                8.2

                Hotel was great. Clean room very big up to easliy 6 ppl. Big balcony, everything in a kitchen what you need.

                More my fault then hotel but hotel is situated a bit to far out from albufeira and old town is you are on foot. Need a car big time. And another thing after 2 days we couldnt sleep in bedroom down to weird noise lake a mouse between wall like scraching noise and we had to sleep in a day room but it was great! ;)

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Staff very good

                Meny faults with room when first occupied

              • Single
                6.2

                Staff very helpful.

                Below - average fixtures, fittings and amenities and very poorly designed rooms. Poor value for money overall. Would not stay if required to pay full-price for room.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                nice swimming pools. clean apartments.

                a little far out. 15-20 min walk to the strip though taxis cheap 3-4euro

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                liked the area. hotel was quiet. enjoyed the pool. location suited us as we enjoy walking. convenient for buses

                we felt our accommodation needed an upgrade. It needed some new kitchen equipment and urgently needed new kitchen chairs.

              • Couple
                7.0

                it is good value for money

                a bit to far from the centre, also not enough sunbeds at pool considering the size of the hotel

              • Couple
                8.2

                The apartments were very clean and were a good comfortable size. I bed comfortably fits 4 adults. You have the use of adjoining gym and indoor pool in sister hotel.

                This hotel is 10 min walk uphill from main area. This Is no problem unless you have mobility problems or young children.

              • Group of friends
                5.8

                The price of room because It had 50% off discount.

                I dislike the breakfast, little variety, the bread was dry and the high price for the quality.

              • Family with children
                7.8

                The familly room is really confortable with two suites + room + kitchen. The location is good and access to the beach area is easy.

                Old furnitures.

              • Family with children
                8.4

                Friendly staff. Clean rooms and kitchen. Quick check in and out. Air condition, hair dryer, equipped kitchen. Beach is 3-5 minutes on foot.

                A bit old style building.
