The highlight for us was the food and food service. Most guests on half board eating buffet style which was good however we often chose the a la carte menu or asked the chef to produce something for us. The presentation, flavours and general standard were exceptional, using fresh ingredients and reasonably priced. The waiting staff made a special effort as they also enjoyed doing full service as opposed to clearing plates from the buffet. Definitely recommend. It was a fair walk to other restaurants however it wasn't necessary to eat out. Generally the beaches in this area are fairly ... small with steep access by steps however all sandy and clean. Lovely cliff walks and beautiful villas all around this area. read hotel review

Our Stay at Baia Cristal
  • Recommended hotel

  • Beach holiday
  • July 2014
The Hotel has 125 bedrooms and has a charming atmosphere. The Staff are very friendly and the hotel is kept very clean. We opted for the bed and breakfast option becuase we enjoy eating out as a family and exploring the area. The guest range varies throughout the seasons, but we found it to be a good mix during our stay. The pool is kept very clean. Salt water pools have advantages and disadvantages but on the whole we think a salt water pool is better for you, particulary if staying in the pool all day. read hotel review
  • Room
    4.0

    The room we had is a good size and very clean. There is a TV that has limited English channels but adequate. There is a fridge and basic cooking facilities that we didn´t use. There is a safe for an additional charge and a terrace area to dry clothes etc. The only problem with our room was that it was near the main entrance and very noisy. There is no insulation between rooms and this means you can hear everything. No internet facility available in the room. There is a charge for wifi available only in the hotel foyer.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    There is one main restaurant and one main bar. The breakfast is good and there is a mix of staff, some enguage and add value but others are either shy or dont have the language skills. All kept clean, but the staff struggle to cater for virtually all the guests taking breakfast at 10am!! We would suggest that seating is provided outside during breakfast time. The entertainment of an evening is excellent and relaxed.

  • Service
    4.0

    The staff are very friendly on the whole. There are one or two people who dont make the effort to enguage with the guests and this lets the others down. The room maid is excellent, very friendly and does a very good job. She added value to our stay. Unfortunately we were not offerred any help to our room with our luggage and there is no waiting service around the pool and this is what seperates a four star hotel from a five star one. Our room was noisy due to locaton. We asked to move but no other rooms were available. The kids club is a big let down. The staff did not enguage with the children. This was dependant on what staff were working.

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    There is a 5 euo supplement for tennis. Table tennis is free.There are bikes available but at a charge per hour or day. Clean towels are provided daily for use by the pool at no charge. There are hammoks free of charge and the pool side is adequate, very clean and tidy. The local beaches are again clean and tidy and provide great facilities. The only trouble is that the water is from the Atlantic and hence cold!! There is an indoor pool at the hotel and this is very good, supplemented by the spa, sauna, steam room and our personal favourite, the beauty theropy centre. The massages are exceptional and offer good value for money together with the other beauty treatments on offer.

  • Location

    The location is about 20min walk from the Carvoeiro centre but there is a smaller beach Vale Centeanes about 7min walk away. There are two local mini supermarkets about 15 min walk from the hotel. The hotel provides the best car rental service in the area. The car we hired was a Fiat Punto and was immaculate and fuel efficient.

Great value! If you pay more can ask for more. We were the 5. times here and have always everything gotten which we booked. And this is a subjective impression: the kitchen is better either the hotel has a new chef or the staff has learned. Book immediately in the hotel it was worth it for both sides. read hotel review

With the hotel it concerns a 'old', accordingly, the facilities, everything is a bit 'dated'. The room 341 was poor, stains everywhere on the walls and ceilings, made a worn impression. The perfect room service should not forget, that was good. With the booked a rental car, by the hotel, i must say that this car completely was damaged, still, some individual selected damages meticulously listed. The treaty was handwritten the recorded smart repair 1000 Euro extra costs! Very strange and unusual. read hotel review

A really recommendable hotel for those seeking peace! Our room lay in the rear range of the plant with view of the sea, between the palm trees and agaves to see. Only the bathroom had seen better days and could be reconditioned (bathtub jumped off, faucet leaked, dubious stool under the sink) We as a vegetarian were very satisfied with the varied dishes, from which we delicious dinner was being put together. The location was as a base for trips very suitable. read hotel review

The charm of the former ddr preferred and the staff gladly persuade left, has its home found. Horrible meal with always the same frühstücksausstattung. Cheapest sausage and cheese always the same. Chef or cook has absolutely nothing on it. Alternation zero. Complaints were taken note and it is absolutely nothing! Abgeranzte suite, those at best only by the size of saving grace would be their true. Fixtures mostly broken. Dirty bedlinen and not cleaned corners. Kulturlose aushilfsbedienungen without manners - the guest was for the service and for a sch. Service then also still give tips. It seems, than whether ... the feitertage only trained as staff are premise, the otherwise possibly as screwdriver or refuse collection work. Horrible performance with an equally horrible guests. British and german subclass, mostly ddr with this chic in billigsklamotten and partly unwashed-smelling the breakfast - either in the food get in the evening. The hit was the sharp green lighting, the sight everything still horrible to be. As this sad event to 4 stars, will lasting mystery will remain. Why is there no four zitonen or something like that, which you can give? Unfortunately, the nice carvoeiro by such etablissements devalued. Never again dark Cristal! read hotel review

For people who are a lot on the way i think the hotel is good. The double room is big enough for 2 people, for 3 people just sunday Balcony was small (for courtyard), bathroom is also big enough (with cosmetic mirror and hair-dryer) The facilities (flat screen tv, safe, fridge, balcony, telephone) the rooms was already a bit older, but clean.

