This was our second time at CS Atlantic, having previously visited when it was exclusively Thomson / first choice. At that stage it was an adults only resort, but now it welcomes families. We were unaware of that when we booked, but that wasn't the hotels fault. It does mean that relaxing by the pool can be tricky if kids... More

This is a very nice modern design hotel. The pool area and especially the beach are fantastic. Be sure to investigate the room location if you want an ocean view. It is one of those hotels that you sometimes go down for a better view. We had a garden and a little bit of ocean view, but the balcony was... More

This was out first visit to Portugal so we were a little unsure of where to stay but chose the CS Atlantic based upon its modern looks and amenities. The hotel was very modern, set in landscaped grounds but after that we were a little disappointed. We booked full board, but were left very disappointed by the lunch selection and... More

First half of August 2014 we stayed at this hotel. A beautiful, recently renovated/ rebuild, accommodation. Nice pool area, great breakfast buffet and direct access to the beach. Rooms were tasteful, clean and nice. We stayed in a suite on the fourth floor (highest level) and enjoyed the room and the view every minute. Frontdesk, housekeeping and F&B people are... More

Set in beautiful gardens, nice pools, lovely boardwalk to beach. Rooms great with English Tv channels and the best shower ever. Comfortable large bed. Breakfast and dinner good for half board with lots of choice. Drinks (wine) reasonable. Stayed for just two nights to escape building work. Perfect antidote to dust. Highly recommend this relaxed modern hotel.

Having never been to the Algarve we relied a lot on TA reviews to choose a hotel. Wanted one close to beach, near but not too close to Albufeira, and good for parents and 20-something's. On that note I think we achieved our goal. It's pretty there, and quiet. Breakfast and lunch were good, but the same things everyday make... More

Working myself in a 5 star hotel since a couple of years and having a lot of knowledge in the luxury hotel industry I must say that this hotel is more of a 3-4 star hotel. Their Wifi is a joke. It could not get any slower. I agree with other travelers that uploading or sending a picture to someone... More
