Lovely place-couldn't fault the views. Hotel was ok and breakfast varied. Beware of travelling during the college/school breaks in Portugal-hotel is close to nightclubs which means there is noise and racing cars from the youth from 11pm to 8 am. My sister, who travelled during low season had a lovely time.

The staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was busy at times but the staff found tables and replenished the buffet. The rooms were clean and the shower was good. The beds are firm, too firm for some. Safe in the room does need to be paid for. Could be difficult for mobility for wheelchair users. Less than 5 mins...
