We have just returned from our first family holiday to Portugal, ten days, two adults and a 20 year old. We thoroughly enjoyed the respite that the holiday brought us but this was not a relaxing nor peaceful resort. This "five star resort" has been terribly overrated and miss-advertised which lead us to have very high expectations with no follow... More

Firstly, we love portugal and the Algarve, although it was our first time in Carvoeiro. Initial impressions were really good. Nice looking pool although a little small for the size of the resort, nice looking town houses and villas and welcoming staff. Once inside the town house we also felt quite happy with our choice. Although a little too harsh... More

If we were reviewing the villa itself it would be 5 star as it did not disappoint. We stayed in one of the 3 bed with private villa. As per other reviews it was spacious, clean and well equipped. Wifi worked well - great for spotify! The pool was lovely with 6 sun beds and we made use of the... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years, as well as many others. The accommodation is well appointed and in good condition. Having stayed in the same villa over the past two years, they are noticeably up keeping the villas on the resort. The restaurant pool and pool bar is fantastic for the kids. Very... More

The villa itself was excellent. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. Spacious lounge and well equipped kitchen too. However, we arrived very late at night and our check in experience was poor. The driver who took us to our villa hadn't a clue where he was going and he spent about 30 mins looking for our villa. Not... More

Stayed here for a family break. The accommodation (the townhouses) are fantastic and the staff on reception were very helpful. We had a hire car and the complex is suitably listed for easy access to all the highlights of the Algarve. The only downside was the bar/restaurant. Service was erratic at best and the food tended to be undercooked or... More

After checking in we received a phone call to say we had to meet the General Manager. The upshot of this was that Low Cost Holidays had gone bankrupt that day and our accommodation had not been paid, despite full payment being made in April. After a lot of negotiations the manager offered us 2 options; leave the hotel or... More

Very helpful reception staff, accommodation very luxurious, pool lovely for adults and children, lots of families, restaurant service was a little slow mainly due to being short staffed, kids club was lacking and there is nothing in the evening to keep them entertained. Overall good but suggest bed and breakfast rather than all inclusive or half board.

The townhouse accommodation was great. Had we realised the quality of the catering facilities, we probably wouldn't have booked any board. The food was interesting, but not to the 17 year old's taste, so we ate out most nights. Staff helpful and friendly. You need a car to get about really. Great supermarkets within a 10 minute drive. Great Italian... More

We arrived having our tour operator gone under. Expected some issues, but shocked to be presented with a new invoice almost twice that we had paid originally! Managed to negotiate a small reduction, but still over priced. The resort is ok, villas are nice, but there are starting to need attention. Both showers leaking, that had damaged the doors. One...
