This is always a must a few times when we come to Portugal. Lovely staff and service at Scooby's, really make us feel welcome. The place is clean and tidy, the pool is lovely, the food is yummy.

Great vibes . Scooby was quite possibly the nicest individual ever and couldn't do anything more for you this coupled with such a friendly atmosphere makes the place hard to beat. Even sorted out our transfers for the airport. From the lads

Great service from Scooby's this week - used as taxi and take-away and neither let us down. Timely, good, friendly service, always available, and recommended. Thanks from Casa Risonho!

Went on a vacation with a couple of friends when the owner of this restaurant helped us to find our villa (we were just driving around looking to find it). When we got to our villa, he gave us a number for his taxi service. In no less then 15 minutes he picked us up all week, so that made... More

Nothing is too much trouble for the team there and the place is really clean and tidy. The pool is clean, deep and has a slide for the... More
