We stayed here with our two kids for one week during our October break. The resort is great. Nice pool area, gym with great fitness classes, friendly and attentive staff, easy access to the beach, and walking distance to some good restaurants. Only downside of the hotel is their beach. The beach itself is beautiful. However, we had to pay...

The location just across a road to a sandy beach at least 10 miles long is fantastic. We love to walk and the whole area is most attractive for doing this whether on the beach, around the several golf courses in the area or admiring the bird life in the nearby Ria Formosa National Park. The facilities at the Beach...

“Around the pool on the first floor if you like good views, not too far from the clubhouse. In the 'back' if you like to be quiet.”
