Wow! This place was home away from home (and possibly even nicer). The room, garden, breakfast, pool, surrounding area - this place had it all. It is a bit "vintage" looking from the outside and may even be overlooked by most people - but that would be a mistake. The rooms were furnished with antiques and while the bathroom was a bit dated - the rest of the room made up for it two-fold. The garden area (orange grove and other fresh fruits/vegetables) is open to guests to stroll in day and night - and is well worth it - so peaceful and relaxing. The pool is the older stone bottom style versus the standard blue paint, which just made it all the more inviting. The staff was friendly, warm and despite some language barriers - pleasant to deal with. The breakfast (fresh orange juice daily from the grove) was fantastic and included. Then comes the little village - quaint, quiet, yet alive with locals Good food (fresh fish), good people, and full of charm. Additionally, the nearby mega-mall (Freeport Outlet Mall) is a nice little jaunt from the center of town and has even more local restaurants to sample. This review can go on and on about this little place...but I'll conclude with this: worlds better than staying in Lisbon and given the chance, I'd return tomorrow.
