Back home in wet Wales after this years visit to the Tropical Sol. Transport from Faro airport by Yellowfish transfers, excellent as usual. Room not ready as we arrived early, so we had breakfast at the snack bar run by Francisco and Natalie met up with old friends and chilled out. What a lovely surprise when we got our room, no 09 by the hotel entrance, new big flat screen tv in the lounge, new lovely glass coffee table,a new kitchen (very nice) and a flat screen tv above the door in the bedroom,luxury!. NEW pillows no lumps n bumps wonderful, pity the wind was cold but by the weekend it had got very warm and turned into a breeze very hot during the day. Meals at the snack bar were excellent,Francisco's standards are very high. I looked at the studio by the snack bar 0015 much bigger than I expected almost a 1 bed apartment the drawback you have to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. I also looked at the rooms on the 1st floor by the bar, very impressed so we may go for one of these next year to avoid having to drip dry after a swim before going through the hotel entrance to get to 09.housekeeping was good again this year towels and bedlinen changed almost daily. Unfortunately the owner still has not put any entertainment in the bar in the evenings but Angelu's bar round the corner from the hotel provides plenty. The bakery and the minimarket are still excellent value for money as are the snack bar meals. Taxi fares are up by about 1euro on last years fares. Our lovely receptionist Mara is still here as are the other reception staff and problems are sorted out quickly and efficiently.Here's to next years visit and what will the owner surprise me with next time new sun loungers on the patio, the ones in use are not easy to use for sunbathing.looking forward to June 2014
