                  beautiful beach, hotel Made us feel like we were on a cruise.

                  We were told there were 3 resturants ,but there was only one open for dinner.

                  It was our first time visiting Portugal and couldn't have selected a more beautiful location. 5* comforts on the beach but so close to the beautiful fishing village of Alvor with wonderful array of fish restaurants. The weather was really great ranging from 22 - 26 degrees throughout our five day stay ..... breakfast facilities were most relaxing and enjoyable.

                  I enjoyed easy access to the pool area. The views of the sea. The warm reception in the dining room for dinner and breakfast. The hotel enviornment felt very safe.

                  Noise permeating from early morning risers as the wheels of suitacases could be heard. The piano for breakfast broke the peace of the morning. I would have liked a receipt for my food and drink also for my records. The airconditioning was not very efficient. The shower in my room was dissapointing and the shower curtain allowed the water to wet the floor. T.V reception was not great. I don't agree with it's five star rating, perhaps four.

                  Location

                  It is definitely not a 5 star hotel but certainly charges 5 star prices. As a minimum in a 5 star hotel you expect a porter to collect your bags from the car. this never happened upon arrival or departure from the hotel. Also a 5 star hotel should be offering refreshments around the pool to guests, not have them have to go to the main bar and wait to be served.

                  Fantastic location.Good choice of breakfast up until 10.30am and wonderful to sit on the terrace overlooking the beach and listening to the pianist.Comfortable rooms. Good size balcony.Lovely gardens.

                  Sun loungers have seen better days.In 5 star property would expect padded loungers. Could do with a bit of TLC re steps damaged in places.

                  Bathroom was not up to 5 star standard. Black mould between tiles and fittings were needing updated.

                  9.2

                  Very good position overlooking dramatic swathe of coastline and walking distance from small fishing village. Rooms tastefully refurbished. Beautifully tended gardens and well equipped large pool area. Staff professional friendly and welcoming.

                  The bar dark with only overhead lighting and in need of a lift.

                  7.0

                  Excellent location with splendid views from hotel room. Close proximity to beach and excellent restaurants on the beach and nearby.

                  We had stayed at this hotel in 2004 and noticed a decline in standards. The hotel generally is in need of refurbishment and in particular the bathroom, balcony. The bedrooms haven't been decorated in a long time. With a few exceptions, the staff were not especially attentive. I don't know if it is because it is the end of the season but that should not have made a difference. Did you find this review helpful? YesNo
