Having looked high and low on the internet for a place to stay over the year-end period in Southern Europe (mainly Algarve, Porto, Cascais or Southern Spain) I stumbled across rather positive remarks on Tripadvisor regarding this hotel.
Let me put first and overall: great place.
Very positive points are the comfort level, space, extended breakfast and above all the friendlyness of the paople. This is for me always very important and I think I'm not alone seen the huge remarks on Tripadvisor regarding impolite staff.
the website gives a good idea how it is apart from teh fact that the pool(s) look bigger than they are
Here are a few remarks, but please do not see them as decisively negative:
- pools, especially indoor pool are small
- badly signposted (one sign 2 km away)
- difficult road (for that last 2 km)
- bathinggown largest size is a Portuguese XL. In other words I didn't fit in.
- local restaurant (very) upmarked (€€€) and nouvelle cuisine/experimental.
We were there over the year-end and the price was more than worthwhile.
Oh, by the way, they don't have rooms, but two bedroom suites (each with their own TV), and sitting room with TV and DVD and a dining place with kitchen. Internet is hardcabled and FREE !!!
