No idea why this place is rated so high. I felt like the place is not well maintained especially the bathrooms, staircases, bed rooms. everything felt dusty and dark. the breakfast honestly is an offense. that thing that they call coffee machine puts you a brown liquid in your cup that is for sure not a good coffee. however they...

I do not know why the staff have a problem in policing the issue of guests leaving towels on sunbeds all day, as mentioned previously. When there is no one in the pool and most of the sunbeds are empty, with towels on them, it is patently obvious, the best spots are being reserved by selfish guests. There are no... More

A beautiful small resort, located 20 minutes walk from the town centre but 10 minutes walk from two beaches. The townhouse, we stayed in, was very clean, fully furnished and the daily maid service was very useful. If you want laughter and little children running around, sit by the pool, be sure to block your sun lounger as they go... More

We have been coming to Pestana Palm Gardens now for five years. This year we brought our whole family. I love staying here as it is a very peaceful, beautifully maintained resort. The gardens are lovely and the villas are great. We are lucky enough to have a villa with a huge roof terrace and a great sea view. The... More

Fair place to stay two or three days with family in algarve. Town houses fully equipped, fair price and quiet and good location for family rest. If you looking for fun this is not your algarve area. Pool facilities and gardens. Not sure about the restaurant as the whole algarve is terrible for eating so we decided not risk to... More

The second time I've been to palm gardens and both times it has been really relaxing and chilled. The complex and apartments are always spotless and well looked after. The only downside would be the walk to the town of about 1 mile on the main road but taxis are cheap enough.

Having stayed in the Prestana Hotels which are of a high standard this one fall below what one would expect. The area around the resort needs money spent on uplifting the paths and gardens. The rooms are ok. The pool area is very small. The dress of the staff could be upgraded. The breakfast was ok no more. My review... More
