We are visiting this hotel last week of June. Do you think building work will be finished by then. At time of booking refurbishment was not mentioned. And since March the hotel has been changing the date of when it will all be finished every week!
Thank you cjwinthesun for letting me know. Looking forward to it now! We often stay at the Penina and pool is never heated so used to that!
Thanks Murray L for letting us know. We shall await news with interest!
We are going Wednesday !
Our travel agents were told "we are just in the process in setting out the plants"
I was assured by the hotel yesterday "the restaurant was open and the pool was being filled today" They assured me it would be ok!
We are taking a chance and still going as the other options were too far from the beach
Watch this space
Unlikely, I would definitely call them to check.
I have booked through hotel for 22nd june but im in process of booking elsewhere in vale de lobo. Not willing to chance it as would totally spoil holiday as not golfers out all day. Luckily can cancel at no cost with hotel.
Thanks for replies. Any news from anyone staying there at the moment would be very welcome
Friend flew to Portugal yesterday and building work not complete yet. Unlikely to be ready. Tricia
I would be very surprised if it is - there was a lot to do and not much work going on. I may be wrong - it might be worth ringing the hotel directly. There's work going on down the road as well near the bars and restaurants.
Hope this helps.
Returned on Saturday - pool all complete but did not feel heated to me. Some groundwork / landscaping still going on but not sufficient to 'ruin' your holiday. Beach a short walk away with nice loungers etc managed by hotel. Enjoy
