Lovely hotel in a perfect position

Posted Mar 16, 2017
Just returned from a week's stay at this lovely hotel. Very comfortable, lovely outdoor pool with terrace and sun beds. Gym and indoor pool also available to guests. Breakfast was excellent apart from the hot dishes were mostly luke warm. Staff friendly and helpful. Bed comfortable, room cleaned every day with fresh towels. A kettle is available if you ask at the reception. Would stay here again.

Nice Hotel close to the local village

Posted Feb 28, 2017
Pros: quietness, friendliness of staff, food quality, room comfort and closeness to amenities
Cons: can not think of anything
Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff who speak good English. room really clean, comfortable bed, powerful shower, had a safe. the pool area was clean with plenty of sunbed chairs. the breakfast food selection was of top quality, nice ambiance in the dining area. the bar was small but cosy - some good entertainment. you can hire a bike from the hotel and the staff have information regarding the surrounding area and what to do and where to go. outside the hotel is the marina, you can watch the fishermen come to shore in the morning with their catch. Good fish market just a 10 min stroll away and a fruit market next door. loads of restaurants selling fresh fish and selling reasonably priced wines.

Lovely hotel opposite nature reserve.

Posted Jan 27, 2017
Pros: Staff, cleanliness and location.
Cons: Happy hour only covered limited selected drinks on the menu - perhaps could have an extended selection.
Location: Plenty to do - tours of nature reserve. Great fresh fish restaurants in walking distance. Weekly market. Easy access to Faro - 10 minutes by train.
Staff were exceptional. We upgraded our room from City view to sea view which was well worth the extra as the city view rooms are all north facing and the view not impressive. Would have liked one easy chair in the room rather than the two work type chairs we had. Balcony was spacious and nicely furnished.

Spacious modern hotel overlooking the sea

Posted Jan 5, 2017
Pros: Comfortable and quiet and good views over the sea.
Cons: Jacuzzi temperature!
Location: Very open, short walk to several good restaurants and market along the promenade.
Helpful and pleasant staff. Spa good, but jacuzzi should be warmer especially at this time of the year.

Hotel with sea view

Posted Dec 30, 2016
Nice hotel opposite to the beach with good facilities close by with the old town just around the corner. Friendly, helpful staff! Town is bit boring otherwise with some nice restaurants around the corner!
