We have just come back from a short break of just four nights. Took a chance on getting a transfer from the airport on arrival & happy to report it was easy & cheap. There is always the apprehension as you drop off other travellers and wonder what your hotel will be like but we were not disappointed. Our first impression was good, smart frontage followed by clean bright open plan foyer. Both staff on reception were immediately welcoming and spoke excellent English. Our apartment was perfect. Very large, bright and clean with two large single beds, plenty of cupboard/hanging space. There was an L shapped baloncy overlooking the wooded area at the back and great views in the distance. Large modern kitchen with full sized white goods. As it was only a short break we did not need to use it all but with a full size dining table and chairs too as well as the sofa (bed) and arm chairs it really was a "home from home". The Bathroom was also large and spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need including a very powerful shower, out towels were replaced everyday too. We did not eat in the hotel but did use the bar and all the staff that we met throughout our stay were really friendly and helpful. The pool area and separate childrens pool area where also clean and well maintained although we did not use them on this occasion. The hotel is just a short walk to a good selection of bars, restaurants and supermarket. The lovely beach is also very close and a gentle stroll down hill although you could not do the walk back up if infirm. We have no complaints and really would recommend this hotel. It is 25 minutes bus ride into Albufeira which is also lovely and all the beaches in the area are stunning. We stayed here as part of a holiday paid for with our Airmiles but I would have been more than happy to have paid full price.
