A barman was extremely rude at outside pool bar He never smiled and made us feel uncomfortable in fact most of the staff at this hotel was rude and made us feel very uncomfortable. I would not recommend this hotel unless you just want to keep quiet and do not look as if your having a good time! Horrible apart from the weather

In short we had a nice stay but not nice enough to recommend this hotel and wouldn't return but have outlined the good/bad points below. GOOD POINTS: - Lovely pool with plenty of sun-loungers, we never struggled to find a spot. We did find the pool cold but we didn't mind this as you got used to it. We liked the fact there was no music during the day as it was nice and relaxing - Our room was great, we had a double room with a limited sea view which was nice and spacious. Plenty of room to hang your clothes and store your belongings. We had a walk in shower which was lovely. The cleaners did a fab job of making the beds and refreshing with new towels and water each day - Perfect location, equidistant between Vilamoura and Albufeira old town and the taxis were very quick to arrive to reception. The walk down to the beach wasn't easy (and pretty dangerous) but once you got there it was great. One day walking down a step actually fell through beneath us - luckily we were OK but was a close shave - The restaurant and bar staff were always friendly and efficient, they did a great job all week - We generally enjoyed the entertainment each evening which mainly consisted of singers although it seemed like they all had the same song lists so we kept getting a sense of deja vu! BAD POINTS - The food really wasn't up to 4* standard and let's the hotel down massively, it became very samey each day and the meat and fish were almost always over-cooked and dry. We're not fussy at all and love trying new foods when on holiday but to our surprise there were often nights we had to resort to the pizza and pasta bar as the main spread was so unappealing. We found it really odd that the new salads each day were served in tiny bowls with only a tablespoon of food in them, just felt quite unnecessary - The atmosphere in the restaurant was a bit like a canteen as all you could hear was cutlery and plates, would be nice to consider playing some music to imrpove the ambiance - In the restaurant the plates were cold and wet every day, we had to dry them with our clothes before we could serve ourselves and by the time we arrived to our table outside the food was cold. There were often occasions where the plates were also still dirty which was pretty poor - The pool bar was underwhelming and nothing they had to offer food wise took our fancy - We found a couple of the reception staff (namely two male employees) very rude and unhelpful. When we tried to check in they said our room wasn't ready which was totally fine but said they 'had no idea' when it would be which wasn't a great start to the trip. When it was ready they handed over the key but didn't offer any direction which we found odd. They also regularly referred to me as 'she' to my boyfriend when I was standing there and did not respond well to me asking any questions which was uncomfortable

It’s a very nice hotel, clean and friendly staff. The Covid rules are rightly tight but efficient. The rooms are large enough and the sea views make balcony sitting a pleasant experience. The only downers are the food, while being well cooked, can be a little repetitive day after day. The swimming pool is a tad on the cold side when you first get in. Access to the beach is mountain goat territory via some wooden steps (many wooden steps actually!) An enjoyable stay

If you’re into massive hotels, then this could be for you. The hotel was clean and spotless, most of the hotel staff were nice, friendly and attentive. Some of the reception staff were not so great and on occasion we found them a bit standoffish, that said that was only about 2 out of 6 of the reception staff. In particular the guy that welcomed us on our first night wasn’t too familiar with the travel rules and tried to insist that we needed proof of negative tests on arrival. This was incorrect at the time. We didn’t go all inclusive but tried the buffet on a couple of occasions, good variety but we couldn’t have it everyday. Breakfast was standard, shame there were no avocados, we could have done with seeing more hash browns and better coffee! The lunchtime selection at the pool bar was pretty poor or maybe not to our taste. The BBQ in Friday was surprisingly very good and exceeded expectations, very good value for the price though the fish skewers was overcooked but all in all pretty decent. Prices were generally as you would expect at this sort of place €4 for a pint of beer, the service staff were very good and friendly. The booking system for stuff in general was pretty flawed. So a bit of work required around that. Indoor pool and sauna were a dream! Hardly ever used by the rest of the guest and always very clean. The mattress was a little firm but not unbearable. With three amazing beaches within a 10 min walk, all in all, great service, good hotel and a very enjoyable stay.
