The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on! We couldn't get up in the mornings as it was too comfortable!! Breakfast buffet has a very good selection for everyone. Food selection at... More

For a cheap getaway in early October, I was really taken aback by the quality of not only the hotel, but the professionalism of the staff. The huge reception prepares you for the slick, stylish and clean vibe that this hotel exudes. The staff will go out of their way to help you with anything that you need. I experienced... More

We spent seven nights in this hotel and I have to say it represented amazing value for money. The rooms are large and spacious. The hotel has ample amenities for a relaxing pool or beach holiday. The beach is a short stroll away. The only negative point I would give is that we were very disappointed with our view from... More

We've been in this hotel twice last year and loved the quiet moments nearby the swimming pool - this year the experience was quite different as it is much a mass hotel with no one helping to manage the deck chaises in the swimming pool that some guests reserved with towels (from Saturday to Sunday there wasn’t even no one...

This hotel is in a great location, a few minutes walk from a nearly private beach. Has a couple of great pools and grounds. The staff are very good and helpful, and the whole place is spotlessly clean. The only let down was the hotel claimed to have 3 or 4 restaurants, but didn't (some were closed) there was a... More

My wife and myself stayed here 06-13 July 2014. Hotel decor and cleanliness is first rate and the staff are very pleasant and helpful with excellent English spoken by all. The location is beautiful and very quiet with a short walk to two amazing beaches and also only a short taxi or bus trip into Albufeira. The only (minor) noise... More

Other wise the hotel is gorgeous, staff wonderful, breakfast is good,coffee is hard to get refilled, A little walking distance to the beach, but beaches are gorgeous, pools are all nice. Food at the pool is also very good, same goes for drinks,... More

We were looking for a relaxing, peaceful getaway and that's exactly what we got. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were modern and clean and the roof terace bar a great place to relax after dinner. Only downside was that there were a couple of wedding whilst we were there so we could not use the al-le-cart... More
