What a lovely hotel in quiet surroundings. It is family owned and that was evident from the care to the building and friendliness of the staff. The reception area and indoor pool were particularly attractive as was the restaurant. We tended to eat in the domed circular area in the evening as it it had low level lighting well spaced tables and made you feel as though you had gone out to a good reastaurant. For breakfast we ate in the section with lots of windows at the far end although this was more light eating in rows of a canteen (still nice though). Food was good although I enjoyed breakfast more than evening meal. Salad choice was a bit limited for me and veggies were often cold/bit soggy and were frozen not fresh. Desserts not really worth the calories if you know what I mean! Oranges to squeeze yourself and fantastic porridge a great hit at breakfast.
Room was good but towels small and toiletries basic. Could get your pool towel from reception and use that in room as you can change as often as you like. Charge for safe in rooms apart from suites which I think is a shame.
A bit chilly in evening in our room and requested a heater but none available.
We don't like hotel entertainment and were glad that poolside events were at a minimum.
We used Sheraton Hotel lift to and from beach (was allowed) which was handy.
Relaxing break ... we walked to Vilamoura along beach and to Albuferia along road both enjoyable despite rain. Caught bus from both to return to hotel ... check out bus stops as quite tricky to find in Albufeira ... we got a map from tourist info.
On the whole a great place . Thanks and well done to the staff for making us feel so at home.
