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

My husband and I stayed at this hotel earlier this year on an all inclusive basis. The hotel is fab if you are a golfer, but not so good if you are not - as it gets taken over by them. The hotel is in a good location with the marina within walking distance and so is the beach. The... More

Represents poor vfm in my opinion. Rooms were basic and in need of a facelift. Smooth, ceramic tiles in bathroom floor were plain dangerous. The safe box that's in the room was chargeable, most hotels don't charge nowadays. Breakfast was a joke as you had to queue for a solitary coffee (or hot water for tea) machine, which made it...

What really impressed us was the detail to keeping things clean,especially in the breakfast area,it was spotless. Paid the € 15 for the extra in room wifi for the... More
