Fantastic suites. Good all inclusive. Good shuttle service. The restaurant were very good. When they found out we were vegetarian they would ask us every morning what we'd like to eat. Nice of them. Their vegetarian lasagne was delicious. We will defo come back.

The hotel was very good, very friendly, helpful staff and good food available all day. The organisation of the golf transfers was faultless and the courses were all very different and enjoyable to play. Our only complaint is that half way through our break the hotel had lots of families with young children, many of which didn't seem to have...

The suites are very spacious and nicely decorated. (1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms and 1 living room with built in kitchenette). The food options at the all inclusive buffet were decent and average but not worth 5 stars. Location is nice, close walk to one of the best beaches in Portugal. I recommend to get a rental car so you can...

All foods in the central part only just warm. Hot food not very visible on the back wall.most guests didn't realise it was there. Mushrooms for breakfast still being served...
