This hotel deserves Its 5t status. It is a really nice place to stay. The staff are very helpful and the management are very hands on. They introduced themselves at the welcome meeting and they were at the door of the dining room to meet and greet guests every evening. Very friendly. The hotel is very clean, spacious and the...

We stayed here from 15th April until 20th April, I was a bit disappointed with the location of the room as we had asked for a garden or sea view (as recommended) our room was above very noisey fans !! Food was good and we took advantage of the Champagne breakfast which was quite refreshing. The beach was beautiful and... More

This hotel was truly fabulous. The location of the hotel was amazing. It's perched up on a cliff with the most amazing views out over the ocean. There is a set of wooden steps down to the beach, there are resting platforms along the way with benches if you need to stop for a rest. Once on the beach, it... More

Stayed April 2014 and also February 2013, both times were great. Location is really good with the choice of four very interesting beaches/coves within walking distance (smaller coves do involve some tricky navigation of rocks!). Walking to Villamoura was lovely along beach and cliffs, it's quite a way though! Food superb, the choice is amazing and quality excellent, restaurant staff... More

It's all been said by other reviewers. The positives completely outweigh any minor negatives. Immaculately clean and well run hotel. Food excellent and varied. Location absolutely stunning. A very relaxed and civilised hotel. I do like a hotel where the residents don't think that getting dressed for dinner means putting on your very best football shirt. In fact I didn't... More

We thought the Thomson flight and transfers were great. We did have to wait 20 mins as one of the guests had a lost case, totally understandable. Arrived at the hotel and was checked in very quickly. The transfer on the way back was delayed but only because some guests understood "coach leaves at 11" to mean, "turn up at... More

I can only confirm what other people have written, this was a brilliant hotel and I would not hesitate to return. If I was to rate my experience on the Thomson's part of the journey, sitting on the coach for 1.1/2 hours then needing to queue to check in for almost an hour, return coach being delayed for 30 minutes,...

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel, we booked a garden view room which was on the side of the hotel that overlooked the town, it was just about a garden view if you looked over the balcony more a view of the houses. The hotel was lovely but I agree the check in process... More

We booked via Thomson only two weeks before travelling and arrived on the 6th April 2014 for one week. Transfer with Thomson was terrible - we got out of the airport 15 minutes after landing, but had to wait over 1.25 hours before the coach left for the hotel with other later arriving guests leaving for the hotel before us....

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Riu Palace Algarve in Portugal. We stayed for 1 week and of course it helped that the weather was superb for the time of year. However, the quality of facilities were superb and the service from hotel staff was excellent, with nothing too much trouble for them. The room was... More
