Ok, so I read many reviews here before going and was worried. But it worked out well for us and we had a great week. Weather was really good for 6/7 days. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. English excellent. We got a quiet ground floor room facing golf course as requested. Clean and well equipped. Cleaners came 4 days out... More

We spent 10 nights at these apartments and found them to be clean and welcoming. They are situated in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of night life. Yet, a 30min walk took you to Praia do Rocha and a 60 min walk to Alvor. Both towns were easily accessible by taxi for a small fee and... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel and we had a spacious one bedroom apartment with balcony. Our room was clean and there was air-conditioning. However, the room was very average and it could have used some serious redecorating/updating. The hotel is located around one kilometer from the beach and two kilometers from the beach avenue where most of the... More

The hotel was in desperate need of refurbishing - it was tired and needed a great deal of investment. Whilst the hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were excellent, the main pool was green with algae because the filters were not working and eventually the pool was closed for 3 days. The poolside showers did not work for a... More

We had a lovely one bedroom apartment on 1st floor between bar and entrance. The staff were all fantastic and friendly. The food in the snack bar was fantastic and reasonable. The bar didn't stick cola light but they did make nice cocktails. The kids club was practically non-existent and compared to other places I've stayed was a big let... More
