A great choice of seafood as the fisherman land their catches adjacent to the Hotel. The yellow fin catch of the day was so filling but great.

I really enjoyed our visit. Nothing exceptional or excellent. A really nice room. Good services for hotel dinner, but the bistro not so good. Lovely pool area with staff on hand to ensure all runs smoothly.

Caesar Salad was definitely not a traditional Caesar. No anchovies, all mixed lettuce served with tomatoes, Parmesan shavings and rock hard croutons. The steak came with a bowl of this awful pseudo garlic that stunk to high heaven! Service was slow.

Prices are really expensive especially for the quality you get! (horrible shrimps and everything on the mix plate is cold, even the hake). The view is nice but the ambience is for 3rd age Staff really nice though
