6/10 Good

This property is not 5* - it’s very tired in places. Terrible food, menu options. Service is dreadful. Lucky to even get a lounger by the pool area where people pollute the air with smoke and discarded cigarette butts. A lot of the loungers were broken, internet access was poor. Overall very disappointing.

The property is in the heart of city center. That makes a lot of things convenient. The staff was super helpful and the room was really nice. The room decoration was really interesting, creative and artistic. We enjoyed our stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Beautiful, refreshing pool. Nice decor. Breakfast was good. I did not have a sea view, but instead faced the back east, a supposed “city view”. This is where a new residential building is currently in the first stages of construction. It could be noisy and is certainly not gorgeous, but there is so much to do in Olhão and environs, this was not really a problem. Apparently, the rooms on the other back side can be noisy at night due to harbour side cafes and bars with loud music. I turned the ac down to 18, but it was definitely not 18. Comfortable though, so maybe it was preset? The breakfast was extensive. The town is the main draw. Within easy walking distance. I loved it best of all the towns I visited on the Algarve.

I love this place, have been visiting for many years. However this year our balcony was unusable. There's major building works happening next door. Fine if the windows and curtains are closed. Would have appreciated being warned about this and perhaps we would have selected a different room!!

Nice but not 5*
Nice hotel but not worthy of 5 stars. its more like a standard 4* hotel. The reception staff were very miserable not very friendly or smiley. The breakfast was mediocre. Rooms were nice but basic. No mini bar you have to choose what you want and pay in advance so basically like a room service. Room service food was nice
