    The furnishings in the hotel were a bit mismatched and the room had noticeable water damage on one wall. It was very clean, however.

    The pool was beautiful, the location a short walk to the beach and breakfast had a great selection.

Let the reception know if some one is coming to pick you as they do not generally allow strangers in - they want to protect the peace of this place

    The only entrance was on the busy street side and a ways from the parking lot which made bringing luggage in a little difficult. The location was pretty far from the beach and parking at the beach was difficult

    The breakfast was very good with great selection of fresh vegetables and fruits, breads and cakes, yogurt, meats and cheeses. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

    Nothing!

    A fantastic stay! Ultra-friendly staff, really helpful and keen to make our stay really memorable. VERY clean, VERY comfortable bed and super-soft bedding, huge room with a full-size fridge with small freezer compartment. Plenty of storage space. Lovely big pool (unto about 6'6" deep) with plenty of outdoor sofa and sun lounger spaces. Sun and shade all day long. Good breakfast, thoughtfully managed to cater for all tastes. Traditional Portuguese, 'general European' and English breakfast items available. Location of hotel superb, easy walk into the town and it's beaches yet far enough out to be peaceful and quiet. Ideal location for the quieter Western end of the Algarve, yet not far from the more tourist areas. About a 15 minute drive into Lagos (easy parking just outside the old town wall), or about 30 minutes to Sagres and the amazing Western Algarve coast beaches. Thank you to Aurora Sol, we had a wonderful holiday.

    We would have liked the location of the Bed and Brealfast to be closer to Luz village. It was about a 15-20 min walk to restaurants and the beach. I would recommend renting a car for this location. Taxis and Uber are scarce. It would have been nice to have a iron and ironing board at our suite. Clothes can get very wrinkled in suitcases.

    Road can be busy, so at night you need to be a little more cautious while walking

    The entire staff is friendly and they were very accommodating to me (I travelled alone). First, my flight was delayed by over an hour, so I arrived after 10pm, but they waited for me and got me settled into my room very quickly. Second, I would come down to breakfast (last) and take my time but they never rushed me out of the dining room. Third, I needed to get back to Faro and the owner called and arranged my taxi back to Lagos and also found out the train times/cost for me. The entire facility is CLEAN! Pool was fab, has a lot of lounge chairs and shade area for those that prefer. I was very happy with my visit and would go back again.

    Herre is a list of all the things we liked a lot about this hotel: the staff: the hotel is run by a family and you are treated like a member of theirs. The owners both live on the property and are always available if you need something. They even arrange the breakfast around your needs and schedule. Fore example: We had to leave very early on our return trip and the owner prepared a breakfast box the night before. The facilities: Clean house, excellent room sizes, excellent beds, very nice outside facilities with a pool. Nothing more you could ask for. Location: It is roughly a 15 minute walk from the complex to the beach in Luz where you can find lots of bars and restaurants. Leave your car at the complex and have a drink at Endless-Summer Bar, it is well worth it! From Luz itself it is a 20 minute ride to sagres or carrapateira - if you want to surf on the west coast - and a 10 minute ride into Lagos (for party, shopping etc).
