  • 4.0.Fair

    Very nice hotel with horrible room!

    Resort and common areas excellent as well as location but room was filthy which is quite concerning with the current covid situation. Also outdated and with broken woodwork in the outside terrace which was a danger to our kids. Requested to move rooms, didn’t get it. Pool and pool bar within our apartment block was closed with no pre-advice given. No Hotels.com gold vip member benefits offered either. Hotel does not have five restaurants as advertised either. Definitely NOT a five star property!

    Relaxing stay

    Stayed before many times. Beautiful location with a wonderful beach to stroll along. Internal décor is very tasteful and lots of open spaces. I would appreciate as a guest to have the bus service to and from the Old town available on weekend days also. The hotel is in quite a remote location and on arrival on Friday we had the service of the courtesy bus to and from the town. This service sadly stops at the weekend. I think it would encourage guests to return if the bus was available maybe just a couple of times each weekend day please

  • 8.0.Very good

    Cold pools but nice beach

    Staff friendly and installations great. The only bad thing is only the kids pool on the main building was a little warm only one day. All the pools at the resort were cold and not heated, so if the weather is not hot the water is cold. Another thing is on arrival they inform to us somebody has rented the complete resort so we needed to left the premises on our check put day by 12. For us wasn't a problem we were leaving anyway to Lisbon that day but not sure about other guests at the complex who were expecting to enjoy the premises after check out. Beach was good though and the views amazing
