Enjoyed our stay.
Really enjoyed our 4 night stay. Friendly staff, lots of amenities and very clean in all areas. The pool area and grounds are very nice too.

No air conditioning
We stayed in room 245. We paid over $300 for a one night stay and we didn’t have air conditioning. It was a miserable experience. We’ll never go back here.

Hi-de-hi in lovely situation with good facilities.
Good situation and buildings with what looked like a lovely outdoor pool and also a smaller heated indoor pool. Margarita(?) on reception was very welcoming on arrival. BUT it is a bit hi-de-hi with rules and with opportunities to upsell - a bit like McDonalds - "would you like fries with that?". For example, this is the FIRST and ONLY place I have ever been asked to wear a swimming cap since leaving school over 40 years ago. I didn't want to get my hair wet when I went for a dip in the hot pool so put on a shower cap. Within 2 minutes I was approached and told that unless I put on a proper swimming cap, which they presented to me to buy, I had to get out. I wasn't swimming - just soaking with my head out of the water. Then the wifi - you can have it free in the bar, but if you want access in the bedroom, you need to pay a daily free. The breakfast range was extensive, but not quality. Parking spaces are extremely narrow and appear in short supply.

Nearby great beaches!!
Good location very close to gorgeous beaches in carvoeiro, marinha beach and others. Also very close to restaurants. Entrance to the trail is very easy and you can enjoy up to 5 k of hiking with gorgeous views. Good breakfast and good service in general. Only one thing that we didn't like much, internet connection only worked in the lobby area (or you needed to pay for it if you wanted in the room). Internet should be just for free in the whole complex.
