I wanted to leave a better review, truly I did. This was our second stay in this hotel for an exercise and spa break with a group of friends. The location of the hotel is great, lovely beach and a nice stroll along the board walk into Alvor. The outdoor pool area is nice, although the pool was absolutely filthy...

I have just spent a few days at this hotel and overall it was fine. A few negatives in that the bar staff were generally rude and unfriendly, breakfast was great but evening meal not up to much. The room was clean and the housekeeping staff lovely, although my room on the first floor had a constant noise of water...

The hotel was well positioned only 2 minutes from the sea, 20 minutes walk from the town centre and less than 30 minutes from several good golf courses. The room had all relevant amenities and was well serviced each day. There was an offer for an all you could eat buffet in the hotel restaurant the night I arrived for...

We booked this hotel as a golf package at very short notice. The photos in the marketing material do not do justice to how nice the hotel is. Yes, it is a typical 1970's build and is more functional than stylish, but in a way that is its beauty. From the minute we checked in the reception staff were polite...

The hotel is very close to the beach and within a convenient distance to shops and restaurants. The staff were a real highlight and were great with my 3-year-old daughter. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Have been to this hotel on several occasions but our latest visit was marred on arrival by the intransigence of the staff on reception which meant we had to email the travel company to get transfers to and from the golf course, the fact that this holiday was booked in September added to my annoyance. Our arrival coincided with my...

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a golf package. Although the hotel is very characteristic of 1970's mass development, it is clean inside and has a lovely terrace and garden leading to a wonderful beach. Good selection of hotel facilities (indoor and outdoor pool, spa etc), though the bar lacks any charm. The beach and sea view from...
