We stayed here with friends for a short winter break. We arrived mid-morning and even though check in is 2pm we were given our rooms immediately. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms spotless and the beds very comfortable. There was an extensive selection of food for breakfast of a very good standard. Although there appeared to be... More

We have never visited Olhao (pronounced Oolyow) before, its very handy location wise, its only 20 mins from Faro Airport. We arrived at the hotel alot earlier than the usual 2pm check-in but after a short wait in the reception area... More

This is a great 5 star Hotel in Olhao, we stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed the benefits of a modern new hotel, with a nice pool (in- and outdoor), spa area and kids play zone. The breakfast buffet is very good and contained almost everything you wished for, from fresh fruits to eggs and fresh bread. The reception... More

The Algarve is not somewhere I would choose to go on holiday. But I was here on business, and can't say that the price or facilities disappointed. The hotel (in the low-season when I was there) catered to budget package tourists from the UK mostly, who sat by the pool most of the day and weren't particularly demanding. Spa services... More

Great location near from Faro. Its a quiet place. The apartment provides all our needs in a modern design and a clean environment. The staff is very friendly. This is the kind of accommodation that we prefer and with this excelent service, better yet.
