Disliked: Staff & service
They wanted a deposit for 25 euro (refundable) each for pool towels and one euro every time to have fresh towels. Also the cleaners did not have additional bath, face, or other towels. The food was average

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Had a great stay with a beautiful spacious accommodation and large balcony in ‘romantic suite’. Great service, staff were really helpful and provided a lot of information. Breakfast was really good. Gym and additional amenities were not quite on par with rest of the resort but enjoyed our massage at the spa however a little pricey.

5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The best example I could use of how attentive and caring the staff is, is that a group member of our trip had her birthday on the trip. Without us having to ask, remind or notify the manager send over a beautiful (large) cake with candles and flowers and a complimentary hand written card wishing her the best and lovely birthday. The time we went in was off season - as such there was less to do but nonetheless the peace and quiet served us well on our vacation. Really recommend this stay - but would also suggest traveling by car as the distances can get quite large if you wish t visit other regions of Algarve. The public system is not that accessible or great.

Great houses well equipped and good comfort
We had 3 nice bedrooms and comfortable beds. The kitchen is well equipped. Service marvellous. The SPA did not offer warm shower, but nice swimmingpool with hot sauna and Turkish steam bath. Nice floor heating in the apartment. Excellent place even for a winter stay.
