Accommodation was a town house (number 12) overlooking the pool. Spacious downstairs accommodation, with large balcony. Bedrooms are adequate but not a lot of space for luggage and beds were a tad on the hard side. Bathrooms are clean, but would benefit from some modernisation. Pool area is lovely, very clean with pool attendant cleaning pool on a regular basis, there were always loungers available but would benefit from more parasols. We used pool bar for drinks and lunch only and was fine although would have benefitted from more lunch menu options eg. Toasties, baguettes. Resort is 40 minute walk to Albuferia which is a pleasant walk down the hill and past the marina. If you wish to take a taxi into Albuferia this costs around 7 Euros (beware taxi drivers drive very fast and tailgate the car in front!). Sao Rafael Beach is a 10 minute walk downhill from the resort. This is one of the nicest beaches I have ever visited, it is very clean with and the water is great for paddling and swimming alike, it is shallow for quite a way out. Sunbeds and parasols are for hire at 12 Euros for 2 sunbeds. Beach Bar/restaurant served meals as well as snacks. We had salads, burgers and hot dogs which were very good but the service at lunchtime was a bit slow.
Overall a great little resort!
