Considerable care has been given to providing comfortable and quality facilities in the rooms. Don't expect breakfast, as Pontalaia are apartments, but what we thought was a nice touch on the Christmas Day we stayed was the gift card and box of chocolates, despite the off-season prices. As a sidebar, one of the few places open on Christmas Day was the bar/cafe on the main street. Here there was quality in the food, followed by an invitation to sample the free desserts. Just examples of how, in my view, Portugal respects tourists.
