I can only recommend this place, perfect for children, close to beach and village, clean, good food...Can't wait to go back this year in August. We stayed at many hotels in Olhos and around before, this one is the best by far.
We stayed from 25th Oct, half term week, we arrived late morning, we upgraded to a deluxe apartment room no 631, it was simply stunning all newly refurbished and had a full sea view, sunny balcony we were delighted, we had looked at the standard room we were offered at check in which was great but didn’t have sea view, it was our anniversary and they had made a love heart on the bed and there was champagne flutes and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge, so because we upgraded they said to go an have a drink and snack while they checked over 631, when we got up to the room they had redone the love heart out of petals and put bubbly in to chill, it was such a lovely gesture from the hotel, anyway we have had an amazing time, the staff are a credit to your hotel every single one of them was lovely and friendly! We had a good explore of the area, 10 mins walk down to Olhos de Água it’s lovely around there, lovely small beach and enough places to have food and drinks, sleepy donkey does lovely food, we also went to villamoura lovely marina, we went to Praia Sao Raphael beach I would recommend especially if you have a car to get you there as it was about 25 mins away, the beach is gorgeous, we went to Albufeira old town nice area to wander around, we went down the strip in Albufeira it’s nothing special, we went half board in the hotel breakfast was 100% good everything you could imagine, someone recently said breakfast got boring i can assure you it was fantastic, lovely freshly cooked omelettes, cooked breakfasts, continental, the list was endless, evening meal the same plenty of choices, enjoyed cheese and crackers, there is nothing about this hotel that you could find any fault with, the apartments are self catering so if you make a brew or use the pots, you need to wash up, I took a little plastic bottle of W u liquid and sponge, or buy some, someone complained because it’s not provided, there’s a hairdryer in the bathroom, the safe was included in the price of the upgraded room, the bed was very comfortable, also there is a lift in block 6, the ladies kept our room immaculately clean, lovely shampoo n shower gel, reception staff lovely too, luis I think was one of the hotel managers was lovely and went out of his way to chat with us and offered us drinks when we were waiting for airport pickup, last but not least the restaurant staff are hardworking and lovely too, we cannot wait to return! Oh and one more thing the weather was mid 70’s we had a few sunny days and it was glorious, we had a few cloudy days but it wasn’t cold at all and even in the evenings it wasn’t chilly, so to sum up I would rate this hotel more than a 5 circle rating! …
Apartment was very spacious for the 4 of us and cleaned everyday. Warm reception from staffs who are very friendly and helpful. The two hotel entertainers kept us busy during the day, yoga, stretching, Pilates, tennis, football and walking trail on the cliffs. Luis the manager is always at hand for help on local knowledge. Food were excellent and the pool area is very nice to spend relaxing time. Beach is only 2 minutes away down the wooden steps. Highly recommended. We walked to Vilamoura following advice from Luis, this was very nice walk. Overall experience were excellent.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff are helpful, friendly and more than welcoming. There was always someone out and about cleaning and tidying the grounds and our apartment was cleaned everyday, with the towels changed whenever we needed. The apartment was really spacious, clean and in a quiet block. We stayed on B&B basis, with plenty of delicious choices available at the biffet breakfast. The beach was clean and the hotels private steps were a very gentle descent. Overall a fantastic place that we definitely recommend. Well done to all of the friendly staff, who go that extra mile, especially the lady who did the mini disco in the evening, my daughter Isabella thought she was fantastic!
we stayed at this hotel from 12th sept.2019 to the 25th sept and the hotel was brilliant? however on the last day of a great holiday my wife fell ill and was in faro hospital for 5 days. we thought that we would ring the 24 hour helpline for assistance (what a farce) they said as we had booked out of the hospital there was nothing they could do. the reps tried their best but could only work within jet 2 policy.what is worse we thought as we were insured we would be ok. wrong jet 2 will not after repeated request send me a letter to confirm the missed flight .we managed to get a flight 5 days later with easy jet. who were brilliant ,and half the price of jet 2
