Reception closed on arrival and no contact telephone numbers answered with no explanation or note left - Forced to stay in a neighbouring hotel for the night. To date no explanation or apology. Day two Reception closed but envelope with instructions (no apology) taped to reception door (had obviously been forgotten the day before). Accommodation basic and clean and the pool appeared to be clean also. Accommodation in state of disrepair - Toilet flush mechanism broken, bath filled when showering as drainage poor, broken window taped up and kettle only worked if you stood and held the button down. Some paving slabs out of place and quite dangerous and pool area toilet door warped so often stuck closed (impossible for children to open whether in or out). No sun umbrellas by the pool and no shade. Only suitable if you are prepared to sleep in your hire car on the first night and take your own porta loo, kettle and sun umbrellas. However, bar and bistro area by the pool is run by a separate entity and if you are unlucky enough to stay at Prado do Golf, at least the food and beverages are of good quality and reasonably priced.
