Very impressed with the hotel overall, the rooms although fairly basic and a little small are very clean with room service nigh on being daily, it does have a fridge to store water etc and also a TV that has sky news and BBC1, we also had a decent sized balcony with sun loungers and a table and chairs too, the pool area is really nice and always spotless, as is the hotel has an whole, the food was of a good standard, breakfast was the usual sausage, eggs (boiled and scrambled), bacon and beans but this would only be luke warm alot of the time so I usually opted for toast with jam etc which was decent enough plus they had crossiants and fruit too, the lunch and dinner options were mainly the same with a different selection of meats, the food could get abit repetitve at times but the meat on the grill was lovely, there was steak, chicken and lamb kebabs, veal, spare ribs, pork, grilled chicken break etc...it was always cooked perfectly by the chef on the grill, plus they also had seafood, the grilled salmon I had was lovely, they run a shuttle bus of a night that took you into the strip or old town which was free if you was all inclusive, and a cab was was only approx 7 euros so location wise its really good, staff were all very friendly, the young girl on reception could be slightly moody at times but not in a horrible way, but I supppose people cant be happy all the time, the hotel is great value for money and if I go back to Portugal again for another relaxing week then this is the hotel I would defo book again, the only downside is there is no entertainment of a night, if that was sorted it would be a great little hotel, also the sports bar was very empty at night but that may be because we went in late September, but the pool tables kept us entertained for a while, overall great place would recommend it!
