We stayed at the above Hotel for 2 weeks from the 15th May 2014,booking with Thomson.This is a Thomson Gold Hotel, however not all clients are english, which makes a refreshing change.We had a standard room overlooking the rear gardens,which did not receive any sun at all.The room had lots of storage space and was above average.The bed was very comfortable.Toiletries were replaced daily without asking which is very unusual these days.The safe charge is e2.50 per day,also the fridge.
The restaurant was very relaxing and the food served for Breakfast and Evening meal was of a good standard,although house wine at e12.50 per bottle we felt was expensive as the water at e3.50 for 1 litre.If you purchase wine in the restaurant you are not allowed to take the balance into the show bar afterwards although no signs anywhere, very strange!
The grounds are spacious and kept immaculate with pools,fishponds and plenty of shrubs etc.Plenty of sunbeds are available everywhere.Evening entertainment in the show bar was typical Thomson Gold standard with tribute,and local acts which were very good,as were the Thomson team.But the chairs were tired and need replacing,some very dusty and worn.
The Hotel is quite well situated,.The local bus stop for Vilamoura is a 20 minute walk.The beach can be reached by road,25-30 minute walk or via the adjacent hotel the Sheraton Pine Trees walk to lift 20 minutes then still 228 steps to beach.Although the hotel run a shuttle bus to the beach on a regular basis,but still drops you at the top of a very steep hill and then steps down to beach.
The Hotel also run a shuttle bus to Albufeira for e5 return and Vilamoura e10 return which is very useful. A pleasant walk is to another local beach resort Olhos d'agua which can take up to 40 minutes to walk.
In all a very relaxing Hotel,with all the staff being very helpful and friendly.
