We are just home from a beautiful week's stay here. The family suite was huge- a modern, clean and well-equipped villa set in lovely gardens with a balcony and the sea in the distance Its cleaned daily and the beds made, which I think is a nice touch.

This is a great resort for peace and quiet in the sun and excellent value for money - we are here right now and can't fault it. Highly recommended, especially in low season at about £60 per night with breakfast. We have the cheapest option which is the deluxe suite and it's a 1000 sq. ft. house! The family suite... More

This is the second time we are here, and it's always a pleasure. Nice houses, lovely garden and nice location. Love the surroundings, with very calm spots nearby. It an excellent choice in the low season in Algarve.

We were there for a few days, and the place was a house. Very clean, great price for off season. Great Breakfast selection included. The only downer was no WIFI in the rooms, But they do have routers available if you have a computer. Cool, calm and great to just chill and relax.
