Just back from 10 nights AI stay.Basically a good hotel that has its faults but could be a good 4star with some improvements:
Room was nice with firm bed, good aircon, fridge and big bathroom.Modern TV but need some more English channels for those occasional rainy days!
Food was ok, breakfast was best with full English, Continental, pancakes etc.Lunch and Dinner ok, always soup, meat, fish, pasta, rice, chips etc.Would have liked some more seafood but only a minor gripe.The big issue is the 2 sitting system:21.00 is too late for most English people and is a more continental time to eat.They will change you if you complain enough but feel it needs reviewing.
Pool is fresh but warmed up as week went on! No sunbed wars as outside door is not opened until 9+plenty of sunbeds.Pool bar opens at 9,could do with some more tables+chairs outside and morecovered space as if it rains everyone piles inside+it gets too crowded!
Bars indoor+pool.Try some Portugese with the staff, much appreciated by them and your measures suddenly increase! Super Bock beer, wines ok and good choice of spirts+cocktails.
Staff are what make this place.From the restaurant to reception to bar to cleaning they work so hard and always a smile.Especially at my rubbish Portugese!
Clientele mostly British with Dutch/Scandanavian.Very sociable bunch+we spoke to lots of different people(Brian/Pam we didnt exchange details so if you read this +want to keep in touch letme know !)
Just a word to the management. You will get bad reviews from some people if you continue to allow groups of stags and hens over the weekend! Im not easily offended but plenty were!
Like I say we enjoyed our stay+ just some basic tweaks needed really.
