Before you book this hotel be warned of the following facts:
There is no beach, just a moon-scape of boulders and, when we were there, a JCB boulder bashing.
The "village setting" includes a disused oil refinery. Nice!
There is no restaurant which must be a first for a 4 star hotel.
The room was a pokey airless hole. My heavily pregnant wife had to sleep on a camp bed.
To say there was nothing to do would be an understatement. By day 3 we were spending our time watching TV cartoons in Portugese.
When we complained we were told basically 'tough luck'. We endured this dump for 7 days and could not wait to get home.
If you still go ahead and book this hotel be aware we were only offered £120 pound compensation for our troubles (5% of our costs!) My advise: Don't go near it.
