Just got back from here with my wife and two children we stayed for 11 nights. 20th may-31st may.
It was windy on the first couple of days and while my son was playing the wind blew a broken parasol across the grounds and very nearly hit him and all I got from reception was sorry they would have been sorry if it hit him.
The room was too small for four people and not enough storage, balcony was very small and the hand rail was low and my children could have easily climbed over.
The public areas are too small for the amount of guests the hotel can hold.
A couple of members of staff were a bit rude to me but I just ignored the morons.
The food wasn't all that many times the meat was under cooked (mushy roast beef and raw bacon) also new food being put on top of old food, there was no rotation of food.
The food in the pool bar was to a good standard.
The kids clubs were ok too when we used them.
The entertainment needs to be on a 2 week rota instead of 1 week because we seen the same acts twice.
We met some lovely people and if it wasn't for them I think we would have gone mad.
We did eat out a few times, Armacao de pera is quite and a little bit more expensive than other places in portugal but you can get taxis anywhere.
The hotel itself is very nice inside and clean.
Most of the staff are fantastic and do a great job.
Also go and meet Bruno in the bar he is a nice guy and the sangria is very nice.
I don't think we would go back until our children are older as its all spaced out and my daughter fell over a number of times (uneven paths and high kerbs)
oh and zoo marine is a must it was an amazing day kids loved it.
