Even though it was out of season all the facilities were open and in immaculate condition. The pool areas are fantastic and the indoor gym all in good functional order. The food at the restaurant was extremely reasonable and very good.

Great hotel, great location
This hotel has everything you need, well equipped large apartments, great pool with lots of sun loungers, right next door to long sandy beach and even a mini supermarket. The area is quiet (no bad thing), and you can walk to Praia da Rocha and Alvor. We had a airport pick up later in the day and were offered storage of our luggage and a courtesy room and towels free of charge.

I liked the access to the beach. I liked the connivence store. I didn’t like the beds at all. I didn’t like the the rooms didn’t have basic kitchen things like dish soap. I didn’t like the service, very very slow for ordering food and drinks.

Wonderful holiday
It was a great clean hotel right near the beach with a fully equipped kitchen. The bedroom was spacious and quiet.There was a nice balcony off the lounge and dining area. There is a restaurant and shop where you can get groceries on site Laundry was quite expensive for a small bag of clothes. I would definitely stay there again great value for money.
