Good for the money

I hated their towels, the bath towels are very small, and as thin as a paper. Breakfast is whatever, but location is amazing, absolutely loved the location, smack in the middle of all hustle and bustle.

Above expectations

Having read other reviews, we were ready for some of the things one might complain about, but overall it was better than expected! It is only a 3 star, so don't expect 4 or 5 star comfort. Rooms are basic, but spacious & very clean. Bed hard but two singles bolted together so very big. Shower worked really well all the time. Loo seat was loose and not fixed in the week we were there. Surely the cleaners should report this as well? Useful fridge in room, but no kettle or tea making facilities. Air con worked well. Booked a room with full sea view, but unfortunately were in the half of the hotel overlooking the Algarve Casino in front, so sea and beach view only half, but lovely. Also the balconies have been filled in with a tin sheet, so unable to sit & look out. Obviously some idiot had climbed over in the past! Restaurant seemed fairly busy both lunch & evening with inexpensive menu but we ate out as there are so many other really good eating establishments nearby. Shame there is no bar in the hotel, but there is a very busy one next door! Breakfasts were not for the full English eater, but plenty of continental type breads, ham, cheeses & fruits. Hot dog sausages, scrambled & hard boiled eggs every day with chorizo & what was described as bacon on alternate days. Staff all very pleasant & helpful without exception. Three lifts, all good. Parking very limited at hotel, but plenty on waste land not far behind hotel, had no problems finding spaces. Would def stay again!
