Although the best part of a kilometre from the sea, the position and orientation of the hotel is such that a large number of the rooms enjoy a nice 'sea-view' from their balconies. There is a small beach which (directions needed from the reception staff!) is a 10 minutes walk. On either side of the beach there are cliff walks with an abundance of wild flowers and birdlife. In places, the path goes right to the edge of the cliff, so the walker should turn back or proceed with care! Bedroom, bar-lounge and restaurant were all spotlessly clean and comfortable.. There is also a lounge on the top floor which nobody was using at the time of our stay. Nor was the pool being used, although the warm weather was enticing a few people out to the pool-side areas. The food was very good and restaurant staff friendly and efficient. Staff were excellent in all departments, putting up valiantly with my attempts to converse in Portuguese. The shuttle into Albufeira stops at a point from where it is a 5 - 10 minute easy walk down into the heart of the town. There is a car hire office on the right as you go down (and indeed one in the hotel) in case you want to drive to places like Lagos, Sagres, Alte and Silves.
