Overall this is a very nice hotel. The garden is stunning and access to the beach is yards from the hotel.Room we got overlooked car park which was not great to be honest. Bar prices for snacks really good but price of drinks way out of sync with local pubs/cafes

Amazing hotel on a beautiful beach with shallow clear water and sand which went on for miles. Can't recommend it enough, hotel and room very stylish and great food. Half an hour walk to Alvor fishing village but worth it. Hope to return again in the future.
