This is a lovely hotel staff very friendly & helpful, especially at reception desk. This is my second time hear & hopefully won't be my last. If there is one thing I would have an issue wit is wine at dinner is very over priced. Other than that great.

I arrived late in the evening and the reception staff were very friendly and efficient. The rooms were spacious but a bit dated. Bar and restaurant staff were also very friendly. I didn't like the breakfast. I would stay here again. Scott

Great hotel. I really recommend getting a room with a sea view balcony. The weather in the Algarve in November is amazing. Zero rating for Jet2 Holidays though: Had to return home for a family emergency. Jet2 showed zero compassion or humanity. Thank you Amanda.....

Very nice hotel by the sea and near Albufeira (free shuttle to go there: 5 times a day during low season isn't enough...). Ensure you book a sea-view room for the beautiful scenery.
