Nice centrally located hotel in Olhão close to many good restaurants. Breakfasts were amazing and included a really wide variety of options covering every taste. Breakfast & bar staff were super helpful & friendly. Reception staff were sadly mostly unhelpful wrt to assisting with arranging tours or making any recommendations. 2 lovely white gowns are supplied along with 2 small complimentary bottles of water & a couple of coffee maker pods. Thereafter everything incurred a cost. Capsules for the in-room Nespresso machine (€1.50 ea) and to use the steam room or sauna, an extra cost of €10 and compulsory head caps (@ €18 ea) to use the indoor pool. All facilities only opened from 9am. A separate bath and shower would have been appreciated. The sea-facing balcony was lovely with great views over the marina, even from the 1st floor bar and pool patio. The room was cleaned promptly every day - the old sliding cupboard doors were not user friendly and did not close well. While block-out curtains are supplied, a lot of light streamed in through the sides - it was impossible to close properly. This may be an issue for those who are light sensitive especially in the sea facing rooms in the middle of the building under spotlights all night long. The bed configuration is 2 singles together - the quality of the bedding was acceptable, the bed was on the hard side and the pillows very uncomfortable. We would probably find alternative accommodation for future visits to Olhão.

An amazing hotel, very big but very quiet at the same time. Super luxury. Rooms were large and really comfortable. Staff were all really friendly and helpful. Food was incredibly good, huge choice for breakfast. Just can’t fault anything, and best of all, only a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport.

This property is not 5* - it’s very tired in places. Terrible food, menu options. Service is dreadful. Lucky to even get a lounger by the pool area where people pollute the air with smoke and discarded cigarette butts. A lot of the loungers were broken, internet access was poor. Overall very disappointing.
