The location is fantastic at the most interesting end of the Tres Irmaos Beach and surrounded by some great restaurant options. Loved the options to partake in free classes run by the hotel and using the spa. Breakfast was a particular highlight of our stay.
Fantastic location, staff very professional and extremely kind and a very good breakfast
no slippers included in the room
I enjoyed easy access to the pool area. The views of the sea. The warm reception in the dining room for dinner and breakfast. The hotel enviornment felt very safe.
Noise permeating from early morning risers as the wheels of suitacases could be heard. The piano for breakfast broke the peace of the morning. I would have liked a receipt for my food and drink also for my records. The airconditioning was not very efficient. The shower in my room was dissapointing and the shower curtain allowed the water to wet the floor. T.V reception was not great. I don't agree with it's five star rating, perhaps four.
It is definitely not a 5 star hotel but certainly charges 5 star prices. As a minimum in a 5 star hotel you expect a porter to collect your bags from the car. this never happened upon arrival or departure from the hotel. Also a 5 star hotel should be offering refreshments around the pool to guests, not have them have to go to the main bar and wait to be served.
We liked the location and the position of the hotel above the best under developed beach on the Algarve and the ability to acess the beach easily.
The gymnasium facility was very basic and dated for a hotel of this star rating. It needs to be updated urgently.
The beach, the breakfast and the friendly staff
Pillows were not very comfortable and the TV had poor reception.
The weather was amazing every day. The staff we very helpful. The hotel was close to a town which provided more options for food and drink.
The guests were not the most friendly. Everyone kept to themselves. Did not like the idea of people reserving sunbeds by just placing a towel on it early in the morning and then not showing up until the middle of the afternoon. Very selfish.
The rooms have a lot of space. You can have breakfast and dinner outside with view on the swimming pool and the sea. The rooms were very good constructed - they stay cool during the day (even without a need to use the airconditioning).
Only the hotel management, the staff at the reception and the higher staff in the restaurant understand English or French (few). The other staff (cleaning, restaurant, ...) only speaks Portugese. Some of the staff in the restaurant for breakfast isn't professional (for example the preparation of eggs). The swimming hasn't got a good water circulation system. The prices of consumation at the pool are too high (> 3 EUR for a bottle of mineral wather). Due to the fact that the hotel is situated in a beautiful green area, you need to walk a long time before you find a shop or supermarket. When you compare the hotel with other beach destionations like Gran Canaria for exemple, a lot of luxury in the hotel is rather common on other destinations or has a better price/quality (the Portugese Algarve region is in general expensive). The hotel is also used on one way or another for the selling of time sharing products.
Great hotel, wonderful location and beach. Very relaxing.. Towels changed every morning and evening..
Nothing at all..
The view was wonderful. staff gets annoyed if people want to contact other people staying at your sister hotels.
Not clear on what is included with room.
