We found this hotel on line after receiving an invitation to a wedding in Portugal.We wanted a hotel that was not going to be too expensive as we had already lost a deposit on a cancelled cruise in order to attend the wedding.We were pleasantly surprised with the size and the cleanliness of our room and balcony which overlooked a large garden area to the rear of the hotel with lovely big comfortable bean bags plus conventional sun loungers to sprawl out on.It was nice and peaceful sleeping in our comfortable clean and quiet rooms.Sun bathing on the lawns was also heaven as the pool area was quite noisy as it was very busy,bedlam at times unless you have children of your own with you then it is just fun. I have read some reviews that stated that the food was poor with very little choice, what utter and complete nonsense. Breakfast was an abundance of different types of cereals, breads,pancakes plus jams, honey, marmalade, fruits, cheeses, ham,then if you wish cooked breakfast consisting of three types of cooked eggs, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans and tomatoes.Machines made available were dispensing different types of coffee, tea and juices.The evening meals were imaginative with a good choice of salads,soup,fish and two types of meat, plus there was always a children's favourite dish such as pizza and a pasta dish with a good variety of tasty vegetables including a root mash, roasted and chipped potatoes,something for every taste. The deserts were plentiful and catered for all tastes as was the ice cream and fresh fruit.We were spoilt for choice and also pleasantly surprised with the wine and lager on tap to enjoy at your own will, plus fruit juices etc. How anyone can complain about the food is beyond me.I will say that the only complaint I have is that we did not have the means to make our own tea and coffee in the room, although a fridge was supplied and very welcome too to store our own drinks etc. The staff in reception in the restaurant and in the bar were all polite, helpful and and all good natured.The staff including the housekeepers were all well trained at their jobs and very obliging and they made our holiday a very relaxing pleasant experience. The added bonus for us was the hourly complimentary bus as the hotel is up a hill away from all the hussle and bussle of the shops,bars and restaurants but only a 10 minute free ride away,what more could you want!
