Stayed for 6 nights in this beach hotel for adults only. The staff excelled the entire week, being extremely serviceminded and friendly.
There was a spectacular rooftop bar and a lounge with live music twice during the week. However, hardly anyone was around. Our two sons, both in their twenties, left to party elsewhere.
What this hotel needs to lift itself from being a mere hotel with all the right facilities, but no action, is some kind of an event manager. The pool area is nice and SO quiet - the hotel is good for reading books and sleeping, but not for having fun.
The internet did not work all week - but it seemed as if the hotel was working on it as we left.
The view was fantastic, the rooms big and meticulously clean, the bathroom spacious and comfortable. Aircondition worked well - with some noise.
Recommend it warmly to honeymooners and people who like peace and quiet.
Location: 3 minute walk to beautiful beaches, however by no means for elderly or disabled persons (lots of stairs to climb the cliffs). About 5 minutes walk from The Strip (many youngsters), and a 7 Euro taxiride to the center of Albufeira with restaurants and clubs for adults.
The area surrounding the hotel: Cheap, touristic.
