    The only thing was the TV only 2 channels in German and I think polish or similar and a radio station in another language .. just one English channel would have been good .. we don't all take laptops or tablets on holiday .

    Loved everything else lovely staff , clean , quite fantastic breakfast .. would definitely recommend it and stay here again. .. a little gem .

    Staff were nice but got very stressed which didn't make me feel at ease.

    Breakfast was nice. Not much help on activities. Only suggested taxi everywhere. Never suggested renting a bike. Staff seemed stressed out, when asking for a simple taxi or help with things to do.

    Sometimes all your expectations are exceeded. What a lovely, quiet, relaxing and friendly family owned hotel! Located just 15 min drive from the golfcourses and beaches in a peacefull valley of Vale Judeu. The welcome was warm and personal. We had a spacious suite with everything you need. New beds and very clean. In the morning they serve a delicious breakfast. You can pick and choose from a menu. So no waste and exactly what you want and like. You enjoy your breakfast sitting next to the beautifull inner garden in the morning sun. A nice quiet swimming pool with comfortable beds and coffee and drinks on order. Great value for money. When you are in the busy Algarve , go and see it!!

    Not much really, a kettle in the room would if been nice. A communal one is a little dated these days. That's all though.

    Staff were great, very helpful and pleasant. Room was clean and tidy every day, pool was good. Breakfast was fantastic, the location for us was perfect. We enjoy walking so suited us, for those not keen on walking rent a car. Much better value than stopping in Vilamoura itself. Although a taxi is €12 so more than reasonable distance.

    I honestly couldn't fault this place. The location is wonderful and quiet. You probably want a car as there isn't much around though the staff were good enough to make me a sandwich for dinner even though they weren't open.

    What a wonderful little oasis! Everything from the beautiful music playing to the perfect Pastel de natas were on point. I was coming from a wedding for a few days recovery and the staff let me do an early check in then showed me around the beautiful grounds. I spent the day by the gorgeous pool and didn't hear anything but birds all day. The room was comfy and clean and I had a great view over the roof to the hills.

    The owners and the staff were fabulous! So friendly and extra accommodating. The breakfast was amazing. The location was perfect. We loved the hotel so much that we blew off the beach the last two days and just chilled by the pool. I brought my fur baby and he was allowed to roam the property. All the staff loved animals. I’ll probably be back in a few months. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Jedyny malutki minus, było nam przykro z powodu nieotrzymania na koniec rabatu, który jak zauważyliśmy otrzymali wszyscy opuszczający hotel goście. Nie wiem czy powodem było wymeldowanie się wieczorem przez co nie mieliśmy kontaktu jak wydaje nam się z szefową, a przynajmniej Panią, która zawsze żegnała gości.

    Cały pobyt wspominamy bardzo dobrze. Przemiła obsługa, codziennie sprzątany pokój. Na ogromny plus zasługują przepyszne śniadania. Świeżutkie pieczywo, owoce oraz świeżo wyciskany sok z pomarańczy. Wszystko pyszne! Ogólnie serdecznie polecamy wszystkim to miejsce :)

    It is 15 euros each way to vilamoura marina in a taxi so be careful! I think it is misleading on the map and could look like it is nearer. There is nothing around the hotel (most certainly not walking distance) They serve toasties in the day and no evening meals. So if you are there for a long weekend and don't mind the taxi fares thats ok...... if you are there for a week take a car and stock up !

    The staff were so lovely, breakfast was nice. it was very peaceful being by the pool. The rooms were lovely. I really did love this place. A very relaxing stay!

    I honestly don't think there was anything we didn't like!

    The staff were just wonderful, they were very helpful with anything and everything! The pool was lovely and very clean! All of the communal areas were lovely, we spent time looking at the different plants and flowers whilst trying to spot fish and turtle! The bedrooms were really lovely, great big beds and super comfy! The breakfast was just amazing! We found ourselves having that and then not needing to eat until the night! It was so tranquil there, compared to the chaotic marina of Vilamoura, it was like a little oasis.

    It would have been a nice extra touch to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Another mirror would have been good too, as was only one in the bathroom.

    Lovely breakfast! Really peaceful location. The pool area was a great place to relax and was never busy, so no need to fight for a sun bed! Staff very helpful and have useful recommendations. A short drive away from nice beaches and the resorts of Albufeira and Villamoura, as well as Quarteira (good for places to eat). Definitely need to hire a car though as limited public transport/taxis.

    Well not much they can do about it, but location. Although surrounded by villas and houses, it is still quite remote and you need a car to drive to the nearest restaurant. There are no shops in the immediate locality, and only breakfast or snacks are available as Casa do Alto has no restaurant licence.

    The staff. All of them from Reception to Housekeeping were always smiling, courteous and could not do enough for their guests. The pool area was divine. We booked one of the suites and although a little disappointed that it did not have its own outside seating area, nevertheless the bed was so comfortable, so was the sofa in the living room and in any case, there is a communal patio area where we could take our coffee. The gardens are just beautiful and superbly (and discreetly) maintained.
