We stayed for 5 nights for a family wedding.
As a competing body builder, it was important to me to stay somewhere with a gym. The hotel is fantastic for sports lovers! As well as a gym and 2 pools, there's an astroturf equipped for tennis or football, bikes to hire, and it's a nice place for a run. Over the road there's a mountain bike course, canopy ropes course and more football pitches. Nearby there are great surfing beaches (we went to the Angel's Surf School at Carcaveloss which was great!).
The gym is geared towards cardio. There are plenty of bikes / crosstrainers / treadmills. There are some weights machines and a set of dumbells going up to 26k only. It would be much improved if they got a squat station. There are no cables etc. either. It's fine for the average gym user, and ok for a week off season.
The apartment was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped, although I wouldn't want to do any serious cooking there due to a lack of utensils. The restaurant offered a great buffet for breakfast and evening meals - there were plenty of clean options for those worried about their diets (and plenty of puddings for those who are not!).
The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and it seemed no request was too big or too small.
I would recommend the hotel for families as well - there's even a play room for the kids and babysitting available.
We booked the smallest room and it was spacious and great for a couple.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for a fun / relaxing holiday in Lisbon!
