Me and my wife spent a nice week here, the breakfast is really good, didn't think much of the evening meals the last 2 nights we ate out and found the local restaurants to be very good value, we don't tend to go back to the same place twice but if we did we would have no problems booking here...

Just returned from a week at this wonderful hotel and fishing port of Olhao in The Algarve... Booked this for a quiet getaway with my hubby for my 50th. Our first time in Portugal and we hit the jackpot! The hotel is wonderful, the staff cannot do enough for you and are so friendly and warm. The place is immaculate... More

We had a wonderful time at this hotel, the rooms had the wow factor and we had a lovely ensuite. The room we had was at the left side of the hotel and was great as although it only had a slight sea view the sun was full on when we left the beach/pool and went upstairs to shower and... More

I am just back for a 10 night stay at this hotel. Great hotel. Perhaps not quite a 5 star hotel by home standards but certainly a 4 star plus. Id recommend a sea view as the views over the ria Formosa and outstanding. If your booking through a travel agent don't pay the sea view upgrade. Jet2 wanted around... More

Just spent 10 nights here and was very pleased with the hotel. Good rooms with nice balconies, free to use safe and very good aircon. Had the village view which was fine and didnt think the additional cost of a seaview was worth the extra as only really slept in the room. Pool area very nice, plenty of sunbeds available.... More

We had a five day stay here in August and I really couldn't fault the hotel. The minor concerns people have raised didn't impact on our enjoyment at all. The best feature is the staff who were always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Beers in Happy Hour were 1.75 and it did make me very happy. Another plus was the wifi... More
