Highly recommended
Hotel is in an ideal location. It is quiet but there are several nice bar/restaurants within 2mins walk. Beautiful pool which is spotless clean. Pool bar is excellent with reasonable prices.The whole property is very clean, inside and out. Gorgeous beach is a few steps away with 3 bar/restaurants on or overlooking beach. About a 20 mins lovely walk along the prom with stunning views, into centre of very lively portimao.

10/10 Exceptional

We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment which was very nice and quiet. Some room service every day was nice but not necessary. It was a bit strange that we were told that we had to buy our own dish soap to wash our dishes. Now we have a large amount left over. Otherwise it was very lovely. Beautiful pool.

10/10 Exceptional

Amazing for a family, immaculate outside pool, great inside pool, everything well taken care of, and friendly staff always eager to help. just 1 step from the beach, with a cat colony outside the gate eager to be pet'd - could not ask for better place. will definitely return. Only thing that needs urgent uplift and improvement is the wi-fi - it is impossible to work from this location with the wi-fi provided.

8/10 Very good

Easy access to the seafront. Lovely walks around. Very comfortable beds. Every single person working there was very polite and helpful. We love swimming and indoor pool was fantastic, apart of opening times 9-7, . And also when we booked, it was including steam and sauna, but you have to pay for it and pre-book it now:-{ so not very happy about that.
