Our holiday got off to a bad start when we were given a small and dated room on the third floor. Upon complaining we were told we could move to room 701 the next day by a very kind and helpful Mr Joselino Santos. This room was perfect with two balconies, one of which directly faced the sea. It was much larger, more comfortable and had a good size bathroom.
The food at the hotel was poor. Better cuts of meat could have been used and the selection of food was both poor at breakfast and the evening meal and either warm or sometimes cold. The waiters were very slow at clearing the tables and replacing the food. I also found the price of drinks high, particularly the small bottles of water. There is no entertainment at this hotel and it was very dull in the evenings.
The hotel is well placed but if it is your first trip to the area you will find it very hilly. Also remember that it can be noisy due to work taking place during the day.
