This was a disapointing experience, as the hotel has some great reviews and beautiful photographs. We stayed in a very basic room at the front of the hotel, which was very noisy with the cars and late night revellers. The room had far too many cupboards and was a bit cramped. The telly was in front of the bed instead of the sofa round the corner and the grout around the bath had disapeared, so water must have been leaking somewhere. The court yard is pretty, but was permanetly in the shade and it would have been nice to have some sun.
The public rooms are very nice indeed and the corridors have lovely vaulted ceilings.
I asked the reception staff if they could check us in for our flight on line because I did not have a laptop with me and my request was declined, which delayed us at the airport. This was in our view uincharacteristic, as the Portuguese are usually really helpful. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding?
Oh, it is also very convienient for night life and taxis are cheap. There is a a good restaurant close by called the Guarda Mor.
