Spacious rooms. Pleasant walk to beach.

Posted 22-Jul-2017
Pros: Good value in quieter location but still with range of local restaurants.
Location: Beach and some cafes, restaurants and bars.
Excellent value, spacious room. Quieter location with pleasant walk to beach, about 15/20 mins. There is a hotel shuttle a few times a day to beach but we didnt use it. The beach has beautiful sandstone cliffs and plenty of space on beach. For bigger town Albuferia is 25 mins bus ride away, we went on public bus.

Nice hotel for families.

Posted 07-Jun-2017
Lovely big 2 bedroom apartment. Fully equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Towel change daily and linen change frequently. Pool towels available for €10. Safe €2.50 a day. North pool busier with children but has outside bar, snack bar and entertainment. South pool quieter and have to cover up to walk inside to the bar. Good free shuttle bus to beach and Albufeira. Good standard of cleanliness. Only 2 complaints. Food good quality but limited choice and bar service in evening very slow. 7 km walk either way to Vilamoura (lovely- take the toddy train round) and Albufeira (hilly walk). Local bus stop right outside hotel door €3.50 to Albufeira. About €13 in a taxi. Fair range of bars, restaurants, supermarket, a few shops and a bank within 5 to 10 minutes walk.

Great stay

Posted 21-May-2017
Great big apartment room for me and my friends - clean, spacious, homely. Lovely and helpful staff - some receptionists were not as informed as we liked, so resulted in difficulty when planning activities/outings, one staff said there's nothing in the area, but the next day we found two tourist offices nearby with an abundance of things to do... Food was decent & well priced, but could be more varied with each night. Fun entertainment at the hotel. Nice two pools. Quite a long walk to the beach (25 mins), but it's a great big beach to enjoy. Generally, a good stay!

Nice remote location

Posted 30-Apr-2017
Pros: The Location,staff and pool area
Cons: Repairs to the room
Location: Location is good, beach, small commercial area with bars and supermarkets, bike hire , day trips
Had a lovely relaxing time,the staff were very accommodating, the main swimming pool is good and is appropriately secluded, the room was good and met our needs but needs some repairs to the walls and bath. being in a room nearest the bar during the evening entertainment it could get a little noisy but this generally finished early. The Hotel is ideally situated away from the main town and has easy access to the nearby small commercial area and beach. There is a travel office in the area which offers many attractions/trip, we hired bikes and went on a trip to a local market The transfers to and from the airport worked really well and the booking in and out was efficient We did not do the "All inclusive" package and afterwards that was a good choice for us I would certainly stay there again

Great hotel in a great location

Posted 21-Apr-2017
Stayed here as part of the Salford harriers junior training camp. It was close to shops, restaurants and the beach. We had two pools to choose from. Breakfast was varied and tasty. The rooms were spacious and had everything you needed - only complaint was that the double bed wasn't very comfortable. Overall a great stay and would return.

Mark, Julie , Oliver & Claudia Cook # holiday 2017

Posted 16-Apr-2017
Pros: Very clean, great sized rooms perfect for a family of 4, serviced every day and left spotless also very trust worthy staff and always friendly.
Cons: Double glazed windows at the front of the hotel to stop the noise from the road this was most peoples suggestion who we spoke with.
Location: A bit of a walk to the beech but we liked the exercise so it didn't bother us to much, but might be and issue with less active people.
A pleasant stay ideal location for the type of holiday we was looking for which was based around a running/training holiday which was attended by over 85 people most in the same hotel from Salford Harriers junior section. The weather was great so a good choice , we did have a few issues with the electric as the kettle kept tripping the electric but the kettle and toaster was replaced with new ones which resolved this. Also the water was down for a few hours one day but it was all the hotel, these things do happen but not to much of an issue really . More entertainment around the hotel would be a good suggestion maybe an out side gym or pitch & put area for the kids plus the pool ( north Pool) could maybe be heated as it was very cold! The hotel shuttle service was very useful for getting about and it was free, you just needed to book in advice it took you to the main resort so you could relax and feel confident you would get collected and returned to the hotel safely. In all we would return to the hotel we never really had any bad experiences and felt it was a really safe environment for the children which is what we always look for on family holidays.

Pros: Relaxed, friendly, great staff,
Location: 20 minute walk to Praia da Falesia, and 2 minutes from a variety of cafes, shops, restaurants, bike hire and the usual excursion/boat trip agency
Lovely quiet area 15 minutes out of Albureira, but with the courtesy bus running into Albufeira or the nearest beach every couple of hours this was no problem. The 2 bed apartment was a good size, the kitchen well equipped and the beds comfortable. Hotel was quiet as my stay was early in the season. Glad we didnt go 'All Inclusive' as the restaurant was a limited. ( the food was ok, just a bit boring)
