We stayed the last week in October with our 15 yr old son and the first thing to note is that over 12 yr olds are required to have a room of their own. The tropical gardens are lush and beautiful, providing lovely aspects from the balcony (sea views are sideways on), from the breakfast terrace, pool (cold) and many seating areas. The staff are excellent and so friendly. Hotel is scrupulously clean. Without a car, and a few days of rain, there wasn't much to do other than the indoor pool and the table tennis, which was taken away when the hotel hosted a conference, despite twice asking if it could be relocated. We found the restaurant excellent although quite expensive if a la carte,averaging 150 euros for 3 and drinking water, not wine. Next time we would opt for half-board as not many other options nearby. Despite rave reviews, we didn't like Julia's at all - def not fine dining, children running around and tv's on. (107 euros).Would recommend walking 30 mins along beach, skimming stones, for lunch at Sandbanks at Vale do lobo, where there is a great crazy golf course too. Fruit and water and port in room and chocolate on pillows are a lovely touches. Beach is 10mins walk away along residential road and miles in each direction.
