Great small scale resort with exceptionalle friendly staff. Clean, convenient, no nonsense. Basic pool, but good enough for small kids. Easy to keep oversight and appartement conveniently close to pool. Also very nice beach at walking distance
Everything was great. Spotlessly clean. Apartment very comfortable. Only negative is I'd wished I'd upgrade because our apartment was very good but the outlook wasn't great and balcony was so small to be effectively useless.
This was our first visit to Portugal and wont be the last !! The staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and courteous. Lovely quiet location. The restaurant food was amazing as were the pool snacks. The rooms were spacious, clean & tidy with maid service every day if required. Loved it here & will definitely be back. Loved it !!!
Comfortable apartment but with old kitchen equipment. Internet with bad connection and speed. The gym is not well equipped and very small. The sauna seems to be abandoned and with a lot of killed mosquitos on the ground. I was charged for the consumption of water, electricity, and gas of about 80 euros.
Cleanliness left something to be desired (or lack of it). When we arrived we saw the cleaning maids without a mask. The room was not ready, the sofa bed should have been open since we were 2 adults and a child and the room had 2 beds + sofa bed. The room was only prepared for a couple and not for our reservation. The bed still has hair, it doesn't even look like the sheets have been changed. Definitely not a 4*!! It's pretty outdated! The entire hotel looks outdated and seems to lack maintenance. I didn't expect this from a Pestana!!
What a fabulous little gem this place is. We were given a free upgrade from a studio to an apartment on arrival. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The restaurant is not owned by the hotel, but is owned privately and the space rented to them by the complex. The food is fabulous and very reasonably priced. The complex itself is very clean and tidy with maid service every day except Sunday. I will definitely be visiting the place again.
A good quality quiet timeshare with fabulous views. Very comfortable for two couples in two bedroom and two bathroom apartment. Some of the furniture had marks and stains on but overall this i=did not detract from experience. Great beach a short walk away and fabulous restaurant on site.
We had an awesome experience at Palm Gardens: it is worth paying more fore that ocean view, especially facing sunrise as it is extraordinary- even in stormy days as we got. All green, super clean, manicure garden and nice people and social caffe at Sat @ Tal -what else do you need?
We stayed for 3 nights at a studio apartment. Large room with a sofa bed. The kitchen was also large and very well equipped. The bathroom was rather small compared to the rest of the studio. Staff was very helpful and I also recommend the restaurant. We had dinner there on night and the food was delicious. My only recommendation: more signage leading to the hotel. You need GPS or Waze to get to the hotel.
It is a well cared for property with lovely grounds and sea views. Quiet and relaxing. The units are comfy and well equipped. Good WiFi. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was regularly cleaned. A great base to explore the Western Algarve or just enjoy the view.
