“Returned in may 2013”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Visited your hotel in may 2013 again ,my husband and I.as expected we had a fab holiday again.the food was even better than last time.the pool bar service was very good And as my husband is not a lunchtime eater (just a drinker)it meant that I didn't have to go into the restaurant on my own I ate around the pool. The entertainment was the same but we still enjoyed it could have been better.our holiday overlapped the kids holidays. Which we will try to avoid next time.we will definitely be returning again and hope to meet you (Bruno) next time.

Room Tip: We have been twice and every time our room was great we were on the third floor.

Our 10 month old baby was as happy as we were with this holiday I.e. very happy!

I didn't think I'd like all-inclusive but ironically, there is a lot more food choice than our usual trips out to various hotels etc!

Nice and hot too which is a big reason to go!

My other half and I visited for a week long holiday June 2013. After a short taxi ride from the Faro airport we had to wait ~40 minutes to check in as there was a queue in front of us. The hotel was very clean, as were the rooms. The food choice was unbelievable. I thought for a large hotel the food in the main dining area would be repetitive, it was anything but! Also, as a couple travelling I did have a moment of panic about there being a kids club (suggesting there was going to be lots of screaming children). Again to the contrary, no issues! The town itself, Armacao de Pera, was definitely on the quiet side, not much nightlife. We took a day trip to Albufeira which allowed me to indulge in 'shopping for pretty things'. The hotel booked a taxi for us which was about 20ish euro’s either way. All in all a fabulous stay, would highly recommend!!

7 September went late so we missed the majority of school kids. Very relaxing hotel with good friendly staff. The rooms we very clean and well maintained. Paying for a pool view is well worth the extra. Plenty of choice for food and would recommend it to both family and friends. They could spend just a little more on the quality of the entertainment.

Stayed here with my son and grandson, aged 4. He had never been abroad before but he loved the pool and the kid's activities. I really enjoyed the food - healthy and delicious with plenty of choice. There were plenty of sunbeds around the pool. All the facilities were clean and the staff were friendly, helpful and spoke excellent English. Fellow guests were also friendly.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and was allocated one at the back of the hotel which was quiet.

27 July 2013. Had a great holiday with 2 kids and my husband. The food was excellent with loads of choice and even did a couple of open bbq nights which were amazing. I found the rooms to be clean and comfy a bit small when you have 4 in one room, but it is weel worth paying the extra for a pool view room. The hotel entertainment staff were excellent and so good with the kids they interacted so much, (loads better than the Thomas Cook reps) the evening entertainment is'nt the best they need to look at that especially for the adults. The reception staff and Manager (Bruno) were excellent they were interested in another you wanted to say and any problems gor sorted straight way. We did venture to the town and was very surprise at the variety that it had to offerand how busy it was, with a great beach. We would certainly go back to this hotel and am a travel agent.

Room Tip: Go for a Pool View
