    Clean and large room. Healthy food menu.

    Indoor swiming pool and sauna area were smaller than we expected. Spa entry fee was expensive!

  • Couple

    We upgraded and had the romantic weekend offer that was value for money, the breakfast room has fantastic views, the service and food was excellent our room also had a full kitchen that was great, i would recomend this hotel if you want to chill out end relax with most comforts under one roof.

    I have no complaints about this place ,i would however advise you make sure you get a member of staff to give you a guided tour of the hotel because it is split into three areas and on different levels, it can be hard to get about at first so make sure you ask.

    the hotel was minamilist in every respect

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    food was not five star standard, both my wife and i felt completely ripped off other than that the place was fine

    the evening meal was not 5 star however the breakfast was good

  • Couple
    10.0

    Fantastic location with great views over the hills towards Portimão and the Algarve coast. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite, with coast view, was huge and superbly decorated. The Spa was also very good. A great place to relax and chill out. Wonderful.

    The breakfast, whilst good, had a smaller selection than what I'd expect from a five star hotel, and hot breakfast items (eg omelets, sausages, bacon etc) have to be asked for especially.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Rooms are good, facilities and service are acceptable sympathy overcomes some inefficiency.

    Insonorization could be better, frigobar was empty at arrival. Even considering it was a suite with kitchenette at leasta bottle of water would have been nice.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Booked last minute & upgraded to apartment suite due to low season - massage was excellent, very skilled & professional. Best though was the fine dining - the restaurant & staff really were good.

    A bit too austere - lacked personality.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The suite was excelent, furnishings and fittings all modern and comfortable.

    There was no complimentry tea/ coffee/milk/sugar although the facilities for cooking and making drinks were excelent it would have been nice to have known to bring our own tea or coffee. Also the different levels of the hotel and lift access to the rooms was confusing, we could not see any clear fire escape route and felt there would be trouble getting out in case of emergency.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Stunning location, beautiful room, amazing views, very friendly and helpful staff. There is a bar/restaurant within 2 minutes walk of the hotel. Great food/prices. Definitely hope to return.

    A slight niggle was the proximity to the road on Monday morning, quite a lot of traffic from early on.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The room and parking were excellent, the staff were really helpful and the location was exactly what we had hoped for.

    The meals were overpriced, Nuvo Cuisine is small portions well prepared but should not be so expensive. The use of the spa should have been extended to 'room only'guests whilst the hotel was quiet.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Luxury in a beautiful part of the Algarve

  • Couple
    10.0

    Firendly staff, well equipped rooms, very good breakfast. Very atractive design

  • Couple
    9.2

    Everything was absolutely new

    A perfect example how far the architect can go with his ideas if nobody stops him. For example: Communication betwen buildings was confusing. It was really difficult to find reception starting from own room, or to call elevator! Room numbers did not correspod to anyting: decks, levels, buildings, etc.Location - it is far away of any point of interest. Swimming pool - cold water. Spa - highly expensive.

  • Single
    9.2

    a really lovely stay. knid regards tot eh genral manger, Anil, who is very good at hisjob and very personable. i loved the stay.

    the extra 25 euro necessary to use the spa-which i did not.
