“Sunday lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The staff are super friendly and cannot do enough to help. The building is amazing and it is such a welcome change to sit on proper chairs not plastic ones. The food lets it down though. Wafer thin slices of grey looking beef, cold mash and roasties that could have done with another half hour in a hot hot oven. Raw cold cauli and frozen peas. Oh and some liquid to pour on said meal. Cheap enough but i would rather pay more and get better. Third time here and sorry I won´t be back.

My boyfriend and I didn't stay at this hotel however, we did go along for dinner/ drinks on several occasions. The staff were very friendly. Manager Kelly was lovely, and very helpful about things to do in the area. Irish owner Stuart was also really nice and we both had a good chat with him.

We had dinner in the restaurant which was nice, and also had snacks at the bar a few times. It was a fairly quiet pub and we felt very at home.

We would definitely consider staying here the next time we visit the area.

Just to say we stayed for 7 nights at this quirky, secluded hotel under the new management of Stuart and Lucie Anderson (July 2012), aided by their abely equipped assistant manager Kelly who was a fantastic help, especially with her Bi-lingual talents!

Made us extremely welcome, couldnt do enough for us and we'll definately go back again!

Worth every penny, food was good, accommodation and location was the same, plenty of local places to eat, best to have a car if you want to visit the local resorts (Vilamura, Albufera, Loule, etc),

Pool was secluded and spotlessly clean, surrounded by beautiful flowers, carpark was secure and the beer was cold.

A perfect place away from the crowds to chill out, we will return !

Had a wonderful time at this inn, ideally located between Villamoura and Albufera we felt completely at home and that nothing was too much trouble. Stuart was a great host, and the breakfasts were great.

Would recommend to anyone!

I stayed here last summer for 10 days with my boyfriend. From the very first day Geraldine and Peter were amazing! They were always asking how they could help, organised us taxis whenever we needed and always went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. It is a little far from the main part of the Algarve but not far to drive. Me and my boyfriend hired a bikewhich we used to get around most days. The rooms are very clean and tidy and they are cleaned daily. The whole family cannot do enough for you. The food is great value for money. Nice healthy portions etc. We had breakfast there everyday and never got bored, and the Sunday roast is to die for! You must have it at least once during your stay. Even people who are not staying at the inn come down on a Sunday to enjoy Geraldine's Roast! When we decided to stay around the pool we were often the only ones there which was nice too. As I said, it is a little far out from the main night life/beaches etc but if you don't mind driving or travelling to and from the noise of the strips then I would definately recommend this place as i simply cannot fault it in any way!

We spent 3 days there which were great, then lef to attend 2 weddings and then came back which was meant to be 6 nights. due to traffic incidents (not mine) we couldn't spend the first night there and came back for 5.
when the bill came, even though the situation was explained when we arrived, they charged us for 6 nights.
the bar area couldn't be used after 9pm as they were tired, if you call ham and cheese sandwich dinner then thats what was only available for dinner, make sure to order before 8pm!! the bar was dead all the time. the pool was good, we had the scoop to clean it ourselves as there were many flowers around dropping into the pool. nice family that owned the place, very friendly all the time, except for the bill. all in all my boyfriend and i only used the place to sleep rest and twice for breakfast.

Room Tip: when booking make sure you ask a room with the view of the pool, we were kept awake with the sound o...
