    Large hotel next to the beaches and Albufeira.

    Great hotel location above the beaches. Excellent outdoor areas within the complex. Parking is a big problem in August very hard to find a spot anywhere near the hotel. Breakfast buffet basic. Could be better.

    Only rooms facing the ocean are worth it

    The cheapest rooms in the hotel are facing the parking lot and don't make sense. Because they are still expensive. For 30 euro you get an upgrade to a room facing the ocean. The rooms and decor are pretty outdated. It's just an OK hotel.

    Great cliff top position with panoramic views near to several excellent restaurants. Bathrooms have recently been refurbished but shower not a good design - leaks on floor and shower head loose, kept dropping down.

    The Location is Amazing. But not much selection of food. always repeated everyday specially in the break fast. When I checked out and about to pay my Bill (drinks) some receipts not belong to me and then they sorted out.

    Nice hotel, with a great breakfast, dinner options not that good. Staff could be more helpful. There was a terrible strong smell of sewage coming from our bathroom.

    Fabulous location. Indoor pool is small, strong smelly chlorine which can sting your eyes and extra charges for use of the sauna.

    Great location, lovely breakfast and amenities. A fee needs to be payed to use the sauna and steam room, although the steam room didn't seem to work properly.

    The rooms were not protected from outside noise and left it quite exposed in the morning, especially on the first floor.
