It was the first time I stay in this hotel and from outside I never thought it was a very good hotel. But I booked I day before I checked-in and it was a very good choice! First the room where I staid was just fabulous, probably because I choose a family suite with two bedrooms and a living room. The food was very good too, but the buffet was just half served because there were not so many gets. The staff is nice and it always for the gets. In general the hotel is excellent and it is a very good value for the money!More

An excellent surprise
We stay 2 nights in this amazing hotel after new year in a lovely family suite. Room: lovely suite with big room with big living room, small but lovely bathroom and connect to another standard with nice bathroom with a door. A nice varanda, tea and coffee facilities, very clean, lovely and good bath amenities, pool towels, AC, fridge, very comfortable beds and a lots of space. Restaurant: buffet restaurant at dinner time with live cook and a lot of choice like vegetarian food, entrances, fish, meat, deserts, ice creams, cheese and much more. Breakfast is very good too with a lot of choice, however, if you want a omelette or an express is extra coast..., donÂ´t seems very correct... THere are a La Carte restaurant too but I can give my opinion because we didnÂ´t dinner there. At lunch time there are a la carte restaurant/bar near pool area with indoor tables and a lot of outdoor tables. Plenty of choice with elaborate disches and snacks, drinks, cakes, ice creams. This restaurant is open until 6 P.M ( maybe in summer time until later ) and foods are really very good. Is not very cheaper but is not much more expensive than restaurants around and with much better service. There are a bar near lobby hotel with drinks and live music all nights. Hotel has great locacion with lovely sea views and cliffs, there are many small and almost private spaces in gardens with sunbeds and beach/sea view. There a a nive but nor very big pool with many sunbeds and lovely gardens. Tennis court, minigolf, a nice SPA with indoor pool. To Olhos de Agua town is more and less 7 minutes walking and is a very easy walking. There are too a shop in front of hotel main entrance but only opens in medium and hight season. The best is the staff, very friendy and helpfull, my congratulations to Carlos ( sub chefe Bar ). Beach in 5 minutes walking to the cliffs and has direct acess to the hotel. There are animation team but respect the rest of the guest. Is an amazing hotel, with lovely position on cliffs, amazing views, quit enought, near beach, village, near bus stop, excellent service, lovely room, couldnÂ´t be better! We will return!More
Leonor, Lisbon, Portugal
a beautiful relaxing hotel
We stayed over Christmas and had a lovely time. This is a lovely hotel where Cristmas was made very evident with trees, lights, beautiful fruit decorations and plants etc. The staff are very attentive and the hotel itself is very clean and comfortable. I would say although the food is lovely it was competitive. A short walk into the small town proves to have alot more than at first is evident. At the bottom of the road (downhill) keep walking left to the turn, keep going round to the right and you will pass loads of places to eat and a lovely little beach. You can have a lovely meal especially fish in the restaurant just by the sea. At the bottom of the road you can also get lovely pizza, or go up the steps nearby and there's a fabulous chinese restaurant, also there's a couple of local cafes which are clean and very reasonable, keep on walking and theres plenty of shops etc. Buses and taxis are also nearby and going to Albuferia (the old town is lovely) one way or Vallamoura the other way which has a lovely marina but plenty of walking going round it. The hotel itself has beautiful scenery as its built on a cliff or by going down plenty of steps you will be on a beautiful clean beach which goes on forever!More

Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Beautiful sea views from pool area or the balconies with sea view. Great location for bars and restaurants however not a lot open out of season. Two negative point were the food although plentiful is buffet style and is not hot enough on occasions , and there was an ammonia like smell in the bedroom/ bathroom which I suspect is a the disinfectant used for insect control. Having said that I would definitely return.More
Nice hotel with swimming pool and beach access
Most of the guests in this hotel are on a package tour; it is obviously very popular among German tourists. We were on a road trip and we booked the room over an internet portal. The hotel is beautifully located on a cliff overlooking the sea. It has over 300 rooms. A steep path leads to the beach. The rooms are comfortably furnished. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom is large enough, bright and clean. We did not appreciate the charging of additional costs that should generally be included, such as a daily feee for the use of safety box of â¬ 1.50, or for the Internet â¬ 6.-/ day, â¬ 16.- for 3 days or â¬ 25.- per week. The breakfast is plentiful and good. The evening buffet is offered for â¬ 23.-, which I feel is too expensive compared to local prices and for the small selection of seafood. The range of typical Portuguese desserts was not convincing either. I expected more than pizzas and pork schnitzels. The Salad bar was plentiful. As an alternative, I can recommend the Churrasceria Tavertino, in a 10-minute walk distance, serving BBQ fish and meat, traditional Portuguese cuisine reasonably priced. The other surrounding restaurants were partially closed in November. The pool area is beautifully set in the garden. The Spa/Sauna is much too small for a 300 room hotel and fully booked for days ahead; this in November where the occupancy is relatively low. The employees are courteous and speak fluently at least one foreign language. Free parking is available in front of the hotel.More
