We visited the holiday village in October 2015. It was our first family holiday abroad and had everything we needed. The children enjoyed the food every day, no complaints there! The only negative was that there was only a limited breakfast on the morning of our flight, due to the kitchen not officially being open. The children were not interested...

Writing this review 6months after we came back. Long and short of it is that my kids cried themselves to sleep when we came home because they had so much fun. 8 of us in total. Entertainment staff were out of this world. 2nd time visiting and very likely will go back

Not our usual choice of destination for a holiday, but we were travelling with children and grandchildren for a half term break and thought this would give all the children the chance to find their own interests and activities and all the adults to enjoy some time for themselves. After a certain amount of misgiving, It turned out to be...

There is so much going on for the kids and adults throughout the day which is great entertainment. The first choice reps are...

Our room was in block 1 a one bed apartment with no view. It was very dated. Bathroom poor, cracked tiles and mould round bath and seals. No power in the shower....

Situated across the road, 5-10 minute walk, from a superb 9 hole golf course, and Salgados golf course, 18 hole, a 10-15 taxi ride away was our first consideration in booking in the Algarve. Staying in a First floor sea-view spacious apartment, over looking palm tree lined pool with an All inclusive package was a bonus. With six pools to...

(3 adults & 2 kids) What a brilliant holiday and all thanks to the wonderful staff at this hotel. I always take into consideration price paid and value for money when leaving a review and this resort doesn't carry the hefty price tag of some of the other holiday villages... it feels more like 2 separate apartment hotels joined together...
