Spent a week here with my partner and loved the hotel. We were fortunate with great weather in early March (early 20s) so happy just to lounge around the nice (heated) outdoor pool and beach. Beautiful setting, with lovely beach. Very good helpful staff.

We booked this hotel for a four night break. We had read positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Check in was fine, we were given hotel and resort information. We had booked a sea view room. This was on the third floor so we had good views. Breakfast was very good lots of choice from fresh fruit to a full cooked breakfast or freshly made omelettes. Things that weren't too good no tea & coffee making facilities in our room, which we kind of expect in five star hotels. The only available pool was the spa pool at 20 Euros each per use. Hence our swimming kit stayed in our cases. To finish on a positive all the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. Especially the the lady on reception who helped us with bus timetables for Silves and Villamoura. All in all a pleasant stay at this hotel.

On the outskirts of the town located in a gated resort this hotel easily meets all the criteria for a five star rating but wears them very lightly.Right on the beach, with welcoming staff, great food and generously proportioned rooms all combine to create a perfect environment in which to relax and unwind.Our room on the ground floor had an ocean view and really ticked all the boxes and then some. Spa facilities are top class and there is a courtesy bus into town for those who can drag themselves away.Attention to detail is evident everywhere, even the guitar player in the lobby is seriously good.Highly recommended.
