A very nice hotel but a little bit away from the town. But some very nice restaurants nearby and only a short walk from the beach. Staff at the hotel we're very friendly. Hotel could do with a quiet room for reading, ect. But other than that we liked the hotel.

We couldn't fault our experience during our weeks stay. All the staff were excellent by being genuinely friendly and helpful. The hotel throughout was spotlessly clean and the food was of good standard. Our room was great, we had a good view, as nothing was high rise to obscure the view to the sea. The beach was a short distance...

Great hotel. Staff were very helpful and mostly friendly. Apolonia supermarket and coffee shops nearby. Restaurants were mostly closed due to the "down" season. Boardwalk is a great way to walk along the beach if you have difficulty walking on the beautiful Gale beach. Security did not appear to be a problem in the area although a lot of the...

The hotel is quite large, situated in a quiet area, about 10 minutes drive from Albufeira proper. It has a large enough sandy and quiet beach (Gale) at 5 minutes walking distance and a big supermarket (Apollonia) at less than 5 minutes walking distance. The staff were always more than willing to help us with various little things, the food...
