Stayed here for a 'friends' golf holiday. Hotel pretty clean, food okay and service good. The rooms are a good size and pretty well presented. Very quiet at time of year visited (February). So mostly good. The only area that was less than perfect was a "drain" type smell in the entrance. It didn't detract from our stay but not... More

First impressions are important and ones impression when you arrive at reception are that it doesn't really give an impression of being a 4 star hotel. I changed rooms three times as although all the rooms are at the front of the hotel, being built in a semi circle, some rooms face North. The room I eventually got was facing... More

Lovely spacious Hotel. Friendly Staff, wonderful housekeeping, golfers galore. A meal in the Restaurant twice was lovely. A large Hotel with a personal feel to it. Well situated with 50 yards of the Marina and surrounded by restaurants.

The room (on floor 9) has air conditioning, balcony and en suite bath/shower facilities. It is average in appearance but presented in a clean and tidy condition. Plenty of hanging wardrobe space but drawers a little limited. An electric kettle is provided via reception. Room safe carries a small nightly charge and the mini bar is not free of charge... More

Stayed here early February 15 for 3 nights. Only two minutes walk from Vilamoura marina, where resturants and shops are. Hotel very clean. Room was spacious and also clean with a fabulous view of sea and marina. Only 5 minutes walk to the beach. We only stayed b&B. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order, and was plentiful, hot and tasty.We... More

The hotel had only reopened 2 days before we arrived. The part our party was assigned to smelt musty as though it had been damp. It was cold and it was very difficult to make the heating work I don't know the room cost as it was an arranged package. The breakfast buffet was very sparse compared to another recent... More

On the spur of the moment, we decided to have another holiday in Portugal so as we enjoyed our time here last time it was an obvious choice. This time it was very quiet owing to the end of the season, but we enjoyed it even so. Because the hotel had few customers, the breakfast was cooked how you wanted... More

I stayed here on business recently. The check in takes too long, no WiFi code when I check in so have to back down to get it and then find I have to pay. Rooms are OK but still twin beds. View and balcony is good. Carpets in public areas are near threadbare. Breakfast is very simple and the coffee... More

Stayed at the hotel on a golf trip in mid November. Hotel is clean but 3 stars at best. Breakfast was included in room rate but was not good. Good location as it is within walking distance to marina area. Hotel staff were very nice but put in bad position as they had to justify charging 2.50 Euros per day... More
