My husband and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel and we thought it was wonderful. We had read mixed reviews on tripadvisor and were unsure what to expect but our first impressions on arriving like being met with champagne and very efficiently checked in reassured us quickly. The fantastic reception area was amazing so stylish and modern and spacious. When we were shown to our suite room we were very very impressed. It was fabulous with 2 large balconies 2 bathrooms 2 large screen TVs, 2 sinks, and the massive bed was so comfortable with wonderful pillows! We thought the food in the hotel was great with a really good choice - always lots of variety and nothing that should have been hot was cold. We enjoyed fantastic weather the whole 2 weeks and were lucky enough to be able to eat every meal outside on the terrace with a sea view.
Staff in the hotel were very friendly, efficient and always quick to help. It was my birthday whilst I was there and they delivered a cake with a candle and sparkling wine to the room which was really a lovely touch.
Entertainment in the hotel was brilliant. The resident duo Willjamin entertained us a great deal and are very good acoustic guitarists and singers and Gemma was fabulous too - I enjoyed the morning yoga and tai-chi sessions she held and also her singing in the evenings. We loved the Elvis tribute who was such good fun and although we missed the Portugese dancers we hear they were very good too.
All in all we had such a fabulous time at theCS Sao Rafael Atlantic and feel sad that some people seem to find fault that we had to write this review and thank all the staff for their kindness and attention. Sue and Keith Rumble Leicester.
