Excellent swrvice... 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

I stayed here out of season for two weeks, first week was in a studio and then I changed over to a one bed apartment. Both where modern and clean with basic cooking facilities available. 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

We were sold this holiday as a 4* and that it deffinetly was not! Our apartment (137) was full of dampness and the lights on the adjacent stairwell did not work. 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...

Had a lovely stay in estrela do vau. Had a lovely clean and quite spacious apartment. Hotel staff were very friendly and so helpful.nice pools onsite and hotel only a short stroll to vau beach which is stunning. Also only €6 taxi journey to praia de rocha which offers fantastic dining and night life. Will definitely rebook.

Stayed here for the first time in September this year. The rooms were clean and reasonably well maintained, worth noting there is no oven in the kitchen and its rather short of cooking utensils compared to other self catering places I have stayed. Also there was only one socket in the kitchen so had to keep unplugging one item to... More
