Just back from a wonderful holiday - everything was amazing. The facilities, the food, the friendliness and helpfulness of staff, the views from the room and pool area and the weather. we can't wait to go back.!

The only waiter who is friendly and who understands customer service is a very young chap with glasses. The rest are sullen men who literally do the minimum required. Did not bother eating in the inside restaurant, Rooms nice and a good size.... However i am dissapointed in this 4 star hotel...if you compare it to a 5 star place... More

My boyfriend and I decided on this hotel because we liked that it was close to the beach and was in a quiet location. As it was my first time abroad I did plenty of research and read a lot of reviews, at first I was a little worried as the reviews were a mix of negative and positive. We... More

Spent 4 nights in this hotel and was not impressed at all. The rooms look okay for a beach hotel, and they were clean. However the isolation of the rooms is horrible, you can hear people on the upper floor dragging the chair in the room, trough the door you can hear EVERY noise coming from the hallway: cleaning ladies...

We have just returned from the Pestana Viking Hotel in the Algarve, following a 10 night holiday. The hotel is well laid out, very clean, and the staff are very helpful (happy to arrange tours, and pro-actively suggest alternative tours that they think might be of interest). The pool area is large and there are plenty of loungers and parasols... More

Music around the pool bar would have been nice and indeed the evening musical entertainment was, at best, insipid. Food good , buffet style , plentiful , but mass catered. Didn't realize , but the swimming pool is a... More
