We returned to this hotel after having enjoyed a stay here two years ago. It was the same nice hotel and great staff. It's not exactly "on" the beach as you have to walk for almost a kilometer to get there. They do have a nice pool, but it can be a bit hard to get a spot on a sun bed there. Breakfast is very good for a Portuguese hotel and the rooms are very good for what you pay; relatively spacious with a desk and a balcony. Our only complaint, and it's quite important to us, is that they didn't take fire safety seriously. Twice we complained that the fire exit next to our door was blocked / locked. They said they'd look into it, but during our week there nothing happened. Very disappointing and we'll not stay here again. Not just because of the safety issue, but also because of the hike to the beach and because there are better beaches around (Praia Dona Ana for example!).
