Not our usual choice of destination for a holiday, but we were travelling with children and grandchildren for a half term break and thought this would give all the children the chance to find their own interests and activities and all the adults to enjoy some time for themselves. After a certain amount of misgiving, It turned out to be... More

We stayed here half term week in October. We upgraded the room and had a fabulous big balcony which over looked the pool. On arrival we were greeted with drinks and check in was quick and efficient.

Situated across the road, 5-10 minute walk, from a superb 9 hole golf course, and Salgados golf course, 18 hole, a 10-15 taxi ride away was our first consideration in booking in the Algarve. Staying in a First floor sea-view spacious apartment, over looking palm tree lined pool with an All inclusive package was a bonus. With six pools to... More

(3 adults & 2 kids) What a brilliant holiday and all thanks to the wonderful staff at this hotel. I always take into consideration price paid and value for money when leaving a review and this resort doesn't carry the hefty price tag of some of the other holiday villages... it feels more like 2 separate apartment hotels joined together...
