This is a beautiful refurbished hotel . Rooms great size , and we had a terrace balcony. Great bathroom. Breakfast is exceptional with plenty of choice and all very fresh .. choice of fruit great for me and my husband was happy with choice of eggs and omelettes Service was excellent at breakfast and some great staff ! The pool area was lovely but on the 3 days we spent there from 10.30 to 3.30 there were at least 8 sun beds with towels and bags on them that no one ever used .. please look at having staff remove this items after a certain amount of time as we would have loved to have used the soft comfy bed at the pool My husband used the gym but was disappointed that there was no water and nothing to clean or sanitise the gym equipment after use … some sanitising wipes would have been great . A manager actually came down to look as another guest complained but he looked around and left ! We would def return to this hotel as it’s in a fab location , breakfast excellent , beautiful views , bar area lovely . Peaceful and quiet and surrounding areas lovely with plenty of great restaurants

Firstly I need to mention that if you read previous honest reviews and read the hotels responses that will set the tone of the hotel. They are not only arrogant but extremely rude. We came here on honeymoon after getting married in the Algarve the previous week. We did not get the room we had booked which lead to a dismissive conversation with the “customer service” agent. She came to the door advising my husband hung up on her, which was bit the case. He asked this appalling employee “so there is nothing you can do” and the conversation ended. At our door she was obnoxious, typical from the Tivoli staff and suggested the new room like the room we had booked but it had single beds. I explained for the 3rd time we were on our honeymoon, and we were not taking twin beds. They did send up a bottle of wine and chocolates but this was not good enough at this stage! I am not one to complain but this hotel is not cheap and the way they discriminate against the normal people to the wealthy is very obvious. We work hard and wanted a nice honeymoon but thanks to this hotel we were stuffed into a small room, dealt with arrogance and rude staff all week even by the pool where we tried to order a glass of wine to be told “order off him” and the man walked away. We have stayed in the Anantara in Dubai which is a hotel apart of the chain. We never experienced anything like the service we experienced here. For any Honeymoon couples please do not stay here. You will be utterly disappointed. My advise would be to do an overhaul of your staff, stop arguing with customers on this platform when they tell the truth and provide training from the top down. Little things like not water provided except you pay €3 for a small bottle from the mini bar, and the receipt lion staff this morning providing no help with our 7 bags this morning. Disappointing is an understatement Tivoli

Just got back from a week here. We used it as a base for cycling which was ideal as the location was perfect to explore the area. There is an Intermarche 0.9 miles away. We had a 2 bed villa which was very spacious. Loved the separate lounge area and kitchen and of course a spare room. Yes it is dated and 1 of the beds was really noisy but was adequate for our needs. Villa Our villa faced the main road, which although seems small it was incredibly busy and we were disturbed every night, throughout the night by noisy traffic. There is a very small balcony area which didnt get the sun but the views were quite nice and you could see the sunrise. Food We were really disappointed, having stayed half board in many hotels of varying star ratings, this was by far the worst. Breakfast was childrens cereals (3 of), cold bacon, cold scrambled egg, toast, yoghurt, very watered down juices. Nice fruit salad, selection of cold meats and a cheese. It never changed. The evening meal was from a menu, hit and miss, most of the meat choices were tasteless and dry, the fish and lasagne were nice. I prefer a buffet style by choice. The waiting staff worked hard and were polite. Pool Outside pool was fantastic, plenty of sunbeds, large pool that didnt make your eyes sting or smell of chlorine. We didnt use the indoor pool. Wifi What wifi, there was none available in the villa and even when you went to the pool area or reception it was hit and miss. We needed it to upload our routes for the next day and it became an issue on occasion. There was no atmosphere at the hotel and I appreciate we came at the end of the season. I dont think we would stay here again sadly.

What can I say, it’s nice if a bit tired. I found the staff obnoxious at times and in some cases I felt we were intruding. During our visit there was a medical emergency, a cardiac arrest, two of our group are paramedics and dealt with it, we asked for a defibrillator and was told it was in reception, they didn’t go for it , just suggested we went, when we did we found they didn’t have one. I’m not writing this for praise or to suggest our group is special, but I felt we were treated with contempt after the incident, the staff seemed more concerned about any outcome reflecting badly on them rather than about the lack of any basic life support knowledge or equipment available on site. We enjoyed Portugal but the village may well be somewhere we don’t return to. In summary forget about the medical emergency and consider how you want to feel on holiday. It didn’t feel like a holiday.

