The hotel and the island are perfect for a very relaxing holiday in an extremely quiet location.
Not much to do besides lying on the sun, swimming in the pools or in the ocean and relaxing...
We stayed here for one week and i can say that it was really peaceful and enjoyable.
The beach is just amazing, with a huge extension of white soft sand and warm water.
The food at the main restaurant was very good, with great variety, always serving fresh fish, salads, fruits, which I loved, besides all the regular buffet dishes like pasta, pizza, vegetables, meats, French fries, soup, etc.
The rooms were clean and spacious, however I felt they should be more confortable, they looked a bit "empty" and just to simple for a 4* hotel.
The staff was extremely helpful and attentive and helped us in everything we needed. My boyfriend felt unwell one morning, and they provide a doctor to visit us at the hotel in a short period of time. He was fine the next day!
I must say that the F&B staff, especially the ones from the main restaurante are just incredible. I confess I wasn't expecting such a high standard service when I arrived. Unbelievable how they can reach everybody at the same time, always with a great smile on theis faces. Loved them, well done!
There are two pools at the hotel: a big one where all the music and activities are happening, and a quiet pool, where you are not allowed to make noise. This was our favorite.
We took a day to visit the island on a moto4 and we had great time. I truelly recommend you take a tour to see the sharks, visiting povoação velha, riding on the dunes and visiting the beautifull beach of santa monica on a moto4 or a jeep.
We also went out for dinner at the city center and we have a great dinner of lobster and drinks for 25€ per person (tip included). Just ask in the reception for a nice local restaurant to have lobster, with NO Tourists, and they will sent you to the best place in town.
If you want some music, dancing and party while dining, then go for the tourist restaurants instead. That night, we called a taxi to take us to town and a really nice old man showed up in a pickup truck. He took us to town and after three or four hours he picked us up again and brought us back to the hotel for a really inexpensive value. We had dinner and a few drinks at an open air bar, with local music, and local people.
It was truly enjoyable and I would go back for sure!
