We needed a sports bar for the champions league. Someone suggested here. It is what it is. But you had to walk through the restaurant to get to the sports bar. Not my cup of tea. Cheaper beer than our hotel on the plus side. As a resort I don't know. !!

If you're looking for a resort close to the hustle and bustle of Albufeira new or old town, then this isn't for you. It's situated a 20-30 minute walk from the Marina (with kids) and a further 15 into the old town. However, if it's a beach you're after then there are a couple within a short walk and they... More

About 3 miles from nearest coastal town (Carvoeiro). Located in small modern village with a couple of eating places and a good bar. A good place from which to explore the area from Faro to Atlantic coast

Spent 2 weeks here in August with family. Really lovely with excellent facilities & friendly staff. Onsite restaurant is really good & great value . It's a little too far from Albuferia to walk but not too expensive in a taxi. Highly recommended for families

On the surface the resort looks good and the villa was nice.
