We got a last minute long weekend for a good price. Flights at excellent times from a local airport, and transfers included for a half board break. Transfers were with a local company and the trip took only 45minutes, considerably shorter that the tour companies 2 hours plus.
The hotel is located in a residential area and like many parts of Portugal there were signs that heroin users were using in the area. THe hotel itself is pleasant and very clean. Alex who people have mentioned before is excellent, very helpful and friendly.
The rooms are adequate for a long weekend but for longer than that might become a little claustrophobic. TV has BBC world and you need to take a kettle etc. if you want a drink in your room.
The food is again fine for a few days but is too repetitive. At breakfast it is the same fare every day. Just changing eggs to boiled or fried would help. But if you are a tea and toast person it is fine. Evening meal is a good choice of salad, followed by 2 meat or fish dishes. It could be better. The restaurant is located two floors below reception, basically underground, and is accessed through the indoor pool area. (from some rooms.)
Didn't see anybody in the indoor pool nor any evidence it was used, it is very basic.
The outdoor pool is accessed across a car park and is absolutely fine. There were plenty of loungers and often we were alone in there. The snack bar next door sells cheap drinks and sandwiches.
The hotel provides free transport to Praia de Rocha which is worth taking.
We walked to the train station (20 minutes) and caught a train to Lagos. Cost 2.70 euro return. Takes 17minutes. Lagos is lovely well worth a visit.
All in all a good place to visit for a short break.
