This is the friendliest hotel I've ever been to, met some really wonderful friends here. The hotel room was very smelly (toilet drainage) so after a complaint they did move us a couple of doors down without fuss. The rooms were spacious and I cooked there most nights. The weather was perfect and the gardens around the hotel are beautifully...

Amazing value, clean rooms and grounds and very friendly and helpful staff. Quite remote location and not much to do in the evenings so maybe better suited to older couples and definitely young family's that are happy to stay by the pool all day. Free minibus to the beach is a bonus, although again it's quite quiet there. There is...

Although you would benefit from the hire of a car (although I would advise to check out ALL monies involved), this was a lovely holiday complex. Not huge it still had two pools, one of them bar side. Also tennis courts. The bar served the food deemed popular with Brits and Irish. My husband was in foodie heaven with the...

We visited Portugal for the first time. Found this little gem of the algarve. The rooms are basic, but good enough for what you want. In the room you only get a kettle, two rings and a fridge. Beds are really comfortable, with extra blankets for the colder nights. Entertainment most nights in the bar, which has 3 big screens...

Me and my partner went here for 3 days, to suprise our friends who had been brought the holiday as a present. Do not be put off by the photos or even when driving upto the building. Once inside it is amazing some of the rooms are a little small, but it is just somewhere to put your head down...

Nice big clean apartment, could hear every word of next doors conversations, but they were out a lot and quiet, we stayed with our 3 year old. Staff were very friendly to us, the man who picked us up from the airport was lovely and went out of his way to help us. Bit annoying you have to hire everything...
