We took the 2 hour private boat tour through dive spot. Highly recommend it! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, offered us snacks and drinks. Dont miss out on this opportunity to see Algarve from the sea. The entire hotel staff was friendly and took excellent care of us.

Wonderful location and wonderful staff- willing to help all the time. The property is beautiful and the beach is exceptional. Breakfast buffet is the best in Portugal. However, the property is older and needs remodel.

Great hotel - poor area
The hotel is very good but the area Almacao de Pêra is dreadful. So you’re constrained to eating in the hotel and another nearby, both excellent but not the sense of local bars and restaurants in a lovely town.
