A vast aparthotel with a choice of board including an all-inclusive option. There are many steps in the grounds, many of which have no handrail, which may prove difficult for the less able.
Some areas of the buildings appear a little jaded and in need of a coat of paint and the colour schemes are in some places somewhat gaudy to say the least. Attracts a wide range of clientele with families mixing well with more mature guests.
A rambling and rather mundane looking building composed of four beige and pink coloured irregular blocks with many connecting paths and sets of stairways. A large communal area is situated around d the main entrance and beside the pool with a dining area midway between the two.

A vast and airy lobby has lime green coloured seating and a busy looking, wide reception desk. A bar area has a small stage and dance floor.
A smart restaurant is situated in a separate building and has neat tableware and amenable decor. A canteen like self-service restaurant has colourful plastic tables and chairs with a terrace overlooking the pool.
The extensive gardens are home to an abundance of lush vegetation and trees with each area connected by numerous steps. The many flowerbeds and shrubs add much colour and interest.
A pool area at the sea facing end of the grounds has a pleasantly arranged surround but this may become crowded in the peak season. The 2 children’s pools are of a fair size and splendid sea views are possible from the pool area.
Area Type: Situated at the bottom of a lane leading down from the main coast road mid way between Old Albufeira and Balaia. There are other smaller properties in the immediate vicinity with a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants some 800m away towards the ‘Strip’.
