A week here near the end of January was very enjoyable although obviously it still being winter and out of season it was very very quiet - the hotel is excellent value for money with very nice comfortable clean rooms. As in all the other reviews of this hotel the breakfast is great with a very good variety (anyone who likes a cooked breakfast/bacon/eggs you will not get it here), fresh fruit, all sorts of breads - served in the lovely sunny roof terrace. There are a few restaurants nearby - bit of a walk to beach - walked to Albufeira strip locality which takes around half an hour. If you're looking for somewhere peaceful this is it - if you want noise and plenty of night life forget it. All-in-all it was, for us, a lovely restful week with a good bit of sunshine though very cold once the sun went down.
