Stayed here Sep 2010 in one of the out buildings self catering away from main hotel they where very basic but clean and quite comfortable. The kitchen was not fit to really do any cooking in we were lucky we did have a kettle others we spoke to were told they had to buy there own, The toaster was something out of the arc never seen anything like it, The small kitchen was very tired and battered very shabby and run down, We had a two bedroom bungalow one bedroom upstairs and one down, The place had seen better days but wasn't bad for what it cost us. We could use the main hotel which was better nice pool, lovely beach, we never used the restaurant it seemed very formal i was not sure if we could use it think you may have to be guest of hotel or all inclusive?. You could get snacks at bar which was OK, but hotel just seemed to be for the German market entertainment we seen was just for Germans and not very good, all trips out brochures where in German none at all in English even some staff at reception spoke very little English. Nothing much in the area outside of complex three bars, restaurants, shops all not very good found other bars, and such about 30 Min's walk away it was better there but not great. We had to get cab into Albufeira which is not that close at a cost of 12 euros one way and cabs were not up and down the road by hotel we always had to phone one but never waited to long for them to come. We did enjoy ourselves it is quiet there and peaceful if that's what you are looking for. The Hotel is not bad but I would not go back I would get a hotel in Albufeira which is more livelier and not have to spend on cabs up to 4 times a day some days.
