let me begin by saying my partner and I have just had a wonderful stay in the Algarve we decided on this hotel because it was centrally located and had an all inclusive package.
We arrived on its first day of opening and although we were an hour an half early for check in we were told that we could go and have lunch and were offered a la carte meals which were perfect.
Our room was very spacious and warm facing the pool area.
We explored the old town during the afternoon and returned to find that more guests had arrived I believe that made 12 of us for dinner that evening.
My partner and I anticipated a nice relaxed meal but the mood was dispersed by the most appualing behaviour of a couple (British) who in the middle of dinner tore into the lovely female receptionist like rabid dogs shouting and screaming blue murder a very unpleasant experience for us as guests and the poor girl they were shouting at so aggressively.
I checked that she was alright and told her I would be happy to write a statement of what I had witnessed because it was bullying and completely unwarranted.
This particular couple sat like spoilt children until they left on Christmas eve, much to our relief because they seemed hell bent on persuading any new holiday makers that they had arrived at the worse hotel in the world which, in our experience, it is not in fact far from it.
We avoided discussing the hotel because we found it to be what we wanted a place to rest food that was cooked and available when we wanted with nice staff.
Whist we stayed here we hired a car and visited 10 beach resorts travelled to the mountains to see a castle ruin in Alte and climb mountains in Salir.
We visited the once Moorish capital of the Algarve in Silves and travelled and had a blast in Lagos
On Christmas day we had a bbq on the gorgeous beach Soa Raphael and swam in the sea in short we had a blast and enjoyed our stay and used every opportunity to explore and enjoy the culture and hospitality of Portugal.
In the evenings we enjoyed chatting with other guests and didn't get involved with the gangs that had developed that just wanted to wine and moan very loudly in deed about being cold when not dressed appropriately! or the weather!
Heaven for bid the hotel was not responsible for the weather.
WE HAD AN AMAZING HOLIDAY AND LOVED PORTUGAL we did our home work and went knowing we would be finding our own entertainment and that this hotel is a good base if you use trip advisor it helps make an informed decision
