5 out of 5
Sehr aufmerksame und freundliche Mitarbeiter, das Essen im à la Carte Restaurant war sehr gut und die Paarmassage hat ein super Preis-leistungsverhältnis! Das zimmer war sehr sauber, ruhig und mit Meerblick, vom Hotel haben die Gäste einen privaten Holzsteg bis zum nah gelegenen Strand und die 3 verschiedenen runden Pools inmitten von Palmen sind sehr einladend! Es ist ausserhalb der Stadt Albufeira, es gibt aber ein regelmässigen Shuttleservice welcher kostenlos ist! Am Hafen, 30 Gehminuten entfernt, kann man diverse Bootrips buchen.
