    This was a wonderful hotel and holiday. The staff were fantastic - they were friendly and efficient. Rooms and facilities were modern and spotless. Pools and garden where loungers were situated had beautiful views sweeping across the sea and it was a short walk down a path and steps to the small but perfect beach. Canoes and pedal boats are available for hire if you wish to explore the caves or relax on the water. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was the usual fayre, always fresh and as much as you wished to have. A supermarket was only a 10 minute walk up the road and this was very useful. Mostly older couples and families with younger children seemed to be around but this suited us fine. A taxi into town in the evening cost around 5 euro and there are restaurants and a promenade you can walk up and down.

    My only suggestion for improvement would be that the hotel consider introducing a less expensive evening meal menu that would encourage more people to stay around and create a livelier atmosphere in the bar area. Air conditioning in the gym would be welcome also.

    Very good

    The location is excellent. Perfect for children as it's close to the beach in combination with own swimming pools. The breakfast buffet was good, especially the fresh fruit. Very good service from the reception.

    I would have appreciated a hot plate and some sauce pans for preparing simple meals in addition to the existing microwave oven. A rack for drying swimming costumes and towels on the balcony would have been nice.

    We had an enormous suite, wish we had more time to enjoy it. Very nice to have separate bedroom and bath for adults. Excellent food, enjoyed the omelets at breakfast.

    Wish the pool had been opened a little longer so we could have enjoyed it.

    Location.

    The room was not clean, including the bed sheets. We were interrupted several times in the room (even with sign "do not disturb") by the salesman to atempt sell time share offers. The Bar service was terrible ... more than 30 minutes to deliver our order....

    The hotel was very clean and nicely laid out. The position is fantastic being on the cliffs above a beautiful beach. The poolside bar is quite expensive for lunchtime meals and drinks but the breakfast is plentiful and there are nice restaurants nearby for evening meals. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms very well equipt with fridge and microwave with sink - and they even washed up for us!!!

    Nothing! Except the prices at the poolside bar which I thought were far too much, but the food was nice.

    Fabulous

    Found the hotel bar rates to be fair (not too highly priced as most hotels are). The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was great for getting visiting other area's of the Algarve.

    The breakfast was a little boring when eaten over 6 days. The staff forgot to clean our room one day, but that wasn't a big issue.
