room and general layout of hotel was excellent.
was a bit noisy at night time, reception staff weren't very helpful.
The room that I had was excellent.
Pool area is great and very friendly staff
We had very small rooms with no balconys. All the other rooms were much larger with balconys, we asked for an upgrade and offered to pay extra, but the hotel staff said all the rooms were full, this was not peak season and we saw many empty rooms.The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful. Check your booking or they will give these small rooms with a tiny window like a cell. Not nice!!!!
Excellent loction in Albufeira, very satisfying "included" hot breakfast and use of free van-service into old town.
The breakfast is very good and the staff are very nice and helpful....
It was not a 4 star hotel it needs a bit of work (which seemed to be happening). this is our groups 2nd year staying there and it is fine, cheap and cheerful in a good location
