    • Brilliant place!

      Reviewed 23 September 2019

      Just spent a week here with our 4 year old daughter and family, and we loved it! The hotel is very clean (the reception area is beautiful with the light up wall), and staff are really friendly and helpful. Rooms are really modern and bright. We were half board, so had the buffet breakfast and dinner. Plenty choice of fresh foods, all of which we enjoyed. Theres a daily shuttle bus which can drop you in either Quarteira or Vilamoura which is really handy and not too long a journey to get to. Also Uber is available in the area which is cheap. The water park is BRILLIANT. Each day we went we discovered a new area! Plenty of pools and slides for little ones as well as the big ones for adults. There are measuring guides throughout the park so that you can see which slides children can go on, which was really handy. Overall its a really lovely place, and wed definitely come back!

    • Serves a purpose. perfect if you will visit the water park most days. Food not great

      Having read several negative reviews of the food here we were a bit concerned prior to arrival. It certainly is basic and somewhat overpriced; but honestly- for us there is nothing majorly wrong with it and the service we have had has been top notch. You can certainly get better meals nearby for less, Or a little more. The only thing i will say if like most brits you love a cuppa in the morning - bring a travel Kettle and tea bags as the tea at breakfast is shocking. Several varieties- all infused and horrible. We were b&b only. apparently the evening buffet isnt great. we found the breakfast ok. Certainly not great Very clean and modern hotel. Wifi great Fridge in room only works with key card in the electric supply, as does the air con (the balcony door must also be closed for a/c to work) Everything other than the waterpark is 5-10 each way in an uber. plenty of decent restaurants 10 return in a uber/taxi and 2-3 within walking distance. 9 return in uber to Lidl (including 10 minutes waiting time) Reading some other reviews I can only assume perhaps staff were overstretched during high season as we are here toward the end (mid September) and everything has been perfect. We would only return here if we decided to visit the waterpark again. Our favourite nearby restaurants have been Alxama (meat/bbq) (800m away)100 Os agosthinos (meat/fish) (200m) 80-100 Wildfire (meat) (1 mile approx and 200) Prices are what we paid for a family of 5

    • Worst family Hotel we've been to

      Reviewed 14 September 2019

      We stayed in this hotel for our summer holiday with 2 children aged 7 and 12. Read mixed reviews but decided to go with the positives, however it was unfortunately the wrong choice. We arrived here around 11am to be greeted with sad faced "cant be arsed" attitudes of staff. We were told our room was not going to be teady until 4.30 and that we could leave our cases at reception (i understand a small wait but they were expecting oir flight landing) i think 4 and a half hours to wait for a room is unacceptable! When questioned this the repsonse from the staff was "eell you can go sit out there (as they pointed to the outside pool bar in the scorching sun with no suncream). So we haf no option but to wait. When we eventually got into our room that is the only thing that was ok about thos hotel. The room was clean and a decent size. EVEINING MEAL TIME- 2 hungry kids and adults we ventured downstairs for our evening meal. Now normally meal tines are busy people all over, queues sometimes, but here nobody about, walked into the "restaurant" to be greet again with a very unhelpful, interested, rude member of staff. There was 1 other person in the whole of the restaurant!we ordered a drink then went to the section to pick out food. We was absolutely shocked. There was the most unappetizing food id ever seen in a hotel. There was no labels on anything so we could see there was some sort of fatty red meat in sauce tht looked like dog meat, some fish in sauce some cold chips and some dry spaghetti with no sauce to go with it. There was a few cheeses amd salad at the other side. (Nothing for majority of children to eat) my children could not eat any of that and i certainly did not want to try it. So we went outside to the pool bar anf had to buy some chickem nuggets, this bar is not cheap but the quality of food is far better although it comes from the same place its obvious to tell, if you are paying for it its better. ENTERTAINMENT- well i dont really know how to describe it apart from saying "what entertainment". There was 4 so called dancers that looked like they had put a roytine together an hour before the show as only 1 knew what they was doing whilst the others tried to copy. Then another night there was a game of bingo. The pool had kids jumping in it at 11pm on a night with nobody telling them. The guy setting up the speaker for the dancing put the speaker on the edge of the pool and ran the wire along the side of the pool (health and safety at its best)!! BREAKFAST- a general selection, however the cooked food was all cold, the bacon was dripping in grease, the eggs was near to not cooked. EVENING MEAL 2ND NIGHT- burger, 1 type of fish in sauce, dry spaghetti with no sauce and chips that had been re heated a few times and was still cold. My partner decided to try a burger (he is npt a fussy eater at all) however he cut it in half took a bite and spit it out, it was freezing cold in the middle! When the waiter asked if we'd finished we told him and his reply was "would you like it heating up" NO THANK YOU WE DO NOT WANT FOOD POISIONING!! We addressed all of our concerns with the hotel management who were uninterested and very rude. All they was interested in was telling us they had a good food rating. We saw 2 of the young girls in the desk as you walk into the restaurant pointing at people being rude. There was a numberof people we got talking to at this hotel who had the same complaints and some worse. We from day 1 was on the phone with our holiday company trying to get a move as we was supposed to be here 2 weeks but there was no way we could have stayed here and so we asked to be either moved or flown home. We managed to get moved to another hotel and tried to enjoy the restof our holiday which was far better far more professional happy staff,pleasant and had manners. The food was 100% compared to this. I know this hotel looks very good with the connection to the water park which does look amazing however i would strongly advise people to either stay in another hotel and visit the water park or stay here self catering but be prepared for costly food. We will never go again or recommend this hotel to anyone! We are so unhappy with how we were treat by this hotel and it wasn't cheap but feel they do not care now they have got our money!

