Positive Reviews

Stunning Beachfront Locale

A spectacular value for a relaxing getaway Fantastic location, steps away from the beach and no worries if its raining--even fewer steps to the indoor heated pool Pristine gardens and patios, a stroll to the bustle of shopping, cafes and pubs of Alvor and amazing seaviews from the upper floors If you book directly, ask about spa and golf packages & airport transfers.

High Standards

Spotlessly clean rooms and corridors with fastidious staff serving in the leisure areas and restaurants/bars You won't find a towel or a newspaper out of place. Immaculate!

Superb Food Selection

Food is served perfectly prepared and breakfast is promptly and continuously replenished All you can eat on the buffet spreads with both hot and cold items available in vast supply and selection Hot chocolate and coffee is fresh and plentiful, as well as cereals, breads and tasty spreads Some have stated the red meats are not the tenderest, but the chicken and fish won't miss Don't skip a meal!

Negative Reviews

No Wi-Fi In Rooms

If you don't mind waiting until you get to the ground floor, this won't bother you. Otherwise, post as much as you wish while enjoying a drink downstairs and no worries! .

Overbooking Issues

Some have found the matter of overbooking quite distressing here Others have needed to be moved to accommodations elsewhere due to the unfortunate practice With regard to the distance some are travelling specifically to enjoy this particular hotel, such a surprise is incredibly inconsiderate.

Food/Drinks Too Expensive

Some have felt the dinner and drinks at the bar were excessively high priced compared to eats found nearby at other establishments Also, there has been a lack of vegetarian options expressed Consider your options before you pay extra on-site Look around.
