“Clean, Friendly and Quiet”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great hotel, simple but clean and modern. My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week at the end of August. The staff were friendly and helpful, happy to phone a taxi for us and recommend restaurants. We spent a few days by the pool and it was rarely busy. The continental breakfast buffet was simple and just what we were looking for. The room was clean, and the maids were friendly and helpful. The rooms have air conditioning, but it isn't very powerful. We found it quite stuffy at times... but we are from Scotland so we're not used to the hot weather!

One thing worth noting is, that the hotel doesn't serve dinner or any meals apart from breakfast. However there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. We enjoyed the Boliqueime Inn (http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g652078-d1129833-Reviews-The_Boliqueime_Inn-Boliqueime_Algarve.html).

It's a lovely quiet village. If, like us, you are looking for a peaceful place to stay away from the bustling nightlife of the coastal towns, this is a great place to go. There were lots of European couples there at the same time as us, as well as several young families.

We would also recommend hiring a car as we had to use taxis every day to get down to Vilamoura (about 10mins by car) or Albufeira (about 20mins by car) and they could be fairly expensive.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again, next time with a hire car.

Just a few kilometres from the busy seaside town of Vilamoura, this hotel has just over 20 rooms and is in a small village. The rooms have balconies and are very modern and clean, the swimming pool is never very busy and there are plenty of sunbeds and parasols. Breakfast is simple but plentiful and self-service. The reception staff are wonderfuland cpould not be more helpful. This is everything we expected and just what we wanted, no riff-raff as Basil Fawlty would put it.

Room Tip: There is a superb Panoramic Cafe opposite the hoteldoing salads and toasties and ice creams. Just 10...

This is a beautiful hotel with spotless rooms and helpful staff. It is situated in a small village and a short drive from Vilamoura and Albufeira. We have always had a hire car so getting about has not been a problem. I really liked the help yourself continental breakfast and the friendly welcoming atmosphere. This is great base to explore the Algarve or just unwind and relax by the pool.We have been to this hotel 4 times and definitely intend to return.

I have absolutely no idea what makes the investors interested to build a (small) business style hotel in such a village. OK N125 is 2min away - maybe it was the plan to offer a value accomodation for overnight travellers?

Rooms are decent, clean with AC and soundproof (no idea why the other traveller here coulnd't sleep and the isolation has 2 (!) windows! TVs have been exchanged to flat screen and all bathrooms have a tub - however - latin Europe! - mould starts to grow in the corners of the tiles....

In the nice (!) village there is not much, not even a restaurant, breakfast at hotel is mediocre contintental as in most Portugese Hotels (coffee from machine, thin orange juice). The unheated pool is for relaxing - even it seems that this will be used also my nearby private homes?

Restaurant Tip: for dinner go to the casa de pasto right at the entrance of N125 or the nearby village Ferreiras "Retiro de Nunes" has great prices and excellent food run by 3 women - at the roundabout in the village center turn to south (N125) and then take first turn left (sign!)

Note that if you plan to use your smartphone or tablet there is not yet any kind of free Wifi (there is Wifi but not for guests) - you need to plug in a DSL cable (to netbook only)!!

Room Tip: rooms upstairs are brighter

My friend and I enjoyed our 5 day stay at the hotel, clean, well presented and helpful staff.
Boliqueime is a small local town, plenty of places to eat, we recommend Bolitasca, O Gabriel Snack Bar and the local coffee shop opposite the hotel. Ideal for Solo and females travellers, Vilamoura beach and harbour 10 minutes in taxi, (hotel can arrange local driver) plenty of restaurants.

Room Tip: most rooms have a balcony and en-suite.

Clean, airey, bright air conditioned hotel. Staff very helpful, houskeepers couldn't do enough for you. Eat as much as you like breakfast. Yes it is in a quiet town but there were at least half a dozen places to eat and drink, and about 7 or 8 cafes. a round trip to Vilamoura or Albufeira was 25 euros (you can pre book the hotel's designated driver which I recommend you do in advance to avoid disappointment). Me and my friend had a great time and we're in our 30's so it not just for the oldies! I will be going back later this year with my husband.

It was my second time on this Hotel, and for sure, not the last one ! Nice location, nearby Boliqueime center, 10 Kms from lovely Vilamoura beaches. Rooms are Ok, as well as breakfast. Small, but correct swimingpool, where you can spend some relaxing moments. Nice people will help and advise on reception. Correct price, in line with expectations. An experience to repeat !
