My sister and I decided to have a weekend away to Portugal and after finding cheap flights to Faro we arrived late on a Friday evening. We only stayed for 3 hits- but felt like we had been there a week! The hotels location is great for a late flight into Faro as it was only a 25min drive from...

We really weren't here long enough to assess the hotel fully - we didn't use the pool, the spa or the bar - but the staff were really courteous and gave a warm welcome, the room was spacious and had a great little balcony overlooking the gardens (pool view ones are available). Perhaps showing its age a tad in places....

We booked two rooms for one week through Expedia and paid in advance with a no cancellation policy. On arrival we were informed our booking had been cancelled by the hotel or rather we could stay for four nights and then transfer to a sister hotel in Quinta da lago. The hotel had apparently cancelled our rooms in favour of...

Dear Guest, Sorry for your less positive experience in our hotel upon arrivall.

Just the perfect place in the Algarve to enjoy a relaxing break. I usually stay with my family, but this time had a week in the sun with a friend. As soon as you walk through the reception you are greeted by a friendly reception. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The staff and hotel standards are high...

We had booked this hotel for a special birthday break, and wanted to be spoiled, to get away from the hurly burly of our work, and relax in 5* luxury. Sadly, we soon discovered that this is not a true 5* hotel, and not sure where it got that rating from. As many people have said, the staff are lovely,...
