This hotel is slap bang on the beach in Albufeira. A sea view was important to me and I was a bit disappointed as the balconies have Moroccan style carving and stone half way up so it’s not a usual sea view Having said that the hotel itself is comfortable, great pillows! The staff are on the mark with Covid regulations I’d give them 10/10 for that Food is good plenty of fish, fruit etc. and good coffee

Recently stayed here for 4 nights just before Christmas and experienced a great stay. The rooms are beautiful, very spacious and the beds are so comfortable. Each room has a sea view and the views are absolutely amazing. We stayed bed and breakfast and the breakfast was lovely. Hot and cold buffet but you wear face masks and provided gloves when serving yourself in line with covid-19 safety. The staff are friendly and attentive, Carolino serving at breakfast was especially attentive always making sure everything was ok. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed one night, waking up to that view was amazing - even in winter. Elza at reception was massively helpful getting a pile of paperwork printed, total life saver. Definitely want to go back in the summer.

Great hotel, fantastic views, fabulous location, right on the beach, and next to the old town. Lovely staff, good breakfast. The bed was comfortable, the room was modern and very clean. There is no parking, but we found free street parking very nearby. We will return and would recommend this hotel, thank you.
