The hotel staff were brilliant and from the moment we arrived until the day we left we were well looked after. Reception staff were helpful, bar staff were good natured, restaurant staff were attentive, cleaners were also lovely to speak to. All staff spoke English to a good standard (although we tried our best at Portuguese too) The hotel was well situated for the beach and had plenty of space around the pool throughout the day (usual towels at dawn for the best seats though). There were no life guards at the pool though, so bear that in mind if someone in your party is a weak swimmer. The all-inclusive drinks were varied and as it was just me and my two daughters the 2 drink rule at the bar didn’t really impact us but there were a couple of disgruntled guests. There were also mini golf, tennis courts, indoor pool etc... which we didn’t use.... We booked a few excursions directly with the hotel (1 x day trip on a boat and 1 x coach trip to Lisbon) which were well organised and reasonably priced. They do a variety of boat trips but we chose the full day trip with a barbecue which I'd recommend. In my opinion the hotel entertainment could do with a little improvement, the animation staff seemed to work very hard but aside from the occasional activity in the pool and the mini disco they weren’t very evident throughout the day (but some people prefer not to be bothered by the animation team so I guess it works both ways) The post disco entertainment wasn't wonderful but the fact that there were a good crowd of guests and it was such a relaxed atmosphere made up for it. The hotel was a good mix of nationalities and couples/families which made for a very safe and enjoyable environment All inclusive breakfast was ok, lunch was slightly better and the evening meal was good and we always found something to eat at meal times. The snack bar by the pool was very handy from 11-5 but the food was a bit repetitive over our week there. Another guest did point out to us that there wasn’t much choice for vegetarians other than salad. There's also a free bus to the town centre (which was walkable 1km along the beach) Oh and our room, maybe needed slightly updating but we struck lucky with plenty of space and 2 balconies on different sides of the room. (Room A501). Towels, bedding etc... changed daily as required and floors were swept, surfaces cleaned. The lifts were a bit small but always available and the hotel shop seemed to open as and when someone was available to run it as opposed to being aligned to the advertised times. There were also loads of restaurants, pubs, clubs, shops etc… within 5-10 minutes walking distance. One issue we did have which was not the fault of the hotel....were the mosquitos. Take repellent/spray etc... On the whole it was a good 3 star hotel, with great staff, lovely guests and nice pool/grounds.
It was a good stay All incisive you get what you pay for. Most staff were good and friendly. Apart from short barman in the bar serving drinks and Pre made cocktails.. very Rude, made a complaint but no apology made.
What a great holiday! The staff we so friendly to our little boy (and us). We were surprised at what you get for your money as we didn't expect much from a 3star hotel. It's kept very clean, the buffet/snack food was good and always plenty around. The holiday pool was always quieter which was great for us and could usually get a sun bed. The room felt quite big, we were in block A on the fourth floor and it had a sea view which we weren't expecting. A great location, far enough away from the strip (10/15min walk with a little one!) and a great little land train to take you from the strip to the old town and back. The old town had loads of souvenir shops, bars and restaurants, all pretty child friendly. Accessed from the escalators to get down to the old town which was fine if the pushchair was folded up. Beaches were very clean as was the old town. A lift at the end of the beach takes you to the marina which our little boy loved and we took a boat trip to see the caves and dolphins - definitely worth doing!
Not a luxury hotel by any means but rooms are cleaned well and the location is good for a last minute cheap accommodation. Hotel needs a lot of TLC but at the bargain price we paid in high season you should't be expecting much more.
This is a nice hotel on the outskirts. The hotel rooms seem to be more modern the higher the level. We travelled there in March and it was a good week away. The rooms were immaculate as was the hotel. The staff were ok but nothing brilliant in the way of going out their way. Its a long walk to the centre of town and it is hilly so you'd be advised to get a taxi. Overall a good holiday and the hotel is well positioned by the sea.
We arrived around 12pm room not ready until about 3pm but was ready by about 2pm The young girl on reception was pleasant and fairly new told us our room was in block C which was to the left of reception down the corridor then you tend to run out of sings but as you get to the lift (which is still out of order)you need to go down the stairs to the bottom then across the service road to block C this block has view of the kids pool and a sea view unless you need to go to reception you will need to go up those stairs again but now the tips once on the service road a quicker way to reception is turn right up the hill as you turn the corner to your left are stepping stones in the grass go up these thro the gate next to the hotel this brings you to the carpark turn left to front door or right and on your way to the strip turn left out of block C and either down about 20 steps to pool area or 6 steps on the right takes you around the front of the dining room which will involve more steps but not as many as there could be. The hotel as stated is dated but is clean as are the rooms with friendly staff. But beware there are a lot of Gulls in and around the sunbeds, overall we enjoyed our stay
On arrival we were greeted by a lovely man at reception which made us instantly feel welcome. The rooms and hotel in general are a bit dated but was not an issue to us as everything else was perfect. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were always great and they have a good selection of drinks available for all inclusive compared to some other hotels. The hotel also offers a free bus service to the old town and is only a 10 minute walk to the new strip and is right on the beach. There were plenty sun loungers available, you didn't need to get up at crazy hours to find one for the day, latest we went down was around 9.30 and there were still plenty. It was a good stay and we will definitely be back.
Stayed here for 4 nights, short break. Stayed on an all inclusive basis Food- Decent, good selection, always found something to eat. Self service restaurant by the pool was handy. (restaurant lunch was quite similar so sometimes didn't bother to go in) Drinks- good selection, especially in the dancing bar Pool area- warning the pool is VERY deep, without a lifeguard present I thought it was a little dangerous. considering that it was the start of the summer holidays it was not crowded Rooms- YES they are dated but are cleaned to a good standard. The fan on the balcony was awful constantly blowing out hot air (linked to AC in bedroom) which prevented us from sitting on the balcony Wifi- Pity it is only available in the lobby area. STAIRS- if you do not like to walk a load of stairs avoid this place, stairs to go everywhere!! Beach- Lovely just a pity about the steep walk down. Shuttle bus- very convenient Entertainment- think this could be improved Overall a good stay
I do love my luxury however the 3* all inclusive short break I had here with my daughter was a surprisingly pleasant experience and proves that you should never knock anything until you try it! Yes the hotel is dated and needs a refurb but the location is excellent-10 minute walk to the new town strip and right on top of the beach. 3 pools with free sunbeds (early risers will always have their towels out), 3 bars, 2 restaurants (one self serve at lunch), a free shuttle bus to the old town and friendly staff. We had a sea view room with air con which I wasn't expecting and a large fridge too. Hot water was available all the time and the room was clean & sufficient for our needs-sleep! Food was edible with a fair selection and drinks were readily available. We preferred the old town for nightlife and the marina is lovely too. A very relaxing break which was good value for money, provided much laughter and quality time with my mini me. Obrigada portugal ;-)
Hotel is dated. Rooms wasn't very clean. Location was great. 5 minutes to the beach. The food was good. The all inclusive was a bit of a joke 2 drinks per person. And at night you could be in a que for 20 minutes.. I believe bar staff were purposely slowing it down. All in all you get what you pay for and the price we payed was extremely cheap and me and my familiy enjoyed our stay at this resort.
