Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sad that hotels now allows large unruly groups and families who spoil the outside pool area - dangerous swimming pool practice allowed also. It totally spoilt things for many guests.People were noisy and staff simply ignored things - beer drinking in the pool like an Ibiza bar!

Have stayed with this hotel before in apartments. Very safe & secured area. Only few minutes walk to new town but spent most our time in old town, easy to grab a taxi out on the street. Also a shuttle bus to both areas. Apartments are quite dated but spotlessly cleaned & basically everything you need. Cleaning service available every day. Great wifi. Hotel is fab, staff were nothing short of excellent. Beach is beautiful & hotel supplies beach towels. Lots of areas to dine within hotel grounds. Would highly rate this hotel/apartments & will happily return again.

We really needed a place to rest and recharge and this resort was just perfect. Despite the daily weddings it was very quiet. Lots of little kids at the pool so a real family atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, lots of fruit, omelets, fresh orange juice, granola, strong coffee and nice bread. The AC in the room was a bit tricky but if you set it for 17 it was decent. The beach was gorgeous and lots of activities, if you want. All the staff were very friendly. The hotel was very, very clean. The spa offered limited services but the massage was excellent. Free parking, English language tv and plenty of room at the pool.

Travelled with our 3.5 month old to this hotel for a one week stay. Stayed in room 206, bed was huge and comfy, nespresso coffee machine in room but only drew espresso sized shots, water replenished daily and a plate of fruit in the room. The view not great on the balcony (car park). The hotel is beautiful, and has some lovely bars and restaurants but v expensive for what you get. For example, €9 for nachos at the pool which was a small bowl of salted tortilla chips and two tiny dips! Steak restaurant had lovely views but very pricey for what you got. The grounds were not pram friendly due to the cobble style roads and pavement, our wheels are squeeking after a week on it. The hotel itself seemed family friendly, lots of other families around. Passed entertainers on two nights but seemed v subdued, not v lively for kids. Hotel is only 15 min walk to albufeira strip and 10 mins to smaller quite strip of bar and restaurants, free shuttle is great too.

The hotel lobby looks so good and had a lovely smell. The view is just fantastic as well as the beach and the outside area. Three small pools and free sun beds by the pool, which is nice. Very few restaurants, didn’t have a chance to taste the sushi as it was always closed for private events. Everything is clean, can’t complain. However, there is a side which disappointed me. The rooms definitely don’t look like 5* hotel rooms. On the first night around 4-5am our neighbours were slamming the door, laughing, talking so loud and playing music for a few hours. Next day I went to the lobby to make a complaint and the staff told me next time if it happens to call number 9 on the phone and security will come. Next day it happened again and I did as I was told. The receptionist said he is sorry for that but he can’t do much, the only thing he can do is to come and check the “ level of the noise”. For the rest of the week we had to sleep with earplugs.. which is not okay, I have paid for the service and the comfort, which was not provided. I have stayed in 5* hotel in different countries and never had to face such a horrible service. I just can’t think what would I do if I would come here with small kids and they wouldn’t be able to sleep?! Also, the main bed is okay but if you are staying in a self catering rooms and planning on coming here with more than 2 people coach is super uncomfortable. I am definitely not coming back and I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to someone I know.

I don't like giving a bad review but because this is a five star hotel and is quite expensive I don't feel it lived up to my expectations. I booked an apartment that sleeps five, there were two chairs on the balcony we asked for a third , on the second day we asked again and were told they already had that request but we never got the third chair! We waited so long for service in the Steakhouse that my sister approached the bar to order a drink while we were waiting to dine ! We watched as the servers went slowly about their business but no sign of our order so we just left and went to an Italian restaurant across from the hotel where we had beautiful food and gin that tasted like gin! At the poolside bar we ordered two ice creams and water and when we queried the price it was reduced by almost three euro! None of these things are major but they are annoying! However, the location, the view and most of the staff make up for it , an elderly friend with mobility issues was looked after with kindness and caring by the buggy drivers especially Marco and George! if you want a deep tissue massage Felipe is wonderful
