We were upgraded to a larger apartment, had a nice patio to sit out on. We were Half Board , so did not make use of the kitchen facilities, which were well stocked for cooking, eating and drinking. Everywhere was very clean and nicely presented, lovely pool and another smaller one set in a nice quiet garden area. The staff... More

This was a very comfortable stay at a hotel that gets so many things right, whilst being right in the middle of the beautiful Algarve. The pluses were numerous, so I'll start off with the ones that stuck out in my mind the most. The big wins of the hotel were the very spacious rooms, the cleanliness of the entire... More

spent 11 nights on a self catering basis at the hotel with full use of all 3 pools. You could have meals in the restaurant if you paid, we only had their breakfast which was a good choice of hot and cold food for 15 euros. Otherwise the supermarket across the road catered for everything you would need and even... More

Ideal for families. Food was great, pool was very clean, apartment was large and met all our needs. Would recommend and go again. Staff were friendly and the area was lovely. They had a stag do while we were there but all handled very professionally.
