Excellent hotel! Apr 14, 2013
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with my boyfriend in April. The journey from Faro airport takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes. When we arrived I was immediately impressed. The outside and lobby of the hotel are gorgeous. The lobby, lounge and bar area as filled with many comfy chairs and sofas. The decor is elegant and stylish. There is even an indoor waterfall! The staff were very nice and extremely helpful throughout our stay, always going the extra mile and making an effort to be polite and look after us, without being over bearing.

The hotel and our room was immaculately clean. The room was lovely, spacious and comfortable. There was a window seat with a pull out mattress, which would be great for families. There was a safe, fridge, TV, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, air conditioning, and a welcome platter of meats, fruit and bread. The TV had a variety of channels in English, Portugese and German. I slept well every night. Our view was stunning (see photos).

We sat by the pool a lot and went for a dip. The water was quite cool, but I found it refreshing! The sunloungers and parasols were comfortable and because of the time of year there was always space. You can eat by the pool and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. I think a sandwich was about 7 euros and soft drinks were 3 euros. We also played mini golf, which was 3 euros each for a 9 hole course, we had fun playing. There is a swing set too, tennis courts and a volleyball net. The beach is a short (2-3 minutes) walk.

Breakfast in the morning was excellent. They had everything you could possibly want. Large variety of bread, croissants, muffins, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, cold meat and cheese, hot food (bacon, eggs, beans, sausages etc.) jams, chocolate milk, hot drinks and juices. We got room service one night and the food was really nice. There is a restaurant pretty much right next door that we ate at one night and it has excellent food and staff. There is also a few cafes nearby and a small newsagents with big bottles of water for only 1 euro.

We took the free hotel bus to local town Tavira on a Tuesday - I think they also do this trip on a Thursday and also offer several other free trips to other towns both in the days and evenings. We also took taxis to Monte Gordo and Vila Real. Both small towns, with plenty of cafes and restaurants. Definitely a quiet relaxed area to visit. Best for families and couples. I think there is a waterpark nearby and a zoo, but I am not sure on the details. Not the place to party every night.

My only complaints (slight niggles at best) were that there was no iron in the room, a TV guide would have been nice, and that we got twin beds when we asked for a double. To be fair, we didn't tell the hotel about these issues, because they weren't big enough to affect our stay.
