Good location for praia da Rocha and Alvor. The weather was top! Children could play outside. Hotel is big and so are apartments, we had a two bedroom apartment. Good for large families or groups. Everything is large (for a change), wardrobes, beds, bathrooms, etc. Really nice breakfast with all fresh fruit, eggs, sausage, coffee, tea, and tasty also :)... More

Seven years ago, my wife an I visited this hotel for our honeymoon. We had a wonderful time and can remember that this hotel was pleasant enough. The room was clean and well maintained and the facilities were up to a reasonable standard. Whilst we were there, we had an issue with a faulty cooker. After reporting the issue to... More

A very quiet and peaceful stay. This is a large place with a big hotel feel to the place (in a good way), I especially... More

The paint at the bottom of this stairwell was also bubbling and peeling off. When we went to take a shower the tap came off in our hands and... More

We stayed in a privately owned apartment in this complex, which was very nice indeed, the whole complex seemed well run and the staff helpful. The only complaint I would have was the appalling behavior of some of the British guests who seemed to think it acceptable to party or carry on loud conversations between balconies (2 floors apart) until...
