After deciding we wanted to go to Portugal, we did a lot of research and found this hotel. We booked on hotels4u at an amazing rate, and we couldn't have been more happy with our stay.
The hotel was clean and modern, and the room was comfortable and a good size. The pool area is lovely, as are the hotel grounds.
One of the best things was the AMAZING breakfast!! And the staff were brilliant - all so friendly and helpful, particularly the girl on reception (Paula, I believe?) The mini-spa was lovely too, and was complementary to use.
The only negative aspect would be location if you don't have a car. We would recommend renting a car and bringing a sat nav - our car was under £100 for 7 days and we explored the areas and even went to Lisbon for the day.
All-in-all, we would not hesitate in coming back here, but we did see the actual rates at the front desk (which were a lot more than we paid) so a return stay would be dependent on the price at the time. Portugal itself is wonderful - excellent, cheap food (as long as you avoid major tourist spots) and lovely people.
