Stayed here with my boyfriend in December 2012. Booking was quite difficult as staff does not speak any English, but Google Translator helped a lot. The place is quite new and located about 5-10 minutes from the Ferry. However, as it is a bit uphill I would recommend to take a taxi if you have a lot of luggage (like we did).
I liked the place, it has a little pool, breakfast with a view of the channel and a games/ fitness/ tv room in case the weather disappoints. Also the room was quite nice. The only things I did not like were the view and the service. We booked a Master room with, according to the description, partial sea views, which in my opinion would be a room in which sea view is partially obstructed by a building or another obstacle. What we got was a room from which you could only see the sea when hanging (!!) out of the balcony. When I went to reception and told them in my best Portuguese we specifically booked a Master to have at least a partial sea view, I was told that that would cost us 70 reais extra per night. Secondly, the service wasnt that great. We asked for a nice beach and were sent to the nearest one, which really wasnt that great. When we went to the Tourist Office, we actually found the places we really wanted to see. For those two reasons, I would probably not book the Fruto do Mar for a second time.
