Lovely hotel with a bright reception and lounge area when you first walk in. The rooms are very spacious with a kitchenette and dining table with a large TV and balcony. However as the beach is literally 2 minutes down the road, it would rather have a sea view as it would have been more picturesque than a plain garden (stayed in room 45). Very impressed with the restaurant, good variety and quality. Breakfast was the same every morning, lunch was good but my favourite was dinner. There majority of nights included a pork option, one night there was peppered fillet steak (which was delicious), others included cod Portuguese style, marinated duck and there was a different pasta dish each night. The only issue I had was at the evening the bar tender that couldn't speak English very well always avoided serving us, sometimes I was waiting about 10 minutes to be served by the other bartender who could speak English. Also as my boyfriend and I are a young couple and a lot of the staff are fairly young, I sometimes felt like we were being watched.
However all in all a great hotel and would happily go back.
