Good rooms and friendly staff. Indoor and outdoor pools are excellent. The food was also good, plenty choice. The inside bar is good for watching football. The entertainment was ok but it was hard to make a judgement as we were there near the end of the season. Overall it was a great place for a holiday.

To celebrate a "milestone" birthday we took a holiday to the Algarve and stayed at this hotel. There is just nothing that you could complain about. The rooms were very comfortable and spotless, water was always hot and the staff were all helpful. Meals are buffet and self serve, with a selection that will suit any diner. Chefs were available...

This hotel does pretty much everything it says on the tin. We had a lovely pool facing room and enjoyed sitting on our balcony soaking up some winter sun. The balconies are a decent size for two people and shaded from the wind which means they are lovely and sunny even in November. I think a pool view is a... More

Stayed here with Travel Department for a week in late October, when unluckily it rained all but three days! However, the room on 3rd floor was very comfortable - we had paid extra for "high floor with pool view" but when we checked into our room we were on 1st floor at end of hotel with view down two streets...

Nice pool area but no sunshades.Breakfast was fine with Chef on hand to cook omelettes. Evening buffet below average, poor quality food, especially in the meat... More

We stayed here for a week in early November - the hotel was full of more mature guests. Nationalities were mixed but everyone was quiet and respectful. It was very quiet and for younger people and those with children it might seem dull. The food was varied every day. There were 5 or 6 choices of meat every night with... More

“We had a room at the front of the hotel. We sat out on the balcony for some of the day but kept the windows closed at night, there is a main road outside. As the room had very good air conditioning we didn't find this to be a problem.”
