I would just like to say I hav just returned from a holiday in Portugal & stayed at this hotel. It was spotlessly clean. Maid service excellent. Desk staff very friendly & patient as well as helpful. It is ideally situated tp the old town which in my opinion is better than the new town which is full of bustling bars & restaurants. The old town has a more laid bk atmosphere & quaint little streets u can amble along at ur own pace. There is activity here but on a more pleasurable degree. I would not think twice about going bk to stay here again.
