We stayed here for ten days, first impressions very good it's a huge complex very well maintained with beautiful gardens and lots of pools to keep everyone busy! We stayed in a two bed superior apartment with 2 bathrooms and all mod cons ie washing machine dishwasher etc fully equipped kitchen, we had a great stay though a couple of things to take note, no evening entertainment and only 2 complimentary bus runs per day at 10am and 6pm only carrying 24 passengers at 10am and 24passengers at 6pm, we stayed with another family so we had 9 in total in our party, what was surprising was we found reception staff not helpful when making enquiries about public buses and pushed us along the route of ordering taxis which incurred a supplement for the hotel, so they benefit from you ordering a taxi, trips excursions etc could be arranged at reception but at inflated prices, the strip was around 15 min walk from complex, but if you go in opposite direction there are great places to eat also at olhos d agua which is 5 to 10 min walk away! In all we had a great holiday but if you are travelling with teenagers you may want to rethink, it's ideal for those wanting to have a quiet holiday and perfect for very young families, the pools are beautiful and no trouble getting sun loungers, the accommodation is a little dated as is the main bar behind reception and could do with a bit of a facelift! Having said that we would go back!
