We stayed from the 5th to 13th August, we really enjoyed our stay.staff were friendly and enjoyed a good chuckle. Food was of good standard and there was always plenty to choose from. We always managed to find sunbeds and didn't feel that people reserved them unnecessarily. Check in was easy and straight forward. I'm flabbergasted at comments recently put... More

Customer Service seems to be the biggest issue for this hotel. Myself, Wife and two kids (7 and 5) arrived in late July. We had to wait for over an hour until the check-in time, however, this came and went and no-staff approached us from reception until we had to go back. Small kids looking out at a pool and... More

We went for a week's all inclusive holiday with two kids aged six and three at the end of July 2015. The hotel was so welcoming with staff fluently speaking about four different languages. There were quite a lot of Portuguese and German guests as well as British. The accommodation was lovely and very clean with lovely pools and well... More

This Hotel is clean and comfortable the rooms are very spacious. The decor is a little dated could do with a refurb. Aside from this is in a good location to Town and Beaches and this was our second visit. The courtesy bus could run for longer for people not on an all inclusive basis. The spa is a must.

The hotel is set in a quiet location fairly near to 2 beaches and close to Carvoeiro town. I chose this hotel because of the spa facilities advertised on the website. I had an early flight so arrived to check in at lunch time. My room was spacious and clean, with a balcony which had a sea view. Twin beds,... More
