I choose that hotel based on the reviews and given the price I was really expecting a true 4 star hotel . I paid the price of a 4 star hotel but ended up in a 2 star hotel at the most . I travel a lot , about 5 times a year ,I am used to staying in 4/5... More

My husband and I are just back from Portugal after booking a last minute holiday and can't fault this hotel. The location was 5/10 minutes drive from Old Town Albufeira but this suited us as it was nice and secluded away from the craziness. The hotel provided a shuttle bus to/from Old Town so we got it every evening and... More

This hotel is generally ok, but we wouldn't go again. We had a superior room - those rooms overlook the pool area and have a larger balcony, the standard rooms have tiny balconies and overlook the car park. There was hardly any difference in price so if you do stay here go for the upgrade. The room itself was huge,... More

The room furniture might look a little outdated, the bathroom looks good, but some things were not working correctly, like the toilet flush button for example. The bed cushions are too soft, could be better. Location is decent enough, but a car is recommended, you will need to walk a little more to the S. Rafael Beach, but the coastline... More
