Lovely Apartment pity about the food

The apartment was lovely - no complaints. We had booked half board. The breakfast was ok but the dinner was inedible. We tried outside at the buffet at the pool and we also tried the restaurant. The food was cold and every night we returned the food and complained. We ended up having to eat out - after paying for half board!!! We complained to the catering manager - Matius - but to no avail. He was polite but didn't want to know and more or less told us it was too bad! I would recommend going to this apartment on a self catering basis.

The best thing about my stay was...

Right beside beach and also has lovely pool.
8/10 Great

Good and not so good

The position and facilities were good. The rooms were well tended and the hotel staff helpful and friendly. I could find no fault. However it transpired that the catering operations were franchised and the contract was ending. This meant that the staff were short handed and the service suffered. Let's hope the next franchisee is better. Those staff were generally good (the senior barman) and it will be disappointing to loose the ones that tried to make up for the shortfalls. Management take note

The best thing about my stay was...

Sun, facilities, local bars and places to walk to easily

lovely holiday yet again

We have stayed here several times before but the last time was more than 5 years ago and they still remembered us( In a good way)! They offer good rooms, well equipped quite spacious with good size balcony the beds have improved, definitely more comfortable.all the rooms are basically apartments with kitchen lounge bedroom and bathroom ours had air conditioning so its easy to self cater if so desired. They have a good system with shutters and blinds which allows for good security even with with doors and windows left open. Is in a perfect position just a few steps down to the beach which is beautiful, unlike nearby Praia do Rochas which is very high up above the beach over 100 steps in most places! The hotel is busy but remains quiet and relaxing, The restaurant is excellent we didn't bother to go anywhere else all the food is beautifully prepared. 2 good swimming pools one indoor one outside with plenty of sun beds around plus 2 small pools for the little ones. there is no need to travel for basic food or drink with a shop on site and spar nearby. A walk up to the top of the hill gives you lots of shops, restaurants, ATM, the supermarkets are a short bus ride away and are huge you can get everything there. there is loads of parking near to the apartments if you hire a car good places to visit are Lagos on the coast and Monchique up in the mountains.

The best thing about my stay was...

Weather and the food.
