Stayed in one of the Premium rooms having a full view of the beach, very large, with huge balcony (let down by the lack of a sun bed, apparently they don't have them on balconies) Table and chairs were good. Full kitchen facilities, bed was the usual hard variety found in Portugal !!.
Staff everywhere were very kind, courteous, nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast buffet was fabulous, every conceivable combination of fruit, bread, cereals, cheese, bacon, etc
only thing missing for British fans of the full english was a fried egg, there were however boiled eggs.
The hotel is right on the beach at Praia Da Rocha and at the quieter end of town though I daresay it could be a bit lively outside in midsummer but in October it was very quiet.
WiFi is available for a fee, we paid 10 Euros for an hour that did us for a week to check email, etc.
As it's name suggest the hotel is oriental in design, all white marble, beautifully designed and furnished. There is a beautiful green area outside the hotel with many sun beds and large umbrellas, very spaced out, not sitting on top of one another. The pool is at the side of the hotel with it's own bar and menu (closed whilst we were there) The only issue we had was parking, we had a hire car for the week and there are only 3 or 4 spaces available outside the hotel, it was by chance if we found a space, if not we had to drive 2 to 300 yards and park up in a side street. All in all, a very, very nice place to stay.
