Overall this is a reasonable hotel, for the money. The rooms are clean and spacious and they are serviced every day with towels.
The hotel is very poorly situated and the taxi fare to Vilamoura and Albufeira is expensive.
There are nowhere near enough sun loungers around the pool and this is a real problem in the peak season. To be fair to the hotel, this is a problem mainly compounded by the behaviour of the guests (ie placing towels on loungers all day when they are absent)
The reception desk can be unhelpful - at one point we asked them to call a taxi for us. They tried for a few rings and gave up, advising us to find a taxi rank. We could not find one!
I would try somewhere nearer the action and pay a bit more for a better hotel experience elsewhere.
