It is situated on a cliff top overlooking the beach. All rooms at the back have a decent side sea view. My room was clean and comfortable.Sheets were changed twice a week and towels every other day. The mini fridge was noisy. I had to switch it off at night. Surprisingly there was no hair dryer in the room. There... More

Breakfast was very poor, worst coffee ever; I dared to eat the scrambled scrambled eggs; room was small, beds and matracess realy old and worn out; bathroom also very old and some days it horribly smelled from waste water. View and location is outstanding; the wonderfull beach is just at the backdoor, the pool is nice and quiet (in November)... More

Just got back from a week here, booked in quickly to room 207, there are no rooms overlooking beach but side rooms overlook the beach and inland, others overlook the pool area. After reading several mixed reviews we must have been lucky enough to have a good room as could not find any faults, the bed was comfy and changed... More

The location is ideal, great sea views, 5 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the "strip". Staff were helpful and friendly.The rooms are basic but you get what you pay for.Maid service... More

Travelled with 4 friends for a Monday to Friday birthday trip.Three of us stayed in one room and two in another.Didn't expect a thin camp bed for a third bed for an adult. Unfortunately no other room was available to put up for the third person in the room so we put up with it. The hotel on the whole... More

Terrible rooms is the main downfall. Entrance to the hotel is nice, staff are nice and that is the only reason its getting one star! The room is made up off two very hard, a safe that didnt have a lock, a very dirty bathroom and a TV that had one station! Once i walked into the room and seen... More

A large 3 star hotel, very adequately appointed on a beach location close to amenities and attractions. A large en suite room with huge balcony, well serviced (but unfortunately slight whiff of drains). Very good bar snack meal at reasonable extra price. Great breakfast: hot and/ or buffet. At the price, extraordinary value.

Spent 1 week over there with my husband and we really enjoy it. The location of the hotel is excellent: very close to a beach & sea, a few min away from cafes and restaurants and a bus stop to Portimao. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was basic, very clean but unfortunately without a kettle (I am tea... More

Spent a weekend in The luar over the 21 of September. A really good base, brilliant poolside atmospher and in the sun all day. Every level has a sun area which were hardly used. Cleaning daily, food basic but there are so many eateries that this is not a problem. We booked in late and left early, staff were always... More
