Nice but not 5*
Nice hotel but not worthy of 5 stars. its more like a standard 4* hotel. The reception staff were very miserable not very friendly or smiley. The breakfast was mediocre. Rooms were nice but basic. No mini bar you have to choose what you want and pay in advance so basically like a room service. Room service food was nice

10/10 Exceptional

Great few days stay, staff was very friendly, location is good close to lots of restaurants and little shops for gifts. Located right in front of the port and very close to the other one in Olhao. I also had birthday during the stay and I was send a cake with a champagne from the hotel! We didn’t have much expectations but we were very happy with our little break in Olhao/Faro.

Great Hotel, except 1 member of staff
Everything about the Hotel was excellent - Location to resort, Size of Room, Clean, Breakfast. Only x2 issues - Wi-Fi was a bit erratic, so don't attempt to use for video calls. One staff member on reception was very rude (the other 8 were perfect) refused to except a Delivery Order, in this day and age may people use a delivery service for items required of forgot, only asked for item to be held at reception and was told abruptly NO.
