8/10 Very good

Brilliant Staff
We first visited this hotel 8 years ago as a family and returned as a couple. It has dated a bit (especially the bathroom design) but it has been well maintained and isn't tired. The staff are absolutely excellent and really make the place what it is. Management, housekeeping, concierge all can't do enough to make sure you have everything you need. The location is perfect, right on the best beach in the Algarve. You can walk along the beach to Vilamoura (50 mins). There is a small square just outside the grounds with a few restaurants including a great pizzeria. Albufeira and Vilamoura are a short uber ride away so everything you need is within reach. The hotel pools are also nice and breakfast is excellent. The only complaint we had was that there was a private corporate function while we were there which meant that the bar was closed off. That would have been okay for an evening but the event also went on to 1am which is an hour later than the bar is open to guests. Our upgraded ocean view room was directly above this so we felt like we were at the event. As with corporate events a 100 or so people then stumbled and shouted their way back to their rooms so there wasn't peace until 2.30am. I went and spoke to reception as we had arrived that day and were tired. They were excellent and offered us another room but it just seems that the owners need to rethink mixing corporate and leisure guests.

6/10 Good

Won’t return
Poor service (eg when I called housekeeping no one answered, had to phone reception twice before someone answered). Towels in bathrooms are very worn out (pictures) and when I complained about this one morning there was no response for 11hours. Breakfast good but the same every day. Will try somewhere else next time I visit the Algarve.

Awesome Resort!
Excellent in almost every way gorgeous hotel with friendly and willing staff, spa services were fabulous only excepts: the dining options were limited since one restaurant was closed, the Japanese one and one only had an expensive tasting menu no a la carte options Also would have been nice to have the adult outdoor pool heated
