In my personal opinion 2 - 3 days in this Hotel/Spa are much relaxing than a week or more in some paradisiac destinies.
This was our second time in H2Otel and although the neighbourhood villages and cities are beautifull our goal us simply to enjoy the Spa, thermal therapies, pools, sauna, hamman, etc... and of course the great food from Alquimia the restaurant.
Breakfast is included and it's great, vast and high quality food is served, either if you prefer the healthy aproach or the fattier but delicious heavy food from Beira Interior (region/local food). The same can be said about the buffet at dinner: not only vast, delicious and high quality but actually very creative (don't miss the chance to taste Suchi Serrano, or the fabulous local cheese), thus you have the opinion to go a La Carte.
Unfortunetly the same doesn't apply to the buffet at lunch where the food and variety served aren't worth the 20€ per person + beverages, we only lunched there once when arriving, the otehr days we did the same as the other time: sandwiches, soup and natural juices in the cafe at the Aquadome.
Both times we had great rooms, although this time we did heard some noise comming from the hall while trying to sleep, but we can't blame to the hotel management about other peoples bad behaviour.
In my opinion the valued paid for the stay was well worth it, although the fact that H2Otel is getting more and more popular by the day, and is a family/kids friendly hotel we didn't felt a bit disturbed by all those kids, our relaxing goal was mostly achieved. Actually what was disturbing was the attitud of some fancy/chic people (couples) that think they're kings of the world and so are allowed to make noises and disturb other people while passing by other rooms late at night, speak loudly on their mobiles while having dinner etc, but we can' do much about that and so doesn't the hotel management (maybe that's why we can see some negative critics about H2Otel in here).
To sum up, having to choose between paying the same money for a week during the summer in Algarve or south of Spain, or 3 nights at the H2Otel I wouldn't/don't think twice, I get much more relaxed, stress relieved and simply better after those 3 nights in this place than anywhere else.
