Algarve tour
Excellent value. Staff were excellent. The breakfast had everything you could want and very good. Room was comfortable and clean. We stayed 4 nights. Perfect location for the area hikes and tours. Many very good restaurants in easy walking distance.

Love this place, stayed here 6 years on the trot. The staff are fantastic, the location is perfect, however.... ...... The food is ordinary and the bedrooms are tired. When we started coming the cost was about £100 a night. That cost has nearly doubled. Some of that is beyond the hotel's control (exchange rates) but not all and, generally, it's not such good value for money anymore. We love it but I've left the last few times thinking that I could do better for the money

Lovely stay and location.
Location is optimal for wandering. Beautifully situated on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic and a short stroll into Carvoeiro. Property was well-maintained. Food was plentiful with good quality/taste overall. Reception and Manager Gil were very professional and helpful with dinner reservations, taxis, etc. Biggest complaint was with the housekeeping as our room was not well kept at all. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

One night only
I picked this place on a last minute decision to attend the Carvoeiro Black and White festival. So we didn't arrive until early evening and departed the next day. We had an hour by the main pool/patio area that was very pleasant, but the pool was a little too cool to enter. I've stayed in other Portuguese hotels and I think it must be due to regulations that you must wear a swimming cap for indoor pools, we didn't want to pay €5 each for a cap so gave that a miss. Room was spacious with a fridge, TV etc. Bathroom was a little bated but functional. Breakfast finished too early on Sunday (10am) and check out was non negotiable noon. All in all a good value stay.

Relaxing with great views.
We got a good deal and thought our whole experience was great value for money. Beautiful views of the ocean, peaceful and quiet resort. Everything you need for a relaxing few days is available. Friendly and helpful staf, especially Rui in the restaurant. Good buffet morning and evening. Location perfect to explore the beautiful Algarve. Will be back!!!