Context - 12 night stay, family with 2 young teenagers in August We stayed in Villa 100, a 'luxury 2 bed townhouse' Accomodation: Great accomodation, some maintenance required, but not important. The accomodation was spacious, clean, beds were really comfortable, showers were great, loads of kitchen storage, sofas really comfortable, effective air com, kitchen with 4 burner hob, ovem, microwave, toaster, cofferr machine, washing machine and dryer. 5 star comfort, and nearly 5 star appearance (just a few maintenence piece needed ie chips in kitchen cupbaords, locks of bathrooms not aligned etc) Outside the accomodation we had 2 loungers, 4 would have been better, a table with 4 chairs with a few of a small pool. The pool near our villa was excellent. We generally were able to get this to ourselves at some points in the day, and there were always loungers available. This isn't the main pool. The main pool is a couple of minutes walk from the villa, and again excellent. it was quiet, but still an atmosphere, no problem getting loungers. On one day we had to hunt down an umbrella. There is also an indoor pool, that opens out to a terrace. Didn't think we'd use it, but it was really nice, and we used that as well. Useful when it's windy and the outdoor pool got chilly. The spa was good. My wife had a treatment that she said was very good. there was a steam room and sauna, both good, a small gym (didn't use). Jacuzzi was open, but didn't seem to work ie no bubbles! Outdoor pool bar was closed for refurb, but an indoor alternative was available. Restaurant was probably the biggest disappointment. We were self catering, used it once, and didn't return. The food was ok, but comparing it to the external restaurants we ate at, was nowhere near as good and significantly more expensive. Service in the restaurant was more comparable to a 3 star hotel. What was particularly disappointing was that 'portuguese' night was just a subset of the standard A la carte menu. Housekeeping were variable, ranging from spectacular to average! Some days they even unloaded our dishwasher which was a lovely touch. Other days they took away hand towels and didn't replace them. Resort did not have much to do for teenagers, other than making their own entertainment in the pool, but for us that was fine. Overall, a hotel is pleasant, lovely pool areas and accommodation is extremely comfortable but let down by the restaurant. Outside of the resort, in Carvoeiro we ate at 'Elliots' in the centre, and 'Recanto da Boavista' (2 minute walk from the hotel). Both of these restaurants were excellent, and catered well for my son who has a milk allergy. The other place we went to in Carvoeiro was Sandoskas. Again really good, but more cheap and cheerful. Whilst their bread contains milk, their baguettes don't, so hot dogs with baguette is a milk free option! The ice cream shop opposite also does a good range of vegan ice creams. Supermarkets are plen

The room is relatively new and clean. There are washing machines, dishwashers, and kitchens inside, so you can cook your own food, which is very cost-effective. It's just a bit far from the beach, you can't do it without a car, and it's not convenient to buy things around

An excellent location for a hotel, and now fully refurbished to a very nice 4 star hotel. We stayed here before the refurbishment, but now it has been done the hotel is so much more modern and ideal for visiting Carvoeiro. We stayed in a fantastic sea view room at the front, which was perfect for sitting on the balcony, having a drink, reading or a book or playing cards together. The restaurant was closed when we were there, so we were given breakfast vouchers to use at Jan or central. Both of these restaurants offered great breakfasts that were better than the buffet you used to get at the hotel! The addition of the rooftop bar is incredible, fantastic views, nice cocktails and great staff too. This hotel has always been perfectly located, but not it has been properly upgraded it is the ideal hotel in Carvoeiro!

We visited their Sky bar for the pupose of getting coffee and to check the place out, for a future stay. Although the hotel has had a recent revamp and looks nice and modern, we were very disappointed to be given a half empty cup of coffee. That which was in the cup was mostly froth. It was particularly annoying as we were charged €2.50 each, the most expensive coffee that we had in the Algarve. Then visited the toilets, nice tiles but no paper towel in the machine for drying hands. This hotel presents as a four star but does not live up to that expectation, in my opinion. We brought these issues to the attention of the reception manager but he just shrugged his shoulders at us. Obviously didn't care. This attitude, we thought, was completely unacceptable. So we will not be staying at this establishment.

