Stayed here in July for 5 days. The hotel is beautifully designed and furnished set on the edge of a low cliff with beautiful white sleek outdoor furniture dotted around the pool facing the Atlantic. Had cocktails at the bar and the food at Japanese restaurant. The best thing about the hotel is it is near enough to go into town or to the habour for decent restaurants, but far enough from the crowd. Once you get into the hotel it feels very removed from everything albeit it is the main route to a brilliant walk/cycle along the coast. The hotel provides a motorised bicycle and its great for long distance cycling. Recommend cycling all the way to Guincho Beach amazing scenic ride! And the beach is worth the effort (or lack of if you use the motorised bicycle). We got a room facing the Atlantic worth paying that extra for the view. Thumbs up for to room, service, food and drinks. Would definitely come back here again.
