We booked a week's stay here and on checking in found the reception staff very rude, the girl looked at me as if to say "For God's sake" when I asked her the way to our room !! The room itself was clean, very spacious but basic. Furniture and decor rather dated. But the worse was to come it was...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nites. We booked it very last minute and were very scared it would end up being a dive especially because we found the rate so reasonable during peak season in the Algarve. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. We highly recommend it. The only negative comment was...

We had a fantastic time at these apartmenets and will definitely be going back. The staff were very friendly, so much so that they invited us to 2 of their private bbq's. The rooms are very spacious and clean, perfect for families and the bathroom had a bath as well as a bath shower. The location is idllylic, there are...

I took my 16 year old daughter and four of her friends here on a post GCSE trip and we all had a great time. The apartments were spacious and clean; the staff were very helpful and tolerant of us moving furniture between our two apartments. The pool was small (I suspect too small if the apartments had been full)...

After reading the other reviews about these apartments I can only assume that since the tour operators have pulled them from their brochures they have gone down hill.......rapidly. The whole place has a feeling of a business barely clinging on. The building seems tired and run down, and the bar that was advertised is no longer open, replaced by a...

Just returned from a weeks holiday, with husband and 2 sons (11 and 15). Sad to leave! Admittedly apartments were basic but on the plus side they were spacious and very clean. Usually stay at Praia Da Rocha, but over the years found too noisy for family holiday. So the location of these apartments are ideal. The reception and bar...

We went as a family of 5 - kids aged 14,13 and 9. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The appartments were HUGE and we had an unoverlooked shady balcony. The food from the bar was delicious and good value and we had takeaways a couple of times. The free airconditioning was fantastic as the temperature was over 30'oC...

we have just returned from Terracos do vau and had the most marvellous time ever! Thomson rep/children's reps were superb and so approachable and caring. The apartments were immaculate and well looked after although with only basic furnishings, admittedly. The atmosphere created by the helpful staff and the relaxed surroundings made this a really special holiday for my family. The...

We stayed here for 1 week. Thought, after reading other reviews, that we`d booked a great holiday. How wrong could i have been. The 1st apartment was awful. It took 45mins to boil a cup of coffee. The TV wouldnt work & altogether shabby. Drawer fronts were hanging off & the sofa bed was uncomfortable even for my son to...
