We had booked 4 nights at this resort in October and it was an amazing experience. The resort is a bit difficult to find but just as well. It is isolated and the only thing one can hear there is the sound of the ocean and watch the beautiful night sky with very little less in the darkness - quite... More

My daughter chose SA for her wedding venue, and it was excellent.We had a two bed suite for two nights and couldn't fault anything. The catering for the wedding was superb, as was the two breakfasts, three lunches and one evening meal.The latter rates as one of the best meals ever. My wife and daughters used the spa for facials,... More

This is a small resort in a beautiful location overlooking the cliffs and sea. It has an infinity sea pool, smaller freshwater pool, and heated indoor pool which is a great offering for a place of this size. We enjoyed a couple's massage and the food at lunch was lovely. Staff are pleasant and helpful and our sea view suite... More

The Alba Resort and Spa is approximately a 15 minute drive from Carvoeiro the nearest town. It is situated almost at the cliff edge which leads down, via steps to a lovely small sandy beach with a wooden shack located half way down serving pizzas and crepes amongst other fare. It is quite pricy compared to the town (Crepe 7... More

Hotel was great and the staff were amazing especially sander who took great care of all the wedding guests. Only down points I would have is 1. You really need a car as nothing is in walking distance. 2. There is no entertainment provided. 3. The food could be warmer for my personal taste. Overall I spent 10nights here full... More

We had our wedding in this hotel. The staff were very friendly, helpful and helped to make our day extra special. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. Surrounded by amazing cliffs and a small beach down a little walk way. The rooms are also beautiful and very well kept. We will be back for a peacefull retreat in the future!

If you are a true beach Hunter, stay here. The beach here is one of the nicest in Algarve. It's only a few minutes walk from the resort. As for the suites, they were very lackluster. Sterile even. I'm from America and the interior of the suites reminds me of any suburban house in the states. The restaurant was ok... More
