I booked this for a short relaxing break. On arrival we were greeted with a tour of the grounds in a golf buggy. We were impressed. It's even more beautiful than the photographs. The staff are very friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble although would have liked a bit more service at the pool. It was the week... More

We have stayed at this hotel every year for a 3 night break for many many years! Service wonderful, an oasis of calm. Facilities amazing. Is there any better on the algarve ... I don't think so!! Breakfasts amazing with view of cliffs and sea.

Went for a short break with my husband and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. Beautiful location, friendly staff, great weather and peaceful. The walk down to the beach is not that bad as mentioned in some reviews (maybe 30 steps) and if you don't want to or can't go to the beach, there are still 3 pools to... More

This hotel is beautiful and they are very accommodating, with great service although I feel I should point out some factors which would have made me think twice before booking the hotel if I'd have known; there are all saltwater non heated pools apart from one outdoor heated pool close to the spa which was still cold; there is no...

Everything about this place was stunning. Crystal blue waters at the private beach. Fabulous spa with a small (okay) gym. Optional activities that are health based: I chose two and had the best pilates teacher I have ever had. The pools are great with plenty of beds around - plus others on the beach - as well as giant relaxy... More

Wonderful hotel with beautiful gardens, a private beach with great views, numerous swimming pools, and tennis courts. The rooms are large and we were lucky to have a gorgeous view of the gardens and the ocean. The bathrooms are spacious, modern, and very clean. This is a great place for couples and families to relax in the sunshine. The only... More

Visited here last summer, one of the best resorts I have stayed in. Access to private beach as well as the food was outstanding. Can't wait to come back in the near future when I have some time off work!

This is an outstanding resort in the heart of the Algarve. Everything about this heavenly place exceeded my expectations. The rooms were large and comfortable, breakfast was a great combination of local flavors and international comfort food, dinner excellent. The gardens were absolutely stunning as were the "chill out" beds strategically placed with sea views. The spa is amazing and... More

We were staying in the hotel for four nights and never like(d) resort hotels. This one was very different and we really enjoyed the relaxing days. Very beautiful garden and private beach. Doesn't feel crowded at all. About 5 different pools. The sea is fantastic. Very friendly staff. The restaurant was good, but definitely not cheap. Breakfast was very good.... More

The hotel sits on a cliff overlooking a beautifaul sandy beach. The hotel facilities are excellent, the rooms generous and the dining to a very high standard. The staff, from front desk to beach attendants were all one would expect.We would certainly return
