My friend and I recently returned from a week at this hotel. We got an amazing deal as they price matched with 5% discount. The staff were welcoming most of the time. The hotel is very spacious. The pool, gardens and indoor pool and spa are fantastic. We relaxed here all week, something I rarely do on holiday. The breakfast buffet was great and we ate out by the pool in the sun.
The only complaint was that the room was too hot at night and we didn't get a good night's sleep as we had to sleep with the balcony door open and there was noise from the road. The hotel only one switch for air con or heat - not both at the same time. It is not controlled in the room. The hotel manager said that many guests were cold at night so they couldn't turn the air con on. They gave us a large fan but it wasn't much use.
It's a great location to walk to town or out towards the lido area. Our favourite restaurant was Dona Amelia not far from the hotel. The seafood soup and beef kebab.
