Hotel CS Atlantic Sao Rafael details

Tucked away in a secluded beachside spot, the CS Sao Rafael Suite Hotel was made for taking it easy.

If you’re looking for a peaceful base, this hotel is the ideal choice. It’s a ten-minute drive from the centre of Albufeira, so you’re slightly removed from all the hustle and bustle. What’s more, the whole place is surrounded by mature gardens, giving it a real away-from-it-all vibe. The beach is only a five-minute walk down the road, too.

Inside, the décor has a sleek, modern feel. Take the bedrooms, for example. Warm neutrals provide a contemporary backdrop for chunky wooden furniture and big beds dressed in crisp white linen. In-room extras come in the form of air-conditioning, satellite TVs and minibars. Add a private balcony or terrace to the mix and you can soak up the views whenever you fancy.

Outside, you'll find three swimming pools surrounded by tropical gardens. One of them is just for children, so little ones can splash about while you relax on a sunlounger. There’s a poolside snack bar, too, serving up light bites and cocktails throughout the day. Elsewhere, a tennis court and an 18-hole putting green cater for the more active crowd. Alternatively, there's a relaxation centre if you fancy some pampering.

Lastly, there's the dining scene to consider. The main restaurant is a stylish space kitted out with spot-lit ceilings, big windows and bold art prints. Head here for big buffets that team international favourites with more local fare. With everything from fresh seafood to curries on the menu, there's always plenty of choice. There’s an à la carte option, too – ideal for when you fancy something a little more formal. For a front row seat at sunset, meanwhile, the Sao Rafael Beach Bar offers up fantastic sea views from its open-air terrace.
