“Simply fabulous!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Kids loved it, we loved it. Food amazing, staff superb. Surroundings faultless, coastal views stunning. Pools were not crowded at anytime due to limited number of guests. The BBQ evenings with the local bands where great for the whole family.

It doesn't get any better. The grounds are absolutely beautiful- so well kept. The pool was perfect. The service can't be beat. We never left the resort! The restaurants had fantastic food, never a bad meal. Th resort is top notch all the way- we have lived in Europe for 2 years now so we enjoy trying new luxury hotels and resorts- but we all agreed - we will be back next summer. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend! We stayed 7 nights and would have liked another 7.

Room Tip: We loved staying in the main building. We were upgraded to one of the penthouse suites- room 401. I...

Great hotel, extremely friendly staff, best breakfast ever in heavenly setting + The Ocean restaurant as European culinary top.
But... not really cheap...
We've been here twice, next year we most certainly return.

The place is truly magnificent, from the grounds, many pools, the golf course, the spa, many outstanding restaurants, the great beach, and of course the view. The service is wonderful, and the cleanliness and quality are kept up at the highest level. The only issue is simply the price of everything, two to three times what one would see outside of the facility. The place is also highly supportive of family activities while maintaining a few options for only adults. A highly pleasant and well run place if money is no object.

Our first trip to the Algarve. We stayed for 4 nights end August, a bank holiday weekend for the UK. We decided to go last minute, so it was more expensive than I would usually book for a standard hotel room. We stayed in the main building and had a good size room with a small balcony leading out to the garden. The resort was full and it was high season, and in general it didn't feel too crowded except at the breakfast buffet and trying to get a deck chair next to the swimming pools. The resort is very large with beautiful gardens and lawns, with different villas, restaurants, pool areas, ponds (including ducks and swans) and sporting facilities. If you walk around the resort you'll also find a few relaxing areas on the grass away from the pool areas with deck chairs/sun beds, umbrellas and bungalows. Not sure if the bungalows needed to be booked in advance like the ones next to the pool. The food was excellent, with a good choice of restaurants, however expect to pay resort prices! The staff on the front desk and concierge were excellent, however at meal times the staff seemed over stretched. The main issue was poor table service at dinner - on the Friday night BBQ buffet we had to ask twice for our bottle of wine, which took about 20 minutes to arrive. Another night at the pizza restaurant, we were ready to order and motioned several times to the staff who were rushing. After waving a few times, it took almost 30 minutes before the waiter came to take our meal order. At breakfast we had to ask several times for coffee. The restaurant staff were obviously busy and trying hard, its just they were understaffed - understandable, yes, but 5 star...no

Pros - setting and surroundings, walk to private beach, choice of fresh fruit and variety at buffet breakfast, spa

Cons - poor service at restaurants, restaurant prices

Great open spaces well manicured
Amazing gardens and facilities
But
Food was consistanly average and its a tad overpriced.
It's cost is getting Into the one and only type bracket.

It's ok but there is better.
