This place is actually a 3 star not a 4 star, however if you want a relaxing, quiet holiday in a superb location then this is the place for you.
We found this place by accident as we were stuck in Portugal due to the Ash Crisis and what a find it was, I will certainly be returning.
The rooms were spacious, clean, and fully equipped with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. We had a small garden area which looked onto the pool area which was perfect for keeping an eye on the kids. The pool area is small but perfectly adequate and the water was warm enough to swim in.
There aren't a huge amount of facilities at this complex, however that is not what we go on holiday for and there is plenty to do in the local area and it's a great place for exploring. There is however a small gym and massage treatment area, a table tennis table, very good tennis court, small reception area, bar and restaurant. The restaurant is a separate company from the hotel and it is quite pricey but is great for a fantastic meal. The staff are friendly and they offered a 20% discount for stranded tourists which was much appreciated.
Carvoeiro is a beautiful resort a short walk from the hotel, which is less purpose built than some of the others. It has plenty of restaurants and shops. The coast here is stunning! Lot's of beautiful coves, cliff walks, caves and beaches and Palm Gardens is itself set right up on top of the cliff with the most amazing views.
I would recommend this hotel if you want to do your own thing, have freedom, like to explore, like beaches and it's great base to do those things. If you want lively entertainment and noise then this is not the place for you.
