Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Perfumes! The Quinta is very quiet, peaceful and calm but well located for a 20 minute walk into Cabanas which is a smashing low key resort with nice restaurants. We tended to walk out in the evening when it was light, parts are unlit on your way home but we used our phone torches on our way back and always felt safe when heading out from the back gate by the railway crossing.
A couple of evenings we got the train (20 minutes walk) into Tavira which has some excellent restaurants.
The train line cuts through the property but was no problem at all for us, trains are not that often and do not run through the night.
The Covid19 procedures at the hotel were excellent and well observed by both staff & guests.
Breakfast was delicious with top quality food and great orange juice (as expected)! Breakfast is pre ordered and brought to your table (either outside or inside). Complimentary homemade cake and water available all day in the main building by the breakfast area which was really appreciated.
We loved the pool and pool area and again so peaceful. Excellent pool to swim in although a little cool getting in.
Our upstairs room was great and loved the views but a studio with a kitchen may have been more practical. I was delighted that the wonderful full length windows can be opened so the room is very well ventilated. Still safe as there is a glass partition half way up the window.
We only needed the air conditioning on for shot periods and it was very efficient and quiet. Wardrobes are spacious and all furnishings are good quality.
The upstairs terrace was beautiful and very quiet, only a few steps from our room.
The Tuesday morning 9:30am yoga is a must, exceptional!
Particular thanks must go to Fabio who is an incredible asset to the Quinta and all of the staff who were excellent! Really looked after us.
