Comfortable, quiet hotel
Posted Oct 28, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay. Service in the restaurant was excellent with a wide choice of food at the buffet breakfast, although fried eggs & pancakes are freshly cooked by the staff. Our (river view) room was fine with access to a small patio with a table/chairs. Beware the mosquitoes though if you are susceptible to bites and, as is often the case in Europe, our room did not have a double bed (twin beds). The bathroom was very clean and everything worked fine as did the air conditioning unit. We had a small issue with the TV which was fixed right away. The bottled water in the fridge is also chargeable. All the staff were friendly & helpful and the 24/7 reception was appreciated in our case as we arrived after midnight. It's about 3 km to Tavira so you need comfortable footwear, a car, a taxi or the hotel shuttle (which doesn't run on Mon & Tues or in the evenings) to get into town for the restaurants and a large shopping centre. The N125 is close as well for travel around the Algarve (the A22 is a toll road and very quiet!). Beware the extra costs when picking up the hire car as well especially if you choose to reduce the insurance excess.
