My parents, boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days in July 2014. We had two rooms, really spacious, big beds, good storage and bathroom. We were on all inclusive which was great, the bands were bright green when we were there though and they were vile to wear... I wish they could think of a better way to do... More

The hotel is beautiful and the deluxe suites are out of this world. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful and are excellent at their jobs. The location is brilliant for the view, walking could be a problem but thankfully the hotel puts a free bus private bus on to the old town and to the beach multiple times a... More

The hotel rooms are very modern with a huge bed, big flat screen TV and a nice walk-in shower with a big shower head.

Just spent 10 days at the hotel with my husband and two children. Can't fault the hotel at all for cleanliness. The food every meal was lovely and the pool side food was amazing considering it was a Buffett. A lot to choose from so the children were kept well fed at all times. Although my children didn't officially join... More

What was supposed to be a relaxing holiday turned out to become a real nightmare. By phone, they told they would put us in a certain type of room in the higher floors and actually put us on the floor below the reception. Cleanliness is poor. Employees with no minimum training in hotel sector and also rude. When we asked... More

A first class hotel in a beautiful area of Portugal. The hotel is located away out of the main town, but with a free shuttle bus 3 times a day, this was no problem. There is a beautiful beach just less than 10minutes walk away. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and efficient, making your stay very special. Food is... More

We had a week's holiday at this hotel. My husband booked it for our 25th wedding anniversary and we had a room with a lovely sea view and a large balcony.

This all inclusive hotel was excellent. We had a standard room which was good - comfortable beds and pillows. There were 4 of us - myself, husband and 2 daughters 19 and 15.
