Very nice hotel set in beautiful gardens close to beach, golf, and natural lagoons. Food very good but expensive although prices very similar in this area wherever you go. Staff friendly and cleanliness top rate. Rooms vary but those facing gardens and sea side view are lovely. Air con and free wi fi a bonus. Dining/breakfast on terrace a nice change. A bit out of the way unless you are content to stay put. 5kilometers to nearest centre.
we enjoyed a very relaxing holiday with our 4 year old and 18 month old children, we had an upgrade on arrival to a superior 2 bed apartment, 4th floor of main block-very large, very clean, slightly dated furnishing (a bit eighties), large balcony, panoramic sea view, also the lift up was a great help with small children and all their kit. The down side was that the view also overlooked the car park and other hotel block. Road noise was also pretty constant-I would recommend specifying pool side block. However facilities were good-indoor pool excellent given that by november the outdoor pool was a little chilly, local restaurants handy and child friendly, beach beautiful and literally on the door step- if you want a more 'strip like' reort rocha beach is a 15 min walk away, equally easily accessible were smaller cove like beaches-over all would recommend this hotel.

We had 3 days break away from the 3 kids (twins 16 months & one 3 year old!) so all we wanted was to kick back and relax and get pampered. This place and the people delivered! (And some!)
Best thing for me, the espresso martini in Zanzibar!!
We went to this hotel for our honeymoon and had a wonderful week. The first thing that struck us was how personal it was - walking in there's no long reception counter and concierge desk; there's just a small desk with two tub chairs, and you are welcomed with wonderful tea and a cool flannel while the lovely staff casually take you through the details of your welcome pack - which for us included a free bottle of wine in the restaurant, fresh towels for the pool everyday, and a range of other vouchers (massage discounts etc). The pool is wonderful - don't listen to reviews saying it's cold - it's perfect, and very clean and well maintained. The whole pool area is very quiet - if you want total relaxation and a place that doesn't have any pool signs saying 'no petting' then this is the hotel for you! The staff at this hotel are all fantastic - I wouldn't have one complaint about any of them. Great breakfast with a wide variety of different food. The hotel's location means that you often have to get in a taxi to go to a restaurant, but for us this wasn't a problem at all because there are wonderful places for 5 euros in a taxi. Don't leave this hotel without going to Joompra restaurant, and you should also walk to Lorenco beach which has a superb restaurant. Supermarket is 5 mins away and is great, fully stocked with everything you might need.
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel, from the minute we stepped foot into reception till the moment we checked out, all of the staff at the hotel went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. The facilities at the hotel is what you'd expect for a 5* hotel and there was variety of food served during breakfast and dinner to suit every individual's needs. I have to say that there is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel and would definitely recommend this place to friends and families. I am also looking to book a holiday at this hotel again next summer!
"Great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff."
Had an amazing time here. Our room was really big with a separate kitchen and a large living room/dining area and a great balcony. Supplied loads of kitchen equipment. Only marked the room comfort down as the bed could be softer. Used the indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi everyday. The staff were great and helped us with everything we asked for. Close to two supermarkets and 5/10 min walk to the beach.
