We stayed here while going to a family wedding. We had the 2 bed apartment. This was a great hotel and because it was early season it was not too busy. The grounds were kept well and the facilities were good. The only thing which would have been nice was if the outside pool was heated as we could not... More

This aparthotel has very good quality-price relationship. Our room/apartment was big enough, the kitchen was well furnished and there's nothing like having your breakfast looking at the amazing view the terraces offer. Praia da Rocha and Praia do Vau are within walking distance. But... The bathroom really needs to be renovated, and the wi-fi signal to be stronger in the... More

We have spent there 5 nights with a group, traveling threw Spain and Portugal and these were the most pleasant, relaxing and memorable. Situated between luxurious golf courses and close to spectacular beach it is rather far away from big shops and restaurants. But even you haven't a car you can easily take a taxi to a big shopping mall... More

My partner and myself stayed in these apartments for 7 night September past! We had the most amazing time it was our first holiday away together! We were nervous not knowing the area or anywhere to go! The staff at the hotel were so helpful they provide information on day trips that you can book through them, which saved us... More

Situated just away from Praia da Rocha and Alvor, but within easy reach of both, this is a good base to stay for this area. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Our room was a good size, and the facilities, for self-catering, adequate. The addition of a chopping board, a small sharp knife and bigger glasses than just wine... More

This hotel is one of the best in its class. It has undergone extensive renovations making both public areas and apartments first rate. This is a reasonable priced hotel that could compete easily with any 4 star hotel both for facilities and customer service. The stunning beach is a 10 min walk away and 2 major resorts within 30 min... More

Arrived here after 4 days of turmoil with a double booking so a little apprehensive. This quickly disappeared. Staff are truly amazing and couldnt do enough for you, Linda is an amazing receptionist, very friendly and just completely relaxed us. Rooms are large enough with more than ample amenities to enjoy your stay. If I was really picky (which I... More
