Overall we liked it very much and would come back. The location is good, the nearby beach being much better than the one in Carveiro village. We really found the staff to be a delight, especially Valter!!!. We had good entertainment every evening except thursday. OK, the atmosphere is a bit sedate, it's not Club 18-30, and there were a...

Just far enough out of town to be quiet and close enough to stay accessible. Cabs are cheap if you don't want to walk and there is a free bus! Local restaurants are all good we didn't have a bad meal all week. The staff are friendly and Bruno makes a good effort, teaching me some Portuguese. We stayed in... More

I have to be honest about this so here goes. We arrived at the hotel at 9:30pm full of expectation after reading reviews on this site about this hotel. It turned out to be the opposite of what we thought & hoped. We asked reception where the shops were and we were informed that they were in town (vaguely pointing... More

Originally discovered on a secret escape, we enjoyed it so much we returned to stay again. The location of the hotel is about 15-20min walk out of Carvoeiro, meaning close enough to bimble in & out, & far enough to be quieter & secluded. Visiting either side of peak season it was lovely. The views are great & the pool... More

From the first moment we arrived to when we left everyone was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean as was the whole complex. We were all inclusive, the food was delicious, with a different selection every meal. Restaurant staff were very helpful nothing was too much trouble. Computer available to use, but Wi-Fi was an extra charge.

My freind and I stayed here for a few nights. It was a gorgeous property and a great price. However the food was extremely expensive and not very good(for the price). I can forgive that. The staff were unfreindly, we felt like we were constantly annoying them. They were very curt for some reason. Now, the day we went to... More

We stayed in this hotel from the 11th to the 21st of May. Gorgeous location helpfull staff and by far the best all inclusive deal so far. The food was lovely and was definately a step up form the canteen food normally associated with all inclusive packages. This is probably to do with the fact that the hotel is not... More
