This is our 4th visit to Portugal. Breakfasts were nice and good portion. Free orange with full English. Huge jacket potatoes with various fillings. Food was reasonably priced although I would say that it is not as comfortable as the last place they were previously at top end of the strip. Try the cottage, you won't be disappointed.
