We stayed at this hotel for one night during a bus tour across Spain and Portugal. Let me tell you, I wish we had stayed here for a week. It is amazing!
The rooms are more like little condos, attached to one another in different sections. We were in section 15. The room (1501) was large, clean and modern. We had a very large bed (King size) and a lovely spacious bathroom. The air conditioning worked wonderfully as well. I had a wonderful night's sleep. We also had a patio area with chairs.
I was looking forward to this pool and it did not disappoint. We stayed there during the week, so it was not crowded. There were plenty of chairs and towels for everyone. The pool is large so there is plenty of space to swim around. Make sure to ask for your towel card back after you are done with your towels, because you need to give it back at check-out.
Wifi is available for free in the lobby area only, but there are about a dozen sofas for people to sit and relax.
We decided to opt out of the buffet dinner that was served that night at the hotel. Instead, we chose to have a few tapas and drinks at the pool bar. Later, we came up to the main bar close to the lobby and had Portuguese appetizers, sandwiches and drinks. The food was excellent and the service was lovely. It took quite a while to get our food however, but the bar tender/waiter was so nice to us that we did not mind waiting around.
The buffet breakfast was included in our stay and was wonderful. There were a ton of options. There is a crepes and omelette bar that I completely missed. Make sure to look for it when you go in.
The only down side to this hotel is that it is not centrally located. So if you want to go out and explore, you need to take a shuttle (I think the hotel offers one) or a taxi.
