Everyone that we dealt with from the staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was good. The location was good. About a 10 minute walk to the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

We drove to the Algarve. Parking spaces are tight, but we always found a place to park the car. Baia Cristal proximity to the beaches is fantastic. Front desk reception extremely helpful. We walked to the Praia de Vale Centeanes every day. Kayak trip to Benagil Algar and dinner on the beach were a highlight.

One night only

Posted 21 Jun 2019 on Hotels
I picked this place on a last minute decision to attend the Carvoeiro Black and White festival. So we didn't arrive until early evening and departed the next day. We had an hour by the main pool/patio area that was very pleasant, but the pool was a little too cool to enter. I've stayed in other Portuguese hotels and I think it must be due to regulations that you must wear a swimming cap for indoor pools, we didn't want to pay €5 each for a cap so gave that a miss. Room was spacious with a fridge, TV etc. Bathroom was a little bated but functional. Breakfast finished too early on Sunday (10am) and check out was non negotiable noon. All in all a good value stay.

While the overall experience was excellent the room I received was somewhat dated and in need of a refresh. One of the closets in the bedroom would not close fully as the door was handing off its' hinge and a couple of the drawers in one of the units would not close properly as it appeared that they were of their runners. Besides those (very) small items the hotel, the staff (a particular shout out to Julio and Eduardo who could not have been more professional), the available amenities were first class.

Relaxing with great views.

We got a good deal and thought our whole experience was great value for money. Beautiful views of the ocean, peaceful and quiet resort. Everything you need for a relaxing few days is available. Friendly and helpful staf, especially Rui in the restaurant. Good buffet morning and evening. Location perfect to explore the beautiful Algarve. Will be back!!!
