We stayed for a week and we were surprised after some of the reviews we read . The room was clean and had everything you could want . The staff in reception were helpful . The only downside was the miserable couple who ran the bar / restaurant. It was a very quiet area and a nice twenty min walk...

The location is quite good, very close to the Vilamoura Marina (15 minutes walking, 5 m driving). However I felt very disappointed with the apartment. It is composed by a living room with bed sofa (sleep 2), a small kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom with two twin beds. The room has some cracks on the wall, needing some repaint....

The wi-fi only worked in reception and it was very poor. We did not have air-conditioning. We did not have a extractor fan in the bathroom and there was some plumbing problems as...

Stayed here for a week, beds were comfy, room spacious with seperate kitchen and bathroom. Decent shower! With a bath, kitchen had most utensils needed for self catering. It was clean,although as the week went on we found the room to be damp.

This was a very cheap break so I was unsure what to expect. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. we arrived at 10am and even though check in wasn't until 2pm our room was ready and we were allowed to check in. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. I will be visiting again.

We read the mixed reviews and found the good reviews were the accurate ones.We booked here for 8 nights at the beginning of October for a final break before winter sets in in the UK. We never usually go self catering so we didn't know what to expect. The price was very cheap, just over £100 for the room. The...

Hotel apartments are quite basic but do the job, located around 15-20 minutes away from the marina. Bar/Restaurant is attached and does very decent food and drink at a reasonable price. Would recommend for those looking to to get the most from there money but don't need fancy rooms
