Hotel located next to beach with lovely gardens and large pool area. Book a room with garden/sea view or you will overlook the carpark. All areas of hotel very clean. There is an indoor Spa area with an indoor swimming pool. Sadly the water was freezing making it unpleasant to swim in. Rooms have been refurburished with a very modern theme and are comfortable. There was no information on the hotel or the resort in the room nor was there a hairdryer in the room, the latter could be obtained from reception. There was a small fridge which was useful for keeping drinks cool. The safe deposit box was Euro 2 per day. Clothes storage might be a problem as the 'wardrobe' has more shelving than hanging space. Coathangers are very small making it difficult to hang clothes up.
The hotel runs a courtesy bus in to Portimao and there are service bus stops outside the hotel.
The hotel is a 15 min or so stroll into Alvor where you can find many varied places to eat. DO NOT miss the opportunity to call into the Cactos II bar in the Dunas Appt complex on your way. There you and your family will be made most welcome and you can enjoy a pint of Super Bock from a frozen glass at only Euro1!
Summing up this hotel is in a good location for a relaxing break and is comfortable to stay in however the biggest minus for us were the reception staff who were unhelpful and unfriendly.
