Lovely hotel, great place to come on holiday, however in my opinion not 5 star. Room is comfortable, great big bed, great view. Nice breakfast, nice pool area and right on the beach. Things that disappoint are the hotel appears not to have been updated ie. some staining on room carpets, decking around pool area needing painted. The wifi is painfully slow and drops off continually no matter whereabouts in the hotel you are. The satellite TV channels are very limited so when I wanted to watch some Wimbledon tennis I was directed by hotel staff up to Filips Sports (decent, if not a little grubby, bar with friendly staff) bar 10 minutes walk away towards Albufeira "Strip" where the wifi was fast and I could watch Andy Murray on BBC2. When you stay in a 5 star hotel why should you have to seek out a sports bar?

A family of 7 stayed for a week returning June 30th. From flaking paint in the bathroom to cracks in the walls. I had two villas a 1 bedroom villa and a studio villa. On the steps outside going to the pool. There was a rusty nail in the path. Also on the path was a empty cigarette packet that I spotted on our arrival. And 7 days later it was still there. I didn't eat there but I did find the drinks over priced. It is in a great location just a 10min walk to shops and restaurants. But there was a wedding on ever day so you can't get to sit out on the balcony with the big luxurious sunbeds ( from the brochure ) now I stayed in 575 and 577. 575 had some cockroaches in the kitchen area cracks on the wall flakes of paint falling from the bathroom ceiling. Ants on the floor ( expected ) pool bar at the pool never opened at all. Even after being told it was opening on Thursday. It hadn't opened by the following Tuesday. The hotel part is nice but the apartments are far from being 5 star I've stayed in better 3 star hotels. Over priced for what your getting. But I did have a great holiday and staff are lovely.
