This place is amazing! We were sorry we had only booked two nights at Matinha as the area has so much to offer and the hotel itself was so lovely. It is a very quiet area of the Alentejo, but a nice break from the hectic Algarve. Perhaps overpriced for the area but you could easily make this up with the breakfast that is included :) Breakfast had pretty much anything you could wish for, including eggs made to order. We asked for recommendations to grab lunch to the beach and the hotel packed us sandwiches which too were terrific. And we ended up liking the place so much, we stayed in for dinner one night. There are endless options for lounging around the property, depending upon whether you want privacy or a more social environment. The staff all speak English (and many other languages). Other than summer, this place seems like it would be very cozy, pleasant in the autumn.
