Great hotel to really chill. Located in a lovely residential area. The Marina and Albufeira is walkable. Huge guest rooms, really clean and modern. Evening entertainment is very low key as previous reviewers have mentioned. Pool area exceptionally quiet during the day. Did not have any problem getting sunbeds. Was disappointed with the Spa. Had booked spa circuit and found a few things not working and was made to wear swimming hat at a cost of 5 Euros even in the jacuzzi !! There was no water dispensers in the spa area which I found surprising as there was a sauna and steam room to use which usually recommend to keep yourself hydrated. The brochure describes that there is an al la carte beach restaurant, although the restaurant has nothing to do with the hotel and I am at a loss to know why this is described as being part of the hotel. Overall we had a great holiday. The staff are very friendly and efficient and I can honestly say that we only encounted one person in the buffet restaurant who was a bit grumpy on a Sunday morning!!
