10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, just across the bridge from the train station and bus station right behind the hotel. With that said, make sure to get a marina view room. Walking distance to town centre and beaches. Great service also as we were able to store our luggage after check out and then use the shower facilities (towels and toiletries provided) when we returned from the beach!

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, the location good and very quiet at night. I twisted my ankle on a pothole, the staff were very kind.
Cons: The road to the main town was dusty and had potholes, it was difficult to navigate at night as no street lights in the last 100 yards or so.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect if you have a car. Luz is quiet and cozy but close enough to Lagos for a bit more action if desired. The breakfasts are beautiful, the beach amazing and the pool is beautiful and maintained very well. There are several stunning hikes from the hotel as well. We had a beautiful view of the pool and the sea. It was everything we were looking for!
Cons: It would have been lovely to have comfy lounging chairs on the balcony. For the coolish evenings, a hot tub would be a nice addition.

Pros: The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the beautiful beach. Receptionists have been professional and helpful with everything. They could arrange massage for us with Monica, she is excellent , we recommend her 100%. But the ladies in the kitchen are the best. Top class. Thank you, girls, for taking such great care of us.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the bonus included buffet breakfast - just wonderful sitting outside in the sun enjoying our buffet breakfast! The pools were gorgeous to sit around and very peaceful.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The bed was the most comfortable we have ever had on holiday. The staff were all really friendly and the facilities were excellent.
Cons: Having to go home after a nine-day stay!
6,3 Good
Pros: The rooms are big, clean and have a nice view. The hotel accommodations are also quite good.
Cons: The food at the hotel is quite bad and really not acceptable for a 5 stars resort. We ate at the restaurant of the hotel In our first day and we were served a very expensive frozen pizza and frozen pasta (and not even the good kind of frozen meal, they were basically cheap tasteless pasta with ketchup sauce). Also we did not appreciate that, during the check-in, they introduced us one of their restaurants as a “Michelin Star style restaurant”, even though it does not have a Michelin Star “yet”. This is something quite presumptuous and misleading to say about a restaurant, I don’t think they should get away with it... Anyway, after that first day, we never ate at the hotel again and we had always delicious Portuguese food in Lagos.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Appartment, swimming pool, breakfast, the gym, friendlyness, service, location near The Sea,
Cons: Nothing
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Persons available
Cons: No beach near
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really clean and nice, it’s also family friendly.
Cons: Beach close by (Praia de Moss) is not very good, it’s quite full of sea moss! We had to hang out at the pool all the time. The hotel gives complementary drinks upon welcome, however we were never informed that there is a limited selection of drinks for the “welcome offer”. So we ordered cocktails, and in the end we were charged for that (around 30€). When we explained the situation to the receptionist, he understood that it’s their fault so in order to apologize he wanted not to charge us for this. However, the hotel manager decided that we have to pay the drinks, although it was their fault!!!!!!!! This was a reallllly cheap attitude for a 5-star hotel, especially considering how much money we spent for the whole stay!!!!!!! Unfortunately it was a bitter ending... just because of the lack of vision of the hotel manager. Shame!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great view and close to Lagos City
Cons: Not a Dislike but would like more food options on the property.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: Staff very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Facilities fabulous

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Place was great location is exceptional and everything is clean and well taken care of. Our apartment was very large and spacious. Noticed easy access for anyone (elderly, children, disabled).
Cons: Quality of food is good but does not have a five star level. We also tried the Senses restaurant which was average.
5,8 Okay
Pros: We started in a 2 bed appt with a view over the building site. Appalling for £300+ per night!!!!! We paid to upgrade to the hotel - much better.
Cons: Some staff were great most declined to take any responsibility.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: The location and facilities are fantastic, we were a little disappointed with the dinner in the gastro bar (too expensive and very average) but breakfast was superb.
Cons: Dinner

