    The buffet meals were ok, quite a bit of choice but some of the food in the afternoon was not as hot as it should be and the sandwiches were getting quite dry

    There was no entertainment in the Hotel which was a shame

    the bed were very comfortable. rooms spacious and clean. buffets were decent enough, especialy good danish pastrys at breakfast.

    the staff were not helpfull.. at all. (except 2 girls, one at breakfast buffet and one at bar, who were friendly) the man in the spa was exceptionaly rude and sent us in to the spa without mentioning that hats were a nessesity and needed to be purchased with cash only at the spa, resulting in having to get back dressed again, return to room, get cash, return to pool to find the man gone and had to wait more than 15mins for him to return before we could re enter spa. and upon arriving to dinner, the lady cheaking our room numbers told one girl in my group that she would need to put on a jumper as her top was too low cut!!! (it was no more reveling that many other women already in the dining room) she declared this in a very rude way, not friendly or apologetic in the slightest. i have stayed in 2 star hotels that have much MUCH better staff.

    We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite which was huge with luxurious bathrooms and a huge lounge area! Myself and 4 friends stayed there with an extra bed in the living room which was fine! Restaurant was very nice and lots of drinks to choose from as well as 3 Huge pools :)

    The staff were slightly rude at times but the receptionists were excellent and really helpful to order Taxis into Albufeira etc.
