Weather very poor, cloud cover,rain every day. When we did sit out by pool it was deserted which is not good to get anyone in the holiday mood. Food-breakfast their was a choice of hot cooked food,cold meat and cheeses or fruit and cereal all of which were of poor quality. If you enjoy the English choice of hot food then avoid the bacon and sausages unless you enjoy party sausages from a tin and 90% rind 10% bacon kept warm in hot fat. Dinner-now if you enjoy bland which only could be described as a mismatch of English,German,Danish..... And you are not gastronomically adventurous then don't opt to eat in the restaurant. We payed half board and ate out most evenings. There's a good choice of Portuguese,madeiran,Italian,Chinese and Indian about. We tried dinner in the hotel a couple of times and felt very let down by the standard. The vegetables were tired,the meat and fish very overcooked and tasteless. And everything pretty much non descript,: fish in a yellow sauce,meat in a brown sauce all of which had developed a skin on. Not four star standard food,probably school standard.
Evening entertainment very dated. Power ballands done on a home keyboard.
Rooms very average,photos in brochure don't show cracks in walls and dirty balcony floors and rusty peeling railings.
No access to sea due to high cliffs and no beaches at all on the island.
Would we return. No.
