Last Minute break
My wife and I booked to go to the Algarve the day before we travelled and we got a last minute b&b deal at the Carvoeiro Sol. Having read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor we were a little concerned about what to expect but were pleased at what we found. Fellow guests in rooms by the roadside commented on the noise levels during the night as it is a very lively spot and the Hotel is bang in the middle of it, so to speak, but we got a room overlooking the pool which was absolutely fine. A/c was very welcome due to temperature and humidity levels. En suite facilities were excellent and water pressure for the shower was superb. Breakfast was buffet-style but comprehensive and you could choose from hot dishes through cold meat or cheese with rolls, bread and croissants and was much better than we’d expected. Location is absolutely first-class with the beach and a myriad of restaurants and bars literally yards away.
The pool was unheated and surprisingly cool given the air temperatures in the high 20s every day, but a very pleasant spot to relax indeed and there was a poolside bar which served snacks and drinks but we felt that the catering options could have been somewhat bettered to encourage the residents from going elsewhere at lunchtime!
s some fellow travellers have commented, the number of rated ‘stars’ seems high, but on balance, a comfortable hotel in the very heart of a lively resort.
After many hours we finally returned home at approximately 3.30 am on Sunday morning!! On behalf of Miss Evans and myself, we would like to thank you all for a most enjoyable stay at your Hotel last week.
It was our first visit to Portugal and a thoroughly enjoyable experience, made even more so, by being able to stay in your super Hotel. It more than met our needs. Our room (121) was quiet and comfortable.
Breakfast was all that we wished for, the Swimming Pool was relaxing and the delights of Carvoeiro were on the doorstep.
In closing, our sincerest thanks to you all for making our short stay such a pleasant experience.
Always a Favourite
Imagine if you will, waking to the sound of seagulls and drawing back the curtains to reveal another cloudless sky over turquoise waves breaking gently onto the pristine beach where a few small traditional fishing boats are drawn up close to the beach side restaurants. Leaving your air conditioned room, you venture down to an excellent buffet style breakfast in the courtyard before walking across the tessalated marble square to take a seat and watch as the restaurants and bars start to open up and make ready for another day of ensuring you make the most of your holiday. Children play contentedly in the square and on the sand and the smell of freshly grilled sardines makes you realise that you have been completely relaxed for longer than you had thought possible when you first boarded the plane just a couple of days ago. This is Carvoeiro and you have only walked 30 paces from the front door of the Carvoeiro Sol Hotel. Perhaps you will relax by the hotel pool this afternoon, a glass of ice cold beer from the poolside bar helping you to plan your evening’s entertainment. Will you eat at one of the many excellent Restaurants within walking distance, or will you watch the evenings entertainment in the square? Tomorrow it could be a 10 minute taxi ride to the Aquapark, or to one of several excellent Golf courses within 10 Km of the hotel, who knows – the fact is that this superb, well run hotel, complemented by friendly staff and set in a prime location on the Algarve coast less than an hours travel from Faro Airport is the perfect place to take your next holiday.
A Good Base for a short gateway
Enjoyed our visit immensely. the staff were very freindly and helpful. Breakfast was splendid. Lovely room had 2 balconies. Wish we had eaten dinner there but so much choice in village.
