“Lovely location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

The hotel strong points is its location on the beach. You can walk for miles in each direction and enjoy climbing through the rocks and playing in the rock pools.

There are several beach type bar/restaurants in both directions which are great for lunch and a coffee.

The rooms are fairly basic. The hotel is fairly expensive so I am surprised the rooms aren't a bit nicer but as I said they are ok and above all they were clean.

I would stay again if I was visiting the Algarve.

This hotel is an old world type of establishment which works really well with the surrounding gardens and amazing terrace restaurant for breakfast - the views are something else. The bar is lovely and gentile in the evening and although a bit more expensive than some in the town, it is worth dropping in for a night cap. The big plus is its location. A lift from the pool area straight onto a lovely beach with free beds and umbrellas. The ambiance around the hotel is low key and peaceful - would definitely go back again.

Stayed for a week in may 2012, the room was very comfy with a great sea view, and its one of the only hotel's Ive been in were there are more than one English channels on the TV. The hotel was really good, friendly staff, great breakfast, nice pool, garden area, also the beach was spectacular.
We had a car, but if we hadn't I think we would of spent a few quid on taxis as it was a good stride into Alvor.
The only down side for me were the prices for drinks in the hotel.
All in all a good holiday and I would go again.
