No different words to use I'm afraid. Excellent all round hotel. Great breakfasts, nice pool, clean & spacious rooms blah blah blah. I have graded it as excellent for the type of hotel it is, but of course it is not competing with the Rui's etc. Book with confidence.
A couple of suggestions to the hotel which in now way detract from the all round quality;
Disappointed no reception open on our (and others) arrival. Rep had to ring quite a few times to get a maid, who didn't speak a word of English, to open the door. If I'm gonna spend best part of £1000, I thought it would be polite for our host to be there to greet us.
Great Plasma tv with satellite, but can we not have an English radio station? Nice to have the radio on when you're getting ready to go out.
If the management read these reviews, would be nice if they replied to our comments.
A previous review said the lift wasn't working. It still isn't!! Why?
Albufeira on the other hand, is NOT the quaint, charming little town the holiday companies would lead you to believe. See my post on Albufeira forum.
