Just 100m from the beach, with bars and restaurants all around. What more could you ask for??? Oh, and the Hotel and service provided was excellent. And for once the beds were fantastic. I don't sleep well at home but these were the best. Our party of 32 people all agreed on that.

Clean and tidy hotel with spacious rooms and a great view over the harbour from the large balconies. Comfortable beds, maid service every day, and a very good buffet breakfast make this hotel an excellent choice when staying in Vilamoura. We stayed late November 2016 and the hotel was nice and quiet (which we prefer).
