The studio apartment was spotlessly clean and much bigger than we were expecting. It was also very well equipped, and even had a proper oven and a dishwasher (although we didn't use either!).The free breakfast was amazing - lots of lovely fruit and a great selection of breads and rolls, plus the usual cold meat/cheese and cooked breakfast. It's a bit of a walk from the town and the beach, but lovely and quiet because of this.

A really lovely stay in a well run, delightful hotel. Efficient and incredibly friendly and cheerful staff. Comfortable rooms, well kept areas throughout. A really amazing swimming pool and surrounding area. Maybe a touch stuffy here and there which might be suited to those who take their golf very seriously. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay during our five nights there and were so impressed by the cheerful and helpful attitude of staff. A special mention should be made of Gabriel who seemed to oversee the catering of all the restaurants and breakfast buffet - he was great and we wondered when he found time to sleep.
We will certainly return to this hotel - it was perfect for a great break.
Arrived at the hotel without any problems with check-in (11.30pm) we had booked a sea view with balcony I had emailed the hotel prior asking for a high floor our room was 708 and was not disappointed with the view of the lovely beach. The room was spacious, comfortable and we could pick up the WIFI in the room which was a bonus. The staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful. We book in as self -catering cannot comment on the food in the hotel. Nearby is a supermarket and there are plenty of lovely restaurants in the area for eating out. We used the local bus EVA the bus stop can be found on the roundabout in Alvor and used it for going into Lagos which has a beautiful marina, history and beaches. We used the local taxi for a trip into Praia da Rocha which is busier compared to Alvor. Boat trips can be purchased in Alvor along the beach we took a trip to Silves with Corinne1 which seated 6 people and the experience was very pleasant.
We came at night and it was hard to find and a bit overgrown. The layout is a bit confusing but once there, we found the rooms to be nice, bed comfortable (but roll away not so good), good breakfast, and the staff was very nice. Yes, we would definitely return.
this is one of the best hotels i have ever stayed in. from the minute we arrived everything was perfect. staff were lovely and helpful. hotel room was good. food excellent. hotel was set in lovely grounds plenty of sun beds pool was spotless and the beach was next to the hotel could not have asked for anything better would visit again.
