Exceptional 10.0
The best in the Algarve.
The San Rafael Atlantique was outstanding in every way. The staff were friendly, the hotel was spotless, the room was outstanding and the food was the best buffet I have eaten in an all inclusive. It was so good I tried to book again for the end of March but it is only it’s sister hotel Sao Rafael Suites which is doing all inclusive from the beginning of March. The Atlantique will do full board.

I would not class this hotel as a 5 star, it is more like a 3.5! For an all inclusive you Are very limited to the food and drink you can have. All the staff seemed miserable, it’s a shame as the hotel has the potential to be very nice!!

Disappointed this considering we always stay here.
We have stayed here for the 4th year as it is always amazing. However this year was a bit disappointing ad the staff were not friendly, the food was constantly cold even though the dining room had just opened. We reported it to staff and they were not bothered. Lots of new conditions were in place, no snacks on terrace etc even we had eaten there on previous nights. Rude staff, 1 very pleasant bar person who was polite and friendly.

Lovely hotel, lovely staff. Beach is walking distance, everything else requires a taxi. Weather isn’t great in April, will return in a hotter month.

Fabulous Few Days relaxing in comfort.
Had a fabulous few days here with friends. Lovely hotel, spacious suites and the staff were so helpful. Food was lovely but we did have to warm it sometimes with the microwave. That's normal with buffet food I suppose. The A la carte restaurant was good quality. Pool and spa area spotless. Good for local golf and the beach was stunning.

Good Holiday- needs variety of Veg food
I came here with my family. I must say we were catered and looked after. My little one enjoyed spending time in indoor pool and at kids club. The staff in kids club were good and all DBS checked. it was an open drop in and pick up through out the whole day. Plus it is situated in the middle of the hotel so we could always pop in on the way to see how my child was getting on. loved the outside gym plus the tennis court. i must say we were able to do lots of activities inside the hotel itself as a family. Spa was good too. However, there wasn't much of a choice for vegetarians. From the galore of food on the buffet counter for us veggies we had to have same food everyday. which became boring after the 3rd day itself. even the salads that we were able to pick as a starter were turned into non-veg the next day. hence, even with the salads we had to stick with the basic ones. Therefore, we had a slight disappointment with the Vegetarian Variety. Over all good and i do recommend it.
