We stayed here by chance after our initial hotel choice was not able to accommodate us on the first night. We are so lucky that this was the case.
The hotel is a boutique in the truest sense of the word. There is a lot of attention to detail. Rooms are serene, clean, and feel luxurious but also authentic. The pool area is peaceful and perfect for sunbathing among the absolutely stunning gardens that are filled with fragrant flowers and trees and there is an honesty style bar where you can get drinks.
We had both breakfast which was fresh and plentiful and a 3 course dinner which was served by candlelight in the garden and cooked by a very talented in-house chef. While there is no menu, we were asked about any preferences we had. The food was wonderfully fresh and true to Portuguese cuisine.
Miguel, the manager, was wonderfully welcoming and helpful, however when he is not there, the other staff have little understanding of English but personally I like this as it makes the whole experience feel more traditional and exotic.
The hotel is not particularly close to the town or beaches and definitely requires either a rental vehicle or you will need to use taxis. Miguel organised a very affordable scooter for us and for a couple, was a really wonderful and romantic way of getting to the nearby beaches and towns. However if you are only staying for a night or 2 then there would be no need to even leave the hotel. Without a doubt I would return to stay here again.
Tips: Bring some insect repellant- while the gardens are stunning, they do attract loads of insects and wasps and without repellant they can become annoying
There are no nearby shops, so bring all the essentials you may need such as suntan lotion, snacks etc.
