    Phenomenal, will definitely be back

    Poor 2.0
    Don’t go
    Room was not what was listed, smelled bad, poor aualoty, NOT a 5 star hotel.

    Very Good 8.0
    Paradise on the Algarve.
    My wife and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. The resort overall was lovely, spacious and clean. The only two issues we really had was that the wifi was absolutely terrible and the pillows were not very comfortable. The lack of wifi was not too much of a problem for us but if that is what you need then you won't be happy. Also the beach area and pools were terrific. If you find the restaurant too expensive there are some lovely alternatives nearby.
    Jason, ie6 night romance trip
    Good 6.0
    not a 5 star!
    I've been staying in this hotel for 6 nights. This hotel should only be 4 star. The room looks clean but it's too dark and no bath tub. The spa is just okay but what caught my attention was the jacuzzi in the spa. It was terrible because the water looks dirty. The breakfast is good but the plates are not very clean. overall cleanliness, 2/5!

    Lovely big spacious rooms, nice rainfall shower. We found the bed and pillows very soft. We were able to choose from pillow menu but unfortunately could do nothing about the bed.