We stayed at Placid Village for a week in early August, the complex is very welcoming and well maintained, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We always got a sunbed by the pool each day, there is no race in the morning and people come and go all day. I emailed a couple of weeks before our arrival to request an apartment on the top floor with a sea view (admittedly this is in the distance) and that is exactly what we got. We had a 3 bed apartment which was immaculate and very spacious, fully functional kitchen, two balconies, a real home from home and very well thought out. The walk into Carvoeiro takes around 10-15 minutes down the hill and usually got an Uber back up as cheap and plentiful. On the way into the town is a small mini market for essentials but if you want to do a main shop there are several supermarkets in Lagoa, (Intermarche, ALDI, Apolonia, Pingo Doce) which were less than 4euros each way by Uber if you don’t have a car. The only downside was one of the bedrooms had no hanging space of it’s own, just some drawers however there was a large wardrobe in the other two bedrooms and when we arrived nobody was in Reception, there is no call bell so just had to wait for Paulo to check us in which at the time felt like forever after you’ve been travelling for half a day to get there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Placid Village and would definitely return there again.

The location is a bit remote, suitable for self-driving or taxi people. There are no bus stops and restaurants around, and the nearest supermarket is just a few minutes drive away, which is very convenient. The room is large, the kitchen utensils and tableware are all available, there is no seasoning, but it is very good. Large space, everything in the room is very good, very satisfied, big praise

Go to the Benagil cave, about 10 minutes by car. The whole hotel is similar to a small resort. It was a bit similar to the one I stayed in Las Vegas. The living room is very large. I did not try the restaurant and the pool. The front desk was very welcoming and cost-effective.
- JUNCHAO
The resort is well equipped and has a great view. Although it is close to the Benagil cliff, it is far from the train station and it is hard to take a taxi. A taxi reservation is required when using the resort. Where everything was good except the location.

We spent over 15 days in Portugal on our honeymoon and had the misfortune of ending up at this hotel as our last stay in Portugal. I booked via *********** and to be honest, we were in a bit of a hurry so I did not check the reviews on trip advisor. Never again! We usually book boutique hotels as the experience is more personal and a lot more interactive in terms of getting to know someone who is local as well as other guests. Since this was our honeymoon and we were going to be in the Algarve as our last stop before heading back, I thought it would be a lovely surprise to indulge in some luxury and I booked this so called 4* hotel looking at the pictures the management would have posted. It was so bad, the pictures would tell the story. The place is filthy and not worthy of a single star. There is absoluetly no sense of hospitality. Check-in is at an odd 3 or 4 pm and untill then they make you wait without even so much so as offering water to drink. Anyway, we checked in and immediately there was a foul smell in the bathroom. We informed them and the next hour was spent in getting the sink and the shower area de-clogged. In the meantime, we see large holes in the bedsheet! We inform the staff and they ask us what do we want them to do! Also, I had messaged them a month ago, at the time of booking that we would prefer a double bed - they said there are no double beds in the entire hotel and they would have a double bedsheet over the joined single beds, but this was also not done when we checked in and neither was it done when they changed the bedsheet nor the next day. This isn't where the horror story ends, there were bugs in the room, the little kitchenette had so much dust and grime accumulating for god knows how many months and there was cracked wood with dust everywhere you would look, water seepage and rotting wood and carpets. Take a look at the pictures and you'll realize without even being there what a dungen of a place this is and the worst thing is nobody cares. We checked out a day earlier and at the time we were leaving, the staff on the reception said ”I hope all was well with your stay”! Despite multiple complaints, no one bothered to come to the room to even see how we were managing. Unfortunately we had a boat tour and hike planned on day 2, which is why we didnt check out the same evening we checked in. We were being charged over 200 Euros a night and they didn't even give us a bottle of water. When we asked, they said we give one (50cl) bottle of water when you check in. No matter how many days you're staying with them! On the second evening, when I said the room wasn't cleaned yet, they said we first start with the rooms that would have guests checking in and then come to others and by 5pm it will definately be done. Even after 6pm, no one showed up and after repeated reminders, they started cleaning the room at 6:20. Yet, it was as dirty as you can see in the pictures - ones with the dust and grime around the kitchenette,

We were a party of 3 girls and we stayed at the Carvoeiro Hotel for 4 nights. We had a super experience and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Our room was very spacious with really comfortable beds. The staff couldn't have been nicer, so helpful and always pleasant in particular Sandra, Beatrice, Jose and Diogo. The breakfast was excellent and the Tuna Salad on the lunch menu was particularly good. We had such a lovely few days and would recommend this hotel.

