5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great value for a last minute stay for a football trip. Waking up and opening the shutters onto a great pool and breakfast area was so refreshing after getting in late the night before. Before we left Jorge opened up the breakfast area early to accommodate us and couldn’t be nicer. There is a SPAR close by and the strip is only a €4 taxi or a 30 min walk.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Have stayed here before and both times have been very happy with service, cleanliness , comfort and staff. Was very disappointed this time due to the pool not being open nor the bar. I understand that it is out of season but the fact I wasn’t told before our visit left me annoyed and with two very disappointed children not being able to have a swim.

4/5 Good

Good for the price. The sort of place you use more as a pad to explore from. Quality of room and facilities not going to set world on fire. Nice bar and pool tables though.

Great 2 week stay
Me and my partner booked a 2 week stay here, and it was a great break. I have to say, first impressions of the room were...No balcony!..but it didn't bother us as we didn't spend much time in the room. The staff from arrival to departure were amazing, Paulo & Bae in particular were very friendly and hard working! The hotel was a 10min walk from a couple of beaches and restaurants. If we came back, we would stay here again
