Booked the hotel on the basis of other reviews, for the final destination of a working trip to Portugal and a more romantic weekend. Arrived about 12.00, friendly welcome but room was not ready (we did not expect it to be) so left our luggage and went for a walk and some lunch. Our room was ready on our return - such a lovely room with two balconies to bedroom and one in bathroom. All windows have shutters so there is no problem with too much light and it is so lovely to open them in the morning and see the sunshine. Great room, just loved it, and a good bathroom with double sink, bidet, bath shower and Molton Brown toiletries - and lots of sunshine. Everything you need in room is supplied (mini bar, safe, wifi, umbrella, bathrobes - and so lovely to have a decent hairdryer!). Bed was 6ft wide and was very comfortable - such a great sleep.
You pay extra for breakfast. It was good but basic however eggs are nice and fresh and coffee was good. There is also a Nespresso machine. Some people may not like eating in low lounge chairs. It was challenging not to drop food in your lap but relaxing nevertheless. At the weekend there were many tables which had not been cleared (this aspect was a bit slow) so it was not always easy to find a table that was clean and laid. The coffee area is also a bit small so had to wait as some guests really do take their time.
Reception did not tell us that there are complementary drinks all day and port at night. We eventually worked it out but the sign for this was very small. It was such a nice treat and the coffee and teas are very good quality; port in the evening was nice.
Pool downstairs is very small but ok to refresh. Lighting in corridors is a bit dark but loved the pictures on the walls of the lift.
Staff are nice and we had a good check-in but beyond that not very pro-active. This changed on the Monday when we checked out so it may be that at weekends some are a bit more nervous of being welcoming to guests. One receptionist on two separate occasions gave us incorrect information (which train station/ cost of taxi to airport) so it might be a case of confusion in English..
Overall a lovely experience largely influenced by such a great room.
