This hotel is a great base from which to explore the Algarve. January is a quiet month, with many restaurants in every resort closed, but the Algarve has been warm and sunny, ideal for walking and visiting the natural attractions and golf courses ! With an empty five mile beach right outside, the hotel was a fantastic place to stay....

We booked for 2 nights as we were visiting some old neighbours who live close by. Fabulous views from the bar, lovely views from our balcony.Huge room, clean, tea & coffee facilities. The hotel is in an ideal location right in the beach but close to the town.We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food.

Stayed here for the New Year. The hotel enjoys a stunning location right on the beach and it is well worth paying extra for a sea view and allows you to enjoy morning and afternoon sun on your balcony. The heated outside pool and sun beds are well protected from the prevailing wind. Breakfast buffet was good and the evening...

Spent a week here in November. The hotel is in a fantastic location - right on the beach. The upgrade to a sea view room is well worth the money. The room are well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. The only downside of the room was that the bathroom and balcony were next to each...

Hotel is situated on the beautiful beach in Armacao de Pera and would recommend booking a sea view room as it is a stunning view well worth every penny.
