    We had an upgrade on arrival and were very happy with all facilities except the bar.The spa in particular was excellent, the beach and its restaurant were lovely especially at sunset.

    The fact that there was onlly 1 bar open in which there was no atmosphere.

    Very good

    The location was good. Would have been nicer if closer to the beach.

    Too far from Faro airport. Your desk attendant told us to get a taxi cab, pay for it, and give the receipt to the attendant. They would then credit the charge to our final bill. This did not happen. 120 euro's roundtrip from the airport!

    Superb

    We enjoyed the breakfast outside with a magnifiscent view on palm trees and ocean. The outside swimming pools were just perfect.

    We were dissapointed that children were not allowed into the indoors spa area and could not enjoy jackuzzi and sauna. Also the hotel restaurant was expensive and we thought that the food there was not worth for that price and for a 5 star hotel.

    Good

    Good business hotel with large spaces and extensive breakfast buffet. upgrade at check in for a garden view on the upper level.

    Checking in after 7pm, we were looking forward to using the spa and pool area but it was closed for the day which was dissapointing but the front desk staff did offer to store luggage the next day if we wanted to stay and use those facilities. Gourmet restaurant was OK, staff were somewhat nervous but friendly. Lack of decoration or flowers or music made the ambience rather sterile.

    Very good

    location was quiet and rooms were very good standard.Breakfast had a great choice .

    Our bedroom was not serviced on second day of our stay.one bar only opened ,though there was a much better bar on roof terrace it was closed. I have to say in the discription we thought hotel was on beach in fact its quite a walk and not suitable for those who could not manage hill on way back. there was no shuttle service available during our stay. Perhaps you should alter this as it does not have beach location

    Fabulous

    The beach is really lovely, nice fresh fish and seafood at the beach restaurant (didn't try the other one) and very good buffet for breakfast. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Nice flat screen.

    Swimming pool and spa closing too early (6.30pm). Treatments need to be booked at least 24h before, cannot be booked on the day. No activities proposed by the hotel other than spa and beach. No concierge.
