Nice to write a review and say everything was good. Staff very polite and helpful. All the facilities (rooms, pool, restaurant, toilets etc) were clean and well maintained. If there is one piece of advise I would give it would be to pay a bit extra for a room away from the front of the hotel, these can be a bit noisier.

Hotel is in good location, close to the strip with restaurants and bars. It takes around 25 min to reach Albufeira Old town by foot. Beach is beautiful. Overall, it is an excellent hotel with friendly staff and modern rooms. Definitely will book again for next holiday in Algarve.

Excellent location. Close to the strip but far enough away to still be in a quiet area. Beach Wass great. Only thing I could fault was the pool. The sun loungers were pulled right to the edge of it making it near impossible to get in without feeling that your walking into people. It was an excellent hotel for location, staff friendlness and cleanliness despite the pool will be back.

Peaceful, clean hotel in good location.

Pros: Friendly reception staff and overall cleanliness
Cons: Entertainment Pool bar staff need to go on a customer service course
Location: Only 15 minute walk to Montechoro strip and 7 min taxi ride to Albufeira old town. Lovely beach at the back of the hotel, down steep stairs though.
Stayed here for 4 days in July 2016. Hotel is spotlessly clean and of a high standard. Rooms very comfortable and public areas are decorated in very modern decor, although I did notice that most guests just pass through these areas and don't seem to use them very much. There is a grand piano in the lower bar area next to the restaurant and I did see a pianist playing one night and another night a singer/pianist was playing but there were no guests, so maybe the hotel need to look at providing appropriate entertainment to entice guests to stay in the hotel of an evening. My stay was bed and breakfast and this was adequate. I had breakfast at 9 ish and there was plenty on offer and the breakfast room wasn't too busy at this time but it did get very busy later on and there seemed to be a lack of glasses, crockery etc. Maybe just a wee bit more organisation or staff required. Reception staff were ultra nice and couldn't do enough for you but the pool bar staff were not so. It took a while to be served at the pool bar and when staff appeared, they obviously decided one person serving was enough so disappeared again. One girl in particular tried her hardest not to smile or to engage with guests, I felt she found guests a bit of a bother. Pool area is quite small but fine for the size of the hotel and there always seemed to enough sun beds for guests appearing at any time during the day. All in all I had a lovely stay and would return to this hotel.

Another good stay with minus points

Fourth time we have stayed at the hotel and standards as good as ever. I was however disappointed to find the outside dining area closed due to refurbishment. We were not notified of these works until we arrived in the resort. Also, i had emailed the hotel requesting a third floor room if possible and had been allocated a first floor.

Comfortable, relaxed atmosphere

Modern clean hotel in a good location. Beach only five minute walk away. Nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle but yet just a six euro taxi drive from the old town or five minute walk to the strip. Wifi at the appropriate speed has to be paid for and still keeps dropping out every now and again. Good breakfast. Lovely pool and drinks at the pool bar are reasonably priced. Staff very helpful and friendly. Towels for the pool also cost €1.50 per day with a €20 deposit returned at end of stay.I Would use this hotel again .
