This hotel is more a 3* than a 4*. The room we were allocated on check was very large, but the decor & furnishing were so dated & worn that the room appeared dark & dismal. The pillows were so flat they hardly created a bump in the bed & again the bathroom was very dark with an over bath... More

First glimpse of hotel showed little had changed other than the name (was the Garbe) Inside the entrance the main desk was in the same place with little alteration. We received a very warm welcome from the reception staff which made us feel at home. The staff in the restaurant were basically still the same people who like the rest... More

First visit to Portugal and as we were in the popular Algarve we expected busy streets and lively bars... However as it was just pre season it was in fact very quiet and peaceful..if you want to relax, enjoy the beach and have a quiet drink the hotel and area around is ideal. The hotel itself is more suited towards... More

A location for a (too) short break as visiting family, but lovely room made available to us due for which we are very grateful. The hotel is in a very good location on the beech with a small(ish) pool which does not have too many sun-loungers and although the hotel provides notices that the loungers cannot be 'reserved' when not...
