Nice hotel in an area that isn't loud and overcrowded. Quiet area of the Algarve but apparently up and coming. I enjoyed the fact that it was quiet. The hotel is not huge and had a wonderful buffet restaurant that had everything to cater for all tastes. I do not eat fish and

If this was just a review about the hotel, I would give it 5/5. It’s very clean, the staff are lovely, the food is great and the pool and garden are beautifully maintained. Unfortunately, Thomas Cook is in charge of all the entertainment at the hotel, and this is where they

Hi There, I haven't been to Malta in March but a friend of mine lives there. It will be around 17 Degrees, sunny most of the time with a 25% of rain. I would bring light layers so yo can take off and add, t-shirts and cardigans, you will not need a heavy coat. It might not be beach weather but you could get lucky. If you are staying in a hotel with a pool, people will be sitting around the pool, if the pool is heated you might take a dip but if it's not it might be chilly, but someone people swim in the pool and the sea all year round. It's a beautiful place, take a boat trip and visit the city. Enjoy

Hiya, I guess it depends on what sort of holiday you are looking for. If you are looking for a resort based holidays and not a city break, the Canaries will be warm (Grand Canarias and South Tenerife will be the warmest) Cape Verde is also really warm but not much going on outside of the hotels. Costa Del Sol in main land Spain can also be warm but prone to a cloudy days in April. Portugal will still be warm but not as warm as the other places mentioned and may be chilly in March. I've travelled extensively over Europe and used to work in Travel, feel free to ask any question.

Hi There, There are 2 pools, the main pool is quite deep, there is also a very small little round pool which is suitable to younger children. If you are looking for a large very shallow pool where little ones can happily play in this is not the hotel for you but in staying that My family had a great time here.
