Fantastic holiday. Great apartment for the price. The staff had considered the fact we had two young children and gave us a ground floor apartment. Very nice staff.
Nice and clean and spacious. Kitchen utensils a little basic. Other than that the apartment was superb. Huge patio area, 2 bathrooms. Microwave, hob, kitchen table, tv, plenty of wardrobes and seats. Very comfortable and clean.
3 pools, table tennis, tennis courts, mini golf, spa, hairdressers, shop, cafe, bar, pools x 3, vending machines. Large lobby with loads of sofas and wifi.
Ideal as we were only a 5 minute taxi ride (5-7 euros) from Portimaio, Praia and Alvor. A 10 minute walk away from a beach.
I would say it's ideal for a family holiday if you like having a bit of variety and exploring little towns.
I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel.
My top tips:
Slide and Splash water park is a must for all the family if you like the slides
All Beef restaurant in Praia for an evening of fine dining.
We were self catering and on day 1 we stocked up in Continente in Praia. A large supermarket. Breakfast and lunch and more sorted for a family of 4 for a week for 90 Euros. I wouldn't recommend all inclusive or half board. (To be fair we didn't see he restaurant as it wasn't open as we were out of season, mid April)
Ideal, I would definitely return. Weather last week 10th April was excellent. 22 degrees. 5/7 days lovely sunshine, pool weather. Other 2 days just a bit cloudy.
