Beautiful stay near the beach. The beach is fantastic, sunbeds on the beach (but you have to get up quite early if you want to have one. ) Peaple working in the hotel are very kind. Good if you have a car to make some trip around. read hotel review

Very pleasant hotel with a good atmosphere. We can, 't understand the sometimes poor reviews. We felt there very well. Our room in the new building on the pool very tastefully and generously with a small terrace. The beach and the restaurants on the beach great. Alvor in 15 minutes within walking distance to lots of small stores and nice and delicious and relatively inexpensive restaurants. Everywhere very friendly portuguese. Are definitely coming again.

Not recommendable

  • September 2012
Outside hui-inside pfui! Two star for this hotel would be flattered. Ancient box, totally Worn. Catering an impertinence, tasteless, overcooked. No fresh foods, At best vermatschtes from mainland or freezer. Before my only caution is half board. Breakfast Isn't recommendable, as daily routine. The hotel is located somewhat away that is why a car Advisable. The area by the pool is acceptable. Beach chairs and towels abundant. The beautiful beach is accessible by elevator, also there were beach chairs. Our room was on the top Floor at the far right end, therefore a terrific view of the entire beach to ... Alvor and Lagos. The hotel we can, in spite of the wonderful location, not recommend. read hotel review

You can eat from 7,95 Euro to 25 Euro per man for a whole menu. In the hotel is the breakfast wonderful, simply everything: every day are fresh waffles made, it makes someone scrambled or fried eggs to order. There is fresh fruits, breads, types of sausage ... and cheese, Croissants, cakes, yoghurt, muesli, simply everything. Unfortunately there are the people who reserve sun loungers permitted, which unfortunately is. We have and just a umbrella at the beach and we put in the sand. Towels from the hotel. On the whole but nevertheless a great vacation with much friendliness of the staff. Can only be recommended read hotel review
