The 'pestana viking' is a not too large area with a great view. The cleanliness was in order. We booked half-board, but not recommended. More in the lower area. The hotel has some positive sides, leaves but also many small negative impressions. We have on many positive reviews (with Holiday check) and were rather disappointed.

    The pool was extremely cold and the area without highlights. The staff at the pool was from friendliness still have heard nothing. The pool towels, the this staff only at certain times spends, are old and worn. The umbrellas were quite small and sonnenlichtdurchlässig. The indoor pool is a little bit warmer. There is also a steam room and sauna. However not deferred. From a spa-zone so you can not speak. A massage from us could unfortunately be booked, since 2 try no was to be met. (within the normal opening hours) In the lower area also 2 play spaces. In a is a small book corner with only about 20-30 books.

  • Service
    3.0

    We were in the 'check-in' friendly welcome. A small refreshment, you mustn't wait. The staff in the restaurant is friendly and speedy. Beware of the 'check out'! Here is a consider the bill as a matter of urgency. With us was a foreign booking mood. The couple before us wanted the hotel was once the payment of the dinner drinks, although the few always bar paid. Do not think, that these disagreements vorsetzlich are, but in any case one is here very sloppy.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    The breakfast is not very tasty. Sausage and cheese are quite tasteless. The staged scrambled eggs is stretched. For a 4 star hotel the really better. The dinner is as subjects buffet aligned, which constantly changed. The fish tasted really good. Meat dishes are not bad. The daily soup, saltless prepared. The desserts could be better. But beware! With under there was chaos. The dinner begins at 7:00 p. m.. Who 7:15 p. m. comes must sometimes 20 to 30 minutes wait, until a table becomes free. As there are for the size of the hotel too few tables. We had to several times to wait. Drinks you get also only at the beginning quickly. Later it takes a long time. And wait at the entrance the next guests to a free table.

    Our room (523) was really big and pleasantly furnished. We had a living area with a kitchenette, a guest toilet, a bedroom and an attached bathroom. There is enough storage space. The hair dryer was available in the bathroom. The balcony was large and with 4 chairs. The view to the sea was super, a 180 degree views. Living room and bedrooms each have a tv. The bathroom and the guests toilet are decorated in a modern style. The bathroom had some mold stains, although the fan constantly. The air conditioning is not much and is very weak.

    The two already numerously described beach bays left and right from the hotel are very pleasant. Supermarket not so extremely far away. A few restaurants are near the hotel. For a visit in armacao de pera is a car, taxi or similar to arrival. The distance is too large. But if you want a rental car for the time on site, it was quite pleasant. You can the whole algarve in different day trips to visit.

Actually very nice hotel, unfortunately can one over the food not a lot of good things to say. Little choice, lukewarm and tasty for this category of hotel too little. The beach is over a small, steep road to reach and a small Areal is there for the guests reserved. I can recommend the hotel, but for these prices should more be ordered. read hotel review

Large hotel plant a little into the years came. But this is not too bad as it was in recent years well renovated. The garden and the location on the cliff is really unique and very quiet. In the hotel there is a shopping area with international newspapers. Wi-fi is available in the lobby free of charge, for the room you get 24h codes for 1 Euro. The safe cost per day 2 Euro. The guest structure was at our travel time in july mostly families with children and couples, here and there saw one also times a few older ... people.

    Sport, as i said, there is a gym. Opposite the hotel is a hotel-owned soccer - /Volleyball- /basketball court. Entertainment there was little, but we didn't mind that. Water gymnastics and water ball at night. In the hotel's bar each evening another program (magician, live music, reptile show etc. ). To the pool: the foreign and children's pool are very clean and, as i could watch, controlled several times daily and the water. It is a salzwasserschwimmbad. Beach chairs were always enough, even if one comes later. Everywhere is pointed out that, that reserving of the beach chairs is prohibited and this is also kept. Towels free at the pool in/out privileges and after like be exchanged. The indoor pool is with fresh water filled and also very clean. But it is not very deep. I believe so 1.30 meter

    The hotel is about 40 minutes drive from the airport Faro away. Promenade after armacao de pera about 5-10 minutes by car. A complimentary hotel shuttle that runs 3 times daily back and forth (11 hours, 14 hours and 17 hours). A taxi ride costs about 5 Euro. Bus stop is right next to the hotel. In armacao de pera there are many shops and restaurants along the beach promenade. Furthermore, there is also a good number of restaurants, from the hotel within 10 minutes on foot, to reach are. Left and right next to the hotel are both bays the quick and easy to reach are.

  • Gastronomy

    We had booked only breakfast, which one from 8a 10,30 either in the restaurant or in the outdoor area beside the pool bar could. Both in each case in buffet form with identical selection. The breakfast was plentiful, lots of fruit, sausage, cheese, jam, muesli, cornflakes, vegetables, eggs, large selection of bread and rolls. Highlight: on two buffets a cook and makes omelets to order! The pool bar: prices are a bit expensive, but also the quantity you get quite large.

    The staff is really friendly and courteous. Some speak really good german, otherwise you could get but always with english. The room cleaning took place daily and thoroughly.

    We had a double room in the uppermost story with sea view. The room was on the side direction armacao de pera. Herrvorgagender view. The decor of the rooms is really good. Tv, air conditioning with funkfernbedinung, 2 armchairs, table, sideboard. Small builtin kitchen with fridge (with freezer compartment), microwave, sink and all the cutlery and crockery you could possibly need. The bathroom is also very spacious with a bath/shower and large sink.

For a beach vacation very well-suited hotel, since two beaches (bays ) in the immediate area are. Those who seek peace and quiet and no value on entertainment, is perfectly waived. The building is renovated, but has still the charm of the 80' it years. The four stars we could for breakfast not awarded. It is quite one-sided, fried eggs and crepes there is not at all. The dinner was with drawbacks good, however there was never fresh fried fish. The staff is friendly, without anzubiedern. The service in the hotel bar was limited, as the tables outside weren't served. ... Highly recommended it is, a car for 3-4 days to rents. The coast and the interior have many beautiful spots of rest and relaxation. read hotel review

We have a family-friendly hotel in beach proximity were looking for. There are 3 beautiful bays, the within walking distance with small children are well attainable. The hotel has definitely had its day, first one gave us a room with all around view of the old roof. The suites with a view of the sea (separate bedroom) are attractively decorated. The promising 'LTI-kids club was for us a letdown. It is only a abgedunkeltes games room, in the almost exclusively painting as employment was offered. The staff (communication on english difficult) have loud music, mutually painted, fudges and even watching. ... There were hardly any (german speaking) children. An outdoor area or playground, there were except for a baby slides unfortunately not. Also outside for the children no games. A shame, we have a LTI-pestana hotel expected more. read hotel review
