I trust trip advisor reviews when choosing hotels so I had to share my views on this hotel. We stayed in a resort studio suite which is a small apartment. It was spacious - large double bed, sofa bed, single bed, kitchen/dining area. It also had all the amenities one would require for a self catering trip - fridge, hob, microwave, coffee machine etc. The room was spotless which for me is important.
We stayed on a b&b basis and the choice at breakfast was amazing from fresh fruit, meats & cheeses to a full cooked breakfast. The fresh orange juice was delicious and there was also champagne on offer. We ate at the Atlantico cafe bar for lunch several times. This has amazing views of the beach & the sea and is a lovely place to sit for lunch. The food is reasonably priced and tasty. Try the ham & cheese toastie (which is big enough for two). The beer here is also cheaper than the pool side bars. A large beer at the cafe is 3 euros but 4.5 euros by the pool.
At night we ate out in Albufeira. Try Il Cappuccino for a low cost meal. We walked for 35 minutes to this restaurant which serves 3 courses plus half a litre of wine each for 7.5 euros per person. Dont be put off by the exterior of the restaurant/cafe, its lovely and quaint once you enter and the staff are so friendly. We sat outside at the back chatting over our wine & food. I'd definitely go back.
My husband & I spent the first few days of our honeymoon at this hotel and returned one afternoon to find a bottle of champagne and a huge platter of sliced fresh fruit. I thought this was a lovely little touch.
The resort has everything you need for a great holiday - beach, 3 outdoor pools, cafe/restaurant, bar and is close enough to the strip & old town if you want to venture out. A taxi to old town cost around 7 euros and we walked to the strip.
There were lots of families with children here who were having lots of fun so I think this hotel is ideal for families & couples. This is a wonderful resort - we will definitely be returning and recommending it to our friends.