I felt compelled to leave a review for this resort as it was one of the best I have stayed in and I thoroughly recommend it. We were a family of 4 and stayed in a 3 bedroom villa with our own pool. The wonderful experience started before we even arrived at the booking stage. The hotel were extremely helpful and even booked our transfers from and to the airport. We arrived on our first day a couple of hours delayed. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful and arranged for the diner to stay open to provide us with some food. My family are quite fussy eaters so the restaurant was a bit much for us so we stuck with pizza. Our villa was quite far from reception so one of the reception team drove us there in a golf buggy of sorts. This was very welcome after travelling most of the day and with all our cases. The villa itself was perfect. As soon as you walk in you are greeted with a giant open plan living space leading on to the bedrooms (all with ensuite) and kitchen (totally kitted out ) and seperate utility area. Then out to the garden area with a large pool with steps for easy access in and out. Six comfortable loungers, Dining table and 6 chairs. The pool was also accessible from the downstairs bedrooms which was great for my boys to go in and out without getting the whole villa wet. When you arrive you are sent several Whatsapp messages which provide all the information you need on the resort including restaurant details, transport to nearly beaches, spa and much more. The Whatsapp link to reception was one of the best things as on several occassions we were able to get reception to book us taxis and answer general queries. On one occasion we contacted reception to see if they could bring something to get rid of the ants which kept appearing which they did straight away. On another occassion after coming back from the nearby town at about 10pm our air conditioning was not working so i contacted the front desk and someone was at our villa before i got down the stairs. Issue fixed straight away. There is a little train that you can hop on at reception which takes you to the nearby town which we did on a few occassions. Totally free. You can also get the same train back so saved a few quid on taxis. In summary superb accomodation, super friendly staff and fabulous facilites. Cant wait to stay again.

First time in Carvoeiro & the Rocha Brava. Lovely atmosphere from the time we arrived - welcoming staff who guided us to our apartment and offered to help with the luggage. This is a huge resort with many apartments. We right beside Kids Club and a short walk across the carpark to the pool area. Apartment was 2 bedrooms, one ensuite and one bathroom. Huge living area space with sofa, 2 arm chairs and dining table with 4 comfy chairs. Kitchen was small but had coffee machine, microwave, food processor, dish washer and ample utensils and kitchenware. There was a washing machine in a little room outside the front door. We were left some washing powder, washing up liquid, tea, coffee, sugar & milk. The apartment also had with two balconies (one for clothes horse). The bedrooms were both a great size, had bedside tables and a decent wardrobe with plenty of hangers. Air conditioning units were very good also. Cleaning service of the apartment and outdoors areas was faultless. Met a lovely Irish lady from Tipperary who has been working at the Rocha Brava for years. On site facilities - supermarket, Coffee Shop/casual restaurant & pool bar all very good and not a total rip off. Preferred on site supermarket to the Spar. The white wine sangria was the best we had all holiday at the pool bar. Three different pool areas. The Ocean View Pool & Country Pool were much quieter but both had kids pools attached. Main pool area was great and there was no holding of sun loungers. Sonia monitors the pool area and gives out a new band to guests every day. She will tell you not to be keeping sun loungers and watch your kids etc. I would recommend that the hotel give out weekly bands instead. The main pool is much deeper at one end and I found it hard to watch the kids in the shallow end of the pool and also the kids pool. There is a large pool behind the main pool which is very deep - I think the hotel are missing an opportunity with this. It might be an option to have this as a shallow pool also. Must mention Macy in Kids Club - very accommodating and good to the kids. My daughter didn't want to leave Kids Club. Different activities everyday. Playground & mini golf on site also. Cannot wait to return again.

AMAZING! I will 100% return to Hello Villas. The pool is a great size and the pool bar has a simple menu with sandwiches, pizza, chips and drinks and is reasonably priced too. There is a barrier and porter at the entrance/exit so it felt very safe with children. Just a 10 min walk to the centre where there are plenty of places to eat and drink and shop. The walk is steep so coming back up takes a little longer and would be a challenge with a buggy or small kids/older travellers but the taxi cost around €4/€5 which we took at night and walked in the morning. The beach is stunning, the coastline is amazing and there are plenty of place to walk where you will see something different every time. We climbed through caves and jumped into the ocean and swam in cave pools. We had the 2 bed villa which was huge. Came with a washing machine and everything you could need. Beds covers and towels were changed regularly and the villa cleaned. We stayed 10 night and could have stayed 10 more

