The apartments themselves are perfectly adequate for self catering. The beach out in front of the apartments is probably one of the best in the Algarve. Outside of the apartments there is very little in terms amenities, restaurants etc. The pool area is fine but could do with a good cleaning. Wifi is only available in public areas which is... More

Very much enjoyed our stay here , apartments were spotless and spacious which is always a bonus. No shoebox apartments here. We paid extra for the seaview & were glad we did. Beds very clean but a bit on the hard side ( isn't it just as easy to buy comfy beds as hard ones!!) Just a minor detail overall.... More

The hotel has a short path leading down to a superb beach. It is about a mile from the busy Praia da Rocha beach and amenities, but there are limited cafes, bars and restaurants in the immediate area. We stayed in A block , which overlooks the gardens, pools and beach, and has the additional advantage of being furthest away... More

We stayed in a two bed apt which was very spacious for 3 adults and two children. The sofa bed wasn't very comfortable though. This is a good 3 star hotel but I don't think it deserves 4 stars. The bar/ restaurant is dingy and depressing and the pool bar closes at 6pm. In June? The onsite mini market is... More

Location is great, just a few meters from the beach. If you want just pay the extra and have the sea view, its worth it. Pool is big and good, amenities are good, nothing fancy but really don't need to be. Parking is private so that is a good extra, specially on summer time. Apartment is not very big, but... More

The weather was fantastic and as you are right on the beach it is pure heaven. The hotel restraunt is excellent and... More

My husband & stayed here in June 2013 and we really enjoyed our stay. The standard of accommodation was very high and really comfortable. The location was perfect with a short walk to beach where there are some lovely beach side restaurants. It is a quite location however its only a short taxi ride away from Alvor and Praia Da... More
