4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

we stayed in Beachfront townhouse. firstly the accommodation was excellent. well appointed fantastic location. I think we were lucky getting these new townhouses. (the white ones on the sea front if you look at the website).

we only managed 1 day in 9 on the beach due to the "rough seas", which was fine as Baleal and Obidos lagoon (our preferred site with our young kids) were only 10mins away. and the pool was small but great.

the resort was not so great, hence the lack of a 5 star review. the marriot pool is not available to use and that, of course is not mentioned on the website (they wanted 35 euros each to use it!). The clubhouse was okay (great team, food okay) although I will say my 6 year old thought their spag bol was excellent.

the kids club int he marriot was very good though as were the people at Club Adventura (the organised activity people at the resort, not the marriot). and this is the point: this is two resorts the marriot and the rest, which is not clear from the website.

the shop was practically useless, (and obviously expensive)

all in all the location and accommodation were excellent, just a little disappointed with the way the resort was organised, but that was probably poor expectation management from the website

Room Tip: get a beachfront residence

This is a very nice resort. We used it for 3 days touring of the surrounding area. While the breakfast restaurant, the Atlantic Grill, was only average, the main dinner restaurant was so good, we returned all 3 nights. Selection of Portugese wines is awesome, and one of the wait staff, Isabella, is an expert. She selected wines for us that were spot-on twice. The third night she was off, and we learned her colleague was quite good, too.

Beware the scrambled eggs at breakfast--very watery and way under-done.

We stayed in a apartment on the large Praia D El Rey Golf resort (we don't play) on the recommendation of a friend. The villas are all very large and comfortable, and each cluster shares a good large pool, so it does not get overcrowded. The resort is large and well looked after, and has a couple of small shops, a club house and restaurant and the large Marriot Hotel. We only used the shops, eating in local restaurants every night. There are horror stories about flies on Tripadvisor, and although they were no were near as bad as some previous reports, they are a bit of a nuisance, especially, with no air conditioning, when you want to leave the doors and windows open. The other draw back is that the site is a long way from anywhere, so you do have quite a drive to get anywhere else. What we loved was the area, Obidos is beautiful, Peniche lively and interesting, and with a good motorway close by, it was possible to drive to Lisbon, Sintra or Fatima for the day, which were all worth visiting. We found lots of nice restaurants and there was a useful guide in the villa which we used; we have never eaten so much fish, and it was all very good. The other draw back is the beach, although beautiful, it is often windy and the sea rough, however you can drive across the resort to a nearby lagoon which had a far more child freindly beeach, and shallow warm water.

We would recommend this as a good combination of apartment, pool and sites to see, but beware of the lack of aitr conditioning in the high summer, and we thought the accomodation might be cold in the winter. If we go to this area again we would probably stay in Obidos, since it was nice, and probably a better centre for travelling around.