Pros: amazing breakfast ...perfect location of beach
Cons: everything under control
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The food was varied and delicious. We found something we loved each morning and evening. The hotel is lovely, lots of space for its residents to relax. The pool is small but never felt overcrowded due to the garden area also.
Cons: There needs to be more bar staff of an afternoon/ early evening to facilitate the guests wanting a late afternoon drink around the pool. Each day there was only one which made the wait a little longer than expected.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about hotel, accommodations, staff, especially Paola, the Director was fabulous. The area is awesome, lots of restaurants, nitelife at your doorstep and already looking forward to our next visit!!!
Cons: Liked everything
7,0 Good
Pros: Location is perfect, staff was very friendly.
Cons: The bed was not very comfortable, the room had no view. Breakfast was a disaster. We arrived 20min before closing time and we had difficulties to find a clean and prepared table. Absence of staff was also not cool. We had to prepare a table for ourselves and we had to go after everything since nobody showed up during the 5min we waited at the entrance. On the level of option, breakfast was not at the level of a 4star hotel. Also we tried to have a spa session but the spa was closed, despite the timetable said it should be open. not the best experience and for almost the same price we had next to it a 5* hotel. We only took this one since it was adults only.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: We had the superior room with sea-view and it was great - nicely decorated, with a big balcony and all the facilities you need. The personnel is very welcoming and helpful, although we arrived late they prepared a late snack for us. The food is excellent, especially during dinner, you will find very good fish, sea food and meat, desserts were also excellent. The garden and the pool are very clean and the hotel provides also with towels.
Cons: The only drinks you get are during breakfast. For dinner every drink (including water) has to be payed for extra.
7,0 Good
Pros: The view on the beach and the location. Nelson, Tania (Resto)and Mario at the reception were very nice.
Cons: Bed was very uncomfortable, hard and you could feel the springs . No coffee in the rooms, only tea and no sugar unless you asked. If you include dinner in your package, all drinks including water, coffee, etc have an extra charge.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: brillant hotel lovely and quite we arrived late at night reception still waiting for us at 23.40 and had saved us a meal which i thought was great . Rooms have all you need and a stunning view over the beach
Cons: some of the older staff in the restaurant could have been a bit friendly
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Location. Staff. Beautiful building.
Cons: Coffee beans in restaurant need to be higher quality for this level of hotel. Such a shame we had to go out in the morning at breakfast time to find a decent Portuguese cup of coffee.
6,8 Good
Pros: Staff all very friendly
Cons: I was annoyed that the hotel did not pre warn us that a music festival was on during our stay.
Yellow Lagos Meia Praia - Adults Only - Lagos
6
9,1 Excellent (703 reviews)
R1 812+
Overview Reviews
Located by the Meia Praia beach in Lagos this 5-star hotel offers a spa and an outdoor pool with panoramic ocean views.
6,5 Good
Pros: The rooms are new, clean and comfortable including a bathtub (not an easy find in Lagos). There were significant vegetarian options for my wife at dinner and breakfast. Good live music entertainment at night.
Cons: If you are paying over $200/night it seems like an excessive price for the place since it is run more like a 3-3.5 than 4 or 5 star hotel. Some of the hotel is run down. There is a general lack of information about what to do and how to move around to and from Lagos. Staff could have been more helpful. Pool is cold which is a problem since the ocean in Lagos is numbingly cold even in the middle of July (colder than the coasts of Mexico, Brazil, the Mediterranean, beaches in SE Asia, etc). It seems like a minor thing but given the windy weather even when the town is hot, it was surprising to find very cold pools for the price paid.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great hotel with great management. Everyone is friendly and goes out of their way to better serve you. They upgraded us upon arrival to a master suite. Hotel is close to the beach and has amazing pools
Cons: None

8,3 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable rooms and extremely nice staff
Cons: The location was not as good as we expected. We have a baby and the pathways to both the town and beach were unsafe. It would stop us from going back to this location

