Having read other reviews about this hotel we went with slight trepidation but were pleasantly surprised. The reception staff greeted us warmly and were very helpful. The public areas were very clean and tidy as there seemed to be an army of cleaners at work nearly all day.
Our apartment was very spacious and well equiped. The furniture was a bit dated and the beds were firm but comfortable.
We were half board but swapping our evening meal for lunch was not a problem. This allowed us to go out and sample the local cuisine in the nearby restaurants of which there were many. The evening buffet meal in the hotel was not to our taste as the restaurant was extremely busy and the food was not very hot.
We did feel that the drinks in the hotel were a little expensive compared to other places. It was as though we were paying for the all-inclusive people!
One small gripe we had was that many items that come as standard in other hotels (such as TV control and sunbed mattresses) had to be hired.
The other thing to note about Portugal is that they do not have the smoking restrictions that we have in Britain. As non-smokers, it made some of our meals out very unpleasant and we could not enjoy a drink in the hotel bar for the smoke.
This would not however stop us from returning to Portugal as we found everything and everyone very friendly and welcoming.
