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

Beautiful resort-style hotel located in a fairly secluded spot but not too far to walk to visit other restaurants/bars or the nearest town. From the hotel restaurant and main pool there are dramatic views of the Algarve coast and sea. There is a beach with private sun-bathing beds and parasols, golden sand and clear waters. The beach is not totally... More

We have spent a lovely week here and it has been good but there is always room for improvement. The rooms are big and spacious but the cleaning per day is average. We have glasses with the smallest amount of water in them left for some reason. Maybe this is just a hotel policy but a plastic glass that is... More

Wow. I had read the reviews, and seen the pictures but not very often do you get to a hotel and it looks absolutely flawless. The grounds are beautifully looked after and it is a very natural setting. All three of us agreed that arriving at the hotel and seeing it for the first time was one of the best... More

Pros · Beautiful resort, well kept · Very nice beach · Very good breakfast Cons · Restaurant prices are on the silly side – a king crab salad starter for EUR15 gets you 2-3 small pieces of crab and some lettuce · Service around pools not great, had to walk over to bar to make orders many times · One...

Great hotel in a terrific locations. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Wonderful breakfast included in rate. Rooms were nice and spacious. Beautiful beach, but a bit of a walk to get to. Pools could have been warmer. We would definitely return.

Hotel is in beautiful surroundings with gardens and views out over the Atlantic. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfasts were fantastic with everything you could possibly want in the morning. Personally we found that the meal prices were a bit on the high side but, like other travelers, used the room service option which made it more manageable. Resort... More

We have just stayed for four nights and loved it. The rooms are big and in impeccable taste, the bathrooms excellent, the staff extremely friendly and properly trained, the gardens are gorgeous, the breakfast could not be better. Because of the layout you don't even realise how many people are staying: it's quiet and very peaceful. We had a room... More
