I wish I could write something (anything!) positive about this hotel but sadly it's just not possible. This tiny Island is beautiful and the people are lovely but the hotel is dreadful, despite its lovely location. The food in the restaurant was recycled from one meal to the next and worse, from one day to the next. We were there for 4 days and by the end, I had to remove the tablecloth from any table we sat at because the staff were just turning them over. Not one tablecloth went anywhere near a laundry! On our last morning, at breakfast, one of our travelling companions opened a sweet bun and insects cascaded out onto his plate. Needless to say, we all left the table hungry. As the days went by, less and less fresh fruit or desserts were made available. Our room, a suite, was spacious enough but never kept clean and as the days passed the water from the shower diminished to a trickle and was foul-smelling. Definitely hazardous to the health. The pool area was sad and the bar pathetic and usually unattended. The beauty of the Island helped keep our spirits up, especially the wonderful Praia de Café. However, the Pestana group should be ashamed of themselves for keeping this hotel opened.
