Smart hotel facing the Atlantic, with miles of semi-deserted beaches to the north and south. Most of the rooms face the side, but if you upgrade and get a balcony room overlooking the sea, there is little between you and America- a great view.
Rooms are spacious and well-appointed (I can only imagine reviewers pre-2010 were talking about a different place) and you sleep with nothing but the roll of the waves to interrupt your sleep (which they won't). Good breakfast, excellent staff, and the sun terrace on the roof (with hot tubs and slightly pricey bar) is well protected against the wind which might otherwise drive you from the beaches.
Didn't try the restaurant- there are good places in town no more that 10 minutes' walk away- including a superb if expensive seafood place perched on a cliff (forgotten the name, but one of the best meals we had in Portugal).
Very much off the beaten track, but well worth it for a few days away from it all.
