I stayed at the hotel for a few days at the beginning of November.
The overall hotel is good, a bit "tired", but as is normal with "beach hotels".
Some reviews mention direct access to the beach, but, I didn't found it ! Anyway, even if you have access, the hotel is on top of a cliff, so, access wouldn't be easy.
Anyway, the pool and surrounding grounds are nice, and you have some nice views.
The negative point for me is that they announce "free wifi access on public areas", but, you have to ask on reception for a username/password that gives you 30 min. of access. However, the access is so bad and slow, that you use almost all your time to open your first web page! I gave out, and used my own 3G access to do what I needed, and that was way faster.
Also I found that prices on bar were a bit high (for Portugal's level). Every day there is a cheaper "day's cocktail", but the quality... well... I found it's even lower than the cocktails you have in all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean !
Anyway, staff is friendly, rooms are clean, and the small kitchen inside the room is a plus.
