Stayed at this hotel in October 2012 for a short last-minute break with my partner. The price was very reasonable and we went for an All-Inclusive deal. From what I can remember, there wasn't a huge choice of booze available on the AI deal but we sank plenty of the slushie-cocktails to keep us happy.
As it was October, it was fairly chilly in the evening so we didn't get to enjoy the outside pool area until late and sometimes struggled to get a seat in the bar. Food was ok, some mystery-meat options but nothing too memorable. The room was large for 2 people in very pretty, well manicured grounds.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere so don't choose this one if you want to walk to the local towns. There is a bus to Albufeira which was full when we tried to get it so we went for the public bus instead. The stop is right outside the hotel but arrived a lot later than scheduled.
We spent one evening in Albuifera - but avoid this unless you like tourist hell. The Old Town was much nicer and we holed up in a nice bar for quite a while.
We also hired some push bikes for a day and took them along the coastal path into Olhos de Agua. This was excellent. The hire charge was very cheap and we could simply leave the bikes locked up for collection the next day. The path is beautiful but be careful as there are some nasty drops that come out of nowhere.
Olhos de Agua was lovely, a nice small town but not much there apart from a beach and a few restaurants.
Overall, a good value holiday for 4 nights but would pick somewhere less out of town next time.
