By 9 am, usual towels in the deck chairs job Food... More

I recommend this hotel to all of you who understand the comparison between the price that you pay and the quality of accommodation. From my experience, I paid less than it deserved! The hotel is half way from Albufeira and Vilamoura, close enough to 3 beaches, next to restaurants and the bus station is within 1 minute of walk. I... More

Visited 15-22 July. It's a small hotel with three floors and a small pool. Despite this more often than not we could not get a sun bed and had to opt for a towel on the grass. The pool is also very small. The pool menu is limited to rolls (basically ham and cheese served with crisps) or a hamburger... More

The staff is quite helpful and the rooms are clean . Close to the two nice beaches in the area. But no power outlets in the rooms that is quite silly considering the number of electronics one has to recharge.

It's a lovely hotel. The location is a 30 minute walk outside the Strip so it's quiet but the town is easily assessible. It's a short walk to the beach. The hotel itself is clean and modern and the staff are lovely. There are some really nice restaurants beside it where you can get 4 courses for less than 10... More

Location: About 7 minutes by car to the Olhos D’Agua village and 10 minutes to Oura, this hotel is quite well placed. Also a minute away is an Indian restaurant (on the same side of the road as the hotel) and opposite this is another fairly good local restaurant which serves excellent fish Reception: Replete with very friendly staff, you...

No complaints, the rooms were clean and well decorated. Air-co, TV, fridge, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities. The staff were very helpful, courteous and friendly. Great location for a choice reasonably priced restaurants. Will definitely be going back.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this 'hotel' and I would not return or recommend it to anyone. I believe it markets itself as a 3 star hotel, however the level of service you DO NOT receive is disgraceful. I called reception from my room at 9.30am on our second day to request some milk be brought to... More
