We needed a sports bar for the champions league. Someone suggested here.
It is what it is. But you had to walk through the restaurant to get to the sports bar.
Not my cup of tea. Cheaper beer than our hotel on the plus side.
As a resort I don't know. !!

we stayed here and enjoyed the villa ,really good sized living accommodation but bedrooms very small.
Nice large terrace but could have done with sun beds which you could hire but 5euros a day meaning if there was 4 of you it would be 140 euros for the week ( rather expensive I thought)
nice pool area and gardens well maintained
the restaurant was very good ,staff and meals excellent
I think you really need a hire car here if you are not super fit .

If you're looking for a resort close to the hustle and bustle of Albufeira new or old town, then this isn't for you. It's situated a 20-30 minute walk from the Marina (with kids) and a further 15 into the old town. However, if it's a beach you're after then there are a couple within a short walk and they are beautiful. There were 7 of us, 2 families in 2 villas and a taxi to old town would cost €11 plus tip each way, its €7 for a normal taxi.
The resort itself is clean & maintained very well although the villa did seem dated. We had a spacious 2 bed villa which was suitable to our needs. It was cleaned and towels changed twice in the week we stayed. The pool area is lovely and despite it being pretty cold, the kids used it well.
The bar area is small but adequate and the prices were typical of the area. We used the restaurant a few times, breakfast, lunch & dinner and found the food very nice indeed and reasonably priced. Paolo was also very pleasant and every member of staff went out of their way to be friendly and polite to all of us.
The mini market on site is ok, there's a slightly bigger one just a short walk away.
If going with kids then stock up on €1 coins for the pool table or air hockey!
Overall we were happy with our stay here and would definitely consider returning but maybe in a warmer month!

About 3 miles from nearest coastal town (Carvoeiro). Located in small modern village with a couple of eating places and a good bar. A good place from which to explore the area from Faro to Atlantic coast

Room Tip: If you want a lot of sun, ask upfront. Some rooms are completly in the shade
