My wife and I visited this hotel for four nights on late April 2009. We selected it following the many positive reviews we found on TripAdvisor and other web sites. Having visited we can only say that the other reviews were spot on. This hotel is an absolute gem. Being adults only one expected it to be fairly peaceful but it was tranquility beyond anything we have ever experienced before in many visits to the Algarve. Everything about this hotel ticks the right boxes if you are looking for quality, cleanliness, superb staff, peaceful location and serious attention to detail. If this is what you are seeking, then book now and you wont be disappointed.
Only one small factor was a little annoying:- Whilst the "boutique" style decor is simply wonderful, the shower screen in the bathroom is sadly too small. Unless you stay perfectly still in the shower it is impossible not to create puddles on the bathroom floor. However, this will in no way stop us from returning and we are already planning our next visit.
FIVE out of FIVE for EVERYTHING!
