We have just returned from a long weekend, Friday to Tuesday to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday and the only way to describe the hotel, staff, rooms and location is Total perfection.
On our arrival Sofia, the receptionist, noted it was my wife's birthday the following day and offered to book us a table in the restaurant and gave us a token for a complimentary bottle of wine which we gratefully accepted.
In the restaurant on Saturday evening we were greeted with a glass of Rose' wine and served the most enjoyable meal we had eaten in a long time.
The staff were very friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
At the end of the meal we were too full for a desert but my wife was presented with a serving of Tiramisu topped with a candle and the staff wished her a happy birthday on behalf of the hotel.
Throughout our stay we wanted for nothing.
Reviews may show the location and photos of the Hotel, but to experience the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, you need to stay at the Palacio Das Cardosas.
