We stayed here in August 2013. Arrived at 8am and was told we couldn't get into our room before 1:30pm. So had to drag our luggage around with us. When we got into the room it was a good size and clean. However, the balcony door wouldn't lock, we reported it, but nothing was done about it. The tv was...

Starting with the baby's cot wich was made of iron and had no protection whatsoever, and the cleaning was so poor that on the first day a pair of white socks turned grey! Also the pools were not clean enough. We had half board service and...

Stayed at The Estrela Apartments on 1/2 board basis for 8 nights in July. Our stay would have been fine but for the fact we booked 1/2 board. The restaurant is run independently of the apartments As the area is very quiet we thought it best to include dinner. The apartments themselves are spacious and well maintained, excellent house keeping...
