I spent three days at Oliva Nova and was highly impressed with the staff. The food was well prepared and well priced, which is much as you would require of such an establishment but the staff were really excellent, which elevated the place beyond my normal expectations.
The access to the beach and views of the mountains are splendid. The golf course is accommodating to the higher handicap golfer without being too easy for the better player.
All in all, a well run hotel.
