We stayed here twice during our tour through Portugal because we liked it so much. All of the tidy rooms have about the same unlimited seaview to the Southwest. Which means on a sunny day you can enjoy a Drink on your private balcony and watch the sun going down before you stroll to the Hotels restaurant to eat one... More

Excellent rooms with ocean view. Great swimmingpool (largest in Europe). Very friendly staff, Super Breakfest. No complaints. Wifi is rolling out in every room (not yet!) Nice walking nearby to the clifs. Super Surf area.

This hotel is right on the beach. We left our doors open at night to hear the sound of the waves and at some point it was too loud. The hotel is dated and doesn't have internet in the rooms so that was a bit of a problem for me but I was able to connect in the lobby. When... More

It has to be said that much of this hotel is rather dated. So why am I giving it an excellent rating? You have to look beyond any small shortcomings because this hotel is located in such a special place, right on a beautiful beach. There is something quite unique about lolling around in the huge swimming pool as waves... More

When we arrived our room wasn't yet ready, so we left our bags in a small store room and went for some lunch nearby. The reception area wasn't quite as I expected, but it was clean and tidy. The two members of staff we dealt with were very polite and helpful. We came back at the given time and were... More

We stayed in a suite (2 rooms). The view from the balcony was stunning. Sleeping quality was excellent. I enjoyed a lot the firm mattress of our room. It was great to listen to the sound of the waves at night. The breakfast is nothing special, very simple. One would expect more from such hotel. The swimming pool was great.... More

Wow, what a location! 100m pool in front of the hotel; but, right on an amazing beach too. Brilliant for surfing/body boarding. Fantastic room for 4 people - that includes a separate room (our two older children were in there); wish more hotels did this. Lovely view from our room - see photo!! Also a large fridge. Very clean.

We were very surprised when we opened the door to our room and saw the view. After the not so grand entrance to the hotel and the so so lobby, we were very pleased with how big the room was and how big our balcony was. The pool outside was built right into the ocean was the biggest pool I... More

Such a great view from basically all rooms and one of the biggest seawater pools you can find in Europe. The hotel has been built at a time when costs were not an issue, it is still amazing to see the layout. Very friendly staff, rooms are nice but not fancy and all of them come with seaview and a...

We stayed here for 2 night in May, 2014. The hotel is right on the beach with incredible views of the waterfront, surfers and dramatic cliffs. Our room had a balcony with a table and chairs so we could have a glass of wine in the late afternoon and watch the waves. The room was a good size and was... More