8,5 Excellent
Pros: Nice breakfast with lots of variety. Rooms are spacious. Staff is very friendly, especially Pedro!
Cons: Nothing regarding the hotel itself, but Portimão is run down and dilapidated. This hotel is one of the best on the boardwalk.
9,7 Excellent
Pros: Lots of choices for breakfast. Lots of restaurants in area. Close to beach!
Cons: Only complaint is- we had a sea view room, but there was a huge video screen right across the street that played 24/7. If you have a sea view room ask to be on a floor higher then 3!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I loved the location the hotel and the staff I had a wonderful stay thank you
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It was central or Portimao had all the shops/beach super close
Cons: nothing
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Location was perfect! We were close to the beach. You can walk to restaurants, bars, casino. There were white tee pees down the street where you can buy sourvenirs and there was a carousel ride for children. It was a fun weekend for the whole family.
Cons: Parking was €20 a day. There was a dirt lot where you can park for free. It’s about a 10 minute walk. The refrigerator in our room was not working so we couldn’t store water for it to get cold. The bathroom door seemed to once have a lock and it was removed. So you can peak through the door and see inside or out.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Algarve is expensive. I thought the junior suite and half board package was a great value for the area and our family of 4. Both breakfast and dinner (that's thru half board) had great options. I loved the expansive salad bar at dinner and the champagne at brunch.
Cons: The air conditioning did not cool the room well.
7,0 Good
Pros: Good location, amazing suite.
Cons: Noise!! Music Festival on in Praia de Rocha which resulted in 100s descending into centre and in our hotel, security didn’t seem to have any control over them. Loud and abnoxious groups coming down corridors late at night and large groups out on balconies and room next to us . We complained to security but yet the noise carried on, our son was unwell also and had no sleep because of this, none of us actually had any sleep! we had no choice but to put up with the noise, very upsetting!

9,3 Excellent
Pros: Nice, clean and charming room with a balcony on the second floor overlooking the pool and outdoor eating area. It was nice quiet place to come back to in the evening after traveling around Lagos and the Algarve. The included breakfast was the best we had in our two weeks in Portugal. I would definately return here.
Cons: It could have been closer to the ocean and other restaurants but we found a nice English pub within walking distance.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: Magnificent breakfast. Super service
Cons: The sun umbrellas might be improved a little bit :)
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel close to the beach. Breakfast was wonderful buffet. Poolside was nice to relax and enjoy the evening with a drink.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, albeit quite crowded. The bed was very comfortable. I also very much enjoyed the huge bath tub in the room.
Cons: No matter what these hotels try to convince you, the bathroom should be in a separate room. There is no actual tennis court there - they said they have to drive you (and then you pay extra for it, as stated here, but not on their website)
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Clean rooms with a balcony and a small kitchen with all the appliances you need (we stayed in a studio). Excellent location if you enjoy walking, close to beautiful beaches (10 min walk) and not that far from the city centre (25 min walk). Good breakfast with a variety of foods and drinks. We honestly enjoyed everything.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: The location was good. Kind of away from the town, but still within walking distance (it might be a mile away, but there is nowhere to park in the old town, so we walked to town). It is close to Pointa de Piedade. We opted to walk instead of drive because we were worried about parking, but we would have been okay driving. It is walk-able, but if it's hot, it's not too fun. One thing I didn't understand about Costa d'Oiro Ambiance Village is that it is a "village." Meaning that there are several locations near one another where you might be staying (I think they said there were 4 different properties in the area that they rent rooms from). We stayed in a grey house across the road from the main structure. Our room was very nice and newly updated. This house had it's own pool and a sauna too. For breakfast we walked to the main house/hotel. It's really close, so it wasn't a big deal. They have a large parking lot right next to the main hotel area. We never had a problem finding a space. The breakfast was a pretty large buffet. You can tell that they try to accommodate people from many different cultures and backgrounds. There shouldn't be a problem finding something that you will like. Our room also had a very large bathtub. The only issue is that it would probably take an hour to fill it with water. There is a separate shower.
Cons: I did not like the toilet room. It is surrounded by white glass. If you go in there at night, the light from the toilet room lights up the entire bedroom. There is basically no privacy in the room.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Location is amazing, just 5 mins walking to Praia Dona Ana which is beautiful. The breakfast has a wide range of good choices
9,5 Excellent
Pros: The studio was comfortably outfitted with everything you'd need (including a corkscrew, it's surprising how many places miss that detail.) The bed was comfortable, the shower powerful, and perhaps best of all, it was a short walk to several beaches and a very good restaurant.
Cons: The restaurant menu at the property wasn't very extensive (though breakfast was spectacular!)
9,3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in one of the apartments and it was fantastic. Spotlessly clean, spacious and modern. The property had excellent facilities, and most of the days we were able to have 1 of the 3 pools to ourselves (even though the hotel was full). The breakfast was AMAZING, so much choice and always being topped up. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Couldn’t rate the place highly enough. Would recommend for couples.
Cons: The only slight negative is that it is around a 15 minute walk to the town, although that is hardly far!
9,5 Excellent
Pros: We really liked the location. It’s outside of town a little but but close (walking distance) to two of the nicest beaches. The breakfast buffet was very good.

