Staff: very enthusiastic,helpful and courteous.
cleanliness: rooms acceptable and clean.did not use the kitchenatte so can't comment,towels not changed every other day,should have been upfront to inform green/cost issues.
restaurant: basic but acceptable and good value for money. The main lady incharge and the staff are very good, the gray haired male at the Bar has passed his sell-by date...chaarged us 1.50EURO for a little of milk for Tea which we asked for because of our unusual late check-in time......,it should have been free.
Location: is very good ,but a little way out of the main town centre and the excellent Beach is on average 15 min walk from the hotel.
Entertaintment: None to write home about...near enough nothing except attempts to create a n atmosphere.Nice and quite if that s what you want, good for families who only require lodgings and no children's activities.
Careful of the half price excursions you pick up from the town centres, basically all represent the same company who are rather BASIC and BORING. Short changed us...BIG TIME. Even though we didn't use the "Follow Me" [MISTAKE]....observation tells us they would have been better.
For people who don't know the area, it's a bubble "made" and constructed for tourists, locals can't be seen, heard or mix with......Would suit some people........but not if you expect to experience the portugese culture..rather artificial.
Generally this area of Portugal is rather desolate, remote, nothing much by way of the standards of the other tourist trails BUT good Sea,Beaches and warm welcome with very good value.
