My wife and I stayed 6 days at the end of April 2014 following the advice on trip advisor which was spot on.The location of the hotel is beautiful, with the walkway down to two really sandy beaches, our room was facing the village but was quiet even whith the door open ( air conditioning is not turned on for another two weeks).The shower room was massive with constant hot water, and the bed so big that I kept losing my wife :-).The staff were really friendly, and had a lot of information on bus boat and other trips if asked.A taxi to Alberfuira costs around €9 to Fishermans Beach Area which had some lovely restaurants and bars ( the hotel does run a free bus 3 times a day which we did use ), a meal for two with beer, wine and brandy and coffe to finish costs around $55 which I consider a bargain.My only gripe was the the hot breakfast selection was not hot, tried it once anfd then swapped to all of the other food on offer. Would go back tomorrow :-)
