclusive and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The resort was well kept, our apartment had beach views and the grounds were pleasant. The swimming pool was lovely and big with a bridge over which had water jets coming from underneath it and seats for dinner above it, that was a nice touch. We were slightly... More

Its around €12 for taxi to Albufeira and we just walked to the other towns close by. Beach is only 300 meters... More

We were staying in a Villa fairly close by and I went there to see if they knew anyone that would do car hire services. The receptionist was very helpful and even went to the trouble to call the car hire company and get them to come and pick me up to discuss contracts. While I waited she kindly said... More

Dave-Loretta. We had a great relaxing holiday and thought the staff, service, food and apartments and the magnificent pool were better than some 4 star hotels. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the rooms were well cleaned and spacious. Pity there was no evening entertainment but we met a lovely family from Liverpool which filled in this...

Great value apartments with extremely friendly staff, a lovely pool area and sports bar. We went all inclusive and there was a very good choice of food, much of it cooked freshly to order. Soft drinks available all day and good choice of beer, wine and spirits from 1pm.

I'll start with the pluses. Excellent staff at all levels,very clean all areas and very good food if somewhat repetitive after a couple of days,the snacks between 3pm to 6pm are nice. I stayed at the apartments but wished I had booked into the Hotel as it was decidedly better with balcony's overlooking the pool. the studio flats have no... More
