“Its all about the scenery”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Arrived home to a distinctly cool UK, after a mainly sun filled week in the Algarve.
This Hotel deserves a four star rating for the view alone; to eat ones breakfast, or sip cocktails while overlooking the beautiful Cove is a joy.

The hotel is well run, the staff helpful and friendly, the rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts good. { we ate out at night } What more could you ask ? If I was to criticise, it could be that maybe a coat of paint here and there would freshen the place up a bit.

I suggest if you bore easily then hire a car as we did, and explore. One suggestion is the Sand Sculptures at Pera, [ very good ]

Room Tip: upgrade to a sea view room

Hotel #6 on our Globus tour of Portugal. This hotel caters heavily to visitors from Britain and Germany, as well as to bus tours. It has the look and feel of a resort and does the job fairly well. The view from the rooms is terrific.

Had two brilliant weeks here , just arrived home.
Very relaxing holiday, you need a car if you are going for more than a week .
Service is excellent , staff are brilliant and cannot do enough for you .
The indoor pool and leisure facilities are a bit dated and in need of a revamp and the gym and beauty section could do with being upstairs in a more open plesent environment as underground isnt very appealing .
But overall very very good hotel and highly recommend

Just returned from a week at this wonderful, relaxing hotel. The sea view from the bedroom had the wow factor, defiantly worth paying the upgrade for!

The staff were very attentive particularly the bar staff who were real characters.

Breakfast was ok, not fantastic, the coffee/OJ could have been better quality and the cooked breakfast wash't fantastic so we just went for the tinned fruit and toast.

All the staff were lovely apart from 1 man in reception, we were unfortunate to have some belongings/money stolen the small dark haired man behind reception was particularly unhelpful and more interested in getting 25 euros cash from us for a replacement safe key than trying to emphasise with our situation and put our minds at ease, in the end we found our own way to the tourist information/police station and they were brilliant couldn't be more helpful.

A brilliant holiday came back with a lovely tan and the feel good factor

Room Tip: Room with a View worth the extra money, breakfast not fantastic, staff wonderful!!

Not often you see a hotel online that actually looks as good when you see it in person but this is as good as it looks. Great location, great views, great service and great food. The bed was a little uncomfortable but overall 9.5/10. Definitely worth upgrading as we did to am ocean view superior room because the view was spectacular. Not over run with children either...we'd go again.

We chose this hotel based on price (we wanted a reasonably cheap deal in May) and on previous reviews. We were really happy with our choice. We rented a car from the airport in Faro, and it took us about 45 minutes to get to the hotel - easy to find given that there's really only one road in and out of Carvoeiro. On arrival, staff were very friendly and helpful, and that continued throughout our stay - we had to change rooms after the first night and this was organised for us with no questions asked - we even got a room upgrade free of charge. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful, although it could get quite busy. Great views from the dining room out to the sea. Carvoerio is a really good central location for sightseeing, and we were able to take several trips both on foot and by car. There are loads of gorgeous beaches nearby, Centianes was a particularly lovely one...but there are many more if you follow the coastal path either east or west. We didn't eat in the hotel other than breakfast and one lunch, as there's a huge selection of restaurants within ten minutes' walk of the hotel. Only complaints would be that the rooms are a wee bit dated and could do with a freshen up, and that the cost to use some of the sports facilities was a bit steep (19 euros for an hour's tennis is extortionate in my opinion). Otherwise, I'd recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room on check in or request one when you book - they really are superior to the g...
