We booked at very short notice via expedia. I could not fault the staff, they work very hard to make your stay enjoyable, the room was spacious and spotlessly clean and the kitchen was very well equipped should you wish to cater for yourselves - however from 4.40 euros you can get a poolside meal at the bar such as burger and chips/omelette etc (breakfast is even cheaper) . This is a hidden gem, most of the people we met had been going back year after year. I certainly plan to take the family back again as soon as we can. It is a good walk to the beach or marina, but there are bikes to use at reception and also Vilamoura has a bike scheme where by you can pick up and drop of their bikes at many various points around the town/marina areas Don't expect a 5 star hotel but it offers much better standards than many of the more expensive places we haved stayed in and in my opinion it represents great value for money ..we were delighted with our stay.

Room Tip: As per other comments, I understand that some rooms are newer than others, however our room had been refurbished and I couldn't fault it. I am sure the reception staff would do their best to resolve any issues though.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights from 1st-6th June. We booked last minute and we're extremely happy with what we got! We had a late arrival and were greeted by a lovely cheerful lady who showed us to our self catering apartment. It was exactly how it was advertised, it had everything you needed to cook and was extremely well kitted out with utensils, crockery and cutlery. Our room was clean and tidy and was cleaned everyday throughout our stay. The whole complex was extremely clean and tidy and friendly. Both pools were nice and there were plenty of sun loungers available. It was very quiet but I think early June is not quite peak time so we had a lot of time to ourselves. The 2nd pool seemed to be more relaxed and quiet than the main one. We didn't eat at the restaurant but had ice creams and drinks which were good. It was free to play table tennis and tennis. The marina is only a short walk however with the facilities available at the complex we stayed in most nights as the spar shop is even closer by to get anything needed for food and drink. I cannot wait to go back and had a brilliant five days. I wish it could have been a longer stay. Overall it was brilliant. Thanks to all the wonderful staff.

Just returned from Pinhal. We had a one bedroom apartment with a pool view....FANTASTIC!!
Very clean, a lot bigger then we expected with a large balcony.
Nothing was to much trouble for the staff, the ladies in reception couldnt have been more helpful.
Bar staff worked very hard. The walk to the marina took approx 15 mins, a taxi home was 4.5 euros. Pools were clean but cold. The cleaners arrived in force every morning to sweep around the pool and wipe down every bed. Will definately be going back.

Room Tip: Pool view are newer so a bit more modern.

We stayed at these apartments for 10 days over Easter. We had a garden view room for 4 on the ground floor. Apartment was very well equipped,spotlessly clean and spacious. We had one of the modernised apartments,some of the others did look quite dated.
There were 2 good sized pools but neither were heated so the water was freezing,although that didnt stop our 2 teenagers using them.They used the tennis court everyday.
We only ate in the restaurant once and the food was good and reasonably priced.The apartments are about 10 mins walk to a supermarket,20 mins walk to Marina and 10 mins walk to the Old Village.
The only downside for us was that there was no one else there! We were the only family staying there surprised us.To be fair the whole area was quiet,even the Marina.
special mention to Carmen,Dora and Tina,they were the most helpful and friendly receptionists we have met on any holiday.
