This was our second stay in this hotel and,as before, we loved every minute. There are only about 40 rooms , built over three floors and a bright modern reception area,spa,bar and restaurant. The pool is set in a beautiful garden, a two minute walk from the beach. The staff were excellent- welcoming, friendly, efficient and proactive. Because it is such a small hotel, the staff got to know the guests and were happy to offer advice about restaurants and places to go in the area. In particular, Filipe and Ricardo, were charming and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast offered a good range of fresh fruit, the usual cooked selection, cheeses etc. The only thing we missed was toast! Lunch beside the pool was good value and dinner very good indeed.
And lastly, the biggest plus point about this hotel is that no children under 16 are allowed! Bliss!!!!
A quiet, restful and calm environment.
