Breakfast was very nice with lots of variety. The sea water pool and the access to the sea itself were absolutely brilliant - great to relax a bit after a long hike. We also enjoyed the lounge bar and restaurant above the pool, the food was nice and views there are magnificent. There is a lot of free parking options and a small supermarket just a few meters from the hotel.
The bathroom could use a bit of bleach here and there - it was clean, but there were some patches of black mold in the seams of the shower wall. Wifi did get slow during the peak hours (around 6 - 10 PM).
Reasonable prices Good staff - especially at night he pool bar and especially Ana (she is an asset to your resort)
Should be an on site shop in my opinion Bar open after 10pm
The hotel is located at a Garajau Partial Natural Reserve so the ocean is the cleanest. 10-15 minutes for ~25 euros by taxi is the "distance" from the airport. Quite, clean, big and beautiful area near the ocean with plenty of facilities - places for rest and for sport, for taking sunbath and swimming, for eating and walking. Breathtaking views. Friendly and helpful staff. Rescue personal at the beach. Different activities, which are free for the hotel guests. The possibility of diving and snorkeling - there is a diving centre right on the beach, you can rent equipment if it's needed. Special beach zones only for adults. Free beach towels, sun beds and umbrellas. Several restaurants at the territory as well as nearby including fish & seafood restaurants, pizzeria, etc. Not more than 100 metres to a bus stop. If you like a long walks in sports shoes up and down the steep hillsides, then the city center is not far away either)) You should follow a sign "cantrata" - trail for pedestrians. There're the stunning oceans and the city's views from these hillsides.
Old air conditioner in the room with a terrible smell while working. Absence of fish or seafood an the breakfast and limited menu of stewed vegetables. It would be great if the hotel provided a shuttle to or from the airport.
Great location, facilities, breakfast and staff.
Nothing really it is a very pleasant hotel set on many levels.
The resort features an excellent pool and sunbathing complex down by the ocean cliff. Of course, you can get safely in and out to the ocean from there as well! You can get down there by the elevator!
During our stay (mid-August), the whole week was quite windy. We travelled all around the island and noticed that there was much less windy at other places at the same time. It seems that the location of the hotel - Caniço - has naturally more wind than other parts of the island.
