Very good location...with the Fontana Park on the side, a mercado opposite, Continente supermarket around the bend on the left,Shopping mall with a laundry..in front, a good cafe on the right side and a number of local restaurants all around.Convenient for travel, too.
Had read poor reviews about the rooms etc...but the rooms were ok (a designer's concept) but failing in Hilton's standards.As a hotel, it is 5..but for Hilton's standards..it is a 3.5-4.There should be at least 1 mirror with light...there was no shaving mirror nor for a lady. No dressing table cos the bedside is filled with the coffemaker...ofcos there is a writing table.but one expects a bedside table with Hiltons. Also Hilton's typical radio was amiss.Am aware it is not an original Hilton property but modifications could be incorporated for convenience of guests esp. Hilton loyalists.
The F&B staff is excellent!!!..perhaps the motivating attitude of F&B mgr..Renato who himself welcomes the guests for breakfast.Breakfast is very good but the dining menu could be more diverse. The cost too a little steep..but there are so many eateries around. Warm service from staff made us dine in more than once.
Stayed there 3 times within a period of 17 days and never saw the GM.Overall staff has to be initiated into the hilton culture...which is obviously lacking.This subtle difference will be upsetting to a HH members only as it did to me.Otherwise the staff is v helpful and work to their best!
Hugo, the front office manager effectively came to my rescue when I had an issue.Most of the front office staff is also very good and helpful..some more proactive than the others.The housekeeping (not the cleaners) but the complimentary water supply etc staff could be better trained rather than await the guest to request.
Worth taking upper floor rooms for the layout space. A good point was the facility to keep baggage as we moved around Portugal.
Except for not getting the Hilton culture that we are used to...I liked this place and would definitely return again hoping that rooms are equipped with bare neccesities and tubs well sealed.
A very helpful resource here is the night auditor Cornelio...ask and you shall receive.!
