We booked this place on purpose with a high ranking and good recomendations on the web. Good location, friendly staff, clean, airco and most of all a strickt pool towel policy. All correct.. or almost all. We hate it when we have to set our alarm to run to the pool area to hope for the last sunbed. So to... More

Wonderful resort - clean, well cared for and superb location - just a short (hilly) walk to the town which is quaint, has facilities to cater for all. I have been back many times and love this place! Several pools, spacious apartments and lovely gardens.

This is a favourite holiday destination. We love Carvoeiro and we normally book direct with the owner of the apartment we use. Didn't visit this year but will be back in the future. Highly recommend for families or couples

Family of 5. Loads of room in a 2 bed apartment. Everything you need is in it. Having both a shower room and a bathroom was very handy. 2 spacious rooms with large doubles and plenty of room for the fold out bed which was perfectly comfortable for a little one. Spotless. Towels for pool provided. Pools were fab. Great... More

The place still maintains the cleanliness and great apartments as before. The grounds are also very clean and tidy. The one thing that has changed is the initial impression. Last year it amazing and family oriented , this year however it has become a lot more business like which I feel has taken a bit away from the place. Certainly... More

Hi, We have stayed here 3 times over the last 4 years always staying in the Bunganvillia block. Always a fantastic experience. The pools are great for kids. Yes there is the hill but the whole town is built on a hill with every side sloping down to the centre and the beach (it was a fishing village before tourism).... More

Lovely spacious, clean apartments with everything you need on holiday (even an iron and board). Could not fault the 2 double rooms with very comfy beds which is not always what you get.

Stayed here with family. Very clean, well serviced and well equipped apartments. Less than 5 mins to town centre and beach. Great restaurants close by. Pools all spotless. Nice and quiet and very suitable for families. My 3 kids had no issues with the hills. Can't wait to go back.
