We had a great time here this Christmas for the second year. All the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Fantastic value for money if you go all inclusive. The extra cost for A I is well worth the money. Even if you do decide to go out to eat for a change. Although we were finding the evening meals a little repetitive, there was always something we could eat, infact I'd say we probably ate more healthly.
Concerning the weather .....we had one cloudy day and half a day of dense fog (see photos) but we still managed to return home with a nice tan. I would say that it is T shirt and shorts weather at this time of year if you like to spend time on the beach and the temperature starts to drop after 15:30. There can be a slightly nippy breeze too. Hey ho, but that's much better than home though!
Things to take with you....A kettle and a Hair dryer as they don't have them in your room.
You can get bottled water from the bar so don't bother doing the lugging around of 2/3Lt bottle from the local supermarkets until you settle in. The all inclusive bar finishes at 10pm, but the bar stays open till 12am during which time you have to pay.
Although there is no entertainment at the hotel I found some traditional Portugese live music being played across the road from the hotel, in a little bright green kiosk with a tent like extension. We went there Christmas Eve and it was great fun they were very welcoming, child friendly and it is liscenced if you want a drink.
The only down side is that I came across a couple of silver fish in our room, despite our room being cleaned everyday. Something I shall be watching out for if we return next year.
All in all a great Christmas get away.
