4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Just returned from a 5 night break with my sister. A lovely little hotel hidden away in a peaceful and tranquil area.Lovely balconies with beautiful views of the surrounding area. Very clean with comfy beds but the pillows need reviewing. A very simple breakfast but the fresh bread is lovely.

Maria and her son that checked us in are lovely people very warm and genuine.
There is a lovely little pool area with plenty of beds, the pool is small and very cold but good on a very hot day.

The only negative was checking out on the last day my sister returned the safe key which required a 5 euro deposit which we paid to Maria's son when he checked us in and I must say what a lovely guy. Anyhow because we were not issued a receipt the father Maria's husband was not very pleased about returning our money for some reason. We obviously got the key when we paid the deposit. We did feel a bit uncomfortable at his reaction.

Any how would we go again! definately.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony

My 3rd visit to this hotel in 3 years. Every year the building is improved showing the dedication required for continual success and it's is not expensive to stay here. See the reviews for local amenities. This is a family business, and the more times I visit this place the better I like it. It is unsuitable to children but great for couples/friends who want a chill out holiday. It has a bar, serves food, (breakfasts are traditional but if you want and English breakfast you can get one at a lovely little café 3 minutes walk from the hotel), has a pool and sunbathing facilities. Bedrooms have balconies, fridges showers and some have baths, safe locks and air-con is a little extra. Sunshades are available to borrow if you want to go down the beach. For those who want to visit the Algarve there are plenty of trips/adventures/ available to book from the hotel (Brochures available), or the local excursion shops. The staff have never tried to sell anything to me but always been very helpful and courteous whenever I needed help, and are on call throughout the day. Any little problems that you may have are resolved without any problem just say. You can dine in or out its not expensive. The town is spread around the road from Albufeira and has numerous cafes, shops newsagents and some supermarkets. There is a top beach with few amenities and the main beaches which are a 20 minute walk away, through the town and down the hill at the traffic lights. Directions to the long beach are available from the staff. Most of the prices have gone down in the area from last year except the taxis, but then the fuel has risen by quite a lot (15%) according to a taxi driver. I'm finding Olhos a better resort than Albufeira, but its each to their own. Every time I've been to this hotel there are always people there on a repeat visit (says it all). See also my last years review.

Room Tip: I would like to try all the rooms. each room has its own individuality, They are easterly southerly...

My bf and I stayed for 10 nights, it was a good area near the town but not central so it was quite. The hotel was full of couples no kids. There is a bar & snacks. The breakfast is ok nothing special but does the job. The pool is small but good perfect for a dip in the heat. Supermarket & several restaurants v.close to the hotel. 3miles from albuferia taxi are roughly €7. The couple running the hotel are v.friendly and happy to help.

Had a 2 week holiday there end of May/June. The rooms had been up dated from last year. Cleaned each day by a wonderful lady called Maria. We received a warm welcome. Pool was clean, the surrounding garden was beautiful. We were sorry to come home, going back next year, a lot of the people we spoke to will be doing the same.

Lovely small hotel with a pool. The room was fresh & clean, the hotel is a family business & all staff were very friendly. Simple buffet style breakfast was pleasant, food is available throughout the day at reasonable prices too. 10 minute walk to the wonderful beaches. Lots of bars & restaurants around the corner. My husband & I had 3 days here and we intend to go back. Lovely area to stay too.

Room Tip: Supermarket around the corner. Take teabags or coffee as they are not supplied in the room

We have just come home from a holiday in Algarve-our first in Portugal.What a wonderful part of Europe.We had great weather and enjoyed our holiday from the first minute we come.The little hotel is nice with a wonderful garden,nice family take care of us all.But some small things we must mention,the room was allways very clean,but the pillows were terrible,so hard and not made for Norwegian heads-try to change them.
Breakfast could be better-we had gladly paid a little moe,just ham,cheese,jam the whole week-what about eggs,omelette or bacon some times?
We travelled around,nice people everywhere,lot to see in Algarve-we surely come back,but sad no other Scandinavians around the village we lived.The nearest beach around 20 minutes to walk was really great.We loved the towns Lardos and Loule-hope many others from Norway want to travel to Algarve-just do it-it is great and the airport in Faro was easy to use.So all godd wishes to Rose and her family from to men in Norway.
