Certificate of Excellence
The hotel stands overlooking Praia da Falesia in the charming town of Olhos de Agua, close to Albufeira in the Algarve. Surrounded by abundant green areas, the hotel enjoys direct access to the sea and the exceptional 8km long beach which is washed by the clear, calm waters of the Algarve sea. After a refreshing drink at the waters edge, a reviving plunge in one of the pools, a trip to the beach, a game of tennis or an invigorating massage, sit back and enjoy one of the Algarves most beautiful views from one of the hotel's restaurants. Make the most of your holidays to relax.

Just got back from a short break to this hotel. The hotel is lovely and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless and cleaned every day and the bed so comfy. We were fortunate to have a sea view which was lovely to wake up to short walk to the beach.
