We were four sisters in our sixties. We got very nice rooms. However, it was disappointing not to have twin beds. Though the beds were very big, we felt it was strange to have to share a bed. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. They always greeted us with a smile and friendly words. the availability of three swimming pools and the proximity to the sea ensured that we got our daily exercise. That said the sea was a bit too cold and strong for us to have a good swim in it. The food at the hotel was excellent. It was very easy to get to the harbour by taxi and avail of the wonderful restaurants in Alvor.
