The staff could not be any nicer, it was well off season so very quiet. The villas were great, nice and clean, and had a south facing private patio so could sun yourself all day. Only downside was distance from night life, but if your looking for nothing but sun, good restaurant at night. Can't recommend enough.

Room was very nice(with hot tub on terrace)although facilities require upgrading some rust on bath etc but overall very satisfied. Must say staff were great and helpful. Cannot recommend restaurant enough family run with menu of the day at 8.5 Euros with 3 courses and superb fish. We ate there every evening wine was also good value, tried the steak...

We needed a sports bar for the champions league. Someone suggested here. It is what it is. But you had to walk through the restaurant to get to the sports bar. Not my cup of tea. Cheaper beer than our hotel on the plus side. As a resort I don't know. !!

Nice large terrace but could have done with sun beds which you could hire but 5euros a day meaning if there was 4 of you it would be 140 euros for the week ( rather expensive I thought) nice pool area and gardens well...

If you're looking for a resort close to the hustle and bustle of Albufeira new or old town, then this isn't for you. It's situated a 20-30 minute walk from the Marina (with kids) and a further 15 into the old town. However, if it's a beach you're after then there are a couple within a short walk and they...

About 3 miles from nearest coastal town (Carvoeiro). Located in small modern village with a couple of eating places and a good bar. A good place from which to explore the area from Faro to Atlantic coast

Spent 2 weeks here in August with family. Really lovely with excellent facilities & friendly staff. Onsite restaurant is really good & great value . It's a little too far from Albuferia to walk but not too expensive in a taxi. Highly recommended for families
