There are both good and bad points about this hotel. Firstly may I say the staff on the whole are very welcoming and helpful, the hotel itself however is definitely not a 5* or at least not by UK standards.

Having read previous reviews, we were expecting a wonderful stay with excellent facilities. Those expectations were quickly dashed on the very first night. We arrived just after 9pm, check in was no problem, very friendly staff. Got out of the lift on the 2nd floor, first impression was that carpet was grubby, entered our room, good size bed, two doubles...

Very impressed with hotel and staff right from start. We had to wait for our room as we had arrived before check in time. The receptionist, Nella, was great and when we returned she had arranged for the luggage to be taken to our room on the 4th floor. This room was really nice with a great view over Olhao,...
