Hotel was in great location, room was of a good standard and had a lovely view. Reception staff were very helpful, engaging and welcoming on arrival and the bar and pool area/Jacuzzi areas lovely and relaxing. The food was of a high quality and lots to choose from. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to family and...

We had been let down with our Teletext holiday so booked last minute whilst in Portugal. Excellent hotel with friendly staff and great location. Our suite overlooked the pool and marina and was clean and practical with great noise cancelling windows and blackout curtains. Very few kids as primarily a hotel used by golfers but kids club was great and...

Good quality, good value, very central location, and was perfectly adequate for our golfing accommodation. The breakfast buffet was fully stocked with a good variety of food and very enjoyable. The toaster was slow and the coffee machine kept breaking down but on the plus side the fried eggs were delicious.

We booked last minute for a short Easter Break in the sun. The location to the Marina and beach was the main attraction and this did not let us down. We had a sea view room for 2 adults and 12 year old. It was on a corner, which made the room smaller, we had to juggle some of the...

Disappointed with this hotel, room not cleaned on second day so had to request clean towels when returning to hotel after a day out, then no toilet paper on returning after evening meal, both were brought within 20 minutes but still not good enough for hotel rating.

For the price, this place seems good, but I guess I was hoping for more. It has free parking that I found fairly easy and the staff was friendly but the place was just a little dirty and outdated.

This hotel is a typical Portuguese 4 star hotel - it does what it says on the tin but nothing more. We had a four night stay which was marred by the noise eminating from the construction site at the Tivoii Hotel on the marina - the sound of the power hammer as an alarm call at 0630 and 0700...
