    Cleaning was very poor considering the rate of the hotel. Towels could have better quality.

    Very happy with my choice. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen provided everything needed in order to have a pleasant meal without living the apartment.

    I think the animation is strictly "French Tourist" focused. The TV is really outdated, and the WiFi is a mith.

    Lovely hotel and facilities. Staff were very friendly. The Hotel is not walking distance from the old and new town but great value for the location and facilities. Would be great for a family who were happy to stay around the hotel.

    Wifi is weak but it's not a surprise - never been to a hotel which had strong and uninterrupted wifi signal.

    Spacious and clean apartment, nice pool area, excellent value for money - best place to go in Albufeira if you have a car.

    Customer friendly reception employees. Indoor swimming pool really small and maybe not healthy. Fitness is really not included and misleading the pictures.

    No wifi in the rooms, sad for a four-star hotel which was great in every other way. There should also have been washing-up liquid and a sponge to be able to do the dishes. And the TV had very few channels.