    I can only judge the breakfast as i at noon and in the evening outward eaten: meals are varied and of good quality, there should be something for everyone there, bread, rolls, yogurt, cold cuts, cereals and fruit are scrambled eggs, bacon and other warm things. Coffee from the automat, dte to even the aufbrühen and juice and water. The furnishing in the dining room makes up for the decor in the rooms, rustic but clean.

    The staff at the reception and in the restaurant of the hotel are friendly and helpful, but the one or the other a little jollier could be ☺.

    About 65 kilometer from the airport (Faro) away, transfer time about 50 minutes There are shopping opportunities in the place of carvoeiro (small shops the supermarket name) in about 15-20 minutes on foot or one drives with the shuttle bus almost in front of the hotel, but could be, that is not always was punctual. Excursion possibilities were offered directly from the hotel (cheaper but mostly in english, if you were lucky also in german), as well as from the travel agent (more expensive but german) offered. Right on the beach is also a trip with a boat to the grotte offered. Restaurants and bars as well as a small beach is also in the town of carvoeiro.

    There's a restaurant, a pool bar and a 'normal' bar. The food (we had half board) was relatively onesided. To the english breakfast there was always the same (hot + 2 types of cheese + 4 sorts sausage). With dinner there was a salad buffet, a fish, a meat and a pasta dish, as well as side dishes, potatoes (in different forms...) , rice and vegetables. The dessert buffet was very sweet and repeated themselves frequently. We booked half-board and wouldn't book it again either, for 2 0 €per person we in the place clearly eaten better. Reasonably priced the drinks were okay, the bar was more expensive than at the village.

Almost perfect for a relaxing beach holiday. The hotel is perched on the steep coast-walk to the beautiful beach centianes 5 minutes - the house is slightly tired but clean. 4 stars, as in the south, a too much. Evening almost always live music, in the village carvoeiro one in 25 minutes on foot or with the rarely driving bus. The hotel offers also a free shuttle bus around 10,30 at. Rental car is advisable, within an hour are worthwile ausflugszile, as loulé silves or Lagos to reach. Many beautiful beaches are also nearby. Conclusion: hotel is for the ... price completely okay- carvoeiro is located on the most beautiful coast of the Algarve and has much charm. read hotel review

Overall, we felt in this visible, nice hotel felt good. Great location directly at the cliffs. Nice, clean the garden/pool area. Spacious, quiet, clean room with a balcony and a good view of the ocean. But: english breakfast with always the same (discounter-) cold cuts. Great is the feigenmus! The dinner boasts fantasielosigkeit at the buffet daily the same fish in other, blander sauce (and the in Portugal!). No highlights, if you are squishy lasagna or meat balls in tomato sauce not stops. Half board is not worthwhile in the pleasant and cheap restaurants in the surrounding area with really ... good portugisischer kitchen (make sure to try the swordfish in the restaurant right on the algar seco!). A rental car despite bus connection very recommendable. Be careful! With a very low, easy to overlooked stage in the entrance area of the hotel is a evil stolperfalle before. The waiters are very pleasant and to endeavor itself fair, the mood in the dining room - in spite of the food-to illuminate ☺ read hotel review

Diet with the half-board including-no 4 stars!

For a short break the hotel is - provided without catering-okay if you (!) In the hotel eats. True i've stayed at many different regionan on this wider world (of USA, Karibik over Europa and Afrika (Egypt) until Asien) but it was so bad i have never eaten! There is every cafeteria food better and who claimed the opposite can either not cook, has no taste & is still blind and does not which was served or has absolutely not any idea. For dinner you should better to eat out a restaurant visit - recommendable is for example the o-stop ..., Jan or urima. With the half board it is not only the small choice, but, in particular, the poor preparation-coffee & soups = instant relaxation or is not what you expect or the vortagsgemüse'strained' and with water stretched. The breakfast more like a youth hostel as a star hotel - for example bacon were mostly mushy, egg half raw, scrambled eggs from a fertigshaker, jams in liquid condition etc. Etc. In the evening then ungewürzte meals with bad and not coordinated side dishes (for example through-cooked mushy pasta but al denter rice, chips or kartoffelwürfel in the daily change-in short: just bad and no 20,00 Euro worth (!) For the same amount or less can one in the surrounding restaurants fancy and diverse dishes. What the links to other towns you can on sightseeing or shopping trips from tour operators go back, but (that is my subjective sensing) rather a mass same-you better take a rental car (at the airport from sixt or a well-known companies including risk). The public transport are given unless you on workdays runs (mo-fr) and before 20 o'clock back would otherwise remains only a taxi as an alternative. Funny a mountainbike tour * my company and i had lots of fun in spite of the pain the next day. In the port you know at least as' hilly ' it really is and the descent and ascent in the center of carveiro a walk is:o. read hotel review

Also during the 3. stay we were pleasantly surprised, that something to the positive development. We could of course not in every room look. But that we stayed in was recently renovated. We had at the last stays very much luck with the weather a room (south facing terrace ) with a view of the sea and so is the (stone ) Algarve also and especially in the winter a feast for the eyes and soul. The light and the colors are a expulsion for the senses. read hotel review