9,3 Excellent
Pros: We really liked the new decking area on the 3th Floor as it was beside our apartment and you can avoid the noise at the Pool as that has changed alot since we started coming here.Also Lourdes and her assistant at the weekend in the Pool Bar are very professional and pleasant to all.
Cons: Noise at the Pool was mental and too many mad kids and mad adults for our liking.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Great location and good size apartment. Pool area is nice.
Cons: We were on the entry level which was noisy at night and the balcony was right on the street so we didnt use it. The beds are like hard boards.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Apt was spotless. Cleaned and towels changed every day. Kitchen very well equipped with all utensils needed. Location is excellent, right in the centre of Alvor and a short walk to the beach.
Cons: A bit noisy early in the morning but I think this was due to being at garden level and storage area was close by.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: After check out, hotel is available to offer guest room with shower. This helps us a lot for evening departure.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It was modern and clean ..... loved the garden apartment . I have stayed at these apartments before and would definitely stay again

8,8 Excellent

Cons: Nothing
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, friendly staff, excellent location and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks!
Cons: Nothing.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: Location was absolutely perfect. We were in walking distance to everything. We had a ground floor apartment with garden and I would definitely recommend this with 2 young children (2 and 8months). Staff we very friendly and efficient. Apartment was cleaned every day and towels changed. Pool area was also spotless. Great that poolside bar sold snacks and drinks and was never overcrowded. We would definitely consider returning to AlvorMar again.
Cons: We requested a travel cot when booking and this wasn’t supplied initially when we arrived. Our flight was delayed so we didn’t arrive at apartment until midnight so this was. Big frustrating. But staff were very apologetic and had one supplied the next morning and high chair, no extra charge. If requesting one I would recommend double checking with them just before your visit. Price was a bit expensive for self catering but we travelled at peak season with a garden terrace and the location was definitely superb so that’s going to increase the price.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: Loved location. Facilities were very good. My room was excellent. All was good this is why we have booked to come back next year.
Cons: Pool area was a bit cramped at times.

9,3 Excellent
Pros: Great location near the beach and only a five minute drive or 25 minute walk into the old town. Fantastic for an early morning walk on the beach before the crowds arrived.
Cons: The WiFi was pretty poor and hard to get a phone signal at times.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great friendly staff, clean room, AMAZING sea view, good location right next to the beach and away from the city hustle and bustle. Loved this place!
Cons: Check-out is earlier than most places (10:00); but the staff accommodated us by letting us check out at 12:00.
3,0 Mediocre
Cons: The apartment beds were hard as rocks. The TVs were the size of a computer monitor. There are no free refills on soft drinks.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Location wise this hotel was spot on, the only concern was the location of convenience facilities, the closest shop being approx 10-15 in a walk, so if you have no car, difficult to accommodate requirements when walking. Beds were adequate but uncomfortable. Having said that reflected in the cost. Bus service into Lagos town excellent, reasonably priced transport cost and an abundance of restaurants and entertainment. Local restaurants really good, if not slightly expensive.
Cons: The showers at the pool could be updated to accommodate just a receptacle to hold a towel when changing, otherwise, everything gets wet, other than that all good. Restaurant food, not all that, only ate their once, could have eaten their many times but not inclined due to cost and quality.
4,5 Okay
Pros: Location was great, close to the beach.
Cons: Lots of ants in the rooms even after it being sprayed, would get into towels and food as well. Pool water was very cold. Staff was not accommodating at all.
5,5 Okay
Pros: The swimming pool and the view from the room.
Cons: The food in the hotel was some of the worst I've had. Ever. Literally. The service was also terrible. The hotel was also 25 minutes from the nearest shop. They charged 3 euro for a bottle of water.
6,8 Good
Pros: It was close to the beach.
Cons: Room very basic and old; resort was ‘tired’. Not close to any restaurants either, so you need a car.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: All is a dream...
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Close access to beach was great - some places say they're "close" to the beach when it's a fair hike. This place is really walking distance to a wonderful beach. Having a decent sized pool and pool area was such a bonus - was great to just sit all day at. The apartment was also decent sized for a family of 3. We literally could get out from the back of our apartment to the garden, then walk down to the beach. Most of the staff was great as well and very helpful and accommodating - something we appreciate when you're new to an area.
Cons: Nothing much (just a staff member who was unwilling to assist with service at the pool after 7pm - maybe it should be extended to a little later?)

