We have recently returned from the Baia Cristal Beach Hotel in Carvoeiro, Algarge on a bed and breakfast basis. The hotel staff were welcoming and very helpful and showed us to a very pleasant room 247 on 1st floor which was overlooking the car park. Our room comprised of 2 comfortable single beds, a sitting area, 2 wardrobes - 1... More

Good location, near beach, nice setting, friendly staff. Nice rooms, good bed, clean. Problems with toilet flushing got fixed immediately. OK restaurant but many other good places to eat nearby. Our room had a small kitchen facility included.

It is a hotel with a lot of caring service. Everything is up to date. The food is high quality cuisine with portuguese elements. Pure food, the cook Fernando is a very good chef who likes to please you with a lot of his specialties, which make dinner an excellent experience.

Spacious rooms, friendly staff, all amenities are there. Walking distance to beach. Buffet and a la carte menu offers value for money. Wine selection could be better with so many nice Portuguese wines to choose from. Advisable for short breaks and longer stays.

This hotel simply is what it says 'on the tin'. Situated on the top of the cliffs with stunning views of the sea. located within walking distance of the beach and a range of restaurants.

It seems the more expensive the hotel is, the more likely they are to charge for Wi Fi. E4.50 for 24 hours is not a lot but in a smaller hotel it would be complimentary. Apart from that, the room I stayed in was pleasant and the buffet breakfast and dinner were well presented and tasty. Did not use the... More

We are currently here on our honeymoon and are amazed at the beautiful surroundings, although room 255 looks onto the carpark it is not an unpleasant view and very quiet.

A lovely, little gem of a hotel in a wonderful area. From the moment we arrived at 1.30am the service we received from the staff couldn't be faulted. The snack waiting in the room was a lovely touch, though maybe a drink per person instead of one carton of Orange juice between us would have been better. The room was... More
