This resort is not suited to families really. A lot of young crowds and hens/ stags and is perfectly situated for this. There was a large group of us (23 in total) and we were kind of scattered around the place. The rooms in the blocks are perfect. However I had a villa and it was lovely but basic and...

This hotel is not families or couples looking for a quiet holiday. It's full of hens and stags and ideal for this. The rooms are basic with horrible pillows. We ran out of hot water. The staff were lovely I would come back for a girly trip.

Clean but basic rooms, cracking location for the "strip". Avoid hotel if you want a quiet holiday not suitable for family's or couples. Fab if you are hen/stag/birthdays or young and lively. All in all no complaints, we went for a 40th birthday lively holiday and that's exactly what we got, would return to this hotel if going for this...

I am surprised at the amount of negative reviews for this place, we booked this last minute, reading the views and the price I was expecting the worse but I couldn't be more surprised. We have a lovely villa near the pool and pool bar. The bar closes early around 6pm but the strip full of bars is only outside...

Just been here for my friends hen do, enjoyed ourselves!! Heard a few mixed reviews but it's fine! We had no bad experiences of being broken Into like the reviews say and if anyone is concerned about valuables there are safety deposit boxes provided in the reception area. Very basic but place ideally for a good night in the strip,...

Very basic rooms and not that clean. Pool area and outside bar were absolutely fine. Do not bring your children here, it's predominantly stags and hens, can get loud! Super close to the strip if that's the sort of holiday you want. Staff were friendly and checking in and out was easy but this place could definitely do with a...

This is the kind of place to stay if you want to be woken up in the middle of the night by gunfire. During middle of our stay apparently there was an attempted break in on a couple of apartments, the Portuguese police were called and they started firing a gun in the middle of the complex - we saw...

If you don't want any sleep for the duration of your stay then this is the place to come! Apart from the concrete bed base with a mattress (not as uncomfortable as it sounds), the God awful pillows which offer no neck support whatsoever, and there noise of drunken blokes returning all through the night, you have to also contend...
