Pestana Porches Praia

We are thinking of staying at the Pestana Porches Praia for one week in April 2019 and would appreciate some help before we book. It is classed as being between Porches and Armancao de Pera, having direct access to the sea but the map looks as if it is inland. Has anyone stayed here please? What is the area like? Are there lots of restaurants around as we don't like to be forced to eat in the hotel and can't walk far? Is it on a bus route or would we need a car - we would want to travel along the coast?

Anything anyone can think of would be most appreciated. Thanks to all who reply

That area is ill served by buses with (effectively) only one bus each way on Saturdays and Sundays.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the area but to get further afield, or even get to the shops, a car is pretty much essential.
