I visited this hotel in September with my husband and our friends. Verry nice place, friendly stuff, and a beautiful beach. Good and tasty food, large suite with a spectacular view. Not far from the Sao Rafael beach. We had a great time in this place.

Just returned from a 7 night golfing holiday. This hotel was a real disappointment in terms of meeting expectations of a five star. The biggest criticism I have is the food, as previously stated getting a hot meal at breakfast or dinner proved most elusive. The bright spot that stopped this review being even more critical is the A La... More

Overall this is a nice hotel in a quiet area, except at weekends when the hen parties or golf weekenders arrive. But it is nowhere near the standards for a 5 star hotel, more like a 3+ or a 4 star. The food was disappointing. Breakfast and lunch were very good but the evening buffet was poor. It did improve... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel as the staff are very accommodating. Our booking agent messed up our booking but the reception staff found a room and made sure we felt welcome. The hotel served lovely food, it did get repetitive, but they were of good quality. The restaurant area was nice with the option of Mediterranean or a... More

We just returned from a 10 night all-inclusive stay and are very disappointed. It was nowhere near 5* level. The buffet had the basic same food every day, service was poor. Small things that you would definitely not expect in a 5* establishment: having to queue in the mornings to make your own toast at breakfast, no teaspoons on the... More

Just returned from a short 4 night break at this hotel. Whilst the hotel is clean, bedrooms very spacious and swimming pools good, the food is, in my opinion lacking to say the least. No matter what time you went into the restaurant the food was at best lukewarm! At breakfast there was no egg station, so the fried eggs... More

I've been to better 3star all inclusives. Dinner every night was tuna pizza and fruit pizza. Terrible food. Drinks are not all inclusive for the majority only selected drinks. No atmosphere and not much happening about the hotel. Nearest shop is 40minutes walk away. Much too far. Would not go back to this hotel if it was for free. Not... More

Ok, as with all my reviews I will be 100% honest and try to cover everything. We booked through Sunshine.co.uk for this holiday, and opted for private taxi service, and extra leg room on out EasyJet flight, and I have to say it was well worth it on both counts. Once we arrived at Faro airport we collected our luggage... More
