Hotel close to beach and marina
Posted Mar 13, 2017
Stayed here in typical out of season early March.Nice hotel, friendly helpful staff. Great location close to beach and 5 mins walk to marina. Seems heavily used as golfers hotel so quiet during the day. No problem getting a table for breakfast or dinner. Good breakfast choice ( typical buffet style), loads to choose from. However, evening buffet was hit-and-miss, with some odd choices. Better food available at local restaurants, plenty to choose from. Excellent room with sea view and had bonus of small , equipped, kitchenette. Recommend the spa facility for massage. Lovely indoor swimming pool and towel provided but no seating in the changing area ( except the toilet !) so found to be challenging for the older guests. Have to say the worst hairdryer in the world is supplied in the bathroom - no power, no heat, no controls- recommend bring your own. Overall, Hotel is very clean but tired/old fashioned compared to others in the vicinity. Fairly representative of many Algarve 4 star hotels- not comparable to 4 star standards in U.K.
