We spent a week here from the 8th January, hotel was of an excellent standard. Our room was very large and comfortable with a fridge and air con. Good quality furnishings. Dressing gown and large fully towels. The breakfast was very nice, cava, good orange juice and coffee, the food was very samey though, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, tomatoes and also the same cooked meats every day. Bread was excellent as were the small portuguese tarts. There was a large conference for a few days when we were there, so we expected lots of noise, especially late at night, but it was extremely quiet. We thought the staff would be overwhelmed with this amount of people (200), but seemed to do a good job. We did notice a bit of a smell coming from the water, which I assume would be much stronger in the summer, and might be a bit off putting. We both had a full body massage which were half price and were very good, we were offered fruit teas and water at the end. Didn't try the pool as you needed a cap, we used the gym most days and this was more than adequate. We asked at reception for a kettle, and as a previous person has mentioned, they would charge for use of the cups which is a bit much. Had a cocktail in the bar which was very nice. Hotel is pretty handy for the ferry, we went to Farol, not a thing open, so walked to Cultera, about a hour and a halfs walk, few cafes open, probably better in the summer. Not too far to the train station, only about 15 minutes, trains were cheap, we went to Faro for a few hours and also to Tavira which was pleasant. We took the small train to see the area which was only about 2 euros 75 each. Market day is Saturday, so it was nice to see lots of people going about their business.
