    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Our family of four stayed in a lovely villa with a small pool -- and had a great time. The bus service around the community is useful and the beaches are just beautiful. Our only complaint was around customer service with the staff - they promised to help us with a sea cruise and dropped the ball, and gave us some incorrect information about beach towels. Nothing insurmountable, but a little disappointing. All in all though, we highly recommend this as a place to unwind and enjoy the Algarve.

      Beautiful European resort with many amenities Americans will enjoy. Golf is spectacular, a variety of good restaurants, the apartments are lovely and the spa is great. Even though it was too cold to enjoy the beach during our stay, we had a wonderful vacation here!

      Nice accommodation but...

      All was fine except the daily cleaning service... The floor was not cleaned properly during our 5 nights stay, namely in the bath rooms.

      Great beach, ok service and NO Internet!

      First of all...property is great and I stayed at a standard apartment. Furnishings are fine though not luxurious and the hotel is located on an amazing beach with a great pool. Shockingly there was no internet available at my room and while reception said the reservation makes note that "some rooms do not have internet" I went back and checked and it stated "Wireless Internet access (surcharge) keeps you connected, and the 37-cm LCD TV offers cable channels"....There also wasn't a wine bottle opener in room and in calling concierge they said that they could help me the next day as they didn't have anything there....I told them I would show up and they should figure it out...now "showing up" involves a 5 minute drive....I said that I was used to better service where things get solved...like perhaps taking a wine bottle opener from an empty room since the resort was not full at the time. service at one restaurant was poor while the pizza restaurant was excellent...Food is pricey with Italian place being best option....Overall this could be an excellent place but comparing to resorts in places like Cabo, this property doesn't really stack up.

      What more can you ask for?

      Beautiful and modern apartment. Well stocked kitchen, with outside barbecue next to the swimming pool. Rooms were comfortable sizes with all en-suites. Daily services of the apartment were very good and the cleaning ladies were friendly . Although we had a rental car, the 24 Hour shuttle service was really convenient to take one group to the beach, whilst the other were driving elsewhere.

      Nice resort for a quiet getaway

      Great customer service with very nice facilities. Allot less people than Albuferia. We didn't have to go too far since there are plenty of activities and resturants right in the resort itself. Really nice beach and tennis courts and a really good strip club down the block if your into that sort of thing.

      A very modernised resort, amazing apartment and poolside. The free shuttle service was amazing as we were quite a walk away from the beach. Reception staff very helpful.
