“Excellent comfort and value”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great-resort-like accommodation. Clean, comfortable. Great staff ... super-helpful. Convenient store near-by. Refreshing pool.
No reflection on the hotel... but to find the hotel, use the map they have on their site. Do not use the search function of the GPS. It gets confused.

Small hotel with everything one needs for a recreative holiday on the south coast of Portugal. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast more than just ok (even if the varity of the buffet could be somewhat larger), the wifi is - different to a lot of places - fast as promised, the rooms are clean and well staffed inclusive a small kitchen (with fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle ...). The pool area is small, but neat and somewhat wind-protected. We enjoyed our stay there so that we extended it twice.

A self catering apartment hotel situated between almancil & vale do lobo well located near restaurants & easy to find. It has a basic level of fit out, clean & good value for money .We were upgraded from a twin room to a 2 bedroom apartment with balconies facing the front & rear of the hotel .Bedrooms were comfortable not noisy, kitchen had everything you would expect & is where the tv is located .TV was very small hung on the wall , the kitchen chairs were a little hard

The common parts were again basic but adequate. Breakfast was in a large room near reception again a basic fit out .The amount of food & quality was adequate & in keeping with the price ( the larger hotels near by are more expensive & hence provide a bigger selection of food including warm options ,eggs bacon etc which was not the case here)

There was plenty of parking plus a small garden with adult & child pool , there were also swings slides for children

If a larger TV was in the kitchen with perhaps a sofa the experience of staying would greatly improved

Would I stay again? yes, but only for 1 or 2 nights since any longer & I would want more comfort

Is it good value for money ?yes

Close to the luxury resort of Quinta de Lago but without the crazy costs. Lots of good eating places close to hand and a good supermarkets close by. Self catering with comfort and style with welcoming staff.. thanks Elsa!! Good centre to base a tiur and only 15 mins from faro airport.

Room Tip: Try room 206 which is an appartment for 4

Having not been back to the Algarve for a few years l was desperate for the clams in garlic sauce and the famous piri-piri chicken. The area l chose to stay was Almancil ,towards the beach and another favourite Julia's Beach Bar. The place l went for was A Floresta do jose, a spotlessly clean Hotel Apartment block just minutes down the road towards Vale do Lobo. Although the building was not new, 10 years old somebody said, it looked new inside. The rooms were an ideal size and all had balconies for that evening drink or cigarette. All the rooms at the back had a good aspect over looking the pool, the ones on the front over looked other buildings and farm land. Everything in the rooms were well thought out,, the fridge was big enough, with plenty of cooking space for 2 persons. Breakfast was plenty to with lots to chose from . The shower room was a good size to with towel changes with what seamed like all the time. Another plus was the restaurant of the same name in the same grounds, it had only been open 2 weeks, and very busy, you could eat cheaply or more expensively. It was great just to walk 50 m to it...I also felt that the photographs did not do it justice so I have supplied some more...............SEDGE THE TRUCKER
