Reviewed 1 October 2013

Wonderful location with lovely gardens and perfect maintenance. Our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers age 16 and 18) spend some very pleasant days. Due to all the positive ratings in 'tripadvisor' we were prepared to find a 'very nice hotel' in 'very nice surroundings'. But we found more than this:
Friendly, multilingual and very helpful staff. Spacious studio, big terrace overlooking the ocean with breath-taking view of the amazing surroundings of the Algar Seco coast line. There was one very little thing annoying the perfect scene: the lighted street lamp of the road to the Algar Seco prevented us to fully enjoy the beautiful night sky..............
No, it's not a bargain but you get an excellent value for your money and I will come back for sure when visiting the Algarve next time.

Dear Guests,
What a wonderful review, thank you very much. We are very glad that your stay in Algar Seco Parque exceeded your expectations. I completely agree with you on the street lights - the beautiful night sky would be so much more visible without them. However, since they are part of the public street lighting, we can only hope that one day they will be replaced by lights that are not quite so tall!
Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we look forward to your next visit.

I have been coming here for over 20 years now and it has always been a very relaxing holiday. The place is kept very well, the staff is very friendly, everything is very clean. The bistro by the pool is definitely underestimated by the public.
If only the now available wifi had a little more steady throughput!

Just got back from Algar Seco Parque. My family and I had such a lovely two weeks. Apartment was spotless and cleaned 5 days out of 7. The gardens are beautiful and kept immaculate. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. The view from our apartment was amazing as was the view from the pool. Bistro was good. The situation of the complex is a five minute walk to town centre with lots of great places to eat. Town was very busy in high season but once you got back to the complex it was really quiet. Will we go back? You bet, roll on next year! Cannot recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: Any apartment you get will have the most amazing view.

Just returned from our second holiday in Algar Seco Parque.
It has a wonderful cliff top location, great selection of villas, bungalows and apartments all equipped to an extremely high standard, very well maintained and scrupulously clean.
All the staff are very friendly special mention to Catriona and Editte in Reception for all their assistance.
The Poolside Bistro Bar is brilliant with great food cooked to a very high standard and very efficient and friendly service.
Swimming pools are great for all ages including our four year old grandson and I had the pool to my self every morning for my pre breakfast swim.
We plan to return soon.

The BistroBar at Algar Seco Parque is excellent for a lunch with friends. Their tiger prawns are enormous - 2 prawns are large enough for one meal! Good salads and crisp white wine. Enjoy beautiful uninterrupted sea views while you are dining beside the pool in the sun. Friendly service.

The Algar Seco Parque is a beautiful hotel/restaurant overlooking the water.The dining area is overlooking the pool. It is beautifully decorated and the maintenance standards of the complex are high. We a decent bottle of wine, three of the varying salads on offer and a tagliatelli. The salad I had may well be the nicest I've ever eaten and there was loads of it.
