This was our second three week stay in the Baia Cristal, and it continues to deliver everything we could want. The rooms are large and immaculate, with very comfortable beds. The seating in the room was a bit low for me, but a suitable alternative was provided as soon as it was requested. The food was excellent for the price... More

Location is perfect - very quiet, safe and relaxing. Surrounding area is beautiful and great for walks with wonderful routes along coastline. Extra big bonus is finding a hotel with such helpful and professional staff. Before holiday, I was impressed with prompt reply to e-mail I had sent to this hotel. They took notice of my request and put arrangements... More

Stayed at the Baia Grande in Nov/Dec and looked forward to my January visit to the sister hotel as their standards are so good. Nice rooms again, good size with big balconies, amazing staff, very helpful and always pleasant and the restaurant very good too, house wine 9 euros a bottle, food so imaginative and well presented. Again a courtesy... More

I would never go to this hotel again. It is so overpriced for what it is. It should have serious refurbishment as it is so dated. Apparently we were given a nice room, which was not nice at all. The beds, bed linen, bathroom towels, everything was cheap quality, old fashioned, dated. It was such a shame to look at... More

Me & my partner stayed at this hotel from the 21st - 26th October for my birthday. I was aware that the hotel didn't have the greatest of reviews, despite this I decided to book the hotel. I got a fantastic deal, hotel + flights + transfers for £450 (for the both of us). The hotel was clean and tidy,... More

We had a really nice stay at this hotel with extreamly polite, friendly and assisting staff. Hotel is well situated for both: breathtaking walks along the ocean as well as for swimming and sunbathing on a sandy beach itself. The fisherman's village with yet another sandy beach, scenic views and variety of small shops and restaurants is just some 20... More
