“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Lovely hotel but NOT adults only. There were a number of children at the hotel including babies so jet2, it is not an adult only hotel. Apart from that we had a great time. The hotel was lovely and clean and staff were friendly too. Food was nice but not much to choose form on a night.

Dear Rlc1989,
Thanks very much for your review. We do not accept room reservation for families, what happens is that the Portuguese law doesn't allow us to block entrance to children to the public areas of the hotel. It is true that some clients from the appartments nearby come to have breakfast in our restaurant and there's nothing we can do, unfortunatlly. We are pleased you've enjoyed anyway. Kind regards, Joao Costa-GM Details Hotels

We spent a week in this hotel 23/30 April.
Overall very good hotel, 5 minute walk to the strip, 5 minute walk to the beach and very close to the bus stop. Very nice and helpful staff ! Reception staff is great They helped us book different tours and activities. Pool area is nice enough space you don't have to reserve a sunbed.

We had some issues however
Wifi is 10 euro for 7 days, however to slow for words, my 3g connection is faster !
Pillows far to soft, hard to get a nice sleep position.
Breakfast to basic for a four star. Don't book breakfast and eat out, full Irish or English starts at 4 euros.
Airco in the room wasn't really airco, didn't work properly.

Overall good hotel !

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with sea view

If you want to chill out by day but like a lively variety of bars and restaurants by night, this is the perfect choice. A short walk to the strip and 10 minutes by bus to the old town.
The staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the upgrade to a deluxe room was well worth the 20 euro's per night. Even when we realised we hadn't printed boarding cards for our return flight, Ricardo was only too happy to help.
The pool area is really peaceful and a man appears from no-where with extra sunbeds and umbrella's if needed (to a point). Our only negative would be the very soft pillows but would definitely stay there again.
Nespresso machines in the room but 1.50 Euro's each - take your own capsules if you have a machine at home like we do and wished we had known.

Room Tip: Upgrade for 20 Euro's a night for the king sized bed, pool and sea view.

We stayed as a middle aged couple, we paid extra to get a sea and pool view €20 extra per night it was well worth it the view's are amazing. The rooms are large enough with very hard beds.Breakfast was a bit basic for a 4 star. Great location for bars and restaurants.
