The room we were allocated had cockroaches and was very outdated with old dirty furniture. When we complained to reception they were not bothered, they sent a... More

We booked 9 months in advance. VERY UNHAPPY with the condition and location of this hotel. Not what was described in the Jet2 brochure. The rooms... More

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
