I enjoyed Lisbon and this hotel last year on a quickly planned visit, so I took more time this year and decided it was good enough to go again. The hotel remains a good choice. However, there has been a change of chef and the food, although good, not as good as last year with too many buffet meals for a 4 star. Lilana continues to give exceptional service and create a great atmosphere. Some nice waiters as well including Raphael. The breakfasts now tend to be cold regardless of the time you get down in the mornings, and there is no change of menu. This all sounds bad; the reality is that it is acceptable for the price paid.
The weather this year was below par, and only now, later in the season appears to be picking up.
The city itself remains a great place to visit. However, getting around in the heat is not easy if you are a mature visitor and the pavements both dangerous and slippery. There are very steep hills to negotiate as well. Taxis however are reliable and cheap enough. Public transport better still. Get a Via Viagem card for the Metro but then you need another one for the TST busses. Combining them is not possible. However, with both, you can get to the wonderful Costa Caparica where beaches to suit all tastes can be found, as well as to other destination easily. Sat nav on your phone is a huge benefit as navigating the maze of streets is otherwise difficult. El Corte Inglis is a good shopping centre, with a supermarket 2 floors down where you can get good wines and soft drinks reasonably priced, for day or evening consumption.
