Good points: nice accommodation, modern, clean, reasonably equipped. Fruit and mineral water on arrival.
Bad points: a sofa would have improved the living area and the drawers very stiff. Air conditioning very loud.
The pool area-
Good points: idyllic garden area, quiet, reasonable sized pool- absolute relaxation, good gas BBQ (we didn't use it but it was popular with the other guests), bar had reasonable selection
Bad points: none
Good points: it's not as far away as some reviews make out, we timed our walks as follows: Supermarket (intermarche) - 18 mins, City walls- 30 mins, main restaurant area- 35 mins, Marina- 45 mins. Taxi cost about 5-6 Euro from city centre. The local restaurant Restaurant Atalaia was only 5 minutes walk away and had great food at very reasonable prices so no need to go too far afield for dinner. The restaurant also had a great set price lunch. You can easily stay here without a car if you are only looking for a lazy holiday. With a car, everything in local area would be within 15 minutes.
Bad points: might have gone to beach if it had been easier to walk to (most direct route as shown on google maps goes through what turned out to be private land). At a guess it would be a 40 minute walk.
Service was great- the staff were nice, friendly and helpful. They even provided free transport to the hotel owned Beach Bar (definitely worth a visit!) one of the nights we were there.
