Just returned from a 1 week half board stay at this hotel. The hotel looks nice with lovely views over the cliffs, perhaps a little too much white in the decor and furniture. The service however leaves a lot to be desired, the restaurant service is very poor, the half board gave us an option of only 2 meals each day with a request to order the day before!!!!! The meals were at best average with an uninspiring selection.
The location unfortunately meant trips to Alvor required a taxi, perhaps we should have researched the hotel better as we expected it to be much closer to Alvor and also expected Alvor described as a fishing village to be just that not a town full of restaurants, bars and gift shops surrounded high rise buildings, it was most definitely a disappointment.
The reception staff were unhelpful when asking how to get out to the local area and obviously expected guests to stay within the resort.
As I suspect is the case with many resorts of this kind it was necessary to go out early and claim sun beds despite signs suggesting this was not allowed.
I guess it depends what you are looking for but for me this resort was a huge disappointment, it has however taught me to be much more thorough researching a resort before booking!
