Nice big hotel with decent food options at the buffet. Found it got a bit repetitive though by 3rd or 4th day. Pools nice and kept clean. Room ok, nothing great. Felt a bit tight space wise. We got a pool view room which was good in some aspects but it was also very noisy. Staff all good. Decent value... More

Just back from a week at this hotel in Albufeira and am happy to say that this is a really great place for a late summer holiday. Albufeira itself is more commercialised than we were expecting in that the 'Old Town' is barely indistinguishable from the Strip in terms of endless restaurants, maybe just with slightly more character but not...

This hotel is a nice place to stay breakfast is fine but i would advise people not to go half board,the evening meal is a disaster not very warm and very poor selection not what one would expect of a four star hotel,not worth the money.

Service was very good, meals were very acceptable for holiday hotel lots to choose from. The breakfasts were great but maybe the dinner on occasions lacked choice of well cooked meats. Staff in reception, bars and gym were very helpful and tried to ensure everyone were enjoying themselves. Location was very convenient for old and new town areas.

This was our second stay at this hotel on a B&B basis. Breakfast offer all the usual between cooked and continental which is plentiful. Rooms are spacious and our balcony was huge. Could benefit from having tea, coffee and hot chocolate making facilities. Fridge and safe I would say are a necessity. Both are provided albeit a small charge for... More

“We had a room at the front of the hotel. We sat out on the balcony for some of the day but kept the windows closed at night, there is a main road outside. As the room had very good air conditioning we didn't find this to be a problem.”
