Our first visit here. So far so good. The staff are polite and friendly. The hotel is clean and not cluttered. Our room had everything you needed. We have only had the breakfasts and there is enough to set you up. The bar prices are high compared to in town but there are a few alternatives close by. Its only about a 15 minute walk into Alvor. As others have said. There should be sun beds by the pool. I agree. We would come here again. ☺. Steve B.

Really enjoying our stay, a short walk into Alvor, the staff are all lovely, amazingly good cocktails. The apartment is very clean and well presented. They clean and restock toiletries daily. The breakfast is great, nice variation and even if you come late, the full range of items will be available. The only downside is the sun loungers by the pool, the hotel isn't really busy yet it's a battle for a seat. Some visitors reserve beds with their towels which although is said to be against the rules, no one checks so it's not enforced. Just a bit of shame to not be able to visit the pool when you want!
