A first-class hotel in a perfect location in the lovely small town of Olhao. Firstly the staff throughout the hotel were all very friendly, polite, professional and helpful. We were there for 10 nights on a B&B basis and Jaime who was in charge of the restaurant for breakfast was a real star. His customer service was as impeccable as his smart dinner suit and we never had to wait more than 30 seconds to be seated. The choice for breakfast was perfectly acceptable with hot or cold food available as well as the most delicious local fruit and cakes.
Overlooking the marina area the hotel swimming pool area was sometimes busy but never left you with the feeling of being overcrowded. Every area in the hotel was spotless and the generous sized rooms had all the amenities you could require including a fridge (except tea and coffeee making facilities). The good sized balconies had views over the Ria Formosa.The free wi-fi was fine in the public areas but a little variable in the bedrooms depending on where you stood!
Olhao itself is a pleasant and, as yet unspoiled, small town with typical Portugese features and only 20 minutes from Faro airport. We were there when the annual seafood and music festival was on which added to the atmosphere. We dined in a different restaurant every night so there is plenty of choice within easy and flat walking distance(under 10 minutes) from the hotel.
