Stayed here with my son (8) my sister and her partner (30's) in the Easter holidays. It was my 2nd visit to the Algarve, previously staying in Albufiera 2 years ago. I much preferred this location, a lot quieter and would return to this hotel in a heartbeat, we all agreed we wouldn't even research different hotels for our next... More

Having worked in the Algarve for a UK tour operator a few years ago, this is my ideal hotel to return to with family and friends. The hotel's location is perfect - right on the beach and in the centre of town - but definitely not noisy. The staff are a credit to the hotel; many of them are still... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here last July and it was really nice and great value, we asked for a room on a high floor before we left and they gave us the room on the top floor and it was huge with a nice view of the sea. The location of this hotel is excellent right on the sea... More

We stayed in this Hotel from 19th - 26th March. The resort itself was fairly quiet, due to being early in the season and prior to Easter. The Hotel is located on a pedestrianised promenade, ideal for an after dinner stroll. There was some refurbishment works taking place during our stay, however, this did not inconvenience or interrupt our stay.... More

Stayed here for a week on a room only basis. We decided not to upgrade to a seaview room and used the money saved to put towards our evening meals. This meant being allocated a room which had yet to be upgraded and refurbished. The room was adequate and clean including the bed and bedding although the other soft furnishings... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my partner in August 2014. Initially worried about it being 'school holiday' season and packed with holiday makers we were both really pleasantly surprised. Always free sunbeds despite the time of year and modest sized pool area, beach access straight from the back of the hotel and right in the midst of the town... More

On the whole good value for money. We spent three nights in the hotel for a short break away from work in Lisbon. The staff were welcoming and all spoke excellent English. The room was comfortable, newly refurbished and clean. Only complaints here are that the toiletries, biscuits and water weren't restocked after the first night and when we returned... More
