    Superb

    A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The reception and service was excellent. The location and surroundings to the appartments was also excellent. In particular the grounds to the hotel were extremely well kept. Would not hesitate to reccomend these appartments to friends.

    Very good

    Location was perfect for what we wanted. No need to use taxis at all.

    Not for families at all as the pool is too deep with no LIFEGUARD at all. Its more for lively teenagers who take over the pool with rough play. Sheets and towels need to be changed a lot sooner than towels 4th day sheets 8th day.

    Very good

    Very good value, Rooms are lovely, pool area clean.

    Apart from the great night porter, staff seemed jaded, tired and unfriendly, as if it was the end of a very busy season, but its only the start....really we were not made feel welcome and our family felt we were in the way! Not a good feeling when you are your holidays.

    Very good

    Studio was a great, bigger then any previous studio I stayed in.

    Hotel did not change the towels enough, once every four days is very poor service

    Fabulous

    We loved the fact that the hotel was so central.It was very near restaurants and bars and had a supermarket on the corner.It was also very near the Strip ,a big shopping area with bars and restaurants and was just a short journey by train to the old town.We also loved the fact that it was within easy walking distance to the beach.A Word of caution though, the old town is a little more expensive than the area around the hotel or the Strip.

    There was entertainment there some nights but it would be great if it was provided everynight !

    Very good

    Central location, close to beach, shopping and nightlife. Bus stop very close.

    Reception staff were not helpful. They were ignorant and when we asked about loclal shopping they said there was none. In fact the biggest shopping centre in albufeira was five minutes away by taxi and there was another shopping centre within walking distance.

    Location is good and pool big but needed to be cleaned more. Nice place for money paid.

    Hotel charged for bus from airport even though bus never turned up. No doulbe beds, two singles pushed together. Pool should be kept cleaner.

    Good pool facilities and its location was near to everything - cafes, bars etc

    Towels could have done with changing more frequently however I understand that this is for environmental reasons
