    Lovely views

    Clean but hotel is dated, needs some refurbishment. Staff were pleasant. Breakfast was basic. Plenty of sunloungers by the pool Excellent location to walk into centre

    5/5 Excellent

    We drove to the Algarve. Parking spaces are tight, but we always found a place to park the car. Baia Cristal proximity to the beaches is fantastic. Front desk reception extremely helpful. We walked to the Praia de Vale Centeanes every day. Kayak trip to Benagil Algar and dinner on the beach were a highlight.

    Repeat guests

    Love this place, stayed here 6 years on the trot. The staff are fantastic, the location is perfect, however.... ...... The food is ordinary and the bedrooms are tired. When we started coming the cost was about £100 a night. That cost has nearly doubled. Some of that is beyond the hotel's control (exchange rates) but not all and, generally, it's not such good value for money anymore. We love it but I've left the last few times thinking that I could do better for the money

    Lovely stay and location.

    Location is optimal for wandering. Beautifully situated on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic and a short stroll into Carvoeiro. Property was well-maintained. Food was plentiful with good quality/taste overall. Reception and Manager Gil were very professional and helpful with dinner reservations, taxis, etc. Biggest complaint was with the housekeeping as our room was not well kept at all. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
