Such a shame that this Hotel is not much better than it is! There is good and bad! The Bad is........some adult guests were bare foot at Dinner! This did not give a good Dining Experience! and there is no dress code at all - apart from Resort Casual! (which includes shorts vests and bare feet!) The bed in our room was brick hard! I used blankets in the room to ease the pain of lying on it. There is only BBC World on the TV (for English speakers) - no sky news or bbc news! But other languages are catered for. Hen parties loved it! and Stag parties loved it too! They were allowed to sing sectarian songs by the pool! In the evening, there is a long queue for the "all inclusive" bar! Only one dude serving! There is no entertainment for adults - someone appeared in the bar one night for kids! The location is not ideal - hilly area surrounds hotel and there is a 45 minute walk to the beach - also, the pavements have to be scrutinised when walking! Uneven paving - so look out!! Oh, and food was "motorway service type nosh" Our room was not "hoovered" during our entire stay. On the bright side ??? Well, the welcome at Reception was excellent. Staff speak English well. The wine provided at meals was palatable and innocuous! The hotel public areas were rather nice. A shuttle service was provided to go to and from the beach (old town) and the "strip" (new town)! The bus only took around 26 people - so when it is full - you have to get a taxi! (around 5 eu) We went to Villa Moura for the day - reception told us it would cost 30 euros each way - but it only cost around 18 eu one way by taxi (plus a small tip - they dont expect loads in Portugal) It was like visiting a different world - beautiful marina and lovely bars and restaurants! V M is well worth a visit. If you manage to get a holiday here really cheap - then it may be worth considering - but if you are looking for a four star hotel -THIS AIN'T IT!
