After 10 days' driving from Cherbourg to Faro Return, staying in Paradores, Pousadas and various hotels, my wife and I voted Hotel Belsol the best value-for-money of all for a stop-over.
Wine was less than half the price on the Algarve.
Accommodation at €55 B&B was great value and included A/C which a Paradore at €144 B*B did not include.
Food was very good basic Portuguese.
Service was very efficient and friendly, even when communication was mostly through sign-language.
In short, it was as good a stop-over experience as any. But at a total cost for accommodation, food and plenty of wine of €107 it compared very favorably with the €250+ we tended to pay elsewhere.
