This is an apartment hotel, made up of two completely re-made towers and brand new common areas. I used to know the building before the transformation and it is quite amusing to identify original pieces of architecture and furniture in the re-styled, re-furbished, re-branded context. And you can tell it was a very intelligent and efficacious operation. The hotel is not the most interesting building you can get but it is extraordinarily spacious and very clean. The apartments have a small kitchenette where you can cook comfortably: this is a fundamental issue when you are staying with your kids for 4-5 days (or more) because you can very easily get bored with the walking distance restaurants (at the Marina). Other practical notes: breakfast is very good; the outdoor pool is also great but only usable during spring-summer (unless you enjoy very cold water); the indoor pool is a fair and nice big pool but it can get crowded during ‘normal’ hours – on the contrary, you can be there just by yourself if you use it early in the morning, until 10:00 or so, and during lunch time 13:00-15:30.
This is probably evident when you look at the maps and the pictures of the hotel but you can really walk to the white sand ocean beach, going out from the outdoor pool garden and taking a wooden deck: this is definitely the greatest value of staying at the Aqualuz. This is real good value for money during out-of-the-season stays. Just pay attention to the weather forecasts: the real important thing is that you get sunny days, either in January or October or any other month. In this money for value sense, Aqualuz is definitely unbeatable in Tróia and surroundings.
