“Pleasant 6 night stay in modern hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

After staying in a similarly priced four star apartment in Praia da rocha last year, both me and my boyfriend expected a lot from this hotel, and it didn't fail to meet our expectations!
We arrived a little too early for check in, and whilst we're not let in immediately, our room was prepared as quickly as possible.
The hotel room itself was large and modern. I would recommend however a room facing the pool/sea as these rooms have a larger balcony, aswell as beautiful views and sun for most of the day.
The only downsides we found with our room was the lack of plugs and a mild sewage smell in the bathroom which was pretty much constant and meant our bathroom door had to be shut at all times (don't know if this was a common problem throughout the hotel).
The breakfast was pretty good and was open till half 10 meaning that you could have a decent lie in!
The pool was lovely and quiet unlike some hotels and pool snacks were delicious and affordable.
The only downside of this hotel which I feel let's it down as a four star is it's dodgy wifi. The speed was just too slow, even for the purchased one which we gratefully received for free. In my opinion in a four star, the wifi should be free anyway and should be able to reach all areas of the hotel.

Thank you for our special stay!

I stayed for one night here whilst in Albufeira in Aoril 2014, the facilities and standard of the apartment were very high and as a disabled person with a mobility scooter they were very accommodating, the only downside I found is that the bed was a little hard and uncomfortable for me.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in June 2013 and we couldn't fault the hotel! Extremely modern, clean and peaceful! We stayed bed & breakfast and the food was lovely! Perfectly situated out of the busyness of the strip but still very close the beach with a private access walk down to it! The old town was only a walk away or 5euros in a taxi and I would definitely recommend going down! No entertainment at night apart from the piano player but it was more of a peaceful adults only hotel! Would definitely recommend as I did to my parents this year and they loved it just as much as we did!

Recently stayed here from a great offer on Secret Escapes. Lovely side sea facing room, comfy bed and spotlessly clean. Only slight grumble was that to use the kettle you had to balance the tray on the floor or chair as the plug wasn't any where near the unit it was on.
Breakfast was super, the best oranges I have ever eaten. Staff couldn't do enough. Great beach a 10 minute walk away along a boarded walk. Pool area is quite small and was incredibly busy but this didn't bother us as we prefer the beach. Reasonable princes and better than some of the 5* Hotels we have stayed in.

Room Tip: We had a superior room which was v nice, and not much different to deluxe.

My and my partner stayed here for 4 nights and it is truly magnificent. We arrived early hours to be greeted by a cheerful gentleman who gave us a warm welcoming. We had paid extra to have a sea and pool view room and it didn't disappoint. The bed was huge, lovely and clean and the balcony had the most beautiful views when we woke up the next day. You can see all along the coast. The pool was very clean as was all of the hotel. I was a bit shocked to find the pool was salt water but got used to this very quickly. Their is quite a few hen and stag parties but they didn't make more noise than the average person. The walk to the beach is about 1/2 mile down some wooden steps but it's lovely down their and the main nightlife is only about the same distance. I had booked this hotel for my partners birthday but had a little surprise for her as we got engaged. I had liaised with the hotel prior to coming and they where very helpful so thank you to them for that. The only issue we had was that the shower wasn't hot it was luke warm. The breakfast was nice, we didn't eat in the hotel other than this but their is a lot of places to eat out. All in all very good and I will be returning at some point in the near future.
