Apartment was really nice, spacious and super clear, we felt right at home from the moment we walked in. Staff are really friendly and nothing seems to be too much hassle. Restaurant is really good and breakfast was fantastic, lots to choose from, hot and cold and everything is super fresh. Nearby you have wonderful sights over the beautiful coastline and many secluded beaches to explore. we absolutely loved every moment of our stay and will definitely be back.

Superb Hotel, Excellent Location

Pros: Very well located, excellent restaurant and spa and superb suites.
Cons: Make the reception area more approachable and obvious. Put irons/ironing boards in the suites. Tea towels would be useful.
Overall a fantastic experience. Unfortunately arrived in the pouring rain and the suite we were given had a large pool of water from the front door to the kitchen. Evening reception staff were quite rude and condescending about this but finally gave us an alternative room. All other staff were really polite and helpful. After this small glitch we really enjoyed our stay. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was delicious. Had a couple of spa treatments - can definitely recommend the Stone Massage so relaxing! We also walked along the cliff top to Armacao de Pera (just over an hour) - taxied back which we thought would be expensive but was only 12 Euros! We went for a relaxing 4 days and that's what we had.

Peaceful retreat

Pros: The quiet and peaceful location, the view on the sea, the smallness of the hotel, the spacious suite...
Cons: Directions from the main road could be better, the place is difficult to find at night. The ventilation block outside the kitchen is too noisy.
Location: Algarve is beautiful, walks along the cliffs amazing. Probably crouded in summer...
A beautiful place, away from noise and trafic. The area is great, the views, the cliffs, the secluded beaches are breathtaking.

Ruhiges Hotel

Schöne, ruhige, aber auch sehr abgelegene Lage. Geschmackvoll, geräumige eingerichtete Suiten. Gastronomie ordentlich, nicht ueberragend. Gutes 4-Sterne Niveau insgesamt.
