Our third visit in two years! has to tell you something!
Staff are very friendly and jolly people which translates into good service and that nothing is too much trouble.
The pool area is a place for chilling out!! please get this people who want entertainment it don't happen at this hotel, read and understand the reviews, don't book with children it has nothing for them, although it's not adult only it is geared up for a relaxing time for couples to chill.
Lovely beach 100m away with three good beach cafe/restaurants, but a walk up to the first roundabout turn right down the side of Gale Mar apts signed Lorenco beach bottom left corner of car park there is a track down to the most lovely small beach bar/cafe over looking the little cove, lovely lunchtimes spent there.
I personally think the hotel restaurant is missing why we go to the Algarve it needs to serve algarve dishes not just the fine dinning.
So, we go to Sao Domingos a 5 euro taxi away not far at all but you wouldn't want to walk when in your muffty!
A family run restaurant great food absolutely immaculate clean, staff very friendly and will look after you if you have any food intollerences as my wife has.
So to sum up, peacefull hotel in a nice area not a resort, clean, good friendly service a place to RELAX!
