Seems to be a major problem at this hotel relating to wifi. It was available in some rooms but not in mine. One could understand the problem existing for a few hours, but this issue has continued for days. It is deeply frustrating if you are trying to work, or keep in contact with colleagues/family.
The staff are perfectly friendly, and have offered access at certain times to space in business centre at certain times - but there's a world of difference between that, and reliable wifi in a room (as advertised). They say they're pursuing the problem, but there does not seem any real sense of urgency, or commitment to providing full service for which a guest has paid.
It's a smart enough place, but not smart enough to figure out how to provide backup wifi.
So, if you don't need wifi, fine. But if it's important to you, be aware that reliable wifi could be a very real problem here. And do not accept imprecise assurances that the problem is being looked into.
- 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
