Property condition


  • Disliked: Staff & service
Okay if you like hill climbing

Room was nice, no amenities at the hotel, breakfast mediocre, small and not very comfy bed, only 4 coat hangers available, staff not at all friendly but location was awful not even on a proper road, surrounded by rocky dusty scrubland and too far away from everything. The only pair of shoes you would require would be an old pair of hiking boots.

This is a lovely, small hotel/B&B between Portimao and Alvor. If you want to avoid the scrum in those towns, this is your place, peaceful and quiet. It has it's own private beach or you can walk east to a larger public beach. Our room was nice, as was the lobby, rooftop pool and breakfast room. The courtyard & large event room both need new paint & stucco/flooring. Breakfast was typical for Portugal B&Bs - some bread & pastry selections, cheese & ham, hot eggs, yogurt, dry cereal and not much fruit. The reception staff were helpful, although they didn't know much about Alvor restaurants, nor did they warn us we could walk there (30 min) in less time than it would take to drive and find parking! If you go, visit Praia Tres Irmanos, a simply gorgeous beach between V Nautilus & Alvor.
