The Scoobys vehicle turned up promptly and we had a very enjoyable... read more

Scooby's has a beautiful pool and plenty of outdoor seating - and crazy golf. It is also spotlessly clean with pleasant staff and well presented food. Very family friendly.

Unfortunately the night we visited it absolutely tipped down, so we did not get to enjoy the facilities or really see them, so can only refer you to other reviews. That said the staff are extremely friendly (Simon) and it is noted that they offer to take you home (and pick you up). You can enjoy their facilities if you... More

Stayed in nearby Gal'e, was at Scooby's several times and the friendliness and food was second to none, what a fantastic place to go, I would recommend this establishment as a must for everyone to visit whilst in the Algarve, our grandkids loved it. thank you all for all your help whilst we stayed there.

OK, let me start by pointing out that this is not a gourmet restaurant but a very friendly, very helpful bar. All of the staff couldn't do enough for us. We had stayed at a villa a few miles up the road and had been told that we could store our bags at Scooby's during our leaving day (we had... More
