Excellent staff friendly and helpful. Lovely modern hotel in a quiet location. Would suggest bed and breakfast rather than half board as restaurant was out of hotel and open to the public, also not much choice of food

Our second visit to South Beach and again delighted with our stay. The hotel is in a perfect location right on the famous boardwalk overlooking the sea. The breakfast is excellent with efficient service from some excellent staff. Will be returning again.

Me and my mum decided to have a relaxing holiday away together with the recent loss of my dad (mum's husband) and we picked this hotel, and I am so glad we did. From arrival the staff were so attentive, welcomed you with a smile and nothing was ever too much for them.

We stayed in room 124 which had a beautiful garden terrace where we spent most of our time enjoying the sun. The rooms are so spacious and really quirky as is the rest of the hotel, but how they have done this is brilliant. Check out the surfboard used at breakfast. They even wrote message on the floor which was a lovely touch.

The pool area was amazing with a selection of 3 different pools, plenty of sunbeds to choose from and relaxing areas to chill.

We were bed and breakfast and the breakfast we had every morning was delicious. So much to choose from. Fresh milk rather than those little cartons you get. You can choose to have omelettes, fried eggs, poached eggs and boiled eggs cooked fresh from the kitchen.

The setting is beautiful with only a short distance (1 minute walk) away from the beach and about a 10 minute walk to the centre.

We can't wait to go back there again next year.

Stayed here last week with three friends on a golfing trip. First time in Portugal. We were all so impressed with the hotel. Small two storey building. We were welcomed on arrival by friendly helpful staff and a complementary G&T. The staff are all young and really enthusiastic. They all work extremely hard to ensure the guests enjoy their stay and everything always done with a smile. The rooms are very comfortable with free WiFi, large screen TV and a safe . Breakfast is a buffet which is excellent - great choice of cold meats cheeses and hot food. breads cakes and lots of tea and coffee. Constantly topped up. Great bar area and drinks are not expensive - pint of Superbok beer was 4 Euros and a wonderful white Sangria 5 Euros. Very smart relaxing pool area with lots of room - 3 pools and multiple sun loungers. Easy access to beach and boardwalk. only 15 mins walk into Alvor. Staff happy to recommend local restaurants and made all our bookings. The staff really made our stay special and when we had to leave very early one morning for golf, there were 4 take away breakfast beautifully packed and ready for us. The staff are a credit to the organisation who run this hotel. Can't recommend highly enough. Would not now stay anywhere else in Alvor.
