We transferred to this hotel after finding our original choice of hotel and resort (Real Marina Spa in Olhao, Portugal) did not meet our expectations. We walked into the beautiful lobby of the hotel on 30th September and immediately felt the stress of the last 24 hours disappear. We were allocated a great room on the ninth floor that had wonderful views of the fantastic beach and marina.
We were staying on a half board basis and were disappointed with the food, would not rate as a 5* - no show cooking and many of the dishes were only warm.
We were lucky to be able to secure sun beds on the lovely deck when the weather was good and we did not have to get up at the crack of dawn to achieve this! I agree with other reviewers that the arrangement of red bean bags on a grassed area is not satisfactory solution - sun beds would have been a much better and more in keeping for a 5* hotel.
Just a small downside - the UK tv channels are limited (CNN, Sky News and a couple of obscure ones in English).
All in all we had a lovely six day break here, wish we were still there!
