Myself and my girlfriend spent just 5 days in the Algarve booking a last minute break to get some sun and relax. We were here towards the end of August. We had read popular reviews about Scooby's before we left and knew it was just a short walk from where we stayed. We came here on day two, to spend... More

Recently came back from São Rafael and ate here twice. We were a big party and everyone felt that they had a good meal. The portions are generous (steaks were huge and raved about for days after) and freshly cooked. The staff were all so very helpful and happy. The genial host was about and smiling and welcoming to everyone... More

When arriving in Sao Rafael we was recommended Scooby's Pool Bar and we are so glad we visited it. Not once, not twice but three times. The first time was for a cheeky pint or two to check the place out with a friend. I then returned back to the family to let the kids know that Scooby's looks good!!... More

We arrived @ Scooby's 11.30 am, given a place to leave suit cases & all five of us had sun loungers next to the amazing pool. We had lunch ( very English snack... More

great day out for everyone - lovely deep pool but also has shallow pool for the kids. It is lovely to have a change from the villa pool and meet other people. We all love going here old and young alike and always stay all day long. Food great and staff are absolutely amazing!

As with most visitors Scoobys is aimed at people who are waiting to go home. They have a pick up service from your accommodation and luggage storage. Both of these are very useful to a lot of people. The pool is good and very deep. Our children really enjoyed it. It's rather scruffy inside and the food is very basic.... More
