Rain for most of early part of the week excluded use of the pool but it looked good, only marred by leaves and debris from nearby trees. Groundsman/pool guy worked every day regardless of weather keeping all areas neat and tidy. Pool pump not used for most of week (? fault) so build up of debris made the pool uninviting. However.... Mozzies! Probably due to surrounding trees, grass and field with goats and chickens next door. Several nearby supermarkets including Aldi. Purchased a plug-in mozzie killer and no further problems within the apartment. Kitchen reasonably equipped with good size fridge and microwave, however NO OVEN! No pizzas or grill facility! Plenty of hot water at all times of the day. Went to visit several restaurants listed in local guides and recommended by friends, but found most were closed! Maybe out of season (visited early April). Apartment recommended for a fairly quiet stay with spectacular views to the north from well kept mature gardens.
My brother and I stayed at this hotel this week. It is a perfect location right in front of Praia Da Rocha beach, and there are plenty of restaurants too. Back to the hotel - the room was cleaned daily, the beds were really comfortable and liked the rain shower head too (those minor details count a lot). We even used the gym twice (basic but quality machines). Breakfast buffet was also good, lots of variety to suit all tastes (continental, English, American etc). The staff were quick to solve problems, when we had problems with the safe in the room, I rang reception and within a few minutes someone came to fix it. The swimming pool is small but with the beach right across the road it's not hard to decide which to choose from! All in all, a lovely hotel.
We booked a Kayacking tour of local caves through Hotel reception, this was an excellent tour, very good value for money. Zoomarine is relatively good but nothing major, if you've been to Seaworld you won't be overly impressed as there's no comparison between the two, shows and rides at Seaworld are much better. Dolphin show is good but the rest were disappointing.
Have just returned from a lovely stay at Clube Humbria. Food is lovely with a good choice for non meat eaters like me. Staff very friendly and snacks in all inclusive have a good choice. Rooms comfortable - more of a mini apartment and very spacious and bright. Albufeira a short taxi ride away but there is a local beach and shops to look around.
Only two downsides are pillow was very hard and the pool is absolutely freezing. However, would def recommend and thinking of return next Year. Loved it here !!!!!
Lovely hotel away from Carvorio but only 6 euro taxi ride to center of town. We went B&B only as the food in the town is excellent and much better than hotel food. Great Italian down the road 5 mins walk.
Rooms are excellent and have everything you need. Rooms are 5 star. However, rest of the hotel is 3 star. Buts that's ok because you pay 3 star prices. Many reviews on here want 5 star for peanuts. I went to this hotel 6 years ago when it was new and it was 5star then. It's tired now but the price has not increased in fact it's cheaper. Fair play
I had a great time. Fabio the bar man is great
