I have been wanted to visited V. N. De Milfontes for a long time and now I finally did it! If you wish to only visit the village and the river side, two days is enough. Initially we chose the HS milfontes hotel but this one was the one with the indoor pool. Little did I know that the water was freezing and you had to use swim caps (4.50€ each at the hotel). We used the jacuzzi which was good and the sauna. I had the opportunity to have a massage by Kerry and it was amazing, she is incredible and probably one of the highlights from the mini break - although the location of the Spa should be rethinked as you could here noise from the bar and the upper floor.
We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which looked very old but we did not spend much time in it. The isolation of the walls was terrible. We could hear the noise from other apartments and there was a polish team onsite which made noise very early playing chess just outside of our bedroom window.
The food on the buffet (breakfast and dinner), although good, was always the same.
Overall we expected a better place to be but for a 2 day break is all you need.More
