      Nice pool and friendly restaurant and bar staff.

      Beds hard. Furnishings basic.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      spacious rooms, nice veranda, nice pool & sunbathing area

      Breakfast poor (only tried it once). Bar very basic, could be better

    • Group of friends

      Room 107 was the worst I have stayed in for a very long time and it was vastly overpriced.I have stayed in the villas before and they were fine but after this experience I will not be returning to the Ponta Grande.

      The room and the price of booking a tennis court.We took our own equipment and were still charged 10 euro.

    • Group of friends

      Very good location but need the car to move around. Beach is not far away but not walking distance and albufeira centre too, need the car to go. It can be a nice holiday with family with kids, place itself was not wow!! But a simple summer resort. It always depends in what someone is looking for. Breakfast was good and hotel personnel helpful at any time. I enjoyed my stay.

    • Couple

      The staff were polite and helpful. The pool area and the bar are nice and the atmosphere is generally friendly.

      The room was not very clean and the beds were not made! There was no bath mat, the shower curtain was not clean and there was no hairdryer or shampoo etc. We also had to wait more than an hour to get the room key despite arriving well after the specified check-in time of 16:00.

    • Family with children

      It was too far out of the town.. there was six of us, 3 adults and 3 children and we had to get 2 taxi's in and out each day to old town. It turn out to be an expensive holiday as we did not budget for this. There was no access to a beach, the nearest one 45 minute walk without lugging kids.

      The resort was excellent - location, friendly staff, activities, pool, price

      there's no staff after midnight and only security

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Very spacious apartment, fully equipped kitchen, nice swimming pool. Good place to stay for more than two nights, as we did.

      Problems with wifi in the lobby. High prices in the bar.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      It was quiet and the pool was lovely. The villa was excellent.

      We had bought vouchers for breakfast , but the food left much to be desired, so we went elsewhere to eat. Also, having a family of five proved difficult at a resort which was outside the main town, as we had to take taxis every evening in order to eat and taxis for five were thin on the ground!

      Spa services

      Availabilty to spend more days.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Quiet lovely setting, good for the chill out we needed.

      Having to check in and out over a mile away, as the reception at the apartments is not open was annoying, especially as we had to pay for extra taxis to do this. We did experience at least 2 hours disruption a day around lunch time from local teenagers / young adults using the pool as their playgroung which was annoying. The bedroom door had been screwed open as the track was damaged, which meant it was a studio apartment and not the 1 bedroom apartment it should have been.
