Staying at Casa Tres Palmeiras and being pampered by Mrs. Dolly and her friendly staff make life worth living, even though I must admit that it feels more like you are in heaven than on earth.
The hotel is right on the cliff of the Atlantic and you are the last house (nearly also the only) who is having this type of sea view overlooking the water, cliffs and beach. You just have to walk ca 2 minutes from the gates to the beach (you can borrow beach umbrellas of Dolly and she supplies you with a beach towel, which is only to be used on the sandy beach) and then head back to the salt water pool and sun chairs at the hotel (all guest has their own chair and a set of two beach towels handed out every morning). This year there were new, huge umbrellas by the pool, which gave some well needed shade, when the temperature were over 44 degrees Celcius for 3 days.
There is a lounge were you can mix your on drink, sit down and read one of the many paper back books from the library or you can just sit outside for the whole day (sun from early morning to late evening). I have not had a rental car during my stays at Casa Tres Palmeiras and I do think it works out very fine. Within 5 minutes you will find a O Lino, a very good fish restaurants, right on the beach, and aprox. 25 minutes away by foot, you get to all the buzz and restaurants which Praia de Rocha offerts. Since it gets dark around 20hrs in the summertime, Dolly provides all her guest with flash lights, so you can see your way to and back to the different restaurants.
I do not have words for how much I like Casa Tres Palmeiras and the feeling of being blessed to sit from early morning to late evenings by the house, just overlooking the sea and taking part of this paradise which Mrs Dolly and her staff is creating. It is a treat to visit this Mrs Dolly's Casa Tres Palmeiras and I am looking forward to return next year again.
Ps The rooms are great as well- spatious, pretty, and very luxurious.
