The manager has already responded to foofoo_11, but as a guest who has just booked his eighth stay at the hotel I would also like to respond.
I understand the frustration that the hotel booked was closed, but would suggest that any blame does indeed lie with Expedia. Hotel Quinta do Lago is approximately 2-3 miles from the Ria Park and definitely represents an upgrade rather than a like for like swap. The pool is average sized rather than small. The grounds and garden are not small. It is not rigid, corporate, unfriendly, lacking in care or personal touch in any way, shape or form. I find the decor of the rooms somewhat dated but this is a matter of personal taste. The sea is not far away and 'what looked like a marsh before it' is the Ria Formosa, a World Heritage Site no less! Restaurant prices are typical for a five star hotel. And no, I am not a footballer nor a corporate client. And the only thing utterly vulgar is foofoo_11's review.
