A well established, well run hotel with efficient, friendly and knowledgeable staff, everywhere was spotlessly clean. Unfortunately too cold and wet to use the pool area which looked pleasant enough, the hotel itself did arrange various activities but we did not use these as we were out all day. Good facilities including a gym, location was excellent with a supermarket adjacent and plenty of restaurants in the immediate area. The beach is a good 5 minutes walk (quickest access is through the Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos apartments directly opposite the hotel, stay left into a lane and down the steps).
As we were on a timeshare exchange with RCI I was a little disappointed with the apartment itself, it would have been fine as straightforward holiday apartment but I do expect top-quality fittings and furnishings on an exchange. The pillows were the lumpiest I have ever seen and I had an incontinence sheet on my bed, the rustling disturbing me every time I turned over! Our main moan was the poor level of lighting everywhere except the bathroom. The cooking facilities consisted of a microwave and 2 ring hob, no oven. I don't care if it had no washing machine and coffee maker etc, I am on holiday, I eat out and take my washing home but the facilities are usually there if I want them. Having said that, I would definitely recommend this hotel because of the location and facilities, the apartment was cleaned and sheets changed regularly, the bathroom was bright and spacious with bath as well as shower and there was a large veranda overlooking the road (I had specifically asked not to), parking is limited but was not a problem when we stayed.
