                  7.8

                  Hotel is clean and comfortable, though beds a bit hard which is normal in Portugal, its location is beside the strip or top of hill from beach, cant go wrong!

                • Family with children
                  6.2

                  It was very family friendly most of the staff were pleasant, the pool is clean and safe for the children, fenced off so very safe. A small play area in front of the hotel is ok to keep them entatined

                  The room was not ready or clean when we got there at 8.30 pm. Under the beds had not been cleaned, there was a shoe and sweets left from someone before us, the pull out bed had a protector on it which was covered in marks. However when the maids come around the next day most of this was put right.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Great location, near the Strip (If you really want to go there!) and the old town is a very easy and cheap (4euro) taxi ride. Very close to shops and beach too.

                • Family with children
                  5.0

                  The hotel was in a great location and the lobby and outside of the hotel looked great.

                  When you get inside your room you see that this hotel might have been considered a 4 star back in the 80s or 90 but the rooms are out of date compared to other 4 star hotels. If you don't mind an outdated kitchenette, extremely outdated bathroom that has a ton of cracks,a hard uncomfortable bed, a very old and uncomfortable couch and small 12 inch tv hung on the wall then this is the place for you.

                • Single
                  10.0

                  It certainly lived up to trip advisor accounts could not fault the complex at all I am a bit ocd and could eat and drink in the apartments as they were superbly clean some places I have been had to bleach everywhere but it was spotless with housekeepers coming in every day

                • Couple
                  8.2

                  The size of the huge room and balcony. It was a room for 6 people though and there were only two of us

                  The towels were changed and the beds made but no other tidying was done for the week. The pool was colder than the sea. The food was not nice in the restaurant although the waiting staff were lovely.

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  Excellent value for money, great location especially in Winter months when area is quieter, there are always lots more people around this part of the algarve.

                • Family with children
                  5.4

                  The hotel was clean, the lobby was nice and staff were mainly friendly.

                  Only one satisfactory bar/restaurant that did not open early and closed by 11am and offered very limited entertainment. There was only one bedroom in an apartment for 6, meaning two couples had to share the living room.

                • Couple
                  7.0

                  very central. very clean and the main entrance was 4 star.

                  hotel beds were uncomfortable. the night receptionist did not have great english and caused difficulty. the showers were not 4 star standard.

                • Group of friends
                  8.8

                  Great location, clean rooms. Quiet yet lively if you went to certain places.

                  hotel staff were not very helpful

                • Group of friends
                  6.6

                  Breakfast although it took over 30 for a fry to be made. Then they ran out of mushrooms

                  Staff were so unpleasant and very disrespectful. They had zero manners. Worse staff I have ever come across. Would never stay here again or recommend it for this reason.

                • Couple
                  7.0

                  location was great was so near nice restaurants.

                  the noise level downstairs with singing in the bar if you wanted to get an early night

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Clean conveniently located, spacious and excellent value

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  The room was lovely and spacious, nice design too, nice pool view. Apartments are in a very good location too

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  Very clean and frendly staff. Good location close to bars and resturants

                  Only two complaints we arrived late and we bought water at the hotel bar it was 3euros a bottle that was a bit of a high price to pay when in the shops the same size bottle was 39cents also there was no iron in the appartment
