We booked a 4 night stay last minute via the hotel website. Pre booking communication with the resort was excellent, and they emailed in advance to ask for special requests. All the staff was super attentive, polite and helpful. The grounds of the resort are well manicured and immaculate and I'll be curious to check in a few years time, how the all vegetation and plants have grown and blended with the resort. The room was outstanding, definitely boutique feel and super luxurious. We pick this resort in particular, as we wanted to cook our own meals, and the kitchen area of the room had all the kitchenware, including nice wine glasses, and gadgets to make lavish meals. We did look at the prices of the restaurant, however, we felt they were extraordinary inflated. The menu looked nice though but definitely an experience to have in a special occasion/celebration. The bed and pillows in the bedroom were super comfortable and we had very good night sleeps. The all room is stunningly decorated, from curtains, towels, throws and cushions, not to mention a clean and practical bathroom. We did not used the pool or spa, as we spend our all stay in the beach, a mere 5 minutes walk from the resort. Also, at a short distance, you can find a big supermarket (10min walking), and many restaurants, bars and cafés. There were some small issues during our stay, expected in a brand new resort but nothing that affected our overall experience. I will be curious to see what happens with this resort in the coming years, as places like this that are so luxurious and high end, are normally not affordable to me. However, I hope they keep their prices as they are so that I can come back year after year.

This brand new hotel will no doubt be hugely popular in the coming months and years if they keep doing what they’re doing. The attentiveness of the staff and service was superb - Beatriz on Reception was a star. The architecture and apartment layouts and facilities were classy and chic. The pool was refreshing which was much needed as the weather during our stay was well in the 30s. Cleanliness and attention to covid rules was excellent, we felt safe at all times. The hotel arranged a boat trip for us from Portimao on a sun boat (powered by solar energy) which showcased the stunning coastline and they were happy to book us tables at the two local fish restaurants, both of which have the freshest fish on offer. We moved on to a much bigger resort and already miss the outstanding breakfast bread basket (kids couldn’t wait to get stuck in every morning!), fresh orange juice and spacious balconies on our apartment! Thank you for making it such a great stay!

After spending 2 weeks in Portugal we came across White shells on a booking site . I'm so happy that we did ! It has been by far our BEST 5 days in Portugal. The resort is new and that will come with a teething phase but the staff go out of there way to sort out any little niggle that one might encounter in a brand new resort . From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like royalty. Walter took our luggage to our well equipped apartment ( AEG large appliances and SMEG small appliances) and we settled in with an evening cocktail. A relaxing night was had by all as we snoozed the night away in crisp linen . Next day we spent lazing in the sun at the resorts pool where Karla took great care of us by never letting us go thirsty !! There is in indoor &out door pool , Jacuzzi , Turkish steam bath and a small but well equipped gym and Spa . White Shells is a 500 metre walk to 2 beautiful beaches but we hardly left the resort as it was just BLISS !! Can't wait to return next year !

We stayed in a brand new unit, so everything was crisp and fresh and luxurious. The unit was spacious with 2 balconies for great outdoor eating and drinking and suntanning. We had a sea view from the top floor. The beds and linen were top drawer stuff and the equipment was SMEG and AEG. The unit even had a dishwasher and washing machine. Remember to bring your own detergents. The staff was attentive to our every need, even after hours. The pool and spa and gym facilities were delightful. We were within walking distance from 2 wonderful beaches. We enjoyed our stay from the first moment, and we'll be back.
