We went here for a short stay in Sept.2012 for a tenth anniversary and what a wonderful hotel.
It took over 3 hours to get there but not the hotels fault.
When we got up in the morning we were greeted with an amazing sight in the hotels restaurant for breakfast what an amazing section of hot and cold food was available the bar prices are reasonable and a cold small beer just after breakfast was cool and refreshing.
The rooms are just like the pictures on the website clean and fresh looking a bit like an Ikea show home with plenty of storage for all your shopping, there is a small supermarket just up the road about a 15 mins walk or a hypermarket a bit further away by car 20 mins both with good selections or fresh bread and food.
The village Alvor is better to walk to as the streets are very tight to drive and park up it is only about 20/30 mins to walk to the village and has a great selection of bars and restaurants to choose from if you like fresh fish then this is the village for you.
We liked it so much where going back this May 2013
