          Good afternoon, We (2) are thinking of booking to come to the Baia Cristal hotel in February 2018 for a two week plus one free. As I am partially disabled and mostly have to use a small electric mobility scooter to get around will the hotel be suitable for me, I. E getting into the hotel. I am able to walk short distances with the aid of two walking sticks. Thank you

          There are a lot of different levels and also it is quite a walk down a hill into Carvoeiro even though there are shuttle buses but not that frequent.
