Stayed at the hotel in July , it was beautiful and modern. Rooms were very clean and staff were very helpful. There is a boat to other local islands were you can enjoy the beach. However if you plan on being out and about late night, be close to the vibrant parts of the island I would suggest vilamoura or...

I was one of very few englishmen staying here Nov 5th to Nov 12th. The whole hotel had been swamped with Irish; Ryanair have struck a deal with the hotel supposedly, whereby if the masses are sent over, each individual can have a week's b&b for €300....now that's luck! Overall, the hotel is warm, slick & the staff super-attentive. My...

I would not describe this hotel as a 5 star. It is nice, and very clean but not the standard of 5 star that I have stayed in before. We waited a while to check in as there was only 1 receptionist. Room was not ready so we left for a few hours and when we got back our bags...

We booked an apartment at the hotel through Booking.com. The apartment was big and spacious and had all the facilities one would expect with the exception of a washing machine (the idea being that we'd use the hotel's laundry service). Each block of apartments had its own rooftop pool which in October meant we had it to ourselves. We went...
