We went to this hotel on 20th to 24th April with secret escape, which we thought was a prestigious travel agent, unfortunately was very disappointed when we arrived. This is a villa with a tiny spa, 4 person tiny steam room, that I doubt it fits 4 but 2 persons. The indoor pool is so overheated as the jacuzzi fits... More

This is not what we would class as a hotel in fact it is a villa complex and as they have been unable to sell most of them they are offering it as hotel accommodation. The accommodation is first class and all Villa accommodation with an upper level and stairs - there is no accommodation in the club house, which... More

A beautiful complex with top quality accomodation. The villas are clean, modern, spacious and perfect for a group or family. The facilities are equally good and the staff are warm and friendly. We will definitely go back here!

It is peaceful and the shutters keep out the sunlight until you're... More

This is a great resort for peace and quiet in the sun and excellent value for money - we are here right now and can't fault it. Highly recommended, especially in low season at about £60 per night with breakfast. We have the cheapest option which is the deluxe suite and it's a 1000 sq. ft. house! The family suite... More

Not all drinks availble to AI guests and they use the cheep rubbish in the cocktails. Breakfast is a Buffett and is poor. Lunch was menu and this... More

let me start by saying I holiday very frequently, and can be quite critical of hotels which fail to make the grade. our week at this hotel was excellent value for money and a stress free break. Positives: the family suites are absolutely huge! We were very impressed with the quality of the suites. Staff are very good, and will... More

This is the second time we are here, and it's always a pleasure. Nice houses, lovely garden and nice location. Love the surroundings, with very calm spots nearby. It an excellent choice in the low season in Algarve.
