Loved my recent holiday at this resort! First time to the Algarve with great weather, good food and relaxing atmosphere, the cliffs surrounding the resort made the sceneries around more beautiful!! We requested for a room on the high floors and got a nice seaview on the 6th. The room was comfy and cosy and always cleaned up by Housekeeping daily. Also loved the little kitchenette complete with crockeries and cutleries. The Reception Desk were all friendly and helpful mostly and some of them were even open-minded enough to recommend eating places outside of the resort which made me feel they were giving their guests the best experiences ever and not into making money only. The facilities are great - swimming pool large enough for everyone, indoor ones a little chilly, sauna was nice, steam room-not sure if it was working properly, gym - small but adequate. Deck chairs were so relaxing - you're not allowed to reserve them, which was nice for a change! Breakfast was sufficient though crowded at peak times, but food was plentiful and varied. Buffet dinner at the Valhalla was different each night and accommodated many tastes buds. Had lunch once at the pool bar, nice and cosy but a little pricey. Loved the little walkway down the hill to the beach. The beach was private enough even though it was open to the public but there were a couple more beaches nearby for more privacy if needed. Beach restaurant a little pricey for main meals but alright for snacks. A lovely little snack bar-restaurant about 100 meters from the resort was our fave place for meals and snacks. Also have a couple of mini-markets and supermarket close enough to the resort, Martin's, Gloria's and Intermarche for the little stuffs you might need. I would definitely come back again for a nice relaxing holiday by the beach !!
