8/10 Very good

Good Hotel
Hotel is in a good quiet location close to Carvoeiro and other beach attractions in the area. Easy parking and in good conditions althought some areas would need renovations. Pool is nice and kept clean. Superior room was recently renovated and of a good size with balcony/ side seaview. Restaurant is probably the area that would benefit of some improvements on quality and variety at breakfast and dinner.

Wonderful hotel with great staff
My family loved our stay. My room was big with a cute little porch with beatiful garden views and a nice bath. Breakfast was always excellent with a great selection of Portuguese pastries and cheese. We had breakfast on the outside tables with wonderful views of nature and surrounded by little cute birds. The swimming pools are so inviting and the indoor pool and the jacuzzi is wonderful for people who visited when the whether is still too cold for outside pool or beaches, like us. My only complaint about the indoor pool is that it closes too early, so we didn't have time to enjoy it as we were out sightseeing the Algarve, and about the lack of wall sockets in our room. And last but not least, we so loved the view of the Centeanes beach from the top of a cliff just in front of the hotel! We've got nice pictures of the landscape from there and went down the path on the cliff and had a drink on the bar by the beach (even my 70-year-old father-in-law was able to do that, but be careful! Go by the road if you're not up for an adventure!). Oh, I nearly forgot to say how we enjoyed sunbathing around the pool or the big garden close to the cliffs and the sangria from the bar(had me hooked on that). They also offer massages we couldn't have because they were fully booked already, so book early if you want it! Price was great for all we were offered. All the staff was very friendly. We went to Carvoeiro city centre by foot and it took us less than 20 minutes walking lazily.

Comfortable stay
We chose the hotel as it is situated at a very nice beach (walking distance). There was also an access to a nice viewing area of the the beach above a cliff. That was a bonus. The room was clean. The wifi was not reaching our room so that was a bummer. The breakfast buffet was excellent - there were ample choices.

Beautiful hotel near the beach along the Algarve cliffs. Fantastic service and they even delivered a complimentary chocolate cake for my birthday. It was in the perfect location between the Algar Seco and the Benagil cave.

We recommend this hotel as it was excellent value. It is well located for both the beach and the town and it had a great pool and other facilities. Some of the ameneties and room features are older than you might expect but overall it was very clean and bright.
