My husband and I booked this hotel for three nights through the Pousada association of Portugal. We did upgrade to a superior room which I am glad we did because we were traveling with our 15 year old nephew and a cot in a standard room would have been very cramped. The room was clean, nicely decorated and had a large balcony overlooking the car park and ocean beyond. This spot is very windy, so may be quite cool in the summer shoulder seasons. The breakfasts were wonderful, the staff extremely well trained and attentive. We did not eat in the restaurant because our nephew's likes are narrow and plain. The menu certainly looked tasty to us and had we been alone, we would have tried it. The beds were quite hard. The linens were crisp and the pillows were good. The pool is nice, loungers are high quality and it is quiet. The water is cold though. The common areas are tastefully decorated and it is a lovely, reasonably priced alternative to a standard hotel one can find anywhere.