6,8 Good
Pros: Spacious. Good location, near the beach and the cliffs. Good facilities at the other location even though we did not use then much. Easy parking.
Cons: It has been refurbished, but the refurbishment is not of the best quality, so the floor is torn in places, some cupboards in the kitchen are showing the old walls inside, etc ... The kitchen is big but misses some basic things (had to use plastic spoon to remove the eggs from a very sticky pan ...). No coffee or tea. This is not quite on par with the price.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, beautiful view from the room, very clean and modern room, well priced. Would definitely recommend this place and would definitely come back here!
Cons: One of the front desk staff members was not the friendliest, somewhat sarcastic and unhelpful so I wouldn’t necessarily rely on them for help in planning day trips and activities. Everything else about the place made up for it so would still recommend staying here regardless.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location was great! And all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the kitchen we great for cooking. Incredibly close to D. Anna Beach and only a 10min uber ride to the city center.
Cons: The reception closed at 6pm and the hotel did not have a resturant service located at this property. The gym and sauana, which were also located at another propery, were much smaller than I expected and the sauana was out of service during our stay. Not a lot of dining options close by and parking can be difficult during the day as the parking for the hotel is the parking for the beach.

Pros: The on-site swimming pool
Cons: The customer service received was poor as payment for my reservation was deducted twice by staff and this was not properly resolved whilst at the hotel and repayment has not yet been made as of a week of checking out of the hotel and even though I received confirmation that this would be paid within three days of checking out the hotel also. Please take care when paying the property to avoid being double charged and not being repaid for the double payment. Also there were no double beds available unless paying for a family suit so sleeping was uncomfortable
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location of the Hotel is the best, we found some free places at the pool every time we wanted to stay there. Everyday were some kind of entertainment activities by the pool for everyone who wanted to participate. Scooba diving lessons for free also were included by the pool. Music and a good atmosphere were also a pro. The room was very comfortable and clean, fresh towels every day and balcony with a great view. The staff was also very friendly and nice. A lot of parking spaces in the yard. As for the breakfast, there was a lot of fresh food, pancakes, eggs, coffee and espresso, everything fine, I would definitely recommend it.
Cons: Nothing.

They first helped us find a place to eat when we arrived late. Then they borrowed us free beach towels ( and offered free umbrellas, chairs, and beach paddles), allowed us to use their printer, and were overall excellent hosts. Breakfast was nice bread, meat, and cheese and was very good (best free breakfast we have received while in Europe). The room was very clean and nice enough condition. I absolutely would stay again.

Pros: The breakfast was continental with white buns, mini brioche, butter, jam, ham, cheese and different types of hot and cold beverages. The owners even offered us fresh sliced tomato with olive oil every morning and nutella for our son :) Overall, we received a LOT of food; as soon our plate was empty, they refilled the table immediately with new supplies. The hotel is situated in a great neighbourhood, you really live with locals here, away from the tourists. The owners are super friendly, they helped us with tips about attractions, restaurants and activities every day. Special thanks for the champagne for my husband's birthday, it was so unattended! The beach is about 10-15 min walk, the center 5 min, so everything is nearby. The free parking on the street was a big plus!
Cons: It would have been nice with a browner bread as alternative but as said before, we had a lot of food for breakfast, so we never left the table hungry.

