difficult to assess, since just a 2 day stay is not long enough to comment on, however from what we saw it seemed that it had the potential to be a very pleasant venue.

Great Family Trip

My wife and I have been to this property many times in the past and this time we spent a great week with our extended family in three appartments.The staff were excellent in accomodating all of us in adjacent rooms which involved an upgrade for two families from studio to 1 bed appartment - something they didn't have to do. Although the room facilities are a little bit tired they are extremely clean and all functional. Wi-fi in the lobby is ok but would be better if available in all appartments. The property is centrally located for the three resort areas of Portimao, Praia Da Rocha and Alvor although this involves a short (cheap) taxi ride unless you enjoy walking. The outside areas, including pools, were clean and tidy. We will definitely return again to this family friendly property.

Bel hôtel un peu désuet au niveau équipement!

Pros: Les appartements bien équipés. La proximité des plages, centres d’intérêts et magasins
Cons: L’animation, la personnalisation, l’intérêt du personnel envers la clientèle. L’utilisation en réception de quelques employés qui parlent français
Location: Près de tous les points d’intérêts en Algarve
Pas de coordination ni d’organisation d’événements. Étant en individuel impossibilité de faire des contacts...

Erinomainen sijainti

Pros: Sijainti, tilavat huoneet
Cons: WC-tilojen viemärit toimi huonosti
Location: Hyvä sijainti rannalle ja Alvorin kylään, läheiselle lentokentälle.
Sijainti erinomainen, hyvät kulkuyhteydet kaikkialle. Taksin sai paikalle erittäin nopeasti. Huone siivottiin hyvin ja usein.

Guter ruhiger Urlaub in schöner Umgebung

Das Appartement war sehr geräumig, sogar 1 Zimmer mehr erhalten als bestellt. Da Vorsaison ruhig und nicht überlaufen. Küche sollte etwas besser ausgestattet sein.Sehr leichthörig -Stühlerutschen von oben sehr laut. Kein Wlan im Zimmer und bei der Rezeption waren beide Gäste PC ausser Betrieb. Gestört hat mich auch die nichtfunktionierenden Duschen (Hygiene?) am Pool. Für den Preis sonst aber angenehm.

Excellent séjour

Séjour très agréable, l'appartement est très confortable et très propre, un petit bémol néanmoins sur la robinetterie de la douche //Le personnel est agréable et très attentif//
