The Good: Friendly staff, good breakfast, close to the beach, decent cocktails at a reasonable price, nice room with decent bathroom The Bad: The pool was really cold. I understand it was not the height of summer, but really a heated pool is required for anyone to enjoy – the water was about 15C. No light on the balcony – this might seem trivial but consider that sunset was about 6.30pm. It was nice sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down, but we wanted to read or play cards and had to give up and go back inside the room. Cleaning staff are not great – often our room would be cleaned very late in the day which was a hassle. Apparently the latest the cleaner should come is 4.30pm, so I was annoyed to arrive back at our room at 5.15pm after a day out only to see the cleaner just starting to clean, so we had to go away for another 30mins and come back. Also, the cleaner didn’t take away empty bottles and glasses but did take away our room card (which we left in the holder to provide electricity to charge a tablet). I’d rather they took away my rubbish and left stuff I need. Bedroom ceiling – instead of a normal painted ceiling, the entire room ceiling was one giant picture of six young ladies splashing around in a pool. Not a big deal, but just no need. The hotel advertises ‘fitness centre’ – I had to laugh when I saw this, as it comprised a couple of dilapidated weight-training items located on a grassy area near the pool. The worst ‘fitness centre’ I’ve ever seen!

the hotel is expensive for what it is its definitely not 4star more like 2 star hotels in the bath towel , water leaking when showering on the floor. dirty walls in the room . you have to pay extra for a kettle in the room. I could go on but to much I dont recommend this place even the breakfast is a joke I could eat better at home . dont waste your money going to stay at this place.

Very nice place, staff very friendly and helpful and the hotel very quirky. The room was very comfortable and food at breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The walk into the town took about 10 mins to lovely restaurants that sold amazing food and fresh fish, although there was some restaurants closer to the hotel on the boardwalk along the beach front. Every restaurant we tried I could not fault, even the restaurant that belonged to the hotel just 2 mins away was nice we had a special price of 22 euros each for 3 course including a bottle of wine. Would recommend although I can imagine being very busy in the summer season we had no trouble getting a sun-bed, also the beach have deals as well 2 beds, umbrella and a free drink 13 euros. Not much there for children apart from a pool, however the beach is literally through the gate and there are jet skis, slides etc to occupy them.

The rooms are modern and well furnished. However our bathroom had a glass wall with a privacy curtain didn’t bother us but might not suit some. Aircon might not be sufficient in summer. Safe, pool towels were included staff were excellent. Housekeeping was first class with turn down service in the evening and extra towels if required. The only poor thing was breakfast- the quality of the food was excellent however there wasn’t enough staff. It was often hard to find a clean table, mugs / bowls often ran out so you had to wait for some time . Pestana this isn’t good enough order more cups and bowls and employ more staff at breakfast then you will have an excellent hotel.
