“totally relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

wonderful location above beach and yet very private. Dolly is a superb host and has a wealth of information for the best local restaurants etc. Elegant and romantic setting with wonderful and discreet service, by far the best stay we have ever had on the Algarve.

What a special place to relax. The views are incredible. The beach is only steps away from your room, down an easy trail from the cliff on which the property rests.

At low tide, the beach reveals access to a series of caves and hideaways along the cliffs. Delicious beach side restaurants are only a ten minute walk along the beach sand or, at high tide, along a trail on the cliff's edge. It feels incredibly remote, but is only minutes by car to downtown Portimao.

The owner, Dolly, is very gracious and absolutely adorable. She cares about her guests and you'll want to hug her before you say goodbye.

Room Tip: My room was in the garden and the only one that didn't face the pool and beach views. It was pr...

The Casa Tres Palmeiras is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are large and very clean. Our bathroom was huge. The rooms have doors opening onto the large patio with a beautiful pool and dramatic view of the ocean! Dolly Schlingensiepen is the owner and hostess. She did a terrific job of making us feel welcome. She advised us on restaurants in the area and made suggestions on sights to see. We followed her instructions to a tee and had a wonderful time. Each day a marvelous breakfast was served on the patio and we enjoyed the food and the marvelous view. It was truly a little piece of heaven!

The owner, Dolly is a wonderful host; her property is beautifully situated on a hilltop overlooking a beautiful beach virtually a minute's walk to the beach. Dolly really does care for her guest and at the same time gives you privacy so that you feel comfortable and relaxed. Her staff is wonderful and we were very well looked after. I am definitely going back to this place and would recommend it to all my friends.

You cannot ask for a better view. Be sure to pack some hiking shoes and spend a day exploring the nearby cliffs. The more you stay off the beaten path here, the better the scenery is. Later in the year will reduce the size of the crowds, we went in early October. The staff was wonderful, and you cannot beat drinking champagne and gazing at the shoreline.

The Casa Tres Palmieras was one of our stops on our recent holiday in Portugal. On the top of a cliff offering wonderful views, the “Casa” was fabulous, the epitome of relaxation and a great place to get away from it all. Dolly is a very gracious host and nothing is too much trouble for her. 4 of the 5 bedrooms open out to the pool and have their own terrace with loungers and umbrella, together with towels for the beach and pool. Breakfast is served at your own table poolside, overlooking the ocean and beach…….. what more can I say!

For those that want to venture from the idyllic setting, a short walk takes you down to a fabulous (clean) beach with wonderful cliffs and rock formations. There are stunning walks along the cliffs to right of the “Casa” and to the left takes you to more beaches. For dinner, a 10 minute walk along the beach takes you to 3 restaurants which are right on the beach. They all offer good food at reasonable prices and the fish I had at Restaurant Lino was some of the best (and freshest) I have ever tasted. The walk back after dinner can be tricky because of the tides, so the thoughtful Dolly provides you with a torch so you can take the “high road” back to the “Casa”

All in all a very pleasant stay at an outstanding property, managed by a wonderful lady!

Yes, you can believe the photographs! And the accommodation and service too.
We booked CTP for the first half of our trip and our need for a total wind-down was completely met, in fact we found it so relaxing that we stayed around the pool for most of each day. The beach below is very accessible and perfect for a swim or pottering around in rockpools. Nearby it's worth taking a short taxi ride into Alvor with an excellent selection of bars and restaurants.
Just the place for escaping and recharging.
