After staying in a similarly priced four star apartment in Praia da rocha last year, both me and my boyfriend expected a lot from this hotel, and it didn't fail to meet our expectations!
We arrived a little too early for check in, and whilst we're not let in immediately, our room was prepared as quickly as possible.
The hotel room itself was large and modern. I would recommend however a room facing the pool/sea as these rooms have a larger balcony, aswell as beautiful views and sun for most of the day.
The only downsides we found with our room was the lack of plugs and a mild sewage smell in the bathroom which was pretty much constant and meant our bathroom door had to be shut at all times (don't know if this was a common problem throughout the hotel).
The breakfast was pretty good and was open till half 10 meaning that you could have a decent lie in!
The pool was lovely and quiet unlike some hotels and pool snacks were delicious and affordable.
The only downside of this hotel which I feel let's it down as a four star is it's dodgy wifi. The speed was just too slow, even for the purchased one which we gratefully received for free. In my opinion in a four star, the wifi should be free anyway and should be able to reach all areas of the hotel.
Thank you for our special stay!
