The staff is rude! Excuding Mr. Tiago that is a very kind person the rest of the staff is not able to do his job.The German lady is unpleasant, and another lady threated me to call the police if I had not sent immediately to them the keys of the Guesthouse that I inadvertley took with me. Mah!!!

The rooms are furnished attractively and clean.The matresses are absolutely wonderful :-) The staff is very friendly, helpful and dedicated. The breakfast buffet offers a big choice....

A really nice hotel with a friendly staff. Quiet and very peaceful place surrounded by the cork oaks with a beautiful panorama, Take advantage of the natural Algarve without being far from the beach. Good restaurants nearby.

Was very hard to leave!!! Thanks, and hopefully back soon!!!

Stayed here recently at the end of a weeks cycling tour. Only wish we'd booked for an extra night as this place is superb. As previous reviews state they only do breakfast, so you need to travel for lunch / dinner. However there is an excellent restaurant and a decent one both less than a mile away. Monchique is around...

Firstly the positives. Clean spacious simple rooms with balcony with spectacular views to Portimao and the ocean. Lovely grounds and pool, perfect place to unwind. The negatives. The guest house only does breakfast so therefore you need to go out for lunch and dinner and a car is essential as there is nothing within easy walking distance. The guest house...
