Is CS Sao Rafael really in dire straits?

I've just read some recent reviews of the CS Sao Rafael Atlantic Hotel and more than one poster said this hotel group is struggling. Is this true? My wife would like to go to the Algarve next Sep and this hotel looks good, but I'm now a bit wary about it.

Thanks. The CS Sao Rafael Atlantic would really suit us but we'll probably avoid it as the recent reviews aren't encouraging, especially if it's in receivership.

I would also avoid. The whole CS group nearly went under and the local landscape is littered with their half built hotel resort projects, now crumbling into ruin.

Some of their places weren't taking bookings last summer. I haven't looked into the current situation.