Its overall quality is closer to a 2-star than a 4-star hotel - stupid construction of a toilet door - it can be closed only partially - very small bed for 2 people - sheets instead of blankets - Wi-Fi works only near a room's entrance - little space between tables in a restaurant. One can hardly squeeze between them - poor breakfast - not enough staff handling breakfasts - hard to find a parking lot nearby during day hours

Cons: For the price i expected more facilities. Rooms were spartan and missing essential items such as somewhere to sit in the room besides the bed (lots of unused space in the room), a kettle, toiletries or comfy balcony furniture (so could not really appreciate balcony) and enough brellas and chairs at pool.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect holiday location. You can relax and enjoy the choice of pools and private beach contained within the complex. The two restaurants we ate at were very good, one cut into the cliff face on the hotel’s private beach. Staff could not be nicer or more helpful. Felipa, Dalia and everyone at reception were wonderfully helpful and pleasant. Fabulous amenities. The clifftop pool is my favourite ever swimming pool. It is glorious. The room was lovely, overlooking one of the pools, and we had a nice kitchenette to prepare food if we wanted to. You can walk into Alvor along the boardwalk or take a taxi costing around 5 Euro. This was my second visit to this property and I will be back.
Cons: My only small suggestion is that the towel change is every three days or so, which, on a beach holiday, isn’t really enough. I did get them changed when I asked though but a daily change should be standard.

Cons: Far too much use of plastic bags for refuse in kitchen and bathroom.

Prainhe is a lovely secure complex which we as a family have enjoyed over the years and will be back again next year
Cons: Maybe more evening entertainment would keep guests at the hotel as it gets very quiet at nightime and most families head for the village of alvor in the evening but if there was entertainment on site it would encourage families to stay there

Cons: We didn't like one of the Waiters at Breakfast.. the guy with the pony tail, don't know his name as he didn't wear a name badge. He was very unfriendly and quite aggressive at times and didn't really make having breakfast a pleasureable and relaxing experience.
9,3 Excellent
Cons: Receptionist lady who works during the day could be more friendly. Very formal atmosphere.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel itself is perfect, clean, spacious, well maintained, well appointed. It was one of our favorites at that price point in the Algarve. The bathroom was big and immaculate, lovely white fluffy towels. The bed sheets were crisp and luxurious and the AC worked perfectly. The pool facilities were great, as were the games in the games room. It's a little out of town, which we actually liked, it made for a nice walk to the beach. There's also adequate parking by the hotel. The breakfast was great too!
Cons: The lady at check in (with glasses) was one of the rudest hotel staff we met throughout our entire trip. We were some of the youngest hotel guests - most guests seemed to be 60+ and we were treated like school children who shouldn't be staying in such a hotel. She barked the check in process at us and we even think she downgraded our room category as we asked for sea view and we ended up with pool view on the ground floor. The check in experience was not enjoyable at all and when we built up the courage to ask her some questions about the hotel facilities later on they were met with snappy negative replies. This put a dampner on the stay a little, which was only rectified the next morning when there was a different lady (with a nose ring? possibly pregnant?), who was charming and very hospitable.

Cons: The food, presentation, environment, staff etc etc
6,3 Good
Pros: I really liked the pool area and the view from our room was very beautiful. I also liked the people at reception they were very friendly and helpful with our enquiries
Cons: I think for a 4* hotel the breakfast “buffet” should have more variety of choice and should maybe alter on different days. The options were quite boring and considering we paid almost £800 i was not happy with breakfast. However i must say the pool bar food was very delicious and would recommend their prawns.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities were good. The pools were easily accessible. The evening meals were of high quality and the bar was well stocked. The staff were friendly and professional
Cons: The hotel has a four star rating which is probably due to the facilities but not to the quality of the facilities. In general the hotel is a bit dated and could benefit with an upgrade particularly the bathroom areas of the bedrooms. The breakfast was the biggest disappointment both in quality and variety. In a country where fresh fruit is available and cheap the use of tinned fruit is unacceptable as is the lack of fresh orange juice. Only one cheese was on offer and it was poor quality as was the cold meat.We stayed in another four star earlier in our holiday and the quality of the breakfast was vastly superior
