4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very pleasantly surprised
Although we had booked the hotel shuttle it didn't turn up so it wasn't a good start. Since found that an uber would have been a lot cheaper anyway. When we arrived we were very surprised, pleasantly at the first impression. Reception staff was nice enough but not very present. Our room was very clean and roomy. With modern facilities. The TV however had no English channels and was an old crt with only scart connections so we couldnt hook anything up to it. There is no wifi unless your close to reception, so be prepared. Our room had steps straight down to the pool which was lovely. The fountain came on every night from 8pm for 2 hrs and can be nosey if your relaxing on the patio, which has table and chairs, or indoors. There is a bar, which serves drinks and food poolside a stride away from your apartment. We ate in the restaurant once, the food was OK but I couldn't eat there every night, so take that into consideration if all inclusive. There is a shuttle that takes you to Albufeira every hr from 10am with occasion breaks right up to 11pm which is a definite bonus as the hotel is quite remote. It does 2 stops so you can shop and be done by the time it returns from the beach. That service alone makes the whole experience value for money, as well as making it easy of you want to eat out. All other trips we took an uber which was never more than 5 euros for us.

Ok but not going there again
Staff were nice but the hotel didn't look like a 4 star. Quite old facilities, lots of broken and used marks, bad beds and pillows, few ant problems.

Attractive hotel
A nice modern hotel with lovely apartments each one with a good size balcony overlooking the pool. Overall the room was really nice though a few small issues. A mouldy bath enclosure, leaky a/c, inadequate drinking glasses and a shower would have been nice-not good for water conservation! There's a shower head but no wall attachment! The restaurant was fine but glad we were not all inclusive as would have got very bored eating there all the time. The entertainment does not cater for English. We did feel a bit excluded as the entertainment staff totally ignored us all week! One warning do not buy drinks in the reception bar. I got stung 10 Euro for a small glass of very cheap and nasty, rough red wine! The hotel is isolated but the shuttle bus is handy although unreliable. If you get stuck a taxi from town is about 8 Euro. No shuttle bus at weekends though or evenings. Very surprised though when we checked out the receptionist did not even bother with a thank you, good bye or have a safe journey!!! A fairly basic skill requirement?!

Pool holiday
I had read it was away from facilities, but there was a mini mart shop. The shop stock was worse than poor, one frozen pizza and a couple bags dried pasta. No cafés restaurants or bars near, no where to go for a wee walk. We really struggled self catering.The shuttle bus from hotel was good but stoped at 5pm and not on at weekends, we ended up spending a fortune on taxis.there was a small spar at bus stop in town, big supermarkets out on motorways. We really stuggled self catering. The actual hotel was fab and the rooms really big , big balconies and excellent pool. Lovely staff, the taxi drivers were superb. No descent entertainment, very shut off at night.