Just got back from a week here. We used it as a base for cycling which was ideal as the location was perfect to explore the area. There is an Intermarche 0.9 miles away. We had a 2 bed villa which was very spacious. Loved the separate lounge area and kitchen and of course a spare room. Yes it is dated and 1 of the beds was really noisy but was adequate for our needs. Villa Our villa faced the main road, which although seems small it was incredibly busy and we were disturbed every night, throughout the night by noisy traffic. There is a very small balcony area which didnt get the sun but the views were quite nice and you could see the sunrise. Food We were really disappointed, having stayed half board in many hotels of varying star ratings, this was by far the worst. Breakfast was childrens cereals (3 of), cold bacon, cold scrambled egg, toast, yoghurt, very watered down juices. Nice fruit salad, selection of cold meats and a cheese. It never changed. The evening meal was from a menu, hit and miss, most of the meat choices were tasteless and dry, the fish and lasagne were nice. I prefer a buffet style by choice. The waiting staff worked hard and were polite. Pool Outside pool was fantastic, plenty of sunbeds, large pool that didnt make your eyes sting or smell of chlorine. We didnt use the indoor pool. Wifi What wifi, there was none available in the villa and even when you went to the pool area or reception it was hit and miss. We needed it to upload our routes for the next day and it became an issue on occasion. There was no atmosphere at the hotel and I appreciate we came at the end of the season. I dont think we would stay here again sadly.

Go to the Benagil cave, about 10 minutes by car. The whole hotel is similar to a small resort. It was a bit similar to the one I stayed in Las Vegas. The living room is very large. I did not try the restaurant and the pool. The front desk was very welcoming and cost-effective.

We stayed at Placid Village for a week in early August, the complex is very welcoming and well maintained, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We always got a sunbed by the pool each day, there is no race in the morning and people come and go all day. I emailed a couple of weeks before our arrival to request an apartment on the top floor with a sea view (admittedly this is in the distance) and that is exactly what we got. We had a 3 bed apartment which was immaculate and very spacious, fully functional kitchen, two balconies, a real home from home and very well thought out. The walk into Carvoeiro takes around 10-15 minutes down the hill and usually got an Uber back up as cheap and plentiful. On the way into the town is a small mini market for essentials but if you want to do a main shop there are several supermarkets in Lagoa, (Intermarche, ALDI, Apolonia, Pingo Doce) which were less than 4euros each way by Uber if you don’t have a car. The only downside was one of the bedrooms had no hanging space of it’s own, just some drawers however there was a large wardrobe in the other two bedrooms and when we arrived nobody was in Reception, there is no call bell so just had to wait for Paulo to check us in which at the time felt like forever after you’ve been travelling for half a day to get there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Placid Village and would definitely return there again.

Just came back from this hotel we stayed for 3 nights and it was great. We were lucky and got warmer than usual weather for this time of the year but air conditioning all around hotel and rooms was great. Large outdoor pool and small jacuzzi beside it, also an indoor pool and hottub. The water in the pool was bloody freezing but was still great, has a swim up bar which serves great cocktails and meals, can sometimes be a bit of a wait but cocktails are all made from scratch not from a machine and the food served is lovely and fresh and made to order. Some items and cocktails are more on the pricier side so buying drinks from the local supermarket is ideal. Breakfast in the morning was consistently brilliant, so much selection of fruits, pastries, and hot foods as well as cereals and the hot drinks from the machines are surprisingly very nice. Rooms are slightly dated but not an issue at all, very clean and comfortable with a large balcony. Although the hotel and staff are great theres a few small issues but not anything major and wouldn’t put us off going back. The hairdryers being the main issue. Probably the worst hotel hairdryer i have ever witnessed so BRING YOUR OWN HAIRDRYER and thank me later. The beds could do with being replaced as very very creaky but the mattress pillows duvet comfortable and clean. The minimarket up the hill from hotel is expensive so walk into the town and go to bom dia supermercado for much cheaper water, snacks etc. The area has loads of bars shops and restaurants to choose from, a lovely beach in the area and the views are great. This hotel is at the top of a very steep street so if you have mobility issues this may not be ideal unless you are willing to get a taxi to the top every night as the footpaths are also cobbled and tend to be blocked by cars. If you want to go elsewhere for a night, an uber into Albufeira will cost between 18-25€ per way but the drive is over half an hour so in my opinion a very fair price. All in all a great hotel in a lovely area and would definitely recommend!

An excellent location for a hotel, and now fully refurbished to a very nice 4 star hotel. We stayed here before the refurbishment, but now it has been done the hotel is so much more modern and ideal for visiting Carvoeiro. We stayed in a fantastic sea view room at the front, which was perfect for sitting on the balcony, having a drink, reading or a book or playing cards together. The restaurant was closed when we were there, so we were given breakfast vouchers to use at Jan or central. Both of these restaurants offered great breakfasts that were better than the buffet you used to get at the hotel! The addition of the rooftop bar is incredible, fantastic views, nice cocktails and great staff too. This hotel has always been perfectly located, but not it has been properly upgraded it is the ideal hotel in Carvoeiro!
