  • 8.0.Very good

    A bit disappointing

    I chose this hotel as it was a small luxury hotel but I don’t think it’s on par with the level. The staff was super nice and helpful but the hotel itself is a bit dated, the atmosphere is cold. It’s really removed and even the pool and installations are not as good as you’d think from looking at pictures.

    Much better than overpriced waterfront hotels

    A great mix of new and old buildings with charm. Well-trained staff with high service level and the pool area was spectacular. The beds were a little bit too hard from my comfort but I guess that is individual

    great service

    This was a smaller luxury hotel and we therefore benefited from an attentive staff, who worked very hard to keep us replenished with food and drink. The pool area was excellent and there were always sun beds free. The nearby Roman ruins are work a look and there's a couple of nice restaurants in the town. Also Faro not too far away for a day trip.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Do not bother until they finish renovating

    The place is tired and in need of extensive care and renovation. While we were there, the pool was not functional nor the bar. Early in the morning, loud construction noise began at 9:00 AM. We could not walk through the gardens given work in progress there. The best compliment is the breakfast buffet which was very special along with the kind and attentive personnel there.

    The website didnt state that the pool and sauna are out of commission and it was one of the principal reasons for booking. However the price was good but its low season. The hotel search engine will tell you it is in Faro but is a long ways out. Pretty scenery and unique building and good breakfast and low season rate!
