We stayed here for a week in December and it was very quiet. The reception and bar/restaurant staff were very welcoming and always had a smile on their faces when we saw them. The room was spacious with parts a little tired looking but we were using the hotel as a base so we

Just back from a week at this apart hotel. Our first impressions as we arrived at reception was that it looked very nice, quite modern and well presented. We checked in, no chit chat from the man assisting us, no welcome to our hotel or any other form of pleasantries. We were

Do they have any evening entertainment for adults
In addition to the answers provided already, there are several great traditional restaurants within 10 - 25 minutes walk. Taxis and local buses are cheap and there is a good waterpark and great sand sculpture park within a short ride away. Gale is a much quieter resort than Albufeira (we prefer Gale) but you can easily spend a day in Albufeira for a bit more 'excitement'?

The food is good but I think it best to try some of the other restaurants in the vicinity for a bit more variety.

Is a good beach nearby? How far, would you say?
Superb beach is a 5 minute stroll away. It is down hill but a very gentle slope.

"Ask for a comfier third bed as my son found the small bed almost unsleepable"
"Even numbered rooms have a pool view odd numbered a sea view"
"Asked for sea view side !"
"Rooms have seaview but not all"
"Beds are very firm, there is a coffee maker but no kettle, however, you can request from reception subject to availabilty (might be worth trying to book in advance during busy periods if this is an essential for you) but otherwise comfortable and clean."
