Just arrived back 08/08/12. Reception looked a bit dated, so I was slightly worried. Was shown to our room. Studio apartment. It was lovely, big, airy and spotlessly clean. Air con and safe included at no extra charge. Two pool areas, one less busy, we choose the bigger pool as it was more lively. Lovely and clean . We was staying bed and breakfast, this is a continental breakfast, but very nice, the restaurant provides some lovely food and not expensive. Staff are polite and very helpful. We had trouble with our tv, it was not tuned in properly (wanted to keep up to date with the Olympics ) we reported it, an hour later it was sorted. The harbour is a 10 minute walk away. The spar mini market and big supermarket also just down the road. They do not have a shop on site. The harbour itself is beautiful, a few restaurants were quite pricey and to be honest not the best food. We found a lovely place Ostra D'Ouro near the Portugal sports shop. Amazing food. Fish to die for. Would highly reccomend the pinhal da Marina. Hope this review helps.
