My husband and I spent 13 nights in this hotel in September. The location is superb for lovers of peace and quiet and lovely fresh air being situated on the Ria Formosa. Everything in this 5 star resort is expensive particularly the restaurants and the car hire and a car is essential for both going out to eat and also to play golf at the numerous beautiful courses around this area. We have stayed in this hotel many times before and the service continues to be excellent as does the quality of the food being served . However, it is extremely expensive to stay and eat in this 5 star hotel which would be okay if the bedrooms and bathrooms were modern which they are not. The Wi Fi does not work well in the bedrooms and around the pool area, there are no flat screen on the walls and the bathrooms are very old most of which do not have walk in showers!
It is many years now since the Orient Express Group spent a vast amount of money here before selling the hotel and I am sad to say there has been little modernisation since that sale to the present Portuguese owners . The hotel is freshly painted but the beds, curtains and carpets are all very tired and worn! All the staff try really hard to make your stay enjoyable but there is no Hotel Manager around to complain to since Mr. Alvarez left 2 years ago. A coffee shop area in this hotel would be a great asset as the bar area on the first floor is so old fashioned and dark and it has no hotel lounge in which to sit when the weather is bad.
