We have been going for many years and as soon as you walk into the hotel you feel at home being greeted by a friendly receptionist. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and tidy and cleaned every day to a high standard. Whilst it is out of town (Albufeira) and has a quiet

We have just returned from Baia Grande. The hotel is in a quiet area and free bus to Old town was appreciated although due to being out of season pick up times limited. The hotel is very clean. One day the room still wasn’t cleaned at 4.30pm which after a long day we would have

Stayed in November for 2 weeks on B and B very happy with the breakfast, lovely fruit everyday, Buck's Fizz if you felt like it!! Didn't try but nice touch. Had room service in the evening several times which was very nice. Busy hotel but not over large so didn't feel crowded.

Dear Margaret W The minute you stepped in the door you became a guest and could have had your meal in the restaurant. For some reason, you chose to have a lighter meal at the bar. As you discovered, there is no Peppercornsauce steak on our list. This was served during our Portuguese themed evening at the Buffet. I wish you had mentioned that you had a problem with your burger as serving it on a hot plate would have been the easiest problems to solve. I personally prefer my burger served on a plate at room temperature because I like my salad cold and I do not like soggy burger bunn, but that´s me The TV channels can be tricky, but I'm glad someone has solved this for you, however, we usually have the TVs in the bar tuned to a sports channel without any sound. As the bar caters to a variety of nationalities, this can be tricky. I wish you would reconsider eating here again and if so please let me know. Best wishes Paulo

Hi. What are the times of the shuttle bus and what time is the last bus to take you back to the hotel? Thanks
9 30 first 16 40 last but if reasonably fit it’s not the longest walk from harbour and view worth it
