Rooms: very big and comfortable
Cleaning in the rooms: Could be better
Staff: Some of them at the reception desk need to be reminded of being a little bit more attentive. (Anecdote: We heard one person at the reception desk recommend "Cipriani" when someone asked for a place to eat pizza with no mention whatsoever of the price or category of the restaurant - really malicious)
Pools: Excellent but nobody takes a shower before getting into the pool and the pool attendants ignore this- most people, though, smear themselves with sun creams and lotions so the showers are necessary. There is a small drawing of a shower by the steps into the pool but it is not enough as a reminder, obviously.
Breakfast: Varied, nice pastries (not too much variety there, though, considering the quality and variety of Portuguese confectionery), poor juices (not fresh), very small water / juice glasses.
Wi-fi: very poor; besides, it does not work with all types of gadgets
