I stayed here early May 2014 with my adult daughter and had 5 wonderful days. Adult only, small and intimate with first rate service from every one of the staff. We had a pool view room on the third floor with a lovely view of the pool, gardens and sea beyond. room was quite spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast tasty and plentiful with more than enough choice. We had dinner in the restaurant once and lunch by the pool a few times, food was excellent. There is a gorgeous beach 2 mins walk from the hotel with a couple of nice restaurants, we particularly liked Pedras Amerelas, the furthest left on the beach. Unfortunately I didn't get into the spa but will make sure I do next visit. Pool area is really nice and spacious with plenty of comfy sunbeds no one put towels out to reserve beds as it was completely unnecessary. Every where was pristine and very well maintained and we came back thoroughly relaxed and chilled. I would give this hotel 5 stars. Will definitely be back.
