This will be our 4th trip back to Portugal and will again stay at Pestana. The hotel is conveniently located in town and walking distance to all restaurants. I find it a lttle far to walk to the beach but could be done. The hotel is a condo and has a well equipped kitchen. We have one bedroom and two full baths.
We have only used the pool once as we are beach people, but the pool area has lots of chairs and covers a large area.
We had an issue with our room not being ready the first year we arrived but have learned since then the email ahead and advise of our arrival time and the room has been ready.
The walls are not exactly sound proof and if you have a noisey neighbour beside you or above you, you will know it.
It is great value for a vacation and we have always had good weather travelling in October. The locals are all friendly and speak english without effort.
The first year we travelled here we were a little shy about travelling about, but have since learned to expand and have great experiences. Not like driving in Toronto, no one honks at you with impatience!
Golf is a reasonable price, but if you want a cart, they are very expensive. We did not take a cart the first year and regretted it. Golf course was in good shape but 'hilly'.
Car rentals are reasonable and we pick one up at the airport. The roads are all well marked and roads are all in good shape. Hard to get lost, just have to get used to the 'roundabouts'.
Portugal is one of our favourite vacations, good weather, good value, nice people and very relaxing.
Beaches are awesome!
