Stayed at Hotel Baia Cristal for the third time in June. Have been on holiday to Carvoeiro many times since 1985 - fantastic location, great restaurants, beautiful beaches. Back in September and hoping for room 430 again x

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

Came back after 3 years, specially requested a garden room and had room 208. This is on ground floor on the cliff with an uninterrupted view out to sea. Perfect again. Bath with shower over, twin beds pushed together, small seating area/coffee table. Plenty of storage space. Reception team very pleasant and helpful. Arranged for care hire people to come... More

My fiancé and I stayed in the hotel for a week in early July, bed and breakfast. Overall, we were very pleased. The room was nice and spacious with a lovely sea view (room 308). The staff were all friendly and happy to help. The breakfast is nice but not outstanding. There was plenty of choice and a variety of... More

We stayed at the Baia Cristal for 10 nights half board. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children. We had a fabulous time at this hotel. It was fairly quiet and everything we needed for a great family holiday. Hotel - It has everything you need, both outside pools are lovely, they are salt water but great... More

Stayed here on a family holiday, and the location was perfect, area is beautiful and beaches are superb. Just a short walk from the hotel and down some steep steps is a small coved beach which we liked the best, ideal for swimming. Hotel rooms were spacious, and cleaned nicely everyday. The hotel itself is of a good standard and... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon,1 year wedding anniversary and my husband birthday. I booked a room (double) through their website, but when we arrived they checked-in us in a room with 2 single beds pushed together. That was very disappointing. At least they had rooms to move us next morning. Beach is very close within walking distance, just I... More

We had a suite in the hotel, which was lovely - so much space, and very comfortable. We had breakfast included, which was very good - everybody is catered for. The staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The only downside was having to pay for the safe and WIFI - we really think that WIFI should be... More

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
