Superb locale and orientation with a southward view over the coast, the cities of Portimnão and Lagos, the estuary of the Arade and the Ria de Alvor. Cozy atmosphere of the common spaces. Quality well under what is expected from a 4 star Inn. Poor hygiene on room and toilet. Air conditioning unable to heat up the room, telephone did not work. No tv or mini bar in the room. No hot water in the shower in the morning (unacceptable!). Satellite tv reception in the common room recently disconnected. You can clearly see this inn has entered a decayment cycle and needs urgent renovation.
The view, value. Very basic, no TV in the room.
The food at the restaurant and the friendly staff. Large clean bathroom. View. The pool could have had more sun loungers for guests.
I actually liked the slightly tired building, not too overpowering and easy to relax in.The staff were friendly and very helpful. The views and environs were stunning, and the restaurant only 500m away was briliiant. The pool was great [if you skim it first]. The outside furniture needs to be renewed, including pool furniture.
Though being pretty far away from civilization (40km seem like 120km in those roads), the location is pretty spectacular, and the view from the room is amazing. The rooms are spacious and clean, and breakfast is above average in the area.
Location, size and layout of room, attention of staff Poor quality breakfasts compared to other similar hotels, limited choice in evening menu. Saved by several good local restaurants. Car essential.
Dont expect a classic 4 stars hotel. But if you are in the area certainly a good choice and good value. Its a quite place with nice view of the valley from every room and a swimming pool on the roof ok to relax a bit. Above all the owner is a great character, very busy (sometime looks frustrated how busy he is!) and very friendly. He also runs the restaurant opposit to the hotel that gets packed up over lunch time. The entire place is on sale for 2M. I am sure the owner will make that point!
The hotel was located in a very quiet area and quiet close to a selection of restraurants. Parking spaces were limited and this could cause a problem at busy times. There was no food available on the evenings which was a bit inconvenient if you arrived in the evening.
The view is absolutely astonishing and the location is brilliant. Mountain in a very short reach to the sea, can easily benefit of both. It fits both summer and winter trip with quite some nice details and a cozy environment. The owner was especially attentive creating a good mood and allowing a better experience throughout all the stay. Option of a double bed (not twin) is missing in such a romantic inn the option should be available.
Staff were very nice, helpful & friendly, the Room was big and clean but the breakfast was for Germans....we dont eat cheese or ham that early and there were no cereals or fruit, the Bar was never open and the restaurant was never open only the one owned by the Hotel across the road which good and reasonable.....Pool was fine but all of the patio/poolside furniture was "tired" to put it mildly.....we enjoyed our stay and would probably go again but this Hotel whilst having imense potential needs some thoughtful investment. PJ & M B. Patio / Poolside furniture was older than me !
The word to discribe this hotel is pristine, everything was spot on, can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
The staff was simply amazing, we felt really welcome. The owners pay a lot of attention to small details. We will come back!
This place is delightful. The couple who run it, Margarite and Luis are simply the nicest couple you could find and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are simple but modern & comfy, the bathrooms spotless, the pool is great but best of all is the breakfast...worth coming just for that! A lovely place to spend a few nights while exploring the West Coast. Will definitely come back. There's a stunning, big sitting room with a roaring fire which is perfect for winter evenings. But in summer, as there's no bar/restaurant, they could do with an outside area where you can sit at night and have a few drinks (even if you bring your own). My only suggestion as otherwise this place is fantastic!
Located in a lovely, quiet valley. Nice, clean and spacious rooms. Big swimming pool. Great breakfast with lot of choice.
It was a very good experience. Excellent quality of the service: rooms, quality of the products at breakfast, well located deep in the country-side, but not far from the sea or a nearby village. Staff is extremely nice.
Great location, beautiful scenery, warm welcome, great breakfast, very nice pool, good room. It matched all that we were looking for.
The affection with which the hosts, Margarida and Luis pampered us. It may not be perceptible at first, but there is something there, an underlying cultural offer that is mirrored in the books, in the decoration, in the art, and that reflects a unique sensibility and philosophy of the life the hosts have lived so far. It is hard to find what else can you demand or expect from a rural tourism unit.
The owners are lovely and we spent time with time discussing this new exciting venture with them. We toured the extensive vegetable garden and were encouraged to bring the fruits with us when we departed. The breakfasts will become a legend where they really do go the extra mile and provide local cheese curd, green tomato jam, and huge glasses of freshly squeezed juices. The rooms which we stayed in were a bit small - we each had a suitcase and it felt cramped, but this was offset by the lovely linens on the beds and the stillness of the place.
beautiful place to stop in....real relax in the nature...service offered from owners is eccellent....great breakfast...who is in the area I suggest to visit...very cleaned and confortable...one of my best accomodations I've ever experienced...
Marguerita and Luis (and their staff) do all possible to make you feel very, very wellcome - you need something, you just had to ask, and they did all possible to please you there was nothing we did not like
Beautiful location for nature & mountain walks, accessible to west coast by car. Delicious breakfast, clean room & friendly helpful staff
The location is high up in the mountains, overlooking the tiny village of Nave Redonda. Beautiful location, stunning views, quiet and totally relaxing. The hotel itself is very small and intimate, the staff ensure you feel very welcome without being intrusive. And breakfast was lovely!
