A real find, during my stay , I overnight end in two hotels and while this is not on the waters edge . The size of the swimming pool more than compensated.Staff were friendly and efficient ant the apartment was more hotel suite.
Overall as good as it gets almost.

We had a really lovelly 3 bedroom Villa all with en suite, very clean and spacious. The Oasis Parque it self is well maintained and the Leisure Club is kept spotless. We used the tennis courts and pools and they have a cafe bar for food and drinks. Within 5 minutes walk down a hill there are two large hypermarkets that do everything you need. We dined in mostly and bought a small BBQ from Intermarche - lovely steaks from butchers counter!!
There are a couple of larger restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Our taxi driver dropped us at one the first night and very nice. There are small bars in the village but mainly for locals.
The beaches are a good 1 hours walk. to Alvor has no pavements so is not advised. Playa des Rochas is about the same via busy roads. But they are worth it once there. We got cabs back - for 6 of us it was 8 euros

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.

Took B@B. Great room, good b,fast. Good courteous staff. Nice pool and garden areas,spa and indoor pool. Gym facilities. View from room interesting but scrubland to front did not make for highly recommending. View across river and watching river traffic pleasant enough. Shops etc in easy reach. Rear of hotel area (ie streets) not very pleasant and local council should do more to brighten and clean it up to keep it in line with a good class resort.

The hotel has a great location. The hotel is by the beach offering amazing views of sea. There are lots of restaurants & shops nearby. The rooms are clean, and the facilities are excellent. The breakfast is good. It includes hot food, pastries, fruits, and a range of different juices as well as tea/coffee. The only downside is the free wifi. The internet is very very very slow.

Just came back from a stay at this hotel, which was close to the beach, bars and restaurants. The staff were extremely pleasant and efficient. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the breakfast extremely good. Would more than happily stay there again, wish all hotels were this good.

Our room smelled a bit like smoke, but the hotel addressed this up front, and did a very thorough cleaning the next day that took care of the problem. The staff person (Andrea, I believe) was extremely conscientious and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast facilities are decent, too, and we enjoyed our meals. I am not sure the hotel really offers a "sea view" as a building blocks most of the rooms for having this. A great staff person again makes all the difference.

Arrived early with airport hotel transfer but the appartment was ready with a nice wecome. Well equiped kitchen. Balcony. Large sitting room. Lots of room. Bathroom a bit dated and the TV was small.
The facilities were OK. Wifi only available downstairs but good value for a 24hr ticket. The sauna, indoor swimming pool area I found dissapointing with extra charge with no area/seating to relax but the outside pool and garden were excellent.
Just a few minutes walk to the lovely beaches and restaurants/shops. Felt very safe.
My hotel transfer was due to arrive mid-afternoon as I had an evening flight. They extended my check out until 2.30pm without any problem.
All staff very friendly and eager to help.
