Very quiet area of the Algarve, that's why we go there. Not going to rave too much because we don't want everybody flooding there! But we have been twice this year and will go again next year.

Hotel is quite large made up of a main building lots of satellite buildings to the west. On the coast but not on the beach you have to cross a narrow strip of water by a little ferry, which is free, to get to the main beach. This beach is 7k long and is pure clean sand.

The entertainment is very professional and is performed in an outside arena facing the sea with the hotel behind so if you do not want entertaining it is not intrusive and cannot be heard if you stay in your apartment.

Holidayed at the Golden Club 25/7 - 8/8 on Self Catering basis

The Ria apartments are basic but kept clean. All have air conditioning requiring a 100 Euro refundable deposit (can use credit card for this).

A fantastic new free form pool is situated in an adjoining complex. The pool is great for kids, having a large shallow area and non-slip tiles all around.

Plenty of poolside activities ...aquarobics, water polo, volleyball, tennis.

Cabannas is quiet but with plenty of good value places to eat out. Nearby Tavira is very traditional and picturesque.

A short boat ride to the nearby offshore beach is a novel and enjoyable experience.

The only down side we found was the smell from a nearby water treatment plant at one end of the apartment building but this was not noticable elsewhere. Some of the paving around the apartments was uneven so some care is needed with small children.

Car hire with was much cheaper than local offers.

Just got back from a week at this hotel.

Very pleasant place to stay for a family break. A quiet suntan holiday. Complex has large pool. Very nice and the apartments have a garden around it.

The hotel is on the seafront and you have to cross a river by boat to get to the sea. We did a few trips. Seville, Spain is not far over the border (2hrs drive) also the jeep safari (not as good as Gran Canaria / less to see, less stunning views.) However there is local towns Faro and Tavara which have places to explore.

I'd say it's ideal for one week = two weeks if you bring your own entertainment. The down sides : The lift has no inside door - theres a rubbish zoo place 1m at the back of the hotel. You have to pay for air conditioning units - a deposit you get returned.

A nice place to stay and a better one than most. You'd have to pay a lot more and stay at Villa Moura resort to get better. Theres a train that links you to the rest of the coastal towns that's dirt cheap too.

Enjoy a stay here.
