Recently returned from 1 week's stay here in a 2 bed apartment which was very nicely furnished and modern. As previous reviewer mentioned, the cleaners came in every day (very friendly) but all they did was empty bins and provide clean towels once during the week (the sheets were definitely not changed). Oddly, there was a percolator in our room instead of a kettle. On our second day and after only a couple of times of use, we switched it on and heard a loud bang after a couple of minutes, We realised the glass jug had exploded - luckily the shattered glass stayed in the tray it sat on. We reported it to reception and the cleaner came and replaced it with a kettle. However, the next morning the receptionist announced they would be charging us for it - this apparently could be anything up to 100 euros! We asked to see the manager but he failed to turn up after arranging a meeting. Having this hanging over us the rest of the week really spoiled our holiday - it wouldn't have been so bad but on checking in the first day, the receptionist asked for credit card details which I foolishly gave to her. It was obvious the reason for this is that they can take money from you for damage even if it's not your fault. Fortunately, our holiday rep negotiated on our behalf and told us the charge had been reduced to 10 euros but on checking out nothing was said and I cancelled my credit card as soon as I got home. Apart from all this, the hotel is very pleasant and clean with 'one' nice receptionist and friendly bar staff. The beds are fantastic - so comfortable - lovely pool but it was hard to get a swim as there were a lot of young, very lively lads who took it over quite a lot; they also played their music at full volume. Would have gone to the two beaches nearby but they're down steep hills which makes coming back up in the heat a bit off-putting (not for people with walking difficulties). Would return to Portugal as on the whole the people are lovely but not to this resort.
