Good but not 5 star
Average check in. Amazing room. Expect heated pool for 5 star but freezing. No pool bar. Food and drink, very good.

Do not pay to stay!
I was excited about staying at this hotel given my previous experiences with all inclusives. First off, the hotel is not a 5 star, more like a 3. They overcharge the guests and provide extremely poor quality food and service. I would never go back there nor recommend this horrible experience to anyone.

Stay somewhere else
We arrived at lunchtime and went to the restaurant. It was noisy and full off families with young children - it was like eating in a kinder garden. The food and wine was very low quality and even though we had paid for full board we ate out for every meal. The room was nice but bare and no tea and coffee available without room service which was very expensive. Not even a box of tissues in the bathroom. We could not wait to leave. This is not a place for couples who like quiet surroundings, good food and wine - go somewhere else.

The best in the Algarve.
The San Rafael Atlantique was outstanding in every way. The staff were friendly, the hotel was spotless, the room was outstanding and the food was the best buffet I have eaten in an all inclusive. It was so good I tried to book again for the end of March but it is only it’s sister hotel Sao Rafael Suites which is doing all inclusive from the beginning of March. The Atlantique will do full board.
