Stayed overnight on our way to Oporto. This is really a very nice, if older property. The friendliness and hospitality of the staff more than make up for the age of the facility. Heck, even I am getting older all the time.
Great views, a fine Breaskfast Buffet, good coffee. Comfortable rooms, good spa facilities (sauna, Turkish, jacuzzi, big pool).
Even tho we are only staying overnight, the Director came to the desk and introduced himself. Classy. Mr. Ruben, the Spa Manager, is very friendly and accommodating. My bride and I booked massages (more of a relaxing rub with oil, than a work out the Knicks massage). I asked about places to eat, and Ruben went out of his way to offer several local suggestions... No better way to find a good place to eat... Ask a local.
Would definitely be a five star property.. Especially based on the staff and service... But she is a bit older and needs some updating. Easy to overlook. Great location for a beach holiday.
