This is a small rural hotel, with around 20 rooms, nice architecture and tasteful decoration, friendly and warm service, in a quiet spot in Algarve’s splendid countryside (10 minutes away from Faro or Olhao). A car is strongly advised. The route can look complicated at the beginning, but there are lots of signs around the villages of Estoi and Pechao.
Lots of things to do / see very close, from the Roman ruins of Milreu, to boat trips in Ria Formosa, bird watching or just sunbathing around the swimming pool.
Relaxed, quiet atmosphere. The grounds/gardens are well maintained and the restaurant is excellent and very reasonable priced. The pool is nice and very clean, and there are also some golf grounds to practice.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable and modern. The rooms facing South can get really warm in the afternoon, but all have a/c. Beds mattresses rather firm, which for me is an advantage.
Breakfast was good, but not 5* (the only thing I will rate 4*). Limited room mini-bar, but then I have not asked for more.
