Lovely quality hotel. Very peaceful area. The food on half board was good and well presented but limited choice for picky eaters. The staff will try and accommodate you if you are really finding choices difficult. The restaurant staff are well trained. Occasionally service can be a little slow. Staff are very polite and reserved in nature but very friendly when you engage them in conversation. The rooms could do with a refresh and you need to take extra hangers with you as there are virtually no drawers for clothes. Close to the beach at the end of the road. The supermarket behind the hotel has a really good cafe for a reasonably priced lunch. The area is fairly pricey for eating out. Is a classy 4 star and would return again. Maybe for a long weekend as only 2 hrs on the plane.

We have stayed here many times and on each occasion we have received the best service from all the helpful and friendly hotel staff. Also the location is wonderful, so near to the beach but quiet and tranquil. Can't wait for the next visit.

Second visit to hotel. As adults only it is very relaxing and peaceful. All staff so helpful, rooms spotless. Food great with endless breakfast buffets and choice of two dishes for each course in evening on half board. Situated in quiet street with amazing long, sandy beach metres away. Beach bars and restaurants were still open late October. Went for walks most days along beach to nature reserve and to Armacao de Pera for coffee. Went to Albufeira by taxi for a visit.

Relaxing and peaceful - beach 200 yards away - Can't complain about anything - all 5 star - Even when a freak storm almost led to flooding, the staff were wonderful and a crisis was avoided with smiles all round :0)
