Only let down by some aspects of the food.

Pros: The all-round ambience and coastal location. A bonus was a bottle of quality Portuguese red wine - apparently as we were ebookers platinum customers.
Cons: The buffet was mostly good, but aspects that weren’t up to 5-star standards were the bland puddings and the stale bread at breakfast.
Location: The adjacent Salgados nature reserve: coastal boardwalk and good beach café.
We had noticed this place as a very posh hotel on a previous Algarve holiday. We were looking for a convenient hotel to cover the one night between the end of our timeshare week and our flight from Faro. When this hotel came up on the search engine at a good price for half-board, we jumped at it. We paid a supplement for a ‘nature-view’ room - overlooking the nature reserve. If you do pay this supplement, make sure you get a top floor room (there are 3 bedroom floors) as the trees probably obscure the view from the lower floors. The bedroom and fittings were a good standard - difficult to fault and including a kettle with tea/coffee facilities. The hotel has a quite extensive outdoor pool and garden with pleasant shaded sitting areas. There is access to what we were told was a private beach - but the only thing at that time of year that seemed to be private was the gate from the garden to the beach - controlled by the room key. The half-board tariff gives buffet dinner and breakfast; the alternative for dinner was a 15 euro credit per person to use at the hotel’s pizza and Japanese restaurants, The Nespresso corner café serves coffee with amazing milk froth. We will happily come here again - and hope that the food then reaches 5-star standards in all respects.

Good family hotel

It's a medium range family hotel, price reflects the standards. Positives: enormous swimming pool and heated baby pool. Breakfast is average, evening buffet is edible not amazing, Italian restaurant has dull menu, the Japanese restaurant is undoubtedly the worst I have ever eaten. If you are used to Tokyo/ London/ NY standards you will be most appalled.
