There is a balcony or terrace attached to each apartment so you will always have somewhere private to sit and soak up the Algarve sun.

What have previous guests said?
Previous guests of this charming complex have commented on how peaceful and relaxing their stay was and how spacious the apartments themselves are. A Dutch visitor recently described the hotel complex as a “beautiful and quiet place to stay” and noted that, despite being a quiet and restful place to sleep, the hotel is extremely close to the larger resorts of Tavira and Olhao. This is ideal for those that want a relaxing break but still like to have plenty to do when they are feeling active.
A number of previous guests have suggested that renting a car is a good option as this allows visitors to explore the eastern Algarve more fully and enjoy a wide range of day trips and excursions to nearby attractions. Those that like to get out and really explore their surroundings may find that a rental car provides that extra freedom, although the public transport links are well-developed.
