          • Family with children
            10.0

            Great location, confortable and clean rooms. Nice swimming pools, and good breakfast.

            the beach restaurant could be better (more choices), but it is not bad.

          • Older travelers
            4.2

            Nice beach

            This was like a 1970's time-warp without any renovations. The room was dreadful - on the fifth floor and the bathroom drains stunk. When we arrived the floor had been freshly mopped with bleach but as that smell receded the smell from the drains made you retch. The sunbeds were old and tatty, the pool small and the food average. We only stayed for one night at short notice and the €150 rate was outrageous.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The location is excellent. Breakfast was well organized with a wide range of food.

            We could have done with an other easy chair in the room.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The staff were very helpful. The room was well appointed and the bed and pillows were great. We are disinclined to "hotel entertainment" but we went to listen to the Live Music on Friday evening and it was really a pleasure to listen to a talented and personable player.

            The bathroom was well appointed and cleverly designed but heavyweights should be warned! ... there was little wriggle room.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            we last stayed at this hotel 20 years ago and although it had an old fashioned charm it is badly in need of updating,but we enjoyed the experience and would return.

          • Older travelers
            9.4

            out off ten seven

            setting our own table for dinner

          • Older travelers
            9.0

            Good location, food good, staff very friendly and helpful.

            Stairs down to dining room and also to the pool. Reception did say that staff elevator could be used for access to the dining room.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Location, proximity to beach and pool facilities.

            Small room. Facilities and furniture are quite old and need replacement. Generally, the indoor areas of the hotel need significant upgrading.

          • Older travelers
            8.4

            breakfast good. plenty of fresh fruit and bread for both meals. beds very clean and comfortable. tv very good reception.

            dinner was boring and most vegetables seemed either frozen or canned and swimming in water.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Excellent beach location, great for families with young children, not crowded because is one small hotel, good breakfast for one 3 star hotel, free private parking (imperial during August), very well located in the best region of Algarve, fair snack prices in the pool for fast lunch and very nice staff (except maintenance). One of the best hotels, if you are looking for holidays in the beach with fair price.

            Maintenance staff is the worst I got in a very large experience in hotels all over the world. Is one old hotel, but some situations, we cannot accept. Air Conditioning was not working with 39º outside and was the first time someone tried to justify that, telling me that I don’t know how to use it. Maintenance people are not polite and tried to change remote control program in front of me to justify the problem. After I explain them that customers are not ignorant, they changed almost everything (Inside & outside the room) and started to work. Without this episode, would be one great hotel. I believe they can change these kind of employees and get the grade they deserve. Other employees are not the same, and are doing a great job.
