The hotel is lovely and clean. Rooms are large and cleaned daily. Reception staff are very pleasant and very helpful if you need any help. The pools are clean and well looked after. Theres a small supermarket opposite the hotel which is very useful. The only downside is that the hotel is a bit out of the way. 20 minute walk to the strip or a taxi to the old town but overall we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel.

Fabulous.😁 clean, friendly & excellent measures in place for covid 19 not just at the hotel but around the area & at Faro airport. On the covid issue I actually felt safer there than at home or in work in Wales. The food was a touch repetative & not hot but warm or cold but considering the covid measures this is mostly likely why & I didnt starve.The restaruant manager was amazing from what we saw he was there from 8am until 11pm with a smile everytime he was essentially on his own & at times rushed off his feet but had an excellent attitude so big shout out to the man 😁. I look forward to going back in less restrictive times.

The best place I have lived in Portugal. I have my apartment in Block C opposite the Villas. Love love love it. The hotel has everything you need. The reception staff are always helpful and the bar is well stocked. Breakfast is a must..... plenty to eat at the buffet. Uber from here to the strip is about 5 euros or walk about 20 mins. Very quiet in the winter but summer busy.

Lovely hotel. Not the best location but can easily get taxis into town. Rooms were basic but cleaned every day. Pool areas were clean and tidy. Only down fall is the poor attitude of the bar staff. I found them to be very rude throughout my stay.
