Hotel looks great from the outside, sadly hasn't had much thought go into what makes it actually great on the inside.
Pool area looks awesome but there is a constant gale blowing through as the hotel is located high up on a hill, so renders the whole area useless. We spent all of our days on prainha beach which is absolutely superb - about 30 mins walk from the hotel - or 4 euro cab journey,
Inside the all inclusive food was OK, but not much choice for evening - we only at there twice for a long weekend, likewise for entertainment - not much going on.
Alvor town is definitely the place to go for dining out - brilliant choice and great setting heading towards the harbour.
Its about 15 minute walk down the hill from the hotel - we walked down every night and got a cab back up the hill.
Rooms are OK - but the beds are like slates of concrete, and there isn't a full divide between the bedroom and the TV room with sofa bed, it stops near the ceiling - so you can hear all the snoring (or anything else!) going on in the other section of the room if you have other people or children sleeping on the sofa bed.
Internet didn't work in the room and reception not really wanting to help.There was also an awful smell coming from our sink as well, not really sure what it was, kept blaming our teenage boy for farting but found out it was the sink.
