A very basic hotel. We had a double room apartment which was very spacious if a little dated but hey this is not a 5 star boutique hotel. And who wants to stay indoors in the Algarve anyway. Reception staff were absolutely brilliant and couldn't fault them. The hotel is central and just down from the Strip and 2 mins walk from Praia de Oura beach so expect noise during the day and at night from the neighbouring Hotels and apartment blocks as tourists and locals make their way back. Overall we would stay there again as the price for our 8 night stay was excellent.

Please don't stay there!! It's not a 3 star.

Please!! Please avoid these Apartments!! Espically if you are going with children!! They are very very dated,unsafe. I was allocated a very basic studio on arrival,it had a Bedsettee,small kitchen,with a few pots and pans,no kettle,toaster nothing!! A small portable tv!! I immediately went to complain!! Was moved straight away,a much bigger,very dated apartment,with a big balcony.I accepted it but honestly if I could have my choice I would just have walked out and went elsewhere. The hallways throughout the building were very dark and dismal,even when I founds light switches,half the bulbs Did not work.The front reception and small patio outside,look great week cared for,but sorry this is just window dressing!! The small portable tv in apartment only showed 4 channels,only sky news in English and that did not work properly!! The pool area was closed as someone from a neighbouring apartment through white wash in it. So had to be drained and refilled so was out of action for around 4 days. Was very small area with only a few plastic loungers.There is no internet connection in apartments so if you have children they will have nothing to do!! They would have to be taken out constantly you will have to buy all cleaning products,there us absolutely nothing in these apartments!! So even you had a spill,no mop brush nothing!! Finally the bathrooms stunk,mound and damp on the walls,ceiling. Old fashioned shower which you had to hand hold!! Only bright spot were staff,

Ok for a one night stay

Check in was fine, very helpful lady. Fortunately we only stayed one night. The apartment was huge and clean. Sadly it was very tired! The furniture and decor wasn't great. However, you get what you pay for and for a one nighter it was fine. The bathroom was clean, the shower was fine so that side of things was good. If you plan to stay here for longer be aware that there is no kettle and very limited cooking equipment.
