Our second time here as a family and we stayed in a superior room on the ground floor. Found the staff most pleasant, reception were really attentive and willing to please, cleaner came everyday to change towels (def not threadbare) and tidy up and there was always a gardener around tidying up the beautiful mature garden. The pool beds and... More

Pool dirt at the bottom and used cans and plastic tumblers, knives and forks not cleared away by staff. Staff seemed under pressure as there was a severe lack of staff. Paid for half board only ate boiled eggs and fruit... More

The male reception staff were not very friendly or welcoming. The quality of the food was very poor although the waiters were friendly and did an excellent job. The room was clean but basic. There were a lot of package holiday guests (which is probably where the good reviews are coming from). All in all, not a very pleasant stay.

Very nice setting at the end of Praia de Luz.had booked a suit, and got a separate area with a couch. Got checked in to room early, which was a bonus as able to get unpacked and down to pool by lunchtime. Room cleaned and towels changed every day. Room was clean and spacious although beds were uncomfortable with rubber... More

Downsides - When we arrived at 1pm, our rooms weren't ready. Subsequently, we had to change clothes in a toilet. - Big ant problem in the room and seemingly no urgency to solve it from the staff. The man on reception simply said: 'they are after the food.' - Lack of decent towels. - Orange juice at breakfast isn't orange... More

Room was clean and beds comfortable, maid service was every day and also towels replaced then, but they were rather thin and threadbare . We had a slight ant... More

We stayed here last week. The rooms are large and cleaned to a good standard daily. However the towels were quite threadbare. The wifi was a complete non starter and after having paid the €15 for the week, we couldn't get it to work in the room. We went back to reception to be told it only works in the... More
