 I loved everything about this retreat. I would book this again in a heartbeat! I have no complaints, everything was just bliss. Lourenço was amazing; before I went, he was very informative and helpful with all my questions. He also took the mindfulness and meditation sessions which were so eye opening and I felt incredible after each one, he was so great, very knowledgeable. I had 4 different yoga instructors whilst I was there, each of them offering a variety of yoga styles, which I loved. Each of them were absolutely amazing and I learnt so much. The location was fabulous, right by a long beautiful sandy beach, with some lovely restaurants and bars along the stretch. The hotel staff were so very friendly and helpful, made me feel very welcome and special. There was a lovely restaurant with beautiful food. The spa was also lovely. There is an outside pool too but was under construction when I went so can’t comment as I didn’t use it, but it looked lovely! The massage was good too, it added to the relaxation side of things. The room was very comfortable, large bed and a private bathroom with a bath. I will book this retreat again in the future as it was amazing and the team made it so special. Don’t hesitate to book this! 


 Had a brilliant 1 week stay at the retreat. Excellent food, service and facilities. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to get away from it all and also enjoy the Algarve climate. 


 We did the yoga retreat and loved every bit. The yoga teachers, the food, the rooms and the service, everything was balanced. We rented a car so we could explore the Algarve and visit nearby beaches. We also had a relaxing massage, which was probably the best massage I ever had. I would say, book it and experience what a little selfcare can do for you! 


 I took a risk and booked a room based on a gut feeling after reading reviews online. It was exactly what I hoped it would be :) I stayed five nights and was looking for a relaxing getaway and from day one I knew I made the right choice. The room was big and airy. The yoga classes were varied and great. But what made it extra special was Lourenco and his staff. They were amazing! They are warm, friendly and so accommodating. They will help you book any activities that you desire in the Algarve area. You can do as little or as much as you like. If you want to do a lot of activities it is probably best to rent a car. But if you want to just lay low and relax no car is needed or you can rent a bike. They do provide transportation for some activities like kayaking, surfing, etc. Also, they keep you well fed! The breakfast is delish with great options! The dinners always left me wanting more! They make sure you are kept well hydrated giving as much refills of fresh water that you need and there is always a yummy cake in the dining area to snack on :) I was pleased that they made substitutions on some dishes for me due to my food allergies. 


 We participated in the yoga program and are still over the moon with this experience. You feel welcome at once in a very comfortable environment and Lourenco and his team manage to make you feel at home within minutes. There’s enough space to relax within your own space or by the pool but the retreat also gives you the opportunity to meet likeminded people within this friendly environment. The yoga classes are very diverse so there’s a sort of yoga for everyone. Our highlight was dinner time - home cooked with a different cultural motto everyday and always spectacular! Plant based options are possible. If you would like to do other activities (SUP, Kayaking etc.) the staff makes it possible in a very quick and uncomplicated way. The whole stay within the retreat was special, not only because of the relaxing atmosphere, beautiful amenities and yoga classes for all levels but also because of the amazing staff and personal encounters as well as the beautiful environment of the Algarve.

 The best hotel I've been in the last years, cozy, friendly, with practical and luxurious details, Best service, marvelous food and all of this at a fair price. Hope to visit again soon, not only in summer but also in low season. Top Yoga classes! 


 If you want to chill out and relax then this is the place to do it. You can be as active as you want with yoga,cycling water sports, walking or just laze by the pool. The beach is about 8km away and it’s an easy cycle to get there. Lorenzo makes you feel very welcome and the food is amazing. Mindfulness Monday dinner is a blindfolded experience which I highly recommend. I give the whole experience top marks and book yourself a stay

 Very nice hosts, kind and attentive, ready to solve any problem. You get more attention than at a 5 stars hotel. Small hotel, so it's cozy and comfortable. The room looks great and the bed is very comfortable. The temperature of the water in the pool is perfect. The breakfast is nice with various fruits. For yoga classes it't best if you're not a beginner or at least in pretty good physical shape. The beach is not near, but for water sports they come pick you up and the instructors are particularly attentive and helpful. I think it's better not to book in advance water sports, but to see what is actually available when you get there (due to wheather conditions, not all water sports offered may be available). 


 When you arrive at the peaceful and beautiful hotel you instantly feel like you’re being invited to relax fully and leave the rest of the world behind. The staff are excellent, the facilities are second to none, the food is delicious and the experiences (yoga, biozoom, transformational breathing, meditation) helped us both grow and learn more about ourselves. If you’re even half-thinking of doing a wellness retreat I would highly recommend it and Alamos is a wonderful place to try first.

 I really enjoyed my stay at Alamos. The staff were so friendly and warm. The grounds were stunning. The food was delicious. The yoga/breathwork teachers were of outstanding quality and I loved the variety of classes taught. I will be definitely coming back here again and would recommend to anyone thinking of going on a retreat.

 This is really a wonderful retreat. The rooms are well-thought out, all individual, and very comfortable. The beds are probably amongst the best I have experienced, certainly the best in Portugal. Lourenco and his team have given much thought to every detail, and their care and attention was evident throughout the stay. The resort is quite small, so you do get to know everyone staying there, and the team works hard to ensure that all your needs are met. They will also suggest and arrange excursions during the day. I went canoeing, and really enjoyed the experience. Morning yoga sessions were followed an unexpectedly great breakfast. I had the evening meal plan, and was really pleased I had taken this option. I was treated to imaginative and delicious vegan meals, each night with a different country theme. I did the mindfulness course during my stay, and had the pleasure of working with Raquel, who was thoughtful, and imaginative in her techniques and suggestions. I would highly recommend this program. Different types of yoga are offered each day, and they are easily accessible for beginners. However, experienced yoga practitioners may find them on the light side. I was ok with this, as I was more interested in the regular yoga practice routine.
