Having read somewhat mixed reviews and in the voucher system, we didn't really know what to expect, but we very pleasantly surprised. The standard of the deluxe suite we booked was excellent - more like a 2 bed town house / villa, with separate bathrooms and downstairs WC, kitchen (all Bosch equipment) and large lounge -diner. Not sure about the... More

The villa was more than we expected, absolutely beautiful, staff brilliant especially Ana, the food you couldn't fault, all the staff very friendly and helpful, Joao, was another that was very helpful, the only thing that let this place down was no evening entertainment, and the staff overworked, one staff for restaurant and bar, might of been because season just...

I've been in this place several times and, so far, I loved it. I was prepared to go once again this month and bought vouchers as usual. But when I was booking I was informed that the rules changed: now we have to share a house with another family (where you have no privacy at all and it is not... More

Overall a good resort, can not fault nearly all the staff (ANA at breakfast was a joy!) grumpy waiter was not! Accommodation is spacious, very clean, and housekeeping are friendly. The resort is compact and easy to get about. The food, we only had breakfast, good choice and ok standard. The bar service was slower than other bars but friendly... More

My wife & I have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel. I cannot fault anything at all. The 'room' is actually a fully furnished house right down to the tea spoons. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering should you choose and kitted out with top quality Bosch appliances including a dishwasher & washer/drier. Two bedrooms... More

Pleasant place to 'chill out'. Relaxed and pleasant hotel Two points : 1) Needs a bar ~ drinking in a restaurant is not the same. 2) Could do with an armchair in room ~ mine didn't have one. Didn't really notice 'smell' mentioned by others. Some good local cafes near by ~ opposite hotel ~ to eat good cheaper food... More

Excellent accommodation, couldn't fault the apartment, very well appointed. Stayed on B&B, breakfast was good value, shame about the coffee, would have liked a better quality. Bar service slow, but we were in no hurry so not a problem. Staff very helpful. Recommend hiring a car as the complex is a 30 min walk from Carvoeira centre.

Overall very nice place, accommodation very luxurious. Was on an AI break, but the club house and restaurant very quiet, as we think all people staying were on a B & B or SC basis. The AI option was very good with food cooked to order from an al a carte menu. The shrimp salad and steak were to die... More

We stayed in a deluxe apartment that was actually a house with the ability to sleep 6 people. Two bedrooms both en suite and a sofa bed in the lounge area. Fully equipped kitchen with good quality crockery and glassware. Lovely aspect over the gardens with a pond area and singing frogs. Sea view off the balcony. We stayed on... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights on an all inclusive deal. We were both very impressed with the size of the room. Which was more like a villa with a lounge, dining area and kitchen downstairs and a very large double bedroom upstairs with en suite and walking wardrobe. The whole place was very clean and tidy...
