            • Family with children
              6.6

              The suite was spacious and quiet. Very comfortable beds. Nice swimming pools. We were provided with plastic bathinette for our baby without asking (there was only shower) which was kind,

              Breakfast was disaster. Very very poor choice (and even poorer when you arrived just before 10.30). Pieces of onion in fruit salad (not only once),no yoghurt.We stayed 12 nights and there was no change, no improvement, English speaking staff was trying to help, the portuguese ones seemed to enjoy it. No shampoo available in the bathroom, just soap in containers.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              My feeling while at the hotel was always more space per guest than any other one I recently stayed. The staff was very friendly, evidently perfectly trained. I liked the spa facilities, which I used extensively. I will definitely suggest staying here to my friends.

              Not to say I did not like it at all, but the food could be more varied.

            • Couple
              7.4

              The hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable, the staff efficient and helpful, breakfast was abundant and good, but a bit monotonous

              The hotel is on a cliff and there is no direct access to the sea, the closest beach is Praia Formosa, 5 min by car or bus

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Good value for money - the facilities were excellent. You need to buy a bus pass to get into town as its a long walk.

            • Single
              8.2

              (i) excellent public transport connection; (ii) very modern, but absolutely freindly design; (iii) professional utilisation of the not really favourable layout of the plot (iv) very convenient open pool area; (v) good value for price; (vi) open air breakfast area is magnificant with fresh wind from the ocean

              (i) the operation of the safe was hectic during the weekend (later on on Monday they can fix it) (ii) the accessability of the beach relatively difficult from the hotel;(iii) there is huge, but from the website not transparent difference in the case of the services offered in the different buildings (I think that the 'C' is clearly the superior one)

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Nice and big rooms, indoor pool, jakuzi, sauna, restaurant, terrace, location.

              Staff at reception could be a little bit more active.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Large territory, great location with wonderful views and city beach near it. 20-30 minutes walk to the centre of the city. Near hotel there are nice restaurants, bars and shopping-center with a supermarket. Friendly staff in the hotel, some events in the evenings. Quite silent.

              Towels really could be better. Food could be better also. Two days cleaning in the room was made in some strange time.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              This Hotel is perfect in every way, the rooms are superb, the quality of food very high, its extremely clean, the decor throughout is of very high standard and there are many quiet areas just to loose yourself in for how every long you want. Local Taxis and buses are very easy and the views from the balconies are beautiful. Fantastic Value. I will be back soon.10 out of 10.

            • Couple
              7.4

              I loved the breakfast..just great!

              I hated the fact that there was nobody at the pool to control the noise..we wanted to rest and had a group of 6 or 7 kids splashing us and running and crying and yelling all day

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              All is fine without any problems. Attentive staff, great location, beautiful hotel.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The gorgeous location of the hotel. THe hotel layout is excellent all very clean.

              The only thing I didnt like was the bathroom did not have an extractor fan and the shower cubicle was a little dark.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              The staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful when dealing with us...very happy with our stay.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Price was good-room was great-breakfast superb-staff very efficient and friendly -clean-comfortable-overall excellent stay.

              Our room was furthest from all facilities and on the main highway so traffic noise and a hike to restaurant,reception ect. However this was the only downside and we soon adjusted given everythingelse was excelent.It was a great surprize to find a gift of wine in the room on my wife birthday How did you know? The trip was to celebrate this but we had not mentioned it at all. Anyway many thanks.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              It was just really all over very pleasant hotel.

            • Couple
              8.2

              The location of this hotel is excellent (the bigest beach on the island is about 10 minutes walking). The rooms are clean and spacious. This is my second time that I spend a part of the holiday in this hotel.

              The output of the air condition was very dirty. They should clean it every few months.
