We were really looking forward to staying here............... But left feeling very disappointed!! As a few people have said this is not a true 5 star hotel! You don't even have a iron and ironing board in your room... Come on even Travelodge have that, no stocked mini bar and no free wifi in your room either... Some of the facilities are lovely and the setting and view (from a seaview room) is fantastic and on the whole it is a nice hotel.... But not 5 star and you expect a lot more for the money you pay.
We stayed here as part of our honeymoon after getting married in Alvor, and as I said we were really looking forward to staying here as it is the only 5 star hotel in Alvor and the setting seemed perfect. I found the rooms nice but not 5 star nice and the whole hotel had a slightly tired feel for a 5 star hotel. The worst thing was the staff are extremely rude and that was the main reason for such a poor rating, I felt like we were an inconvenience and that they only really wanted to be nice to the guests that you could see had plenty of money and the rest of the guests just got in the way! They were also very rude to my wife on the morning of the wedding day as she dared sit on a six seater table in the restaurant, when there was only four of them!!
For the money we paid this hotel was such a let down and would not rush back to stay here!!
