We were looking for a special destination to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We choose Casa Tres Palmeiras primarily because of all the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Thanks fellow Trip Advisors, you were right again. This place did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, it far exceeded our expectations. Rooms are great (immaculate), breakfast is wonderful, the views are spectacular, the beaches are beautiful, great restaurants within walking distance, and, most importantly, Dolly is the best. She is the perfect hostess; we felt like we were staying with our favorite aunt. We had a ridiculously early flight home and she insisted on getting up at 2:30 AM to serve us breakfast and say goodbye. We became friendly with some folks who have been traveling to this area every year for many years (from the UK), and they had no idea this place was even there. One of the ex-Presidents of Portugal has a place just behind Casa Tres Palmeiras (that’s how the taxi drivers found it). When I mentioned to Dolly that she had a better spot than the President, she simply said, "I was here first." Believe every good review you've read about this place. We were there in mid-June. The weather was perfect and the summer crowds had not yet arrived. Be sure to take a short taxi ride to Alvor (lovely fishing village) for some great restaurants. And stop in and see Bruno at Patrimonio (five-minute walk from Casa Tres Palmeiras) and tell him “the Americans” said hi. (Apparently, very few Americans travel to this place; we were a novelty). I can't say enough about this wonderful place. We have traveled all over the world and this is by far one of the best experiences we've ever had.
