Gated car park with wisteria and jasmine vines to welcome you. The general feel of an old castle you wish you had the time, and permission, to explore. An old wing and and and a new wing. The camera obscura up the street is probably worth the 3 euros, especially if you've never experienced one. The real beachfront restaurants and shops are a few miles away by car, and they're a bit touristy, but that's somewhat expectable. The pouada itself was extremely professionally run; the service was excellent, food was incredible, and the staff was very attentive, remembering our names and preferences. The town itself is nothing to rave about, but then it did provide a nice respite from our 2-week-long journey around Portugal. The signage in the town isn't great, so you might want to practice saying "posadou açaafráo?" because it's the color of saffron.