    • Brilliant Holiday

      Reviewed 14 September 2019

      We visited as a couple with our 14 month old daughter, I was apprehensive about the hotel after reading the reviews before we left - but it was brilliant! The breakfast buffet was varied and fresh, the staff constantly topped up items that were running low. The food from the bar area was really nice too. The whole hotel is modern, clean and all the staff are so friendly. Our little girl loved the lady who works in the play area she was amazing with all kids and was really attentive which was lovely to see. We didnt get to see her on our last night as we wanted to say thank you and good bye so hope she can see this! Yes the hotel is a bit out of the way but it does say that when you book, there are 2 restaurants a 3 minute walk away which we enjoyed and with the shuttle bus that runs daily as well as cheap Ubers running in the area it was easy & cheap to get to and from Quarteira/Vilamoura during the day and in the evenings. The pool area was always clean and with the choice of 3 pools inc. the indoor one there was plenty to keep our daughter entertained. Its a 5 minute walk to the water park which again was really good, a good value lunch menu and plenty to do for all ages inc. our baby. The only point I agree with that I read in previous reviews is that the entertainment in the evening is quite loud up in the rooms and we were quite far from where it was set up so wouldnt have liked to have been right above it. However, it wasnt unbearable, stopped before midnight and it didnt wake the baby up at all; it was more just an annoying background noise for us when we were trying to get to sleep a couple of nights. We had such a great holiday, loved the area and would definitely visit this hotel again!

    • Gone down hill

      Reviewed 12 September 2019

      3rd year staying here & unfortunately the place has gone downhill. First two visits we couldn't fault it which is why we returned. This year there seemed to be problems with staff, don't get me wrong they were all friendly & do, so helpful, I feel management are the problem. We witnessed staff being told off in front of customers by management, staff & management arguing & shouting & one staff member walking out. Seemed to be the same staff working non stop & there was a shortage of them. Long waiting for drinks & for food orders. No lifeguard this year either, previous years there was a lifeguard manning the inside & outside pool who used to also interact with the children, nothing this year. This resulted in the indoor pool being a free for all, no one takes any notice of the rules & no parents seem to watch their children, they are running about dangerously jumping in where signs say you can't, climbing up things & it's really quite dangerous. We had a mixture of children in our group from age 3-14, other children stole our inflatables on more than one occasion. There's no control or order round the pool. Rubbish floating in the pool, my daughter retrieved a glass from the baby pool. I feel all of this would be ok if it was staffed better like previous years. The music was not great this year. Last year there was an elderly chap playing music on a proper disco set, this year he was nowhere to be seen & music was played via a mobile device & was whatever the staff fancied, nothing any good & the sound was awful. Struggled to get sun beds due to other families putting towels out very early & then going over to waterpark for the day. We will never return here.
