I spent a week at this hotel in late August 2012. The staff members are extremely friendly and very concerned about making your stay a good one. The rooms are ultra modern and very spacious and comfortable. The oversized terrace is a definite plus, as well.
The outdoor pool area is relatively unadorned but very inviting, nonetheless. The indoor pool, which I used most of the time, was warm and very pleasant. I spent just a bit of time in the hot tub and sauna, and enjoyed both.
The food at the hotel is excellent. I travelled with a friend and we dined at the Chef's Table one night and it was spectacular. It was just the two of us, but we were treated very well and the Chef went out of his way to produce a wonderful and memorable dinner and to accommodate to a very inconvenient dietary restriction in Portugal - an allergy to seafood.
My friend and I decided, at the last minute, to take golf lessons and the pro was very good. I would recommend it, even if you've never played, as I had not.
All in all, The Oitavos was a wonderful place to spent a holiday and to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Inspired by the timeless beauty of the Atlantic coast, The Oitavos seeks to embrace rather than compete with nature. Its bold design, sleek lines and elegantly simple interiors focus attention outwards – on the historical and natural elements of the grounds and the drama and romance of the Atlantic Ocean. A stunning blue colour palate will cool your senses, blending with the colours of the sea and the violets of the flowers dotted across the landscape. Contemporary sculpture and paintings by Portuguese artists will enrapture against the white canvas. ... more less
