Hotel must is in need of a refresher turn. The rooms are spacious: dining area, kitchen, 'living' and separate bedroom: ok but basic. The breakfast is rather poor. Algarve is full of orange trees, but at breakfast no fresh orange juice is served ...

Great value for money. Spotlessly clean and up to date. We only used the Hotel as a self catering base but can't really fault the place. There was work going on every day but it was November and I expect it.
