Ideal hotel for short relaxing break. yes rooms could have done with a lick of paint and there is no kettle but there is a fridge and heating/ air con that works and rooms are clean. breakfast wasn't that bad. choice of hot or cold, cereals, toast, lovely fresh rolls, "Portugese" bread, brioche rolls, fresh pineapple, coffee, tea, various juices. You could have as much food and drink as you wanted. every room had a balcony overlooking the beach/sea. Bar/lounge area is lovely and also has a balcony.
the only pool is indoors (currently being refurbished but shuttle buses available to 2 other hotels for pool use) so would have to sunbathe on the beach- no pool to lounge around in summer. Cafe/ snack bar on ground floor and steps to beach. Convenient for shops and nightlife. Staff throughout hotel very friendly and polite. arrived 9.30 am and able to go straight to room. also offered to stay in room until transfer pickup time.
The price we paid for this hotel was so cheap it would be a cheek to complain about anything. I wonder how much Talisman 26 paid to stay here?
